  • Summary: If you are going by windows speed indicator, then you'd have to be saving to an SSD or RAID-0, as most internal hard drives can't write anywhere near 100MB sec. So how do people know it's not reading that fast? It's most likely the hard drive they are transfering TO, that's the slow part. Example.
  • Pros: I do not own this product, but I probably buy it soon.
  • Cons: NA

  • Summary: No USB drive can read 100 MB/s sustained, even USB 3.0 drives. My advice to you is take performance ratings with a grain of salt. There's almost always be slower, and sometimes far slower.
  • Pros: *USB 3.0 *Can be formatted to NTFS *Faster than almost any 16 GB USB 2.0 drive
  • Cons: *Not as fast as advertised speeds

  • Pros: Case feels sturdy. Read times are good on USB 3.0.
  • Cons: I know it, you know it: the first thing you thought when seeing "105mb/s read times!" is "okay, so how fast can it write?" Answer is, not at all. "If you lost this sticker that means software warranty were terminate. " That's up front in the manual. So needless to say I didn't read the rest. "Tur...

  • Summary: Por fin llegó el tan esperado usb 3.0,sin duda un gran avance que ra ya muy necesario y estaba tardando en aparecer. Con los nuevos sistemas de almacenamientos externos con capacidades de cientos de gigas,el 2.0 se estaba quedando lento y desesperante.
  • Pros: gran capacidad
  • Cons: el precio,que bajará en pocos meses
