Performance

They claim "up to 200x" speed, which would be 30 MB/sec. The actual write speed I see is about 13 MB/sec (87x). And, this gets a lot slower if writing many small files. The read speed is actually about 30 MB/sec. Both of these speeds are significantly faster than most USB flash drives, but not as fast as they imply. -------------------(new paragraph)------------------- The drive has a rubber housing that looks and feels pretty cool, but it makes it too fat to plug in next to anything else without torquing the USB connector. I removed the housing, but then the plastic was pretty flimsy (which I fixed with superglue).
