AKA, the Sandisk Cruiser Extreme.

This is the Sandisk Cruiser Extreme 64gb on USB 2!

Notice how on random small file writes and reads it beats out this 2TB hard disk. The HDD is not a bad model, its a Samsung I’ve had for years. That’s just on USB 2.

What about USB 3?

This is insane. Only on 512MB writes does the hard disk even have a chance. On everything else its destroyed.

What about an early SSD?

Ah now we see. It fairs very well, but just can’t the random reads of the Kingston 96GB SSD. Its trounced by a modern SSD, even a VFM one like the MX100.

However by every other metric the Sandisk Cruiser Extreme is the fastest flash drive I have EVER seen.

Oh and BTW here is the slowest 64GB USB stick Sandisk make.
