file is copied from a Western Digital Raptor WD740 system disk to the removable storage
device, then from the removable storage device to the system disk. Teracopy is
used to monitor transfer times and speeds. While this test is influenced by the
system disk SATA controller, it provides a straightforward real world indication of sustained transfer
rates. Higher transfer speeds and lower transfer times are best. Speed and time are monitored with

The single large file time transfer test is a sign
of the times; how long must you wait to share a HD 1080p 8.5GB MKV movie
with a friend? I'm sure there are more technical ways of approaching

Lexar's JumpDrive Triton 64GB USB 3.0 flash drive was able to
copy a 8.5GB file from the host computer in 2:51 (48MB/s) via the USB

read speed of 178MB/s Read and 180MB/s Write in the 1,000MB
CrystalDiskMark test, Lexar's 64GB USB 3.0 JumpDrive Triton flash
drive meets its advertised speeds.

With a cost of around $1.89 per GB of storage, or $121USD/CDN for the 64GB

is your game and you want a metal USB 3.0 drive that doesn't feel flimsy in the
hand (as the SD Extreme felt at times), then the Lexar JumpDrive Triton is well
worth your consideration... or perhaps as a stocking stuffer for that special
