Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review

Lexar JumpDrive 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review

Lexar JumpDrive 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: In this review PCSTATS is checking out Lexar's stylish 64GB JumpDrive Triton - a nice looking retractable thumb drive housed in a weighty metal alloy case. Lexar's USB 3.0 thumb drive is rated for speeds of 155MB/s read and 150MB/s write -- that's pretty quick. For a clearer picture of its capabilities PCSTATS will need to benchmark the Lexar JumpDrive Triton against comparable USB 3.0 drives of similar capacities.

USB 3.0 Flash Benchmarks - Sisoft Sandra 2012, File Transfer Test

SiSoft Sandra 2012 - Removable Storage Test Source:Sandra

Sandra is designed to test the theoretical power of a complete system and individual components. The numbers taken though are again, purely theoretical and may not represent real world performance. Higher numbers represent better performance.

In Sandra 2012, the Lexar JumpDrive Triton 64GB USB 3.0 flash drive results peak at 168MB/s (read) and 110MB/s (write) in the 256MB file test. By comparison, the SanDisk Extreme scores 188MB/s & 159MB/s, respectively.

8.5GB Single File Time Transfer Test

For this test a single 8.5GB, high definition 1080p .MKV movie 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 TeraCopy.

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 removable storage device, but this is practical and fun!

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 3.0 port. Reading from the drive was quick to, 2:21 (59MB/s).

Conclusions

To be useful, a USB memory stick should just work; plug it in, copy files back and forth and toss it in a pocket without fear of something breaking. The quicker it moves data and the more data it holds, all the better. With a demonstrated peak sequential 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.

If you've been sitting on the fence, now is the time to retire that collection of old USB 2.0 thumb drives and upgrade into one, large capacity USB 3.0 drive.

With a cost of around $1.89 per GB of storage, or $121USD/CDN for the 64GB flash drive, the Lexar JumpDrive Triton is a pretty good package.

The Lexar JumpDrive Triton does require a motherboard or laptop with a USB 3.0 port to take full advantage of the interface, but most desktop PCs since 2010 and notebooks released in 2012 come with a couple USB 3.0 ports.

While the SanDisk Extreme proved itself a bit quicker and cheaper, if style 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 geek?
