Testing the Super Talent USB Drives

SiSoft Sandra 2005 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.

The Super Talent DH series of USB drives all deliver very consistent results and they're mighty impressive! All read values are 33MB/s which is actually higher than the 200x rating that Super Talent gives the drives! Write performance overall is very good, Sequential Write numbers are particularly good at 27MB/s, Buffered Write at 8MB/s is a bit slow but Random Write at 18MB/s is very good as well. Anyway which way you put it, the Super Talent DH series of USB drives are fast!

Darn fast + inexpensive, a great combination!

If you need to transport a lot of data very quickly, your best bet is to use a USB drive. The devices available these days are heads and shoulders better than what was available even a year ago, it's just amazing how fast things have gotten.

Super Talent is better known for its high speed system memory but it also does high speed USB drives and I'm not kidding on the high speed part.

Its DH line of USB drives have an impressive 200x speed rating (30MB/s) and from the benchmark results, the USB drives that we tested surpassed that mark by an additional 10%! Write performance was not shabby either hitting 180x speed or 27MB/s!

The thing that makes the Super Talent DH USB drives so sweet though is the price. With the 1GB model retailing for $10US, the 2GB at $17US and the 4GB going for $32US, this high level of performance and storage space is available to everyone!

Physically the Super Talent DH USB drives are quite small and easy to transport. The aluminum construction give the drive a nice cool feel and the red LED does a good job at indicating when the drive is being accessed. You can tell that Super Talent believes in its drives by including a limited lifetime warranty on its devices.

The Super Talent DH USB drives kick a lot of butt and for the price you realistically can't get anything better. If you're in need of a highly mobile storage unit, make sure you try and track down some Super Talent DH USB drives, they're well worth the money and effort!
