SAMSUNG USB 3.0 32GB FLASH DRIVE
Samsung made a special point of ensuring product durability when they created this flash drive and its hard metal exterior, accompanied by its thick metal loop, make it ideal to throw on a key chain.
A quick look at the back further displays the quality of construction, along with the capacity of 32GB.
Listed transfer speed specs for this drive is 130MB/s and we are aware that this pertains to the drives read performance. Crystal DiskMark definitely surprised us…
Not only did the read speed exceed listed specs, but also, write transfer speeds of 91MB/s with 100% compressable data samples is excellent. Let’s see how this appears testing with Samsung Magician software:
Sequential read speeds appear a bit lower, alothouigh still above listed specs, and sequential writes are higher yet.
SAMSUNG USB 3.0 32GB FIT FLASH DRIVE
As much as Samsung might not like us mentioning this, their FIT is very similar to the SanDisk version we have been using for a few years now. Its small size and decent capacity is great to store in camera bags. SanDisk’s version doesn’t compare to the Samsung FIT’s 130MB/s transfer speeds however.
Although the Fit’s read performance remains strong, we can see that write transfer speeds drop significantly with this version when testing with incompressible media:
Taking a look at the Samsung Magician results though, we see similar string performance when testing in sequential data samples:
All in all, we feel that Samsung has made some wise decisions in these flash drive introductions. As much as we can say of their performance and value, Samsung has added to that with their 5-Proof technology and 5 year warranty.
