Review say: Because of the price and performance of the Maxell Maxstix 1GB flash drive, we decided to award the drive our CD Freaks â€œSafe Buyâ€ award. price is cheap, but performance?? Read speed is low 15mb/s and write speed less than 10mb/s. Not a top notch performance. Other USB drives can do lot faster. And who use 1GB these days?
