[QUOTE=mciahel;2556925]Hm. Have the flash storage companies learned from the blank media industry or the other way round? [/QUOTE] Maybe their bean-counters come from the same school?!

7dayshop own brand 32GB swivel pen drive:
Benchmark straight out of the packaging:
Anyone familiar with SSD reviews is well aware that a 4K aligned partition is essential. I noticed with diskpart that its partition was not 4K aligned, so I created a new partition and got a little extra boost in the write speed:
Definitely not a fast 32GB pen drive, but a cheap & cheerful one which cost Â£20 (~â‚¬23) when I bought it in March.
ATTO Benchmark outputs to .BMK file. How do I attach the .BMK file, or change it to a .PNG file as sugested above? I Have a Maxell Click 4GB which I don’t see on here, have it formatted for FAT32 (Using it at the moment for various firmware updates) which May make a difference in the scores as the write scores are averaging a tad over 5MB/Sec, but read scores are average 25-27 MB/Sec? Wondering if the Fat32 has anything to do with the write capabilities of the drive?
Screenshot is the much better option. Press Alt+ PrtSc and paste into a simple graphic tool like MS Paint, Irfan View or similar. PNG is the preferred format to save the image. Then upload. See also the (How to attach… ) link in my signature
Kingston DataTraveler Generation 3 4 GB:
I think I should benchmark my Transcend JetFlash 16GB, still the fastest I had so far.
^ Yikes! I sure wouldn’t want to be in a hurry.
This is a 7DayShop own-brand blue USB3 32GB I bought about a year ago:
I formatted the stick in exFAT prior to running the test.
