    i'm guessing it is really slow …

      Not unless they're a faulty batch. Kingston are the top tier of flash memory. I have their 128GB version and it flies.

    Speeds seem quite slow from the reviews

    https://www.amazon.com/Kingston-Digital-64GB-Traveler-Flash/...

    "By RO on Jul 11, 2019
    I ordered 10 of these to use for work and I regret it. The write speed is barely faster than the cheap 2.0 drives I replaced with these. Don't buy if you're looking for true usb 3.0 speed.

    UPDATE: after struggling to write files to these drives, I mailed out a few to some clients. Big mistake. I’m hearing the drives aren’t working and the files aren’t accessible. This has been such a nightmare. I’d ask for a refund but all these drives are where they belong now. In the trash. Unbelievable."

      After checking some of the reviews, there appears to be 2 batches. One batch made in Taiwan, another one made in China.
      The ones from Centrecom I received appears is the batch made in Taiwan (which appears to be faster than the batch from China). My quick test result on an AMD based system:

      Sequential Read: 124.25 MB/s
      Sequential Write: 29.98 MB/s
      Random Read: 11.44 MB/s
      Random Write 0.22 MB/s

      While the writes are disappointing, especially for random write, at this price point, it is good enough. If you don't write to it often and uses read most of the time, it is fine. If you want fast random writes, look elsewhere. Reliability, obviously, too early to tell.

      $5 - good enough for me.

        Part of their appeal is their binning process also.

        Kingston allows zero sectors to be faulty; unlike the rest of the industry who allows up to 10.

        Not that they spread like on magnetic media; but it still shows a more accurately manufactured IC is chosen.

        random read 11.4 MB/s is shocking, as is the random write

          Just as a comparison: El cheapo Verbatim USB 3 stick, Random Read: 9.66, Random Write 0.01.
          7200 rpm HDD: Random Read: 0.35, Random Write: 0.94.

          In the cheapo class of USB sticks, this is expected. Honestly, $5, it is already above average. You generally use these for reads.

            @netsurfer: Agreed, these are good for bulky media files that are sequentially read. For me it's to pass from one device to another. Wouldn't trust for backups or anything RW intensive.
