Flash Drive Benchmarks

So what do I do when I’m bored? I benchmark my flash drives. And then share the results with the world.

Here are the conditions of the test:

  • Computer is a custom-built Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 desktop, 4GB DDR2-1066 RAM, USB 2.0
  • OS is Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
  • Benchmark program is DiskMark
  • All drives were inserted into the same USB port, front panel on the desktop
  • All drives are 4GB in size

Results (read/write average in MB/s)

  1. Lexar Firefly – 21.22/6.34
  2. Sandisk Cruzer – 22.62/10.29
  3. Transcend – 20.57/11.86
  4. Verbatim – 13.75/4.76
  5. Ativa (Office Depot) – 17.18/5.39

┬áResult: It doesn’t have to be an expensive flash drive to be fast. The Transcend was the fastest, and probably the cheapest overall.
