Super Talent RAIDDrive 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Review

The Super Talent SuperSpeed USB 3.0 RAIDDrive works in any USB port, but when used in conjunction with a USB 3.0 port it becomes a speed demon! Today we take a look at the Super Talent 64GB RAIDDrive and discover that it can reach speeds of 280MB/s read and nearly 130MB/s write on our test system! Read on to see how this drive performs as you won't want to miss this one!

The Super Talent RAIDDrive is one of the most interesting products that we have come across in some time. It's not every day you see a USB 3.0 Flash Drive, let alone a monster drive like this that is running a pair of SATA controllers in a RAID configuration. It's super fast and is ideal for those that want the ultimate USB Flash drive. When using the Super Talent 64GB RAIDDrive we found insane drive performance on the benchmarks, but our real world use showed that the drive improved file transfer speeds roughly 2.5X over USB 2.0 performance. There is nothing slow about this drive as we were hitting 280MB/s write and 128MB/s read, which is amazing for any portable USB device.

Wow, it seems that USB 3.0 IS leaps and bounds over 2.0 in terms of speed, Just have to get myself something with a USB 3.0 input.

You can get an add-in card for under $40 if you wanted to add it to your existing system - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6815158181

Or of you can find this one somewhere else:

Yeah the U3S6 is great as well, but it kinda disappeared... wonder if it's due to high demand or something.

I'd hope that's all it was, because it's the only reasonably priced card that supplies the full bandwidth of USB3, let alone include SATA 6Gbps on the same card. Even given that they're both on the same card, ASUS put the PCIe switch on the card for better throughput and better bandwidth sharing amongst the devices. :) Not to mention you're getting both features for the price of one.
