I have been a fanatic for flagship goods especially when it comes to electronic gadgets but sadly enough when it comes to a pen drive, the choice becomes tough between speed vs storage vs cost vs looks vs portability vs availability.
So, after trying out a number of USB drives I arrived to the conclusion that if you want speed- better go for storage capacities of 128 GB or more as they aren’t flash drives but are miniature SSDs which offer the greatest speeds of all USBs OR OTHERWISE just choose a USB based upon your storage & portability needs.
I needed one for simple storage to accumulate a lot of movies & plug it next, in my 55” inch plasma for a comfortable entertainment. Simple.
I did not want it to be ultra-fast or ultra-costly or ultra-bulky or ultra-compact. A simple storage device that looked good with a decent size.
Thought to try out something off-beat & chose a sony pen drive 32 Gb to bet upon.
USB 3.0 vs USB 3.1 Gen1 vs USB 3.1 Gen2 :
These are some of the technical jargons where the manufactures take advantage of the users general ignorance.
So let me clear the fact that USB 3.0 & USB 3.1 Gen1 are the same thing with same 5 Gbps speeds.
USB 3.1 Gen2 is the newer protocol with double the rate at 10 Gbps.
Our product is just USB 3.1 gen1 so technically the same as USB 3.0, so nothing to feel really priviliged about unless its gen2.
ABOUT OUR PRODUCT:
Some of the key points about this pen drive are:
1.) The pen drive is a USB 3.1 gen1 so is technically a USB 3.0 only with backward compatibility to USB 2.0.
2.) It is 4.5 cms long & 1.5 cms wide so is quite compact yet traceable when misplaced due to its bright color & a decent yet minimal frame size.
3.) It comes with a rigid metal casing of bright golden color & a black plastic end cover with strap hole.
Metal provides an extra rigidity, durability & by some measures an extra heat dissipation for the drive.
4.) The drive, I received was manufactured in Delhi in August 2018,so was pretty recently manufactured.
5.) Actual space available for storage was 28.8 GB out of the name plate rating of 32 GB, rest is used for intrinsic file systems.
6.) It came formatted in FAT32 file system with 16 KB of allocation unit size. You can re-format it in NTFS or exFAT as per your wish for transfer of larger file systems than 2 GB .
7.) It mentions an operating temperature range of 0 to 35 degrees C & storage range being -20 to 60 degrees C, which to me seems to be the opposite case, anyways looks inadequate though from any point.
8.) The data R/W speeds are nothing great but yet I managed to get around 112 MBps read & average 20 to 24 MBps write which is just ok.
Sandisk ultra-fit delivered marginally better write rates at 24 MBps but lower read rates at 105 MBps.
9.) The MRP over the pack is printed at 1800 bucks but I got it on amazon for 599 bucks only. Maybe Sony overestimated its brand value in this segment-no way one is going to buy it for 1800 bucks.
10.) It has a warranty of mere 2 years which I suppose is below category average in this segment.
Sandisk on the contrary offers a 5 years warranty.Anyways performance to me is more important than chasing up for warranty claims.
11.) Haven’t observed any heating till now.
All in all, I would just say that at a price of 599 bucks with a durable metal body & compact size, It’s a great value for money with a reputed brand value.
However, if you are a speed enthusiast, this might just disappoint you. Yet it is not the slowest of all , if that is any consolation for a normal user.
Disappointed with speed of this. just nearly 40-50 MBps write and read is near100 MBps .
No where near to expectation.
One more thing I have noticed is that 10 mins of use it heats up but it is made of metal so it is obvious to heat up on surface. I don't think it is big issue because it works just fine.
I didn't replace or returned it because I wanted 32 gb pen drive and speed is not primary concern for me with this pen drive.
if speed is something you want then go for some other brand.
I got speeds ranging between 10MBPS to 70MBPS which is great for a pendrive costing as low as ₹599 for the 32gb varient.
The HP ones gives speeds around 30-150MBPS but they are well much more expensive that this (i bought HP for ₹830). Very satisfied.
Speeds are a little slow compared to the competition.
Pendrive heats up a little (negligible) if you transfer loads of data (in GBs)
Available space is just 28.8 GB but thats common for all 32gb pendrives.
1.Sandisk ultra , 2. HP x740w ,3. Sony MX3
The Sony unit is a 3.1 Gen 1 drive and outrages the others, all the three provide constant 30-32MB/s data transfer speed but the Sony Unit sometimes boosts to 85-90 MB/s ……
HP x740W & Sandisk ultra are decent sticks with good read write experience…although the Sandisk has some heating issue but among the three this one provides a micro USB OTG connector built in
Also to me , I purchased the Sony unit @496/- cheapest among all & its been a #badass choice over others …………..trust me
