For the others suggesting this is not USB 3.0 they are incorrect the port is USB 3.0 and the drive is recognized as a USB 3.0 device. However, even though a drive is USB 3.0 capable does not mean it will be fast enough to see USB 3.0 speeds. This device has miserably slow writes. Using Crystal disk mark sequential writes at 100MB are around 20 MB/s, many USB 2.0 drives are faster than this. I needed a device that can write at least 40MB/s consistently, and this does not perform well enough.The device is made entirely out of plastic, and does not have an indicator light.I would suggest getting ADATA UV128 which performs way better and at the same or lower price.

The claim of being 4x fast than usb 2.0 is somewhat true. What people didn't realize is that when you first get the drive, right out of the box the drive is formatted to FAT32. When I used the drive right out of the box when formatted to FAT32 the write speeds were really slow at 4mbps. I then tried to move a large video file that was 10gb large and found out that you can not move a file that is 10gb large into a FAT32 drive. I found out that I had to format the drive to NTFS to move files over that were 10GB large. When formatting to NTFS I found out that my write speeds jumped to 12mbps.Conclusion:Format the drive to NTFS right when you get the drive to get faster read and write speeds. You get what you pay for. Although you don't get that great of speed, it makes up for performance with the price. If you want a faster drive then you'll have to spend more money.Pros:It was on sale at 18 dollars which is pretty cheap for a 64GB thumb drive.Cons:Not as fast as other USB 3.0 drives out there rated at 40mbps write speeds.

After seeing sub-MB write speeds to this drive, I decided to benchmark it. Around 120MB/s read speed and 40MB/s write speed... with large files. With small files (usually what you are working with) it drops down to around 5MB/s read and 2MB/s write.So be warned, this drive is for transferring large files, like pictures or movies. Definitely skip if you want to use this for anything else.
