19 Flash Drive Roundup

19 Flash Drive Roundup

Performance (Tough Drives)

Notes: Higher Avg transfer rates are better. Large differences between the Min and Max transfer rates indicate less stable drive performance.

HD Tune 2.53

As with the previous mini page testing, the ATP product leads the way with a very steady and stable transfer rate outsurpassing even the Corsair units.

Random Access Time (ms)
ATP ToughDrive mini 2GB
Corsair Survivor 4GB
Corsair Voyager 16GB

Notes: Random access time indicates the time the drive needs to arbitrary access the sequence of data stored inside it. Lower random access times are better.

Similar to the results above the ATP Toughdrive leads the way with random access times.


Sisoft Sandra 2008.1.12.34 Removable Storage test

Notes: More operations per minute indicate better performance. To ensure a wide variety of test results we tested with folders containing various sized files. For example if you worked often with small database files or word documents you would want a drive capable of transferring smaller files faster. If you work more with larger files, such as RAW files from a camera you would want more performance with 20+megabyte files.

ATP do it again ! We have never seen a drive surpass 10,000 files per minute in the 32kb test and not only that but the unit is capable of leading the way with 2mb files and 32mb files, making it the perfect drive for all uses. Not often we can say that.

Endurance Factor

Corsair Survivor 4GB
Corsair Voyager 16GB

Notes: Endurance factor indicates the wear and life expectancy of flash drives. This is done by dividing the average performance of the drive (sequential write) to the highest stress performance (same block re-write). Higher is theoretically better. In practice each flash device can do a set number of write and erase operations in its life cycle and so when comparing two drives which can do the same number of operations in their lifetime the faster drive will have a lower Endurance Factor because it would also die faster, despite that it is going to do the same number of operations as the slower drive. This test is somewhat subjective as obviously no two units of the same make will have the exact same lifespan.
