Drives today have 3 - 4 MB/s Read/Write speeds..


I recently got an 8GB Transcend for 0.4 k.

So, please specify your budget. :)

I want that pen drive should have good writing speed when writing random 4KB files.

I want good write speed at lower file sizes because I'm going to install linux in it... but USb 3.0 pen drives have compatibility problems when booting from USB 2.0 ports.
Then fastest would be corsair flash voyager GT, you can get one from here: http://www.thinkdigit.com/forum/baz...-s-read-16mb-s-write-fastest-flash-drive.html - 16GB

Also you could get one from here for cheaper rate: http://www.ebay.in/itm/Corsair-8GB-...3?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_203&hash=item2a20cc89df - 8GB

guys i couldn't understood plz explain it..
Pen drives, or any memory devices show different speeds while writing files of different sizes, a pendrive could give 10MBps on large files but may not give even 1MBPs on small files.

why not??
Its a technological limit, you wouldn't understand unless you have read about memory architecture, specially access mechanisms, if you're a CSE/IT student then read up computer architecture, memory part.

That's expensive... I don't want good sequential writes, I already have adata pen drive for that. I'm thinking of sandisk cruzer, it is better in writing small files but gives only 3MBps in sequential writes.

Any one owning sandisk cruzer here is willing to perform a simple test...

Adata makes the fastest USB2 pendrives. My friend has got a 16GB some model, it gives 18-25MB/s write and 30-40MB/s read and it is a USB2 pendrive.


Edit:- I will post my pendrive benchmarks, it is a 16GB Kingston pendrive designed for Dell. Looks something like this-
