Faster than Patriot or Corsair's lower tier USB drive models.
The... externals of this drive, though, is somewhat flimsy and the 'slide' mechanism is not quite as comfortable feeling as the big-name makers'. It's somewhat stiff and a bit too tight to operate, and I hope actually sliding it frequently won't break it off.
Other than that, I don't see any fault with this wonderful drive.
Block size had no impact on performance with exFAT. NTFS was 77 MB/s at larger block sizes and 72 MB/s at smaller ones.
You'd think that sort of performance would make this drive suitable for general-purpose use. Not so much. Random-write performance is awful; par for the course for almost all USB flash drives, 3.0 or not. The controller hardware in these things is rudimentary. I briefly had this PNY configured as a download folder for a program that would automatically reconstruct downloaded files. It couldn't keep up with my 5.5 MB/s (megabytes/s) internet connection. The program interface was constantly unresponsive.
While it's terrific bargain for general use (you won't find 80 MB/s sustained writes from a reputable memory brand for $0.39/GB anywhere else), I returned it in favor of a SanDisk Extreme 64 GB. Half the space and 30% more expensive, but with a proper drive controller that makes it just as responsive (and nearly as fast, with legit 150 MB/s+ writes and excellent random write performance) as an SSD.
When my new flash drive arrived, I immediately loaded it up with files, many of which were highly sensitive, confidential work-related documents. The following day my PNY started "acting funny." First it began crashing in the middle of a file transfer. Then it started self-ejecting, and I'd get an on screen alert -- "You have not removed your flash drive properly." Who me? The thing bailed out on its own.
The following day I put it in my desktop computer, and it didn't mount. My laptop couldn't find it either. It died. I filled out the Amazon return form, and in an instant my money was refunded. All I had to do now was return the defective flash drive -- Amazon even pays the freight.
NOW HERE'S WHERE IT GETS UGLY -- since my computer couldn't find the flash drive, I couldn't delete my personal data. Not only did my brilliantly-reviewed PNY die, but it was taking all my secrets to the grave with it.
I called PNY who suggested I try to open it with Disk Utility. That didn't work, but that was all the tech help they could offer. They said they’d take it back and send me a new one, but I couldn’t. The flash drive had all my stuff inside of it.
So I called Amazon. They had already reimbursed me, so I had to explain why I couldn’t return the defective product. Customer-centric as they are, they gave me permission to keep the drive, which I have put out of its misery with a sledge hammer. (Very cathartic, I might add.)
MORAL OF THE STORY: If 7% of the reviews are just dissatisfied buyers, I take that with a grain of salt. But if 7% of the reviewers state the product died, that deserves more serious thought. Think of it this way -- if you interviewed a surgeon and he said "More than two-thirds of my patients find my services exceptional, and only 7% of them have died," what would you do?
