Introduction

Fast and small is good, right? At least that’s how it works in the computer world. And USB flash drives are no different; we like them fast for data transfer, but also come in a small package. Indeed, the best of both worlds. But the typical USB 2.0 speeds have proven woefully inadequate to address increasingly large files and storage capacities, as we seem to have less and less time to wait for something as simple as a file transfer.

This is where USB 3.0 comes into play. Becoming nearly commonplace of late, USB 3.0 boasts huge speed increases that can allow us those faster transfer speeds we want, while still maintaining large capacity and highly portable nature of those ubiquitous flash drives.

And this brings us to today’s topic of discussion: the Mach Xtreme Technology FX 16GB USB 3.0 flash drive. Sporting a USB 3.0 interface to vastly improve performance over the aging USB 2.0, this little drive packs 16GB of capacity onto a form factor that can fit onto your key ring.

But what about performance? Around here, we think Performance is King, so just how fast is this flash drive? Well, we put the MX-ES USB 3.0 to the test to find out.
