We’ll be using ATTO and Crystal Disk Mark for testing today, to showcase the typical performance of each Samsung USB 3.0 drive.
First up, let’s start with the 16GB model:
Here we see that the Read results top out around 154MB/s, which is considerably faster than Samsung’s claimed speeds, while the Write speeds reach just above 68MB/s. That’s very speedy, and certainly good enough for photo storage, movie playback, and data transfer.
Next up, the 32GB model:
More of the same with the Write speeds, hovering around 150MB/s. But look at those Write speeds, topping out at just over 100MB/s. Impressive.That’s significantly faster than Samsung’s claims, and suffice it say this will provide more than enough speed for any demanding user or professional.
Crystal Disk Mark
Next, let’s look at the Crystal Disk Mark results.
First the 16GB:
Much of the same here. Excellent Read speeds, above Samsung’s specs, and adequate Write speeds.
Moving onto the FIT 32GB:
Again we see very impressive results here, with an improvement of almost 75% on the Write results. Clearly, this tiny flash drive is a speedy beast in disguise.
