Great drive. I have a USB 3.0 port on my HP Envy 17 and ran Crystal Disk Mark on the drive 70mb/s read and 40 mb/s write. Very fast drive in USB 3.0. In USB 2.0, the drive does a straight 37mb/s read and write. I have owned A-Data before and the quality put into this drive is certainly evident.
The only caviat with this drive...no activity light. But in Windows 7, I just bring up the dialog box during activity and I can monitor speeds as I write to the drive.
A-Data...great job on a great product!
Pros: 54.1MB/s read, 0.42ms access time, 3.8% CPU usage. Cons: A little slow for USB 3.0, but faster drives are basically SSDs. I brought the 8GB drive for Windows 7 custom installations.
