|Express Drive Performance|
Super Talent originally caught our attention with the DDR2 products back in 2007 and since have branched out into a lot of other memory products including SSDs, USB Flash drives and of course DDR2 and DDR3 memory modules. Today we are looking at a very fast USB 3.0 Express Flash Drive that is merely their "mainstream" USB3.0 drive. The unit we're testing out today has a capacity of 32GB and although it is quite bulky, you'll find out if the size is worth the performance of this unit. Super Talent has a USB3.0 RAIDDrive that is faster than this drive, but there still isn't a USB2.0 drive that can compete as well see in a few minutes.
