So elephant in the room... How much can this store?

And, is this cross platform.

For example, at work I use an iMac. Which has 16GB RAM.

My desktop system has 32GB RAM.

Does this impact the speed, or total storage available?

In reality, it's copying super fast to memory and is still going slow as a snail in the background. So people will copy files in "2 seconds" unplug the flash drive and wonder why their stuff isn't there because the device hadn't gotten around to copying everything over yet. Using system memory doesn't make the Flash or the bus any faster.

my thoughts exactly aquinus, the speed of the usb 3 bus is 5gb/s or about 500MB/s, its basically just caching everything to memory and writing it back later, this seems really dumb, for simple write and read, but lets say youre working on something on the flash drive using different pcs, if it caches the entire contents of the drive to ram once you plug in, and then you can work on it in ram, and then when you eject, it gives you a count down, then i can maybe understand, but just maybe

It's not only dumb, Windows already does this when you have write caching turned on. :confused:

Seems to me the marketing dept at Super Talent is trying to mislead the consumers. Bad move

I thought it had a write cache on the stick, then I saw it was 3.0 and not 3.1 ... and saw what they were doing.... what bollocks.
