Being a more affordable product from Lexar, we do not expect the JumpDrive S73 to break any records, but it should still deliver the benefits of USB 3.0 connectivity. While it does lack write speed, it makes up some ground in read performance.

The MX-ES can be mistaken for a cheap run-of-the-mill USB 2.0 drive, but its generic housing holds an SLC-flash-based heart. Mach Xtreme got us drooling with advertised speeds of 170/185 MB/s read/write. The drive did not quite hit those numbers, but managed to get our nod of approval.

With USB drives a dime a dozen nowadays, Kingston is trying to combine affordable flash storage with a certain degree of connectivity in the Wi-Drive. Employing a wireless hotspot, the Wi-Drive allows up to three connected devices to stream files to their display - be it notebooks, iOS or Android units. We take the 16 GB Wi-Drive for a spin to see if it packs enough power and flexibility to shine.

Patriot has also jumped on the USB 3.0 bandwagon with their Supersonic series of drives. While the Supersonic Magnum is the flagship drive, the normal Supersonic packs quite the punch and breaks the advertised performance barrier - giving you more than you bargained for.

After the FX high-speed USB 3.0 flash drive, Mach Xtreme aims to take the mainstream crowd with the GX USB 3.0 unit. The drive is slimmer, not quite as fast, but brings the price down to the competitive market segment. We take the Mach Xtreme GX 16 GB flash drive for a spin to see if it can hold its own against the established brands in the market.

The Verbatim Store'n'Go Netbook USB drive is so small that you can plug it into your netbook and just leave it in there. So this is a dead easy way to expand the onboard storage - especially for those first or second generation netbooks with very limited and usually very slow internal flash/SSD storage.

The Team Group Diamond is compact, available in multiple colors, packs up to 16 GB and comes with a very affordable price tag - even though the name may suggest otherwise. We take a look to see if the tiny flash drive shines and sparkles or if any imperfections overshadow the joy of using the drive.

Corsair's latest Padlock revision brings about more changes than just a new look. Data is now secured with a 256-bit AES encryption, unlike the original Padlock 1, which just cut off power to the flash drive unless the correct PIN was entered. We drill the Padlock 2 to see if it holds up or snitches under pressure.
