Verbatim Store 'n' Go 4GB U3 Smart Drive Review

Value & Conclusion »


We used the following devices for our comparison:
  • Verbatim Store 'n' Go PRO 2GB
  • Verbatim Store 'n' Go 4GB
  • OCZ Rally 1GB
  • OCZ Mini Kart 1GB
  • Super Talent RBST 1GB
  • Corsair Flash Voyager 1GB
  • Sandisk Cruzer Titanium 512MB
  • Sandisk Cruzer Micro 2GB
  • A-Data Football Disk 512 MB
  • A-Data My Flash PD7 1GB
  • Generic Stick USB 1.1 256MB
  • Verbatim Store 'n' Go PRO 2GB
We used HDTach in the following two benchmarks.

HDTach results are not the fastest, but the most important feature of this drive is the U3 functionality not its speed.

Many high-speed USB drives offer nice transfer rates, yet have slow access times. Access time is quite the important feature. The Verbatim Store 'n' Go scores 0.5ms, making it the best memory stick we have tested so far, beating the Store 'n' Go PRO and A-DATA parts, which scored 0.6ms.

To get a feeling how the speed with different sized files is, we used the ATTO disk benchmark.

The benchmark reflects the HDTach scores with a read bandwidth of just over 12.5MB/s. The write speed is always slower on most USB memory devices. The 3.6MB/s of the Verbatim Store 'n' Go is fairly low, but acceptable for a value memory device.
