Default Kingston HyperX Savage USB 3.1 Flash Drive Review Comment Thread

While most flash drives won't show up on many people's radar, Kingston's HyperX Savage has an ultra fast USB 3.1 interface, is highly durable and it demands your attention.

So this is the top USB currently? The Asus one is an internal version?

Man it's been a long time since I remember seeing a USB drive review here. The last one I can remember was the Corsair Voyageur torpedo looking sticks. There was probably some since then, but I can't remember them off hand.

The table on page 1 is deceptive and arguably incorrect. This is probably inevitable given that it lists specifications for a wide range of drive capacities. Specifically, the Write Speed for the Kingston HyperX Savage is listed as 250 MB/s and for the Lexar Jumpdrive P20 as 150 MB/s. The problem is that Write Speed for both drives varies with the capacity model. At the tested capacity of 128 GB, the Kingston value is correct, but the Lexar should be 270 MB/s.

Further Details:
  • The Kingston HyperX Savage is available in capacities ranging from 64 GB to 512 GB. The Write Speed for each model: 64 GB: 180 MB/s, 128 GB to 512 GB: 250 MB/s.
  • The Lexar Jumpdrive P20 is available in capacities ranging from 32 GB to 128 GB. The Write Speed for each model: 32 GB: 150 MB/s, 64 GB and 128 GB: 270 MB/s.

Out of curiosity...would we be able to get more USB drive reviews? And if so, could we test SCCM compatibility?

That's my latest annoyance at work - we're having a hard time finding USB 3.0 drives with decent speed that are capable of being booted from for SCCM (WinPE) image deployment. I don't understand why though. Our last successful model was the Kingston Ultimate G3 32GB (silver blocky metal design), but they're EOL and no longer available. USB 2.0 drives generally work, but those are usually the cheapest slowest ones.
