"Very very SLOW"1.5 starson by GETZO
Pros: Nice design, high capacity
Cons: VERY SLOW write speed
Summary: The drive has a great design, it looks neat, the blue LED is really nice, but the write speed in very slow. I don´t have the specs of this thing, because they don´t exist.
Lexar support people said the problem was the MLC (Multi Layer Cell) technology used in these devices. Fast drives use SLC (Single Layer Cell). This is not specified anywhere in the package nor the drive.
Writing 350MB in the Firefly takes between 3 to 4min, writing the same file in my other USB drives takes less than a minute.
I wrote 3.15GB to the Firefly and took me about 30 minuts, that is about 100MB per minute. For me, that´s poor performance.
The device was not cheap, so the poor permance can´t be justified by the price. I will return to the store as soon as possible.
