The Samsung USB-C (2022) Flash Drive is tiny, but it can achieve sequential read/write speeds of over 400/100MB/s thanks to its USB-C 3.1 Gen 1 5Gbps (625MB) interface /s). It is backwards compatible with earlier USB standards.
It is tiny – 33.70 X 15.90 X 6.40mm x 3.4g. And tough – waterproof (1m for 72 hours in seawater), shockproof, magnet proof, temperature proof and X-ray proof, all backed by a 5 year warranty.
Tests: Samsung USB-C key (2022)
Our test device was a Microsoft Surface Laptop Studio 2022 (2022) – a thing of beauty and envy (critical) with a Thunderbolt 4 port.
Using Crystal Disk Mark Tests peak flow. Sequential read/write speeds were 416.45/116.17 MB/s, which is excellent for a USB drive.
CPDT testing sustained read/write. Sequential read/write speeds were 377.32/106.65 Mbps.
