Pros: Build quality, transfer speed, lock system, SanDisk SecureAccess software

Cons: Expensive

Bottomline: SanDisk Extreme Go USB 3.1 flash drive delivers what it promises in the real world. Though the price of the drive is almost double than traditional 64 GB drives available in the market, even from SanDisk, but the transfer speed is unmatchable. This is the right choice for people who are willing to pay higher amount but not willing to wait for a couple of minutes to transfer data.

Who wants to wait for even 5 minutes to transfer any data or content such as movies or software, etc. No one has time, and looking at the current demands, Western Digital Corporation brings SanDisk Extreme Go USB 3.1 flash drive.

The flash drive allows consumers to quickly copy data on the go. As the company claims to have read and write speeds of up to 200MB/s and 150MB/s respectively, the SanDisk Extreme Go allows to transfer a full-length 4K movie in less than 40 seconds 2 and 1000 photos in less than 60 seconds.

The drive is available in 64 GB and 128 GB, gives consumers plenty of room to manage and store large files. For added file protection, these drives include the SanDisk SecureAccess software, which offers 128-bit file encryption and password protection.

The real life performance

I have reviewed several devices from Sandisk including iXpand, Connect Wireless, etc. but this seems really promising in terms of higher transfer speed. I tested its performance in the real life and it’s really impressive. Transferring files such as photos and files were real quick.

While running benchmarks including HD Tune Pro 5.60, the Read Transfer rate was 102.4 MB/sec with 1.64 ms Access time. In CrystalDisk Mark, it gave read speed (seq) of 124.8 MB/sec and Write (seq) of 63.67 MB/sec. When we copied an assortment of 4 GB files to flash drive it took only 48 sec with speed of up to 107 MB/sec. While transferring data from drive to PC, it took only 32 sec with speed of up to 175 MB/sec.

    I was using Sandisk Extreme 16GB pendrive before. I recently bought the 3.1 16GB version. The reading and writing speed is really amazing. I have never get the speed before in any pendrive.
