With prices of SSD drives taking a serious dive in the past 6 months (so did the quality of some) USB flash drives are not doing much better and so pretty much everyone can now carry at least 32GB of data without worrying about the cost. However capacity is not the only single thing that defines a USB Flash Drive and so leaving out consumers who care more about the design and size of one such device there are also those who care mostly about performance. Now performance (or speed) is perhaps the hardest thing to come by since most manufacturers nowadays pay more attention to size and design in an effort to keep cost to a minimum. So today our main goal is to find out whether or not the latest Marvel M60 USB 3.0 Flash Drive by Silicon Power is just all about looks like most similar devices in the market.

Silicon Power is not amongst the top names in the field but so far both consumers and reviewers only have the best to say about their products and that's always a good thing. Personally i have only used one more device by Silicon Power prior to this review and it's still alive and kicking' so unless something goes terribly wrong with any of my tests surrounding one or more of their products (as in one of them not working as advertised) i have no reason not to say the best about them as well. For now however our job is to test and see just how good the latest Marvel M60 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive really is and how it does against other USB 3.0 Flash Drives in terms of read/write performance.
