When a friend asked me a couple of days ago about what review i was working on and i told him that we had 6 of the latest USB 3.0 flash drives to hit the market plugged into our primary test rig he pointed out to me that testing such drives is not the most exciting thing but at least it's quite easy to do. For good or bad he's right since it's indeed not very exciting to test storage devices in general and yes it's also easy since such tests take less time to finish compared to the vast majority of PC hardware and electronics. Judging however by how everyone here used to research each and every single USB flash drive in the market prior to purchasing one (when we were teenagers) and also by the amount of Facebook messages we've received by many of you asking for such reviews i think that in the end it's very important for us to check and find out what's the best drive you can buy with your hard earned money. Today we'll be taking a look at one of the latest USB 3.0 Flash Drives by Silicon Power called the Blaze B06.

The Blaze B06 USB 3.0 flash drive is available in 8,16,32,64 and 128GB capacities so Silicon Power has made certain that you won't have to worry about running out of space anytime soon. Unfortunately the regular-sized (if there's such a thing as a regular size for flash drives) enclosure is made out of plastic so if you happen to like rugged ones or ones made out of zinc alloy (i happen to like both for example) the Blaze B06 is obviously not the one for you. The good news is that the drive is very light for its size and that Silicon Power has it available in three different colors currently (white, light green and pink) and although black is not one of them still most consumers should find one that suits them. So although at first glance i can't say i feel impressed by the enclosure i do think that performance plays an even bigger role than appearance so let's see what the latest Blaze B06 USB 3.0 flash drive by Silicon Power can do.
