    This thing is fast. Period. Click. Watch. Done. Not quite as fast as my SSD drive, but not far behind. I love that I can slap my Pro Tools files on it before I hit the road for work without having to wait a long time for the files to transfer. There's always last minute movies, songs, and work files you want to make sure you have with you. Plug it in, drag the files, and watch it work. Love it. The only thing I don't like is that it got kind of hot while in use. It wasn't too hot to pick up, just hot enough to warrant some concern for what's inside getting messed. I would still recommend it, and I plan on getting more of the 256GB to replace or duplicate my external hard drives.

    Not worth the money

    I primarily use this drive to back up MP3 songs, drivers, utilities and other back up data. This drive performed no faster in an USB 3.1 socket than my old 128 GB SanDisk Extreme Pro USB 3.0 did in a slower USB 3.0 socket or older still, my very small [physical size] SanDisk 64 GB Ultra Fit USB 3.0 drives. This is far too expensive for the performance, at least for the files I back up. I did not run a benchmark program on it, even though I have one. I do not back up synthetic numbers, only real data. It may move larger files faster, such as movies, I do not know.

    Outstanding! Fast, and handles large or small files as well as external hard drive do. SanDisk is the only flash drives that I have tried that don't trip on small files, like links, and file sizes that are under one megabyte. All the other brands I have tried are good on photos and music (5 to 10 meg), but cough up hairballs on the small files. SanDisk flash drives are not bothered by them a bit. And this new series of SanDisk flash drives are blazing fast!

    I bought this flash drive to clear space on my laptop hard drive. I checked reviews online and chose this one based on the transfer speeds and upgraded materials since this would serve as a file archive. So far I have been very pleased with its performance. File transfers are fast even with the back compatibility to USB 2.0 using a MacBook Air.

    I bought this faster flash drive because my old 128gb drive was almost full. I tried a regular 256gb and it was very slow. Sandisk replaced the drive and it also was slow. This one works just fine and is much faster when entering data. Make sure you get Best Buy to match the Amazon price online. Savings is considerable.

    SanDisk - Extreme Pro 256GB USB 3.1 Flash Drive has extremely fast read/write speeds. This was at least 10 times faster than my SanDisk 256GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive. Best Buy had the best price for this product and received it in 2-3 days. Highly recommend.

    This drive reads and writes at a great speed. I can now keep "sensitive" material on the drive, work on it when needed, and keep the material in my pocket. Older drives just didn't have the read/write speed. I LOVE THIS THING!

    It is fast and looks nice. It's double the price of other 256GB USB 3.0 drives. I haven't used it too much, but handy to have. It's not as fast as I imagined (no PC parts ever are). Nice specs, hopefully the sizes will increase and the prices & speed will decrease.
