32GB jump drive speed?

  1. Hi,

    I've been looking into purchasing a new jump drive, and 32GB jump drives are coming down in price just in time for Black Friday sales. I was wondering if the speed takes a hit when you have a jump drive that large. I primarily want to use it to transport large video projects, and since i fill up my 8GB all too often, i felt 32GB would fit like a glove. Although speed concerns me, opinions anyone? Thanks.

    I've heard rumors and have even experienced this personally. I have 2x4 GB, 1x16 GB, and 1X32 GB thumb drives all of the same brand and all dual channel. My 4s and 16 are very fast - but my 32 is usually very slow compared to those. I'm not sure that this problem exists throughout all 32 GB - and I even doubt that's the case - just sharing my personal experience. I don't know technically why it would be slower either - just that it's very obvious on mine. Mine are OCZ Rally 2 drives.
