    now i know this is very negative, but i can almost guarantee that the write performance will be plain sad (because it is not listed).

    After looking for decent performance flash drives, i gave up and i have 2 toshiba ssds hooked up in 2.5 inch enclosures and they perform way better.

    Good speed flash drives are a LOOOONG way off...if ever.

    It's a usb 2.0 flash drive. Both the read and write performances are thus supposed to be abysmal. On the other hand it ought to be really cheap. Not that I'd buy usb 2.0 drives anymore. I guess some people still do if new models are being released.

    A while ago I managed to get my hands on Sandisk Extreme 32GB flash drive. It's a fast little thing and wasn't expensive, but the stocks are running low as it's out of production. The newer model is Extreme Pro 128GB, which has still much faster speeds, but I don't use flash drives enough to justify the price. If I really needed more significant fast portable space, I'd go your route with an SSD and an enclosure.

    There are quite a few fast USB drives. I use a Kingston HyperX Savage (about 350MB/s) or there is the Sandisk Extream Pro 380MB/s

    If you don't mind more of an external HDD style there is the Samsung T5 series that's 540MB/s that's about the size of a PCMCIA card.

    i have a 32 gb thumb drive for em that i brought for 16 euros 2 years ago and does 30~40 write and about 80 read ((mb)) while it is far from good for 16 euros is quiet good to transfer files to friends ...on the other hand i have a 5 euro 16 gb emptec drive that does 3mb/s max write and about 10 read !!! Now that's Abysmal !

    There used to be fairly fast and cheap USB3.0 flash drives about, i bought a 128GB 69 / 206 MB/s Write / Read drive for £23 at it's standard price about 3 years back and there were several similar price performance options from other brands too.

    Such Cheap and Fast drives are no longer available and I have looked a Lot.

    I now use a 128GB mSATA SSD from when I upgraded the drives in my laptop in a small cheap enclosure's you can pick up for about $10. I get about 228 / 211 MB/s seq Write/Read speed out of it. Decent for what it is and cost I guess.

    Limitations of that cheap enclosure I guess as it got 301 / 441 MB/s seq Write/Read when it was installed in the laptop according to CDM.

    The old Extreme (that I've) was basically split into Extreme Go and Extreme Pro by Sandisk. Extreme Go is slower (and cheaper) than the old Extreme, while Extreme Pro is faster (and more expensive). Also, the Extreme Pro only starts from 128GB, which is probably one reason for the high speed. Extreme Go starts from 64GB, yet it's still slower than the old Extreme 32GB, which tells about the cheaper technology used.

    If I couldn't have got the old Extreme anymore, I might have gone for Extreme Go.

    So Adata has "unveiled" a USB 2 stick. Now, at last, we know what was behind the curtain. The wait was certainly worth it, though I still must hold off until all my USB 1 stuff wears out. Maybe by then they will "unleash" a USB 3 stick.

    Gotta love the copy.
