- Retail package
SuperTalent provided us with the retail package of the SuperTalent DH 2GB USB stick. Its retail price is around ~$20.49. The retail kit is small and includes only the USB stick in a protective plastic shell.
Let's have a close look at the module.
Not much to discuss here, the device shows the capacity and the fact that it's USB 2.0 compatible. Removing the protective cap we can the USB connector.
There is a red LED at the top indicating read/write operations...
We fired up HD Tach v220.127.116.11 and prepared the full length tests, that will put the USB stick through its paces:
The full bench test scans the entire capacity of the module and graphs its average reading/writing performance:
The performance is very good. We had 25.0MB/sec average reading and 22.8MB/sec average writing performance.
There are so many USB sticks on the market right now that users can become very confused when it comes time to buy one. Our suggestion is simple, look for that is fastest and at the same time won't cost a fortune. SuperTalent covers that need with the DH series, which comes with an aluminum casing and very fast reading and writing speeds, at least according to the specs.
Our tests were very encouraging, since the device managed to reach 33MB/sec reading and 24MB/sec writing speeds. We would say without any doubt, that this USB stick is extra fast. It also comes with a lifetime warranty from SuperTalent, so there's no reason why this product shouldn't come highly suggested! The retail price is only US$20 and it is available in two colours, black or white, the choice is yours :-)
