Lexar JumpDrive Secure 64GB – Review

Speed Tests

But as with anything testing the drives speed will be one of the ultimate factors in a purchase so let’s get cracking.

Crystal Disk Mark is the normal piece of software I use to test these kinds of devices, with a 1GB payload and 5 runs on the drive to get an average of the performance.

I have to say, I was shocked at the read speed that appeared in these tests, it smashed the speed Lexar put on the box.

The write speeds were a similar experience with it being massively faster in the benchmark than the 55MB/s Lexmark say it should hit.

Performance does degrade on smaller file sizes as the drive has to work harder, a common problem with storage devices.

On a USB 2 Port the drive performs just as finely with a peak write speed of 35MB/s and read of 30MB/s means it is no slouch even when connected to the older port.
