    SanDisk SDCZ880-256G-A46 reviews

    256GB Extreme Pro USB 3.1 Solid State Flash Drive is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but does not get close to claimed speeds. It works well but does not come close to claimed speeds. The claimed speeds is 420 reads with 385 writes. Now I know these are max figures but I can't even get close to them. Averages about 100 MB/s below claimed figures. I will attach a benchmark but really not happy with how far under it comes in. I do like that it is a nice clean look coming out of my Surface Studio. I also have my Adobe apps installed to it. Photoshop does load in about 9 seconds so not to bad. But in comparison to my Samsung T3 drive it really does get smoked on handling large files. So now I guess I have to decide if it is worth keeping or just getting a second T3 drive. They are both about the same price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fastest USB Flash drive (not considering USB SSDs) Not to much to say, construction is not my favorite, the same as past Extreme Pro flash drives, but where it impresses is on its numbers, above 300mb/s on CDM6 on both write and read, its not as fast as Sandisk advertises, but still the fastest i have ever owned, there are faster USB devices that use SSDs inside, but on pure flash drives, this is as good as it gets.� Only downsides imo is that it does get hot (not to the point its uncomfortable) and its price for the size, i feel 256gb is a little small for someone moving a lot of media, Sandisk should release a 512gb version.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 50% faster than the 3.0 version Yes this isn't as fast as advertised but still getting more than 50% faster speeds than the previous 128GB Extreme Pro USB 3.0 I also own. As well if you need 256GB then this is a good way to go. Tested using Blackmagic speed test I got 323MB/s writes and 370MB/s reads running off a 13 inch Macbook Pro Retina (2015). No complaints to be honest, keep up the good work Sandisk!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Slower than advertised This is a handy, well made flash drive. But its performance is about 25 percent of advertised. The advertised read/write speeds are either greatly exaggerated or perhaps they're just theoretical speeds. Although the Extreme Pro USB 3.1 is probably 10X faster than the Ultra USB 3.0 that sells for about half the price of the Extreme Pro. I'm certainly not the first to complain about the exaggerated of this flash drive.
    Date published: 2018-02-09
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sluggish write speeds, fast read speeds. I bought two of the 256GB versions of these SanDisk USB 3.1 flash drives and after using them for about a month as location backups for my photoshoots I'm disappointed in the performance, particularly the write speeds. I use them as location backups after a photo shoot. A folder of images will typically be about 30-50GB after a job. Writing those folders could take anywhere from a 3-4 minutes to 8-10 minutes, at least on my two Macs (a MacBook Pro Retina from 2015 and an iMac 5k from 2016), and the worst part is that it's sort of unpredictable. Some days the flash drive appears to be quite fast and other days...not. The one consistent is that read speeds are quite snappy. So if your needs are to keep a set of files on these drives that will copy or be accessed regularly, these will be great. But if you are wanting to use these to write to with lots of data, I suggest looking elsewhere.
