very slow write speed, survivor 32gb!


Recommended Posts



I just used my new survivor 32gb and i am getting write speeds of 3-4 MB/s.

As i read numerous reviews before buying the drive, so i could be sure i wasnt buying a useless accessory, i know this is not the kind of speed to expect from this drive at all.


i ve already seen the other posts about the same issue. According to your instructions, i downloaded hdbench and i am already formatting my drive (which takes forever, first because its huge and probably because its slow as well).

When this is complete i will post back the results. Thanks! :D:

after formatting was done according to the other posts, i tested speeds with hdbench, 100mb size on the drive. readings are:


read: 25491, write: 5733, RandomRead: 25593, RandomWrite: 2609


is this normal?


Notice also that the speed of 3-4 MB/s i got was with a 1gig file and not loads of small files which i know slow down the process.

Please try and format the drive with the Format utility from the SD-CARD Organization. Then run the test again and see if that helps.


If you still have problems we can get it or them replaced, please use the RMA request found in TSXpress or follow the link in my signature “I think I have a bad part!” and we will be happy to replace them or it!
