mtahearn Posted November 18, 2010 Share Posted November 18, 2010 I have 3 Survivor 32gb GTR units, all with the same issue. Incredibly slow write speeds. Plus the fact the LED activity light flases a lot, more then what I think is normal. One of the units failed to access any stored data and has since been replaced. My Survivor 8gb GT is still going strong and has no problems. The sticks go in many PC's, about 6 different units every day on average, all with similar effects. It's as if the drive has inbuilt 'leveling' software trying to average out the writes across all the memory or something. Even after 'safely removing hardware' says the unit can be safely ejected, the LED still flashes for a good 15 seconds. In comparison tests when backing up to my Corsairs, NAS, external HD and other USB sticks, the GTR's lag behind noticeably. I've done some web searching and also through these forums and have tried everything I have come across to fix it, without luck so far. So what I am actually chasing up, having resigned myself that these will never be fast, is there something like a firmware upgrade or similar that may address the issue. Thank You.
