[Bestbuy618DIY Hardware Channel]As a type of portable flash drive, USB flash drives can be found in almost every aspect of our professional lives. In comparison to mobile hard drives, USB flash drives are known for their small and portable size, as well as their capacity and read/write speed. Various types of USB flash drives are very popular among consumers due to all of their benefits. Of course, the disadvantages of traditional USB flash drives are well known.
Although the size is small, the long shape makes it easy for the flash drive to break or bend, resulting in the loss of stored data. Manufacturers have also made numerous attempts to improve their products in order to reduce the likelihood of damage occurring.
Making the flash drive smaller, in addition to strengthening it, is a solution to the above problem. As we all know, Samsung is not only a giant enterprise in the field of cell phones and computers, but also the global leader in the field of electronic memory, and its products have been tested in the market and have a very good reputation, occupying a leading position in the market share of many competitors.
A USB drive of this type is Samsung’s FIT Upgrade series flash drive. Today, we’ll put it through its paces and see if the 64GB specification FIT Plus lives up to its name.
I was astounded the first time I saw the Samsung Flash Drive FIT Plus. The Samsung Flash Drive FIT Plus case is made of a synthetic material with a frosted finish that is textured, and even though it is just a flash drive, it still feels very beautiful and businesslike, taking into account the strength while ensuring lightness. The front and tail of the casing is printed with “SAMSUNG,” and the USB port has a large “64” showing the capacity of the USB flash drive is 64GB; “USB3.1” FIT Plus has a bending process at the interface, which can improve the stability of the internal structure of the interface and prevent the USB flash drive from being damaged when plugging and unplugging the tighter interface.
In terms of volume, the Samsung FIT Plus is much smaller than the traditional USB flash drive, with three circumferences of 23.6mm x 18.8mm x 7.3g, weighing only 3.1g, floating in the hand as if nothing, plugged into the computer looks small and compact, short and compact, and all kinds of thin and light book, business book is very compatible. Don’t “underestimate” it in terms of speed The 64GB FIT Plus can read up to 200MB/s as a USB 3.1 standard USB flash drive, according to Samsung. Let’s put it through its paces with CrystalDiskMark, AS SSD Benchmark, and FastCopy to see how it holds up. We chose a high-performance laptop with an i7-10510U processor, 16GB of RAM, a 1TB SSD that supports the NVMe 1.3 protocol, and Windows 10 64-bit Home Edition as the test platform.
CrystalDiskMark is a piece of software that many people use to test the read and write speeds of their computer hard disk storage devices. It has a simple and easy-to-use interface. Users can test at any time, which is very convenient and quick, and the test results show that the official is indeed true to me. The performance of the Samsung FIT Plus is excellent; its read speed can reach 224.4MB/s, exceeding the 200MB/s threshold.
In addition to the CrystalDiskMark test, we also used AS SSD Benchmark software for read and write speed testing. 4K random read and write speed can reach 13.31MB / s and 11.8MB / s, respectively, in a comprehensive view, 64GB specifications FIT Plus read and write performance is good, in the same level of USB flash drive belongs to the excellent level.
It is a standard storage device testing program that covers key data testing items such as sustained read/write, single-threaded 4KB random read/write and 64-threaded 4KB random read/write, and disk seek time. Furthermore, the software can standardize the results based on the formula, allowing the real performance of storage devices to be reflected in a more objective and scientific manner.
According to the test results, the Samsung FIT Plus read speed is 195.03MB/s, while the 4K-64Thrd random read and write speeds are 12.46MB/s and 30.22MB/s, respectively. Although slightly inferior to the CDMark software test data, it is still very close. Both read and write speeds are excellent, and we used FastCopy to test the file transfer speed of the Samsung FIT Plus to better understand its performance.
FastCopy, as a very fast file copy software, not only fully exploits the file system and hard drive’s capabilities, but also counts and times them. This time, we chose a 10.7GB folder containing three video files to test the transfer speed of the Samsung FIT Plus to the laptop’s C drive.
According to the test results, the time taken by the Samsung FIT Plus to write to the notebook C drive was only about 55.8 seconds, and the rate was also maintained at the average level of the software test, as high as 196.9MiB/s, which translates to about 201.6MB/s in MB/s, so This rate is also reflected in the system transmission data, which is essentially maintained at a level close to 200MB/s. And, when transferring a single 3.75GB video file, Samsung FIT Plus only used 2′′1, 2′′6, and 3′′38, which is an astounding speed.
We also used ATTO Disk Benchmark software to test the read/write performance and stability of the Samsung FIT Plus. The histogram reflects the flash drive’s stability. When the test file size was 64KB, the FIT Plus could reach around 210MB/s and then maintain around 200MB/s, which is quite stable. With its short and compact size and perfectly adequate capacity, the Samsung FIT Plus can be used in a variety of scenarios.
The write speed is maintained at around 24MB/s, which is also a normal level of flash drive write speed. Teachers can use it in schools to load thousands of pages of PPT files and various teaching videos; in company-wide business scenarios, its speed can completely outperform the network, and it is far more efficient to copy and deliver than to wait for the network to send.
Another critical application scenario is in the automobile. Many cars now come standard with USB ports, and using USB flash drives as a car music library has become a common practice for many car owners. It’s worth noting that many cars have a shockproof cover for the USB port, making it impossible to fully close the dust cover after inserting a portion of the long USB flash drive strip. If it is, Samsung FIT Plus will relieve you of this concern.
The 64GB FIT Plus can also store up to 177 minutes of 4K UHD video at 38402160 30fps, 15934 12-megapixel photos, or 5718 high-quality songs. It’s enough to keep all of your favorite music in one place. Another important point is data security; Samsung FIT Plus has a waterproof, shockproof, high and low temperature resistance, anti-magnetic, and anti-x-ray “five-proof” structure design, ensuring that users are protected in an unconventional environment of data security; a 5-year limited warranty also provides users with double protection.
Following a series of tests and actual use, we can classify the Samsung FIT Plus as a simple but not so simple flash drive. The Samsung FIT Plus flash drive is compact and easy to carry, making it easy to connect to your PC or car without taking up too much space and interfering with normal device use. Its read speed of more than 200MB/s, as well as the stability of the reading and writing processes, are also very satisfactory, and the “five-proof” and 5-year limited warranty support, protects the user’s data. If the user has a large capacity space need, you can also buy the 128GB or 256GB version; it is worth noting that the read and write speed of both versions have been upgraded, but the 64GB version is unquestionably the most cost-effective choice of this USB flash drive.
