I bought a 16 gb cruzer switch yesterday, and a I find the write speed ridiculous (4MB/s).
Just for comparison: I have a 2gb kstone datatraveller and a 4gb maxell pendrive (also entry level, also cheap) and they just provide 7-8MB write speed. I thought that a big brand like sandisk is just gonna be up to the competition.
I was wrong, waaaay wrong.

Unfortunately, SanDisk USB Flash drives are not the same as they were before. I have a SanDisk Cruzer Micro U3 4GB writing at 10 MBytes/s and a SanDisk Cruzer Micro U3 8GB writing at 7 MBytes/s, with constant speed.
Recently, I've bought SanDisk Ultra 16GB (it was supposed to have high speed performance) and SanDisk Cruzer 64GB. The both flash drives have the same mediocre writing performance as icmike5 described. I am very disappointed with SanDisk flash drives I hope that at least the data storage remains reliable...

sorry but I have to say that is a sad and almost offensive reply... you seem to have left out a third and fourth option - 3) something between your answers and finally the option I am now going to use... another brand other than SanDisk... thanks for your help "SanDisk Guru"....
the above from a long time SanDisk now ex-user and a Macintosh consultant.

Hi, Recently I used Kingston DT50, which I found best until now.
Its write speed is documented and as per the specs.

An interesting posting Ghost. Of course it counterdicts what you wrote here: https://forums.sandisk.com/t5/All-SanDisk-USB-Flash-Drives/SanDisk-Ultra-USB-3-0-128GB-Speed-Down-To...
Kinda implies you are a SPAMmer posting dummy posts which you plan to edit next week.
