Review: Verbatim Store ‘n’ Go® 128GB USB 3.0 External SSD

Lists Reads speeds up to 190MB/sec, Write speeds up to 140MB/sec but I was seeing read and write speeds up to 201MB/sec.

I have a Mac Air that has a solid state internal drive so I wanted an external drive that was just as fast.

I copied a 15GB VMware disk image to the Verbatim Store ‘n’ Go disk.  My disk monitor was showing a constant 201mb disk writes.   If you don’t have a internal solid state drive your transfers may be slower since your internal drive may not be able to keep up.

This drive is just what I wanted.  Most other external USB 3 disks use a slow 5400 rpm disk.  What’s the point of having a fast usb 3 cable and a drive thats slow?
