The speed said on its datasheet.

  • Read 100M/sec
  • Write 10M/sec

Data Sheet – DT100G3_en

The average speed is about 10M/sec when I copy a file to the flash drive. The file size is 441MB. It took me 44 seconds to complete the copy.

So I believe the write speed match what is on the datasheet. When I copy the same file from the flash drive to the 1 TB hard drive, the speed is about 40MB/sec.
