Final Thoughts

We are starting to see a lot of USB 3.0 products hit the market. With NEC's recent price drop, more products will be coming out even faster. The most common USB 3.0 product has been 2.5 and 3.5" drive enclosures. Super Talent is one of the few companies taking advantage of USB 3.0's speed increase and applying the technology to thumb drives. When it comes to the data transfer performance, the Super Talent SuperCrypt is very fast given its category and competition. Being able to read data back at nearly 200MB/s is a long way from anything we have seen out of USB 2.0. The write speeds are about half of what read speeds are, but they are still three times faster than USB 2.0.

Users looking for both speed and security will find both needs met with the SuperCrypt. With two models available, the first featuring 128bit encryption and the second offering 256bit encryption, you can even choose the level of security needed.

Of course, all of this technology comes at a high cost. The 32GB SuperCrypt that we reviewed here today is available now from Amazon for 170.24 USD. The drive is large enough to hold a lot of data and is capable of delivering that data at very fast speeds. Users looking for even more storage can choose to purchase the 64, 128 or even a massive 256GB model. If you just want the speed and the security and can live with less space, Super Talent also offers a 16GB model in the 128bit encryption category.

The only fault that we found with our sample was the plastic housing. At this price, we feel the drive should be a little more robust. I don't mean titanium or carbon fiber (although that would be really nice) but having a little bit of metal would help the drive survive being closed in a door or any number of accidents that I have actually had happen with a thumb drive before.
