Which USB stick to choose when it comes to quality and some USB questions?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello,

In a PC store where I want to buy a USB, there are 4 USB manufacturers:

  1. ADATA Technology
  2. Apacer
  3. Kingston
  4. SanDisk

Which 1 of these 4 USB to buy when it comes to quality. I'm planning to buy a 64GB and USB 3.0?

And which speed of writing and reading to look for?

 

Is USB 3.0 and 3.1 the same or not?

Will USB 3.0 achieve the speed that has in itself if I put it in USB 2.0 port or not?

Thanks.

I know of Adata, Kingston and Sandiks. I never heard of "Apacer" also when it comes to USB drives, most of them have same read and writes speeds. USB3 drive plugged into USB2 will work at USB2 speeds. Quality is almost equal between them, pick whatever looks better to you.

USB 3.2 Gen1, USB 3.1 Gen1 and USB 3.0 refer to the same standard (5 Gbps)

USB 3.2 Gen2 and USB 3.1 Gen2 are also the same (10 Gbps)

USB 3.2 Gen2x2 is 20 Gbps

 

As @Levent said, a USB 3.0 device one a 2.0 port will run at 2.0 speeds.

I've seen an ad in several of the LTT videos of a dual interface SSD from these guys. Never used an Apacer item though.

Hi,

 

I personally have a bunch of Kingstons and some Adatas. Why do you need a USB stick?

Hello,

Mostly to transfer personal pictures,videos, and documents from PC to USB. I keep my personal stuff there.
 

Is Kingstons USB good? What is your comment on them?

Which one of these USB sticks would You recommend to buy, which is better or the best? I'm asking this just to be sure which one to buy?

 

And will USB 3.1 Gen 1 have the same speed on USB 3.0 port?
