Mine has arrived, and didn't come with the lanyard even though advertised. No biggy.
The drive shows as having 14.8GB free space.
I've just finished testing mine using USBDeview for the synthetic read/write test, and DiskBench for the real life speeds. I've tested both using FAT32 and NTFS, performing each test 3 times for each format. The file for the DiskBench tests was 1.4GB in size.
Average Write Speed: 9.19 MB/s
Average Read Speed: 17.33 MB/s
Average Write Speed: 7.34 MB/s
Average Read Speed: 15.22 MB/s
Average Write Speed: 6.64 MB/s
Average Read Speed: 16.92 MB/s
Average Write Speed: 10.97 MB/s
Average Read Speed: 14.90 MB/s
Considering the manufacturer claims write speeds upto 9 MB/s and read speeds upto 30 MB/s, I don't think the write speeds are too bad! But the read speeds could be better :( Perhaps they will be for smaller files, I'll have to test further.
