With USB 3.0 super speed interface, Blaze B10 boasts a remarkable read speed up to 70 MB/s. Compared to conventional USB 2.0 with 480MBps, USB 3.0 carries the bandwidth of up to 5Gbps. Based on real-world test results, transfer time of high definition data files such as videos, photos, music, etc is significantly reduced, making instant carrying and sharing rich digital contents quicker and easier. In addition to the USB 3.0 features, Blaze B10 is especially designed for expressive individuals who are playful and bold with their portable storage devices. Smooth curves at two ends of its body get B10 a chic look while its surface is given a special finish for scratchproof and fingerprint-free purpose. Its front is designed with futuristic geometric pattern using heat-sensitive ink; color of the pattern will gradually change from Turkish blue to blazing red according to operating temperature of the drive, adding personality, style and fun to data transferring. Furthermore, Silicon Power includes a heat-sensitive sticker on B10 retail packaging for users to test out the cool color-changing effect of Blaze B10.

The jury will be out for a long time as to how long this will operate - some thumb drives die rather young. However, if you want your work written in a flash (pun intended) then this is your ticket. Not only is it quick to finish even huge files but even the first use was fast because the driver req'd installed on its own in seconds and I was off to the races.
This mfr has slower thumb drives and glitzier models, too. But this one is the lowest price and is wonderful. I pray it stays like that for years of use.
In addition to all the above, I was curious if reading off the drive would also be cracker-jack good. So I copied a multi-Gb HD movie onto the drive and then ran that movie off the thumb. Walla! You'd think you were hot-wired directly to the digital master machine, no a single hickup or delay. I bought another thumb drive at WalMart at the same time and while it was the same price as this one, it ran 5 times more slowly. Ugh.
The product works fine and the read speeds are pretty good. But the write speeds are around the 15MB/s listed in the product title. However, it looks like Amazon has combined comments for three very different products. One (mine) supports 55/15MB per second reads/writes, another 100/70, and another 90/60. They aren't just different colors, they're really different products. This is really misleading and should be addressed. Partially my fault for believing the comments, but partially Amazon's fault for lumping these together incorrectly. I would have spent the extra $3 for the 90/60 "color" had I known the comments were tied to that product.
Has a built-in read/write light. Easily lost cap. "Color change" is a subtle and unremarkable gimmick. But all in all a very good value considering its speed and size!
