Testing: Custom Files
Nothing reveals true performance more than actually using the hardware as it was meant to be used. That's why this last benchmark is very simple and something anyone can do. Files of varying sizes, small and large, are transferred to the memory cards and the time taken is recorded. Time measurements are taken using a stopwatch. The stopwatch is started as soon as the Windows file transfer window appears and stopped after it closes. After an individual file is tested, it is then deleted before the next file, and the preceding steps are taken again until testing is complete. Average transfer speeds are then calculated by dividing the real file size by the recorded transfer time. Lower transfer times and higher speeds are better.
Custom File Transfers:
The Kingston encrypted drive performs rather well by winning in both tests. Even though it is only rated to write at 5 MB/s, the drive pulled over 13 MB/s in both the 500 MB and 1000 MB file write tests. Impressive to say the least for a drive with full hardware encryption!
