Ruggedised, specifically designed to reliably operate in harsh usage environments and conditions.
[A] All performance tests were conducted using the FAT32 file system. Performance ranking was based on using results of testing using the USB 2.0 connection. Overall Score is weighted equally between read and write tests.
[B] Usable capacity is determined after attaching the devices to the test system (running Win 7 Professional 64-bit), straight out of the box. Some may have different capacities due to the included software and formatting.
[C] The only device with a USB 3.0 interface. It was tested using both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0, but the performance score was derived from the USB 2.0 results. USB 3.0 timings are included to show the difference between the interface types.
