Microcenter USB Flash Drive writing speed - can it be improved?


If anyone from Microcenter is reading this, I beg you, please have the company that manufactures your USB flash drives improve their writing speed! In my business, I have to write several GB worth of files to USB flash drives every day, and your drives, when placed in USB 3 ports, have write speeds measured in KB/s. It can take hours to write a few files to one of your drives, and this is true on any computer that I am using.

    Greetings. Sounds like you might have a defective drive if it is happening on multiple computers. The Micro Center branded drives I use do not have slow writing speeds like this. If you have an issue wth a Micro Center drive, we can assist with warranty on them directly at your local Micro Center store.
