Mushkin Ventura Review
The Mushkin Venturaâ€™s only attribute to speak of is itâ€™s size. This thing is the size of the USB port itself and Iâ€™m tempted to say Iâ€™ve not seen so small a drive for a good while now, if ever. Â That being said, letâ€™s go to the performance.
The Mushkin Venturaâ€™s performance is poorer than a Greek under recession. If you sum up the sequential read/write you couldnâ€™t reach the read of an average USB 3.0 . Ponder on that for a while. Anyways, the technicalities compel me to state it nonetheless: it goes as ” high ” as Â 65 mbps write and 24 mbps read. But wait ! It gets worse. The Mushkin Ventura performed horribly in the 4k random writes, having a read of 12 mbps and a write of 0.02 mbps. Did you read that? Read again : A WRITE OF 0.02 mbps. Auch. It pains me even to imagine what they were using when they tested this, and I seriously doubt the guy who put it on the market.
The Mushkin Ventura is priced at $38 for a 32GB and they market it as having an 120 MBPS read and 70 mbps write sequential, which is a horrendous lie. All in all, this drive is weak. Iâ€™m not even going to mention the device, since it becomes quite irrelevant under the circumstances, and I already mentioned itâ€™s small. Small enough to lose, that is.
