Philips USB Flash Drive FM32FD05B 32 GB vivid edition is rated
Rated 1 out of
Incredibly poor write speeds - cannot recommend
I always see write speeds under 1.5 megabytes/second. Often they are well under 1Mb/sec on large (>3Mb) files. I purchased the disk to be a backup device for photos whilst on holiday. It takes far too long to backup <200Mb/day.
I have reformatted the drive - several times. I have used it on MS Windows, Android and Linux operating systems. It does not perform anywhere near the specifications on the Philips web site indicate.
I cannot recommend this USB drive, nor would I consider purchasing a Philips drive in future.
