For those who are considering to purchase a SanDisk USB Drive, particularly Cruzer Contour 32GB model, you may want to hold your purchase. I have been using the drive series from the very beginning, starting from 8 GB, then 16GB and last week, I bought 32GB. The speed has been amazing, I can transfer files very fast using this USB drive, however, the latest 32GB is a turtle. Here's some rough benchmark using Finder to copy a 4GB iso file to a freshly formatted drive: 8GB -> Write averaged at 17MB/s 16GB -> Write averaged at 23MB/s 32GB -> Write averaged at 3.5MB/s (There is a dot between 3 and 5, meaning 1/7 of the 16GB performance). I swapped with another unit, still the same issue. I hope SanDisk Distributor can escalate this and accordingly replaced with me a working drive. 3.5 MB/sec is a joke for a flagship performance USB drive. The box wrote 25 MB/s Read, 18MB/s write. It has exceeded that in 16GB but failed in 32GB.
