Like the Buffalo Type R, the Type S is marketed as having very high data transfer rates. The packaging reads “Up to 18 times faster than competitors” and “Read speed 27MB/s” and “Write speed 18MB/s.” An excellent drive - on paper. But before reviewing the results, we should take time to mention the Type S's aesthetics. This drive is particularly well designed – very flat, but a bit long at 7.5 cm by 1.8 cm. The cap fits onto the rear, so you won’t have to worry about losing the cap when the drive is in use. The speeds we clocked really surprised us. On paper, this model is slower than the Type R version from the same maker. But in practice, it was the complete opposite. We clocked a write rate of 19.8 MB/s. The 4 GB of storage space can be filled in 3 minutes 20 seconds. As for read speeds, this key even came close to the OCZ Rally 2 Turbo, with a rate of 27.1 MB/s. That means you can offload its contents in about two and a half minutes.
