We perform each test multiple times to ensure that abnormalities don’t enter into the test results.

First we copied a folder containing 12 MKV files, totaling 8GB in size. We copied them to and from each of the drives via an internal sata based Memoright 240GB SSD.

The drive delivers good results when it comes to the read test, averaging around 95 MB/s. The write speed is quite slow however, at 24 MB/s.

Next we copied a folder with many mixed files, ranging in size from simple text based Word documents to several 100 MB video files. The folder size is 1GB. We record the average time taken then work out the speeds of the drives. Again we copy via an internal sata based Memoright 240GB SSD.

With a complex mixed file folder the results from all drives drop significantly. The S107 maintains an average speed around 57 MB/s read and 23 MB/s write.
