Performance tests

On Aja, the 16GB review sample notched up a write speed of 22.2MB/s (down from the video’s 26.3MB/s) and a read speed of 33.8MB/s compared to 34.9MB/s achieved on the clip. The results on CrystalDiskMark were less impressive, being at least a third slower than LaCie’s maximum write speed claims. Incidentally, the Kingston Data Traveler Ultimate included in the graphs is a USB 3.0 drive but the results reflect its performance when used on a USB 2.0 interface. Also, the Freecom CLS is a mobile USB 2.0 hard drive, shown for comparison.
