64 GB is not as good as previous Exodia 32 GB drive

Strengths:

Not as good as tests two weeks ago on a similar Exodia 32 GB drive. During continuous writing, this 64 GB drive writes at 5 MB/s for about 15 seconds and then stalls for 8 seconds, in a repeating pattern, averaging a lousy 3.4 MB/s overall. The 32 GB drive wrote at a steady 10 MB/s. The 64 GB average read speed was 24.7 MB/s, which is only 2/3 of what USB 2.0 typically does, and not even close to USB 3.x speeds. The 32 GB drive was over 33 MB/s. It's like they have completely different controller chips inside. There were no errors on a full write and read back of pseudo-random data. You get the storage you paid for but ... slowly. The previous 32 GB sample was definitely worth five stars; this 64 GB sample is a big disappointment.

Weaknesses:

Actual capacity is 57.62 GB, as compared to the nominal or advertised 64 GB.
