I just got a 32GB (Black version, model PSF32GAUSBG) in earlier this week, purchased from NewEgg.
My speeds are consistently about ~5MB/sec write and about 16MB/sec read
For me it was free after rebate and coupon, and going to use to backup photos and misc files when travelling, so it works for that at that price. Otherwise I would be disappointed in the performance.

I use the 64GB version of this to play music in my car. Its great and bad at the same time. It is very slow to copy things to it, but you can play mp3s from it just fine. I like it for my car because its so so so tiny its not intrusive. Its only the size of the USB plug itself.
Basically if you plan to copy stuff to it infrequently, and need a small (as in physical size) drive. its nice.

I did mean MB per second. And yes, it does take 5-6 minutes per GB to write to the 32GB version of this drive.
I transferred a bunch of files that were ~29 gigabytes, and it took two and a half hours.

This was with a 32GB also. I don't know how the 64GB compares.
Edit:I get 30MB/sec read (pretty much maxing out USB2, which is 30-33MB/sec depending on the computer), and 10MB/sec writes. This is with a 1GB test file.
It's perfect for a read-only drive on most computers since few use USB3 yet. 4K random always sucks with USB drives though, so rarely will a faster drive speed up installs stored on the drive, or pre-installed environment boot times.
