This thing is slow. You get around 10-15 MB/s write speed.

I disagree. Maybe you have a faulty port or product. My 32GB and 128GB 3.1 Sandisk drives are fast in a 3.0 port

3.1 gen 2 is much faster. 3.1 gen 1 is like 3.0. and the port type does not indicate the version of speed. No need to look different. the color of the plastic inside might give it away but it is not really standart

Since the 3.0 version also says up to 150MBps. I'm going to say gen 1

USB 3.0 is capable of over 100MB/sec, so that shouldn't cause 10-15MB. Even USB 2.0 is faster than that.

Also, free shipping if you spend $35+.
