Every lexar flash drive, I have bought in the last 5 years has failed with 12 months .

No go for lexar
Just heads up that Lexar is now owned by a Chinese company. Whether this has affected the quality of its products or not, I don't know.

Lexar usually had flash storage media that generally had high transfer speeds compared to most competing products but that meant higher prices. Once Micron sold it to the Chinese company, prices went down and I remember multiple deals were posted here and many people were not aware of the change of ownership.
Every Lexar drive I have bought has died on me. I'm pretty sure they build these to fail and for some reason people keep buying them.

Is there a decent speed diffrence between USB 2.0 and 3.0? I've got a 128gb SanDisk Cruzer with USB 2.0 and it works decent but sometimes i wish it was a bit faster.

The limit of each is as follows:
USB 3.0 is capable of transferring data at up to 5 Gbits/s (625 MB/s), which is more than ten times as fast as the 480 Mbit/s (60 MB/s) high speed of USB 2.0

There are many factors involved in the speed that the end user will actually see.
For example the speeds listed for this flash drive are: Up to 150MB/s read, 45MB/s write

The sandisk cruzer averages around 10.8 MB/s and 2.26MB/s for usb 2.0

You will not see usb 3.0 speeds when used on a usb 2.0 port

Got it, so what you're saying is if I had a USB 3.0 Flash Drive used on a 3.0 Port then I should see a decent increase in speed. Thanks, that's exactly what I wanted to know

Yup, indeed. However I might add that in my personal experience, you see speed gains using a USB 3.0 flash drive on a USB 2.0 port but is only limited to the port speed as mentioned by bluekiwi.

The limiting factor is the slow write speed of your drive, not the transfer speed of the drive.

The problem is always the slow write speed. Took your words, USB 2.0. is 60MB/s. The list write speed is only 45MB/s.

60/MBs is full duplex. You will never see 60/MBs writes for usb2, max is 30/MBs.
