Review: Silicon Power Blaze B05 32GB Reviewed by: Antonis Sapanidis Provided by: Silicon Power Manufactured: in Taiwan

Over the last few years we have seen big steps in flash drives, and many of the new USB3 flash drives are pushing the boundaries even further with their performance. Silicon Power is one of the manufacturers that continues to show new flash drives, with an attractive design, an impressive build quality, and hopefully with this review we will see if they also manage to push performance forward with the new Blaze B05 USB flash drive. The Silicon Power Blaze B05 comes in three colours, Classic Black, Navy Blue and Sweet Pink, so you have the option to choose whatever colour you like. It also comes in capacities of 8GB, 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB, and as you can see Silicon Power give you more than enough options to choose from.

Now let's start this review for the Silicon Power Blaze B30 by taking a look at the packaging and contents.

A quick look at the Silicon Power B05 and its specifications

The Silicon Power B05 has a very simple and plain package, and as you can see the front and the back of this package are almost identical with the Marvel M60 that I reviewed back in 2012. The only thing that changed is the name of the drive and the four icons at the bottom. As you can see the review drive is a black with a size of 32GB.
