Overall, during our use and testing of the Mushkin Ventura 16 GB USB 3.0 flash drive was great. I found myself frequently using the Ventura USB drive to transfer larger files, which is what makes the drive stand out. The design is nothing impressive but is slim and light. Ultimately, the Mushkin Ventura proved to be a well-rounded and high-performance 16 GB flash drive. For around $25.99, the Ventura is a great for professional use or personal use.
