Summary: Wow, the casing on this item is the flimsiest plastic you could imagine. It feels feather light, almost like it's completely empty. If you were to throw this in a book bag, or accidentally sit on it, it would be crushed in an instant. But having said that, it transfers files like a champ, and setup was instant. Pop it in & you're ready to go! It seems very fast to me, and all video/pic/mp3 files, etc. transferred easily and non corrupted. Impressive speed & efficiency.
a good product if you do not desire password protection

Summary: The Verbatim USB 2.0 8 gb drives are easy to use. This product does NOT have the option of password protection, which is the reason that I gave it only 3 stars. It is excellent for photos, music, etc. I think the option to password protect a USB should be available for all products and leave it up to the user whether or not to invoke the option.
Summary: I purchased this item in the 128GB capacity. It cost a bit over 100 bucks; And in the word of a previous poster I would call it an "Oversized Jump Drive". Not quite the capacity to make it a useful tool. Flimsy casing. Tiny USB3 cable. Cheaply crafted. Taking it for what it is, I have to admit that it's very useful - copying 10s of gigabytes of data respectably quickly in my opinion.
Great Speed, but with A lot of Connection Problems.

Summary: EDIT 6/16/13: I had so many issues with this drive I eventually had to trash it, in fact, it stopped working all together due to the connection issues, did not think to contact customer support... So I can't vouch for how they would have helped. :( ___________________________________________________ ORIGINAL REVIEW: I got this hard drive to for my husband to replace his old USB 2.0 hard drive which he had had for 4yrs, and has been quite beaten up, and I wanted to give...
Summary: I ordered this SSD based on four criteria: price, capacity, read MBps, and write MBps. The first drive I received was DOA, so I needed to do an exchange, but amazon is always great about that. So far I'm satisfied with this drive, however there are a couple things that I find odd: 1. The drive is bulky for an SSD; I had to use the bottom screw holes on the drive when mounting it to my Thinkpad W510's hard drive tray. 2.
Summary: This is a nice little flash drive. It's not too expensive but quite fast for the price. It may lack some of the high end security features but is great for exchanging things like photos where security is not a major concern. Often you need an inexpensive and efficient little flash drive containing photos from a birthday party or BBQ that you can hand to friends and family. Many times you never see that flash drive again.....
