Summary: As this is my first USB3 flash drive I am very pleased with the speed. I'm averaging 90 MB/s write and 160 MB/s read. I no longer have to wait forever to transfer files. Only cons about this is the construction. Wish is was made of metal, the plastic feels a little flimsy. But for the price, I can live with it. Just need to be gentle.
Summary: I have had mine for over a year now and it has worked faultlessly throughout that period. The USB connector got a bent a little bit, but the sliding mechanism still works. I primarily bought to copy and store files and to run a portable Linux OS and because of its speed, the plastic finish was a bit of a letdown. It is very quick when transferring large files, but does slow down with smaller and random reads and writes, but for my purposes it works just great.
Summary: I've had bad experiences with USB thumbs that slide in/out but for the lightning deal price, I couldn't resist. This device has a great transfer speed and is very reliable. The 3.0 appears to have a great clock speed as well but I haven't transferred anything over 1.5MB with USB 3.0.
Summary: Be sure to check the various sizes, as the larger drives sometimes are only a few dollars more. In recommend getting the biggest drive you can afford as sometime you may/will need it. If you're a Mac user setting up or erasing this flash/thumb drive up with your computer is super easy follow these steps. 1. Plug in the the drive 2. Open up disk utility found in your applications folder inside the utilities folder 3.
Summary: The good: > fast memory. I didn't do precise speed tests, but performance is noticeably faster than other 64GB USB drives in my library > slim design: not as thick as most thumb drives, so storage (in a pocket or collection) takes less space > aluminum outer shell seems strong and less likely than plastic to crack if dropped > ships with a short lanyard The not so good: > between the two metal halves of the outer shell is a plastic layer, and it is within this plastic...
