Summary: I just needed a flash drive to instal a new operating system and it's done the job.
Pros: Works as advertised, plug it in and put data on it. The case looks nice and the extension/retraction slider is clean and locks firmly. The strap feels sturdy.
Cons: The case may look nice but it's a bit flimsy. It didn't take long at all for the top case to fall off. This doesn't adversely effect the functioning of the drive but if you plan to carry it around this might be a problem.
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: Test done on a ASUS P8Z77-V LK with a i7-3770k CPU and Plextor M5s SSD. USB3 drivers from motherboard manufacturer were installed on windows 7. This was just an impromptu eyeball test using windows resource monitor, equivalent to sequential file copying. I quickformatted the DashDrive to NTFS at the largest allocation unit size (64kb). (This may affect drive portability between machines.) I used two files whose total size was ~24.9GB.
Pros: This sucker is FAST, true USB3 speeds. (sequential writes) SSD->USB3: ~90MB/sec. USB3->SSD: ~195MB/sec Came with a strap.
Cons: As should be suspected, the total size is 31.6 gb. That means, after partition data, it actually only holds ~29.3 GB data. This is a smaller storage space than many "ripped" bluray movie disc sizes. It seems to run hot (also not surprising, given the data transfer rate).
