Junk - better to throw your money in the trash!

Avidreader, Amazon
7 May 2014
  • Summary: This USB flash drive is not recognized by Windows 8.1 on a USB 3.0 port, or when plugged into a USB 2.0 hub. There are no driver updates available on the Centon website; in fact, when you browse to the product page, the "support" link is dead. Worthless garbage.

SubPar Flash Stick

Steve "SF Lover", Amazon
16 March 2014
  • Summary: I bought this drive because both my PC and Mac can use USB 3.0, but this drive is very sluggish. I have run one pass of Check Flash 1.16.2 on it and while the average read speed is perfectly adequate (113.11 Mb/s) average write speeds flattened out at a dismal 5.71 Mb/s.

Centon Electronics Rush USB 3.0 64GB

Martin 707, Amazon
17 January 2014
  • Summary: Only works on USB 2.0 port on my computer running Windows 8.1. All other USB 3.0 peripherals that I plugged in/out worked perfect. Paid premium price for what supposed to be USB 3.0.Poor manufacture support. Do not buy.

Not compatible with Windows 8 or 8.1 devices

JrSpaceCadet, Amazon

  • Summary: Does not work in any of my Win 8/8.1 devices (tablets, laptops, and desktops). All flag it as an unrecognized device on USB 3 port, all but one don't recognize it even on a USB 2 port.

Be very careful with Centon USB Flash Drives

A. J. Miller "reality hurts briefly, but lies..., Amazon
30 October 2013
  • Summary: I have had 5 Centon Flash Drives, 2 USB 2.0, 3 USB 3.0. Both USB 2.0 and 1 USB 3.0 drives have either become read-only or unreadable suddenly and with no warning. After the 1st failure, I am religious about safely removing hardware, and it still happens.

Good USB 3.0 drive

John H., Newegg
24 June 2012
  • Summary: Got this as a result of RMA'ing a Centon Rush 8 GB that wasn't performing. Centon RMA process was very smooth. This drive was everything I expected from a USB 3.0 drive and twice as large as what I bought. Very satisfied with Centon Customer Service.
  • Pros: 90 MB/s read, 40 MB write on a PCI usb 3.0 add on card. I think that's probably about as fast as the PCI card can deliver for reads. Might be faster on a PCIe card or an on-board usb 3.0 port.
  • Cons: Writes could be faster, although 40 MB/s isn't bad. Could be a little smaller. It's not overly large, I guess average size for a flash drive, but flash drives are getting smaller and smaller.

Was ok while it lasted

Thajones "Tech fiend", Amazon
5 June 2012
  • Summary: Bought it December 2011, and like any drive that doesn't require me to keep up with a cap - you know eventually it's going to grow legs. This one slides to the edge 1/2 inch to protect the connector, although it really doesn't protect INSIDE the connector.

not up to 3.0 speed

Maxx, Amazon
11 July 2011
  • Summary: While it's very fast for 2.0 it can't handle large files any faster than 2.0 speed. Seems any file larger than 3 gig kills the speed. While I haven't tested many smaller files, I got this for the larger files. It's still a nice flash drive at a decent price, but don't expect super speed.
