Summary: I bought this on sale. Its pretty good. The one major thing I don't love about it is how the slide cap does not lock closed so when it is in my pocket it tends to expose. All in all it doesn't really matter but one would expect this to work a bit better especially when this is why i chose a capless stick in the first place.
Summary: The drive is a fair deal for the sale price but the USB 3 performance isn't as good as expected overall. I have a couple other USB 3 drives and this is the slowest of the bunch. The read speeds I got with large files were decent at over 100MB/s but the write speeds are slow at under 19MB/s which isn't much better than a USB 2 drive.
Summary: Pros: it work well, and read speed is very potent on this drive (about 60-70 MB/s). 30$ price and 5 years warranty from a reputable manufacturer. Cons: write speed!!!!! Around 13MB/s on USB3! To me this is a big con because when you have that much room for data you don't want to wait forever for the files to copy... I've had FASTER USB 2 drives (such as the old Sandisk Ducati edition that pushed a steady 20MB/s write speed).
Pros: -Lots of room, -Price (on special), -Read speed, -5 years warranty
Cons: -Dissapointing write speed, -Quirky construction
Summary: I picked this up for $17 on sale to check out a USB3 thumb drive. It comes with a fat32 format which is universal, but not useful for my purposes. I reformatted to a Linux file format, so I could try 10gig plus transfers, and all seems fine except that speed really drops off after a few seconds. It is large and that may give issues if adjacent ports are taken up by some larger USB wifi or mouse receiver sticks.
Pros: Price on sale., Warranty of 5 years., Faster than USB2
Cons: Write speed fast at first, then slows. See below.
