Summary: Amazing, isn't it? So much storage capacity in such a small package.I got this on an Amazon Gold box special, so it is an especially fine bargain. This is larger than your typical flash drive and plugging it into a USB socket on your computer may be a tight fit if the adjoining socket is occupied.It will also feel rather large on a key ring, which is where mine is going to live.
Still kicking after a trip through the washing machine and dryer
17 March 2014
Summary: I accidentally left it in my pocket and the drive went through the whole washer and dryer cycle. All the data is intact and the drive performance did not degrade at all. It's pretty unbelievable. But I would be buying again.
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.
Summary: Overall this a very well built drive and all the tests I performed came very close to the advertised speeds. I had trouble finding any faults with it. Though I would assume I high end flash drive they could throw in a cheap lanyard into the packaging.
Pros: The device features a sliding mechanism rather then the standard cap which many people tend to lose.
