Summary: At first, the drive had difficulty of writing large file. I was ready to RMA it back to NCIX. I tried one more time to reformat the drive. After that, the drive wrote and read without problem. The speed is also fantastic. No more complaint.
Summary: I personally have not had a hitch with this drive i see alot of reviews of people having problems which surprises me because so far this refurb has been rock steady and i got it at a messily 12 dollars. my only issue is the size of the thing it is pretty long and the rubber is sticky so it sometimes doesn't want to pull out of my pocket really easily.
Pros: cheap got it for like 12$ on sale, fast, protected with rubber, big space is nice
Cons: long and big i have much smaller 32gb drives that are nearly as fast and probably a 1/3rd of the physical size
Pros: Very fast transfer rates, USB 3.0 - also very decent speeds USB 2.0. I bought this to put OSX on my kid's iMac. No problems what-so-ever. Flash storage has really come down in price in the last year. Definitely worth the 15 bucks. Think I'll buy a few more.
Cons: Rubberized coating around the device hides it's somewhat frail construction. I would be willing to bet one good bend hanging out the side of a laptop would render this device unusable. Just be careful as with any protruding USB device. Nice thing is, if you were to have this situation, it would break the $15 stick and not the USB port in your laptop.
Summary: Heard lots of bad things (file corruption, drive not detected) about this series of flash drive, but for $6, I just wanted to take a chance and hope for the best. Did a couple benchmarks and file transfer test, and found that it's not as fast as advertised on NCIX. Later I found out the spec on NCIX is wrong.
Pros: It's short, not as long as the 32 or 64GB version.
