Works great.

Megan Ellinger, Amazon
13 September 2014
  • Summary: I needed a simple USB drive to hold my documents as a backup. This works perfectly on the variety of computers I've used it on. The product is a little darker than the picture shows and it isn't quite as easy to see the "guts" of it as I would have liked.

A year of use and it's falling apart

R. Cortez, Amazon
13 September 2014
  • Summary: I've had this external hard drive for about a year now and I had no problems with it the first 6 months but afterwards, it started falling apart physically.This is not a well-known brand of thumb drives and as you would suspect, it is made out of cheap plastic.I purchased it for $12 which was outrageously cheap for 16gb at the time.I thought it was a great bargain but I got what I paid for.The plastic casing is breaking, revealing the chip and other critical parts within...

it broke

Chris Cox, Amazon
19 September 2011
  • Summary: Im not really sure if its because of user error because i let a friend borrow it, but mine died within a month. i didnt think about this before i bought it but also the transfer rate (downloading to USB) is kinda slow, but if u dont need speed and are careful maybe this is the flash for you.

EMTEC Apparently Not Reliable

Rick Dubbs, Amazon
27 September 2010
  • Summary: Shortly after I purchased this flash drive (within 30 days), it crashed taking my photos with it. I was able to recover most/all. Amazon quickly replaced the drive, and all has been good until today. It crashed again, loosing about 24Gb of photos. I don't yet have a backup (that computer w/a 1Tb drive is on the way), and I hope to again recover most/all of my files. However, after being twice burned, I will not buy another flash drive from EMTEC.

Dead drive after only a few months

LaraNH, Amazon
16 August 2010
  • Summary: I bought this in mid-April 2010 and used it very rarely, storing it in its own pocket in my purse, capped when not in use. I needed to transfer a large amount of data yesterday and midway through was no longer able to write to the drive. Ejecting and plugging it back in came up with "you need to format this drive before you can use it." Quick/Long, NTFS/FAT - no formatting worked.

POS

B, Amazon
3 August 2010
  • Summary: Zero stars for this POS. This system would not let me give it ZERO. Three of these drives just stopped working about three weeks after starting to use. Would not let me reformat, all files lost, no recovery software worked and both pc and mac systems would not work in.

emtec 32 gb lemon

NORMAN G. DENNIS, Amazon
22 July 2010
  • Summary: I have had mine 2 weeks and it is locked up. It says corrupted drivers. It was slow, but it did work for 2 weeks. For me, this is a piece of junk. It shows all 32gb being used up; the most I ever have on it at once is 1.5 gb..

Cheap for a reason

L. Hamitlon, Amazon
16 July 2010
  • Summary: I should have non, the price was too good to be true. The flash drive worked for about two months, then suddenly none of my computers were able to transfer data onto it. I contacted customer service, and they never responded. Next time I'll pay extra and purchase a none brand.

Corrupted my files

SS, Amazon
4 July 2010
  • Summary: I've had a few of these in the past. I needed a 32gb to store 10 years worth of pictures. I was able to put all of them on the flash drive but when I went to remove them and reinstall a new batch a whole group of pictures wouldn't come off the flash drive. I kept getting a corrupt message. I tried to install the next batch of pictures and kept getting corrupt messages again. I can't clean it off or add anything.
