Summary: Fine, inexpensive thumbdrive. Just one problem-it is too wide to fit in my MacBook Pro's USB ports if the other port is occupied. I had to find an old port expander-just bad design, no thinking. Also the "closing slide" isn't even useful.
Summary: It has a nice form factor, and there is a sliding cover for the USB port. This 16GB USB drive has a read speed of 121.2MB per second, and a write speed of 58.15 MB per second write speed (averaged over three runs of USBFlashBenchmark utility).
Summary: Bought 5 of them because I'm tired of writing ISO files for different operating systems constantly. 2 of the 5 are virtually DOA. I can write to them, but once I unplug them, plug them back in immediately - they need to be formatted.
Summary: save up money and find something else in the 200mbs to 400mbs speed range if you care about transfer speeds.
Pros: 1. Its a USB 3.0 flashdrive 2. It works ok for what I use it for 3. Its pretty cheap
Cons: 1. I don't like the sliding cover. I have to push more on the end of the drive to inset into my usb 3.0 port or the sliding part will make it harder to put in. 2. Slower than I expected - only about 40mbs based on what i've read. Why can't all usb 3.0 flash drives all work at max speed?! Back in ...
