Summary: I purchased this almost a year ago. I have washed it accidentally more than once and it still works. I find it fast and reliable. I have used other flash drives previously and often find that they do not last very long. I have used it on several different computers at both home and work and have never had an issue. I am looking for another one and my husband is trying to get me to try another brand. He still hasn't convinced me yet to attempt it.
Summary: Not working after 9 months use. At first it is very fast and nice. But after 9 months, it started working badly. It cannot be recognized neither on PC nor Mac. It rejected by itself suddenly when I plugged in the USB and working, even if I haven't touch it. I use it nicely and reject it correctly every time I use. During the first week of DEC, it stop working any more. My other cheap USBs work better than this 1000 times.
Summary: I have had two of these drives, (two different people/computers using them), and both failed completely, registering as an external drive when you plug into a Win7/8 machine but not being available to copy files to them. 100% failure rate with relatively little use. Look elsewhere if you want reliability...
