Summary: It does the job. I wished it had a cover. It can slide to cover but the opening is still opened and prone to collect dirt and dust. Next time not getting this particular one. Speed and all is ok.
Summary: This is a rather interesting looking flash drive. The flash drive slot slides into the body, so it's still not protected very well, and I have had Lexar's wipe themselves on me before, not that I'm saying this one will. The light part on the memory meter is how much you have taken up.
Summary: Even though Lexar claims the drive write speed can be up to 17MB/s, the actual write speed on my systems is about 6MB/s (11GB files, newly formatted NTFS, Windows 7, USB 2.0, drive encryption is not enabled). The small files do seems to be uploaded faster, but in fact they sit in the memory cache and slowly get pushed onto the drive after you'd think they were already uploaded. Reading is definitely better, as many noted.
Summary: After about a week of owning this product, now have gotten a fatal error. I have sent a mail to Lexar support. Let's see how fast they are to resolve the problem. I've had a MicroSD card fail on me, but not as quickly as this USB flash drive has failed. Update: I'm upgrade this product from 1-star to 3-stars. They were prompt in a reply. They had me reformat the drive and then gave me updated software to place on the driver.
Summary: First thing I did when I connected the drive was to reformat it to Mac Journaled format. I was able to copy a 3GB file to the drive in under 7 minutes which is pretty good. When I bought the drive I wasn't aware of the capacity meter and frankly, it's a useless feature. Like any other drive, once you mount an open it, you can see how much space is left. My primary reason for purchase was capacity and price.
