Summary: I was sent a 16gb Lexar Echo by mistake and decided if give it a shot instead of sending it back. Out of the half a dozen or so flash drives I owned this is by far the fastest and most compact. Because I was so impressed I have since bought Lexar brand flash drives exclusively.
Summary: bought four of these and none of them work OOB on any computer shows up as Removable Disk and is assigned a driver letter when you try to open the drive, "Please insert disk" message appears when you try to format the drive, "There is no disk" message appears drive manager shows "No Media" Lexar has...
Not fun! Don't save anything important on this device

Summary: I bought two of these 16GB about three months ago. First one failed in about two months, looked completely blank (main directory empty) even though I had unfortunately stored about 10GB on it. LEXAR people suggested PCINSPECTOR, which saw the files, and it took two days to recover them.
Summary: Really thought these things either died early or lasted forever. This one checks out as "healthy" according to Windows, but chokes while files are being copied to it. Lexar Tech Support was polite but concluded there's no fixing it.
Summary: I bought this primarily for backups, and it lives permanently attached to a slot on my case. The low profile makes it easy to forget about (that's good) and doesn't disturb the other nearby ports.
Summary: Bought for my wife's car - full sized USB sticks hanging out of the dash don't work well w/2 kids. This USB drive is perfect - small, does not stick out, not prone to breakage. Great value too!
Summary: Wow, this thing is incredible. It's super tiny and yet can fit soo much data. But the best part is that compared to similar sized USB drives in its class, this one is probably the fastest as far as transfer rates are concerned. This is my primary reason for buying this in the first place.
