Summary: Constructed of 100% genuine plastic... When I inserted it into my USB port, all the rest of my USB devices ceased working. No keyboard, mouse, external hard drives, controller, webcam... and no lexar jump drive. Immediately upon pulling it out everything started working again. I've never seen anything like it. Returned and got a refund, don't buy this one. If you can get one that works, it should be a good price for what it is...
Summary: So poorly built, you'll be afraid to use it. They actually used wafer-thin plastic for the USB connector, instead of metal. The packaging is more durable than the product. Really disappointing.
Summary: When I received this, I thought it was a dummy unit (only plastic casing, no brains). This jump drive seems like a toy - I guess this is what Lexar needs to do to try and make some money. I would reccommend someone at Lexar recording any of their engineers trying to insert/install the little keychain chord that comes with the drive - really bad user experience, clearly no one has ever even tried to make that work.
Summary: The entire thumb drive is made out of thin cheaply made plastic. I dont know what Lexar was possibly thinking by doing this, aside from having customers flash drives breaking long before they should to encourage more sales? Sorry, but after seeing you do this, Im not spending another cent on your drives Lexar.
Summary: Considering Lexar's usually quality products, this one is surprisingly bad. While transfer speeds are usually acceptable, for some reason this USB drive dramatically slows down cursor/mouse movements dramatically. It doesn't matter which port it's plugged in, once it is, the cursor stalls, then tries to play catch up, sometimes goes in completely wrong directions. It's as if plugging this device in somehow interferes with the functionality of the mouse.
Excerpt: Just bought this to replace a PNY that was also USB 3.0. To my surprise, Lexar is a much faster drive. I wasn't expecting too much of a difference, but it is definitely notable. I definitely see why others complain about the plastic of the drive, but if you are storing important data (I store high quality photos & videos for my clients), you shouldn't be throwing this in your pocket. Great product!
Excerpt: I purchased 30 of these for my school. They all have the same issue. These are really fast, but after several uses they have trouble connecting to the computer and once you get it connected, it will be lost if the drive is at all jostled. Hardware: MacBook 2009 - Mac Mini 2009.
