Summary: Transfer 3GB in 1 minute with a USB 3 port, or 4 minutes with a USB 2 port. Having all my pictures on one tiny portable device as a backup is super convenient, portable and enabling. 256-bit AES encryption - which I don't use for my pictures (what I am storing on the disk), but find very attractive if I also want to store financial info off my computer.
Speedy, great on-the-go design, useful encryption software

Summary: Good ol' trusty, flash drive. The lexar jumpdrive intends to be a compact, portable, fast drive with easy to use encryption software. Speeds are comparable to external hard drives. The design is perfect - spin to close and the usb connection is hidden. Spin it out and the usb head comes up like a mole in a whack mole game. It also snaps in place when it's either being opened or closed.
Summary: I have used Lexar JumpDrives for a long time, and I find them to be very reliable. This one is about half the size of my other Lexar 32 GIG USB 3 stick, and has a nice sort of tiny strap designed to let you hook it to a keyring. The big thing to remember is that it is USB 3.0, which is MUCH faster than 2.0. The actual speed you get will depend upon the mix of files you are copying. I have a folder of mixed files that I like to use for testing.
Summary: The device I received is not like the one in the picture. It does not swivel. It has an end that emerges when you push on the button in the center. This drive is very flimsy. It's all plastic and I don't expect it to be durable. It comes formatted fat 32 and it seems to work on my Windows 8 pcs and on my Mac.
Summary: It took only a few years for flash drives to plummet in price. I remain amazed that you can get so much data storage space in such a small package for so little. This Lexar unit is very attractive. It is a swivel design, which some people find more convenient. Speaking of convenience, a small strap comes in the package for attaching the drive to your key ring.
OK, but only just, and for $5 more you can get a terrific SanDisk

Summary: I was given this drive for free as a Vine reviewer, and I feel a need to find something good to say about it, but I'm having a hard time doing so. Why? It works OK, but I think you can do much better for a little bit more. How specifically? You can get a SanDisk Extreme CZ80 for about $25 as I write this (same 32GB) whereas this is about $20.
