Summary: Functions as advertised: great, FAST! The one thing I'd like to have potential buyers be aware of is the SIZE of this device: 1+ inches wide. Not a problem for most PCs, but my All-in-One PC's USB 3 ports are arranged end-to-end, rather than side-by-side, making it a tight squeeze even with a 'normal' flash drive in the adjacent slot. But, I'm keeping this speedy flash drive.
Summary: I was given this drive as a gift, didn't need it at the time and put it in a draw. Yesterday i pulled it out and when I checked it on my computer it shows a capacity of 32GB, NOT 64GB. The somehow mislabeled this in manufacturing. I have sent an email to their cust.support. We'll see what happens. I will post an update. Drive performs as should but I got screwed cacpacity-wise.
Summary: It a flash drive, so it does what it's supposed to do. Fast and stable, no complaints there. Only thing that I should mention is that it has a key ring slot...but the slot has flat shape, and is pretty wide. So unless you have a key ring that's flat, it probably won't fit into that slot. Mine fit just right, but with the drive being so wide, it doesn't have the space to really move around. If I were to hang my keys on a hook..
9 months of 24/7 *constant* use in a compile+test server before it died. exceeded my expectations!

Summary: I bought one for use on a buildbot, 24/7 compile and test server. It lasted 9 months before it failed and turned itself into a read only brick (a good end of life flash drive failure mode!). Not bad at all for a USB anything. For regular consumer use to archive and move data between machines, you are likely to never experience this flash drive's end of life.
Summary: I bought this drive in December 2012 and it has rarely left my pocket since. It has been dropped, stepped on, run through the washing machine, etc. I use it daily and have never experienced any issues. Two potential problems: 1. This drive is considerably larger than most flash drives. This could be a an issue when using USB ports that are laid out very close together. 2. The cap!!! I lost it within a few weeks.
Pros: Good, fast USB 3.0 transfers on both Mac OS and Windows 7.
Cons: The metal case was labeled 128 GB even though it's a 64 GB model (both based on what I purchased and the capacity in Disk Utility). It's also a bit wider than I like, and blocks an adjacent USB port on my MacBook Air.
Summary: Simply the best. It's even faster on a usb 2.0 port than my old usb 2.0 stick, but of course I mainly use it on a usb 3.0 port. Buy it! and don't lose it Don't ever buy a usb stick unless it can specifically state the sequential read/write speeds.
