Summary: I also have the 32GB version (model PEF32GSBUSB) and the write speeds on this seem much slower, even though they're both USB 3.0. On this drive, I usually get 35-45 MB/sec write speeds, where I get 105-115 MB/sec on the 32G model.
Pros: Nice high quality rubber coating and cap
Cons: Not a capless design, so don't lose that cap!
Summary: I wanted these to work. So much that I'd bought over a dozen of them. Never again.
Pros: Very fast
Cons: I own several of these and bought many to use to support systems I was deploying. The problem is that the rubber body SO EASILY gets pulled back from the internals when pulling it out of the USB port. I was aware of this and took extra care and it STILL happened. I've thrown away about 6 of these...
Summary: The first thing I did, after opening the package, is to test the speed. The manufacturer rates this flash drive at 30MB/s write and 150MB/s read. The one that arrived at my place was able to write 47MB/s average and read about 123MB/s on average.
Summary: Just to be fair, I have lost all my data on this drive. However, my issue is with the overall design of the drive. At first the rubber exterior was quite rigid, but after a while it became soft and eventually pulled off of the internal board like a sleeve.
the product seems great but the packaging wasteful I ordered a dozen drives ...

Summary: the product seems great but the packaging wasteful I ordered a dozen drives and got 8 large boxes - 6 of them with one jump drive each (and each box could have held more than the entire dozen) All boxes came from the same mailing address - seems silly . . .
