  • Summary: I get 3.7MB/s writes (yuck) and 31.6MB/s reads (meh). It's not really all that fast, but it is reasonably cheap...

Good quality device with poor write speeds, but good read speed.

Speeds are not nearly as impressive as some other USB 3.0 drives, but if you are using this device for music, movies, or documents, they should be more...

Works perfectly

  • Summary: It works well, plug and plays exactly as it should. USB transfer speeds are good. It automatically retracts when you unplug it, which caught me off guard the first time it happened, but is a convenient feature if you think about it.
