  • Pros: This is my 3rd PQI USB thumbe drive. like the other older models it has Slick design, price to storage ratio is Inexpensive. Write protection switch
  • Cons: Unlike the older models no Cap holder (cover). Portable apps very slow to run, great for storage only though.

Neat

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Pretty nifty. Like the blue casing, but not a fan of the amber indicator light. It shoulda been blue.
  • Pros: Excellent little gadget. Holds everything I need. Transfers small files very quickly. No file errors as of yet.
  • Cons: Transferring huge files, or a lot of files takes a little time.

I like it!

David K., Newegg
5 December 2006
  • Summary: It works on every machine I've tried it on including dismal old USB1.1 Dells. The amber light is great, it lights up the whole bottom cap and is very bright.
  • Pros: It's really nicely built, looks good and has a solid quality feel. The fit and finish is first class. The pqi logo and "4 GB" is raised and machined out of the aluminum case. Nice touch.
  • Cons: yes, it is a bit slow, but I've never owned a really fast thumb drive so to me it's as fast as my other ones. I'm getting between 8 and 12 MB read and 2 to 7 MB writes. Haven't formatted it yet, still FAT. Will try FAT32 and a partition later. The cap fits nice and tight but it doesn't store anyw...

Nice space

Todd N., Newegg
24 November 2006
  • Summary: Comes with a very nice extension cable if you need to get USB to the front of your computer.
  • Pros: Large enough space for most transfers. High quality design! the metal looks great and retains quite a lot of strength. (My last plastic thumb drive snapped in half with very light use.)
  • Cons: The power consumption is fairly high. This flash device will work in a Mac keyboard port with limited results. Small short transfers in the keyboard port are fine, but longer transfers can simply quit mid-way. However, it works fine in the front port of the G5 Tower. Activity light is an ugly Ora...

Great Drive For the Price

Joshua D., Newegg
11 October 2006
  • Summary: Newegg ROCKS! Ordered the product at 11pm on Monday and got it by 3pm on Wednesday. Never ceases to amaze me!
  • Pros: Dark blue aluminum case is sturdy and the cap is secure. Amber light indicates when USB is connected, idle, or busy. Write protect switch is included, which I like. Write speeds are acceptable, a 50 MB file copied in 10 seconds and a 500MB installation package took about 3 minutes. Approximate wr...
  • Cons: As far as I can tell, none except by "cool drive" they must mean "kind of warm" it has not gotten any hotter than that yet which is good because some drives can get really hot.

Надёжная флешка, которую можно стирать с порошком!

spmrl, otzovik.com
1 October 2010
  • Excerpt: Очень доволен этой флешкой Cool drive U339! Работает уже пять лет. За это время и падала и в огне горела (в смысле подвергалась существенному нагреву) и работала в пыльной и влажной атмосфере и постиралась два раза с порошком и один раз в бензине и хоть бы что - работает и данные после стирки не...
  • Pros: После промокания и просушки данные не пропадают.
  • Cons: Пластмассовый корпус и немного медленно работает.
