Summary: I transferred 4GB of music files from my SSD to this Flash Drive, it took 36 seconds, and a few of the music files were ~ 30 minutes long, the rest were normal length. Although slower than spec, it does not get "hot" as some have reported, possibly due in part because there is an exhaust fan in my...
Pros: Fast Does not get hot [as some have reported]
Cons: Less than advertised speed. Roughly 198.7 MB/s Read Roughly 193 MB/s Write [according to crystalmark Sequential benchmarks]
Summary: I like SanDisk flash drives and own a number of the Extreme models in various capacities. Although there are a few others that benchmark slightly better, they are also significantly more expensive (the Lexar P-10 series, for example). I think SanDisk represents the best value for the money.
Pros: On previous comments, I noted that I have purchased three of these drives and none of the three was able to break 200 MB/s on either Read or Write. I returned all three. But when Newegg ran them on sale for $59.99 -- and I had a $20.00 Newegg gift card -- I thought I would give it another try for...
Cons: Not a con with this one, but that means the other three drives I returned -- that couldn't break 200 MB/s -- did have some valid problems.
Pros: I was looking for the fastest flash drive I could get to get all my updates on, and this guy fit the bill. The metal casing feels solid, and the sliding mechanism doesn't feel like it will break any time soon.
Cons: Speed isn't cheap, and this drive is no exception.
Summary: It looks like a nice unit, but has some issues. It comes formatted fat32 and can't handle large files. You have to re-format to exfat or ntfs for large files. Case is big. On my laptop there are three usb ports stacked vertically.
Summary: This SanDisk Extreme is pretty much the best and most reliable USB Flash drive i have ever owned. I have currently 3 of these and all have been working excellently. It has a very consistent transfer speed of 100+ MB/s when copying large files over USB 3.0, but of course slower with tons of smaller...

Summary: These little flash drives are great. I do a lot of backup of work files and the time I have saved. I have USB 3.0 ports and the speed of date transfer to and from saves me a lot of time. I also like the slide locking in place and it is pretty fluid in its movement.
Looks good - appears better built than 128gb USB 3

Summary: Looks good - appears better built than 128gb USB 3.0 cruiser thumb drive. UNFORTUNATELY very disappointed in the speed that the drive copies files from the SanDisk Extreme PRO CZ88 128GB USB 3.0 Flash drive from the DRIVE through a USB3.0 HUB through a USB 3.0 cable to a USB 3.0 port & on my laptop.
