Summary: Was happy to get another 16gb drive since I lost my Patriot 16gb drive. My son got a SanDisk 16gb Cruzer Glide for me and since I've used SanDisk in the past I expected great transfer speeds. Was I ever shocked to get less than 6mb transfer rate on this drive. It is even so slow that when I try to play a movie from it on my HD tv it causes problems during the playback.
Summary: I was excited about this product until I got it and noticed that every time that I plug it into my computer the button collapses and then I have to hold the button forward just to get it into the drive.
Summary: I had no idea it was going to be a hassle to store data on this flash drive. How do I update a device with this if it demands a password to unlock their vault. It is not my vault. It is their vault. All the other flash-drives I have can be plugged in and access what is on them. I guess if someone does not want others knowing what is on the drive it works good for them.
Summary: I really like the idea of the Bamboo casing. There's so many generic looking USB flash drives out there, this one stands out with it's unique look. I'm a photographer, and purchased a few of these to deliver images to clients. The drawback I quickly found was the extremely slow transfer speeds. This drive was running approximately 3 mb/s on transfers. I swapped out to different flash drive I had laying around, and redid the transfer to that drive as a test.
Summary: I bought these a couple months ago, havent used them much atleast not on a daily basis. They only work about half of the time, whether in linux or windows. used on multiple computers, these are awful. I have a 3 year old usb 1.0 drive that works better than these.
Summary: Rather disappointed with these drives considering it had the Sandisk name. But, I guess even Sandisk has drives that are "you get what you pay for." When I saw this twin pack of 32 GB drives for $40, I jumped on it. But, the drives seem to copy really slow, and often times, copying large files would fail altogether. I work with several different models of PC's and workstations at work and some of the PC's won't even detect the drive.
