Great Flash Drive, Read other reviews with caution

Peter C., Newegg
2 November 2014
  • Summary: Some people do not have a high tech level and may read reviews claiming that this will not hit desired speeds. Think to yourself... what system was he on? Cpu? ram? etc... I even saw one where they were using a adapter (this just adds another layer) On my system this Hit if not EXCEEDED all...
  • Pros: This drive is FAST, yes the 64GB would be almost twice as fast, but the 32 can hit speeds up to and over 100mb/s for write. Thats good enough for me.
  • Cons: Build quality is not that great, but I will make that sacrifice for how fast it is. Only flash drive I ever had with great build quality was a silicone power one, but it was slow as a turtle. I will take the speed and just be careful not to drop it from my roof. The other Con is the fact that its...

Finally

John F., Newegg
21 October 2014
  • Pros: Fast. This thing reads at 200MBs and writes at 100+MBs. That's what I've been looking for. Most USB 3.0 flash drives read/write at about 20/10. That's not even a really good USB 2.0 drive. If it lasts a year, it's well worth the thirty bucks I paid for it.
  • Cons: None so far.

Perfect for Windows to Go.

Daniel P., Newegg
18 September 2014
  • Pros: Uses an SSD Controller. You can make this a boot-able Windows 8.1 flash drive that will boot on any computer. Other boot-able Flash drives would cost 3 times as much and not as fast.
  • Cons: Bought it on sale and hard to find at the sale price

U3 software does not run

Deacon, Amazon
8 September 2014
  • Summary: Don't waste your money with a SanDisk. I have tried for two days to get the Launchpad to work and it won't. Might as well use a cheaper flash drive without the non-working software. SanDisk's web page is no help. They suggest editing the registry. After 30 minutes, that did not work.

Solid choice for speed

Munan X., Newegg
2 September 2014
  • Summary: - The activity LED is relatively dim which can be a good or bad thing. - The slider is spring loaded which is fun to play with.
  • Pros: Very fast drive, it effectively saturates USB 2.0 ports and on a proper USB 3.0 port there is a nice speed bump there if your system can handle it. I highly recommend formatting it in ExFat instead of the FAT format it comes in especially since this is a relatively high capacity drive, and files ...
  • Cons: It is a bit big for a flash drive by modern standards, although given it's performance this is mostly forgivable. However, I felt I still had to take an egg off since for Mac laptop users, it does preclude you from using your second USB port... Not a big fan of retractable flash drives, but this ...

Poor Build Quality

Danny S., Newegg
18 August 2014
  • Summary: So sure this USB is lightning fast, but what good is it when you're unable to use consistently after a few drops?
  • Pros: High speed. Hit up to 198 MB/s read and 106 MB/s write with CrystalMark. 10/10 speeds.
  • Cons: Build quality is bad. I have owned this USB for less than a month and a part inside already broke. I had dropped it a few times from a reasonable desk height, until it finally broke last night. I could hear the little part that came out as I shook the USB. A few things happened, mainly with the l...

136MB Read - 90MB Write

Anonymous, Newegg
16 August 2014
  • Summary: ON USB 2.0 ----------------------- HD Tune Pro: SanDisk Extreme Benchmark Test capacity: full Read transfer rate Transfer Rate Minimum : 32.8 MB/s Transfer Rate Maximum : 33.3 MB/s Transfer Rate Average : 33.3 MB/s Access Time : 0.567 ms Burst Rate : 31.2 MB/s CPU Usage : 7.6% Write transfer rate...
  • Pros: Great Writing speed. Had windows XP booted up in vmware under 15 seconds as oppose to 22 seconds on the HDD even with short stroking. Firmware v3 of this device was recognized as a removable drive, unlike the previous version. When the usb pops out, it makes a clear crisp clicking sound that remi...
  • Cons: Initially, I thought I had purchased the Rolls-Royce of flash drives. The reading speed was no where near as advertised. I was expecting reading speed to be close to 170MB. But 136MB is disappointing. However the writing speed blew me away.

Fast but Fixed Disk

MICHAEL S., Newegg
9 August 2014
  • Summary: I considered sending the drive back but decided to keep it.
  • Pros: Very fast drive that is a bargain when at sale price.
  • Cons: I was hoping the drive would identify as removable. A January 2014 post on the Sandisk forum stated that Sandisk changed back to producing flash drives as removable. I thought that I would likely receive a removable drive so I was disappointed.

windows 7 problem

Rosemarie F., Newegg
20 July 2014
  • Pros: I didn't buy it.
  • Cons: I take this from their forum, reading this made the decision easy: "Have you considered writing to Microsoft and asking them to patch their Windows 7" If you purchase this for a windows 7 pc, you do run some risks...
