Great Flash Drive, Read other reviews with caution

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...
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.
Pros: By far the fastest USB flash drive available in early 2014 for efficiently moving entire directories of numerous files totaling several GB to/from various computers that cannot be networked. Writing small to medium sized files to this drive via USB3 is over 20x faster than typical USB2 drives. Fo...
Cons: Bigger than most and so crowds in vertically stacked USB ports
Summary: Odd. Everything I said in my previous post was correct. However, I decided to reformat the drive again and afterwards all of the S.M.A.R.T. data came up showing 100% (as new) with no retired blocks.
Summary: Accidentally put through wash cycle. After drying, I checked whether the Ubuntu OS I had installed on it was functional. Was relieved when I powered up laptop and Ubuntu was fully operational. I see that the San Disk 16 GB disk is now $4 less. Still, I purchased 3 of these at a great price.
