Even the USB connector is made of plastic and it looks like it could easily break off
Unbiased Review, Amazon
8 July 2014
Summary: This product works but I didn't expect it to be made almost entirely of plastic. Even the USB connector is made of plastic and it looks like it could easily break off. I would have preferred the connector to be made of metal like most USB flash drives. I do not recommend this product.
Summary: Bottom line, these function, however the quality of the plastic and mechanism are marginal. I have an Ativa brand that I have used for years and it shows no wear or distress. If your needs are met with onsite occasional use, these may do, but I would not buy more since I use them often and quality matters.
Summary: This drive is on a list of approved devices for my at-home job. It holds the operating system which I boot into everyday for work. I purchased in 11/26/13 and today, while working, it failed. I can not reburn or format it because it is internally write-protected. I called SanDisk after trouble-shooting through my own tech support center. The SanDisk rep informed me that when this happens, there is no fix for it so it has to be replaced.
Summary: The reviews were pretty glowing on this and I can't figure out why. Ok, it transfers files. Not the swiftest, but that doesn't matter to me. I sit at my desk and when it's done its done. The build however is simply horrible. What is San Disk thinking, making this with an all plastic outer case? This is a breakage just waiting to happen. Cheap, very thin arms swivel (yes, working thin plastic arms. There is an event not long for life).
Summary: I backed up all of a files on the usb and it was put away for about a month while I was working and on vacation. Once I got back and school started, it no longer worked. The computer kept saying the USB needed to be reformatted but it wasn't formattable. When the USB first arrived I was a little disappointed because it was all made of what feels like cheap plastic. This is including the piece that is actually gets inserted into the computer.
Summary: I own quite a few flash drives. The highest I owned before purchasing this one was a which works pretty well, but is pretty hefty in size for a flash drive. I wanted to get a more portable drive with more GB so when best buy listed this as their deal of the day I jumped on it. I gotta say after owning a , I was a little disappointed with this one. The casing is completely made out of plastic as opposed to the Kingston Data traveler which has an aluminum cover.
Summary: I needed 8gb of storage to download grand theft auto 5, so i bought this storage device. It arrived quickly due to prime....but there is only 6.7 gb of free space. Waste of money....now i need to get one with more storage. So if you have a game that requires 8gb do NOT buy this one for you will not have enough storage.
