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...
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.
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?
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.
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.
