It's as cheap as you expect it is

Excerpt: This is one of the cheapest USB 3 sticks out there. I guess you get what you pay for. The first time I tried to plug it in to my MacBook Pro I couldn't because the USB head kept sliding back in to it's shell like a turtle head. It was extremely frustrating and I was going to send it back. However, I did learn how to keep the USB head locked out while plugging in. So I think I'm going to keep it. Still... you've been warned.
Cons: I went through two of these devices so I was certain I didn't receive a dud, but I'd find myself rebooting the machine at random as any USB port I'd stuck the drive into would suddenly cease working.
Summary: I bought this flash drive to back up my work files: it's fine for long-term storage, but it is much too slow for everyday use and synching files with the hard drive. At first I thought it was not functioning at all... It took 17 minutes to transfer a folder approx. 1 GB in size. The 8GB version of the Cruzer drive worked much faster. Reading the reviews, I see now that this is a common complaint about the 32GB plus Cruzer flash drives.
Summary: I got this to replace a 8 GB SanDisk model. They repositioned the key ring anchor (a little metal bar) in such a way that you can't actually attach a key ring (12-year-old engineer, undoubtedly). After messing with it for an hour (trying different size key rings, cutting a notch in the drive and bending the tip of a key ring so I could try angling it in), I gave up. My work-around was to thread a metal guitar "B" string through the opening. Even doing that wasn't easy.
Summary: Die Schreibcache Einstellung in den Entfernungsrichtlinien lässt sich bei diesem Gerät nicht auf Standard("Schnelles Entfernen") setzen. Das führt dazu, dass man jedes mal über "Hardware sicher entfernen" den Stick umständlich auswerfen muss oder man hat sicher einen Datenverlust.. Bei keinem meiner bisherigen USB Sticks war das notwendig. Ansonsten sitzt man z.B.
Summary: Wenn man bedenkt das der Stick nicht gerade billig ist könnte man eine gute bis sehr gute Verarbeitung erwarten... dem ist aber überhaupt nicht so . Ein Plastikbomber sondergleichen absolut billig hergestellt. Von der leistung ist er ok . Ich schicke in zurück ist nicht zu empfehlen.
