Drive OK but Interfers with other USBs

Excerpt: When connected, the USB device in the next USB recepticle doesn't work properly. If you move that non functioning device to the other side of the computer, it works fine. Not a great situation but workable. The speed is OK, not great. If you use an extension cable to separate the flash drive from the computer it helps the interference problem but slows down the flash drive.
Summary: Worked really well at first, very fast, but as data gets added then more data is being put on storage device it slows down to a crawl on data transfers and that is at only 10% capacity, not the data transfer speeds I expected. Could have bought a slower rated USB device at less then half the price.
Blazxing fast, but nonstandard hardware. Cannot use as bootable drive

Summary: PROS: USB 3.0 throughput is fast as promised... REALLY fast. For general file storage, this drive is fantastic and worth every penny. Has a lanyard hole large enough for a keychain. Slick retractaing mechanism eliminates need for a cap. CONS: Mounts as a "fixed" drive, rather than a "removable" drive. Boot sector is not accessible, and you CANNOT configure this as a bootable device (which was the primary reason I bought it).
Summary: zip files read and write at sustained speeds of 80mb/s using USB 3.0 express card. USB2.0 sustained read\write at 30\22mb/s. I have not used this device in a newer machine with a true USB 3.0 connection. For the sake of comparison I only achieved sustained write speeds of 5mb/s with a USB 2.0 corsair voyager mini with the same express card adapter.
Summary: Performs fine in USB 3.0. I put a key ring through the slot on the end and clipped it with a D-ring into my backpack. A few days later, the ring was alone on the clip and the stick was laying in the bottom of the bag. The plastic fractured at the end.
Summary: I purchased this USB Stick in March. My first impression was that the USB Stick was a bit flimsy. When I would eject the USB part it would make a crackling noise and did not feel sturdy. I was very impressed with the speed though. I own a HP-G62 and the HP did not recognize the USB Stick in the USB 3.0 Port. I also tried using the Stick on older computers at school for projects and it wouldn't recognize it either, it just told me to format it.
Summary: I am not going to make this a long review because the one I wrote yesterday still isn't published. Sufficit to say: check the Sandisk user forums as there are a lot of bad reviews. For one - it locks computers up. And it is formated with FAT32! You will have to reformat it once you get it. But working with Sandisk they could not get mine reformated anmd told me to take it back to the store.
Summary: Sandisk has always, ALWAYS been one of my favorite USB/Flash product makers up until about three years ago. But before I get into the review of this particular product, let me take you back a few years. Approximately four or five years ago, Sandisk was just beginning their journey to flash drive market dominance.
Nothing special but the capacity at an excellent price

Summary: I spent a few minutes looking for the button advertized in the "back up with the push of a single button" ads. I was not successful. But no problem, it will still suffice very nicely for backup via 7-zip (or tar|gzip while running CygWin). I was not interested in the secure access software but, curious about the "club_application" I tried to find info on the device about this arcana. No manual that I can find.
