Summary: For the most part this has been a great flash drive. I have had no problems with it as it relates to it mounting but this drive is rated as 3.0 compatible. I tested it in a couple USB 3.0 computer ports to see weather the problem was my computer or not and in both cases I got the message that it could perform faster. I also had a 3.0 hard drive and decided to test that just in case the problem was my USB port and not the hardware.
managed to put a full linux Mint distro on it and it worked and ran perfectly (as good as a HDD install)

Summary: amazingly fast. managed to put a full linux Mint distro on it and it worked and ran perfectly (as good as a HDD install).Except that there were linux driver incompatibilities with my laptop I intended to use it for (wifi etc) so in the end i got rid of the linux install, and now just use it for transfering data at crazy speeds between computers. Disappointed about the linux thing not working out, but not at all disappointed with the product.
Excerpt: Good for secondary storage or as an archive for documents that I don't want to store in Dropbox. I carry it around attached to my key chain. I would say that my only complain is the physical size - the drive is pretty large and competes with my car remote in bulkiness.
Summary: I had purchased this USB drive for my wife to do select backups of a fairly large number of files. I was specifically looking for USB 3.0 since we had 'the need for speed' and we wanted to take advantage of the USB 3.0 connections on her computer. When the drive arrived in the mail, she promptly unpacked it and put it to work, I didn't ask her any questions since she had experience with previous USB drives.
Excerpt: I've only had this product for a few days but over a USB 3.0 port this is the fastest flash drive I've ever used. I haven't compared its performance over a 2.0 port yet. It is the non-removable version of the drive, meaning that Windows will allow you to split it up into multiple partitions. That having been said, I have been unsuccessful in getting it to boot via DOS or Windows PE/RE. It seems others have had that problem with this drive as well.
Summary: I was looking to upgrade from my SanDisk 8 GB USB stick that I had purchased several years ago, and was amazed at how much these devices have fallen in price yet risen in capacity. The SanDisk Extreme 64 GB fit my needs perfectly. On Mac OS X 10.8 (Lion) I've been getting transfer speeds in excess of 30 MB/s (a 1 GB file takes 35 seconds to transfer), but that is only on a USB2 connection.
