Summary: Great for my purpose, which is to use with my New Dell XPS 8700. I used Dell's tool that made me a bootable backup with all the needed drivers and apps that came on system in the case of a emergency. I now have a reliable safety net, along with a full backup to an external drive.
Summary: I like this scandisk. I bought it becuz my computer is slow and needed to create a windows 8.1 installer media and I did not regret this. My computer has been restored and everything is backed up on this drive. It is a good price but it took like almost 2 weeks to get to me in the mail but after all I still got it and I like it.
Summary: I bought two of these, to use on my husband's laptop and my netbook. My netbook is Windows 7 Starter and the flash drive backed it up easily. The laptop runs Windows 8, so I knew this flash drive's auto backup wasn't an option and I could've bought a "normal" 64 GB one but these were on sale for a comparable price.and the laptop's scheduled backups run without a problem.
Summary: Used this extensively for a couple of months without any issues. I don't use it for a 'back-up' drive as such, just to store and play large video files. It works fine with Windows 7 and three different brands of 'smart' TVs. Haven't used the encryption feature so can't talk to that. Great price & warranty.
Summary: To use the "encryption" option with the backup software, you have to log into the program each time you want to run it. Kind of inconvenient for a device that is supposed to make things more convenient. Also the software is not very polished, so it gets confusing when you try to use it (poor user interface). Also, the button that initiates the backup is not very tactile. Hard to tell when you are pressing it.
Summary: The 64 GB USB Flash Drive met my expectations. I bought it to load some movies on that I could take with me to my ranch where I don't have Internet connection. I haven't yet tried it on my 50" tv/blue ray at the ranch but have tried it on my 70" at home through my smart blue ray player, Works great! Sometimes it's just a bit slow on my PC but I guess that's to be expected with a 64 GB flash drive.
