Summary: I've only been using this flashdrive for 2 and 1/2 weeks. It erased all my data, including the warranty registration and images that were pre-installed on the drive. I can no longer save, copy, or transfer any files to the flashdrive. When I try to place files on the flashdrive, I receive an error message that says “this file can no longer be found on your computer.” Sometimes, my computer doesn't recognize the flashdrive.
Summary: It worked perfectly just after received. Some weeks later it started corrupting files while transferring from the USB to other places. Later files couldn't be retrieved at all. I'm afraid it will stop working completely very soon.
Worst POS I've ever bought. Not USB 3.0 compatible.

Summary: I managed to use this device 4 times before it crapped out. The device NEVER worked in any USB 3.0 port only in USB 2.0 ports, it was also very slow even for USB 2.0. I just suddenly lost all the data on it, I tried reformatting the device, but afterwards I ran testing software and EVERY SINGLE SECTOR is bad and reporting errors. Don't trust this crap company, the money was negligible, I'm extremely upset about the data loss as I've lost <20 hours of work because of it.
Summary: When it worked, it was a fine little USB flash drive. But after 9 months the Silicon Power Marvel M50 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive died. It was only used sparingly to move files from one computer to another in a location that has spotty network wireless. First the flash drive flickered on the desktop. After removal and re-insertion it wouldn't mount again. Tried a different flash drive in the same port and that one worked. Took the bad drive to another computer.
Summary: Tried it in 3 different USB 3.0 computers, i asked them to change advertisement and they didn't thus this review. Other than the speed sometimes when you plug it it doesn't get recognized (you need to insert it a little bit less)
Summary: I could only get 7.7MB / sec writes on USB3 despite the 20MB rating, and other reviews showing even higher speeds. The TRUTH is you can't get that fast. I strongly suspect the other reviewers are manufacturer shills. I bought this flash drive based on these other reviews that claimed higher speeds. My patriot flash drive running the same test has 75MB writes - 10 times the performance of this flash drive. Bleh.
Summary: Worked maybe twice. Now I insert it and the drive shows up but it says "no disk inserted". Same issue on two computers with two different operating systems. And of course I did put some data on it (nothing critical) so I can't send it back if I can't wipe it.
