Summary: This flash drive gets super hot within minutes of plugging it to my computer to the point I can barely touch it by the time I want to unplug it. I'm not even using half of its storage capacity yet, but anyways I don't think that's normal. Maybe I got a defective unit.
Summary: product does not comply with specifications 32GB = Read 90 MBs/ Write 60 MBs i visited vendor http://silicon-power.com/product/product_detail.php?currlang=utf8&main=10&sub=73&pro=205&type=fe#a_1 the information is 32GB = Read 90 MBs/ Write 40 MBs, after installing the proper drivers a maximum of 18 mb writed data on usb 3.0 (intel i7 haswell,3gb nvidia geforce, 16mb ram, z77 mb 250 ssd ) now i have to buy another one, with all the amount i could have got a very good one.
Summary: The cap falls off. I could have sent it back, but it works properly electrically. I just expected it would be better than all of the other USB drives I have which lose their covers about 2 days after you get it. Fell off somewhere. Seriously people, do you need to bring real engineers back out of retirement to show you how to make products that actually can be used? This country is really falling apart if we can't make a plastic cap that will stay on a usb connector.....

Summary: One is recognized by any PC I plug it in to withing 5 seconds. The other, took an average of 57 seconds. I tried reformatting it, no change. Returned it. Update 4/30/2014. I ordered a replacement. It is very flaky on my PC. It will either eventually work after a minute. Never work, or it will tell me I need to format it. I have 2 external hard drives, an android phone, and another USB drive I plug into the same port and all work 100% of the time.

Summary: It's a quirky flash drive, at best. When I tried a number of times to format it for NTFS (Windows 7/64), I ended up with a "Windows failed to format this drive" message. I wrote their tech support, who responded with instructions on how to do so, but still got the same woeful results upon formatting to NTFS. I'll return it and get a a better flash drive that can format any which way I want.
Summary: To be honest I am a little disappointed. I got this to speed up movie transfers when taking them off my HDD to watch on my WD TV Media Player. I was using a run of the mill USB2.0 16gb drive I got for free at staples. Speeds averaged about 10mbit/s read and 4mbit/s write. You can say it took me a while to put a 2.5gb movie on there....
Summary: It just died after a few uses. I had back up on it. Fortunate that I have backup on Kingston drive also. It worked very well until it died, Perhaps the company may replace it. I would give it 5 stars if it did not die.
