Summary: Bought on July 4, 2014, but hardly ever used. Used a few times recently and it failed. Windows will not recognize it on two computers. When it worked was not too fast. I tried doing a RMA on manufacturer's site.
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...
Summary: Uploaded a ton of songs to this device and used it in my car stereo for a couple of days. After I took it out to add more songs it came up on the computer as being empty. What gives? I put it back in my car stereo and it played. However, it started to cut off in the middle of songs.
Summary: WRONG IMAGE. Drive is a stupid "cool" slanted shape, NOT square corners as illustrated. This is not just aesthetically annoying, but also wastes space (creating extra dead space in drive) and makes cap less secure (cap holds on less surface due to slant). Sent it back.
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.

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.

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...
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.
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.
