Lifetime Warranty?

John "Len", Amazon
22 June 2014
  • 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.....

Flawed flash drive

Yorgo "It's all about music, books & flicks", Amazon
11 November 2013
  • 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.

Not Quite as Fast as Expected

emjlr3, Amazon
4 November 2013
  • 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....

return

Richard Lieber "old man", Amazon
9 October 2013
  • 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.

Didn't Work as expected.

Corky, Amazon
25 July 2013
  • Summary: I thought I could use this to back-up my files on windows 8 but my HP computer didn't seem to want to recognize it as a drive! Maybe I don't know what I'm doing with Windows 8.....

not great

John N., Newegg
29 August 2012
  • Summary: Not a terrible deal overall considering cost per GB, but don't buy it for speed.
  • Pros: Cheap as shell-shocker deal. (Almost) 16GB.
  • Cons: VERY slow--write speed under 7MB/sec, read around 22 MB/sec. Nowhere close to even USB 2.0 speeds or the (admittedly modest) speeds advertised on the product page. Smaller than advertised. Even using the disk manufacturers' 1GB=1000000000 bytes, it's only 15.5 GB. (And yes, formatted capacity is even less, especially using most computers' 1GB=2^30 bytes, but that's a sad fact of life.)

User Review

David G., Newegg
26 August 2012
  • Pros: Cost
  • Cons: Only 14.4G of usable memory; Slow - no where near the 80MBps advertised - only gets to 45MBps with CrystalDiskMark. Win7 thought there was disc errors on the drive when I first installed - then second and third times I had to reformat it. I don't know if I'm going to just return it or take a chance with a replacement.
