These are fine, but there's probably better ones out there

Summary: I like the USB 3.0 speed. I don't like the little cap that comes off and disappears within seconds of opening the package. The color-changing decal on the side is amusing for the first five minutes, but beyond that, has no utility.
the blue or green helios seem to have held up the best,

Summary: I have had more trouble with this brand than others; what I do not know is whether the product I purchased here on amazon was already discounted due to refurbish/damage/returns. I had over 12 of this. To be fair, the blue or green helios seem to have held up the best.
What you need to know. Big files fast, little files slow.

Summary: Pros; 1) It is a fast as they say, if you're using large files. 2) Price point is very good. Mentions: 1) Unlike other reviewers I don't find it that large, I don't know it's not micro but it's not huge, smaller that my Lexar and Corsair Voyager . 2) No place to put the cap when in use.
Summary: First of all my dad uses some of these, I personally never had an issue. However 2 of the ones I gave him broke, both stopped being read in the system. I assume some sort of issue inherent in the devices themselves. I do think these are fast and good but they seem to fail after a year or so.
Summary: For a USB 3.0 flash drive, I thought it would be as fast as my SSD hard drive or at least I could copy from and to it very fast. It turned to be faster than my old USB 2.0 but not as I expected.
Summary: Advertised speed values lie. Beware of bogus transfer speed numbers listed for this. Maybe the thing has to be warm to achieve its rated speed thus the color changing case art?
Pros: Changes color when warm. Whoa.
Cons: I showed this to my buddy at work. Plugged into a USB 3.0 port (blue connector) and got 8mb/sec transfer. My buddy says "Thats nothing" and whips out some no-name flash drive which yielded 20+mb/sec moving the same files. Embarassing.
