Summary: Besides the obvious such as speed and lightness, the overall goal of the flash drive should be to make them less than half a foot long. My "Lacie 2.0 flash drive" by comparison, was shorter than everything else on my keychain (car, house, membership cards). This thing is a monstrosity.
Summary: Can not format the drive to NTFS using various utilities, methods (command line) and Disk Management tricks. The drive can only be format to Fat32 or exFAT. Otherwise the drive is fast 201MBps read and 90MBps write sequential.
SP M60 Silver 64 GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive not as fast as claimed
26 August 2013
Summary: Used to download 11.6 GB of files from PC hard drive to Flash Drive via USB 3.0 port in approx 6 minutes for an average write speed of 32 MB/s. This is less than half of the claimed 85 MB/s write speed for USB 3.0.
Summary: I got this drive to use in my computer, Netgear router, and Samsung Smart TV. In my computer, it is a very fast drive and works very good in my computer but I found that my computer is the only place I can use it. The default file system on it is exFat and it will not format to NTFS.

Summary: You're taking a risk buying this flash drive with it's inconsistant read/write speeds and dodgy USB 3.0 functionality. Unfortunately my flash drive doesn't work on any USB 3.0 slot within any machine I plug it into...very disappointing since that was the ONLY reason i wanted this.
Pros: Affordably high amount of storage capacity with USB 3.0 speeds.
Cons: USB 3.0 doesn't work for me, rendering the whole appeal of this drive rather hollow.
Summary: On screen, I liked the look of this drive and it's specifications. In reality it is made of plastic and feels flimsy. On the plus side, without checking detailed performance figures, I have noticed a huge increase in performance from my USB 2.0 drives. BUT...
