Summary: I used this flash drive to back up data maybe about 10 times over a 10 month period. Suddenly the computer (multiple computers) could find no data on the flash drive......just disappeared. "You need to format the disk before you can use it" error message appeared. Even after reformatting (and loss of all data that was supposed to be on the drive) the same problem occurred....
Stopped working on my Mac after I plugged it into a Windows computer (even without formatting)
27 November 2013
Summary: I really like the design of this thing and have received many compliments on it. However, it started acting after I used it in a Windows computer a couple of times (without re-formatting or otherwise doing anything like that). Now, when I plug it into my Mac, it won't recognize it anymore. I had to use my husband's Windows computer to move the files to another flash drive. Before that, I was very pleased with everything.
Summary: I have been using it for all this time. I have no issue with it. It is a very good product, fast and fits to my needs. Update 12/28/13: I changed my rating from previous 5 stars to 2 stars. After 8 months of moderate using, the USB flash drive suddenly stopped working. Format did no good. Fortunately I had kept a backup copy for all data. Amazon provided the best customer services ever. Without any questions asked Amazon refunded the purchase in full.
Summary: There weren't many negative reviews about this drive when I got it, but I saw sad stories for most 32-64 GB flash drive models. I wanted this one and my chances didn't look too bad. The first one worked for 1/2 a day before I started getting error messages and suggestions to format the drive. 3 computers each produced a similar result and 1 didn't recognize it at all. I attempted reformatting it when all-else failed.
Summary: The price is great for the amount of memory.. and it worked beautifully for a couple months but then it just stopped working... I'm not sure what happened but I use USBs all the time for school and this is the first time I've had one go out so fast. Maybe I had a faulty one.. who knows...
Summary: I like to keep a few USBs around the house and I buy them of different sizes and brands and this one works just as good as all the others. At 16GB write speed really doesn't matter so it does turn out to be of use. It also have some good style too it. ALSO! It has been thru a wash and dry twice and still works!
Summary: It looks tough and durable but it isn't. The top part where it attaches to the key chain snapped off--then it managed to fall out of my pocket. My entire hard drive is backed up on it and now anyone who finds it has all of my stuff. I am not happy AT ALL. Note that I am left with a perfectly good key chain which is not damaged at all--which means it is the actual flash-drive that broke not the chain. Note that the flash drive itself worked fine.
