Summary: I have had this USB drive for quite some time, and this is the first time I thought to do a real world test.
Pros: Cheap - that's about it.
Cons: Write speed is very slow. I extracted a ZIP file to this and noticed it was rather slow. I connected a Sandisk to the other front USB port and started the extraction process to it, when the SP was 44% complete. What amazed me is that the Sandisk still finished first, and it was another 2 minutes ...
Summary: I got duped into buying this with an impulse offer I apparently found irresistible. For the cost it wasn't worth the hassle to return. The life cycle of this product must be nearing with the proliferation of USB 3.0.
Pros: it's shinny
Cons: works intermittently, rejects files that are half the size of the drive, will show a copying state and then just hang. Do yourself a favor and get the USB 3.0 version of this stick for another 5 bucks. The USB 3.0 version works like a champ. For the cost it wasn't worth the hassle to return.
