Good cheap flash drive

  • Summary: Good cheap flash drive. Port is kind of flimsy but for the price that I got it for, I can't complain.

  • 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.

  • Summary: Fast read times for me. Can't seem to get it to retract, but maybe I'm afraid I'll break it.

Fast reads, slow writes

Terran M., Newegg
22 August 2014
  • Summary: One of the lowest prices on 64GB USB drives, at least at the time I got it. Overall good value for low-write, high-read workloads. I would not recommend for a write-heavy workload.
  • Pros: 15 MB/sec reads. Physically robust. It's the slide kind with no cover to lose.

  • Cons: Actual capacity only 57 GB. Very slow writes. Less than 1 MB/sec sustained write throughput.

Good Product

Adam A., Newegg
22 July 2014
  • Summary: I definitely recommend it for a budget purchase.
  • Pros: You get what you purchase and for this purchase, a great price. Good transfer rates, not great. Great storage space. Hasn't failed on me. Outer shell is of OK quality. Wouldn't purposefully put it through the washing machine or under a car tire. The sliding mechanism to extract the USB input is n...
  • Cons: Transfer rates leave something to be desired of course, as well as the protective casing.

Good!

  • Summary: Works well. I'd only get USB 3.0 from now on due to greater speed (only if you have 3.0 port).
