Cons: I got this thing this summer. Probably haven't even transferred more than 80gb of data onto it since then. Used very lightly (considering the capacity). Plugged it into my computer today and it said it wasn't formatted. Tried to run chkdsk to no avail, tried safely removing and reconnecting a few times, and now it doesn't even work. The blue light flashes for a moment, but no computer recognizes it. It's totally useless.
Summary: This drive worked for 7 months. I initially stored about 16GB of data on it. Months later, I erased it and copied about 55GB of data to it. One week later it was dead. I had a back up copy of the data so I did not freak out over it. I would never buy this drive again.
Excerpt: I ejected the flash drive from my computer, but it must not have registered. When I pulled it out, I received an error message that it wasn't properly ejected. Upon putting the drive back in the USB port, a message box came up saying the drive wasn't formatted. I understand these kinds of things happen, but my issue was with the company's service.
Cons: only after two and half months of school used it went dead neither my pc no my mac computer can find it, also before it went dead some of the file would get corrupted right after been save to the card. what a waste of money.
Summary: The first time use was great but I have been attempting to update data and to open and since there is no recognizable drive or start-up I can't get back into my data. When inserting in USB slot it shows it is activated but it does not show up any where on the directory or even the explore list. Unlike Cruzer or Adata it does not offer any info, data, or assistance/guidance and is definitely not self-starting.
Summary: I have written Transcend "customer support" about 3 different drives of theirs. When you write them for help/replacement/refund, you get a nonsensical email response from an obviously non-English speaker. The English is so poor one cannot understand the return email from them and I suspect they can't understand my original email to them either. After a few back and forth emails getting nothing but wasting a lot of time, I gave up.
