Summary: this is the single worst piece of equipment I've bought in my 24 years of computer usage My first one would give a "corrupt data' message or "unable to read' which cost me 23 gb of backup and a few files for transfer. I wrote a bad review months after buying it (had no reason to check the drive as it was only for backup and not removed from computer) until i had the transfer files on it of course when i bought it the drive was both expensive and pretty much state of the...
Excerpt: I purchased two of these drives from B&H. I used the first one less than 5 times and it failed, losing all data at a meeting, very embarrassing. The second one failed in a similar fashion, hardly used it at all. What junk. Far too late to return them. Avoid TRANSCEND products like the plague.
Summary: Died after a few minutes of use. Accepted a formatting. Then tried to add a partition and the drive became unusable. Attempts to initialize and reformat failed on both PC and Macs with all utilities we tried. I have never had a failed USB of any kind so this was shocking. Back it went.
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.
Summary: I should have read the reviews. Instead, I bought two of these flash drives on the basis of price and BOTH were non-functioning right out of the box. I hope Transcend's warranty return center is better run than their quality control department. (And no, I won't be buying their products again - complete junk!
Summary: this item did not live up to what it was advertised. it worked as well as an old chip. will not work for long on Sony blueray player write speed 15mbs read spead was 4 to 9 mbs not good for HD
Summary: It lasted 15 months with very little use before it failed completely, lost all my data so I wasnt impressed. Opened it up and it has Samsung Memory chips, so my advice is to stay clear of transcend and samsung products and avoid all manaufacturers that use samsung memory chips. Kingston is still the best option for USB Flash drives and Sandisk for microsdhc cards.
Summary: The file transfer speed is lower than my Patriot 16 GB USB 2.0 flash drive. It is not always recognized by USB 2.0 ports. Other USB 3.0 Flash Drives perform near rated speed on my system. Transcend has an online tool to recover data and repair flash drives and I ran that tool on this drive. I tried different formats, FAT32, exFAT, and NTFS and all were the same. I suspect that this was a defective drive and may not represent all of this model.
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.
