Excerpt: I am using two of these for a photography class that uses both RAW and JPEG files and they are pretty fast. They have a neat look to them and I like the metal around the edges. Seems like it will make them more sturdy. I would definitely purchase again if I need another.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast, High Capacity, Portable, Reliable
Excerpt: I teach in a media production program. We go through a lot of flash drives over the course of a year. This has proven a very reliable drive. Also very fast, taking good advantage of the USB 3.0 throughput. Housing is also very robust and holds up well to frequent student use/abuse.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, High Capacity, Portable, Reliable
Summary: I really love this drive. I manly use to for pictures and movies on my macbook pro retina. In reality i'm getting about 100MBs write speeds for 4+ GB movies but i'm very satisfied overall. Its a great addition for any laptop for that extra 64 BG of storage. It doesnt sound like much but 256 GB that's comes with the basic MB pro ret. fills up FAST. So having this around to transfer files to my Desktop has been amazing.
Summary: Excellent performance from this USB 3.0 Drive- I save a lot of data from my hard drive on this puppy, & keep it in my pocket for safe keeping! The top stays on & I am pleased with this purchase.
Summary: The drive is indeed speedy. However, the highest of the maximum speeds measured by 3 benchmark tools on 2 Core I7 computers are significantly lower than the advertised speeds. Average read and write speeds are much lower. In contrast, other brand drives exceed their respective claims. Also, this drive uses MLC (look it up), which is not reliable.
Summary: Very happy with purchase! Transcend is the best most reliable USB flash drive I have bought to date. Sandisk's 64GB USB flash drive is just too power hungry and drops off line. Great sales service and pricing as well.
