Summary: Lives up to the speed claims, which few flash drives do in my experience. Nice to have storage where copying files from my NAS (gigabit Ethernet, ~112MB/s) has become the limiting factor. I searched for a while to find a drive that wasn't obnoxiously large, too many of the high performance models have unnecessarily chunky cases, these don't block adjacent USB ports either beside or above the one they're plugged into.
Summary: I think this Flash Drive is perfect. I believe that it is as fast as USB 3.0 will allow and I ran a couple of surface tests and it found no errors. Yes, I know that it is not really a surface test. I made it a bootable Acronis recovery disk with an encrypted image on it so finding errors was important.
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: USB 3.0 devices, especially where we use them on Apple products, are somewhat pricey. Not easy to come by in our part of the world. This product is everything the various technical reviews on it is. It's also well finished off. Really a product to be proud of to "flash" in company of fellow users. Thank you Transcend - it's a real joy to stream even a QT movie off it. Music in your pocket is just another big bonus. Way to go!
