Summary: I bought the Hi Speed USB flash drive cause I thought it was high speed since the name said that.Instead it was very slow and took 1/2 hour to add files to it. I had to return it and bought a Corsair 8 GB USB 2.0 The specs. are: Write 34 MB/s Read 28 MB/s for about double the price but it is probably 4 X's faster.
Summary: Of course the drive has large capacity. But it is the SLOWEST USB 2.0 flash drive I have ever used. It took over 2 hours to transfer 4 GB of small photo files from my hard drive to the JetFlash, with no other applications running in the computer
Summary: I purchased one of these in April 2007 to replace my SanDisk 4GB U3 Cruzer that would not work with Vista. While the Transcend 8GB JetFlash V10 does work with Vista, it writes exceedingly slowly. I benchmarked the two Flash drives and came up with the following (Cruzer followed by V10): Small File (1mb) Write: 2.391 - 6.532 seconds Small File (1mb) Read: 0.672 - 0.938 seconds Large File (10mb) Write: 17.656 - 22.594 seconds Large File (10mb) Read: 6.813 - 6.281 seconds...
Summary: I purchased one of these about a year ago. The price for an 8MB Flash Drive looked like a fantastic deal at that time. The cliche "You get what you pay for" now comes to mind. I have owned at least six different USB drives over the last three years and this is by FAR the slowest of any of these many times over. 8MB is a lot of storage, but it takes FOREVER to write large files to this drive.
Summary: I bought this drive about a year ago, and like with most people here, it worked fine until it suddenly REALLY DIDN'T WORK AT ALL. I use a Mac, and while this has never been a problem before, suddenly the drive won't mount. I've tried data recovery programs, reformatting programs, and FORGET Transcend, because they ONLY cater to Windows OS. My boyfriend is on a mission to fix it, using both our Macs and his PC, but still to no avail. I've given up.
Summary: After about a year of very light use - storing presentations and some tunes - about 75% full, drive has decided it is "read only". Tough to tweak presentations, but I suppose I can always tranfer data away. I'm a relative Luddite so these things need to be stable and simple. So far my Data Traveler 32 is okay (but some of it's review have me worried.

Summary: DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT! LOOK ELSEWHERE!!! When I purchased this product, it was inexpensive and had positive reviews. I should say that I was satisfied with the product until it died on me recently. It locked up for no apparent reason (there is no lock switch), and the company's website has a software to correct the problem and possibly recover data (although the only working option may be 'erase all data'.
Summary: The bad reviews of the Transcend TS16GJFV10 JetFlash V10 USB 2.0 16GB Flash Drive are all right on the money. On opening this I was surprised to see how flimsy the drive was -- the plastic case flexed easily between thumb and forefinger, and because the case was see through I could see that all the chips and internal electronics were beneath without any further protection.
Summary: Just after the returnability this thing died -- nothing could even see it as a valid 'drive' -- the computer recognized it as a usb thumb drive; but couldn't format it; view it; use low level tools to see it -- tried with windows, mac, & linux -- nothing could see it or the data on it. It was always ejected properly and was used in 'read only' mode (iow: I wrote a bunch of data files to it initially; then only copied the files off ....
