Very fragile; bad design

Dan, Amazon
13 January 2011
  • Summary: I have many flash drives with the same slide in and out design, and all but this one work perfectly. You have to hold the piece out and hope that while you insert it, it doesn't slide back in. If it weren't 8GB I would throw it away. (it would be wasteful)

Cheap Build Quality

George P., Newegg
27 August 2009
  • Summary: I still like a retractable flash drive so I'm going back to a SanDisk Cruzer - it's worth the extra 10 bucks.
  • Pros: Price, capacity
  • Cons: Plastic housing had to be super glued after 2 months. Locking mechanism does not hold when inserting it into a USB port.

Died after 9 months

Timothy L., Newegg
3 February 2009
  • Summary: Probably wouldn't buy another transcend unless it is faster.
  • Pros: Decent when it worked. I like the sliding mechanism
  • Cons: Pretty slow especially when copying multiple files. I have requested and RMA on this product as it has died on me after less than a year. System detects the drive but says it is unformatted. Won't reformat no matter I do. Lost all my data

Kinda Cheap, Really

Anonymous, Newegg
15 January 2009
  • Summary: I like the look, and the drive performs well, but the quality of the case is such a disappointment that I'm considering cracking it open and putting the chip in a different case.
  • Pros: It's fast, and it comes with a lanyard
  • Cons: The build quality of the case is very poor. The card does not remain retracted; it slides out about halfway. Kinda feels like having my fly open. The slider that carries the PCBboard fits very loosely in the case and rattles.

Not Impressed

James P., Newegg
14 January 2009
  • Summary: I am upgrading from a Sandisk 8GB and was trying to transfer the data from it to this one but I was only able to get about 3GB on it before getting an error message about the drive being write protected but the drive has no write protect switch.
  • Pros: 16GB capacity, Speeds are not bad.
  • Cons: Does not work straight out of the box, quality is severely lacking

Not the greatest connection

Trista C., Newegg
24 December 2008
  • Summary: I don't feel comfortable using this memory stick since the connection does tend to be flaky and I want something more sturdy and reliable.
  • Pros: This memory stick is very speedy for transferring data and is a wonderful addition to my backup mediums.
  • Cons: Poor connection to the computer. If it is bumped a little, it disconnects from the computer and then re-connects a second later. It's kinda scary if this happens in the middle of the transfer as it can corrupt everything. BE CAREFUL with this one! It also feels a little flimsy, like it could fall...

You get what you pay for

Derek S., Newegg
23 December 2008
  • Summary: Considering its main use was as a persistent Fedora Live boot, I suppose its within the realm of possibility that particular sections reached their write limits, but I find this hard to believe.
  • Pros: Compact design--the retractable design is something I will expect in a solid state drive from now on. I was literally blown away by the cost for 8 GB.
  • Cons: No issue for several months--now the device has stopped functioning entirely. I will not be shopping bottom of the price spectrum for a flash drive again!

VERY SLOW

Supporting Role, Amazon
20 October 2008
  • Summary: This USB flash drive may be cheap, but it is also very slow, especially for one so big. If you need to carry an incredible amount of data with you that you hardly ever access and almost never change, then this might be for you.

why have space you can't use

Anonymous, Newegg
16 September 2008
  • Summary: exceedingly light, and cheap feeling. since I bought it for transferring large individual files to systems with out network connectivity, it's useless for me. am still waiting for reply from transcend support
  • Pros: retractable usb, 8gb space, reasonable speed
  • Cons: while I can use the whole area of this drive, it will not accept individual files 4.0gb in size or larger (no dvd content transfering). Also, the slide to lock the port out, does not also lock it in, it will slide out at the most inopportune time.

Big and Slow

Joseph P., Newegg
16 July 2008
  • Summary: Frankly, I'd avoid it. I'm just waiting for a good sale to buy something else.
  • Pros: It's 8 GB for a good price.
  • Cons: It's SLOW. And I mean brutally slow. It takes more than twice the time to transfer both large and small files as compared to Kingston run-of-the-mill Data Traveller line.
