Summary: Advertised as 4GB, but when plugged into drive only has actually 3.72GB. Just too small for my project. Had to buy a Sandisk USB flash drive to do it. All Verbatim drives in package had sloppy connectivity to computer USB jack, have to wiggle them around to make contact. The same on three different computers. Sandisk replacement was nice and tight.
Summary: Was not happy with purchase. Ordered this item in three colors and did not see the small note added in the bill that said all blue would be shipped. I know my bad for not reading that but never in a million figured they would advertise one thing and sell another. Customer service, however, was very pleasant and said they would give full refund.....but what a pain from something as simple as this....To me this just speaks to the business practice.
Summary: I love these individual drives. I teach college classes and the data for each class could easily get confusing. I decided to save information for each class on its own drive. Now I just label the drive and hook it to the folder that I use for the class. I like the different colors because they make it easy to identify the type of class I am teaching.

Summary: I have always used Verbatim storage products in the past and found them to be always the best. I strayed a few times to other products as they were on sale, but sadly didn't perform like Verbatim products had. I soon realized that there was only one product to trust and that's Verbatim. This is my personal conviction and I will stick to it! TY Verbatim for your fine products. Oh-BTW-I've been using these Drives with NO problems whatsoever!
Summary: Sadly disappointed in these flash drives. As others have commented, they're painfully slow. Also not suitable for use as bootable media. Something about the device geometry is just not right, even when using dd to transfer an iso image that works on other, better quality, media (e.g. Kingston DataTraveller). I was hoping to use these to replace my boot CDs for various operating systems, USB sticks don't scratch and they're a lot more compact than discs.
