Misrepresentation on full functionality

Summary: While this product as a USB works fine, the company totally mis-represents the functionality as they say it supports Password Protection functionality but NEVER, ANYWHERE do they admit that that functionality is for Windows PCs only. IT DOES NOT WORK ON MAC computers but they chose NOT to admit that so Mac users are totally mislead. Nor do they mention the lack of Mac support on their OWN website. False advertising. Go with Sandisk Extreme.
Summary: This is the second Verbatim Store 'n' Go V# 16 GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive that has become unrecognized by my PC. Each was about 6 months old and demonstrated no problems up until the total failure. Since the PC does not recognize the drive, my IT support says there is nothing that can be done. Verbatim itself today referred me to a recovery service company that quoted a range for Economy Service: $342-1198 for recovery!
Excerpt: I receive an error message when I try using it with my USB 3 port. Other USB 3 devices work including a Passport external hard drive. It does work with a USB 2 port but so do other flash drives which cost much less.
Summary: This 3.0 usb transfered a 13 GB file in over 24 hours. A 2.0 emtec was 8 hours and a thunderbolt buffalo drive 6 minutes on brand new MacBook Pro i7. I suspect that the Mac does not support the drive. I wish I could return it.
