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.
Update - One of the worst flash drives I've ever had

Summary: How could they have made a plug that doesn't fit right in all ports, and then make a lanyard hole that vanishes into the body when the slider is pushed in? Somebody wasn't paying attention.
Pros: No cap to lose. Read speed is good, write seems slow but may be enough for some users.
Cons: Some clarifications: 1. Not detected in some USB 2.0 ports - looks like its plug length is slightly off, seems to lack about a millimeter of going into some ports far enough to always make contact. Then if wiggled sometimes it connects, sometimes not. This is the only USB piece I've found with this problem. 2. No practical lanyard hole - the small hole is on the slider and disappears into the body when pushed in, so this drive has to be removed from a key ring or lany...
Summary: I'm amazed that Verbatim would put out such a poor product.
Cons: Really rates as no stars, or negative stars if there were such. This stick seldom works in my USB 2.0 ports (usually not detected), it only runs consistently in USB 3 ports, and is very slow to write to there. Slider does not hold well, pops part way back when drive pushed securely into a port. No activity light, and no hole for a lanyard or key ring.
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.
