Strengths of the product

Cheap, capless Seems to connect successfully more often than some other drive

Weaknesses of the product

Slow writes

Additional Comments

Because it's cheap it's still decent value. It's spec'd to only write at 10mb/s. Reads are better @ 40 mb/s,

Decent drive for the price

Strengths of the product

Definitely faster than USB 2.0. More than double Great Design, like the idea that it doesn't have separate cap, so you wont lose it Cheap, bought it for less than 10$ (8.99) when its on sale (around 58Cent/GB) Reliable so far, been using it for a week it has hole to put it as keychain

Weaknesses of the product

none so far

Additional Comments

great USB 3.0 recommended

Poor speeds, but functioning fine.

From Edmonton

Strengths of the product

No USB 3.0 connection issues.

Weaknesses of the product

Write speeds cap out around half of the advertised maximum of 30 MB/s. I get faster on a USB 3.0 port from older 16GB Kingston USB 2.0 flash drives I already own.

Additional Comments

Probably wouldn't buy this flash drive again, though at least it hasn't had connectivity issues, unlike other USB 3.0 devices I have purchased in the past.

Cheap but Slow

From Calgary

Strengths of the product

No cap to lose. 5 year warranty cheap, I bought when on sale.

Weaknesses of the product

Too slow. I didn't test speed with a program, but they didn't work in a Sony photo frame. Probably under 10 MB/s read and 5 MB/s write.

Additional Comments

Cheap but slow. Buy only if you don't care how fast they are.
