This tiny drive has a nice gummy silicone case and cap. It's a speed demon on READS at 80MB/s. But it's not nearly as fast for WRITES -- about 15MB/sec. I haven't found any "budget" USB 3.0 thumb drives that have amazing write speeds. You get what you pay for, I guess. My main problem is that this drive requires 300 mA of power -- which means you can't use it with a hub with other devices attached -- it would constantly disappear from my desktop as soon as I started copying to it. I had to plug it directly into my computer for it to work.

I received two of these. The first was dead on arrival. It was not recognized by several computers, Mac and PC, in neither USB 3.0 nor USB 2.0 ports. Not a good sign but not a deal breaker; could just be a lemon. I returned it and received a replacement which failed after the 3rd or 4th use. The exposed connector became extremely hot to the touch after which it would not get recognized by any computers I tried. This is a shame since there aren't that many USB 3.0 flash drives of this size, which I really want for my laptop so that it doesn't protrude too much. It's difficult to tolerate a product when two of them fail consecutively.

I was looking for the speediest small sized USB stick at the best value I could with the intent of using it as my FreeNAS boot drive on my HP N40L micro-server. I ended up choosing this little guy--although it will probably spend most of its life in a USB 2 port, I figured it probably out performed most USB 2 sticks, and liked the idea that if I ever add a PCI-E USB3 controller to the n40l it could be moved to a usb 3 port. The only benefit of using faster media as a FreeNAS boot drive is faster boots, and faster config saves--and at 32GB this stick is 30GB overkill(FreeNAS only requires 2GB), but I figured might as well go all out. My main concern was how it performed in a USB 2 port, and I was dismayed to not really find any test results. So, I took a chance on it, and purchased it. The first thing I did when it arrived, was run speed tests in CrystalSpeedtest. The first set of results was with it plugged into a USB 3 port, and the second in a USB 2 port. The results speak for themselves, and needless to say, I'm very happy with it. Of note, it easily appears to max out the full bandwidth potential of USB 2 on sequential reads . Note also the sequential writes on both USB 2 connected and USB 3 connected results is essentially the same, so that seems to be it's max write speed.

For my purposes, this little snot (mine is green) has thus far been working beautifully in my FreeNAS server.

The test results:

Had no issues plugging this into a PC. I received it on May 5, today is the 23rd. But when I put it into my powered MAC USB hub, both the hub and the flash drive got hot - the flash drive was seriously hot to the point of quite uncomfortable to hold. The Mac would not read the drive. I'm concerned that if I had left it in longer, it could have burnt out the ports it was in and/or been a fire hazard. $10.99 was too good to be true. Pass on it next time.

This was supposed to be "Supersonic" - perhaps that is true if you are talking about an equivalent for MPH = KB/Sec. It runs very hot, and where I get write speeds of 45-60 MB/S, and read speeds of 60-80 MB/S from other drives, this one is 12-15 write and 25-30 read.

Great durable product! It goes on my keychain and is always with me! I use it for school and large PSD, and InDesign files. I even have some movies on there. It is very fast and works great for Windows ReadyBoost as well as saving large files quickly

Bought this with the hope that I could install it in a MacBook Air as a semi-permanent storage drive. I wanted three things: small physical size, large capacity, and fast write/read time. This item provided two of the three - USB 3.0 provides fast read/write times and 64GB is good size especially for the price (qualitatively I notice there seems to be a $/GB break point for anything larger than 64GB). Unfortunately it's physically larger than I expected. It sticks out from the side of the computer at approx 1.5 cm and I'm concerned that a good knock from something will break it off.

I ended up using it as a temporary storage instead of leaving it in the computer - and it works GREAT for this.

I bought this on sale thinking it'd be a great little flash drive with good speed. Turns out this only works with Windows computers. At first I thought it might have been my computer, but I brought it into the apple store and it did not work with any of their computers. The genius bar technician even tried it with all the different types of Mac OS to see if it was an operating system problem, still did not work. Then I thought that it might have just been defective, so I another 64gb and even a 32gb (green) one to try. NONE OF THEM WORKED! Save yourself the trouble if you are running a mac. Although it says on the package that it is compatible with mac systems, it definitely is not.
