It was cheapest usb 3.0 drive and cheaper than some usb 2.0 drives.
It look good.
It is small (due to less heat than fast write drives).
Aluminum dissipate heat(so less heat related wear).
Solid main body construction so probably have less chance of breakage.
Awesome read speed (2-4 times typical usb 2.0 drive).
Ok write speed (double typical usb 2.0 drive).

For $2 more you get 2x performance of usb 2.0 drives.
If you want fast write speed, this company also offer M60 at nearly twice the price.

So what we have is GREAT readyboost drive or for normal usage since it is typical that more read than write.
If you need to transfer file back and forth often, patriot usb 3.0 drive offer better write speed for $4 more (not durable plastic according to reviews).

If you want to transfer small files, it is best to combine and zip it, or pay more than twice as much for cached drive.

I expect this to be durable long term based on company history, less write speed heat and aluminum.

Also, you should check out western digital portable usb 3.0 1tb passport....they are small and practically as fast as internal drives when connected to usb 3.0 port.
I also have seagate, which has bulkier 50% bigger casing... not sure that help with heat, so smaller wd is better in my view.
These draws more current than guaranteed by the standard but unwritten standard allow them to work fine with most computers though it might be best to connect after the start up.

In summery, this is a small,solid inexpensive fast drive and best value for the money.

UPDATE:
usb 3.0 market is moving fast... ADATA 3.0 is $1 cheaper though ADATA is extra slow copying small data

The manufacturer doesn't list any specifications of read/write speed on its website or the packaging. The performance itself a little faster than USB 2.0 flash drive; which is probably why no specs are listed. If you are looking for a high performance USB3 flash drive look else where. But this drive should suffice for basic storage or file transfers.

Copied Windows 7 install disc onto this flash drive and used it to install the OS. Install time was definitely shorter than using a physical DVD disc; took about 10-15 minutes for installation. At the moment, I'm using it as a portable Linux OS. For the price of a USB3 flash drive it is worth it; just don't expect the performance to match.

I bought this flash drive while in USA and used it once or twice. When arrived home, I started using it frequently and it took a couple months to stop working.
If you are looking for a quality flash drive do not buy this.

While this device is reasonably priced. It lacks necessary information critical to anyone in the market for such a device. Without basic information this and any device might not be considered for purchase.

I formatted it to NTFS and made it a bootable drive. Worked fine for a week, then started hanging up on boot.
Eventually wouldn't reformat and now has bad sectors. I wouldn't use it for anything but data transfer, and wouldn't
trust it with important storage.

A little disappointed in transfer speed for a USB 3.0 device but satisfied overall. Next is 64GB flash drive. I recommend this product.

Do not buy this one for the USB 3.0 claim - the write speed is 5MB/sec; about a 4 to 5 times slower than USB 2.0 speed (for USB 2.0 hard disks).

The packaging says "fully compatible with USB 3.0 2.0 and 1.1".

Inserting it in a USB 2.0 port makes Windows claim "this device can perform faster if connected to a USB 3.0 port", however the write speed is the same measly 5MB/sec irrespective of using a USB 3.0 or 2.0 port on the PC.

Live and learn :-)

Update: READING the same huge file from the USB stick benefits from the USB 3.0 interface, I see 50-60 MB/sec on read. This is an improvement over USB 2.0!
