No complaints at all
on November 6, 2012
This flash drive is great. Addressing what others complained about in other reviews, the complaints I confirm are legitimate, but are not to worry about. In my 3.0 ports, I was able to transfer 556 songs (4gb of data)onto the flash drive in 3 mins, and 30 seconds. Half the time it took a usb 2.0 in the same usb 3.0 port. Construction: it is slightly cheap, but the quality still seems nice for the price you pay. I just would recommend you keep it in a pocket of your pants, backpack, laptop case, whatever; and you'll be fine. The lock: when you slide the usb plug out, there is a lock that prevents it from going in when you insert it. You have to put slight pressure down on the slider to put it back in its original position. When I put this flash drive in my laptop, the lock did not fail and cause the usb to go back in like with other reviewers despite the fact that my laptop's usb ports are very stiff and require quite some pressure. It's likely the lock will wear out one day. This is 14.7 gigs (omg not 16????). News flash, but no matter what flash drive or computer you get, the data it holds won't be exact. My mom has a computer with a 1 terabyte hard drive (I'm jealous), and it only came with 918 available. There is a proportional absence in all types of memory storage (do the math if you want). For those like me who like a light to show it is working, there is a rather dim light that shines through the green plastic behind the slider. It stays on while inserted, and flashes when in use. In the end, this flash drive is great and well worth the money. It looks great with shiny black (the ultimate color for showing the most minor scratches :/ ) and vibrant green with gray trim, is decently durable at the price with a lifetime warranty, and most importantly, it works without any problems for a low price. If you buy this, you will not be disappointed unless you get a defect. While I typed this review, my usb 2.0 flash drive is still copying all my songs (backed up my songs onto both drives).
