This is a simple and easy to use USB thumb flash drive that is 8 GB in size. I like retractable USB plug thumb drives as long as the USB connector stays extended when you try to plug it in and this one does. It is a reasonable size and it had OK writing speeds. It is slower than some of my other thumb drives but it does sell for less. The performance was good in my speed tests and I have included the information in my video for your information. The best write speed was 4979 MB/Sec and the best read speed was 16735 MB/Sec.

The specs state that the data retention is 10 years and the product has a 5 year limited warranty. This is a good product and it worked well in my testing. I rated it 5 stars.

I was supplied a sample for test and evaluation and I promised a fair and honest review.

This V7 thumb flash drive has 8 GB capacity. It has a retractable USB plug controlled by a slide on the side of the stick (I am attaching a photo which can be located by following 'customer photos' link under the main photo). When the plug is retracted its size is 2.0"L x 0.8"W x 0.35"H. I like USB drive with retractable plug design for carrying around in my purse. According to the specification this memory stick has 10 year data retention and 5 year warranty. The memory stick is compatible with Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7/8, Linux Kernel 2.4, and Mac IS 9.0.

I measured the performance of V7 flash stick with several utilities and found it to be pretty good. It falls in the mid range of various USB memory sticks I have tested in the past, it is neither the slowest nor the fastest.

To test various USB devices I run the same set of tests so I can compare devices to each other in "apples to apples" comparison, this way if some unit does not perform well I notice it by comparing it to other devices I have tested. My "write" test consist of copying a large set of mp3 files totalling 638916 Kbytes.

V7 Flash Drive write performance:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
✔ 1.535s (cpu) 1:08.45 (clock time)

For comparison I including numbers for copying the same set of files to SanDisk USB2 memory stick, Transcent microSDHC class 6 card, to hard disk of my computer,

✔ SanDisk USB2: 1.358s (CPU time), 1:23.53 (clock time)
✔ Hard Drive: 0.703s (CPU time), 0:10.06 (clock time)
✔ Transcent microSDHC : 1.482s (CPU time), 1:33.97 (clock time)

For read performance test I use Linux Disk Utility Benchmarks.

V7 Flash Drive Read-only performance:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
✔ Minimum read rate 34.

Style Name: 3.0 Slide GreySize Name: 16GB
Retractable flash drives are a must for me. If something has a cap, I'll lose it. Then by the time I've located the cap, I've probably lose the item the cap belongs to. So I'm better off right from the get-go using something that retracts. So when I pick out flash drives, I usually prefer ones like this V7, with a retractable design. But I have a major issue with retractable drives that don't lock and stay in that position when your trying to plug them into a USB port. I was very happy to find that the the button locks into place on this drive very well, so that when it's pressed into a computer USB port, it doesn't start to retract inward from the applied pressure.

The case is made of a hard plastic that looks and feels like metal. It feels pretty solid in design and you have to hold it in hand and really look closely before you can tell that it's not a metal casing. There is a small cut-out at the end for adding a small nylon cord if you wanted to be able to carry this on a key chain, however the cord is not included. It transfers files without issue and I've done a few program backups on it and then restored the files from those backups, and haven't had any problems. My computers all recognize it as soon as I plug it in, without need for any prompting from me. It's been working well for me these past few weeks and I've not run into any problems.

A sample unit was provided for reviewing purposes.

The V7 32 GB USB Flash Drive is a no frills, large capacity flash drive with middle of the road performance.

The case is glossy black and feels a bit on the flimsy side. When pressed you can hear the case creak in your fingers as the top and bottom pieces flex. The retractable USB plug is adequate but not that smooth in operation. It locks the USB plug when fully extended.

To gauge the speed of the read and write speed of the flash drive, I copied a 3.84GB file to the card using my MacBook Pro. The flashdrive was plugged into a USB 3.0 port (backwards compatible to USB 2.0). It took an very lengthy 11 minutes for the 3.84GB file to be written to the flash drive. To test the read speed, I copied that same file back to my MacBook Pro. Read time was significantly faster resulting in a time of just 3:44 for the file to copy back to the computer.

Though no speed demon, this flash drive is priced right for the budget minded individual looking for a high-capacity USB 2.0 flashdrive.

V7 provides a 5 year warranty and data retention is promoted as being approx 10 years.

I was provided a sample for testing and review with no expectation of a positive review. If you have any questions please leave me a comment and I'll do my best to answer.
