Transfer rates seem normal (fast) and I've been playing with one of these for about a month now, mostly with trying out different Linux distributions for booting off this drive. The other one is just being used for misc. files, and whatnot. I do like the slide-out mechanic. You just give it a slight push downwards, and out. Then, same for pulling is back in. Be sure to push it down slightly before sliding, because it won't move otherwise. I hadn't realized in the beginning. It was working normal, and then jammed up. And yeah, turned out that for some reason, that specific time, I wasn't putting downward pressure on the "slider". It was probably just the position of my hand, or something.
Anyway, I'm sure this will last quite a while and continue to be reliable until it eventually dies. Seems all forms of digital media do, eventually. Just throwing that out there as a friendly tip. Back up in two locations/methods, minimum, if you have any sensitive data, especially those precious (visual) memories... Like pictures, videos, music probably not as important, but hey, anything you would be upset/cry over losing, is important to back up. Again, just as some friendly advice, set up increments for backing up your data. Maybe, every month or so, or if you've been heavy on your files during that period, go every two weeks. Get something like a highly rated/good external hard drive, and maybe one of these, in higher capacity, like 32gb or 64gb. Yes, it costs money, but you will be thankful later when you (unreliable) Hard Drive or Solid State Drive on your computer fails.
PS, I can't really speak for the reliability of the other Cruzer size variants, but I'm sure they work just fine. I know I was much longer winded here than I needed to be, but I know many will be looking to use these drives as somewhat "permanent" means of backup, which is both a good and bad option, as I have said above. If you read through this, good. If not, then whatever, but hopefully this helps people to realize how important these things can be. No form of digital media is completely permanent. Not even gold "archival grade" DVD's. A good alternative to those however, are Taiyo Yuden "Silver Thermal Lacqer", which to be honest, seem to perform well compared to gold dvd's.
-Plenty of storage space for most documents and great if you want to use it for PortableApps
-Decent read/write speed getting your files transferred fairly quickly
-Pre-formatted in FAT32 so it's ready to use out of the box no matter what OS you have
-Slim form factor so it won't block other USB ports
-Could be faster but still manages to get the job done
-Can disconnect during long access times (was using Thunderbird Portable and my email has a huge archive of maybe 4000 or more emails which takes a long time to download, had to finish the download on my local hard drive and copy it back to the flash drive when finished, have had no issues since but have not tried to copy really large files yet)
I feel like it has something to do with the mechanism that pushed the USB male end out. It could have just been my unit but it never felt right when I was pushing it out. When it broke, it broke right where the plastic meets the metal and was entirely unusable.
I doubt many people are purchasing these anymore, but if you are on this page, go for the newer model.
