I used my mom's Mac's Disk Utility application to erase it completely and reformat it to FAT32 (where it already was), and wrote zeros to all the free space. After that was done, it was the perfect starter flashdrive for my girlfriend.
To erase the firmware, Mac and Linux users, Use the application Disk Utility (if it is there). Select your device. There should be an option to format (Linux) or erase (Mac). Use that option, and make sure you format it to FAT32.
For Windows Users, go to Start>(RC)Computer>Manage. Navigate to the disk manager. Find out which one is your flashdrive. RC)>Format. Make sure you choose format FAT32. [RC means Right Click.]
So, for the crapware, 4/5.
The best thing Transcend flash drives have going for them is their portability. Small as they are, they are easy to carry but, and this is a big BUT, they are easy to lose too. I would NOT walk around with sensitive stuff on these drives unless my data was seriously encrypted and I would definitely NOT have my only copy of the data on the flash drive I keep in my pocket. These being said, I found them absolutely perfect for my needs - long term storage inside a safe deposit box.
Now, for the specs: the USB 2.0 aims at data transfer speeds of up to 480 Mbit/s (it's 'bits', not 'bytes'). This drive falls short of that but I believe it achieved about half of that in my testing - about 4 minutes to copy a 1GB file and that's perfectly okay with me. Everything else seems to be nominal. I've encountered no problems whatsoever.
A note of caution on usage. Everyone should be aware that flash drives allow for only a LIMITED number of read/writes at the same memory location. This means that you should NOT use them as memory extensions for your computer and that you should NOT keep any 'temporary' files on them. They are perfect for storing more or less static data but if you do some heavy reads/writes on them they are VERY likely to fail.
The black shiny case with its lime-green band where cap meets body looks cool. I consider it a stealth flash drive since it tends to "disappear" on dark surfaces. The hole for a lanyard is really too tiny to use unless you have a relatively stiff piece of elastic and good eyes; however, this isn't an issue for me since I'm more of a pocket or handbag storer.
All flash drives will fail eventually, so don't use yours for permanent back-up. I've had good luck with Transcend, and for that reason, I expect better than average reliability.

Its full of advantages.
Size: width of usb cable, fits everywhere
Speed, capacity, no need to install.
The only disadvantage is anavoidable: its easy to loose. But, due to black color, esy to find, for example at snow or sand.
And also its really robust, and almost impossible to kill. Mine spend a night in the snow in the parking lot, then in the morning was overridden by couple of cars and spend time until noon in a puddle of mixture of water and show-melt chemical agent. After washing, wiping and staying in the room for an hour it found working without problems. Just a few scratches on plastic surface.
Resume: nothing compares to products from transcend.
Guys from Kingston and SanDisk should think about goung out of the business and switch to something less challenging.
