Summary Had a USB2 version of this, which I lost, so this is a sweet replacement - USB3 will give it some serious lasting power. Now I have to manage to hold on to it - and the cap, without which it's just another flash drive.
Pros - STURDY construction, solid aluminum body, I could probably run over this with my car. - Fast to read and write to.
Cons - getting cap back on requires putting pressure on the lid, but hardly a con as its water tight.
Summary I got this to backup important data, it currently sits inside a fire/water proof safe (yo dawg I heard you like fire/proof water proof data storage so...). This replaced an OCZ ATV flash drive which was VERY slow, so far I love the controller on this. I get read speeds of 60-80 MB/s and wrote of about 30 MB/s all over USB3. Over USB 2 it is also very fast, reading at about 30 MB/s and writing at about 20 MB/s.
Summary I actually thought that it be somewhat smaller than what it is. The screw out design is questionable as it takes a couple of seconds to unscrew the lid to get access to the USB port. It is not as fast as I thought. Only ~20Mb/s writes. But overall, for the price, definitely beats any USB 2.0 drives out there.
Pros -Solid as a rock (smashed it on cement a couple of times and still working perfectly) -Pretty fast, even on USB 2.0 (hasn-Steady speed -Water-proof (just threw it in melting snow during a hot day) -Can serve as a flail against other when attached to a strap -No stupid softwares on the key memory : simply empty. -Doesn't take enoughspace to black my other usb drives, as long they're not big. -Impossible to lose the cap : it is screwed tightly to the key.
Cons -Take time to unscrew the cap, but not a big deal. -Can't attach the cap anywhere, so it's possible to forget it or lose it when the key is in use.
-Can't plug it into my brain.
Summary Pretty good usb key so far. It has been just 5 days, but as computer tech, I used it a lot for installing Linux distributions on the fly and it went pretty quick to boot.
It doesn't take too much space when plugged in my usb port : I can plug another next to it without problem, as long as it isn't too big or too long (because the top of the key is large). Plugging an usb cable next to it is alright too.
Copying 9 GB of data (a huge 4 GB file, medium sized files and a big bunch of tiny files) took less than 8 minutes on USB 2.0, with a FAT32 filesystem on the key and on Linux. Pretty good !
Pros Relatively priced well Well built - seems quite sturdy
Cons Quite big, won't work so well on keychains into your pocket
Summary $20 after MIR...not bad considering normal USB 3.0 drives with the same storage are only $5 less. For $5 more, you're getting a well built flash drive, not to mention the speeds in comparison with the slower drives.
