2 out of 5 eggsSuper slow

Pros: Comfortable size
Great sliding mechanism
Looks good

Cons: Incredibly slow

Other Thoughts: It is slow to connect to the computer, and copying files to it takes at least twice as long as compared to my ADATA flash drive (I did a side-by-side comparison using the exact same files).

2 out of 5 eggsIt's sloooowww

Pros: It holds a bunch of space

Cons: After a month or so of use, it became unbearably slow (I'm talking 5-10MB/s slow), making putting on large files (why I got it) useless.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Customer,

Please contact Transcend Technical Support and maybe we can help you troubleshoot your USB drive.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter speed than others

Pros: Writing speed is about 9 to 10 mb/s. Reading is about 20 mb/s. Very fast for a low end flash drive.
My Sandisk writes only at about 4.5 mb/s. This unit, as you can see, doubles that. Excellent for 2GB or larger files.

Cons: None so far.

1 out of 5 eggsNever Worked

Pros: None

Cons: Never worked. I've purchased tons of stuff through Newegg over the years. Never wrote a review until now. This thing simply DOES NOT WORK. NEVER HAS. It, unlike most things you'll find on Newegg, is a waste of money. I've always purchased Corsair thumb drives, before and after purchasing this, why I bought this is beyond me. I've even purchased Transcend items that I liked, but this thing just does not work. STAY AWAY!

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

Sorry to hear that the drive did not work as expected. Please contact Transcend Support at 1-800-886-5590 ext 2244 and we will be happy to assist you.

The link to Transcend's RMA process has been provided as well.

5 out of 5 eggsQuality Drive

* Operates at expected transfer speeds

Cons: I didn't buy 2!

2 out of 5 eggsPart 2

Pros: Pretty cheap for a 16 GB flash drive. I bought it because of the price.

Cons: After four months of ownership, I thought it would speed up a bit or something. Instead, it takes like ten minutes to format it! Also, the transfer speed is usually no more than a few MB/s, and it usually goes at KB/s.

Other Thoughts: I think I'm gonna buy a USB 3.0 flash drive, seeing as how USB 2.0 is pretty outdated.

5 out of 5 eggsDurable!

Pros: I leave this thing in my truck in the AZ summer heat, and it still performs flawlessly. To top it off, I ran it through the washer and dryer, and it still works.

Cons: None to my knowledge.

1 out of 5 eggsSlow piece of junk

Pros: This is a super cheap drive, but I wouldn't even waste the time/money on it.

Cons: This drive has been super slow from day one. A couple of days ago it stopped working from being ejected properly. Drive mounts read-only. Have tried formatting on Windows XP, Windows 7, Linux (multiple distros, as well as via gParted and dd), and Mac OS X. Could not format on any.

So, not only was this drive painfully slow, but it died within months of owning.

Other Thoughts: I am never ever buying Transcend and/or cheap USB sticks ever again.

4 out of 5 eggscheap 16G, but slow writes

Pros: Cheap for 16GB, good read speeds, long, but narrow and thin design so doesn't block ports, no cap to lose.

Cons: Poor write speeds means you're not going to want to use 16GB, physically much larger than some USB drives.

Other Thoughts: Think about how you're going to use this drive before you buy. I'm using 2 of these, mirrored, to boot my FreeBSD server, so the write speed doesn't matter too much. I also have a Patriot Rage XT 8GB, which easily writes almost three times as fast, so that's a much better drive for general use. Copying a 1GB file to this drive I get 5.5MB/s, while I can write at over 15MB/s to the Rage XT. If you don't really need the size of this drive, you'll probably be happier with an 8G drive that's about the same price, but much, much faster.
