1 out of 5 eggsPoor Build Quality

This review is from: SanDisk Extreme 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model SDCZ80-032G-A46

Pros: High speed. Hit up to 198 MB/s read and 106 MB/s write with CrystalMark. 10/10 speeds.

Cons: Build quality is bad. I have owned this USB for less than a month and a part inside already broke. I had dropped it a few times from a reasonable desk height, until it finally broke last night. I could hear the little part that came out as I shook the USB.

A few things happened, mainly with the locking mechanism.
1. The USB once extended could be pushed back since the locking mechanism broke
2. The USB could NOT extend, getting stuck halfway.
3. USB functioned normally.

Other Thoughts: So sure this USB is lightning fast, but what good is it when you're unable to use consistently after a few drops?

4 out of 5 eggs136MB Read - 90MB Write

This review is from: SanDisk Extreme 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model SDCZ80-032G-A46

Pros: Great Writing speed. Had windows XP booted up in vmware under 15 seconds as oppose to 22 seconds on the HDD even with short stroking.

Firmware v3 of this device was recognized as a removable drive, unlike the previous version.

When the usb pops out, it makes a clear crisp clicking sound that reminds me of an old Swiss automatic knife. *CLICK* *CLICK* *CLICK*

Cons: Initially, I thought I had purchased the Rolls-Royce of flash drives. The reading speed was no where near as advertised. I was expecting reading speed to be close to 170MB. But 136MB is disappointing. However the writing speed blew me away.

3 out of 5 eggsFast but Fixed Disk

This review is from: SanDisk Extreme 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model SDCZ80-032G-A46

Pros: Very fast drive that is a bargain when at sale price.

Cons: I was hoping the drive would identify as removable. A January 2014 post on the Sandisk forum stated that Sandisk changed back to producing flash drives as removable. I thought that I would likely receive a removable drive so I was disappointed.

Other Thoughts: I considered sending the drive back but decided to keep it.

3 out of 5 eggswindows 7 problem

This review is from: SanDisk Extreme 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model SDCZ80-032G-A46

Pros: I didn't buy it.

Cons: I take this from their forum, reading this made the decision easy:
"Have you considered writing to Microsoft and asking them to patch their Windows 7"

If you purchase this for a windows 7 pc, you do run some risks...

5 out of 5 eggsSandisk Extreme USB 3 flash drive

This review is from: SanDisk Extreme 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model SDCZ80-032G-A46

Pros: By far the fastest USB flash drive available in early 2014 for efficiently moving entire directories of numerous files totaling several GB to/from various computers that cannot be networked.
Writing small to medium sized files to this drive via USB3 is over 20x faster than typical USB2 drives. For example, 1 GB of small to medium sized files takes about 10 seconds, versus a typical range of 200 to 1200 seconds for most USB2 drives. It is 5x faster for writing and reading large files.
Over USB2, it is 5x faster for writes and 2x faster for reads than USB2 drives.

Cons: Bigger than most and so crowds in vertically stacked USB ports

5 out of 5 eggsFurther (and final) Thoughts

This review is from: SanDisk Extreme 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model SDCZ80-032G-A46

Pros: See: Other Thoughts

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Odd. Everything I said in my previous post was correct.

However, I decided to reformat the drive again and afterwards all of the S.M.A.R.T. data came up showing 100% (as new) with no retired blocks.

Additionally, the data that was previously showing the new replacement drive had only 95% life left is now showing it has 100%.

Finally, the drive now benchmarks to factory specs and no longer outperforms them.

SanDisk has informed me that they only replace defective drives with new ones -- so I am at a loss to explain the original S.M.A.R.T. data and significantly better-than-spec benchmarks (which I ran/confirmed several times), but it seems that after reformatting the drive (twice) everything is normal.

This is a strange anomaly, but SanDisk has been very accommodating so I felt I should give them the benefit of the doubt.

So as of now -- no complaints.
