4 out of 5 eggsVery Fast but Form Factor Could Be Better

This review is from: SanDisk Extreme 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model SDCZ80-016G-A46

Pros: Fast fast fast. I run portable apps and my other USB 3 drive was pathetic. The SanDisk is a huge improvment.

Cons: Do not care for the form factor. It is very long. I have not seen this big of a flash drive in quite some time..quite awkward in a laptop. Also I have had some difficulty with the thumb slide on it already getting stuck. I have only been using it a couple of weeks so am worried about that.

5 out of 5 eggsCrazy Fast

This review is from: SanDisk Extreme 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model SDCZ80-016G-A46

Pros: Write speed is actually a little higher than claimed, at least for writing 1+ GB files to a FAT32 filesystem. Good build quality.

Cons: Price.

Other Thoughts: Worth the premium price, IMHO.

5 out of 5 eggs190R 60W

This review is from: SanDisk Extreme 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model SDCZ80-016G-A46

Pros: 186.3 MB/s read and 60.79 MB/s write according to CrystalDiskMark 3.0.3
4K R/W are 11.14 and 4.98, respectively.

Cons: Not sure why the package claims that it can read at 245 MB/s when it only claims 190 MB/s on Newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Speed

This review is from: SanDisk Extreme 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model SDCZ80-016G-A46

Pros: Transfer speeds are twice that of other USB 3.0 flash drives.
Sturdy Case

Cons: No Lanyard is all.

Other Thoughts: After trying some other brands to restore images to my Macbook I found they were taking longer than USB hard drives!
Checked around, found this one and was very happy to see the transfer time for a 28GB image cut from 34 min from the HD to 20 minutes from this stick. If you need the speed this is the one to buy!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Drive

This review is from: SanDisk Extreme 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model SDCZ80-016G-A46

Pros: Fast transfer speeds. Durable. Ran through washing machine, still worked no defects.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: It is recognized as a hard disk and not a removable drive. Depending on the use for this drive will depend which category this lies in.

3 out of 5 eggsReplacement Has Significant Wear

This review is from: SanDisk Extreme 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model SDCZ80-016G-A46

Pros: See: Other Thoughts

Cons: See: Other Thoughts

Other Thoughts: Update on the replacement SanDisk Extreme 16 gig flash drive I received.

When I requested a return authorization for my defective one, the email I received from SanDisk said I would receive a "new replacement." The replacement I received shows only 95% Remaining Life (my defective still showed 100%) and a Retired Block Count of 1 (my defective showed 0 blocks retired). The replacement also shows Total Host Writes of 5605 and Total Host Reads of 75188.

It appears that not only did I receive a used replacement drive, but one that has significantly more wear on it than the defective one I sent in.

To be fair, the replacement benchmarks better than the defective one I returned (Sequential Write speed comes in at 140.1 MB/s which is far better than advertised -- my defective one came in at 61.08 MB/s, which is inline with advertised specs). 4K random Reads/Writes also bench marked better.

Would I purchase another SanDisk Extreme flash drive? -- yes, I would; the performance per dollar makes them a great value and the turn-around time for the replacement was fast.

Nevertheless, I am not happy about receiving a replacement drive with significantly more wear on it than the defective one I returned.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Customer Service

This review is from: SanDisk Extreme 16GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model SDCZ80-016G-A46

Pros: I would just like to give a positive shout-out to SanDisk.

In March of 2013 I purchased three of the SanDisk Extreme USB 3.0 flash drives (a 16 gig, a 32 gig, and a 64 gig). Additionally, I have previously owned perhaps a dozen various SanDisk USB 2.0 drives and had never experienced a failure.

Just over two weeks ago, the thumb slide on my 16 gig Extreme began to not lock in place. When I pushed it forward to extend the USB connector, the connector would "auto-retract" when I tried to plug it into a USB port (I was able to hold it in the forward position and plug it in long enough to allow me to copy the data off of it).

I emailed SanDisk customer service and attached a copy of my receipt. Within twelve hours I received a prepaid return authorization for exchange. I sent it off the next day and received a brand new replacement within ten days. In the interim, I received four emails from SanDisk updating me on the replacement status/process (defective received, processing, replacement sent, tracking number).

Irrespective of how good a company's products are, there are bound to be failures now and then. When that happens, customer service distinguishes the excellent companies from the mediocre/poor. Some companies have made their warranty exchange process so difficult that I have simply tossed their product into the trash. But not SanDisk.

Thanks SanDisk.

(The drive comes formatted for FAT32 but I immediately reformatted it to NTSF with no problems. I am also running Windows 7 Home Premium and have experienced no problems with the new replacement drive working with that OS.)

Cons: None.
