1 out of 5 eggsWorks for a while

Pros: Slightly faster than the usb versions

Cons: Dies very quickly.

Other Thoughts: Goes in to write protected mode at a whim. Tried to reformat with Windows XP, 7, Linux and various other utilities including one PQI supplied.

Cheaper to throw away than send back to China. Luckily had a backup prior to freezing.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Value

Pros: USB3.0, i.e. Fast
Activity LED
Good Value
Lifetime Warranty

Cons: Separate cap, although it does have a way to retain it on the other end.

Other Thoughts: Got one because it was on sale with free shipping.
Installed Ubuntu, running Live with persistence, so nothing is installed to Windows hard drive & all setting are saved to flash drive. Seems as fast as internal hard drive (which is a very fast 7200 rpm model).

4 out of 5 eggsWotks OK, but could be better

Pros: Cheap, Small, USB3.0, Speed is higher then 2.0

Cons: Cap is too soft

Other Thoughts: Works fine. Tests show that the sustained speed (1000mb) is 38mbs in 3.0 port and 18mbs in 2.0. The 3.0 port Is capable to do 95-100 mbs (tested).

Design, though, can be improved.
1. Soft cap flexes in you actually are polling the drive ouy of the plastic body when taking the cap off.
2. The cap can be put on the back end of the drive, but doesn't hold well.

These drawbacks nevertheless are by no means major. I can recommend this drive.
