1 out of 5 eggsStopped after 14 months

Pros: USB 3.0, very good for installing operating systems and moving files around quickly. Nice design.

Cons: I hate to give a 1 star, but more than half of the reviews right now are of people that suffered the same problem. These drives don't seem to have a long lifespan. Mine was working great until one day my computer suddenly said it needed to be formatted. It couldn't be read after that, and it was unable to be formatted by any computer (PC, Mac, or Linux).

I generally like Toshiba, but something about this product doesn't seem to be working well with all these short lived drives. I don't care to go through the warranty process since it was only $10. I got a lot done with this drive in the time I had it, but I'm glad I never used it to save anything important.

1 out of 5 eggsUnreliable

Pros: It worked for a year? (But all the data on it is now gone. I used it for the occasional file transfer and a repository for AV cleanup tools.)

Cons: I used this drive on rare occasions over the past year, no more than 40 times or so. I used it back up 3 gig of data a few days ago (Which thankfully I also backed up to an HDD) and it's now dead. Hurrah!

Lasted for 15 months.

1 out of 5 eggsDont Waste Your Money

Pros: No Pros

Cons: Purchased and plugged it into a laptop.
The drive said "write protected" and cannot be formatted.
It is worthless, now I know why New Egg was selling it so cheaply.

1 out of 5 eggsWorked Great...for 10 months

Pros: Worked great for the first 10 months I had it

Cons: Died after 10 months. Trying to see if Toshiba will replace it since Newegg only offers a 30 day return policy

4 out of 5 eggsOK

Pros: Works. Reasonable speed, size, design. Greta value with mail in rebate.

Cons: - I dont like mail in rebates, but they do make it for a great buy.

Other Thoughts: - Just follow instructions for rebate submission, maake copies of documens and call if you did not receive your rebate on time.

2 out of 5 eggsWorks ok, but only USB 2.0

Pros: Works.

Cons: I only get USB 2.0 speeds out of it. Dunno what happened, if i was shipped the wrong one or what.

Other Thoughts: Not worth the cost to even return it, but the one I received only does 2.0 speeds for some reason, so only giving it 2 eggs.

1 out of 5 eggsWorked great for 3 months then suddenly write protected

Pros: Fast and relatively cheap.

Cons: Died after 3 months with a write-protect error. I just plugged it in one day and tried to move a file to the drive and it says it's write protected. Turns out to be a common problem with these drives. I've tried everything suggested on the internet with no luck. Problem is that in order to get a replacement you have to send the drive back. While I understand the necessity, I have sensitive corporate files on the drive, and it's irrevocably write-protected. Because of this the data can be read, but not deleted or changed. The drive can't be formatted. It's not worth the risk to send it back and it's useless as is. So I'm basically out of luck.

Other Thoughts: If you buy one of these, don't put anything on it that you wouldn't want in the wrong hands or your warranty will essentially be null.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible quality

Pros: Worked fast, when it worked.

Cons: Died at 4 months, won't mount, can't be reformatted.

Other Thoughts: It didn't get much use. I used it once in a while to transfer new files from my desktop to my laptop. It was working fine, I unmounted it from my desktop, plugged it into my laptop, it was unreadable, unrecognized. Plugged it back into my desktop, it was unreadable. I opened all my disk related utilities to try and save the contents, but it was not readable. The computer asked if I wanted to format it, so I tried that, but format failed, again and again. It is totally unusable.
Not worth the time or the money to deal with Toshiba with warranty, even though I paid more a few months ago than it sells for right now. Look somewhere else for a flash drive. They should last longer than a few months.
