5 out of 5 eggsSpeedy drive

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

Pros: For the price, you are getting some very high read and write speeds. The advertised 50MB / s is achieved 95% of the time. No problems with it whatsoever so far, including durability.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this drive to anyone who needs to transfer large files back and forth from one device to the next.

5 out of 5 eggsFurther (and final) Thoughts

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

Pros: See Other Thoughts

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Odd. Everything I noted in my previous posts was correct.

However, I decided to reformat the drive once 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, after the second reformat, 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 the 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.

(In fact, I just purchased the 128GB Extreme version.)

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.
