4 out of 5 eggsOverall A Good Purchase

This review is from: PNY 128GB Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD128TBOP-GE

Pros: Fastest transfer rates and reliability for the cost, which I paid about $57 in total for the 128GB version, Great for Mac, USB 2.0, 3.0 and everything else. Contacting PNY directly they warrantied the item after 5 months of ownership.

Cons: Product slowed after 4 months of ownership, then died at 5 months. So make sure you only keep temporary data or transfer data on this drive. Contacting PNY directly, all I had to do was pay under $5 for shipping and they are sending me a new one.

Other Thoughts: Despite the product failure, the manufacturer sent me a new USB drive which is more than I can say for many of the companies out there today. For the total price of $63 this is still a good deal. This isn't the first USB flash drive failure I have had, but this is the first manufacturer to replace the product.

3 out of 5 eggsTest it as soon as you get it

This review is from: PNY 128GB Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD128TBOP-GE

Pros: Price was right. Fast shipping by Newegg. PNY did honor their warranty. First unit worked fine on USB 2.0. On USB 3.0, small files okay, large files failed to write. (See Cons.)

Cons: I didn't actually get around to testing it until after the 30-day Newegg return period had elapsed. My bad.

First drive failed CrystalDiskMark write test USB 3.0. In USB 2.0 it worked fine as a USB 2.0 flash drive, both small and large files.

The PNA RMA website didn't work, and leaving callback messages never got returned. Newegg chat support got through to them and PNY finally contacted me. RMA went smoothly.

Replacement flash drive works fine, but speeds are nowhere near as advertised, 190MB read, 130MB write.
Actual speeds are closer to 117MB read and 100MB write. Results were similar on two machines, front and back ports. Test results below:

Other Thoughts: Test the drive as soon as you get it. The CrystalDiskMark program is free.

PNY support needs work. If you can't get through, chat with Newegg support and they will contact them on your behalf.

This review is from: PNY 128GB Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD128TBOP-GE

Pros: I tested it transferring a 13.3gb file. in a usb2 port it took 13min 14 sec and in a usb3 port it took 9min 18 sec. As expected the 128gb unformatted ends up to be 116gb formatted. I am pleased with this drive It works to my satisfaction.I, as everyone, wiuld like it to be faster.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

This review is from: PNY 128GB Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD128TBOP-GE

Pros: I got 3 of them & they been working great. I can put over 120 movies on each one, then put it in the headrest in the car to see the movies. Every movie plays like it was playing from a DVD. So now I don't have to have DVD's in the car anymore. I will be buying more to put more movies on it.

Cons: The price is a little high.

1 out of 5 eggsFast When It works

This review is from: PNY 128GB Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD128TBOP-GE

Pros: -Fast Transfer
-Large Capacity

Cons: -Sometimes Windows 8.1 64-bit cannot read it
-Windows keeps having to repair it
-When I insert it into usb 3.0 slot it glitches the system

Other Thoughts: Out of the package I had read issues with this thing. Hoping it was a driver issue and not the drive itself. Also have the 32Gb version of this and have no issues with that one.

Nothing but read issues with this one. I would say stay away from it.

I just use this drive to store movies on my WD player.

I did not purchase from newegg or I would have already RMA'd it. Purchased from a store that sounds like Maples.

1 out of 5 eggsDoesn't work

This review is from: PNY 128GB Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD128TBOP-GE

Pros: High capacity for a thumbdrive.
Fast read/write speed.

Cons: Can't read or write anything to it.

Other Thoughts: I bought this because I was looking for a way to transfer large files between computers (Linux, Windows, and Mac). Turns out Window's won't even recognize it when I plug it in. Upon further investigation in the Device Manager, Windows claims that "This device is disabled because the firmware of the device did not give it the required resources. (Code 29)".

I have tried it in multiple Windows and Linux machines with no luck. For some reason, the one Mac I have access to is the only one that will recognize it. So much for transferring files between computers.

1 out of 5 eggsLousy Warranty

This review is from: PNY 128GB Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD128TBOP-GE

Pros: Fast and large capacity

Cons: Lousy one year warranty.
Shows the low confidence of this brand.

Other Thoughts: Almost bought it as I want speed and large capacity...... till I saw that it has a horrible and short one year warranty only.
No thanks .... I'll look for other brands that have a life-time warranty.

4 out of 5 eggsSomething of a Bargain

This review is from: PNY 128GB Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD128TBOP-GE

Pros: Plenty of storage capacity and very good speed when working with large files.

Killer deal when on sale.

Cons: Pathetic 1-year warranty! Compare to other well-known brands who provide anything from 3-years to Lifetime warranty.

Small file performance (for example, many text docments and files needed to launch programs) is mediocre compared to how well the drive handles larger files.

Other Thoughts: For storing videos, photos, movies, and music this drive should keep you happy with its USB 3.0 speed. It's too bad they don't have enough confidence in their own product to provide a reasonable warranty. Should we be worried?

3 out of 5 eggsIs It Worth The Risk

This review is from: PNY 128GB Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD128TBOP-GE

Pros: High capacity
USB 3
My other PNY flash drives have had no issues (but see note below)

Cons: Much better price this month elsewhere after rebate
Numerous complaints of premature malfunctioning and possible compatibility issues with Windows 8.1

Other Thoughts: Thought I was ready to jump on this Shell Shocker item today, but don't think I want a real "Shock" within a few weeks or months. Carefully, research this product before hitting the "buy" button.
