This review is from: Transcend JetFlash V15 2GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive AES Encryption Model TS2GJFV15
Pros: Low cost. No cap to lose.
Cons: This device comes with Transcend's proprietary software to secure the drive. Make sure you really want this.
I bought this for my son to relay files back and forth to school and he really does not need software run on every computer he uses this with.
After an hour on the web and the transcend website I was unable to find any way to restore this to a generic USB drive. Reformatting the drive leaves this special partition in place and there does not appear to be any way to remove it.
Even if you do find value in this kind of security, look for something that is more widely supported. When this drive goes end of life you can be sure the software support will end.
Other Thoughts: I though this was just bloatware that could easily be removed. Not so.
