5 out of 5 eggsGreat little drive

Pros: Fast
Extracts like a scared turtle
Great value

Cons: No lanyard
Not 64GB for $8
2.0 not 3.0
Not made in the USA

Other Thoughts: Great "give away" drive and perfect for school.
Where is my lanyard? Am I the only one with fasion sense?
I have owned about 10 of these drives over the past year - they hold up well after many uses with many people handling them.

5 out of 5 eggsIt just works

Pros: - Economical
- Decent size for moving files around, ISO -> USB installers, etc
- Solid reliability

Cons: - Plastic is rather flimsy, but I've yet to run into that causing a problem

Other Thoughts: We've probably bought upwards of 100 of these at work for the last year or so, never had a problem out of them yet. We use a few dozen just for CNC machine files, I have a dozen or so of my own for assorted uses, like Linux liveCDs. They're our goto product for a cheap, reliable, decently sized USB flash drive.

3 out of 5 eggsgood.. but warranty?

Pros: like the model with retractable, seems to be quick.

Cons: 4 mos later can't write or reformat in windows or linux (gparted), so sent in for warranty, that was 3 weeks ago...

Other Thoughts: not sure whether the limited lifetime warranty means.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Thumb Drive

Pros: Stores 4 gigs without complaint, even when you are getting near that final last few megabytes of data. Some get cranky as u near it's capacity, but not this one. Slider opens the usb port easily without hesitation.

Cons: It could be better constructed but as this is a temporary thumb drive it's not bad at all. Feels a little flimsy. Also under heavy loading/unloading it produces "not responding" error message, but that could be my windows. Still works even with error message just fine.

Other Thoughts: When I first got it i was concerned about how the usb slider seemed loose. Seemed a little flimsy to me. But at the price i paid u can't expect much. It did the job of transferring all my files from the old puter to the new one without any trouble. It produced an error message of not responding, but it was still working. Pretty good buy since i needed something temporary to move files from old puter to new one.

3 out of 5 eggsEncryption Software

Pros: Good price and free shipping. Copying files is quick.

Cons: Downloaded the software and copied the file to the flash drive. When you run the program, the first confirmation screen asks whether you want to scan LanDisk(?). Clicking Yes looks at all your network, as well as local, drives. When you choose the file you want, which can be difficult as the window can't be re-sized, it leaves the file in the original folder. As I bought this with the idea of distributing them to staff in my company, I have reservations about this. Most of the folks are not tech savvy, so they would "assume" that the file that was encrypted would be on the flash drive; this is not the case. You have to take a 2nd step and copy the encrypted file. I used another vendor's flash drive, and that was a simple drag & drop encryption process. I don't think I'll buy more of these but go back to the other vendor.

Other Thoughts: If Transcend could fix the software interface, this would receive 5 eggs.
