1 out of 5 eggsA waste of money stay away!

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Prospector 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model MKNUFDPR16GB

Pros: Was cheap when I bought it, 16 gig and is Mushkin.

It gets one egg for lasting just over 10 months.

Read below.....

Cons: It doesn't last.

As of last week it started not reading the file system, have tried formatting.
It will then read the file system until a few files are copied then it goes corrupt again.
I have tried it in win xp, win 7 and win 8 and it does the same in all 3 systems.
Ubuntu will not even read it at all.

I looked into RMA'ing it and it will cost almost as much as just ordering a new one to send it back.

Also note that they charge your CC to cross ship another!!!
From their web site:

"2. There is NO CHARGE for this Advanced Replacement Service.
3. You must have a valid Credit Card or Debit Card in order to process payment.
a. The FULL VALUE of the product being cross-shipped WILL BE CHARGED to you (the customer's) credit or debit card.
b. The sum charged to your card will be refunded once the defective product is received."

So I doubt i will return it. Why should I pay fees/interest on card while I wait for them to get my "DEFECTIVE" product.

And yes I always "remove hardware" with any item I use on USB.

Other Thoughts: I bought this 2/9/2012 it lasted until about 12/20/2012.

It is sad that a good name like Mushkin would put out a product like this.

I have always like their memory but if they put out products like this I think I will shop for different named products.

I will never buy another Flash Drive from Mushkin and will prob not buy their memory again.

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Prospector 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model MKNUFDPR16GB

Pros: Great price, great performance

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Bought to use as additional space on my Xbox360 4Gb my wife got me for christmas. Some places mentioned possible issues with matchmaking if playing a game from the thumb drive, but I have had no such issues. Everything loads quickly and I've had no hiccups in online game playing.

3 out of 5 eggsMushkin 16 GB

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Prospector 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model MKNUFDPR16GB

Pros: Copied Music Files and played them.

Cons: Took 57 minutes for 7.44 GB Music. Max speed 2.44 MB/sec.
Copied same files on a 16 GB Cruzer took 37 min Max speed 3.50 MB/sec.
The Mushkin Prospector is not an ultra fast USB drive!

3 out of 5 eggsReal Review

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Prospector 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model MKNUFDPR16GB

Pros: 16gb flash drive is nice.

Cons: I was excited to get this because of the few reviews that are on here however the write speed is 2-3mb/s, I have a 2gb flash drive that has 6-7mb/s write and I got that for free.

The read speed is also only 7-8mb/s, so it is slow to copy to and from the device.

Other Thoughts: Previous reviews are so misleading(it's actually phishy)...check the official mushkin website if you don't believe me about this drive and it's speed. I wish I would've done a little more research first before purchasing this.

5 out of 5 eggsFast in a flash...drive that is.

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Prospector 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model MKNUFDPR16GB

Pros: Killer transfer rate! I used the two I bought as extra storage on my 360 and noticed a dramatic change in data transfer speeds as compared to the PNY attache it replaced.

Cons: Flimsy case if used as a pocket drive.

5 out of 5 eggsMushkin Prospector 16GBytes.

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Prospector 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model MKNUFDPR16GB

Pros: Cheap price (sale at the time), high speed, works well for assisting customers with data storage.

The casing seems attractive. Scored between 20 to 24 megabytes per second on reads, and between 12 and 16 per writes on a full stick test. Not shabby, all things considered. Remember however, that this was due to the usb socket, as well. Quite fast, otherwise, fast enough to be used as an operating system disk while away from home, for those without portables such as laptops or tablets.

Cons: Casing seems flimsy, but most usb sticks seem to swing that way these days. Keep it somewhere safer than a keychain, and you don't risk breaking the key loop. If you sit on your keys or work hard, you will invariably break all but sturdy metallic loops. This one's plastic.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat drive

This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Prospector 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model MKNUFDPR16GB

Pros: Very well put together drive. This seems like a white version of their more expensive mulholland model.

I haven't clocked it but it feels very fast compared to other drives.

The desdription doesn't mention it but it does have a green flashing indicator light. It's visible but not overly bright and only comes on while transfering.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I make my living as an artist. I take flash drives apart and replace the plactic cases with custom built cases made with brass, copper and glass. Each one requires many hours of work so I don't mess around with cheap flash drives.

I've taken apart lots of flash drives and the quality of the Mushkin products keeps me coming back to them.
