Awesome! But only for about 3 days... then, poof! Utterly dead. 12/12/2011
This review is from: Lexar Echo ZX 32GB Backup Drive Model LEHZX32GBSBNA
Not a darned thing else!
I've NEVER had a flash drive fail on me... until now. This one lasted a mere 3 days!
I got this particular unit from Amzn, for use with my 11" MacBook Air, that I'm always running out of space with on its limited 64GB SSD. I bought it for the size, because I was planning on keeping it plugged in all the time. When it died, I hadn't realized it. I just saw the popup stating that the flash drive had been removed unexpectedly. The next day, when I want to transfer tons of development work to it, I noticed it was not working. It hasn't worked since. Tried accessing it from Windows and Linux, and was still unsuccessful. The machine recognizes it as a flash drive, but it can find no partitions to mount.
Thankfully I only lost a few screencasts, but had it lived to see a few more days, I would have lost ALL my development work!! Moral of the story: don't trust a single device to be your data backup. Backup, backup and backup again... to 3 devices!
