Not bad so far 10/04/2012
This review is from: PQI U822V 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model 6822-008GR5XXX
Haven't done any tests to verify the speeds, but the construction is nice and the size is fine.
Comes with a keyring clip and a small chain (can use one or both).
It's formatted in some odd manner such that the Windows USB/DVD Download Tool wasn't able to format it (so that it could be used as a Windows 7 installation drive). I was able to clean it using these steps (found online):
Open command prompt.
Type in command line
SELECT DISK # (USB Stick)
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
SELECT PARTITION 1
(Takes a while on some steps)
(I don't think it's U3, or any similar launch, but I have autorun disabled so I'm not positive.)
Also includes some trial software for (IIRC) anti-virus.
