1 out of 5 eggs Hands down, the worst USB drive I have owned 01/05/2014

This review is from: Silicon Power Touch 835 32GB Waterproof USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model SP032GBUF2835V1T

Pros:

I love the size of this drive and it's inexpensive.

Cons:

From day one, this drive has been finicky, unreliable and extremely slow. I do IT work and so this drive goes into a lot of machines, this is not an incident isolated to my system. About 25% of the time I plug this into the front port of a computer it will lock up the system until I unplug it. Windows Explorer just can't seem to deal with it. When this happens I plug it into one of the rear ports and it typically works. The difference between the front ports and the rear is simply a wire running from the motherboard to the front of the PC, in the rear they are soldered onto the board. I have no idea why that would have any effect but it does. When it works, speed starts out fast and over several minutes it slows to a crawl. I simply cannot use this as a reliable storage source for the tools I use in the field.

Other Thoughts:

I read the reviews and tossed the dice... it was too cheap to not try. I will keep it around for an emergency. If my new drive fails I can use this for the few days I will need to get another.
