5 out of 5 eggs EggCellent Flash Drive! 03/02/2014

This review is from: SanDisk Extreme PRO 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model SDCZ88-128G-G46

Pros:

Speedy, Aluminum Housing, Retractable, Sleek, large capacity.
SanDisk SecureAccess software works well, no issues on Windows 7

Very nice flash drive which has speed worthy of the USB 3.0 designation. Was able to transfer over 12.5GB of music to the drive in just a little over 1 minute... a 1.5 GB movie in only about 12 seconds.

No slouch on USB 2.0 either!

Cons:

Price for this units might scare away some people but as I see it, the performance of this drive can justify a $1+ per GB price.

SanDisk SecureAccess software has no use on my Linux systems so I can recover about 10MB of space by dumping the extra proprietary software (of course I use trucrypt on them anyway).

Other Thoughts:

If my PC had faster HDD results would be even better but this drive takes all my PC can throw at it!

Average Access Time: 0.5 ms

Very pleased with the over-all performance and design of the drive, much better than the old Cruisers. Sleek design, retractable, lightweight aluminum housing that has a slot for key ring mounting will hold up much better than the plastic counterparts, the aluminum might aide in cooling as well? (although during testing my unit never even showed any noticeable increase in temperature). I would recommend this Flash drive to anyone needing a high capacity and fast drive.
