This review is from: PNY 128GB Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model P-FD128TBOP-GE
Pros: Great when it works FIVE STARS!!! Just don't use it to create a “Recovery Drive” in Windows 8..1? It formatted it twice to 32 GB. At time thought was defective! I could not find any simple fix information on changing it back to 128 GB on PNY Website; hopefully now fixed or read below?
Cons: I have been frustrated for while with New 128GB USB Drive only showing up as 32GB even after re-partitioning it with NTFS, etc?. Checked PNY Website for a fix there was nothing even in Website search? Decided to call as last resort before warranty ends and considering leaving negative Newegg feedback on purchase? Bruce with PNY Technical Support called me this week and said it sometimes happens other program see and re-formats it as 32GB. Bruce did not say what program though showed easy fix and it works great now with extra 70GB of backup. I now would buy another very fast… These are the somewhat simple steps that PNY should list to fix it? Oops, after tried again creating a “Recovery Drive” with 128GB PNY USB Drive in Windows 8.1… Back to 32GB? I shall just use a cheap 32GB USB Drive now and I now know the fix… Thanks again Bruce...
Open command prompt as administrator (Admin)
Type: list disk
Type: select disk n (Where n is the USB drive)
Type: create partition primary
Type: format fs=ntfs quick
Type: exit, close window…
Sorry Bruce if it causes you extra work, LOL. Martin
Other Thoughts: Reduced an Egg for PNY not listing this problem and simple FIX on their website; I have no idea why? I was close to giving you single egg negative feedback PNY! Thank you Bruce againREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast, worked great for six or seven months and no longer $500 for a 240GB SSD? Lets face it only lasted SEVEN MONTHS! I gave an extra star for Corsair RMA in 10 days though still have not received it yet. Except they have had a high failure rate with this drive and I lost some minor information that was not backed up or encrypted.
Cons: I began to trust it until Failed; turned into a brick after about seven months! Now it is a discontinued model, I wonder why? Newer replacement model; another model Corsair Force Series 3 CSSD-F240GB3A-NB 2.5" 240GB has only four reviews and been only out for four months? I was / am indecisive about doing a RMA and just take the loss; have to hope and trust Corsair shredded any info on drive?
Other Thoughts: Op's I did not set up Encryption on this extra (brick) drive yet; do not make my mistake use Encryption on all SSD's! I was / am indecisive about doing a RMA considered just taking the loss; have to hope and trust Corsair shredded any information on drive? RMA 10 days ago: is good sent out new one today; seem to be sending me the newer model? Corsair Force Series 3 CSSD-F240GB3A-NB 2.5" 240GB kit has only four reviews and been only out for four months, wish me luck?READ FULL REVIEW
