PQI U821V 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model 6821-032GR1002
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Still going strong! 07/01/2014

This review is from: PQI U821V 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model 6821-032GR1002

Pros: Longevity, Quality, Capacity, and Form Factor! This drive is now over a year old and has worked just as good as day 1. I am very impressed by this drive! As you can see I have written 2 other reviews for it. The drive averages 8.20MB/s on a High-speed USB 2.0 connection which gets the job done for me, on USB 3.0 it's about 12.80MB/s which is a small improvement over USB 2.0, it's not the fastest drive ever, but for a micro flash drive I am happy. So data speeds and consistency are awesome! See my other reviews here for more information!

Cons: The keyring.. So in my previous review I mentioned that the cap keep unscrewing, well it died like 6 months ago.. The whole thing fell apart. It's quite useless... I almost lost the drive when it feel apart. I recommend getting a better key ring on day one. I made my own, which was a lot of work, but the hole is just so small... Lol.. That I could not find an appropriate sized keyring. So I was forced to bend some metal around the existing hole and around my key ring. So it's not going anywhere unless that plastic piece I mentioned before falls out.

Other Thoughts: This will be my last review on this drive. It has been and continues to be fantastic! I completely recommend it! It has lasted a long time and does everything I need it to do.

5 out of 5 eggs Best USB 3.0 for the money! 08/06/2013

This review is from: PQI U821V 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model 6821-032GR1002

Pros: I have owned this USB 3.0 flash drive since (05/02/13) and it is still running today. Now that was not that long ago, but I will give you a quick run down of this things life thus far: The drive averages 8.20MB/s on a High-speed USB 2.0 connection which gets the job done for me, on USB 3.0 it's fast.. I don't have an exact number for this figure as my desktop is the only USB 3.0 machine I own and I didn't benchmark it. So data speeds and consistency are awesome!

Now for the design/physical aspect: It looks sleek!! Very thin, short, and the casing is aluminum so it's sturdy!! Now everything I have mentioned is standard stuff.. However, the entire reason I super glued it to my vehicle key was not to keep it from shifting or falling off on a normal day, but because I have my motorcycle key on the same keyring; thus I was paranoid about it falling off while riding. To give you an idea about that abuse the bike is an older 1982 650cc Honda Nighthawk and it has some heavy vibrations, when I ride with my FitBit Pedometer I can start my ride at 0000 steps and ride for a half an hour and I step off with around 1700 or over 2000 steps.. So the USB drive sits there and rattles on the fuse housing for the entire ride and yet it still lives. Secondly, I recently ran a 5k Obstacle Course and drudge through about 3 or 4 feet of lake water. My pockets filled up with water and drenched my keys and flash-drive (08/03/13), which I forgot was in there.. I was concerned I ruined it and was over 3 hours from home so I had no way of drying it properly so it stayed in my pocket for another 6 hours before I was able to leave and get home. I completely forgot I soaked it till today (08/06/13) and decided to test it out. Plugged it in and it started right up, I transferred over 6 GB of music, safely disconnected, and put it back in my pocket!

Cons: The only issue I see is the keyring spot is made of plastic and is attached to the aluminum body, so I foresee this to maybe come apart someday, but it hasn't happened for me yet so I don't care. I have the metal twist cap strap super glued to my vehicle key since it likes to slowly come undone and TRY to fall off. Obviously it hasn't happened to me because I super glued it down, so obviously not a big deal you can always use a different keyring attachment. I just like the one it came with so I choose to keep using it.

Other Thoughts: So in my book this drive is a winner! When it does die some day I will be buying another one.

5 out of 5 eggs Just Purchased (05/02/2013) 05/02/2013

This review is from: PQI U821V 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model 6821-032GR1002

Pros: -Cost was good for the quality and specs.
-Form Factor is as close to Micro USB 3.0 as I found
-32GB Capacity is okay, would prefer 64gb.
-Lifetime warranty from PQI.

Cons: -No reviews yet.
-Never heard of the company before.
-Lower Read/Write than other USB 3.0 (Due to the Form Factor).

Other Thoughts: I purchased this drive due to it's size and capacity, I wanted a Micro USB 3.0 drive and this was all that seems to be on NewEgg at the moment. However I have never heard of this company before and would like to see how this drive performs. I will post updates when I find any. (I've owned it longer, Errors, Major Positives). As I post these updates i'll change my rating for this review.
