This review is from: Verbatim Store 'n' Go Micro 32GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model 44051
Pros: Small form factor for its capacity.
Large capacity for its form factor.
Cons: The drive is terribly slow 5 MiB/s at best
It seems to take forever to be recognized by an OS and mounted
Does not work as a boot disk
Other Thoughts: I purchased this to use as a boot disk in a small embedded robot platform--I found out the hard way that its possible to have a USB disk that doesn't boot.
I've basically scrapped it after finding all the above flaws. It still "works" to store and retrieve data, but its too painfully slow for even that.
Pros: Fits 3.5 and 2.5 disks
Collapses to smaller form when only 1 disk slot is in use.
Expands to support 2 disks simultaneously when needed (appears as 2 disks to OS)
Clone feature may useful for some (though I've never used it)
USB 3 Speeds: I get 223 MiB/s reads from an attached SSD
Cons: The clone button is a little scary when working with 2 disks. Though the manual says you have to press and hold for 5 seconds to start the clone, but I get nervous about an accidental press immediately causing the second disk to be unrecoverable.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Atom 64GB USB Flash Drive Model MKNUFDAM64GB
Pros: Moderate usage for 3 months now with no problems.
The capacity given its size is awesome.
Stays cool--some competing products have heat issues.
Quickly recognized and works in every computer I've tried (windows/linux desktops, new and very old macbooks)
White plastic matches nicely with Apple peripherals.
Cons: Could write a little faster (but I wasn't expecting speed, just something I could keep plugged in without too much hassle).
Other Thoughts: After 3 months usage I'm getting (as reported by 'dd' transferring large files to/from it):
21 MiB/sec write
127 MiB/sec read
