Pros: Right on the package, it says the following:
Lifetime warranty (meaning, they stand by their products)
XRay Proof (what? why?)
Water Proof (This is huge for those of us who live in a rainforest)
Shock Proof (good to know)
Cons: None that I can find.
Other Thoughts: Onward to the tests:

Tests ran off a USB3 connection.
This review is from: Silicon Power 128GB Blaze B05 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (SP128GBUF3B05V1D)
Pros: There are no pros, this is not a USB 3 flash drive (see below)
Cons: 1. Comes with executable on drive. This is a no-no. When you plug this into a computer for the first time, do a format ASAP.
2. Comes with 115 GB. You don’t get the advertised size of 128 GB.
3. Speed is 132 (read) / 28 (write) according to Crystal Disk Mark. This is 1/8th the USB 3 for read and and even worse for writes. This is NOT a USB 3 flash drive.
Other Thoughts: This have been tested on multiple machines. The only thing “usb 3” about this drive is the blue connector.
Do not buy, stay far away.
Pros: 1. You get two sets of spare keys. This is very helpful if one of the key paint is rubbed off from use.
2. I LOVE the RGB lights on the keyboard.. However, it drives a lot of people crazy.
Cons: 1. The palm rest is inadequate. The keys are extremely high and the rest is not high enough to balance the key height.
2. The software does not always remember your settings on Windows 10. Just restart the computer and they should reset.
3. Do not use the keyboard’s USB passthrough. It does not always work. Basically, it… dies for a bit then comes back on. However, this happens continuously. Therefore, it is not reliable.
4. It is missing the markers for F, and J. I am constantly losing my place.
Other Thoughts: 1. Make sure you install the latest software AND firmware!
I only removed one star due to the broken USB port. Other than that, it is NICE!
