Pros: Moderate speed on USB 2.0 and 3.0. Not exceptional but acceptable. Construction quality seems good. Metal ends with plastic middle.
Cons: Drive is physically larger than I thought it would be. This is not a compact flash drive! One metal end slides to expose the connector. The slider opens MUCH too easily. Provides nearly zero protection as it easily opens by just carrying it in a pants pocket.
Other Thoughts: If you are buying this to carry it around, my advice is to find another drive. Based on my experience, the connector will be exposed to purse/pocket fuzz and the elements a lot. If it's for at home (or office) use, where the drive is not moved, then it would be ok.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Lexar JumpDrive Triton 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model LJDNV64GCRBNA
Pros: Everything already said about the USB 3.0 speed of the Triton drives is true. Very fast! Fastest drive I have ever used. USB 2.0 speed is fine but not the very best I've seen for a high quality drive. Physical strength-wise, seems well made. The capless design slider has a nice "snap" to it. Unlike some reviews where users felt the drive had an overly slick feeling to it... I don't find that has been an issue for me.
Cons: The shiny finish of black plastic top side is prone to minor surface scratching. I have had mine for just a few days. I carried it in my pants pocket and it already has 2 areas where the shine is gone. (The only things that touched it were other items made of plastic.) I do not believe this will affect the drive's long term reliability but unless you keep it in a velvet lined pouch, it won't be brand new looking for very long...READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Mushkin Enhanced Ventura Pro 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model MKNUFDVP32GB
Pros: Similar to what has already been mentioned. Made well/sturdy, cap snaps on the back when in use (helps keep it from being misplaced), bright LED when in use and quite fast (I have only used it on USB 2.0.)
Cons: Only 1 somewhat odd con. I have a Dell netbook that has 3 USB 2.0 ports. The Mushkin drive doesn't work with any of them without a bit of physical wiggling. This is the only PC that is doing this and the drive works well with all other PCs I've tried (so far 5 or 6 others.) Obviously a tolerance issue between the Dell's ports and the drive's connections.
Other Thoughts: I own and have owned many flash drives (2 or 3 dozen or more.) This is as good or better than any others I have tried.READ FULL REVIEW
