good drive can be useless warranty
Pros: Newegg got the drives to me in record time. Drive is fast and reliable, have purchased 2. The first one came with password protection - very easy to set up and use the last one came with AES protection by truecrypt.
Cons: The password protection was user friendly and easy to sey up. The AES encrytion by truecrpt was much more difficult to use so didn't set up the securety. I was very disappoined that Corsair had done away with the password protection and was using the not so user friendly new encryption. If it wasn't for this I would have given it a 5 egg rating.
Overall Review: Lost my first drive after 18 months - to use the warranty I have to send the drive to the manufacture. I can't erase the files on the drive since no computer can locate the hardware now. The material on the drive is of a very senstive nature such as "passwords", "account numbers" etc. so I would never risk the data being read by anyone therefore the manufactures warranty is useless to me.
Nice Thumb Dirve
Pros: Love this thumb drive because it can be password partioned and sensitive data be kept away from prying eyes. Also economically priced and very easy to partion. It has no cap to lose because it slips forward, and spins 180 degress to slide back inside it's case. I bought another drive prior to this one that was suppose to be able partioned, well the manufactuer misrepresented it, but Newegg was awesome and made it right for me. Can't go wrong buying from Newegg
Cons: If not careful you can format the drive by mistake it, does NOT ASK "are you sure" nor "data wll be lost if you continue", at least it was that way when I bought mine more than a year ago.
Overall Review: When I purchase another, it will be one of the RiDATA Twister drives
Pros: inexpensive drive -- new egg made it right for the misrepresetation that Transcend gave it.
Cons: This drive is advertised, (as are all the Jetflash V30 models) as being able to create a private partion with password protection. NOT SO - I contacted tech support at Transcend and they apoligized for the inconvenice it may have caused me but they informed me that NONE of their v30 models can be private partioned with password protection, yet the Transcend home page claims they can be.
Overall Review: If Transcend misrepresented this feature of their drive makes one wonder what else they claimed that made not be so. Newegg - is a wonderful place to buy computer parts.
