This review is from: Transcend JetFlash 600 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model TS16GJF600
Pros: For the better part of a year, I have used one of these routinely on computer service calls, commercial and residential. It's been plugged into perhaps 150 computers and laptops, rattled around in pockets and toolcases, sat on car seats in the hot sun, been jerked out of its socket abruptly, dropped, etc. In short, it's been used heavily. I've beaten a lot of USB drives to death. This one's a keeper.
Never a hiccup. Just keeps on ticking. Works on every system, whether ancient or new.
It's reasonably fast. Cap is lose-able but I haven't lost it yet.
Cons: None worth mentioning. Well, maybe the cap.
Other Thoughts: I like it. I'm buying another one on the theory I will surely lose it sooner or later.
Edit Oct 2016: I have now used this same drive for more than four years. Not one problem ever. Still going strong.
Pros: It's okay so far. I have restored a drive image to it from a failing drive to revive an older system.
The price was right for a system that's not worth much investment.
Cons: HDDStatus shows it's got a slow spinup time and as a result rated it at 30% fitness/performance but that's symptomatic of being brand-new. Probably not an issue.
Other Thoughts: Brand-new? Looks like it. Sealed in a regular-looking antistatic bag and utterly clean-looking. Manufacture date on the sticker is "01 SEP 2009" which means it's been on the shelf for seven years.
Electronics being what it is, the device is probably almost as good as the day it was made. Most of the degradation that occurs in electronic components is heat-related. Electrolytic capacitors do degrade chemically over time but not nearly so rapidly as they do in actual use. I'd say we're good to go.
