It doesn't mention it anywhere in the specs, but take note that this is NOT a USB 3.0 drive. This drive uses the slower USB 2.0, and is slow even as 2.0 drives go. For a drive this size the speed difference will be significant. If your expected use for a USB drive is to quickly copy files, grab the drive and go, this is not the drive for you. A 20gb transfer to this drive took about 2 1/2 hours. If you are going to actually fill the drive, plan on starting your copy before you go to bed--you might get lucky and have it completed when you get up, but to be on the safe side you should probably plan on waiting until you get home from work the next day.

128GB for $60, can't beat that!
Posted by: AWBrown from: GA on
This thing is a BEAST in the sense of storage space. 128GB USB for 60$ can't be beaten. If you want a USB that can hold this much let me tell you, GET IT TODAY!
The only two issues I have with this drive are:
1) It's a PNY (not a PNY fan ew...but totally irrelevant so ignore this! )
2) USB 2.0 not a 3.0. Meaning, it doesn't matter if you are transferring a total of 128GB on to it or what...will still take forever. 20GB will take you about two hours, so 120GB logically will take you about... half a day topos ONLY half a day yeah!
I would suggest this to a friend though purely due to the price.

The drive is pretty slow. Large files get up to about 6 MB/s. With lots of small files, the write speed drops to around 1 KB/s. That is very bad.
Can't recommend this one.

Incredibly slow write speed for its size
Posted by: JKfmh from: Framingham, MA on
I bought this to be able to conveniently back up my PlayStation 3, instead of using a clunky fragile external drive. It works, with one major problem: It takes 21 hours (almost a full day) to back up 80GB! An external drive connected to the same USB connection takes only an hour or two.

Very Slow USB Drive
Posted by: fonbr01 from: Long Island, NY on
I purchased this flash drive to replace an old Sandisk 1GB drive I've had for years. This drive was on sale at the store for $54.99, which is an awesome price. To my disappointment, the flash drive is EXTREMELY slow. I've tried it on several computer to be sure it's not my hardware causing the issue. The transfer rate of files ranges between bytes/s and MB/s. The drive cannot keep a consistent transfer rate. It's rated for USB 2.0, which is probably why it was on sale, but the average transfer rate is below 50KB/s, making it extremely poor for storing and deleting anything on the drive. I've tried changing the filesystem (came formatted as FAT32), but neither NTFS or exFAT was able to help. DO NOT BUY.

I love this flash drive
Posted by: RickRW from: Kansas City, MO on
This flash drive is fast and with 128 gig capacity, I never worry about running out of space. I use it to transfer project data from home to work and I love the product. I wish it had an "in use" light and key ring strap but that is just fluff.

Great capacity in small device
Posted by: dcwlk from: Indianapolis, IN on
I like that the plug is protected by sliding cover instead of a pull off top that can get misplaced or lost. Though the sliding head attempts to close when plugging it in, it takes practice. Otherwise, love the capacity in a small device.

Taking the place of a larger back-up external HD
Posted by: scoops639 from: Oxford, AL on
I was transferring data from an external hard drive compatible with my older Mac laptop to my new computer, which is a touch-screen PC running Windows 8. I ran into trouble with compatibility so had to use the old laptop as the mid-point between the old external and this jump drive. It held everything that I needed and the transfer completed pretty quickly, all involved hardware considered. The only thing that I'm not crazy about with this jump is that the thicker part on the end (opposite the PNY logo) moves back/retracts to reveal the USB connector. It caused a little worry that it could malfunction or cause wear more quickly than a removable top or flip-top. I won't be using it that much, since it's more for archiving, and maybe that's a good thing.

Good overall reliable flash drive
Posted by: NYYFan57 from: on
Bought the flash drive on a sale special primarily to store photos and videos taken with my digital camera. In today's market, you should avoid paying more than 50 cents per gigabyte for any flash drive. If the rate is higher, wait for a sale.
Actual capacity of this flash drive is 127,966,150,656 bytes, which is why I gave this product only an average rating for capacity. My rating is based on an apples-to-apples approach. Naturally, if you compare this product to some 16 GB drive, it has all the space in the world!
The good rating given for performance is based on a combination of speed and smoothness of data transfer. I did a trial run of copying a large file (1.52 GB) from my computer's hard drive to the unit. The initial transfer rate was sluggish (~ 3.5 MB/sec) but quickly increased to a level maximum of about 11.3 MB/sec. While this is better than the typical I've witnessed for moving data to and from flash drives, it pales when compared to the rate I've seen for moving a big file to my Passport USB hard drive (average maximum about 67 MB/sec; have seen it peak at about 80MB/sec). The data transfer was very smooth.
Try to avoid storing small files on this PNY. While the flash drive will hold them just fine, it's a highly inefficient use of this unit. Regardless of size, small files will take up a minimum of 32,768 bytes of space. You can reformat the unit to reduce the minimum (say 4,096 bytes), but you will pay the price in a slower transfer speed and longer time for your computer to read and recognize the drive.

Bought online and shipped quick. 2 weeks later I was reattaching the tip every other time I took it out of a port. Cheap enough with enough storage that I don't care that much, but come on 2 weeks.
