      Good overall reliable flash drive

      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.

      Great for older units that only accept 2.0

      PNY - Attaché 128GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive---An excellent choice and will work in anything. 2.0, 3.0 flash drive ect. Note: Do you know if u have 2.0 or 3.0 device. This is how to tell---Look at the port (The flash drive or the Computer port) Black is 2.0, blue is 3.0. Some 3.0 Flash drives will state on the package "2.0 compatible" . NOT NECESSARILY TRUE---Save your receipt if the 3.0 flash drive doesn't work in your 2.0 device you can always return it for a 2.0. This is the biggest reason I like Best Buy. Open package and all---no problems with the return. Finally the device that I had issues with was a Digital to Analog TV converter box. (Don't laugh) 3.0 Flash drive package stated 2.0 compatible. When plugged in to the unit an error message came up on the screen "no device recognized". Returned and exchanged for a 128GB 2.0 flash drive--all is good works great. Happy to any question I can u may have.

      Way too slow to be useful

      I didn't pay enough attention to the few bad reviews about speed and I should have. I have over 10 usb keys of various sizes and brands and this is the slowest by far. I'm not impatient and I don't demand huge speed from my electronics, but 10 minutes to transfer 113 mb (comprising 3000 small files) is not acceptable. All my other usb can do it in 2 minutes and they are all 2.0. Just to erase 9 GB to return the stick tomorrow, it took 14 minutes! I don't know what the problem is. Is it that the few of us who are complaining about speed got lemons or are other customers happy waiting forever to get their stuff transferred? I'm leaving this review to let you know that this problem can happen (whether all usb keys have it or not) so be aware that you might encounter it too. I got this product at a huge discount. But even at $19.99 it's a horrible price for such a slow speed.

      Very Solid, Compact 128gb USB 2.0

      I purchased this to act as the entertainment library on a Raspberry PI 2B running OSMC (Kodi). The Pi has no problems addressing the drive and since the Pi is only USB 2.0, the cost savings over the 3.0 model was fine. The new Attache shape is about half the thickness of the old full size attache unit, and about the same as the old compact attache. The connector is metal, while the old compact attache was plastic. The protective sleeve seems to operate better than the old Attache design. I have 2 of the old design that are now very difficult to open/close because of heat warpage. The slight indentation at the rear of the new unit is probably supposed to help you grip it, but it is too small to be effective. Performance wise, it's faster than my 64 gb compact attaches, but not as fast as the Turbo usb 3.0 units (as expected.) I have decent luck with PNY flash drives, and Best Buy has them on sale often, so when I need one, I usually only have to wait a week at most to get a much better price. So, I would recommend this unit if you only need USB 2.0; the price difference between the 2.0 and 3.0 units when on sale is usually less than 5 dollars, so If you are buying for higher performance, I'd go with the 3.0 unit.

      I have several attache models from over the years. This newest model has become thinner, and the sliding sleeve is also thinner plastic with a better catch design. My older attach models have become harder to open/close as the plastic has warped from heat generated by usage. This design might not warp as badly. The slight indent at the rear I guess is to make pulling it out of the usb port easier- it doesn't. I purchased usb 2 solely because the device the unit was targeted to only supports usb 2 (raspberry pi 2b). It is slow, because it's only 2.0, but if you can catch them on sale, the price difference between 2.0 and 3.0 tends to be less than 10 dollars. I'd buy 3.0 only, if not for the quirk of this units planned usage. I have had fair-to-good luck with PNY flash drives. They work well, but are not as fast as the SanDisk models that are direct competitors. That said, they are also a few dollars cheaper on average so it's really a personal choice. I never buy any flash drive that isn't on sale.

      It’s a flash drive.

      What we have here is a classy PNY 128gb flash drive. You can call it an attaché if you want to, but let’s be real — the only people that call it that are the French and the pretentious...so basically just the French. It holds up to 128gb of memory. That’s flash memory, hence flash drive, which means that your memory is readily accessible as soon as you plug this bad boy into your computer. Unfortunately it’s only a USB 2.0 so the data transfer speed isn’t as fast as a 3.0, but hey for $20 can you really complain? In a day and age when memory is taken for granted and things are seemingly taking up more memory than they should it’s always handy to have a spare 128gb of storage on hand. I’m satisfied with my purchase. You should be too.

      As Good As The Cloud

      I have a lot of photos and documents that I do not want to lose. I have tried various "cloud" storage but find them slow to upload and download, and I do worry about the "unlikely" possiblitiy of a cloud storage server being hacked or material somehow being lost. Plus, having to look for wifi for anything other than my phone is a pain--and wifi quality varies dramatically. So I've found this little flash drive as secure and accessable as anything, and way faster than cloud uploads and downloads. I also feel the flash drive is the most private form of storage. I keep several and rotate them regularly, plus an extra one for travel purposes. I like the 128 Gig size as it accomodates a ton of photos. Although my devices are 3.0 capable, I've not found that much difference between the 2.0 and 3.0 flash drives--at least not enough for the extra cost of the 3.0. For my money, the 128 G flash drive is fast, easy, and secure storage for at home or away from home.

      I always have several thumb drives with me in my bag at all times ranging up to 64gb. I now added three PNY 128 drives. Why? Let's start with 2.4 TB of info on my 3 TB hardrive. Now consider I have 90gb of music to go on one PNY128, 80gb of pictures on another PNY 128, and 42gb of work files on my 64gb sandisk. The third PNY 128 will be used for books, two laptop backups etc. - What I like best about the 128PNY IS THAT IT ACTUALLY READS MORE GB THAN LISTED - WOW! That never happens, and it matches both my MacBooks - I also like the smaller profile when inserted. Sandisk is also a nice drive, but the silver match and more than expected space sold me and I then bought two more - on sale of course. Now let's see if a couple years from now if they hold up as well as my Sandisk are (all still working from many years ago).
