    Not Exactly Sure How This Works But ...

    I was skeptical when I purchased this because how could something so small work so well. So after bringing it home, I turned the package over in my hands for about 30 minutes before finally opening it. I put the thing in the hole on my computer and not 30 seconds later my computer said it was okay. Whew! I was really worried about that!! I had heard you could put files like music files and documents on this and they would stay on there until you erased them so I tried that first. I put my music file of David Allen Coe's "My Dog Left Me And Didn't Take My Wife I Hate That Dog" on it. It took a while because I wasn't sure how to do it but eventually I found that the "click and pull hard" method worked best. Once I did that, it magically appeared in another box all by itself. I must admit, I clicked my heels with joy and cackled a bit. I didn't really do anything else with it yet because I'm scared that I may be doing the devil's work by moving things around so I just keep the stick in my pocket for safe keeping in case I'm ever somewhere and somebody really wants to hear that song and I can pull the stick out of my shirt pocket as the angels sing and a bright light shines on me and everyone can exhale as we do whatever we have to do to hear the song. It's a miracle from God!

    Fast even on USB 2.0

    I knew my existing USB drives weren't using anywhere near the theoretical capacity of USB 2.0 (I'm getting 5-6MB/second write, 20-22 on read), and guessed it was the drive, not the bus, slowing things down. So, when I saw this on sale, I decided to try one. I was right: I didn't get the 70MB/sec read speed, even though that's theoretically possible. But I got about 32-33, which is a 50% speedup. And I got the full 20MB/sec write speed advertised. I was copying big files, on the order of 50-200MB, and the speedup may not be as dramatic copying small ones: I've read that the design of these "super fast" drives is optimized for big writes. If you have videos, or other huge files, that you need to carry around, these will pay for themselves quickly in the time you don't have to spend waiting for a copy to finish. The only minor nit I would pick is that I like drives with a cap over the USB plug, so they don't pick up pocket lint and other dirt. But it looks like I'm in the minority on that, because it seems like just about everyone has "gone retractable". And I've already recommended this one to friends and clients, so I definitely "would" ;-)

    March 11, 2016 TREX These thumb drives are great to say the least. There processing speed is faster than my computer, smoking fast, the quality one can feel right out of the package, the external casing is tough and going to hold up, the size is perfectly formed, compact but not stupid small, unlike many brands I have purchased. The sale pricing was the best I had been able to find, please note I was searching for quality products. I bought all of them, even one that was not the exact one on the sale, it was a newer version and being a 128 was a good deal more cost, they chose to override it for me. That's service and it feels good not to be jerked around, getting told we don't have that, you can go to another store, or order on line. I don't want to hear that, ever. If you have a sale have the product or make it right. Which is exactly what Best Buy did without question. I hope to catch them on sale again. Though I bought several, I would double up this time.

    Erratic performance

    Posted

    Maybe I just got a lemon but the write speed of this USB 3 flash drive only occasionally & briefly was any better than the SanDisk USB 2 ones I have. Read speeds sometimes were great; other times no better than for USB 2. Used with a 2012 iMac with USB 3 ports, BlackMagic Disk Speed Test confirmed what I was seeing in normal use: Write speeds varied from a respectable 32 GB/s down to 6 GB/s or less. Read speeds varied from a very impressive 160 GB/s down to 16 GB/s. I tried using it as originally formatted (FAT-32) & reformatted with a Mac-friendly HFS+ partition, but there was no improvement. I installed a fresh copy of OS X 10.9.3 on it to see how it would work as a boot disk, but while it would boot up OK, response was so slow that it was almost unusable -- actually worse than with a 32 GB SanDisk USB 2 flash drive! I gave it a "Good" rating for Value for Price only because I got it on sale for under $20. I will be returning it & getting a SanDisk Ultra as a replacement.

    Inexpensive, but that's about it.

    Purchased this as a replacement for another USB 3.x flash drive that has a retracting connector because the retracting mechanism was exhibiting problems. I was worried it would stop extending and I wouldn't be able to get the data off that stick. This USB stick also has a retracting connector but it's the cover that retracts and not the connector itself. The problem is that this USB stick randomly disappears from Windows while it's plugged in. There appears to be no rhyme or reason to why it's doing it. I'm hoping it's a faulty stick. Be warned. Too cheap to bother with return/exchange or complaining to PNY. Guess I'll have to try elsewhere for another USB 3.0 flash drive.

    Overall, it's a USB 3.0 flash drive that does what it should. I do find that the formatted available space is a few hundred MB less than a SanDisk branded USB 3.0 flash drive that I also have but that's a minor complaint. I do find read/write speeds for this drive to also be a slight bit slower than the previously mentioned SanDisk flash drive. Also, this is my 2nd one following an exchange for the first one I purchased. It mysteriously started randomly disconnecting on all of my computers after being plugged in. No rhyme or reason as to why. Happened after a week or so of owning it. This replacement one seems better so far but it's only been a few days.

    RUNS FASTER THAN A REGULAR 3.0

    Needed a USB Flash for Summer Classes at College... I can tell it is faster than other USB 3.0 Flash Drives I have used. I have a Gateway NE 722 Series Laptop, and I can transfer files at 33mb per/sec using the PNY Turbo Plus 3.0. On my other USB 2.0, I only transfer at 7mb per/sec. My gateway laptop is a little slower than others, because I think the motherboard is a little cheaper. I have seen other laptops transfer at 2x the speed using my USB 2.0 on their computer, so my laptop is bit slower at transferring data. All that being said, the Turbo 3.0 is over 3x faster than a 2.0 on my machine, using the 3.0 USB plug in. I also have a new Western Digital 2tb External Drive - USB 3.0 that I just bought at Best Buy, and it transfers at about 89mb per/sec, so I think the Flash USB 3.0 transfers data just fine, for what it is.

    Cheap, Write speed much below USB3 standards

    Very Disappointed. USB 3.0 Write speeds should be no less that 80MBps, MBps is MegaBytes not to be confused with Mbps Megabits which is 1/8 the data) per second and should average 120MBps - 160MBps even 200+MBps on higher end drives, Even USB 2.0 devices should transfer at 30MBps. USB2 is rated for 60Megabytes per second Maximum transfer rate and thats 15 year old technology. This drive MAX write is 20MB per second. basically it 33% as fast as a maxed out USB 2(15 year old stuff here), if your looking for cheap and don't care about transfer speed or only have USB2.0 computers this drive is fine, if you want USB 3 speed, buy another drive. The speeds are apparently listed on the website now. Didn't see any of that when i bought mine.
