    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 Slow USB Drive

    Posted

    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.

    Poor Transfer Speed

    Returning item ASAP. Picked this up due to the sale and value for the size, however the product is junk or the one I have has issues. Transfer speeds are garbage, not getting better than 350k write speed. Before you think it's operator error - it's not. Using this on a 3.0 USB drive, proper device configuration and have multiple other portable media drives/sticks/cards of same size that all transfer at correct speeds. The read speed and transfer from device is fine, however, the write speed is garbage. Exchanging for Sandisk as I've never had an issue with them.

    I can not believe the good reviews for this item. I bought two of these and wish I had not. They did transfer files VERY VERY SLOWLY on my Macs. I get a message when trying them on my Win 7 that they had to format before use and both showed 200 MB capacity. WHAT IS UP with that. I had to use my MacBook to format them and that took several attempts to get Win 7 to actually use them. I have been attempting to backup files most of yesterday and today before doing an upgrade of Windows but it is taking FOREVER.

    Man, talking about getting really irritated with a piece of electronics! Loaded most of my mp3 collection, spent hours tagging album art and editing tag info ONLY to have the thumb drive quit working a couple of weeks later! I had planned to save the "updated" mp3s to my network drive but the drive failed before I had that chance to do that! Will never purchase another PNY drive, terrible device!

    Very Poor Throughput

    I needed to copy 60GB of data. To my new internal SSD (Samsung), it took ~ 40 minutes. To my external 7200 RPM hard disk, it took ~ 2 hours. To this USB drive, it was over 40 hours. I bought this USB thumb drive to replace an external hard disk for backup purposes, but as you can see, it is a total failure, since it is truly 20x times slower.

    Incredibly slow write speed for its size

    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.

    I bought this item because it was priced at a close-out price. Once I began to use it, I found out why. It is extremely slow, and it is difficult to eject from my Mac. I suppose its problem is related to my computer being a USB 3.0 unit and it being a USD 2.0 device. Regardless, It is the last USB 2.0 device that I will ever buy.

    It might have a whole lot of capacity storage but the one I bought wasnt able to store videos. It wasnt even able to play one video. The day I returned it the customer service representative himself tried to play the videos I had stored and couldnt play. At least to store media files it wasnt good enough.

    this thumb drive is USB 2.0, which means it runs way too slowly for modern functionality. that being said, it's cheap. that's really the only benefit.

    It takes hours to transfer 15GB data to it. Also very slow in deleting files. I bought it for its large capacity (128GB) as a back-up USB.

    Thought this would be great for my needs but it turns out that it doesn't like to work with older Windows PCs. Had to eat it.

    This drive is junk and is so slow that it is unusable. 2 -3 hrs to copy a couple of Gb. Going in the trash. Maybe I can take it back.

    I bought this device to replace my external storage HD, it is very convenient and easy to use and transport. I will recommend storing stuff on PNY USB drive.
