    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.

    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.

    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.

    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).

    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.

    With no caps to lose, you'll love the modern look of the PNY Attaché. Instead of using a traditional cap to cover the USB connector, the drive has a sliding collar that easily glides open and closed. Simply push back the sliding collar and insert the connector into your computer's USB port to transfer files to and from your computer. The PNY Attaché is sleek and durable; small enough to slip in your pocket, purse, briefcase & etc. From the classroom to the boardroom, it's a durable and attractive electronic accessory. It's lightweight and small in size, but big in capacity. Rest assured all your content will be safely secured on the PNY Attaché flash drive, which offers capacities up to 128GB. The Attaché USB flash drive is perfect for storing large files such as, movies, videos and music. Imagine this: with a 128GB Attaché USB flash drive you could be carrying 45K+* photos in the palm of your hand!

    128GB for 27.99 AWESOME DEAL!! 30MBs Write

    Posted
    Prerunning

    This was only 27.99 at my local Best Buy. It didn't say that it was on sale or a special, at 27.99 this is a spectacular deal and I was very surprised. It performs well. The average write speed is between 15-30mbs on my USB 3.0 and about 5mbs on USB 2.0 in ExFat format. It will probably perform faster if formatted for windows only(ntfs), mine is formatted to transfer between PC and Mac. Its definitely not the fastest flash drive, so if speed is your main concern I would go with something with full USB 3.0 performance. But If you're like me and just need moderate performance and high capacity for cheap, THIS IS PERFECT!

    I'm very fond of Android and it's ability to support external devices via an OTG cable, with this 128GB flash drive it has allowed me to more than double the space available on my device! I often take a lot of photos and i'm always filling up my Micro SDcard, with this flash drive I'm able to seamlessly make backups and offload the photos and other unnecessary files to free up space on my phone. Pros: - Great little flash drive for making quick backups from your PC or mobile device. -Good price! Cons: My only con would be the overall build, it's generally built well, but I do wish it was built out of a more premium material then plastic. Performance 9/10 Build Quality 8/10 Overall 9.5/10

    I purchased this 128GB flash drive on a Best Buy Deal of the Day special. I am so happy about how large the capacity is and how convenient it is to take anywhere. I have put music, video games, documents, and pictures on it with room to spare. If you have a car with USB capability, this is way more convenient that plugging your phone in. I have a New 2013 Honda and use this for music via the USB connection in the center console. I love it!!!! If you are in need of large storage capacity, this is the item for you. I highly recommend this. I am going to get another one soon. I wish I would have purchased 2 of these when they were on the Deal of the Day. Highly, Highly, Highly Recommend!!! Sooooo many uses

    Cheap Flash Storage

    Got two of these at two different times. Each was on sale for $60. A coworker of mine who used to be a BB employee said that price was below what he could get on his employee discount. Nice! Good capacity (119GB formatted on Fat32 or NTFS). Read and write are also good. I really like the fact that it didn't come with any bloatware like other USB flash sticks. I use the NTFS formatted one for on-the-go storage. I've used it to read and write on computers that run Mac OS X, Windows, and Ubuntu. I use the FAT32 formatted one as a YUMI multiboot disk with my fix-it tool sets for Windows and a live CD of Xubuntu. No issues whatsoever. I would really recommend this for anyone especially if it goes on sale.

    I am not real tech savvy...I was in the process of purchasing a new truck on some of the new ones do not have CD players anymore and was needing to transfer a lot of my music from Cd's to USB --(young people don't laugh out there) now in the process of doing that but was told that I needed to format to FAT 32, which Windows 10 does not give you that option as one reviewer has pointed out, had to find software to get this done. I am running with the savvy pack now, running around with just a USB, instead of a lot of Cd's in the truck. I am always a step behind the times. USB works great.

    I picked up a number of these for gifts and to add to my pile of portable temporary backups. With 128GB of space, they can hold more music or video than my granddaughter can watch on a trip, even if I drove for a week. Also handy for game saves on her laptop, leaving more space on the internal drive for games. That alone makes the driving more pleasant and the USB is definitely worth the price. No problem with read/write cycles over the last few months.

    I love it! I was looking for this all over Best Buy & got the last one! I essentially only bought it for my iPhone 6 so I can transfer pics & vids to my comp, but it's also useful for my school work! I have a variety of flash drives on had. It just takes long to upload b.c of the amount of pics & vids that I have, which I can understand, other than that, works like a charm! P.S: I always have it at hand at all times by attaching it to my keys & other knick nacks

    I am very satisfied with my black PNY - Attach128GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive. I bought it to act as a back up storage for computer and any assorted items I scan. The files I have moved over were done with ease and I am still in awe of how much space I have left. I was pleased with the price- I bought it on sale and it was well worth the $30 I spent. The only fall back is I can see the retractable case that protects the USB port getting stuck or breaking off in the future but since that is not essential to function who cares. If that is important to you then just be aware it can be hard to slide at times.

    My old PC was running super slow and I had used up most of the storage. I have a lot of pictures of loved ones that I didn't want to lose. Pictures of people and my four legged kids that have long since passed. And yes I have them saved in the clouds but I wanted something physical as well. This little guy was able to handle all my photos, documents and over 1000 songs. I was also able to do a windows easy transfer from my old computer to my new one. I still have room on it should I need to add more. It's now tucked away in a fireproof box. I'm very happy with my purchase.

    Before you purchase this item, see if it is on sale. With the right sale and timing, you can get this mighty USB Flash Drive for an insane. I have used this for 6 months and I have not come across any problems. It is wonderful to be able to store my files on it when I need space on my laptop and I don't have time to burn files off to a DVD. I've purchased two additional flash drives to have just in case I need to give them as gifts! This is how good this flash drive is! Again, if you can wait...wait for when there is a sale on it.

    Put a full feature film DCP on this little guy in lew of a hard-drive, sent to a movie theatre in NJ and they were able to ingest it into their projection and present the film with no hiccups! Sound quality and visual quality were fully up to standards! Was awesome and much less expensive way to save on hardware costs and shipping costs! Reliable, super high capacity and durable as well! I love it!

    You can't have too much storage available. You never know when you will want to copy some files off your hard drive to clean up space - but you aren't ready to get rid of them yet and you don't want to burn a disc. This usb flash drive is perfect for that situation. With plenty of storage space, you can back up files, copy files, store files (you get the idea). It does load a bit slowly, however. So, don't plan on filling the whole 128 gig in one sitting (unless you have some drinks and food on hand, as it would take you many hours). But for quick hits of 3 - 6 gig plus files, it fits the bill.

    Simple product that does what it's supposed to do. Got it on sale for 20 dollars and couldn't be any happier. Plenty of storage on the flash drive for whatever your needs are for it and PNY is a great trusted brand. Only flaw/con that I can get out of this is that it's not a 3.0 flash drive so the transfer speeds is not as fast as I would like it to be but hey for 20 dollars for 128gb of storage, I'm satisfied!

    A great storage device that is both easy to use and convenient in its small size and portability with a memory capacity to rival some of the laptops and tablets available on the market. Ease of use is virtually guaranteed with the USB drivers that auto-launch, so getting the device to work on your machine is never in question. Its true versatility is in its collapsible design, allowing it to take up very little space, be that your pocket, or your backpack. I was blown away by the amount of memory I had available to me, almost as much as my tablet.
