    Did not work well at the start

    PNY hasn't never been the best product for me and yet I still buy them thinking they have improved over the years. Hence this recent purchase is some what problematic right away. Just FYI: my intended purpose of purchasing this flash drive is to give a friend all the pictures taken during his wedding, both raw and jpeg files. Purchased this particular flash drive because of the size, availability, and price. No complaints there. The issue is some what a compatibility issue with my PCs. My newer PC has USB 3.0 all around and this flash drive would drop to 0 MB/s at each one of them while transferring about 40-50 MB of raw photos. There are other flash drives out there that can work with USB 3.0, but have a USB 2.0 transfer speeds. I was baffled on why it does not consistently transfer files and have transfer drops in my newer PC. I went on to my other PC that is a bit older and has USB 2.0 ports. Here I can see the value of this flash drive where is working fine. I do understand that this is a USB 2.0 flash drive, but it should not be dropping transfer speed or crashing and ejecting itself from the PC. Personal recommendations: For those who are just looking to store small files such as word, pdf, and jpeg files that's about 10MB in great quantity then this is okay, but might run into drop transfer speeds and compatibility issues. Power users who need a flash drive that need to transfer huge file size and is compatible with both USB 2.0 and 3.0 then skip this product or look for a PNY USB 3.0 flash drive. Also don't let the price entice you to buy this if you're a power user (at the time of purchase this was priced at $10.99).

    Turns into Read Only Cache

    I used this drive to back up critical files for a research project involving audio and video files gathered from the internet or on location. I liked the idea of having more than enough space to store files for transfer between a laptop used for field research and a more powerful desktop used for compiling the final report. At a point after six months using the drive to store the research, I forgot to remove the drive from my desktop computer at shutdown. The next time I started the computer, the drive was locked in a read only mode, meaning I couldn't edit the files on the drive or add new information from the field. Lots of information is available on how to correct the "PNY Read Only" problem, except none worked. I even researched how to unlock the "computer administrator" login for Windows 7 thinking I could supersede mere "user" permissions assigned to the format and used to create the files. Turns out PNY was it's own "administrator." I've sent the PNY, my $39.95 plus tax, my last research update, and the PNY "permissions" to computer recycle heaven, where hopefully a better manufacturer will change the matter molecules into something more universally useful.

    Good Price But Very Slow

    I got this because I needed to put 45GB of Exchange/Outlook mailbox data on it for a lawyer, along with some random Office files and such. I was looking for the best price per gigabyte I could find without going with an absolute unknown manufacturer because I was strapped for cash at the time. It held all of the data I needed to put on it, obviously, but it took an extremely long time for the data to transfer. Honestly, I was kicking myself for not ponying up for a better drive while I was waiting for it to finish. So, if you are looking for fast data transfers, this isn't the drive for you. If you just need the capacity, have plenty of time to watch a progress bar and are short on cash, this is for you. I did like the single piece, retractable design of the chassis. I didn't have to keep track of the drive cap which can be a pain. It appears to be relatively sturdy compared to some drives in the same category I've worked with over the years which is a plus.

    States 64gb but not really

    Okay, so I was in the market for a flash drive with a decent size to move pics from an old computer and keep safe until I finally get the new one, as a backup more or less. Saw a great deal for this drive and went to the store. That in itself was a pain which should be it's own review but that's for another day for another forum. Purchased and took it home. Put it into my PC and formatted and transferred the pics into the flash drive. Thinking I had way more space than I did, I decided to add some more files but noticed that the drive was almost full. Went to look at the storage and it said that 24gb of 32gb of useable storage had been consumed. Thought it was weird. Found some videos on how to reformat the drive in order to get the full storage capacity. So, I went about moving everything from the drive back to the PC. Went through the step by step instructions and nothing happened. The drive was still only showing 32gb, I looked at the drive and made sure that it was the 64gb and sure enough it states it on the side. Unfortunately, the formatting made it only have 50% of the actual storage capacity be useable. Tried several methods and nothing, but unfortunately by the time I caught this, it was too late to return to the store. Completely disappointed and will not recommend to anyone much less a friend.

    Acceptable 64gb USB2.0 Flash Drive w 1 yr warranty

    This drive is perfectly adequate. However, note that it is made with relatively inexpensive materials and only comes with a 1 year manufacturer's warranty (other flash drives on bestbuy.com come with a two year or five year warranty and a few come with a "lifetime" warranty). The shell appears to be made entirely of plastic to include the connector (previous drives I have owned had a metal connector) . I am using it to listen to music in my car so I don't plan to frequently connect or disconnect the drive. It should be perfectly adequate for that purpose. I'm not sure how durable the drive would be if used for data transport where it was frequently being connected and disconnected. However, it seems perfectly acceptable as a semi-permanent data storage device for my car. Again, the drive seems to work acceptably; but, cannot attest to its long term durability. The lack of a metal connector coupled with the manufacturer's decision to only provide a one year warranty for this device makes me suspect that it may not be as durable as similar capacity drives that use a metal connector.

    Failed after 2 weeks, after safe ejections each and every time and about 400 scans of receipts, one at a time spanning 30 years. During failure it failed to recognize the drive, and asked if I wanted to reformat the USB drive, which I elected not to, so I could pursue some type of data recovery. Lost all data, contacted manufacturer technical support immediately, who said it occurs from time to time, nothing could be done, referred to me to a software supplier of data recovery software, who never followed up to send the free download, after signing up for the demo software. Nonetheless I tried 2 additional different software recoveries, and both could not find the drive. Best Buy did exchange the drive for a different supplier, which made the bad experience and 2 weeks of lost time scanning and organizing the receipts less painful.

    A Reliable and convenient Portable Storage Device

    I've been using Pny flash drives for at least eight years, and none has yet failed on me. They are primarily notable as being no-frills and inexpensive drives. While they were notably bulkier when compared to such familiar name-brands as Sandisk and Kingston, they have become over the years quite a bit slimmer, and comparable in their silhouette to those much more expensive flash drives. They however remain no frills in that you do not have built-in pass-word protection, but you can of course pass-protect your data using the software encription built into the creation software such as Microsoft Office or Adobe. Besides, the advertised storage space remains fully available for your use. On the whole, an excellent storage device.

    This was the first time that I purchased this brand PNY - Attaché 64GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive. I bought a new computer and needed to transfer all of my files and years of photos from the old computer. The Best Buy tech said that he thought all of my photos and files would fit on the flash drive. I was skeptical because I had years of photos and videos on my hard drive. The Best Buy tech was right, so there I was wrong :-) all the files, photos and videos moved perfectly from the old hard drive to the flash drive and then onto my new computer hard drive. I'm glad the Best Buy geeks know what they are talking about. Thanks guys

    I wanted to install some hidden object game collections to this flash drive so I have some games to play while I'm on the train. So this was on sale during the flash sale at an even better discount so I bought it. The write speeds for USB 2.0 seem a little slow and aggravating installing stuff to it. Maybe that's not what the intended use for it is but nonetheless it's working. It will just take awhile to install. Could have installed the games to an external hard drive but it's too big and bulky to do so, so this PNY 64GB Flash Drive does the trick. Already did the Steam install test - No Good, won't work and times out due to slow disk writing speeds. Needless to say you can use this flash drive for different situations, but your results may vary.

    No doubt, I lack the technical expertise to evaluate this flash drive – many reviewers provide excellent spec information on the quality parts and superior processing performance of the Cruzer. But I do have the hands-on expertise to say it is an awesome piece of equipment. File-sharing services may eventually make these drives obsolete, but for those who love securing their data on something they can see and hold, the SanDisk is outstanding. I use these little beauties to back up my computer. I can also easily download my huge graphic files to share with colleagues.

    Decent drive but a real challenge to format FAT32

    Posted
    ThisStinks
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    Bought this drive to use for MP3's in a Ford Edge Sync system. The drive needs to be formatted to FAT32 in order for Sync to be able to use it. Normal windows format utilities will not format this drive FAT32 (in Windows XP or Windows 7, I'm assuming because of the size of the drive). Google search for HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool, that program will format larger drives to FAT32 easily (use the full format though not quick format, I did the quick format first and a 64GB drive only showed up as 31GB) Hope this saves someone the time I wasted trying to find a solution.

    I bought this PNY Flash Drive to back up my music files and to also listen in a MP3 player. It has enough storage space to add more files if I need to. I have not had any problems with the Flash Drive and it seems to be working as it should. The sliding cover helps to protect the USB port from damage when needing to tote it around when not in use. The price was good for the amount of storage it has. It was just what I needed in a Flash Drive. Best Buy seems to have in stock what I need when I need to purchase any electronic item.

    Worst Flash Drive Around

    This was the first flash drive I bought in a while as they usually break on me. I had around 64gb to save so I thought I would try it again. I was so careful with it to ensure it didn't break. Than what I didn't even think could happen did. My computer died while data was transferring, It just needed to be plugged in but the flashdrive could not be found after that and neither could my data. I called the company and Best Buy, no one could find help. I had it for 2 days before this happened. Very disappointed and fusterated. I will never buy this name again.

    So far, great as extra Wii U storage

    Although Nintendo recommends a disk-based HD to expand the storage on the Wii U, I decided to expand my Wii U storage with this USB Flash Drive for space savings (fairly low profile) and lack of cables and extra power a disk-based HD will require. That said, this drive has been great so far, doubling the storage the Wii U came with. Games from the flash drive load quickly and it is indistinguishable for the user even that the game is on the flash drive. I will monitor whether using the USB drive will be a problem in the future, but was a great, cheap way of expanding the Wii U memory.

    I can't believe how poor the selection of USB flash drives was in store at the Anaheim location. This was the only one with more than 16GB of storage, and it's only rated at 2.0 speed. I needed a drive immediately, so this was the only option that made any sense with my time constraints. It took a few hours to transfer the photo files I needed it for, but it worked with no issues, and all of my files got transferred. With that said, look for a a USB 3.0 drive if possible for faster speeds.

    I junked the USB, did not format

    I first copied my file to this USB after receiving the stock. Next time when I used, it became read only and prompted for format. This usb drive did not format on 3 different computers I used, or different formats like fat, NTFS or exfat. I could not return since I had personal info on the stick but could not delete. So I had to junk the USB to buy a different brand such as SanDisk. Will not buy PNY again. I had USB bought 10 years ago still working. This is my first time with this trouble.

    Inconsistent Quality on these

    I suppose that's why they are being discontinued. I've had ones that ran good, some run fine but my last one runs so slow it's only good for backup storage and not playback. I've had outstanding luck with all PNY drives under 32 Gig but it seems that over that Size, they get glitchy. I had a 128 that stopped storing data at 80 Gig. It would still read back what had been written to it but you could not add any new files even if you deleted some. Stick below 32 Gig with the PNY's and you will be just fine.

    Its not the fastest but as most things are download then its good for that transfer or file holding...watch out though because if your going to be using it for a bios flash or windows install it wont work because you can only use a maximum 32gb flash drive for that....I found out the hard way...so now have this for files and 32gb for flashing the bios and initial windows install for new builds...shame no software ever seems to mention that when you build your system.

    Best Buy has great reps. Always very helpful. Also purchased. A 7" Kindel Fire tablet because my Samsug 10" tablet had to be sent back to the factory. A week before the the 1 year warranty was to end, a blue line ran across the screen. I was tild to contact Samsung and mail it back to them for repair or replace the tablet. Still waiting to get it back, which is why I purchased the new Kendel Fire. It's a nice 7" tablet that can easily be carried in my purse. Love the great service that Best Buy offers.
