    Average Flash Storage Drive

    Only reason I got this drive was because it was on sale at best buy and I needed a drive with big capacity. Flash Drives in reality don't need reviews because it's just storage but with storage capacity needing to be bigger to meet demands of saving important files so I really have no complaint in keeping quick files when I need to access them on this drive. Only thing I wish this drive had is USB 3.1 speeds because this drive is only USB 3.0 which is still plenty fast enough. In my honest opinion if you have laptops and desktops that have USB 3.1 speed I recommend USB 3.1 flash drives now as your go to for quick storage but you can't go wrong with USB 3.0 flash drives.

    OK - average speeds

    Drive was OK with average speeds - great price / value. Failed to be recognized in USB-3.0 ports after a few weeks; would only function in USB-2.0 ports at those speeds. Tried everything to no avail - never had this problem with other flash drives (I have quite a few). PNY tech support was very responsive; issued RMA quickly. It's there now, being evaluated - will see what happens. Seems typical for companies now to find no problems; try to shift blame to 'user error' or abuse. I'm waiting for their response. First ever failure on a flash drive - would think twice about buying again....

    A perfectly mediocre thumb drive

    Picked this up in order to backup some files for my girlfriend and the drive was pretty mediocre, managing only around 10MB/s on a USB 3.0 port. Admittedly, I was moving a ton of small files so I'm sure that didn't help, but let me confirm that it takes a long time to move 60GB of data at 10MB/s speeds. That said, the drive did work and the 10MB/s speeds aren't that far off from the advertised 20MB/s, so I'm willing to give it a good, solid "meh"..

    Good value but the case is weak

    I picked this up when it was on sale last August for $20. I've used it a lot and it's compact, reliable and fast, especially when using it in a computer with USB 3.0. I actually have two and they never leave my pocket. Disappointed that the case on this one has crumbled into pieces, though, at less than a year old, so that's why only 3 stars. It's still usable but the cover doesn't slide and catches in my pocket.

    This a good flash drive at a good price. It will do what you need with ample storage, but there's a reason it's one of the cheapest you find in the flash drive sections. It has a tendency of being unreadable at inconvenient times. It's only ever cost me time and patience, but if you can afford it I recommend getting a higher quality drive even if it has less storage. Dependability is the most important thing when it comes to external drives of any sort, so keep that in consideration.

    This product was not what I was looking for. I thought I could use it for password reset on my laptop because I forgot the login password. This product is not used for that purpose. I couldn't return for refund because the package was opened. What a waste of money for a senior citizen on a fixed income.

    Functional but not well equipped

    64 GB flash drive, does just that. However, The slide-out connector cover is awkward. You have to pull hard to lock it into place, and feels like it could break if you pull too hard. Perhaps it will get easier after some more use. Would also have liked some sort of dust cover over the end of the connector, rather than protecting only the metal exterior part.

    Not a good design, otherwise great drive

    It's a brilliantly-priced USB 3.0 thumb drive with 64GB storage in a clumsy package. The "retract" function of the plastic protecting the connector end works against you when trying to insert the drive. It takes some getting used to. I haven't had any performance issues with the drive itself. I suppose I can break the plastic off if need be, though.

    An amazing price on a great product

    The good: 64 GB and 3.0 USB speeds!!! The bad: The sliding cover is annoying because it won't lock in place when uncovering the USB plug. This makes it difficult to slide the USB plug into your laptop/PC slot because the cover will slide with it. Also, the cover offers absolutely no benefit because the internal component of the plug is still uncovered. If you have the opportunity to buy this during a sale, it's a great buy!!!

    I purchased this on sale at a good price, unfortunately, I had to return it because none of my computers recognized it, the replacement worked good. it was fast and transfered the files no problem. My only complaint is that the sleeve covering the USB port is a little awkward and slides loosely which makes it difficult to plug in to the back of my iMac

    Bought two and only one works properly

    I bought two flash drives. One has been working properly without any issues. The second flash drive worked perfectly the past 3 months but recently it has not worked correctly. The main issue is that my pc will sometimes recognize the flash drive and other times will not see it at all. Tried in different pc's with the same result. Will let you now what happens.

    This device is worth its price. Easy transfer files from your pc or mac within seconds. Software automatically downloaded and easy to configure. With 64 Gb of storage, you can easily transfer videos or photographs with ease. The sliding collar helps keep the USB connector free from damage.

    I have several drives, each with various GBs. This one was big enough, storage wise, to take care of some issues I was having. What I don't like about it is, unlike my other one, the printer I use often doesn't recognize it and that is the most frustrating part for me. Other than that, it is great.

    Fast and Reliable but Poor Build Quality

    There isn't much to be said about a memory stick. Some are aluminum. Others are plastic. This one falls into the latter category. Feels cheap, but it's fast. That's about it. Not something I'll be carrying with me day-to-day since it was purchased to expand my Wii U storage. Seems to work great for that purpose.

    Better quality control needed - 3.0 slow

    This drive failed within a week after receiving - I submitted back to PNY under warranty and they replaced it, adding my return postage to the initial cost. Great price, but you tend to get what you pay for - 3.0 speeds very mediocre, but the replacement is still working.

    GREAT FOR TRANSFERRING DATA

    I had obtained it for recording several recorded one-hour TV shows, for a friend. The thumb drive did not have the capability of transferring the shows, while a standard portable hard recorded the programs without any problems. As I say, it is great for copying data files

    Good 3.0 flashdrive for the money

    Good simple flashdrive. The first few times trying to slide the closure cover open was difficult as it snaps firmly open or closed. With some use it does loosens up but is still more difficult than others I have used.

    I bought this flash drive for a friend so we could put all of his iTunes music onto it, to be transferred to his newly purchased PC. Though the transfer rate was not as fast as I had expected, it still got the job done and everything went smoothly.

    This worked famously at first!! But unfortunately it started to mess up and now I can’t get it to play at all. Very disappointed! Now I need to purchase a new one! Hope I find a more reliable one.

    I purchased this drive on November 2nd. As of December 7th, the Drive is nonfunctional, and cannot be read in any of my many machines. since I bought this to backup security footage in portable form, this is problematic in extreme.
