    About Me: 30 yr old advanced Windows PC user, student, video game and simulation programmer. * OS PNY 64GB USB is used on mostly * Microsoft Windows 7 32bit 2.10 GHz Pentium Dual Core Processor, using only USB 2.0 ports to connect the thumb drive to the OS. Since I my OS does not support USB 3.0 I cannot provide a comment or specs pertaining to USB 3.0 transfer rates. [ PROS ] - great price! Item was listed during on Cyber Monday for $26.00. - plenty of stock readily available - fast transfer/write rate between devices when using USB 2.0. Device averages transfer rates between 8MB to 16MG per second for USB 2.0 - Manufacturer claims device is 10x faster than USB 2.0 when using USB 3.0. However I cannot certify or provide speculative feedback. Most every other USB 2.0 sticks have read/write rate is 3MB to 6MB. - The device functions similar to a lipstick tube. Requires user to pull back covering to expose the port plug. - 1 yr limited warranty [ CONS ] - product registration not available - extended warranty not available - data loss not able to be insured - limited product replacement policy (applies only to device malfunction) and not user failure if manufacturer deems user caused the product to malfunction.

    Worked, but may not be compatible with all USB 3.0

    I bought this PNY drive along with some others as an extra to use for some general data transfer tasks, wanting the USB 3.0 speed upgrade to help move my tasks along--and it certainly didn't hurt that they were on sale at the time. But when I got the drive, the speed was hardly better than USB 2.0. After comparing speeds between this one and other drives of the same size and type, but of a different brand, there was just too much difference to justify keeping the PNY. I still like the PNY brand, and would recommend trying it on your system if it's on sale, as I think the issues I had were due to compatibility with my system, not any problem with the drive itself.

    Great bargain but no built in encryption

    I purchased this directly from a store and was told at the time of purchase that it had built in encryption software. It didn't, obviously, when I went to first use it but I was able to format it with BitLocker without any issues. My only complaint and the reason it only gets 4 stars and not 5 is that I wish the protective cover covered the very end of the USB plug. When fully down, it still leaves several millimeters of the USB plug exposed. That makes me a bit concerned about long-term durability and the potential for damage to the "business" end of it, especially if you are tossing this into a bag regularly. For the price and storage size though, can't beat it.

    This flash drive transferred a large group of photographs in a single batch quickly and easily. It operated as it should and there were no problems during the transfer or with the final quality of the photos. It also had a method for protecting the USB connector, which I find handy. I usually prefer SanDisk flash drives, but this one was just fine and the price was reasonable for the capacity. Prices for flash drives are too high for the state of solid memory at this point.

    Good for general file storage/portable files/bkups

    Bought as an external target drive for a HD DVR. Write speed apparently can't quite keep up with the feed from the DVR as there is occasional random pixelation/skips during playback, which does not occur when I connect a regular mechanical USB hard drive to the DVR box. Not a failure on the part of the flash drive as far as I can tell; I just bought the wrong device for my application. I will use it for other things; it is otherwise perfectly fine for copying files between machines, using for backups, etc.

    Does what a flash drive should do

    Picked up a couple of these cheap when is the store for something else. Been using them here and there and they perform as expected. I dinged it a star because I happen to prefer a drive with a cap not just retractable as it seems like the inside of the plug attracts debris like ablack hole. Overall I have been happy with the purchase, though the full price (I got mine at a deep discount on sale) seems a bit outlandish considering the basic nature.

    I bought this thumb drive to store media for work and to store backups of my various Windows libraries. It is working great so far. Exactly what I expect of a thumb drive. Plug it into the USB 3.0 port, system recognizes it, and I have a temporary 64 GB drive. Very fast because of the USB 3.0. Only issue I have is with the PNY case. It has a sliding cover that gets in the way when plugging it into the port. The price was too good to pass up for 64 GB. Plenty of room for all of your files.

    The drive is FAST and reaches (and sometimes exceeds) advertized speeds in Windows 7 and USB 3.0. Just like any other drive larger files move faster and smaller files move slower, but that's to be expected. Pros: Fast, light weight, big capacity options (mine is 64 GB). It does have a red activity LED, but it's very dim and is not bothersome at all. Also has a key-chain hole, but no lanyard. Cons: The materials and looks are somewhat on the cheaper side. Overall no complaints as long as it continues to work.

    Needed a laptop for some online classes,the sales associate was very good at finding out what I needed and what I didn't need or want. He was knowledgeable about different laptops and computers. If he didnt know the answer to one of my many questions he got it from others who were better versed in certain computers. He knew I was pretty much computer illiterate and took the time to show and explain things to me.

    I bought this to backup data such as pictures, music, etc. These are files that, if ever lost, can never be replaced. This drive does a very good job of that sort. Being USB 3.0 means I can get the job done a lot faster than with the older type drives. My only complaint about it is that - like all hard and thumb drives - it is advertised as larger than it really is. Since an allocation unit is a multiple of 512 bytes, it should not be treated as 500 bytes. How about some honest advertising?

    Good USB3 Drive

    Seems to have decent speed for USB3, though the speeds vary from Pc to Pc...I have 5 Pc's. Not sure, have not run tests, but it seems a tab slower in transfer speeds to my SanDisk USB3 Drive. I prefer SanDisk over other drives but got this at a discount that was hard to pass up. It is faster than USB2 Drives and I like the compactness and the retractable end. It can stick a tad and you have to use a little force to open it at times, but not excessive. It's a good bargain at the sale price..

    I have been buying PNY flash drives for years and this is probably my 10th drive. The transfer speed on the USB 3.0 is great! The form factor has changed with this version. It is now smaller than the previous version. I didn't give it a 5 star rating because I still think they can come up with a better sliding sleeve mechanism, but it's not really a problem. I just would like to see them come up with a solution that doesn't leave the USB port exposed when not plugged into a computer.

    I am using it right now, to download items from my computer. so far no problems. I am transferring photos, back up. I have a large number of photos to protect. I hope the 64 gig is big enough. I have purchased this brand in the past and have had NO problems. I feel if you back up photos or other items from computer to a hard drive, should you have some type of virus on your computer, that virus will be transferred to the hard drive. I feel safer using a flash drive.

    Good Product, What About a Lanyard?

    Product is fine, works great, good price, but I am highly mobile. I want/need an idiot string for something this small. Best Buy just does not follow up by carrying lanyards (neck, wrist, or pocket). Had no way to latch the drive to me, my pocket, or my pack. The sales team just looked lost. They even asked why they didn't carry them. They used to. Had to go to Walmart. Next time, I may just go to Walmart to begin with to save all the running around on something so basic.

    my previous thumb drive died for no reason -- san disk, so it was a good brand. I decided to get an 'off brand' this time since 'brand' doesn't seem to matter, that other one lasted 2 years, where I have had others last 10+ no problem. So I recommend trying this one out especially when it's on sale! *I would probably give 5 stars, but I haven't used this much yet. It does have very fast copy time though.

    I bought this drive for a handy, portable drive to backup photos, docs, etc. Holds my entire photo archive with plenty of room to spare, and it was instantly recognized and ready for use in my Windows 8 PC. Data moves quickly to and from the drive. I like the slide cover, but the only reason it didn't get 5 stars is that the USB port is open at the end and unprotected. As long as I don't drop it in the mud, I don't expect to have any problems. :-)

    I needed a thumb drive and had several options to choose from at Best Buy. I ended up choosing the PNY - Elite Turbo Attache 4 64GB USB 3.0 Type A Flash Drive because it was inexpensive and I plan to use it only to download pictures and videos from my Samsung S6.. I am very pleased with my decision as the PNY is fast and I have not had any issues. I feel that I got the best bang for my buck with this purchase.

    It's a Flash drive with nothing fancy except it's relatively quicker 3.0 speeds as advertised. Wished it's hole for attatchment to keychains was bigger and it's platic cover sometimes is hard to pull/push back. Otherwise, it's a good buy if you're looking for a simple USB Flash drive.

    Great little flash drive! Slides open and closed to protect the USB portion. 3.0 speeds, small enough to keep on a keychain. Only complaint- manufacturers used to include some sort of small lanyard or cord so that you could attach your drive to something and keep it from getting lost easily. This is NOT the case with this PNY drive. Had they included something like this I would have given five stars.
