    EXCELLENT QUICK PORTABLE STORAGE

    This flash drive is a very good storage solution for large files. These days the multi-Terabyte hard drives store massive amounts of data. You still need to back it up once in a while, in case of a hard drive failure. This device is a good solution. Even the huge video or ZIP files, 5Gb or larger, can be easily stored on this flash drive. Just remember to format it in NTFS. The good old FAT32 can't handle the big chunks. I've seen the other reviewers' comments about data getting corrupted. Well, when you're dealing with GIGABYTES of data being copied you need to be patient. It's not a hard drive. It happened to me too but then I've learned I need to wait until the red LED in the unit stops flashing. It may say on you screen "the copying finished" but there's still some activity happening. You should pull the flash drive out when that LED stops blinking. "Patience, grasshopper"

    Meets expectations

    My desktop PC recently had an overnight update pushed by the manufacturer. It took nearly two hours to boot upon completion and i was frightened that i had probably lost all of my clients information that i need for work. Once it booted i needed another option to keep my files safe. I moved all of my important documents to the USB 3.0 thumb drive and i can now sleep at night knowing that their information will be safe if my system ever crashes unexpectedly. It’s transfers information lightning fast and performs flawlessly. Never any issues and my documents are saved safely and quickly allowing me to rest assured that my information is protected and not in a cloud somewhere. I would highly recommend this particular unit to anyone seeking a cost effective alternative to cloud storage. Since I’m only saving PDF files, it takes up relatively little space and i back my information up every couple of months to be on the safe side. If your pc has slow boot issues and you don’t need a lot of space, this would be a low cost effective option to safeguarding your information.

    Decently Fast

    First and foremost, it's important to realize that you MUST have a USB 3.0 port on your device for this flash drive to operate at full capacity. On a system with an M.2 solid state drive running 16GB of RAM and an i5 7600K processor I can achieve 45 MBps (megaBYTES, not megaBITS) read/write speeds, which is just fine for me. That's about 85% of the speed at which information transfers from one harddrive to another within my system. I save a system backup image on this flash drive every week which is 45 GB in size and it takes no more then 18 minutes. This used to take several hours using an external storage drive

    Needed For User Backups When Hurricane Irma Hit

    As part of our immediate needs for Hurricane Irma prep, 2 days before the hurricane was scheduled to get us our upper IT management decided that I must go out and buy thumb drives for people to backup their data onto as needed regardless of the fact that they never felt the need to invest in a sufficient backup solution in the past 15 years I've been with the company. But I went out and bought the drives. None were used at all! Weeks after the hurricane came and went, I had a need to use some thumb drives to make bootable Windows 10 USB sticks. These drives worked perfectly for what I needed them for! I'd highly recommend these for backup or bootable thumb drives!

    PNY makes several different qualities of their USB flash drives, this style is the more durable one, you can tell just when you hold it that the plastic is higher quality than the compact version. I have had multiple sizes of these the main reason for buying this one was to have a USB 3.0 flash drive as I got tired of how slow it was taking to transfer files on a 2.0. This thing is fast, super durable and I paid a great price when I got it on sale. As I'm writing this review I see it is on sale for even cheaper than when I bought it, considering picking up a 128GB one to compliment this. Either way great product that works exactly as it should and even exceeded my expectations for a flash drive.

    Got a great deal on 64 GB

    I felt I needed a few more gigabytes of removable storage recently. I had a really well-built 2 GB thumb drive made by SanDisk. Compared with the recent releases of plastic feeling jump drives that had more than 4 GB of storage, this was a star. However, I was running out of space with all my college stuff taking up so much of it. I went to Best Buy with my reward certificate looking to get a new jump drive. I found this one on the rack for $19.99 on sale, but it was in the wrong spot. I was given the $19.99 price anyway, minus my $5 certificate. Overall, it does the job it was made to do and has loads of storage. I wish I would've seen one with a microUSB connector for my phone, but that isn't that essential.

    I grabbed this flash drive after standing about half an hours in front of the display where they kept all the flash drives, just reading and comparing one to the another. Finally I picked this out due to the price tag which seemed highly reasonable for the capacity it offers. I took this puppy home and put about 63gb worth of media for a relative's entertainment purposes. After testing it and noticing the simplicity of the item, I actually recommended this same item to 2 friends and they went ahead and purchased them. So far everybody is really happy with these drives. Can't go wrong. 3 out of 3 happy customers. 5 star rating.

    Incredible

    I caught this thing on a deep sale price, with a $10 rewards credit, I ended up paying three bucks for 64GB. My first PC had a 200MB hard drive that I paid hundreds extra for! 64GB seems to be the sweet spot in price/capacity right now. That's half the size of some of the SSDs you'll find out there, so a great way to add capacity to a low-end machine. Stick this in a ChromeBook, and you almost have a real computer! I use it for moving files between machines. I get read speeds or around 100MB/s for large transfers. Write speeds are much slower, around 20MB/s.

    It's the same as buying the sandisk Flash Drive

    BestBuy rotates between discounting the sandisk flash drive and the PNY flash drive. While the price of all sizes of flashdrives keep going lower and lower, the difference between pny and sandisk prices vary wildly from week to week. A sandisk flash drive might go for twice as much as a similar size pny one week and the next week, the sandisk is selling for half the price as the pny. The quality of the drives appear to be similar, but you should make sure you are not buying a flash drive that is a USB2. USB3 drives transfer data up to 10 time faster than USB2 drives.

    Great USB 3.0 for the price

    I was looking for a pen drive to put music on so I could have some back up music in the car. I figured I might as well go with a USB 3.0 pen drive. It works great, transfers data to and from at a decent rate, and as of yet have not had any issues. I've also used it to transfer videos from one computer to another (other computer doesn't have internet access) and this makes it a lot less painful to transfer larger amounts of data. There are other USB 3.0 drives that have faster read/write speeds but I found that for the price this was and for the use I was going to have for it, it works perfectly. I would recommend this product to others. Or items similar.

    What can you say about a flash drive? Not too much, actually. However, this one is a standout. I needed a flash drive to transfer some large files, so I went with this flash drive for its USB 3.0 interface and the memory size. When I received it, I was impressed by the build quality, its small physical size, and its transfer speed. Large files move quickly across the USB 3.0 interface to and from this drive. No stalls, no burps, just smooth, quick transfers. That was what I needed, and this little flash drive does exactly that, and more. I would recommend this to anyone that needs a great, quick, sturdy little flash drive. I have found none better.

    The Greatest picture/video space saving tool

    I have hundreds of pictures and files, all loading up my 'cloud' subscription to the point they wanted me to upgrade to more Gigs and costs of course. This little device ultimately saves me money and has more room to file away all I want to save. What's more, what I like best is organized and file named, it's easy to take with me in a shirt pocket, plug into any flat screen tv with a USB port and watch, select to show friends or clients (if I were working). Or download to another device. A couple of these little jewels will hold what two semi trucks filled with boxes of paper and hard copies, would take 30 years ago.

    Great little thumb drive!

    I have not done any speed tests, so I cannot speak to its absolute read/write capabilities. However, it has been excellent for the large files that I have used it with. It is relatively small and seems durable, but the sliding cover is my only area of concern. The cover does not fully enclose the port, potentially allowing pocket lint or other debris to get into the opening, but that should not be too big of a concern. I picked this up on sale for less than $30 and it was a great deal. Part of me wishes I had splurged and gotten the 128 GB size, but I haven't come close to filling this up so I guess that would have been overkill.

    I like the size and convenience of the drive. Nice and fast, with plenty of space. I would have given it 4 and 1/2 starts if that were possible due to the top. It protects the metal end of the USB stick, but does not cover the internal portion which is inserted. Since I put these sticks in my pocket quite often, I am certain I will end up with a piece of lint in there which I will have to fish out with a tooth pick or something similar (carefully). Otherwise, I really like this thumb drive.

    I am a community college student living 20-30 minutes from the nearest campus. I do not always want to take my laptop to and fro my courses, but often have to print out assignments done elsewhere. Not all locations have easy internet access, and this little dongle lets me take a semester:s work or assignments with me. I don’t have to worry about security because I can carry everything with me and don’t need to remember a bunch of passwords and protocols to use it!

    I found this thumb drive to be fast and easy to use for backup and transferring of files between computers when a full size hard drive isn't necessary. The sliding/locking function to hide/reveal the USB connection is also very convenient (as it is in other thumb drives like this) as with this design, you don't have to keep up and/or lose the caps. Also, for the price, you can keep a few of these around to backup smaller files to eliminate clutter on your internal drive.

    Fast, Reliable USB 3.0 Drive

    This was not my first PNY Turbo USB 3.0 flash drive. I bought this drive because I knew that it was fast and reliable. I recently needed to back up all of my critical files and documents so that I could upgrade my computer's operating system. I'm quite picky when it comes to USB drives. Not all of them are well made, have sufficient read/write speeds, and durability. This model by PNY, has all of the above. I work in IT and use these drives every day--in varying storage capacities. Each one is fantastic! You will not be disappointed! I know I will certainly be buying more of these drives from PNY!

    Great Flash Drives -

    I have more than a dozen of these Flash Drives and really love using them. If you are backing up important data make sure to back up onto 2 completely separate external hard drives or flash drives just in case. I had a WD external & a Seagate external both lose data that I did not have a copy of. These are great for copying & transferring data from a computer to an external hd while keeping a copy on these flash drives.

    Bought this item for someone who works both from home and office. When files are too large for cloud sharing, this super fast drive does the trick. They like the 3.0 speed and 64GB storage, and I like that it was on sale at roughly 65% off. Not much more one can say about a flash drive. Though, like any flash drive that uses the push-out design (rather than coming with a cap that you'll surely lose anyway), it does require somewhat of a delicate touch when placing in a USB port; nothing to worry about, just worth mentioning if you're a heavy user.

    I bought this flash drive to use in my car since I got a new stereo installed, also by Best Buy. I buy my tunes from iTunes and wanted to play my music in my car and only having a 2GB drive previously, I knew I needed much more space. I was looking at a 128GB drive since they were deeply discounted, but instead chose a 64GB and it definitely meets all my needs! Dragged and dropped the songs I wanted onto the drive and plays flawlessly in my car! So happy with my purchase and would definitely recommend this drive for anyone looking for a nice sized flash drive at a great price!
