First of all, unlike the USB 3.0 standard, the speeds are exceptionally bad. I transferred multiple files to the USB and the write speed is only reaches 9 MB/s max. This is only slightly better than USB 2.0.
Also, due to the closed casing, this USB gets really HOT during use. Like you can even scald yourself on the metallic head!
All in all, it is on the relatively cheap end of the spectrum. So, you shouldn't expect great performance from it. I don't expect to last it as long as the old data travellers. Steer clear, if you want to get a good drive! Spend a little more and get a Toshiba or Sandisk drive.
