DO NOT BUY THIS USB KEY. The reliability reviews on newegg among other places is HORRIBLE. IF you want to gamble with $20, go for it.

Educate yourself!

This review nails it:

Quote :
"I have owned dozens of flash drives over the years, starting with my first drive, which was 64mb and cost nearly a hundred bucks (to give you an idea of how long ago that was), to some very recent and good drives from SanDisk, Corsair and others.

I have also owned PNY flash drives in the past, which were OK.

I have had flash drives start to go flaky, but typically only after years of service. Even the cheapo bottom end flash drives that I regularly use at work for temporary file transfers are reliable, if slow.

But THIS PNY drive is an utter piece of junk. It worked a sum total of ONE time before it went flaky. I was barely able to get it to be recognized on a PC the second time (I had to try three PCs; it was only recognized on one). By the third time I tried to use it: Dead. It's recognized as a PNY flash device, but with no identifiable memory attached.

I should have trusted the other very negative reviews I read.

Trust me: I have a ton of experience with flash drives. This one is utter junk. DO NOT BUY IT.

I know it's super cheap for the storage and performance it promises. But don't do it. Move. Away. From. The. Computer. Terminal. Now.

SanDisk has a 128Gb USB drive for about $5 more on sale. Go with that."

Personal experience from hobbangr:
I bought one that looks identical, 32GB, a few years ago. It really worked for a week before it crapped out on me just like the reviewer above. Their support team sucked too. vomit

Personal experience from akacinna:
Myself and 2 coworkers purchased the same model awhile back on a deal. Not one of the 3 worked out of the box. Just trash. They wouldn't even be recognized by the system and poking around through partition programs didn't yield any results either.

I usually stick with sandisk drives but the price seems right and reviews seem decent enough to take a risk on one

I once had a PNY 512mb that went through a cycle in the washing machine and it worked fine afterwards. In fact I still have it and it works to this day - not that I use it anymore though...

Wow, 144 of 243 1-star ratings (59% 1-of-5)! Don't think I've ever seen such a large portion of lowest rating with that many respondents for a product's quality.

I have only had good experiences with PNY. Their micro SDs are my favorite ones, much better than my samsung micro SD. Their SSDs are solid. I don't have a flash drive of theirs, but I bought this since I had Google Express credit and got it for $12 shipped.

I own this, and have had it for several months. It's been awesome to me.

I may buy 2 more to stock up. I often have friends/clients that need one in a pinch.

I know it's a few bucks less than usual price but looking at the reviews I'll pass this risk...the savings are not in the proportion of risk IMHO.

I've had this one for a couple years. My fastest USB flash drive by far. An equivalently priced Sandisk would be dirt slow.
