Top positive review
Buy it based on your requirement!
28 February 2019
Before buying this USB drive, I was skeptical as it had extremely negative reviews. Everyone had commented about the speed of writing data to the disk, saying it was extremely slow.
The sole purpose of buying this pen drive was so that I could use it for music in my car. It was only logical that I’d want a cheap pen drive for everyday rough usage. And also one that was small in size. I didn’t want it breaking while connected.
After coming across this, and looking at the price, I purchased it, though it had negative reviews. For my purpose, this pen drive has performed exceptionally well! I have no problems whatsoever.
Before I write my review, let me suggest you people; before you buy, make sure you know WHY you are buying it. Are you looking to buy a USB drive for office purposes? Buy a strong metal USB drive, with good amount of speed and warranty. Are you looking to buy for general usage? Then compromise a bit on quality if cost is an issue. My purpose was to just transfer music to this and connect it to my car. And it has served me perfectly for it.
1. In contrast to most of the negative reviews, I am happy about the transfer speeds. I am a patient person, and I am not too concerned about transferring a movie within a minute. Don’t get hung up on specifics. A lot of things which you read, may not even be applicable to you. So choose wisely.
2. I am happy about the build quality. It’s plastic, but it’s hard.
3. I love the size of this USB drive. I got it specifically because I wanted a small one for using it in the car.
4. Yes, it gets extremely hot. Is it a problem? No. Is it normal? Yes. In most other drives, the materials used and dimensions of the product prevent the heat from reaching outside layer. That doesn’t mean heat isn’t produced. The reason why you can feel the heat on this is because it’s very thin.
Overall, I am very happy with the product. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to buy a cheap priced USB drive, which has moderate transfer speeds and moderate build quality.
