Rated 2 out of 5�by Mike Slowest Drive I've seen since USB 1.0
While read speed is decent (compared to a low tier Sandisk micro SD from 2008), the Write speed is atrocious.
CrystalDiskMark gave me the following for write speeds:
Sequential - 4.439 MB/s
512K - 0.272 MB/s
4K - 0.006 MB/s
4K QD32 - 0.009 MB/s
That's a quarter, a sixteenth, a seventh and a fifth of the write speeds of my aforementioned 2008 microSD.
The drive is nearly unusable for portable applications. You can load it up with movies and music for long term storage if you don't mind waiting all day for it to fill.
Seriously. Trying to work with this thing is like trying to drive a large and cumbersome Mack truck powered only by hamsters.
I have now spent the same money on a SanDisk Extreme. Same price and half the storage, but nearly two orders of magnitude faster.

Purchased this PNY 128GB Attache 3 USB 2.0 thumb drive at Office Depot for $60 ($40 off). Thought I was getting a great deal, but the drive has unrepairable bad sectors which will not let you write files to it. The files appear to be on the drive, but when you take the drive out of the computer and reinsert it, the files are gone. The drive also doesn't register every time you insert it into the computer. I tried both Windows and Mac machines. I tried reformatting the drive to different file system structures; I updated my OS's to latest revisions, so that maybe they'd be able to see the drive; I even attempted to repair the drive, but to no avail. It seems that this drive is not the deal I thought it was. Buyer beware.

Rated 4 out of 5�by Tired of chasing technology! Slightly less than expected
Maybe its just me but when I buy an item advertised to provide 128gb of memory, that's what I expect. When you plug this item into the USB port, and search "My computer" if provides only 119-GB of memory. That's only 92% of the advertised capacity.
