Lexar? S73 USB 3.0 JumpDrive? Flash Drive, 16GB, Purple
Excellent Drive for the Price!
Bought this drive as a temporary file drive for work, plus run Fedora Linux on another partition. I'm an IT, so I transfer a lot of files - and Fedora helps me fix things that Windows can't fix.
I had no problems with the drive not being found - if it's brand new and can't be read right out of the box, you probably only need to format it.
I bought this drive when it was on sale - USB3 offered great speed, 16GB was plenty for what I need, and $10 is a steal.
I used it for one day, and it was excellent. I put it in my shirt pocket, went home, and forgot to take the drive out before washing my shirt... When I found it AFTER it had been through both the washer & driver, to my amazement, it still worked!
But then I lost it when I moved. So now I'm going back this afternoon to buy another... I highly recommend it!

I have only used this drive for a couple of months...as a backup source. However, I went to use it for a presentation...everything checked out fine. Put it in my briefcase and went to present...drive is dead. Like dead dead. I am one very unhappy camper who lost an account over this stupid thing. I won't be trusting anything with these drives...they are not dependable like some of the others. Do NOT buy this thing.

Only purchase this product if you wish to lose all data!!!
Error: Drive is not readable.
No matter which computer (Mac or PC) I put this drive in, it cannot be read. These are brand new! I've lost all of my files after I transferred docs from another Lexar flash drive to this one for more space.
