  • It still works like a charm after session in washing machine.
  • I've been pleased with the reliability and performance of this drive.
  • These flash drives consistently stop being recognized by any computer regardless of the operating system for seemingly no reason.
  • Good read speeds but a little disappointing on the write side.
