First of all this is possibly the most stunning USB drive I own, and I own about 30, as time has gone by I have either been given them or bought them for work or projects.
The metal finish is great and gives the drive some weight, meaning that it is far easier to keep track of it, unlike drives from Cruzer which are typically as light as a feather and easier to lose than a screw.
The speeds seem to be accurate, letting me transfer documents, TV and movies quickly and easily across from my USB3.0 Desktop and Laptop.
I would highly recommend this USB drive over any other.
PLEASE NOTE: At the office I found that this drive was unhappy with an older MacBook Pro, however I have had no problems with the many Windows machines I own.
