3.0 out of 5 stars Very cheap and nasty build quality, but speed is as billed., 19 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lexar 8GB 100MB/s JumpDrive S23 USB 3.0 Flash Drive Memory Stick - Orange (Accessory)
The plastic USB plug is just horrible, and the latch is so poor that it can't stand the force of plugging it into a socket and usually retracts with a horrible snapping noise.

The speed appears to be as advertised (100MB/s reads seem to be possible on USB3, and it can max out USB2 at ~29MB/s) so it's useful as e.g. a boot drive in an application where you won't be plugging and unplugging it often.

I stripped the outer case off and wrapped the middle bit in heatshrink so I wouldn't have to put up with the latch.

Overall I suspect you could get the same speed but with better build quality for about the same money.
