To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Description said it was new but it definitely wasn't. I immediately noticed how slow it was. I ran a benchmark and realized this was not new at all. A complete piece of junk. (Nothing to do with the SanDisk brand - I always use SanDisk USB sticks and never have a problem - with new ones.) A lesson learned: never buy storage devices from 3rd party sellers - you don't know what you're getting.
The price was higher than I cared for when I first bought it, but the speeds are fantastic. Not any slow reads or writes. Everything has remained as advertised. Now I'm seeking a 128GB version a couple years later. It does become warm but..that's cool with me. Haha.
