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.
Nice looking but poorly designed flash drive. After about a month it became noticeably warm to the touch after being plugged for one hour or more in a USB 3.0 port of one of my laptops (located close to the left front end of the laptop and therefore the drive often touched by the palm edge of the left hand), and stopped working altogether a few days after 6 months of use. It was rarely removed and always after the laptop had been turned off.
This not a rare or one-off defect. The companion Samsung BAR 64GB USB 3.1 Flash Drive (MUF-64BE3/AM) that I bought here on the same day stopped working about 7 months later, and there is a non-trivial number of reviews complaining about the short life of these devices made by Samsung -- pretty but worthless.
The product was decent while it functioned, however, It failed within the 5 year advertised warranty.
Amazon show that product support expired July 2018 (!!!), so I have attempted to claim directly through Samsung. Samsung AU won't allow me to do so as apparently I purchased a US variant of the product. They tell me to talk to the supplier.
I have had several flash drives over the years, and I have lost data because those drives were not able to withstand normal usage. This is the BEST flash drive I've ever had. I love it!!! Going to purchase another one (larger) for my family's photos.
I used this to hold movies and workout videos such as p90x, insanity and other workout stuff. It works well for traveling around or whenever you just want to change locations. I often use it with my tv, not sure how many other TVs have the capability though…
