    It works fine. I was hoping that Lexar had encryption software for it, but they do not offer any. I don't want to use third-party software because it's too difficult to set up and use. So if you are just looking for a fast USB 3.0 drive without encryption, this should be fine.

    Decent thumb drive

    I like the lower price and the slider feature on the USB drive, however, it was much lighter than I anticipated. That makes me think it is cheaply built, but we will see...Read complete review

        Comments about Lexar 16GB S73 JumpDrive USB 3.0 (Purple):

        I use this product to store my photographs from scanning my 4x5 film. It's really fast and worked instantly. It didn't pop up on my desktop, but it did on a different one, so I'm not sure why. But that could just be my settings or something. Otherwise, it's just what I needed.

        Very fast read/write

        Comments about Lexar 16GB S73 JumpDrive USB 3.0 (Purple):

        Wish I would of bought a couple more. Will add to next order. Well made, multiple colors. On a MacPro there are 4 USB 3 slots. Two on top of two. You'll need to put this into one of the top slots. If you put it into the bottom slot it's a little thick for the top USB slot to be used.

        16 GB S73 USB 3.0 Purple Lexar review

        By the cabbage eater

        from walnut, ca

        Comments about Lexar 16GB S73 JumpDrive USB 3.0 (Purple):

        love the price
        I use it for storing graphics
        works fast
        don't like to slide it out to use it, i think i prefer the ones that cover or twist.
        I like that it has a hole in for inserting a string to carry it around.

                    Fast and reasonably large. Good for transferring or backing up files of moderate size but for limited period (e.g. photos when vacationing)

                      Not a fan of the color but it works like a charm. it is fast and feels lighter than most flashdrives. i use it for programs and photos.
