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

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 how it stands the test of time.

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

    USB thumb drives are so ubiquitous nowadays, it's hard to differentiate. Basically, I'm happy to buy from a trusted source like B&H Photo, to ensure that I'm not getting a counterfeit drive.

    The Lexar drive does have two nice standout features: it is wicked fast, because it's USB 3.0, and it has a retractable USB connector.

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

    Works according to specs. Nice retractable port and no cap to lose. The price was right so that if I 'loan' it to someone to copy the files and don't get it back it's not a big hit.

            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.

            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.
