B & H should discontinue this product for the sake of its customers. It is slow, very slow, you have to wait and wait two minutes for it to show its contents and then two minutes to open Avery single file or document. You may spend 10 minutes to access a simple file if you are opening several folders.

Recently I bought two PNY Technologies 512GB PRO Elite USB 3.0 Flash Drive from B&H PhotoVideo.com.  I was completely satisfied with this purchase.  Firstly, the delivery was prompt.  Secondly, the item delivered was very well packed and protected.  The items were new items as expected.   They worked well and functioned perfectly without any problems.  I am considering buying a few more of the same item in the near future.  I shall recommend this product and the supplier/seller of this item to all my friends and colleagues.     Well done, B&H PhotoVideo.com.

Fairly fast compared to my other same size USBs, not the fastest, but not slow either. Does not get hot (it will heat up but not to the point of being concerned. This is my 3rd PNY 512GB. I think very highly of it.

Nice Portable Backup Device

I purchased this drive as (yet another) backup of some important files on my computer. First out-of-the-box impression was positive. The body cover is metal and the weight adds a feeling of security. The large (256 GB) capacity insures that I'll be using it for many years to come. It also allows me to save multiple file versions and delete the old ones as I please, rather than deleting the files just to make room for new ones. I haven't speed tested it but, after backing up a couple of large files, it seems to be performing satisfactorily. I'm sure the USB 3.0 interface helps. Minor complaints: 1- There is no LED indicator light, but the drive is hot-swappable, so there should be no problems. 2- The slide function is pretty stiff. Maybe it will loosen up after a while. 3- No password protection. I don't plan on traveling with this drive, but still... it's 2018 folks. Stuff happens.

Reformatted to NTFS as window10 not like exFAT. I moved 13 full Blu-ray movies at speed of 175mb. Not scorching fast but 5 minutes to move 30gig file.............. So far happy.

This flash drive bailed me out in a time of need. It was easy to use and the transfer rate was great. I highly recommend!

Just What I Needed .....

I needed additional storage for images that was quick and nimble. This flash drive is both in a small device. The download speed is super fast and I can access stored file much quicker than an external hard drive. Perfect!

question

Will this drive work on Android OS powered smartphone using a USB-C convertor?
Asked by: Jrad F.
The PNY Technologies 512GB PRO Elite USB 3.0 Flash Drive B&H # PNPEU3PFD512 is officially supported only on a PC or a Mac. Android devices come in many different variants and its impossible to know which ones will work when trying to use a non-OTG compliant device like this one.

question

Why doesn't it work with iOS? How can I fix this?
Asked by: Jude
I wish I could provide an informed answer your question. That said, I'm running a Dell PC on Windows 10. No problems thus far on this end. Break a leg.
