This drive is really fast for regular things, like holding files, but if you plan on making this an OS boot drive, you have to use a live boot OS. You cannot really install the 'normal' version of the OS. I first tried installing desktop Ubuntu on the drive, and after I got that working (was fairly difficult) the OS would hang occasionally waiting for the drive to catch up (slow random data access, see link for benchmark) So I formatted and installed the live usb version of ubuntu, and now it works great! I'm guessing more data is cached to ram with the live boot version. I plan on partitioning the drive and multibooting various OS's. Oh another sidenote here. Windows 7 cannot boot from a usb 3.0 drive, so you will have to use win 8 (if you want portable windows).

Extremely good price for 128 GB flash drive with USB 3.0. Works perfectly fine with my Macbook and Smart TV, and it could be easily reformatted to NTFS if needed. Super fast file copying via 3.0 from SSD of my mac compared with my old 2.0 USB flash drive.

What i dislike is plastic body of the drive. This plastic is so cheapish! Espesially silver part. Ugh! Don't even think of neat look if you're going to keep it somewhere in your bag with keys, pens, books, etc.
Sliding cap feels flimsy. I think it will break in a few months if using frequently.
Also, this product has only one year warranty, which looks kind of suspicious. I've seen 5 and 10-year warranty on a similar flash products, but, you know, just sayin'.

I recommend this product if you need much storage and your budget is limited. However, if you're fine with 64, 32 GB or even less, and if you're searching for something beautiful, sleek and metal, you can skip this PNY drive in a heartbeat.

Great Capacity at a Great Price, but a Mixed Blessing

By Baron Rojo

from Cumberland, Ohio

Verified Buyer

Comments about PNY Technologies 128GB Turbo 3.0 USB Flash Drive:

This is actually my first thumb drive, because it combines huge storage capacity with USB 3.0 operation at a price I couldn't resist. But when I tried loading a 60GB folder in a USB 3.0 port, the load failed three times before I gave up. Switching to a USB 2.0 port, it loaded without a single incident.

The captive plug-protector slide is handy, but tends to flop over the connector while you're plugging it in. You either have to hold it back or ignore the flopping.

Comments about PNY Technologies 128GB Turbo 3.0 USB Flash Drive:

Although the price is lower than most of the other 128GB drives that are out there, don't let that prevent you from buying it. PNY always delivers great quality products, and it's exactly what I was hoping for out of a flash drive. It transfers files quickly and doesn't give me any problems that the other reviews warned about, such as low storage space or not cooperating with the computer. The only issue I had with it was that the plastic top does not slide down or up very easily. However, that's a small price to pay for such a great flash drive.

    Use this product for backups of Laptop PC data and system files (Windows 10). The best feature of this product is the blazing fast transfer rates of moving data such as large video or audio files between devices or systems. Cannot find any things that are not so good about it. Even the price was right as it was purchased during a sale by a major New York retailer.

    Fast and reliable

    Comments about PNY Technologies 128GB Turbo 3.0 USB Flash Drive:

    I purchased this for a backup of photos while traveling, it's large enough to hold a full weekend of shooting as a backup to my laptop. The USB 3.0 is quite a bit faster than USB 2.0.

      Works as expected. These drives are quick and love having such a large flash in my pocket for anytime I need it, work or personal. The USB 3 is well worth the investment over 2.0 drives, its so much faster!!
