Your USB 3.0 Passport to Data Mobility
Now there is no reason to shy away from the higher cost of the USB 3.0 interface. The DashDrive UV150 brings the convenience and speed of premium USB drives to budget-minded consumers.
A handy Snap-On cap design keeps the drive cap safe and snug on the rear of the device, preventing the cap from disappearing, as well as looking pretty cool.
The UV150 combines a classic look with economical pricing, a SuperSpeed USB 3.0 interface, and an attractive pearlescent exterior. Arriving in colors of striking scarlet and glistening onyx, its minimalist and modern design make it a fashionable and practical accessory both in and out of town.

Decently fast, well built stick.
A recent trip through the washing machine for one of these was a source of major alarm. I stripped the case down (it comes apart without breaking it), and dried the components with a hairdryer immediately after finding it in the washer. Left for 48 hours to completely dry and then plugged it back in. Thankfully, it appears to be fine, but you may not be so fortunate if it goes through the dryer first!
Working okay. Speed claims are a little questionable. Performance gets better when you are transferring one large file. Quality-wise, it may be a 4-star, but I cannot rate it 4 because 4-star on Amazon means "I like it". It works, but I don't like it. I will use it for now, till I find something with better speed at a good price point.
Wishlist: I was used to Sony's Vault with an LED indicator. With this, I cannot tell if things are actually moving in/out just by looking at it. But not a deal breaker.
Pretty disappointed with the drive. It works for what it should, but doesn't really live up to the USB 3.0 hype and is somewhat poorly designed. The cap barely stays on, and it's pretty much guaranteed to get lost within the first month if you're not watchful. The drive performed great when I first got it—I can't recall exact numbers now, but writes were in the 40MB/s range and reads upwards of 50MB/s. Within a week or two, speeds had dropped to approximately 6MB/s write and 40 MB/s read. Maybe I got a defective model; I never bothered to get it replaced as it still stores data fine, albeit slowly.
If you just need a cheap drive to hold a little data, this'll work, but I wouldn't recommend this as your "main" flash drive due to the speed concerns.
