Comes down to if you can use 64 GB of storage and if the drive is reliable - reliability being the most important. I can assure you that if you buy this today, it will be considered obsolete in the very near future. But who cares? Again, it is reliable over time. If you can store you precious photos, etc. on this thing and retrieve them later, then that's what you are paying for. The discussion about read/write speed, performance, etc. - well, just don't dwell on that for a second. Everything I have is USB 2.0 at this point, so I'm not going to give that up anytime soon. Sure, faster would be better, but legacy products will serve a purpose and will for a long, long time. Of course, I'm assuming that 2.0 will be supported for some time as it should be. Hey, I can still boot my desktop from a floppy, even today.
