USB 2.0 is just too slow for a stick this size.

I bought one of these and it lasted 10 days and now is unreadable. I transferred all of my data onto it and had not yet backed it up. Lost everything. Sent it to data recovery, the chip is too new to read. Buy with caution!

Every time they put up Centon brand flash memory on Woot! I see tons of horror stories about how it is unreliable.

The reviews on other sites are similar.

Can someone explain how to get rid of the white background on the map pieces. I'm trying to connect the pieces and the white part covers up the rest of it. I'm using GIMP by the way.

use the 'magic wand' in the toolbox, and click on the white part. It should select all the white. Then hit 'delete' (on the keyboard) and you should be good.

I'm finally going to buy one of these. They've popped up so often, I figure: why not?

It's nice to see flash drives on Woot again - there was a long period where I wasn't finding any to replace the failed 16GB Kingston I bought.

I couldn't agree more. Anything greater than 16GB and you'll be spending all of your time waiting for the data transfer to complete.

I never buy anything greater than 8GB in USB 2 format.

3 Mb/sec.... Would take almost 6 hours to fully write to or read from this stick. Just so you know.

It is totally irresponsible of WOOT to offer this. I bought this from WOOT in the past and it failed in a similar way

Must be a reason there's a surplus. Woot probably got them for a 2 bucks a piece.

That would still be overpaying by at least $3.

Hit 'b' (Tools, Paths) and set the path around the map. Then Shift V (Select, From Path), copy, paste into a new (complete map) file, hit 'm' (Tools, Transform Tools, Move) and move it into place. Be sure to save.

This product gives a new definition to the word SLLLOOOW. Data transfer rate is the slowest I have ever seen on a flash drive. Combine that with the amount of data it holds and you have a nightmare scenario (or a lot of time on your hands). Combine that with poor reliability and this deal should be easy to pass on.

I bought two of these in June from WOOT, same price. I have been able to use it with UBUNTU 12.4, WINDOWS XP, VISTA and WINDOWS 7. I have not tried one with pretty pirate hat but I am sure if they work on LINUX it will work also. They work well and are a great price for the amount of memory.

Oh sure... I wait all woot-off without buying anything and when I finally do (64gb Data Stick), everyone proceeds to trash the item. Can you cancel a purchase?

I assume it was under the warranty and you got a replacement?

Makes me wonder what item has been listed for the longest in the history of woot-offs...

This happened to me too, though it lasted a couple months for me.

I've had really good luck with Centon in the past ... but not with these! I bought 3 on a previous woot and am horribly disappointed.

I've had files get corrupted, win7 computers tell me that they need to be formatted and on one machine, the audio of the data transfer comes through my speakers.

I'm done with Centon anything.

Got one of these last time, wanted the large storage for copying off interesting clips, from video security DVR. Unfortunately, the DVR and Windows Vista, have different ideas about how data should be written. Fortunately, it works well with my media player hooked up to my TV. Copied 30 gig worth of video, works very well. Haven't tried, but I want to see if I can copy DVDs to it, would be kind of cool to select a movie from a menu, rather than scanning through a shelf.

I Got two of these. One I have been using for about a year, on my Work Computer, as mp3 storage. No Problems at all.
I have not used the second one at all yet. I think I have a Flash Drive Fetish
