DiskGo 5 gigabyte USB mini hard drive.
480Mbps file transfer speed.
I did a lot of comparison shopping before I bought the Diskgo USB drive. In the last several years there has been an explosion in removable USB drives. Everybody's making them now and while the performance specifications of the various brands may be similar, the prices are definitely not. I compared USB drives for two days before I settled on the Diskgo model. I own a 2-gigabyte USB flash drive that I'd been using on a regular basis, but I'd nearly outgrown it and would soon need something with a larger storage capacity. The Diskgo 5gb model was priced less than $40.00. Other brands with identical storage capacity were priced at least twice that amount. Some were priced even higher than that. The Diskgo drive literally seemed too good to be true. As it turns out, it was.
I tested the drive the day it arrived and it worked fine. Over the next seven months I used it four or five times without incident. The Diskgo transfer speed was painfully slow, slow enough that I wouldn't use it at all if my other USB drive would suffice. Anyway, it came with a six month limited warranty. One month after the warranty expired the drive took a nose dive on me. It just quit working, in fact it quit working right in the middle of transferring files. Quit. Died. Why? I don't know. I've tried it on four different computers and the result is the same with each. They won't recognize it anymore. I'm not a hardware guy. Stuff either works or it doesn't. If it doesn't, you get a new one.
I'm perfectly willing to believe they sent me a defective unit and that this particular USB drive is not representative of Edge Tech Corp's product line. Doesn't matter. I won't be buying from them again.
