PNY is very shady for me. I've dealt with their products for PCs for awhile now and they are very cheap in my experience. 1/2 the time they work, the other 1/2 the time they don't, and come messed up right out of the box.

I saw a deal for a 32gb PNY Attache like this awhile ago but passed because I just can't trust their products. This is my personal experience with them so it depends, YMMV. I've read people say the stuff they make is great but again, from my experience, its very shady.

same here, i bought a 64gb pny at best buy 4 months ago and it just died on me this month, it's first usb drive that I experienced a failure with, and I have close to a dozen of them by now... trying to get an RMA on their site now since I found the original receipt for it...

I have this exact same drive and I can attest that compared to my 32gb Sandisk, this one is certainly slow during writes...

and never use these drives as backups, plenty of these have crapped out on me when I accidentally pull it without doing a proper removal

I think I'm just going to use mine to move over some XBLA games and DLC that I don't play much of. Maybe all my Rock Band DLC, too. Even with the slow write (and it is pretty slow), it's much faster to copy than to redownload, at least for me. Sounds like I definitely shouldn't store saves on it, or at least have a backup somewhere.

Not the PNY but I grabbed this Team 32G from Newegg just the other day. Was 17$ then but 19 now. Well priced, free shipping, very well reviewed, and fired right up on my Xbox.
