Optima Pro Attaché USB 2.0 Flash Drive was designed with Windows Vista in mind, and works in conjunction with new SuperFetch (intelligent caching) to enhance system performance for quicker startup and windows multi-tasking. You can get a boost in system responsiveness without upgrading internal components (such as processors or RAM). You can define the amount of storage you want to allocate toward ReadyBoost, and how much you want to use for traditional storage, so Optima Pro Attaché still makes a great solution to capture, store, and share digital images, music, games and documents.
Customer Reviews of PNY 8GB Optima Pro AttachÃ© External USB 2.0 Flash Drive
Readyboost and large capacity9/15/2008
Works well. Running readyboost with 4Gb on my Vista system. Using the other 4Gb for backup.
More Than You Need for ReadyBoost9/7/2008
I purchased this for use as a ReadyBoost drive for Vista. It tests as fast enough, so ReadyBoost is available on this device. The only problem is that you can only use 4GB for ReadyBoost. I can't remove this USB drive while using it for ReadyBoost, so there isn't any need for the other 4GB on the drive. I have ordered a new 4GB drive. I will swap them and use the 8GB drive for transfers and storage. I could have purchased a cheaper 8GB drive if I didn't need one that was ReadyBoost capable.
Super PNY 8GB8/19/2008
Another great product from Buy.com. Super Flash Drive. This is my 3rd PNY and they have all been great. Not one problem and always easy to use. Works great with both XP and Vista. It holds a mountain of files, pics and music. I am going to use this flash drive to back-up everything of importance on my HP and then reformat it back to its factory state.
No complaints at all - works great
small size, huge storage6/20/2008
This is great, everyone needs a jump drive, but this is also serving as backup for some of my other files. With all the room, it's going to take a some time to actually fill it up. It fast enough too.
What I needed5/28/2008
If you've ever had a computer crash on you and you lost all of your music or pics then you know how handy this can be. Now I have all my important stuff saved on here and that can't happen again.
Good value but...5/28/2008
I received this drive promptly from Buy.com and have been using it for a while. While it was a good value, Vista would not initially use it for ReadyBoost. ... I just now checked it again, and now Visa has set up 4GB for ReadyBoost. If I see any problems later, I will re-review(?) this item.
PNY 8GB Optima Pro Attache Flash Drive5/26/2008
Hard case, light, small and hardy, about average speed. Very good buy for the money.
8GB USB Flash Drive5/20/2008
very fast compared to some other flash drives. Can't beat it for the price.
Can't beat the size of the memory for the price.
Small in size, but large in capacity5/19/2008
I was pleased when I saw that the price had come down on an 8 gb thumb drive, especially since it was PNY. Since I've had it, I've had a problem. When I plug it into an empty USP port, sometimes it doesn't install the upload information. I'll pull it out and replace it, sometimes several time, finally it work. This not only happens on my pc, but on my laptop also. Sometimes I can just change ports when this happens. Later, I can come back to a port that I was having problems with, and it will work the first time. Other than that, the information is never lost, and I can transport a large presentation on it.
Excellent product, excellent price5/18/2008
Even at $32.00, this is totally worth it. The original Attache drives allowed the plastic to come off, which I liked, but this drive is thinner all around, so it can still get in to thin spaces (which is sometimes required). Big plus? The cap slides on to the back, so it doesn't get lost. Absolutely recommend.
Less than $35 for 8GB of data to carry around with you = Great Buy. I am really pleased with the capacity, the looks and the price.
So far this drive has been very good.
