Pros: Exceptionally fast data throughput when used over native USB 3.0. Only one ounce. Small size belies its capabilities. Flexibile partitioning options. Nice encryption features.
Cons: Its 4-inch length and 1-inch width may prevent it from fitting in some USB slots. Detachable USB cover cap can be easily misplaced or lost.
