Summary: Have loved and used these for years, but my latest batch is about 3x slower than my last few batches. They seem to gave changed the internal flash chips. They are so slow I don't consider them usable anymore.
Very sturdy, very small. No problems yet at 2+ years.

Summary: I have been using this drive for over 2 years and have zero complaints. It does not have an easy life, since it lives on my key chain. The reason I choose it to begin with was that it is all metal, including the attachment point. Based on prior experience I have pieced together an attachment system that consists of a couple of very small split rings and a sturdy, small snap clip.
Compact, Quick, Durable recommended for file transfer

Summary: Durable and good transfer speeds. The drive itself is durable, mine has been dropped and carried around in a pocket with no change to performance. The read/write speeds seem comparable or a little faster than other drives I own (sandisk, lexar, team, kingston). These small drives do run hot which will probably lead to a shorter overall lifespan so I wouldn't leave it plugged in all the time and I would only use it for carrying files around not for a primary backup.
Recommended. Impressively fast and rugged. Great design.

Summary: Love this USB drive. If you have a need to carry a USB drive at all times, this is the way to go. Fast, small, rugged, nice-exterior design, right price. Tie it to something bigger, they are very easy to lose. I've plugged this drive 20+ times/week for over 2 years....no issues, fast access time. It's seen water, many times left in hot car over weekend, goes into pocked with keys. Impressed.
Summary: This little drive has been great, I bought a silver one and then lost it, so I bought this nickel one. They are really very small and waterproof. The transfer speeds are ok, they definitely beat out my old San Disk Cruiser Titaniums. My only complain, is that they don't include a very tiny little ring, and the little hole at the top was too small to be put on my keychain by itself, so I had to spend a long time looking for a little ring to put on it.
Summary: This flash drive is very small, but it has a large capacity. I keep mine plugged into my car stereo as a mp3 source. It holds a lot of music, and it's easy to change my music selection by copying mp3 files from my home computer (I have to take it out of the car to do that).
