Summary: I love these things and often get compliments at work when folks see them. They think they are some sort of jewelry. When shopping for flash drives, I always look for a similar style to this.
Pros: 1. 2009 to 2016 - that's one long life for a flash drive. I have one of these still hanging around my neck as I type. It's been attached to my dork tags every day all these years, used numerous times in numerous PCs.
Cons: By 2016 standards, not fast or large storage device.
Cons: This unit starts out well, used it for ready boost on a old laptop. It set up fast and improved system functions. But soon just stopped working and it was so hot it was difficult to pull out. It is not ready for prime time and is going back. Requesting an RMA, almost to much trouble for the low p...
Amazing storage and space, but you'll probably lose it

Summary: I've had a black one of these micro USBs, but the actual storage part fell out of the black casing and I lost all the files that were on that USB (backed up so it was ok). I really liked the idea of 16 gigs in such a small packaging so I bought a silver one (more sturdy), but then I lost that one.
Pros: This thing has been in and out of my wallet or on my keychain since 2008. It is now 2014. Still going strong. Small, light, fast. A real hard to beat USB Drive 8gb seems to be the most stable size USB Thumb-drive I've owned.
Cons: Only the size, hard not to lose. Or forget you have it plugged into the back of a PC if you have to use Rear USB ports.
Summary: I use this sucker for school files, so it gets abused quite a bit.... Imagine being carried in a keychain all day long jerked in and out of dirty college computers about 8 times a day.... I use about 8 GB of it usually on cad files and renders and after almost 8 months, it still hasn't given in!
Pros: I've had for 5 years, hooked on my keychain with no protection or special effort to take care of it. It STILL works like a champ. The name imprinting has worn off and I had to search my purchase history on Newegg because I want to find a larger capacity of the same drive and I decided I should le...
Cons: A little slower than newer USB3 drives, but still very fast.
Summary: I have 3 of these bad boys. I lost one for a couple weeks only to find it in the expansion joint of my driveway. By the look of it, I had run it over a few times with our Armada (7,600 lbs vehicle), it has been swimming with me, been through the washer and dryer and still works. What can I say?
Pros: Its Durability! Large capacity. Nice size.
Cons: ? Not as fast as some. Tight fit in some computers.
