Summary: beware; the chip component inside which interfaces with the computer plug-in is completely unattached to the body of the device; I returned to receive a second and the same thing; plug into computer and remove only to have the body of the device in my hand and the internal chip portion still plugged into the computer. No it is not my computer, I use plenty of other devices.
Summary: I bought two of these flash drives. One for myself and one for my wife. I mainly kept mine in a drawer while my wife hersey secured to her car keys. Mine still works, her's looks a little scratched up and does not work. Though the keychain idea is a good one, the housing is not durable enough to take a beating as a keychain. I would recommend this flash drive only if you are careful to not bang it up too much.
Durable USB key chain drive (Update: But unreliable)

Summary: A couple of years ago I started carrying my passwords and ebooks with me on a 2GB Flash drive attached to my key chain. This has worked out great for me, however after about 3 years the wire tether that attached the original drive to the key chain broke and I started searching for a replacement.
Summary: As with any flash or solid state drives they can easily be damaged one of two ways. It's either your operating system has latched onto some of the drives data and since its in use ejecting the drive is sometimes impossible in which case I use device manager and do the "End Task" on that process/service. The other reason behind flash memory device failures is the surge of power from a 1.0/2.0 usb port jolting the device and wiping out the drives boot sector.
Great flash drive that may hold up to the riggors of daily use

Summary: I like to keep a flash drive on my key chain but the plastic cases all seem to break after 3-4 months use. The drives themselves still work, but not whatever contraption that it had to hold it to a key chain. With this flash drive, I feel confident it will make it longer. The drive housing is metal and feels very solid. It is also very easy to take off of a key chain which I really like. As far as data transfer goes, it seems fast enough.
Someone put some thought into this - ***ADDED COMMENT***

Summary: It's obvious that whoever designed this flash drive put some thought into its practicality. Besides serving as a tool for storing digital information, it carries several features that distinguish it from other run-of-the-mill flash drives: 1. It can easily go on a keychain. This by itself is a highlight for me because I've been getting tired of encountering so many flash drives that just have a tiny little hole for a lanyard strap and no real way to put it on a keychain.
Summary: Выглядит супер, металлический корпус не боится ударов и падений, удобно цеплять за что-то (я обычно цепляю ко ключам - тогда точно дома ее не забудешь в самый неподходящий момент). Ну еще колпачок, которого нет. Вес больше, чем у пластмассовых собратьев, это чувствуется. А самое главное: ужасные скорости чтения-записи. Наверно по этому их нет в характеристиках.
Summary: Согласен со всеми предыдущими отзывами - стильно, красиво, удобно, оригинально... Но, есть один недостаток - после шести месяцев не интенсивной эксплуатации, фиксатор "разболтался" и устройство раскладывается самопроизвольно.
