Get something cheaper and with more space than this.

Summary: I bought it on the review of another, someone I'd like to slap right now. The reviewer was talking about it's speed, and I wanted a USB drive that would work well for streaming video on my tv.
Pros: - it's been reliable to this point - 8GB is a good size for most needs - never had any data issues
Cons: I have to bend the metal USB connector back into place all the time. I thought the thick rubber cap on the metal connector would keep it safe, but it doesn't, at least not in my experience. So far this has not effected the performance of the drive at all, but I could see the thin metal getting wo...
Summary: It gave up on me after a year and half. I thought I took good care of it, I always eject the drive before unplug it from my mac. Didn't try to run over by SUV like in the review video. However it decided to stop working all of the sudden.
Pros: Pretty Fast for USB2.0 16 GBs 10 years limited warranty Water proof (w/ cap closed) --- This is so useful since it will collect dust like crazy
Cons: The top got loose after a while This is one dust-magnet drive Die after 1 and half (see other thoughts)
Summary: The product pictures displayed speed tests outputting as much as 15 MB/s write and 30 MB/s read but in reality its just 7 MB/s write and 26 MB/s read. I wouldn't suggest the extra price for the little extra performance.
Cons: Not sure how this is so well-rated? Sure it's nice and durable, and the 10-year warranty is amazing, but the controller in it is slooooow. I get like 3MB/s writes. I just copied a 3GB .iso over and it took forever.
Summary: I have to say that I was impressed with this mem stick when I first bought it. However, the cap stretches out over time and falls off, and in my case... the rubber coating that is over the main body of the stick pulled free and fell off.
Summary: Very happy with the capacity and read/write speeds, but that rubber casing drives me crazy. Lint, dust, fuzz, and grime stick to it like a magnet. Profile of casing is not slim enough to squeeze between two USB plugs in a vertical side by side situation.
