Almost too small

Jim, Amazon
29 April 2012
  • Summary: If this key is intended for use by someone who is not computer savvy, they may get confused by the fact that this key can be inserted upside down (and not work). It's so thin, that it will happily plugin with the contacts on the wrong side. It's also hard to open without delicate use of the fingers.

Thingy Breaks

Sharon K., Newegg
17 March 2012
  • Pros: Low price. Small. Lots of Memory
  • Cons: the little keychain loop broke after 4ish months of frequent use. For the price it was kind of worth it, but I almost lost it and my data. Plus, now it's almost useless. It's appeal is in its size and portability which it doesn't have anymore. Also, it has rough edges

Too impractical!

Macavity, Amazon
24 February 2012
  • Summary: This thumb drive seemed like a good idea when I ordered three. But you can't be all thumbs to open the cover on this drive. It's too time-consuming just to open it. Cute, though.

Shoddy Casing

Sean K., Newegg
13 February 2012
  • Pros: Price. Can't argue with that.
  • Cons: Casing is poorly made. There are these little end caps on the hinge, after just a couple weeks one of mine fell off. Now it feels like I'm going to rip it apart every time I open it.

Great flash drive, but slow.

Anonymous, Newegg
7 February 2012
  • Pros: Small, stylish, and reliable. It won't get in your way at all and it has no connection issues when plugged in.
  • Cons: Read / write speeds are a little on the slow side. If you plan on ever doing something that needs speed, such as booting an OS, this drive won't do a good job at it. This is pretty much strictly a light data storage device.

slower performance than advertised

Mark B., Newegg
16 January 2012
  • Summary: According to the manufacturer's website, the 16 and 8 GB versions of this drive should have 25 MB/sec reads and 10 MB/sec writes. There is also a 4 GB version that is lower-specced with 15 MB/sec reads and 8 MB/sec writes.
  • Pros: The drive is very small.
  • Cons: This drive has the performance specs of a the 4 GB version even though it should have higher specs because it is the 16 GB version. This is based on the performance specs currently (Jan 2012) advertised on the manufacturer's website. See other thoughts below for more details.

It looks better then it is

Levi S. Marshall, Amazon
12 January 2012
  • Summary: when the lid flips out you can't put anything above or below it. it takes up 3 usb ports in that sens. it looks really skinny and it is but since when it folds out the lid cannot be totally flat the it is actually taller then a normal flash drive.

Don't touch it

William H., Newegg
23 October 2011
  • Summary: Cheap enough but the connector thinness is disturbing.
  • Pros: Small, can wear on a badge or lanyard; keyring
  • Cons: 1) The device tab is not as thick as a standard USB connector, thus is you inadvertantly touch it when plugged in, the device will disconnect from Windows. It is NOT a secure tight fit in a USB jack, as you are used to. 2) Had to be 'installed' in my PCs - with a re-boot. Not sure this will work ...

Good but not great

FENG Z., Newegg
30 August 2011
  • Pros: Compact. Good looking. Great for everyday use.
  • Cons: Mine only got average 8-9 MB/s read/write even for large movie files. The first few seconds seemed very fast but then slowed down to an average 8-9 MB/s.
