Summary: I bought 5 of these on a good sale. The design of the drive is solid, even though the connector is exposed that part didn't get damaged in any noticable way, however the plastic for the device seems to crack pretty easily - I've ruined 3 of these by keeping them in bags or on my key ring so i couldn't recommend these. Kingston DOES make a metal version of this thumb drive in the same form factor, though.
Summary: I only bought this because they were out of the SE9 model. This feels very fragile and poorly constructed, also it's probably the slowest drive i owned. I recommend you to purchase the SE9 instead.
Summary: I bought one of these from another retailer just shy of a year ago. I have used a lot of thumb drives and found them all to be unsuitable for me. I am a field tech and need to fit my drive in a lot of tight places, plus protect it from theft or loss. This drive fit that need perfectly. This drive is about as small as you can get without being down to the bare chip. Unfortunately, after almost a year on my key chain and hundreds of uses the housing cracked and fell apart.
Summary: This is a small usb flashdrive and the major problem I am having is it is so small, it keeps getting lost! Finally I tied a big long lanyard to it so I know where it is! I have lost it 3 times so far! It is odd, as the old size of a flashdrive like this was about 4 times bigger, and still was small. But this really small size does have some issues with being too small!!
