Great price and memory function, POOR design

Summary: If you carry your jump drive on your keys, DON'T buy this one. The detachable part of the drive is the cap, so your keys are hanging onto your jump drive when it is in the computer. NOT good for the computer. I have another one where the cap connects to the keys and the jump drive pulls out and that is a much better design.
Summary: excellent product. was diff to setup on vista, despite being described as compliant with the operating system. their support was also useless, as they gace me some solutions, none of which worked, then they asked me to send it in for repairs, and this was brand new. so i went online and found the soln myself. now it works like a charm, excellent product.
Summary: I previously had a 256MG Lexar flash drive that worked well, but had a shape that prevented it from fitting into all USB ports. This new drive holds much more data, and with its streamlined shape I have had no problems inserting it into any USB port. I also like the fact that it fits on my key ring so I am less likely to lose it.
Summary: One of the fastest memory sticks with a metallic Stainless hard body casing. Sleek flat chrome body .4 " thick .8" wide 2.8 " long. Has black rubber edging for easy grip. USB connector has hard rubber moisture seal. This makes the cover hard too remove, but is sure not to fall off while carrying on you. This stick comes with data encryption with password software. Works great has option to partition stick with encrypted data portion.
Summary: The casing for this model is an issue, I have had it replaced once already after the casing came off completely witht he drive still in the PC. The new one I received also had issues in that the cap damaged easily, it seems the plastic used in the casing is not of high quality and will crack / break relatively easily.
Pros: Good capacity and speed.
Cons: Casing is somewhat dodgy for what you are paying.
Summary: My interest in this product was the Power2Go software. I'm a student, and being able to take software that i regularly work with along with me between classes, home, school, and work is incredibly helpful. What lets me down about this product is it's fairly hefty price tag. After investigating the prospect of having 'portable' software, i found another website, PortableApps.
Excerpt: "I was attracted to the Lexar JumpDrive Lightning flash drive as I scanned through several websites looking for a suitable flash drive. I short-listed a few but none could compete with the gorgeous and stylish look of the Lexar with its 1GB storage space. The flash drive interfaces with the PC or laptop via the USB port and it works on a plug and play basis on Microsoft operating systems. All Microsoft operating systems except Vista, but this isn't ...
Pros: cool as fcuk, hard wearing case, good storage space, price, password protected
