Fair warning

Anonymous, Newegg
11 October 2011
  • Summary: I've lost one of these and almost lost another type that's even smaller. The cheap plastic weakens and breaks. Just be careful.
  • Pros: Convenient. Interesting LCD capacity scale. Lid stays on pretty well.
  • Cons: Plastic is cheap and will break if you leave it on a key chain. I dropped the drive somewhere. Business end is a little too wide for side-by-side USB ports.

It's just ok

Ronald S., Newegg
23 September 2011
  • Summary: There's nothing really wrong with this, it works as promised and the price is right. However, it is fairly slow and when you start dealing with a larger storage device speed becomes increasingly important. It does what it claims to do, it just takes its time doing it.
  • Pros: Inexpensive
  • Cons: Slow Capacity feature is a gimick - not really helpful Shipping - this is not the product's fault, but Newegg shipping is going down the drain. The DHL-USPS shipping used on this took over 8 days to receive. There used to be a time when you would get Newegg deliveries in 2 working days, but those...

Buy a patriot or sandisk.

Corey B., Newegg
8 August 2011
  • Summary: For 4ish dollars it would be better to invest in a Patriot Xporter XT. Significantly better durability and transfer rates.
  • Pros: Worked well for about 8 months. The capacity indicator was pretty cool, but kinda useless seeing as I can see the capacity on my computer's display.
  • Cons: It died after 8 months of semi frequent use. The device would heat up to really high temperatures to the point that I could actually inflict first degree burns with the tip of the USB plug. This may have been my fault seeing as I tend to hotswap my flashdrives, but still I did expect a bit more l...

Do not use the Secure Software with a Mac

Steven P., Newegg
18 December 2010
  • Pros: Great Drive, love the meter.
  • Cons: The Secure II software will cause you to get a failure CD/DVD failure on a Mac. You will get a "The Disk You Inserted Is Not Readable by This Computer" error when trying to read DVD's. You will need to remove the app and the extensions or your DVD is useless. Just don't use this software.

Poor customer service.

Dan S., Newegg
13 December 2010
  • Summary: For some reason the capacity meter strip does not work correctly on mine, it alway shows the drive is 100% occupided even with nothing on it. And I made sure my drive is on FAT, too. I didn't buy this from Newegg, rather I recieved it as a gift, thus I don't have the receipt for store return.
  • Pros: The capacity is correct. And the file shredder and secure utility does work. Ok transfering speed.
  • Cons: Capacity meter can only work with the drive formated to FAT file system as stated in many web reviews, newer file system like NTFS will disable the meter, though the drive remains functional. The strap loop shouldn't be built the cap, instead should be on the drive itself.

The free capacity indicator does not work.

Mikayel I., Newegg
4 July 2010
  • Summary: The write speed, including the sync time, is 7 MB/s for large files - result below average (as of middle of 2010)/
  • Pros: Is thin. The LED works nicely, blinking during data transfer. Cap holds firmly.
  • Cons: Not good design. Putting the keyring hole through the cap instead of body seems unreliable in long use. The free capacity measurer is a joke. One wonders who and why has designed it. It has a thin plastic sheet cover, which is easily scratched. The measurer itself shows stripes of two shades of g...

The Luxury of a Lexar in Your Life!

Nar2, Ciao
5 May 2012
  • Excerpt: My first foray into USB Flash drives came at the expense of using a very cheap 1GB Mp3 player I bought a few years ago from Woolworths. It had a product name that was not available on the internet, unashamedly cheap looking, sported a speaker, a few sound settings and passed itself off as a 1 GB...
  • Pros: Hi speed, great security software, handy, capacity gauge constant, keyring hole
  • Cons: Very hard to find now 4 years later; greedy sellers mean different prices .
