Conclusion: Quirky and original are generally positive traits in a world of technology dominated by step-and-repeat clones, but somehow when it comes to rugged USB sticks it doesn't quite work. But fortunately, when the going gets tough it isn't looks that make the difference, and the dinky i-Disk punches well above its weight in the ruggedness stakes.
Pros: Well, as we've already mentioned, it's bulletproof. But you don't need to risk gunfire to appreciate the merits of the tiny i-Disk – it really is as tough as they come. Data transfers are speedy too, and you also get mobile lock software for locking down a PC or laptop, as well as Security Zip for wrapping up your precious data in password-protected armour.
Cons: It may appeal to some, but the i-Disk's design is most generously described as odd. Quite what the “totem pattern” running around the metal housing is supposed to represent is beyond us, though at least it does help the i-Disk stand out from the masses. And while its compact size is in most ways a good thing, it does mean that storage capacities top out at this 8GB version – not a lot by today's standards.
