Insanely slow write speeds spoil this small USB flash drive

Summary: I picked one of these up in the bargain bin of a local shop with the idea of using it as a "key ring" USB memory stick. The size of the Cruzer Edge is ideal for that purpose a tiny footprint and retractable tip avoids the problem of losing the cap.
Summary: I like the software that is provided for securing your data. My only issue with the device is that the plastic housing is very weak, broke it while keeping the device on my key ring; now it is more difficult to keep up with.
Summary: We bought several of these for the office. While they work ok in terms of data transfer, they're awkward to use because the retractable plug *retracts* when you try to plug it into a USB port.
Summary: I bought this from Bj's in a 4 pack for school. They worked great for the first two months. Then one simple bump the flashdrive is broken. The board cracks and the plastic outer shell falls off. This happened twice.
Summary: This is probably the worst flash drive I've had to date. While I do like the features it has (Very cheap, able to put on keyring, small and compact), they are all overshadowed by how incredibly slow its transfer rates are. To transfer 6-8 GB to it takes a minimum of 30 minutes, in my experience.
Summary: I bought this to replace my Verbatim encrypted flash drive. I found Sandisk's Secure Access software to be cumbersome and not particularly user friendly. In order to edit a file, the software requires the file be removed from the "protected area" into a common area.
Summary: Review for: SanDisk Cruzer Edge 16 GB USB Flash Drives (SDCZ51EP-016G-AFFP) The slider does not lock when in open position. Every time I try to insert this flash drive into the USB port on my computer, it slides back inside. I have to hold the slider up in order to get it to go in.
