Summary: These are really small flash drives but a lot fit in them! The transfer rate is pretty fast, so that's good. I will be using these to DJ with! I used to have cheap flash drives that my cd turntables had trouble reading but now they read all the files on these and that's what I wanted :)

Summary: Very fast delivery for this new Sony 4GB Flash Drive. I like to use this Flash Drive for 'Ready Boost' extended memory on my Windows 7 PC's. The 'Ready Boost" feature supports up to 4GB, so this is the largest Flash Drive that can be used. This Flash Drive also has a LED that blinks when it is accessed, so that you know that your system is using the Flash Drive as extended memory. The 'Ready Boost' feature improves overall system performance.
Summary: When buying this, I bought it for my Macintosh as a Boot Camp Windows 7 boot USB drive. I'd previously read in a forum that this brand and type worked fine, and unfortunately it did not work well with Boot Camp. However, seeing as there was nothing advertised about boot camp and it works great as a thumbdrive otherwise, 5 stars. The size is a pro and a con; in one hand, it fits in my wallet and is with me wherever I go.
Summary: I bought the 4GB version of this flash drive. THE GOOD: -It is VERY compact -- really tiny. I love that. -Unique, clean modern look -Inexpensive THE BAD: -No cap. Most flash drives come with a cap, or can be retracted into themselves for protection. I feel like I can't just toss this in my bag -- but instead have to be more careful with it (and back it up more frequently). The previous versions of the Sony MicroVault drives did have a little silicone sleeve...
