Summary: I haven't used it much because it has no guard/sleeve/whatever around the end that sets into the computer. Must be careful to put it in correctly. Other than that, it looks good. That's why I bought it...kind of like a novelty lighter. Teens may like it. Kids and elderly should avoid it.
Great quality, difficult to figure out, but for simple operation it's awesome!

Summary: Got (2) for each one of my kids! I liked the rubber design, which is good. The buttons are hard to make it work, my kids can never figure them out, to change songs, turn it on, turn it off, change lights, just a pain. When the battery ran out, I blamed it on then, to end the constant questions about the buttons. I will replace with a better unit for the kids that is easier.
Summary: This piece of $%$# caused me great stress and now it's being returned. I tried to sync the music from my windows media player TWICE and each time it took a whopping 40 minutes to do only to find out that no music transferred to the device. The message i get is NO MP3 FILES. Maybe i am doing something wrong the instructions are very tiny but i do see that it says that this thing was supposed to come with a cd but none was in the package.
Summary: I got this for my 10 year old nephew, and he seems to like it. It doesn't last all that long. The design is such that it will start to malfunction and/or fall apart after, say, 5 or 6 months of regular use. This is definitely not for someone who will use it as intended, as a "sport" utility, or a person who will frequently want to update their lists. For only $12.50 it is reasonably OK, but I'd spend a bit more and get a Sandisk Sansa.
Summary: This is a good usb drive. It works, that's for sure! I have used transcend products before and they have never failed me. The look of the drive is very nice and fancy but it feels a little flimsy in your hand, almost like you could crush it if you sat on it. Also, it will block usb ports next to it so you can't plug in multiple things next to each other.
