2 out of 5 eggsRead performance degraded to 3.5 MB/s after 6 months.

Pros: sleek and inexpensive

Cons: poor performance over time

Other Thoughts: I bought this device specifically to use with Windows ReadyBoost.

It worked as advertised for 6 months.

Now the windows winsat utility on 2 different PCs reports speeds averaging 3.5 MB/s (2.2 MB/s at the lowest).

I have 6 year old SD cards that now perform better than this drive.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Reliable, durable, and very slim. These are the perfect keychain flash drives!

Cons: One of the ones I bought had the little plastic lips broken off on either side of the usb connector... Looks bad, but it still works fine.

Other Thoughts: Bought five and handed them out as gifts to friends.

5 out of 5 eggsHad some delays

Pros: When i first used it ask me to fix the bad sectors on the USB flash drive, Every time i plugged into a new machine's asked me to fix the bad sectors. So i did.

Cons: This thing is really small im talking the size of your finger nail. Maybe put it on a key chain soo you dont lose it. I have it for a few days i lost it more than the days combined i have on it. It's work really good i dropped it and i think one of my family member step on it, Still working

Other Thoughts: It's a little pricely you can buy the same one but 16Gb for 9.99 $2 bucks more than the 8Gb I think go the extra mile and buy the 16gb one

5 out of 5 eggsTakes a beating but still reading.

Pros: Working as a technology person for local school system you need a lot of usb flash drives. These do not disappoint. I've dropped them, washed them, dried them, even ran one over with my car and they are still working like clockwork. Decent read/write speed. Ideal for putting small installs of Linux like PartedMagic on. Can be clipped on to a key-chain fairly easy.

Cons: The cap is made of silicon rather than hard plastic and will slip off if you jostle it around too much. Not that big of a deal if you consider how slim the profile is.

4 out of 5 eggsSmall and Great

Pros: Great storage for physical size. Good cost ($6) for the gb. The loop for attaching to keychains is surprisingly strong.

I came in an awesome little rubber slip cover!

Cons: You will insert it upside down and push it too far into the USB port. Anyone you give it to will do the same.

Small size = easy to lose if you are not careful.

Other Thoughts: I really like it. If you need a tiny card then why not this one.

Very small flash drive

2 out of 5 eggsCute but unreliable

Pros: Small and convenient. It's about 1/2 the size of a stick of gum and only slightly thicker than one. Fits nicely on keychain. Decent speed for price.

Cons: I've had dozens of flash drives, both cheap and expensive. This one had intermittent save problems, and now... after 4 months of very light use, it just died. All contents lost (of course). I may be in the minority, but I have never had any flash drive fail on me yet, not even my old 128MB drive from way back. This is disappointing especially so soon.

Other Thoughts: If I'd have gotten a year or two out of it I wouldn't even have bothered with a bad review.
