4 out of 5 eggsNice, Cheap, Small

Pros: - Very compact
- Looks nice
- Blue LED for activity (but not too bright)

Cons: - Loop for attachment but it doesn't come with anything to attach it with
- The blue plastic connector with the pins rattles inside the enclosure

Other Thoughts: Worth the price for what it is

5 out of 5 eggsCheap for a thin, aluminum USB 3.0 drive

Pros: - One of the smallest USB 3.0 drives yet
- Nice aluminum housing
- Good read speeds
- Entire body is one shell, as thin as the connector itself
- Lanyard loop lights up
- Nice blue LED

Cons: - A tad longer than I'd have liked
- Lanyard loop is plastic, unlike the rest of the drive
- Slow write speeds for USB 3.0 (Only 22mb/s)

Other Thoughts: All in all, this is a great drive. The price is low, it's one of the smallest USB 3.0 flash drives out there so far, and it's got a slick looking aluminum body. The blue LED partially makes up for the plastic lanyard loop, but you'll still want to be careful with it on your keychain.

3 out of 5 eggsUpdated*

Pros: Portability and price is cheap.

Cons: I took off 2 eggs for false advertisement of 3.0 usb speed. Which currently is running 2.0 usb speed.
