5 out of 5 eggswrite-protect switch keeps malware off

Pros: It has a write-protect switch, a rare feature which is necessary when removing viruses from multiple computers in one session without passing the virus from one to the other. Pretty blue color.

Cons: Big markup for a tiny switch, but hey, it works, so 1/2 con.

Other Thoughts: Hydraulic fracturing is a program designed to destroy the environment as efficiently as possible, with the side benefit of producing natural gas fuel.

2 out of 5 eggsPoor quality design

Pros: Good speed, write protect switch works

Cons: Design of the drive is bad. The plastic bezel around the USB connector is loose, and the only thing keeping it attached is the write protect switch. If that switch wasn't there the bezel would fall off. Because the bezel is loose, the switch gets turned when I don't want it to, and I have to keep an eye on the switch every time I un/re plug to make sure it's set like I want

5 out of 5 eggsWhat I was looking for

Pros: I wanted this flash drive specifically for the write protection switch. Being a geek, I'm often called upon to do malware removal and/or run hardware diagnostics on various computers. It makes it much easier when you don't have to worry about a piece of malware jumping on your flash drive. I highly recommend this flash drive for anybody needing a write protection switch. Oh, and I've tested the switch in both Windows and Mac. Flipping the switch to lock makes the drive physically read-only.

Cons: The read/write speed could be improved.

Other Thoughts: Making the drive bootable works great. In fact, I have UBCD, UBCD4Win, and the latest version of Avira AntiVir Rescue System installed on my flash drive. I also have various programs on the flash drive for minor infections / problems (MBAM, Chrome Portable, Sysinternals, Hijackthis, etc).

The best part of it all? I still have 2GB to spare!
