5 out of 5 eggsBOOT ALL THE THINGS

Pros: Very reasonable price for capacity
Solid construction
Good size (physically)
Decent transfer rates

Cons: Shield on dongle is designed to protect it from bending and impact, but it does not stop debris from entering. Not worth knocking off an egg, as it's still an excellent product.

Other Thoughts: I bought three of these and they have not failed me once. All three have been utilized as boot media.
One for Windows 7 (along with all the software I'd install on a new system).
One for my penetration testing and disc imaging.
And one for ESXi and all the VM software for virtualization. All work flawlessly.

3 out of 5 eggsslow

Pros: it works. good price for the size.

Cons: Very slow random io speed (~7kbytes/sec 4k write). A "good" cheap flash device will do about 1mbyte/sec. Don't use this drive as an boot device or other use that requires frequent disk access.

Other Thoughts: This multiple order of magnitude decrease in performance seems to be a trend in new sd cards and usb sticks.
I can't comment on reliability, as the device is new.

2 out of 5 eggsDied very fast

Pros: Looks nice, fits on key-chain

Cons: Slow read and write speed, died in just under a month.

Other Thoughts: May have been my fault that it died, not sure. I was storing visual studio projects on it and compiling them from there. That can be hard on a flash drive. However, my other flash drives have no problems and I do the same with them.

4 out of 5 eggsOK

Pros: Nice size. Like the positive click sliding cap. Very good price

5 out of 5 eggsGood USB drive for stealth use.

Pros: No LED. I thought it to have one originally, but am going to use it instead as a stealth drive.
Sturdy lanyard hole.
Casing doesn't feel like it's going to be crushed if I step on it.
Looks cool when not plugged in.

Cons: Slide rattles when not engaged. I feel that the it should last at least ~2.5k slidings before it becomes a hassle.

Other Thoughts: Loosen the slide up by pinching *only* the sides and sliding it in and out for at least 14 times. ||

5 out of 5 eggsGood overall

Pros: It does its job.

Cons: A little slow but not to bad

Other Thoughts: It fell out of my pocket one day, and after a week when i was about to buy another one I found it on my front lawn.
I then plugged it into my computer and it still worked and still works today.
