3 out of 5 eggsLots of space, but too slow

Pros: This drive looks great, has lots of space, and seems to be pretty reliable.

Cons: It's way too slow, especially if you're transferring large files and not loading this thing up with small files. On my Dell (running Vista) it transfers at about 6.3 MB/s. For me, this is way too slow. I feel like I wasted my money.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat thumbdrive!

Pros: Small, thin, fast, bright light. The fact that it is thin allows it to fit right next to another USB connector (many thumbdrives are fat and will not fit into recessed USB ports). Also, the very bright activity light is on the END of the drive making it easy to view.

Cons: Cap could get lost. Looks like a stick of gum- I might mistakenly eat it.
One big complaint- the Win98SE driver and 'password protection tool' is not included and cannot be downloaded anywhere on NewEgg (I'm sure this was an oversight and I hope it is corrected).

Other Thoughts: Don't believe the guy who says this thumbdrive is slow; I have my own IT business and have used many such drives. I clocked this one at 9 MB/s which is 3X faster than my 4G JetFlash. Also, it WILL store large files right out of the box. I copied a 2GB file with no problem in 220 seconds.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it!!!

Pros: Nice and small. I like the bright white color (easy to find if you drop it somewhere) Plus, it's 8 Gigs!

Cons: Didn't come with a tether, though it does have a spot for one. The lid doesn't feel like it will be able to stand heavy use.

Other Thoughts: It's Newegg branded. That's sweet!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Drive, reasonable price

Pros: Small, fast, holds more than my 1 gig flash drive!

Cons: VERY bright LED, less expensive would be nice.

Other Thoughts: Newegg comes through again!

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Small

Cons: It fails on large (more than 0.2 GB!) file copies from the drive to the hard disk which makes it a useless product.

My recommendation is to avoid this one.

4 out of 5 eggsSmall and cheap

Pros: This is a great flash drive. I've bought quite a few smaller flash drives and I decided it was just time to get one that will last a long time. This drive is quite small (you can fit two side-by-side), and has a bright (but not overwhelming) LED.

Cons: The only con to this drive is that the write times could certainly be a little faster (this is the only reason I gave it a 4 not a 5). Overall though, it is still faster than about 1/2 of my drives.

Other Thoughts: It's made by Newegg... how could you go wrong?

3 out of 5 eggsUmmm...Washed It

Pros: Arrived quickly, good storage space, fairly quick tranfers during the time it was in my possession.

Cons: no lanyard

Other Thoughts: Had it for a week, lost it, I think in a deep shirt pocket, gone into Laundry Limbo.

2 out of 5 eggsUnusably slow

Pros: High capacity.

Cons: Too slow to be usable except for archiving type storage. I've given up on it being useful

5 out of 5 eggsGreat USB Drive

Pros: This is a good drive. I can format it as NTFS, but I use FAT32 for better compatibility. Readyboost works without problem, but I do not use this feature as I have enough ram. Otherwize it gets detect everytime I plug and transfers without problems.

Cons: Perhap speed could be faster, but quite acceptable.

Other Thoughts: It would be nicer if the rear of the drive is smaller so the cap can be fit in while the front USB is in use.

Also should come with a string.

4 out of 5 eggsVista Problems

Pros: Good unit, inexpensive, fast.
Same driver problem as the other guy...

Cons: How I fixed the Vista Driver problem:
Go to c:\windows\inf and delete:
DRVINDEX.DAT
INFPUB.DAT
INFSTOR.DAT
INFSTRNG.DAT
INFCACHE.*
SETUPAPI.*
You will have to right click each and go to security, and give yourself Full Control of each file.
Reattach the drive, it will ask for a driver, select Browse My Computer and manually select c:\windows\system32

That's it!
