5 out of 5 eggsWorks great!

Pros: Hasn't failed us yet. Bought for my son to use for school, but I end up using it all the time to swap music and files from one computer to the next, so it gets a great workout. I'm going to get another one for myself.

Cons: I don't really have any - but I'm not a picky person .. so ... :)

5 out of 5 eggsAhh, Mr.Flash!

Pros: Again, with most flash storage, it's really hard to screw up. Yes even though it is supposed to be hotswappable, you still shouldn't. With care, this is such a cute little thing that works well. I grew up in the era with everything was "Mr." Mister MR. Mr. Coffee. Mr... whatever. So I feel a personal nostalgia with Mr. Flash. I use Mr. Flash as a "mp3" player so to speak. Essentially I bought him for my Kenwood head unit in my Miata, cause I have lots and lots of songs on my hard drive, and anyone who buys a CD changer needs to go back to the 90's. So with one gig worth of songs I find myself resyncing every week or so. Of course like most electronics after such read/write/deleting going on, you are bound to get some errors. Every so often I may get a song synced incorrectly, but other then that it works great! A great lil flash drive!

Cons: Kinda wish it had a blue LED as opposed to the ugly orange one.

Other Thoughts: what if it's a box of chocolates that are like life, instead of life being like a box of chocolates?

4 out of 5 eggsOk, for the price

Pros: Great price!

Cons: after using it a while I lost the end to it. and it did come a part when removing it one day. I was able to epoxy the end of it and haven't had a problem since.

Other Thoughts: the outside of the flash drive is pretty durable.

5 out of 5 eggsso far so good

Pros: Cheap. Good in the sack but wont talk to me afterwards.

Cons: Gotta wonder why on the pqi site this item has been discontinued and newegg is still selling it. Is it just surplus or is it because there is seriously something wrong with it. I'm not keeping anything to important on it just to be safe.

Other Thoughts: 983mb's high five from mc pee pants

4 out of 5 eggsI Cannot Believe It

Pros: This thing is great. I have used it many many times with no issues at all. I use it to transfer downloads using my company T1 LAN and bring them home.

Cons: Case sometimes comes off when I'm trying to unplug it from my PC.

Other Thoughts: I accidentally put this drive through the washing machine. IT STILL WORKS!!!

5 out of 5 eggsThis thing is awesome

Pros: Cheap, small, metal casing, BEEN THROUGH THE WASH 3 TIMES and still works.

Cons: fell apart early on, but a generous dose of super glue solved that problems several months ago

Other Thoughts: For the price, you cant complain about it. Its 10 bucks and its works well.

2 out of 5 eggsYou get what you pay for.

Pros: Its cheap, and very small.

Cons: It's almost a bit too small, but I still like that. Comes apart way too easily. The USB connector, and innards are held in the metal casing by the rear plastic insert, which simply just clips onto the memory board on each side.

Other Thoughts: It gets a 2 because it actually still works, and hasn't actually broken. The clips are just worn and cant hold onto the board anymore.Very annoying, but for ten bucks you can't complain too much.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap
It's 1 GB

Cons: Poor durability. It pulls apart very easily. Mine can't be pulled out of a port without it pulling apart.

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad for the price

Pros: It's very compact and pretty cheap.

Cons: The transfer speed seems pretty slow (PQI doesn't say what it is), and it gets pretty warm when reading and writing.
