5 out of 5 eggsIt Works

Pros: Well it works.

Cons: Cap isn't attached and can't simply be placed on the back while on a key chain. I'll likely loose it sooner or later.

Other Thoughts: Good price, 4GB of storage, buy it.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent

Pros: 4GB of flash memory. LED access light. Free (with HP C6180 purchase).

Cons: rather slow write speed.

Other Thoughts: a decent little drive. Does what it's supposed to do. I have used it daily (on Windoze and Ubuntu) and have no issues.

4 out of 5 eggsAdequate

Pros: Price (free with HP LaserJet), high capacity, and it works (so far...knock on wood).

Cons: Had some trouble initially...needed several complete re-format and re-partition cycles before it finally kicked to life. Plastic keyring seems a bit shaky.

Other Thoughts: Unit seems okay now, but my initial setup troubles make me worry. I'll be using the unit as a backup, but won't ever rely on it to store data I can't afford to lose.

1 out of 5 eggs3.8 GB, but SLOW...

Pros: Well, large storage...but that's about the only pro.

Cons: Slow; HDTach shows it as being at 1 MB/s or lower for most of the drive. I'll just continue to use my 256MB Cruzer, its small, but fast.

Other Thoughts: If I had paid something for this (free with combo deal) I'd be mad...but then again, I wouldn't have bought this one as it has WAY too many poor reviews...(add mine to the list)

If you want a 4 GB flash drive that is fast and reliable, your best bet is a more mainstream company (Crucial, or if you have the money - Corsair)

If this costs more than $.01, don't touch it. I now see why Newegg is giving them away basically.

4 out of 5 eggsGood looks, great price

Pros: Great looking, small/slim, great price

Cons: Write performance of numerous small files, much like older thumbdrives, is poor. The technology could use a real shot in the arm in this regard. Read performance is high, and sustained large files move quickly, but small ones don't.

4 out of 5 eggsCheap, nice design, but slow

Pros: Fast read speeds (>24MB/sec). Nice design. Comes with wrist strap. No drivers needed. Seems reliable.

Cons: Slow write speeds (<4MB/sec). Tried it on several USB 2.0 capable computers (all with fast hard drives).

Other Thoughts: Would have liked a different LED color. Blue maybe?

4 out of 5 eggsNo Speed Problems

Pros: I got this in a combo with a printer which turned out to be the same price as the printer by itself. Works Great, usb 2.0 compatible which is probably why people thought it slow as they were using usb 1.0.

Cons: Could use a facelift.

Other Thoughts: bargin price for four gigabytes.
