4 out of 5 eggsTwo for Three

Pros: Fast write speeds, low price.

Cons: None, as long as it works

Other Thoughts: Ordered two, but one came and was writing files at less than 1MB/sec. Newegg replaced it and now both of them have 6-8MB/sec write speeds.

4 out of 5 eggspretty good value

Pros: simple styling, not too much needless bulk

Cons: relatively slow write speeds (~4MB/s) compared to read (~15MB/s)

Other Thoughts: i had some trouble running the ubuntu 'disk utility' benchmark tool on a fresh one (or three). after dd'ing random data to the entire drive and reformatting, it seemed to work a little better. overall, good value. ymmv.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks good, but doesn't show when it is working

Pros: Great little drive, works smoothly and fairly quickly

Cons: There is no indicator light to show when it is working, so you have to give it extra time before disconnecting to be sure.
I am not a fan of swivel drives, but for the price on special it is a good deal.

5 out of 5 eggsSmall and Works

Pros: 1. Works fine. 2. Small, so it fits into those tight USB ports on the back of the machine. 3. The swivel cover is steel, very robust, and it comes off easily so you can ditch the annoying thing.

Cons: If you want to keep the swivel cover on for travel protection (not a bad idea, I guess), then you'll need a rubber band or similar to keep things in place. Probably an elastic hair band (as for a pony tail) would be better, they outlast rubber bands. The supermarket sells elastic hair bands on the aisle with combs and shampoo.

Other Thoughts: I copied a 1.3gig video from my hard drive to this flash drive in 2 minutes, 40 seconds. The same file copied to my desktop in 15 seconds. In both cases Task Manager showed my CPU was hardly working at all, in both cases the video played. Anybody who wants to can do the math, but the thing seems to me to work fine.

Pretty much all flash drives come formatted for FAT32, which is old-style Windows. If you want to reformat to new-style NTFS, then Google for "HP USB Disk Storage Format Tool" with quotes.

This Hewett-Packard freebie has been around forever, you can download it from any number of places, and it will do the reformat job for you in about a minute. As always, MAKE SURE you're reformatting the drive you intend, this is no time for guesswork.

If this note about formats doesn't mean anything to you, then you don't need to worry about it for a second. Your computer will take care of everything. This note is just for us semi-geeks who think we know what we're doing.

3 out of 5 eggsGood for the Money, not Great overall

Pros: Cheap, works, data transfer rate is decent, looks nice

Cons: Bought 2, both have 15gb, instead of 16gb (no other preloaded data on it). Swivel feature is smooth, but lacks any resistance, so it swivels with very little force, exposing part or all of the USB port.

Other Thoughts: I don't understand how companies get away with branding something '16gb' and not giving 16gb. I mean, I do understand, but it still confounds me that most USB flash drives I've worked with don't come with the advertised space.

4 out of 5 eggsNot too bad

Pros: It's a decent 16gig flash drive for the money. It has decent transfer rates.

Cons: The swivel thing is a piece of junk that pops off easily. The outer plastic coating has this weird film coating on top of it that started to come off after I used it for a few days. A little annoying.

5 out of 5 eggsWow.

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Non

Other Thoughts: I washed and dried this lil brute and it suffered no data loss at all. As a matter of fact I'm using Firefox portable to type this. Wintec, you have earned my respect!!!
