1 out of 5 eggsIt lasted 9 months

Pros: It worked very well for 9 months.

Cons: Yesterday it decided to write protect itself. Now I can't write to it, format it, or delete what important info I have on it.

Other Thoughts: Other flash drives that I've bought from Newegg are still working, so I will stick with the other brands.

1 out of 5 eggsWorst USB Flash disk ever bought

Pros: It worked for 9 months. Reasonably fast, priced well.

Cons: You get what you pay for, this thing is cheap so you get cheap quality. I used this as a multiboot utility drive in my computer repair shop. Just decided to write protect itself and corrupt it's partition table today. Filed an RMA, and they said they do not honor the warranty, that Newegg would have to, which wouldn't be a problem if they supported the device past 30 days. I don't put the blame on Newegg, it's Wintec. Reading other reviews, and I'm not impressed. Below average customer support should be their new business motto.

Other Thoughts: Would not recommend this brand for their dodgy customer support, and will refuse to sell them when I get a storefront of my own. Get another brand, you'll thank me later.

5 out of 5 eggsUnbelievable

Pros: I kept trying to buy thumb drives off the shelf...wherever. They would stop working or just break. I don't recall why I chose this brand, but I'm so glad I did. I accidentally washed it in the washing machine. And nothing bad happened at all. I let it sit for a day. I stuck it into a port, and voila! No problems whatsoever. These feel solid and don't look cheap hanging out of my car stereo.

Cons: No cons whatsoever.

4 out of 5 eggsSD Formatter

Pros: Metal cover good for engraving your name or company-
--This thing was really horrible in the beginning. It would not carry large files and would not improve after re-formatting with Win7. I was about to toss it when I came across a program called SD Formatter. I ran that in NTFS and it worked! I have been using it for more than 5 months now and it has worked flawlessly.(knock on wood!). I have tons of utility files on it for computer repair. I have also used it to play a movie and tv shows--it still worked.

Cons: no indicator light

Other Thoughts: The flash drive comes with a good warrantee by the maker.

5 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: I happen to really like this drive. I'm a fan of the swivel style drives, and have had quite a few (despite losing them to sticky fingers). What I didn't notice when buying it was that the main body is covered by a matte black rubber texture, which only makes it exceptionally more awesome, as it ensures that your fingers won't slip, and it looks like something that the Batman would use.

Cons: None, at all.

Other Thoughts: I will probably buy more of these to use in the Bat Cave.

2 out of 5 eggsDeleted space

Pros: Swivel
Smallish
8GB

Cons: Bought two and randomly tried to move some stuff to it today and when I plugged it in, Windows said it needed to be formatted, but the size it would format to was only 5.24 GB.... I know this isn't right and it's very disappointing for my storage space to be deleted reasonlessly. I definitely won't be making another purchase of such a low quality product, as I expect it will probably fully die soon anyway.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: The cover looks cute in chrome but is useless except for scratching other things in your pocket . . .

Cons: DOA. Formatting in Fat 32 or Mac makes no difference, fails as soon as data is written to it.

Other Thoughts: Reliability MATTERS!
