5 out of 5 eggslike it

Pros: robust, fast, never have a problem. Don't understand why so many negative reviews. This is my second Memorex. My first one was 512 MB, purchased it years ago. This is 8GB works fine. I have also DATAStick by CentonPro, it's much slower than Memorex and asked me to reformat while Memorex runs OK so far.

Cons: I don't see any. People who say CONS - I lost cap for my USB drive - it's not Memorex problem, it's you who can't keep own things tidy. I know these loosers, they lock car key inside and blame car manufacture.

4 out of 5 eggsNice and small, sort of

Pros: Very small LED (blue) that doesn't scream LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME!
Decent price.
About 2.5" long.
Gloss black but not flashy.

Cons: Wish it were faster.
It has a clear plastic cap and you will lose it. Since I will leave it plugged in 24\7 this is not a problem but if I were carrying it I would go with something retractable.

Other Thoughts: I wanted a USB thumb drive to use with my MS Sync System and this works well enough to store and play 1,000 MP3's with no problem.

Formatted with FAT32 @ 7.46G. MS Sync requires FAT32 for external drives.

Write speed is 10.6 MB\sec.
Copy speeds are 15MB\sec.

The blue LED is very small, like the head of a pin and I like that. It doesn't look like a night light the way some others do.

I should have done my calculations before ordering. I could really use a 16g or larger.
