5 out of 5 eggsGreat Flash Drive!

Pros: In a word, 'rugged'. I have been very rough on this flash drive and it keeps performing. I left it in my pants pocket this past weekend and it went through the washer and dryer unscathed. I love the fact that I don't have to keep up with an end cap too! I will buy Memorex flash drives from now on...

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsHaven't lost it yet

Pros: No cap to lose. You can put it on your key chain to prevent yourself from losing it (unless you lose your keys).

Cons: The paint is kinda chipping off now after a lengthy time of wear and tear. I honestly don't care though even though its very minimal.

Other Thoughts: I lost 1 other USB drive because I'm somewhat forgetful. Lost the caps to most of the others I've owned. I never forget my keys so I usually just connect this USB to my machine with the keys so I never forget it when I'm done working. With no cap to lose its a pretty nice device.

5 out of 5 eggspractical

Pros: I like these because there is no cap to lose. plus they have a neat blue activity LED which is pretty. blue LEDs are the best kind and if you didn't already know that well now you do because I just told you.

Cons: the paint on the inner portion will eventually wear off. which is OK on this specific model because when the white paint wears off it will only reveal a bare white plastic surface so everything still matches up nicely.

Other Thoughts: very durable, has survived on my keychain for over a year and even made it through the washing machine OK. oh and since someone asked, ATTO benches this at 7.5 MB/s write and 20 MB/s read.

5 out of 5 eggsWhere's the beef ... er ... performance?

Pros: I don't own one.

Cons: 2 comments and nothing about the performance. There are a gazillion flash drives available so other than the packaging the important info is the READ/WRITE performance and the warranty replacement policy.

Other Thoughts: Please include some real performance read/write numbers such as DiskBench or other benchmark programs please.

5 out of 5 eggsIs it real, or is it Memorex?

Pros: compact design. attached flip open cover.

Cons: None for overall operation. Connector seems slightly bent after more than a year of use but still working strong.

Other Thoughts: I just found it in the dryer last night. It survived a round in the laundry and still works flawlessly!

1 out of 5 eggsDubious Warranty Support

Pros: Nice flip-cover design.

Cons: One of the four I purchased would fail an NTFS format. I submitted a warranty claim, but spent a week trading repeat-question emails with Memorex. When they suggested I call their support line to discuss the problem, I finally had enough and gave up. I guess it's like an insurance company denying a claim.

Other Thoughts: I'll give Corsair a try.
