2 out of 5 eggsDigital ok, mechanical not so much

Pros: Capacity is useful and so far it has worked reliably. Cost is low.

Cons: This flash drive is of the kind that retracts the connector into the housing body. There is no resistance to speak of - if you push the connector, it goes in. That means when you're pushing the drive into the usb socket, you absolutely must be able to apply enough pressure to the recessed blue button to keep it from just folding up. I have found that in many situations it is really hard to get it into the socket, because there is not enough room around some usb sockets to ensure that sufficient pressure can be applied to the blue button. I regret buying this thing...it'll be a pita for years to come.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: USB connector retracts and pushes out easily. Copying files from laptop hard drive averaged about 3MB per second (Core i3 with Windows 7). Nice blue LED is clearly visible.

Cons: No way to attach to keychain.

Other Thoughts: Great price (I paid 7.99). Super fast shipping, as always.

3 out of 5 eggsMeh, adequate

Pros: Switch seems to lock in place well
Not too large; plays okay with others
There IS a nice, soft blue duty light, hidden under the name
Works!

Cons: Outer shell seems flimsy because there isn't much in it, so it's very loose
Larger than I'd prefer
No key chain support
Strange warning on package that removing the 'sticker' on the flash drive will void the warranty -- what sticker?

Other Thoughts: Middle of the road speed.
There seems to be a somewhat large table of chemical ingredients on the back of the package, possibly indicating that it contains no lead (Pb), but may contain one or more of 5 other elements/chemicals: Cd = Cadmium?, Hg = Mercury?, Cr6 = isotope of Chromium?, PBB = Polybrominated biphenyl? and PBDE = Polybrominated diphenylether? It's all Chinese though. It makes me wonder why they spent that much effort and space to divulge whatever it is; in that manner -- is it a warning to not allow children to place it in their mouth?
That 'life-time' warranty may be shorter than you think.

1 out of 5 eggsWrite protected

Pros: Cheap

Cons: I've used the HP flash recovery tool and the JetFlash Recovery Tool, neither has been successful. I've ran both program in safe mode, I either receive the write protection error message again or a restriction on administrative privileges, even though my account is an administrative account and I ran the program as an administrator.

1 out of 5 eggsFlash drive suddenly becomes write protected

Pros: Low cost at $8 w/ free shipping.

Cons: Very slow speeds on my SSD laptop, reads @ 7-12 mbps and writes @ 1-1.5 mbps, during my first week I used this to store a game, when suddenly it became write protected. There's a software tool you can find on the manufacturer's website however for some reason I'm unable to use it due to restrictive administrative privileges even though my account is an administrator account and I did run the .exe file as an administrator. Even while it was working the read speeds were so slow that I could not properly play my game without avoiding extremely long loading screens. The plastic casing feels very cheap, I'm used to my sandisk titanium cruzer, however they have yet to create a usb 3.0 flash drive.

Other Thoughts: - Good price for a small document flash drive
- Sudden write protection voids usefulness
- Cheap plastic casing feels feeble
- Sliding usb drive is capless
- Slower than average read and write speeds
