1 out of 5 eggsLooks like hit or miss, and I missed.

Pros: Somewhat small. Fast transfer rate.

Cons: Unless I got the wrong product, it's not nearly as impressively small as some claim. It is smaller than my five year old flash drive but thats not something to be proud of.
Cap isn't that sturdy.

Other Thoughts: Mine broke after just a few weeks. It is recognized in XP as a generic storage device but when I attempt to open it XP ask me to insert a disk into the drive. Good luck with PQI tech support. The guy just asked me for my email and sent me links for formatting software. Fdisk won't work and none of the software he sent me worked. So now I'm back to using my old, slow, yet reliable San Disk flash drive.

4 out of 5 eggsCompact and works great

Pros: * Very Compact - Fits in wallet
* Sturdy
* Fast -- 8.8 mb/sec transfers
* Fits directly in USB port
* Built-in LED to display stick access

Cons: * Stick can fall out of adapter
* No lanyard hole
* So small it could be easy to lose

Other Thoughts: I am very happy with this. I got one from a local retailer, and it came with a wallet card that will hold two of these.

The one problem I've found is that the USB adapter / pocket clip isn't very sturdy and sepaates into too many pieces. The clip is on the cap of the adapter, so either the adapter and the cap can separate, or the USB drive can fall out of the bottom of the adapter. Personally, I don't use the adapter so it's not a problem for me, but for those of you looking for a USB drive with a pocket clip, you might want to look at a different one.


If you're looking for one of the smallest USB drives out there, I'd definitely recommend it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat usb flash drive, highly recommended

Pros: After breaking my previous pqi flash drive (different model) i decided to try something a bit bigger and so far is been a great flash drive, i ended up partitioning the drive. Half of it for school work, the other half running linux. No problems after 2 months :)

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsResilient

Pros: Just the other day, my wife found this in the dryer. It accidentally got washed and dried--and it still works perfectly. Does what it is supposed to and does it well. I've had no problems - pop's up and is recognized fine in XP (the only computers I've used it on so far have had XP or XP Pro)

Cons: I would prefer that it had a more solidly connected clip-cap - it has yet to come free, but it's just friction holding the cap to the device - and gravity is working against it based on the way it hangs from the cap.

5 out of 5 eggsThe end all of thumb drives

Pros: Speedy Transfer
Bootable
Water Proof
Password protected
Partitioning
Works with everything

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: a 512mb thumb drive for less than $xx is a deal,but one that can do all of the above,its a steal! I boot SLAX Linux off of it,I keep my games on it,I keep firefox on it,I keep Flash Animator on it and I still have 249MB left! This is easily the best thumb drive one can use.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat product, ok cap

Comments: I like this stick. I should have bought it here instead of at Frie's for twelve dollars more... Anyway, it has great transfer rates, Looks cool, I just wish the cap had a tighter fit. It's never accidentally come off, but it doesn't 'snap' on, it just slides over the silver end. I think it works well enough, but it is definitely not waterproof.

Good buy, from Newegg...
