5 out of 5 eggsGreat product

Pros: I've owned two of these 8GBs since 2008. I've used them and filled them many many times. They've stood up to a beating and never had any data issues. While they're not slow the transfer rate isn't insane in today's standards, but they are older (USB2). I would highly recommend these to anybody. 6 years and they're still going strong!

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsGreat while it lasted

Pros: I appreciated the rubberized construction. It made it comfortable to grip. It was also designed to be used with Ready Boost technology, which was all the rage when Windows Vista came out.

Cons: It got unsoldered after a few years of use. Towards the end, I had to push it up when it was in the USB port. My attempt to resolder it was unsuccessful. It's a good thing that I backed it up before doing so.

Other Thoughts: Back up your thumb drives regularly. What happened to me can be common. Or, sometimes, thumb drives just stop working.

5 out of 5 eggsflash drive

Pros: I love this flash drive. It is the best one I ever had. I feel it is built rugged and it is 1000 times better then any Sandisk.it might be expensive but your playing for the quality

Cons: I only have very few cons for this product. You might want to paint the end caps
Because there is no landyard for the end black caps They can be easily miss placed can and probably wind up missing. In my option a real stupid over sight on there part on Patroit's end. but you can make the land yard your self

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic flash drive!

Pros: Outstanding performance and durability. Still my favorite flash drive even though the size is less impressive than it once was. Has done duty as a Xbox 360 drive in the past without issue.

Cons: None, this drive may have cost a little more than its competitors back when I bought it but the difference was worth every penny.

Other Thoughts: I've asked this flash drive to handle just about every task conceivable over the years and it has yet to fail me. One of my favorite tech purchases.

5 out of 5 eggsDurable

Pros: +Good capacity
+Watertight

Cons: -None

Other Thoughts: I accidentally dropped this thing in a puddle during a heavy downpour in the summer of 2012. I didn't realize it until I got to my car and went back to retrieve it. When I got it home, I dried it off and it is still working today.
