5 out of 5 eggsThe only stick I'll carry around.

Pros: The 2.0 version of this stick was the first one I ever owned. I carried it every day for two years in the army and another two years after I retired. While I was enlisted, I finally just got tired of trying to remember to take it out of my pocket before I washed my ACUs. It was washed and dried HUNDREDS of times, dropped off the roof of a three story building onto concrete twice, totally submerged more times than I can count (aside from the washing machine) and just over all had an really hard life.

I gave it to a friend of mine's daughter a few years ago who was needing such a stick for school. She's ran it over I'm pretty sure once already.

It's still working right now, which is what gave me the idea to log in and do a review. :)

Cons: None. At. All.

Other Thoughts: A billion years from now, when some alien race happens by this planet on their way somewhere (long after we're all gone), I think they'll find this very same flash stick and be able to recover the data from it.

1 out of 5 eggsExpensive

Pros: Droped it once and it still works.

Cons: Expensive. Too big to fit in your pocket. (I had a kingston micro USB keychain that went through the wash after I bought this and it still works! Why did I buy this thing again?) Big.

Other Thoughts: Do yourself a favor and stay away from Corsair Rebates. Or at least don't plan on getting paid.

4 out of 5 eggsVery Cool

Pros: I love the Terminator 2 feel of this drive. When I unscrew the the lid from the main USB portion I'm reminded of the scene in the Terminator movie where's Miles Dyson retrieves the broken CPU from the original terminator from it's glass case. It is very sturdy and hard to lose. I have run an old dog tag chain through the lanyard hole and I never forget it. I suppose you can put in on your keychain. It's also waterproof which is a plus.

Cons: It's a tad bulky compared to most USB flash drives.

Other Thoughts: I should have purchased a larger size. The company should consider making different colors or one that has a glass/clear plastic side so you can see the drive inside.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for keeping sensitive info close

Pros: I got this as part of a combo and my first thought was the same as a friend of mines. This is way to large and cumbersome. However, it mounts easily on my key chain and I have found the perfect use for this device. I know keep a password protected and encrypted program on this stick that keeps up with my passwords. After being out and about and forgetting my passwords I know have them stored on my keychain. No more requesting a password change just insert flash drive and I am done.

Cons: none really. it does take up more room in my pants, but well worth it.

5 out of 5 eggsSurvivor, Yeah, It does...

Pros: D.U.R.A.B.L.E
Average data transfer. Virtually indestructible. Came with a USB extension cable, very handy. the price is amazing here at newegg. Looks super geeky.
It's big, 3.4" long and about 3/4" in diameter. You won't lose this drive in the bottom of your laptop bag. It probably won't "walk off" unnoticed either.
I have loaded this flash drive up and pulled stuff off many, many times. It's been formatted and reformatted. It's fallen into a lake, been in checked bags in a freezing cargo hold and has fallen from varying heights a few times... Ok, more than a few. This FD doesn't skip a beat. In the 2 years I've owned it I haven't lost a single piece of data... Ever...

Cons: I have none

Other Thoughts: This is a drive worth having. I have recommended this to everyone I know. I will own more of them.
