2 out of 5 eggsVery Basic Thumb/Flash drive

Pros: Small, metal, seems sturdy

Cons: Only basic, doesn't work with my car stereo, gets recognized, however it always says the drive is empty. Gets hot when using as a bootable live tool.

Other Thoughts: Fine for basic, small file transfer, works okay for bootable, but gets hot.

4 out of 5 eggsCompact, easy to remove, seems sturdy, not fast

Pros: Easy to remove
Compact
Mostly metal

Cons: The plastic that makes up the hole at one end seems very thing and might break.
Not very fast

Other Thoughts: Using a magnet, see that most of the drive is magnetic except for the black end with the hole in it.

Plastic hole seems thin and might break.

The metal part of the drive has a smoke tint to it.

Comes with 3 1/2 “ beaded chain that is 1 1/2" when made into loop. Once on my key ring total length including chain is 2 1/2 "

When inserted into the computer, the flash drive extends 1/2 inch.

Times for copying 10 large files totalling about 2.4GB. My laptop has a USB 2.0 port and the operating system is Ubuntu Linux.

Silicon Power Touch T01 Mini 8GB USB 2.0 - approx 10 minutes

Patriot Xporter XT Rage 16GB - a little over 3 minutes

The flash drive is small, easy to remove and aside from the thin plastic end that the chain loops through, seems like it should hold up on my keyring.

I have faster USB flash drives but on my key ring this is more convenient.

1 out of 5 eggsRun your money through a shredder

Pros: Small form factor.

Cons: Ridiculously slow throughput, fails multiple surface tests.

Other Thoughts: Run your money through a shredder. It's an easier way to waste your money than to buy this product. Throughput is HALF that of a Kingston DT Micro, and the device fails several surface read tests (I can read real data from it, but with so many standard tests failing, I can't rely on data integrity or long-term viability of device). This thing is junk. Don't waste your money.

3 out of 5 eggs8gb? Try 7.20gb!

Pros: Plugged in and it works. I guess the price is decent for the storage. VERY small and comes with a little key chain.

Cons: you only get 7.2/8gb (90%) of what the product promises.

Other Thoughts: Ordered 4 of these to send to an army buddy who just went on his second tour.

Apparently companies round up from 7.74gb of "Free space" to 8gb and really, 7.74gb of freespace only equates to an actual 7.20gb that is usable.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat form factor - only average performance

Pros: Fabulous small form factor - about as small as one can get with real full metal USB plug

Cons: only average performance

Other Thoughts: I think the manufacturers may have been clever in the performance of this flash drive - using USBDeview - the benchmark is impressive for Write speed.

BUT using the more comprehensive ATTObench reveals this to peak at 32k blocks with 12.27MB/s Write, and with 64k blocks 16.87MB/s Read -
This drops significantly using 2MB blocks it is only 6MB/s Write and 16.11MB/s Read, which is only average, and for 8GB might be considered a tag slow.....
