2 out of 5 eggsDisappointed-updated review

Pros: ReallyTuff, Small, 32Gb

Cons: Was way fast when new: 15 -39 Mbps. trans. 8)
But after formatting it trying to set it up as a boot flash drive, It has slowed to a crawl in Win7 64 and WinXP, with or without Ready boost even after using the OEM format util. it runs at : 3-9 Mbps.
In Linux (Ubuntu and Debian) it runs faster: 8- 16 Mbps. ???
I have tried every usb format util. I could find. You should never format this drive? 8(

Other Thoughts: I have cked my usb ports :USB2.0 Hi-Speed
NewEgg still get 5 Stars.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Well worth the cash, runs faster on my system than my old 8GB flash drive. 8)
Room for all of my portable USB utilities, Ebook collections, games and vids. Plus extra space for more.
NewEgg Shipped this to me in less than 24 hours with UPS ground. OUTSTANDING!!!
I have been a customer with NewEgg since the 90's because they have the best customer service.

Cons: You would not want to FORCE this drive into a USB port upside down. It may short out the port and or break out the inside piece in the port.
I would suggest the: Silicon Power Touch T02 drive to avoid shorting out the port.

Other Thoughts: If you have a loose or worn USB port you may have problems with this drive. It is not the drive at fault. You might fix this with a layer of black elec. tape applied on the backside, opposite the contacts on the flash drive. You may also use fingernail polish or epoxy, but they may void your warranty.
Better yet a new computer case would fix it too. 8)

I bought this Flash Drive because it looks like it is the tuffest one sold here for the money. I will update this later review later.

5 out of 5 eggsA Great Little Flash Drive

Pros: Very small and fast. Great little USB flash drive. It's worth more than I paid for it. It's unbelievable 32 GB can fit in something this size.

Cons: It's chrome surface shows every fingerprint. Might drive persons with OCD nuts.

1 out of 5 eggsPretty Color!

Pros: Like I said, folks, this flash drive comes in a beautiful silver color. It'll look great on the cover of Runway!

Cons: Besides the asthetically pleasing nature of the item (Didyou catch the sarcasm there?) I can't imagine why anyone would buy this. The data speed is awful, and I have to keep pressure on the drive to get it to stay connected. It reminds me of an old Sandisk that I took apart, then soldered back together. Now I'm out $18, and STILL need another flash drive. Thanks, guys.

5 out of 5 eggsBest I've Purchased

Pros: Durable, Water resistant, Fast Transfer Rate.

Cons: The chain that came with it broke after a few weeks. Nothing big though. I keep it in my wallet so, I don't need the chain.

Other Thoughts: Need to make a usb 3.0 version of this...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat, small and cheap flash drive

Pros: It's been a while since I purchased a new flash drive and I was shocked by how tiny this one is.

Really inexpensive. 32GB for 17 bucks, how can you go wrong?

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: I bought this specifically to play MP3s from the head unit in my car. I've had it for 4 months and when I use it, it is consistently being read from while I'm driving. Even though it does get warm and is pretty heavily used, I haven't had any problems with it.

5 out of 5 eggsSurprisingly Durable - Great Value!

Pros: Cheap
Durable (see below!!)
Works like it should

Cons: Gets pretty hot after data transfers

Other Thoughts: Great little gadget. Got one for someone as a birthday present and thought I'd grab one myself since it was cheap. To make a long story short: had it in a pocket, forgot to take it out, got washed, pulled it out of the washer--and it still works flawlessly to this day! You can't beat that, especially for the price!

4 out of 5 eggsNice occasional use flash drive

Pros: -smaller than most of my keys
-usb 2.0 (avg 8-10MB write speed)
-fits snug in usb port
-nice build quality

Cons: -gets HOT (almost enough to burn your fingers) after a 5GB xfer

Other Thoughts: I really like this "keydrive" as I call it. Its small and pretty strong for its size. You can squeeze it in the middle and not feel an indent. The only problem I have with it is the temperature this thing gets during transfers... I put Backtrack r5 (about 3.4GB) and a few other files and about burnt myself unplugging it. It cooled down within a minute but still... careful. Other than that I love it. I like how its smaller than most of my keys.
