1 out of 5 eggsThe advertised "removable", "hot-swappable" and "easy to carry" capabilities are more like... theoretical concepts.

Pros: Flash drive capability works as described so far.

Cons: Accessories (cap, lanyard) that came with drive are useless.
Drive can't, practically-speaking, be used for transporting data, begging the question -- "what do I use this for"?

Other Thoughts: I got a couple of these drives because I was attracted to the low profile and small form-factor. (I have a front USB port on my desktop -- which is on the floor -- and I kept bumping into my old flash drive and was afraid I'd break it one day, so this was the solution I came up with.)

As soon as I liberated this drive from it's plastic container, I started to become aware of the ways in which an insufficient amount of thought was put into the design of this product.

The drive comes with a lanyard and a plastic cap. The first thing I noticed (that may not be a big deal for some) was that there is no logical place to put the cap when the drive is in use. (It doesn't fit on the back of the drive, nor does it loop into the lanyard.) Considering the cap is smaller than the tiny flash drive itself, I consigned myself to the fact the cap would become lost on my desk within 0.8 seconds. It later turned out the cap really wasn't needed anyway since the drive wasn't intended to ever be removed from my computer anyways..

Anywho, I popped the flash drive in the USB port, and as far as I can tell (I got ~2 months ago and have used it on and off.), it works fine for what it claims to be -- a 4GB USB 2 flash drive.

Eventually, it came time that I dared to attempt to remove my flash drive to transport my data to another computer. It was at this point that it began to suffer a bout of acute separation anxiety. Under "Specifications", the "Dimensions" list the length of the entire drive as 0.71" but that number speaks to the entire drive. When it is inserted, the part of the drive that ISN'T inside the USB port -- what I'll call the "derierre" of the drive -- is just 0.5 cm (or 0.2" -- one fifth of an inch!) in length. This isn't very much to grab onto.

If you look at the product pictures closely, you may notice that the horizontal ends of the "derierre" actually have grips on them. So you'd think it would be easy to just grab onto those. Sadly, you would be incorrect. The indentations on those grips are actually only approximately 2mm in depth, which makes them good for absolutely nothing.

Of course, the most obvious way to remove the flash drive, one would think, would be the lanyard. One would be wrong. It turns out the piece of plastic that the lanyard wraps around in the "derierre" of the drive is /soo/ flimsy that it can't withstand being used to remove the device. Upon the first removal attempt of every one of my flash drives (each time on a completely different computer), that plastic would break without fail.

I was only ultimately able to remove the drives by using a swiss army knife to pry them out.

I should have just saved myself the aggravation and just plugged my old flash drive into the USB port on the back of my desktop since if I stick with these, I'm giving up on the prospect of removing them at all anyways..

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for my car!

Pros: Low profile design. Low cost.

Also available in larger sizes, if you need more than 4GB.

I got this for my new work truck, needed something low profile. A longer USB stick would inevitably get snapped by a dog jumping in or something, so this is perfect.

Cons: Comes with a small lanyard that you can just throw away, it is useless.

USB 2.0, I knew that when purchasing, so not a big deal. Might be an issue for people buying the larger models who intend to use it frequently (I only add/remove MP3's every few weeks).

Other Thoughts: Smart car? lol

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for Smart car!

Pros: Extremely low-profile design, it fits in my 2013 Smart car glove box USB with plenty of room for other stuff (dont have to worry about mashing up a thumb-drive on accident). The transfer speed is also very quick which is a huge bonus for its small size.

Cons: The cars USB port is a bit stiff (as its brand new) so pulling out the drive takes a bit of finger tip pressure to pull it out, I don't mind it, but someone with arthritis may find this a very annoying little device.

Other Thoughts: Again, this device is for my Smart car to play music while driving around. So I don't unplug/replug it very often (just to add music occasionally). If you want a low-profile USB drive to keep things on like this it works beautifully! But if you're using it as your primary device at work/school you may have a bit of frustration (and or losing it).

5 out of 5 eggsworks great for my application

Pros: The small space this USB Flash drive takes up allowed me to use it on the back of my case as a USB boot drive without it looking like something awkward was sticking out of my machine. yay!

Cons: No cons noticed.

Other Thoughts: I didn't get much of a chance to evaluate performance - this is being used as a FreeBSD boot drive so it doesn't get high i/o.
The cap is completely detachable which for a normal USB might be close to falling into the con category, but for me (i don't want this permanently attached USB drive to have a cap dangling around), it works fine. Just not sure what to actually do with this cap now :) !
