5 out of 5 eggsHow does this still work!?

Pros: This thing is awesome. I don't know a lot on how one flash drive can be better than another, but it's relatively cheap for it's size which should support most peoples needs.

I've also washed this thing in the washing machine three times and it will works when it comes out.

Cons: The loop on the top of it broke off pretty fast but that's a minor con for something that can apparently be submerged in water.

4 out of 5 eggswon't stay together

Pros: small, simple, easy to carry

Cons: My drive separated into three (3) pieces - mount, cover, metal drive contents - after a year. Merely annoying - probably a drop of superglue will keep the drive in the mount.

4 out of 5 eggsgets HOT! works well.

Pros: I managed to partition this drive in to two separate partitions. One for Linux , and the other for Windows7. It makes a great BOOT drive to replace a live CD, not for OS install (on to or from the drive, see cons.)

Cons: Due to the fact that this drive gets hot fast I would not recommend it for installing or running an OS for a long period of time. There is after all a micro SD on the other side of the USB. Wright cycles are also limited. (so I took off one egg)

Other Thoughts: If you want it, buy it. It does me well.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks good.

Pros: Works like it should. I read reviews of the plastic loop breaking. I can see how this could happen. Does not matter to me much. I am using it in a VMware USB Boot system.

Cons: Plastic Loop breaking? (Has not happend to me but can happen with ease.)

Other Thoughts: Great for a small USB stick for VMware or any other "bootable" distro.

4 out of 5 eggsHitting and missing

Pros: very small, makes it easy to use in a racked server with the door shut. (we have lost a few usb drives to people closing open doors...) 8gb gives us enough room to store Server OS with smartstart folder as well

Cons: For some reason on a handfull of our HP desktops, we have to use a usb extension cable for the desktop to read from the usb key. Very weird and we have no explanation why.

Other Thoughts: I have MANY usb based devices that i plug into my desktop, these are the ONLY ones that have problems. Also we purchased 5 of these at one time and EACH one has the problem. It works in the server and with a cable on my desktop so we live with it.

Also, doesn't write as fast as my patriot usb drive :)

3 out of 5 eggsTiny but my loop broke too

Pros: Really tiny, lots of storage space (I got the 16GB version) and inexpensive. Fits well on my keychain.

Cons: Like the previous reviewer the keychain loop broke on mine also. I didn't even drop it, it broke in my pocket. I guess moving (and probably twisting) around with my keys was enough to break it. You can see from the picture how thin the loop is.

Other Thoughts: I love how small it is so I'll probably epoxy a tougher loop on it.

2 out of 5 eggsDoes not hold up for what it is designed for

Pros: Tiny and stylish on keychain. Works great for what I use it for - storing music to listen at work.

Cons: The plastic loop is flimsy and will probably break on you if you ever drop the drive.

Other Thoughts: This drive is designed for someone to put on their keychain. I rarely drop my keychain, but when I did drop it in a supermarket checkout line from five feet, the loop broke, which means I can no longer carry it attached to my keychain. I fastened a wire trash-bag tie with tape to the drive. With that setup, it certainly looks much less stylish and I'm not sure how well it will hold up. I do not have plastic welding tools with me to permanent fix it. But couldn't HP have created a plastic weld so it would not break?
