5 out of 5 eggsWrite protected & metal

Pros: Title says most of it: Large enough to install a bootable Linux keeping a vfat partition for storage off Win machines. With write protect on you can run favorite Win apps off the vfat connected to a virus compromised machine w/o danger. I've had the 2GB version for years with daily writes & no problems.

Cons: None if the price doesn't stop you = quality costs!

5 out of 5 eggsFANTASTIC USB Drive

Pros: Drive is very fast, very high quality feel. Read write switch allows me to take out the worst of viruses with no worries.

Cons: The read/write switch is actually backwards in my opinion. Away from lock actually locks the drive. No big deal I got used to it in a day

5 out of 5 eggsLove this drive

Pros: Read Only!

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: As a tech there is nothing worse than having your tools comprimised by a bug. Read Only USB Sticks should be mandatory for anyone fighting viruses and malware
