Poor Implementation 03/02/2009
Small form factor makes it good for portable applications and is the reason I bought this one. The 3" USB cord is great for swapping out cards on USB ports that are somewhat difficult to access (such as on the back of a laptop).
When I plugged it in to my laptop dock, the computer said that there was a "power surge" on the USB port, and the computer would promptly shut the port off, rendering it useless until I rebooted the computer.
After researching the issue, it appears this is not a rare problem with the product. The windows patch I found to fix the issue did not work, and ended up making some of my other USB devices (specifically, my mp3 player) not work.
I ended up buying another product with a thumb-drive form factor from Newegg, and I am very happy with that one.
