5 out of 5 eggs Great thumbdrive! 10/17/2007

This review is from: Newegg 8GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model L8GB-RBST

Pros:

Small, thin, fast, bright light. The fact that it is thin allows it to fit right next to another USB connector (many thumbdrives are fat and will not fit into recessed USB ports). Also, the very bright activity light is on the END of the drive making it easy to view.

Cons:

Cap could get lost. Looks like a stick of gum- I might mistakenly eat it.
One big complaint- the Win98SE driver and 'password protection tool' is not included and cannot be downloaded anywhere on NewEgg (I'm sure this was an oversight and I hope it is corrected).

Other Thoughts:

Don't believe the guy who says this thumbdrive is slow; I have my own IT business and have used many such drives. I clocked this one at 9 MB/s which is 3X faster than my 4G JetFlash. Also, it WILL store large files right out of the box. I copied a 2GB file with no problem in 220 seconds.
