Pros: This was a great drive for around 2 years.
Cons: Unfortunately, the door belt broke after 2 years. No apparent cause, just wouldn't open one day and some investigation revealed the cause. I don't think I've ever had this happen, and it may be a fluke for this brand also; or it may be a part that they went a bit TOO cheap on. No way to tell.
This drive was also just a bit harder than most to get the faceplate off. In this case it didn't matter, but if you're planning on painting it, it may be a consideration.
This review is from: PQI U822V 8GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model 6822-008GR5XXX
Pros: Haven't done any tests to verify the speeds, but the construction is nice and the size is fine.
Comes with a keyring clip and a small chain (can use one or both).
Cons: It's formatted in some odd manner such that the Windows USB/DVD Download Tool wasn't able to format it (so that it could be used as a Windows 7 installation drive). I was able to clean it using these steps (found online):
Open command prompt.
Type in command line
SELECT DISK # (USB Stick)
CREATE PARTITION PRIMARY
SELECT PARTITION 1
(Takes a while on some steps)
(I don't think it's U3, or any similar launch, but I have autorun disabled so I'm not positive.)
Also includes some trial software for (IIRC) anti-virus.
Pros: I like these keyboards -- I've owned several different versions.
I like the way they look, and the way they feel.
Cons: 2 BIG problems:
1 -- the paint will wear off on common keys and you'll have a smudge on the clear plastic base instead of a nice letter.
2 -- many games will detect these keyboards a gamepads AND keyboards. So you'll end up with phantom input from the phantom gamepad. (Usually end up walking one direction with no way to stop.) This has been a problem for years unfortunately and still hasn't been resolved. Something to do with the way it presents itself to Windows.
