Pros: Works with readyboost. Good value
Cons: none so far
Overall Review: Newegg did good with this one. Good to buy with vista (4gb is max vista can use with readyboost) I tested the readyboost speed with other drives. there are more expensive drives that are a little faster, but this does the job. thanks newegg
Pros: ReadyBoost works just fine and low cost.
Cons: Red LED stays on solid when not moving data and the cap issue.
Overall Review: No need to format because it's seen as a bootable devise and FAT32 is better for that. "Enjoy"
Pros: great Capacity , great price,
ran HD Tune to test speeds, and have a comparison of a 1 gig Kingston traveler also new. Both tested on same computer and used same port.
HD Tune: Flash NEWEGG SM_USB20 Benchmark
Transfer Rate Minimum : 6.1 MB/sec
Transfer Rate Maximum : 13.1 MB/sec
Transfer Rate Average : 12.4 MB/sec
Access Time : 0.8 ms
Burst Rate : 11.4 MB/sec
CPU Usage : 26.3%
HD Tune: KingstonDataTraveler 2.0 Benchmark
Transfer Rate Minimum : 2.3 MB/sec
Transfer Rate Maximum : 12.5 MB/sec
Transfer Rate Average : 12.2 MB/sec
Access Time : 1.4 ms
Burst Rate : 5.9 MB/sec
CPU Usage : 23.1%
Cons: not a big problem but wish the cap had some type of lanyard to keep me from losing it eventually.
Overall Review: Newegg shipped fast and has great producst as usual, but ups droppe dteh ball and changed delivery to a day later than it was suppsoed to be.
Pros: Cheap. Quality. Looks Nice. Made in USA. A great way to support Newegg for being an awesome company. Works immediately with no hiccups and no questions asked.
Overall Review: When I buy a flash drive, it's not all about speed, I just want something that works. This does just that, it works and looks nice doing it. The drive looks nice and the LED is nice and bright. You could attach it to a keyring, although I've heard bad things about that with other drives of the similar design (The thin plastic breaks) but no complaints about that with this drive that I know of. The fact that it's made in USA it a nice added bonus, and I love to support a great company like newegg by buying their own brand of product.
Pros: Great price, high capacity. Small form factor
Cons: Removable USB cap is just asking to be lost.
Add a better cap mechanism that's harder or impossible to lose, and this product gets 5 stars instead of 4.
Overall Review: there is a small loop on the back of the device.. if i can find a usb replacement cap with a string or at least a loop/hook too, then i can connect the usb cap to the rear of the device, forever coupling the two! any suggestions?
Pros: It's 4GB, it's cheap, and it works.
Cons: None that I have come across.
Overall Review: What more could you ask for from Newegg? It's a product you'd expect from them good quality and great price.
Pros: This drive works awesome and it can't be beat for the price. Works great as a READY BOOST drive. Newegg should brand more items.
Cons: physically a little long when sticking out the back of my machine from the USB port but the machine shouldn't be sitting directly up against a wall so not really that big of a deal.
Overall Review: READY BOOST is kind of a cheesy idea but it does actually make a performance difference even when used with 2GB of sytem RAM and striped hard Drives.
Pros: ReadyBoost capable with a Lifetime Warranty at a great price and low shipping cost.
We'll see how it holds up over the course of time and how they honor their warranty of this item.
Overall Review: Can't go wrong with the size and the warranty. I ordered it for the 4GB Max capable drive support for readyboost. Although tests have shown that ready boost doesn't change that much in high RAM systems, I needed a larger flash drive anyway and it will be an added boost to my system instead of just sitting there looking pretty on the shelf. Alot of drives out there, pretty much close to the same prices but what stands this off from the crowd is reliability and their lifetime warranty. Should be a very nice investment for just about anyone.
