Durable, attractive, and performant 8/13/2020 1:35:14 PM

Overall Review: I have this on my key ring and have the bad habit of playing with it and my keys and it has hit the ground hard a few times and keeps on ticking. Impressively durable.

Insides slide out after a year of use 8/11/2020 9:01:00 PM

Overall Review: I kept this on my keychain for about a year, used it about every day, worked awesome. One day, I noticed the plastic USB connector portion of the flash drive was poking out a bit, so I'd poke it back in every time I took it out of a computer. One day it completely fell out of the metal enclosure. I'm not sure if the glue broke or what, but I would personally look for a more traditional flash drive design.

Great storage, compact size 8/8/2020 9:29:16 AM

Pros: - Tiny size, lots of space for videos.
- Can send in the mail in a padded envelope, and the cost is next to nothing.
- Has a substantial weight when held in your hand, not light and flimsy like other USB sticks.

Cons: - A very tight fit when I plugged it into my computer's USB port. It may just have been because it was the first time using it.

Overall Review: I bought 2 of these, one to load up with videos to send my sister, and the other just for myself, as they were on sale. As I'm a Boomer, I tend not to keep up with the latest developments in hardware. I just have to say, it's astonishing how USB sticks keep getting smaller all the time, yet their storage capacity keeps increasing. Every year they seem better and better.

Fast drive, awkward shape 8/8/2020 9:09:52 AM

Pros: Fast read and write on a USB 3.0 port observed (no I didn't measure)
Small size

Cons: Shape makes it difficult to use on closely stacked USB ports, as on a desktop
Have to place in top port or it can block a port.

Overall Review: Great for laptop, less great for desktop due to height of case
