Pros:As big as three penies and can upload one gig in under 2 Min
Cons:I heard the caps get loose after using 5-10 times, but can get replacements.
The Bottom Line: This is a great drive and my research proved Sandisk to be the best brand. I don't know why anyone would want the sandisk mini, but check it out.
This drive is extremely small, and I saw a lot of pictures before I bought it, but never appreciated it until I held it. I posted some pictures so you could see how small it actually is.

My dad had a 32 Mb Quickdrive that I bought him a couple of years ago. And I did some test with it just to compare the speed. Here are the results:
Quickdrive uploading 15.2 MB
1 Min 03 sec
Quickdrive downloading 15.2 MB
Sandisk Micro uploading 15.2 MB
Sandisk Micro downloading 15.2 MB
Sandisk Micro uploading 915 MB (small file sizes)
Sandisk Micro downloading 915 MB (344 small file sizes)
1 Min 5 Sec
Sandisk Micro deleting 915 MB (344 small file sizes)
2 Min 6 Sec
Sandisk Micro uploading 972 MB (2 Largefile sizes)
1 Min 42 Sec
Sandisk Micro downloading 972 MB (2 Largefile sizes)
Sandisk Micro deleting 972 MB (2 Largefile sizes)
You can see that loading two large files sizes was more than twice as fast as the many small files sizes. And deleting wasn't even comparable. Also during these tests the drive didn't get hot.
I hope this helped everyone out.
