Pros:U3 Software Included
Durable
Compact, Portable, Capless

Cons:Takes some time to launch

The Bottom Line: Whether its for school, to watch movies, or to store computer restoring tools; I highly recommend this item. Especially for its price.


In my opinion, this flash drive is a very excellent peice of equipment. It comes with U3 Software which allows you to install various programs, games and set a password on your Flash Drive. Its capless; retracts inside the case, which I would say is a good thing because I usually lose small objects or just throw them away because of it being too troublesome. Pretty durable considering I usually keep it in the front of my backpack and have had it for several months now (pencils and pencil sharpeners have been known to break there due to me constantly dropping my backpack [with lots of books, papers and journals inside]). And on top of it all, I've once forgotten to take it out of my pants before putting in the washer (and dryer) and when I found it, it was still working fine. The USB Locks when extended outside of case. I use the USB mainly to watch movies, play games, to save and transfer school docments, and to put computer fixing tools on it (pretty much the computer geek of the family, so I help fix computers and get rid of viruses, comes in handy). Has worked excellently for me since I got it.
The down side:
If you use the password feature and happen to forget your password (or put in the incorrect password 3~5 times), it will be locked forever. Only way to 'unlock' would be to completely erase all your files on the USB. Because of this (and time restraints) I, personally, no longer use the password feature. The U3 system takes a couple minutes to load (doesn't open instantly like basic USBs), but you can uninstall it. Comes with around 7.5GB. File transfer speed I cannot comment on as I have no other USB to compare it to. Took less than a minute (around 30 seconds) for me to move a 700MB movie file from the USB to my desktop. About 3 to 4 minutes to move that file into the USB.
I've used on a XP desktop, Vista Desktop and Laptop, and Windows 7 laptops. Haven't had any problems. Even thinking about buying another one, only 1.8 GB of space left on the one I have.
