PNY Attache does what I want... what more can I say

Pros:good price, easy to use, small size, light weight.
Cons:afraid I'm gonna lost the cover.
The Bottom Line: If you can't always have your PC handy, carry a flash instead, stocked with ecards, photos and whatever you want to show people.
I bought the PNY Attache 256MB because Staples was running a discount + rebate deal that made the price only $10 for me. I had to hassle a little to get the rebate, but in due time I got it.

It comes with a neck strap and a redundant USB cable. You can, of course, plug the key directly into your USB port. However, for older machines that unintelligently have that in the back, the cable brings it round to a more convenient place -- if you don't mind having yet another snake laying around on your desktop.
It has a little indicator light that's on when it's working, and a little microswitch that you can use to write protect it.
We use the key like most people: to move files back and forth between home and school network (school network no longer accepts outside emails!), swap pictures and suck cool things off other people's computers.
The con is that there is no place to park the lid when the key is in use, and I'm afraid it will get lost. If they had made a little channel down the side for the neck cord to tuck into, and put a little depression in the end of the cap then you could snap it on the back backwards like you do for some markers. The little thin cord that connects the key to the strap looks flimsy, but it hasn't broken yet.
All in all, this little thing has been a useful gadget to have.
