To me, the drive is way too tiny and susceptible to loss. It does have a blue LED and copied 300 MB of files in about two minutes.
I would have returned it in a heartbeat except for the reason I sought it out. Unlike most drives, it has a tiny read-only write protect dip switch on the side that shields the contents of the drive from malware infection. This feature is not mentioned in the amazon description but does appear on the manufacturer's web site. Access to the switch is recessed and very small. You cannot flip the switch with your fingernail, you must use something like the metal tip of a mechanical pencil to move it. Most users will probably not even notice the switch is there. The Kanguru FlashBlu 2 is another example of a flash drive with a write-protect switch, but it is a bit more expensive.
I keep my passwords on mine, so no matter where I am, I have access to them. (It is encrypted.) But something like PortableApps will make this even more useful.
No downsides that I've found.
The main factors leading to that preference are the durability of the rubber flash holder (I've broken half a dozen Sandisk Cruzers, mini flip USB drives, Patriot drives, etc.) and this is the first one that is durable enough to live on my key chain. Another factor is that the flash drive itself is small, slotting in easily among a forest of USB cables in front or back panels of the machines I use.
Detaching the thumbdrive from the fob to put it into a machine is a mixed blessing in itself. It makes it easy to leave it attached after having spent a couple of hours debugging some customer's application environment, but it also means that the USB connection isn't carelessly broken off by someone walking past, or just by the weight of the attached keychain. Never the less, I recommend encrypting any sensitive data you might put on the drive since it is quite possible to lose one, but I tend to lose a lot of stuff.
Lastly the drive is big enough, fast enough, and cheap enough for my needs.
The most critical feature though for me is its small size. I broke two flash drives in my car stereo because they project too far from the face of the stereo and got caught on things or people going in and out of the car. This clip drive has an extremely small profile that works perfectly in my car stereo - or projecting from my computer when I am loading in new music.
The transfer rate is incredibly fast given the amount of information that I move on and off my drive all the time. I have used several different brands and this one definitely matches or beats their speeds.
The rubber case holds up well and securely protects the clip. It is easy to take the drive out but it cannot fall out or be knocked out. Now that the price is lower on this drive, I will be buying a second one.
I'm impressed in every way with this Imation stick!
* The actual stick pops out of the rubber case when you bend the rubber, just like the Jump drive did. That means you don't have your entire keychain attached to your laptop when you plug the stick in, like you would with a pivot usb stick. The rubber is stiff enough, and the "nose" of the stick fits tightly in a rectangular hole in the rubber like the Jump drive did, that there is not much chance the stick would ever come out of the rubber case on its own, not even with a pocket full of stuff. I never once had the Jump drive pop out of its rubber case on its own.
* The USB stick itself is tiny - 1/3 the length of the old Jump drive - so its not going to get caught on things. Length was the one gripe I had about the old Jump drive.
* The software that comes with it works ***great*** to partition the drive in half (or however much you want to use) so that I have one public partition and one private password-protected partition. A 3rd grader could use this software - and probably has. :-) When you first plug the stick in all that is visible is the public partition, which includes a copy of their software. Initially the public partition is set to the full size of the stick.Read more ›

Love this item - I hang it on my purse and have the flash drive wherever I am. This has saved my butt several times!Published 16 months ago by Renae M.
After about 6 months of use, the rubber holder for the drive cracked and it can no longer be used. The drive itself works fine, however.Published 18 months ago by mongoose
Good product with external lock to prevent virus attack when used in public or virus infested computer.
Should be able to get it in Asia easily.
Storage is so cheap now and I feel the price is not justified. It feels as if the clip is more expensive than the flash drive. Nevertheless, it is a good product.Published on September 8, 2013 by Habeeb

The Lock works, but I didn't realize that the silver part is the flash drive and comes out of the rubber sleeve around it. This makes it easy to forget. Read morePublished on June 12, 2013 by lingomanaz
