Customer Reviews

The rubber case holds up well and securely protects the clip.

The rubber casing keeps your portable flash drive safe and the large clip securely hooks onto your belt, backpack, etc, so you never lose it.

Imation software works fine, and like the password protection option.

Having never seen one of these up close, I found the picture of the unit confusing. The black you see is a pliable rubber shroud that completely encloses the drive except for the gray area you see. This makes the unit very water resistant. You have to bend and peel off the rubber in order to remove the drive from its case. The drive itself is minuscule, less than two inches long, and has no hole that would allow you to attach a lanyard.
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 owned the 1GB version of this for a long time and purchased the 4GB version for my partner. He, like I, has been thrilled with the Caribeener clip as we both keep it on our key rings at all times now. So there's never a time when we are without the ability to store files.

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.

I have used the 4GB clip for about a year now. I use it almost everyday to play music through my car stereo, which means that it is constantly running. It plays music smoothly, and when I change songs or albums, it quickly accesses other folders. I would buy this flash drive just because it holds a ton of music and it has quick access.

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.

If you're like me and you are constantly on the move, but always seem to lose and break your gadgets, this is the USB for you. The rubber casing keeps your portable flash drive safe and the large clip securely hooks onto your belt, backpack, etc, so you never lose it. This flash drive has taken me safely through grad school (running back and forth between the library, classes, home and work). The 4GB has been enough memory for all of my papers and homework assignments. I highly recommend it.

I started using the Imation flash drive quite by accident when our secretary pulled one from stock after I left my previous flash drive an hour's drive from the office. At first I was annoyed by the large size of the device, which is especially true when the carabiner is attached, but I soon attached it directly as a keychain fob, and it has since become my favorite flash drive.

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.

Several years ago I used to own a 1 Gbyte Lexar "jump" drive with a rubber-surround case that works like this one. I just loved it. I had that drive for years without loosing it once or having it malfunction once, with the drive being carried in my pocket on my keychain the whole time. I'm proof this concept works. Lexar stopped making that usb stick. I've never seen a stick since - until this one - that I felt would really last carried in a pocket on a keychain with keys, tools, flashlight, etc.

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.
