The drive itself is as small as you think, about the size of a quarter. The cap is magnetized so it stays on. Another benefit is, since it's magnetized, you can stick the cap to the backside of the drive while it's plugged in. The body of the drive is aluminum so the cap only sticks over the USB end or directly on the "butt", so you can't stick the cap to the "body" of the drive. If you're worried about magnets near your data, don't worry. Magnets don't effect flash based media like drives and SD card, only spinning hard drives. (And this magnet is so weak, it's unlikely to even affect those) The drive is all metal and feels pretty sturdy for a small drive.
All in all, it's a nice little backup drive. It's small and feels very well-built. If I had one complaint (other than being a bit slow), there's no way to attach this to a keychain or anything. Usually you see a little eyelet hole on the body of the drive so you can run a thread through it and tie it to a keyring, but that's not here. But that's a minor complaint and not worth knocking a star off. I'm happy with this little drive.
8.5 mb/sec for 1.5-3 gb on the drive
6.5 mb/sec after 3gb.
Not too bad for this price. This is 2-3 times faster than the Kingston which runs at 3.5 mb/sec constantly.
I'm giving it 5 stars because of the price but it could use a place to attach to a keychain etc
People have been gravitating towards smaller and smaller items for a while now. And this is one of the times where it isn't as desirable as it is, say, on a phone.
It's so small that holding it properly whilst inserting it actually becomes slightly difficult. Especially if you are at an odd angle. And losing it will be considerably easier.
Also, the cap is magnetic, and it's not a magnet of extreme strength either. So losing the cap at some point is also a possibility.
I am actually trying to figure out a way to make it bigger, or perhaps mounting it to something else, like a keychain. But there is no hole for that, so maybe some black epoxy, a bit of small chain, and a metal ring might do the job.
I must add, this thing is slow. For jobs which don't require speed, it's great. But I learned the hard way that this thing is really slow. How slow? Well, I don't usually look at the specs and speeds listed, they always claim fast speeds which they never achieve in actual use, and this is a classic example of that, it isn't nearly as fast as it is advertised. I found this out by loading a few HD films on it, and placing into a media center connected to a TV. The HD would not play correctly, and had the typical stutter which you get when the media can't keep up. I then tried the same films, in the same media player, into the same TV, on three SD cards put into a USB adapter, and they played perfectly. All three cards were from different manufacturers, and only one of them was a Class 10 card.Read more ›
Other than that, I have no objections. This is tiny, handy, and always with me. If I'm ever in a tense situation where I need to hurriedly copy the secret plans off a villain's computer before the guard comes around the corner and sicks the hounds on me, or the bees, or the hounds with bees in their mouth and when they bark they shoot bees at you, then I'll be well equipped for the task.

Handy, but not durable. I leave it plugged into my car stereo, so it doesn't get moved very often. Yet, one of the first few times I unplugged it, it started to fall apart. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Alex Online
The magnets aren't strong enough to keep the top on when it's in my bag, so that makes the top pretty much useless. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Tim
Quite minature for a USB stick.
Much less likely to be banged around than regular-sized USB sticks.
Downside? USB 2. Read more
