The Iomega drive used expensive media and many computer's didn't have one. The LS120 format never caught on. CD-R & CD-RW can be a pain when you're only recording small programs. Also, CD's are larger and normally require that you carry them around in their own protective case. These are some of the reason's why the Floppy Disk has hung around soooo long. So what's the product that may finally supplant the venerable Floppy Disk (Dell has already made floppies an option on many of their computers)? I think that you're looking at it.
I own this Lexar 128 JumpDrive and think it's performance/price ratio is awesome. Almost every modern computer has a USB input, so this solves the format/compatibility problem. The size is extremely small and durable, which makes product excellent for transporting. USB 1 is good for about 10MBPS, so you can fill up all 122.5MB of this drive in a couple minutes (yeah, it's not quite 128MB as you'd be lead to believe). Finally the software/drivers (5MB download if you have Win 98) work like a charm.
This is an excellent product solution and if you are looking for any negatives, these are the only items I would consider worth pointing out: drive is not quite 128MB, some larger EXE files are larger than 122.5MB and therefore will not fit on this drive, and finally, although unit is very compact, the dimensional width of the JumpDrive may suck up 2 USB ports in horizontal USB configurations (e.g. - your notebook).

I love this device. I use it to move files between work and home. I used to use CD-RW and this is so much better, faster, and more convenient to carry. I access it on W98, XP, and 2000 across dozens of PCs.
This Lexar product is shorter than many of the competiting products. That's good for me. Some of the PCs I access have limited clearance next to the USB port and this one fits in nicely.
The finish is very smooth and its nice that way. I was concerned the bright purple is not the most "professional" looking (which is true) but I also like it because it really sticks out visually against muted colors (grays and blues) at work. I can spot it easily wherever I've placed it. I wish it was available in other colors as options--bright green, yellow, orange, etc.
For the key "loop" position, there are two USB drive designs. This one has the loop on the drive, others have it on the cap. The cap on this product is just a squeeze fit, it doesn't "click" on so its good that it is not on the cap. However, I dislike dragging out my keys to access the drive so I don't even put it on my keychain--I don't want my keys dangling next to the PC. A competing design with the loop on the cap would be preferable to me if the cap was securely connected to the drive. The drawback of that type of design is that if it detaches and gets lost you are left only with the cap, not the drive. Still, right now I just keep the thing in my pocket most of the time. It's so small, I hardly notice it and its just fine that way.
On this drive, you can insert the cap perpendicularly into the slot on the end of the drive to help keep from losing the cap.
This product does not have any write protect switch, special password security, or anything fancy.

I initially bought this to transfer files from computer to computer, but I ended up storing many of my favorite mp3s, digital pictures, and some documents and carrying this little thing around to have at my disposal whenever I needed them.
I love this thing's size, a little shorter than a stick of gum and about the width of a pen. I was able to keep in my pocket without an unsightly bulge.
A closed loop at its end makes it easy to attach to a key-ring.
A light light's up when the computer is writing or reading to/from it. Just remember to not remove it from the USB port while this light is on, and your information and files are secure.
I'm not a "techy" but from personal use, it seems that that the read/write time is fast enough. When it was full of 120MB of mp3s (you can't store more than that for some reason), it took about 2 minutes to transfer back to my desktop.
Since this is a re-writable "drive" you don't have to buy more than a couple. I think that the ones smaller than 128MB will not be of muc benefit in the longrun. 128 is good, but 256 is the best, and the prices are dropping.

Transfering files is so easy with this device, and I have had great results with it. I have had it for about 6 months and it has already payed for itself many times over in terms of saved time and saved resources (faster than burning a cd - and if you don't have a cd-rw around - you end up wasting a disk if all you want to do is transfer files once)
As far as the criticisms I have read her I just would say
A) I have had this thing attatched to my keychain scince the day I recieved it, and I have had no trouble with it. It bangs against the dashboard when I drive, it gets tossed around my backpack, and occasionally it will get yanked out of a computer by the key ring - and so far it has held up 100 percent. I don't think robustnes is an issue unless you plan on taking this thing on Safari.
B) Yes, it is a USB 1.1 device so it is slower, but it only holds about 128 megs, so at the most it will take two minutes to fill up, instead of about 30 seconds with a 2.0 device.
C) I use this device on a Mac OSX, a Dell running XP, and a Thinkpad running 98SE and it works perfectly on all of them. For SE I had to download a driver that was one of the easiest driver installs I have ever done in my life.
D) The one criticism I agree with is - the cap should be redesigned (or they need to just sell the device with a few extra caps - how much could a few plastic caps coast?). Depending on the temperature (in the heat the plastic cap expands substantially more than the metal USB port does) it can become extreemly loose, and more than once I have had it fall off as I pulled my keys from my pocket - so you do need to keep an eye on the cap. But, at one point I had thought I lost the cap and carried the device around without a cap for weeks and nothing bad happened.
