Good for "low profile" use
on November 24, 2011
Note that these USB drives are designed for notebooks, tablets, and car audio. They are supposed to be plugged in and seldom pulled out, or pulled out fairly rarely. They are harder to insert and pull out than the bigger size USB drives, so it may not be good for daily use of carrying it around.
The couple of times I pulled it out, it fell to the ground and was a bit hard to find, because it is so small and difficult to get a hold of. If you need to insert and pull it from the USB slot often, a fishing string can be added to the side of the USB drive (there is a small hole to insert the string and tie a knot).
There is a small orange indicator light and I kind of like it. When it is writing or reading, the light will blink attractively.
A simple speed test of copying and reading a 1GB file was done on Windows 7:
Write: 4.10 MB/s
Read: 16.5 MB/s
