This one has been extremely reliable.

The SwissBit does all it advertises and for me is an easy way to have a flash drive with me everywhere but in the shower.
Disaster Dude
I like the small LED more than the tweezers so the light stays.

I'm not the type of person to carry around a pocket knife and have a drawer full of USB drives. I love this one. I use my USB drive almost daily so it is pretty important to me. This one has been extremely reliable.

What surprised me is how often I use the other features of this tool. The knife comes in handy cutting open boxes, plastic tags, etc. The scissors are useful too. I'm also always crawling behind computers looking for cables or something and the little LED light is very helpful. It is small and compact and fits easily in my pocket.

I have the 1GB version for over a year and don't go anywhere without it. I recently thought I lost it and immediately ordered two of these 2 GB versions. That is how much I love these.

My only minor gripes (both of which have easy solutions ).

- Sometimes (rarely), the knife/handle part of the tool causes the USB drive to not have enough room to plug in to tight spaces. However, it is easy to simply remove the USB hard drive from the tool and just use that.

- I had to check in a carry on bag once because of this tool. They were going to confiscate it and I totally forgot I had it with me on a recent plane trip. I actually have a travel case for this that attaches to the USB hard drive and you leave the knife/tools part at home. I just forgot but it is a slight negative if you travel frequently.

- Even though the USB drive fold in for storage, it can gather a bit more lint than some of my other USB drives with lids or that retract. Not a huge deal and lint blows right off.

Anyway, those are very minor issues and don't really detract from the usefullness of this overall tool.

I have owned the 1gb model in the past. I just bought the 2gb model, and although the packaging and manual references the SecureLOCK function, this unit does not have it. I called technical support (18 mins hold time, got disconnected, 16 more mins hold time at 10am PST). The tech support guy thinks the software is available for download but couldn't find it (I spent 30 mins looking before I called technical support). The URL in the manual is no good (404).

The warranty is good, but if you have to send it in, expect it to be gone for 60 days. On two occasions with my 1gb model I had to send it in. Once was a defect with the memory stick, the other time the scissors broke (not just the spring, the entire scissor arm broke off). The first time, I got so frustrated with the amount of time it took, I nearly bought another one to replace it. The second time, in anticipation of the delay, I bought the 2gb model.

I previously owned the 32MB version and basically used all the tools regularly. The one I used the most was the pen. After that ran out of ink, I had to get a new one. The software that comes with it allows you to password protect the USB. So I had 2 partitions, one that was password protected and the other for partition for less important stuff. But if you use Macs, it can't read the password protected portion. It can only read the other partition. :-( That's why it's only getting 4 stars. I use both Macs and PCs regularly, and it creates more hassle trying to remember which partition to put my files.

It's a nice tool, but I wish it had more gadgets on it. It only has a knife, nail file and scissors. And a pen. But the 2GB flash stick is great. All in all a good buy.

This is my second SwissBit knife... had to replace one that was purloined from my checked baggage during a Hawaii trip. I loved my old one, and love this one even more. The flash drive works great, and resides in a practical pocket knife that is small enough to keep on one's person every day. The white LED light is better than the old red one... is now a practical light source for close-in work. The device is more than durable enough to carry around daily... my old one survived a trip through the washer and dryer, working perfectly afterward, and absolutely wrinkle-free to boot. The SwissBit does all it advertises and for me is an easy way to have a flash drive with me everywhere but in the shower. (I never was a lanyard kinda guy) Everytime I use it among "civillians" it gets great comments. Highly recommended.

Wow what a great product! All of the quality of Swiss's classic knife and the technology I was looking for.
The knife is very solid and the flash drive works flawlessly. When I am showing my friends my new "toy," I go through the usual knife/nail file/scissors and then show them the ball point pen (writes well) and the LED light (really bright at night), then I flip out the 2GB flash drive and that's usually where they take it from my hands to get a better look. I have never removed the drive from the knife, but the instructions say you can just snap it out. I recommend leaving the drive in a semi-closed "V" with the weight of your keys close to the computers USB port if you are not going to remove it from the knife. Thanks Victorinox for making the exact product I was looking for.

I primarily purchased this for the flash drive component. It replaced a 1GB swissmemory I'd returned because the pen portion broke off (yes, I actually used it, too!) and I needed the larger capacity. Well, when I got this new one, the flash drive seemed a little slower. 6 months later, it died. Completely. All my data is gone. Granted, I backed up what I needed, but I'd expect this to last longer than 6 months. Also, the price - you can buy a new 2GB flash drive for $20 now, and the silver alox version of the swiss army portion of the tool only costs another $20... even adding a courtesy $20 for the convenience of having the two-in-one, that only puts it at $60, half of what it's going for here. Not the best deal, but it's still a cool tool.
