Size: small. retracted, it's 1.5" long.
Performance and compatibility: very good. i only use the drive for data transfer between machines. i've never had any complaints or issues with using the drive on Windows XP, Vista, or OS X. writes and reads are very good.
Durability and Build Quality: this is why i'm giving the drive 2 stars. i put this drive on my keychain and goes into my pocket everyday, and over the past 8 months, the following things have happened:
1. the original metal clasp snapped around week 3. that was ok, since i then put the keychain directly into that rubber hole.
2. the rubber is glued to the plastic unit. . .that started to pull away. somewhere around 5 months.
3. the rubber around the hole is starting to tear. 7 months.
4. lastly,the biggest malfunction is retractable tip no longer locks into place. 8 months.
Support: i have submitted an RMA request with Corsair, and i will update this review with my experience.
Support Update (Feb 25): I received the replacement (a new unit) yesterday after sending the defective unit. I was a little surprised to see how 'solid' a new unit is compared to the one that I sent in. I hope it holds up better than the old one. I've been impressed with their responsiveness over email. I am lucky that they are located in Fremont, so the turnaround time was very quick. I'd give Corsair 5 stars for support.

Feb 23: Notification of shipment of replacement via UPS Ground

CONCERNS: a little on the small side could make it easy to lose, I hope the retractable connector doesn't break or wear out since it is plastic, no LED data light
LIKES: small, rubber encasing seems like it could take some drops, transfer speeds are good for 4gb, who would have though 4gb could be so cheap!!!
Update: I have used this USB key for some time now since the initial review. In all fairness, even the part that attaches to the string is strong enough to hold the USB key and the keychain. I think that I applied a bit too much of traction on it when I bought it initially. A very good device to have overall. Definitely recommended overall.
I had a different mini flash drive and somehow, oneday, all of the data was gone- no computer would even recognize that it was plugged in. This has not been the case with the Corsair, it works everytime that I plug it in. I think the rubberized enclosure makes a huge difference. I will definitely buy Corsair again.
I switched the metal clasp by looping the string through the hole in the rubber, and using the metal clasp to connect it to my keyring. I thought that the rubber hole might tear, but it didn't.
Yeah, I kept it on my keyring every day for those two years. No problems there. Also, it's not so big that it blocks your other USB ports, even with the rubber casing.
Imagine my surprise when I tested it and was still able to read all the files on it. I also loaded this comment on it and could read it back to copy into this field.
I don't know how many wash cycles the drive survived, but it was wedged so hard under the agitator that it must have survived at least one cycle. Maybe I won't trust it with my most important files (not before checking write/read for each one!), but it sure seems indestructible.
The only reason for not giving it five stars is the risk of losing such a small thing. Maybe I should have kept it on my key chain.
