The only problems I could find with this flash drive are: a) it does not include a lanyard, b) it's easy to leave fingerprints on the metal part, c) the swiveling metal part does not provide 100% protection to the connecting part (specially from dust). None of these are really a big deal and shouldn't stop you from buying one.
Overall length: when the metal part swivels open to reveal the actual connector it adds about 2 cms in length (goes from 5.5 cms to 7.5 cms), keep that in mind if working in tight spaces, otherwise not really a big deal.
Speed: Here's an example from my experience: from Dell Dimension 4100 running Windows ME to Dell Inspiron 9100 running Windows XP SP2: Two 5MB mp3 files: from the 4100 to the flash drive about 30 seconds (keep in mind the 4100 is running under Windows ME), then from the flash drive to the 9100 (running Windows XP): instantly. Two 700MB video files: from the 4100 to the flash drive about 20 minutes (about the same it takes to burn to DVD on that computer); from the flash drive to the 9100 about 1 minute.Read more ›
If there were a downside, it could be that the LED is tiny and occasionally hidden by some plug orientations. I like the swing-away cover, but I'd actually like to have an indent so that it snaps in the open and closed positions. The size overall is excellent, and though it doesn't come with a lanyard--there is such a proliferation of lanyards in the industry, I have many already that will work--it has a punch-out in the metal cover for one. It has been so versatile and reliable, I'm buying another.
Cons: Like the other reviewer said, the metal swivel protector does not lock into place over the USB connector. Would have given it five if the swivel protector locked.
I bought two of these.
