Lots of space on it
pins aren't always in contact with computer resulting in random connects and disconnects
Also feels very very flimsy and cheap
I am a gentle user and carried the key around my neck it didnt take a beating, fyi.
The funny thing is a left a bad review at [...] and it never shows up on the website.
The drive seemed to work ok at first. I had 1 problem with it not being seen on my Vista machine. I removed it and inserted again and it seemed fine. I should have quit there. But instead I have used it for 2 weeks and it has been hit or miss if any machine will see it at all, recognize it as a USB device or read it properly. The real issue however is that I have had times where the OS just stops seeing it. This obvious is bad if it is during a save, which happened to me and I lost my files!!!
The only thing I can figure is that because it does not have the metal housing around it, it is allowed to slip and the contacts are not always made.
The bottom line, I am returning mine and would recommend you stay away from this flash drive.
first thing I noticed with this drive is that it is slow. not the slowest one I have used, but slow.
but biggest problem with this drive is that it is made of cheapo, weak plastic. after just 3 month of normal use and care plastic around connector pins felt apart and now drive is not recognized by computer because of bad contact.
+ It looks good
+ It fits in every pocket (watch out not to lose it)
- drive is slow on write
- lives short mechanically
The casing is as pristine as the day I took it out of the package - of course, a couple of months ago I bought a Case Logic USB case since I carry multiple USBs. But prior to that, the DT Slim lived in a purse pocket and survived just fine. In fact, I'm here at Amazon looking to get an additional DT Slim because the size is so small, I love the ease of use. Only complaint, if you can call it that, is I'd prefer to have some kind of protective casing over the connection points, but keeping it in a soft-sided USB carrying case eliminates that need.
