Yes it looks cool and is pretty easy to use but after a week the plastic casing starting peeling apart. Luckily it broke during the 2 weeks[..] gives you to return defective items. Just makesure you put it in the right way as it will fit backwards.

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.

I bought this flash drive wanting something small to I could have it with me all the time. I also wanted something large, having out grown my 4GB flash drive. I thought this was the solution - WRONG.
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.

I bought this drive for its stylish look and small size. it really fits everywhere and looks nice.

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.

so:
+ It looks good
+ It fits in every pocket (watch out not to lose it)
- drive is slow on write
- lives short mechanically

you decide.

I've had this on my work badge for about a month now. It's very small and light and fits perfectly on the badge's retractable leash. It shows no signs of wear. It works well, I have faster but it's fine. It's easy to plug in upside-down, but that's worth it for the compact size.

I wanted the extra storage for my son's robotic programing. It has not worked at all. It will not be detected in any of 3 computers or any of the nine (9) USB ports on those 3 machines. I hope it will be replaced with one that works or my money refunded.

I have been using the DT Slim 8GB drive for neaarly a year now, and I have NEVER had a computer not recognize it. I have three personal computers - a desktop that dual boots Windows XP and Ubuntu, a laptop that dual boots Windows XP and Fedora, and a netbook with an Ubuntu Remix OS. The drive is recognized by all the operating systems on all three of my personal computers, and I also use it on my work computer, a Dell running Windows XP as well.

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.
