Top customer reviews
I actually like the fact that there's no blinking light to indicate activity. I don't need any more technology calling attention to itself when I'm driving. If I were mainly using it with a laptop, then I'd appreciate an LED activity indicator, but having no LED is great for use with a car radio.
When I loaded up 12GB of MP3 files on this drive, my car stereo wouldn't find all of the files on the drive. It turns out that this is a limitation of my stereo...no fault of this drive.
I just ordered several more more V7 drives in 4GB and 8GB capacities.
I do have three relatively minor complaints:
1. The metal enclosure can get HOT when writing files. On a positive note, it seems to be relatively sturdy.
2. There was no indication of the capacity printed on the unit I purchased. Since I have several more on the way, I expect I'll be writing on them with a Sharpie.
3. If the key ring hole was just slightly bigger, it would actually fit on a standard key ring.
Auto MP3 player: My aftermarket unit has a USB port which this unit fits into nicely (disappearing, actually) and it does not stick out so it can't be broken off when my dog decides he wants to look out the front window. Also the unit does not have a light on it, so nighttime driving is not distracting with some flashing light. The different colors are great for different genres of music or audiobooks.
Tech Toolkit: I am the default PC technician at the office, so I sometimes need my PC tools at the ready to troubleshoot or repair a PC. I keep all my software tools on a couple of these drives. Each one was formatted and made bootable, so I just plug them in and boot into the tools I need to troubleshoot and diagnose PC issues. When I am not using these drives, they reside on my keychain, so I ALWAYS have them with me when a problem arises.
Although these are not complaints, I have a couple of notes that buyers should be aware of:
1.) These units do not have a light on them, some may have a problem with that, but it's fine (even desirable) for some uses.
2.) They do fit snugly into a USB slot, so they are a little harder to remove since they are so small and I have big hands. My solution was to add a stainless steel 5mm split ring (like used on a charm bracelet) to the USB drive and add another ring to the first one. This makes them much easier to grasp and pull out. The charm rings also works very well for adding them to any key ring.
Overall, their performance is quite acceptable, the colors make them easy to identify and their small size is very desirable. I would definitely buy them again.
- 8GB Capacity
- Small Size
- Slow read speeds for a USB 2.0
- Fits too snuggly into USB ports
This flash drive has a great capacity for the price and its small stature makes it ideal for use in tablets or a laptop for extra space. The problem is very poor read speeds. I benchmarked this drive at 20MB/s Read / 6MB/s Write. A decent USB 2.0 drive I have is about 38% faster at 34MB/s Read and same write speeds. Also this drive needs some force to insert it into the USB ports. It is so snug that you may need pliers to remove it without the key ring loop.
TIP: Attach the key ring loop to help with removing this device before inserting it into USB Port.
I will keep my order since I will not need to use them often. Just be sure to read some of the top and bottom reviews to get a better idea if this USB is for you.
Why buy it? Because it's ridiculous to give people a few megabytes of data on a 16 GB drive knowing you'll probably never get it back, or risk your fancy 64GB USB 3.0 drive on some pointless errand.
USB drives are like guitar picks and cigarette lighters, they tend to grow wings and disappear. So you'll always need a few disposables on hand, and this fit the bill better than anything else I found on Amazon.
