Holds a semester of work, but case doesn't protect the usb very well...
on November 11, 2014
This can hold all of my papers and research for a semester of work, which is useful as I depend on using campus computers so I need to always have my information here, in a usb, instead of wasting work and study time panning through my emails to find all the different files I've sent to myself or trying to depend on Google docs.
The end flips around to cover your usb from some damage. It doesn't really stand up to daily use, though, because when stuff shifts around in your bag the end can easily be flipped around to leave the usb vulnerable to being ground up against by calculators and pencils and other random junk in your bag. I had to jury rig a cover for it that won't move, basically by taping on a cover from an old usb that got lost except for the cover. It works, but it kind of ruins the point of the thing coming with a protective cover. And the problem with it not being protected is that if it gets dented it won't insert into the computer and won't work any more and you'll lose the whole semester of work, which is a huge catastrophic life ending event after hours of blood sweat and tears and skipping fun events to do those freaking essays in the first place. So I'm being really cautious about keeping this protected and I don't appreciate that it doesn't do that job effectively enough by itself.
However it loads pretty quickly on the computers and there isn't much lag time so that's useful. And it does hold all the files I need. I just wish that the design of the case was more protective.
