Pros All my data is password protected from the second the drive is plugged in. Plus it holds 8 freakin Gigabytes!!
Cons Bigger than my previous lexar drive, and the sliding in and out was a little weird at first.
Summary I got a gift card to BestBuy for my birthday, and since I was heading off to college, I needed something that could hold more than the 512MB Lexar I had been using, and this was perfect.
So far, my favorite thing by far, is that the drive is security encrypted. It's so simple too, because all you have to do is set up your drive to have a password, and the only time you're prompted after that is when you plug it in.
I'm a very forgetful person, so I tend to leave my drive at the computer I was using (even though my keys are attached). So, the added security helps keep me from freaking out, because library computers make you log out. And you're prompted for the password each time the drive is recognized, so even though it's been in the same computer, it still is password protected.
Besides the security, the drive has allocated folders for music videos and pics. This way you can use part of your ipod without wasting battery life.
The only drawbacks I can mention so far is that it is slightly longer than some more stylish flash drives, so it may be clunky on your key chain. But that is definitely worth it when you consider the fact that it holds 8GB. I've been using it for about 2 months now and still have 6GB remaining.
Summary Excellent product.
Both space in a short space.
Very fast medium 25.8 Mb/s (test done with HD Tune 2.54) therefore it's Vista ReadyBoost compatible.
U3 software works well, there are some programs installed including a trial of McAfee, Skype, etc, but, wishing you can add other programs.
Pros Size, look, easy to carry, retractable - no cap
Cons transfer rate could be improved
Summary I got this 8Gb drive today. The highest data transfer speed that I could achieve with a USB 2.0 port is 9.5 MB/Sec. Not sure this is normal.
Pros Holds a lot and it is fast.
Cons None yet found.
Pros Fast and cheap
Cons Any time I take it to the photo shop they complain it's trying to install software on their computer; but most importantly: it's failed three times and I've lost all my data
Summary Sadly unreliable. I have a 2GB Titanium that is still going strong after three years, but this one is about half that old and has failed several times. Luckily I haven't lost anything that wasn't copied on a computer somewhere--and you do have to wonder why I'm dumb enough to have it die on me THREE TIMES before I stopped using it--but it's unreliability makes it a curse. Maybe I just got a lemon?
