Pros Very quick responsiveness, quick read/write ability, password protectable.
Cons retractor can get a little gritty after many uses, a little spendy for 1.0 gig
Summary Very good flash drive, retractor can get a bit gritty after awhile, very durable, and you can take programs and passwords with you and keep info safe with the ability to password protect. Overall very good.
Pros Smart design, capacity, retractable connector (no loose cap)
Cons Innards do not last
Summary When you get something that a truck can drive over without damaging it, you would expect standard use won't, either. Don't; mine is finished after just over two years. It died in the middle of a folder transfer, with all data on it lost, of course. Never chance it as a single backup. All in all, there is little point forking out $$ for this "durable" miracle when you can spend just $ for any plastic s**t, run it for a year, throw away & get another one to be on the safe side. If only titanium were used for cavity fillings - I might squeeze at least something out of that brilliant looking shell!
