Cons For a flash drive that claims to be high-speed, it hasn't worked on any of the 5 computers USB 2.0 ports. Ironically, I have a USB Extension 1.1 & USB Hub (also 1.1) and it will only work perfectly in USB 1.1 mode. BTW, it hates the front USB hookup
Pros Fast. Tough as Nails. Great slide feature. Nice Blue Light.
Cons Picky about power!! High Pitch whine.
Summary I am in the military currently serving in Iraq. I am overall happy with the drive. It is able to withstand the harsh environment (although i need to blow the sand out of the slide all too often.) It has very fast transfer rates, when it works it's GREAT. Just recently i was in a humvee that exploded and i was thrown from the rear seat. and myself and thr drive took a REALLY good tumble. didnt think the drive would withstand the blast and the ensuing beating it took. But after wiping it down and blowing out ..... i plugged it and work liked a charm.
That being said. The drive seems to be very picky about where it's plugged into and not all usb ports are equal. when it doesnt power up, i hear a high pitch whine. normally when i plug the drive into a USB hub it works almost always too. When i REPEATLY attempt to insert it and take it out sometimes it will power up. so i have to gamble. but when it works its an AWESOME drive that's tough enough to survive these conditions.
Pros Nice shiny case, did a great job of not letting the memory inside get crushed.
Cons The key died while using it with Quicken. Tech support said I was the 3rd to have that happen -- "You can't use it with Quicken!". Oh, sorry, didn't realize flash drives couldn't be used with FILES...
Pros looks good, fast, neat access to connection
Cons My first one broke so that the exposed connector would not 'lock' open and took 2 hands to insert, my second one is so loose fitting that the connection is rarely established (=not recognized). Don't recommend this usb at all!
Pros cool looking
Cons slider mechanism not durable at all. I owned this for less than a month and the slider failed with very light use. Now the plug falls out of the protective housing and is vulnerable to damage. Additionally, this greatly complcates plugging it in since you
