The Micro USB Flash Drive is lightweight and compact. Weighing a tiny 1.2g, and only 2.35mm thick, it is small in size but not in capacity! It is versatile and easy to use. Simply drag and drop your folders and files. The Micro USB Drive also features password protection software and is enhanced for Windows Readyboost

The Micro USB Drive should be inserted into the standard USB port, but due to Chip on Board technology, it should be inserted facing upwards. If inserted incorrectly the drive will not be recognized.

 Tiny and effective.

Just taken delivery of the usb flash drive. It is fantastically small.

The encryption only works when you run the exe that is provided on the flash drive but then it completely hides the encrypted files from view. I am certainly not qualified say that the files were then completely secure, but from the average layman they are safe.

One gripe I have is that the storage is around 8,000,000,000 bytes which is 7.45GB NOT 8GB. It seems stupid that a company that makes storage devices are not aware that there are 1,024 bytes in a kilobyte. Not that 7.45GB is to be sniffed at, but I believe future customers should be aware of this issue.

 Brilliant Storage

I have had one of these for a little while attached to my keys. Being on my keys it gets chucked about and has been dropped and splashed with no side effects. Being at this price it's a steal, and should be more popular - would recommend it

 Excellent Flash Drive

This is an excellent flash drive and do not understand why they are not more popular. It is as thin as the side of a 1 pence, half a pence wide and one and a half pence long. It is also very durable. I have had mine on my keys, 8 solid metal keys and a keyring, and, after 3 months of being carried around in my jeans pocket daily, shows no signs of wear and tear. I though having a pendrive so small would mean an increase chance of losing it. Not true. With it being on my keys all the time, I always know where it is.

I would recommend this to anybody in the market for a pendrive. And when it comes to impressing ladies, size does matter! This pendrive helps me impress them all!

V. fast read and write. Also if anyone is interested I managed to use this drive to create a usb startup disk for Ubuntu 9.10 from inside Ubuntu 9.10 (despite being greater than 2GB) with 95% success rate. I did see an unusual screen when booting from it but it passed it to get to the log in screen. Cannot fault this thing.

 Small and quick

When connected this thing doesnt even stick out as much as the tip of you little finger - it's ridiculously small.

Also, quick when transferring data - I transferred 14 songs @ 111MB in under 10 seconds, so the size clearly doesn't affect it's performance, unlike some things in life. ..

Convenient too, comes with a little keyring to connect throught the hole.

Definitely worth the money, would recommend to anyone.
