Ease of Use

Drive works with no problems thus far + on time shipping......cap definitely was not designed with actual functionality in mind; the small rivets that normally hold a cap in place are too small allowing unwanted movement. I keep in a separate holder so not affected by this feature dramatically......Tested drive with other computers including windows xp, vista, and my 7 with no issues on compatibility...Music Album at 80.3 mb took 9 seconds...Folder containing 1.25 gb of random apps took 3 1/2 minutes...4.57 gb ISO file took 5 min System Specs K8M800 AMD Sempron 2800+ 2 X 1 gb DDR @ 200 mhz NVIDIA GeForce FX 5700LE 256 mb Maxtor 160 GB w/8 mb buffer

I got this when it was 9.99 w/free shipping, worth the price, so I got 2! Item is well built & cap is easy to click on or off if you tied 2 of them together from the end.

I wanted a capless USB drive, this one was disappo

by Dennis on 10/31/2010

so I got this one. I figured it was a good brand, it was capless (which was the number one feature on my list)and it was on sale. So no brainer.Well it is capless but the way it which it retracts into itself is weak,so if it is in my pocket it just slides back out waaaaay too easily so 90% of the time when I take it out of my pocket the USB connector is exposed which defeats the whole purpose of getting a capless design.

You get what you pay for

by Rick on 11/1/2010

Works fine as flash memory. Has cheap plastic feeling. Opening & closing mechanism is very bad. Design flaw. Any pressure on the side of the flash drive (opposite usb connector) will push out the usb connector because there is no locking mechanism. So in your pocket, purse or bag the usb connector will probably get pushed out and exposed. Benefits of not having a cap is nullified.
