If all you need is a flash device for storing files, it does that function superbly for an excellent price. However, if you are a PC tech and require the device to have a write-protect switch (for virus protection when using on customer computers), then DO NOT ORDER THIS PRODUCT FROM ANY ONLINE STORE (not even PNY directly). <br><br> PNY offers this product with one part number, but distributes 2 different products under that single part#. One looks like the picture here and has a write-protect switch: <br> http://www.pny.com/support/imgs/attache.gif <br><br> The other looks like the picture here and does NOT have the write-protect switch: <br> http://www.pny.com/support/imgs/attacheM.gif <br><br> Since they are both the same part number (manufactured by different suppliers for PNY), online vendors have no way of ensuring which one you will get. I unfortunately got the one without the needed write-protect switch, so I gave it to my dad and bought this one from Transcend instead: <br> http://www.transcendusa.com/Products/ModList.asp?Lang=EN&FieldNo=2&CatNo=4#JetFlash%202.0 <br><br> If you can buy the PNY product from a physical store, where you can visually confirm it's the type you need before purchase, then it is an excellent product (a coworker of mine was lucky enough to get the one with the write-protect switch). <br><br> Either way, this is not a problem with Buy.com (they delivered it to me in record time, and it was not their fault that PNY ships 2 different products under the same part#). I called PNY and asked them to assign a different part# to the different one, but they did not give a hopeful response.
