Extremely compact design.
Very spacious for price.
Integrates USB plug into drive plastic.
Easy to lose given its small size.
This flash drive is perfect for a user looking for something inconspicuous yes still capable of storing many files. The keyring hole is more than large enough to fit any key ring, and the integrated USB plug design is likely to be more durable than other reviews give it credit for.

While a metal plug is certainly more durable in itself, you have to consider that the metal is soldered onto the end of a thin PCB inside the drive, and the outer-plastic design is likely to make for a much more durable connection. If something were to knock into my drive while it was in the computer, I would much rather have the outer casing take the pressure than the thin internal soldered connection.

cheap price went on sale
very small
lots of storage
cheap plastic instead of a proper USB connector
feels like it will break
very slow write speeds 4.13mb/s
This thumb drive uses a plastic connector instead of a proper USB Connection the plastic is extremely thin and was hard to pull out
of my laptop's USB connectors but seemed to be fine on my desktop computer

when I'd start the transfer test the drive would start at 14.1 MB/s write speed and then drop  down to 4.13 MB/s by the end of the transfer test
the thumb drive was pretty warm perhaps the drive I have is defective or the drive throttled the right speed to prevent damage to the drive
because the drive seemed to slow down as it heated up none of my other USB thumb drives get as warm as this one but this one is also pretty small.

Warning: Only 14753 of 14875 MByte tested.
Test finished without errors.
You can now delete  the test files *.h2w or verify them again.
Writing speed: 4.13 MByte/s
Reading speed: 15.1 MByte/s
H2testw v1.4

I was pretty disappointed with the write speed of this thumb drive as it can take a very long time to copy files

The only thing this has going for it is the low price while on sale as it's cheap enough to give a coworker or friend and not worry too much about getting it back from them

I definitely would not trust this thumb drive with any of your important data.

Experience: 10 Days


loads of space
Bought this on sale for 8$ . had to buy it in order to get shipping promo for my PC case. REally pleased with it

Experience: 1 Days


Small physical size
too much plastic
Bought this on sale and is good price for 16GB, the physical size is small but there is a hole for key ring but too much plastic may damage it if you hook it with your keys.

Experience: 8 Days


Good name
The plastic frame that encloses the 4 terminals is very thin and may break easily if you do not pull it straight out of the port.You have to make sure that if it is stiff,you have to be careful not to shimmer it left and right.
Good but i am not sure if it will break if i had to use force when i need to remove it

+ Small, compact and very portable
+ Fits on a key ring
+ High capacity storage for a low price
+ Acceptable speeds, average ~6mb/s write and ~16mb/s read for files between 1-2GB in size
+ 14.5/16GB available for use
+ No LED/light indicator, great for viewing at night
- All plastic and fragile
- USB insert  is exposed without a cap
- Quite concerned over the durability of the stick
Overall a good (and cheap) USB drive to have. urDrive comes with an optional uninstaller which is quite convenient. The speeds are decent. For just $8, it is a great deal.

My only real concern is over the build quality. Despite it being very small and compact, it is all plastic and the socket insert  is exposed. If you're putting this on a key chain or are planning to lug it around, make sure that you clean it every so often.

Experience: 5 Days


Works well
Good price when on sale
The thumb drive works the way it should don't really have much to say. The only thing is, its small and would be easy to lose.

Experience: 3 Weeks


Small. Can only fit in the USB socket 1 way. Fast enough for most needs
Plastic, possibly not so durable. No drive activity LED.
This USB stick is really small yet still pretty durable. However, it's made entirely of plastic, so if you're attaching it to your keyring it might get damaged more easily than some other small drives.

Despite being so small, it still manages to have a protected connector end, which means the stick can only go into the USB socket one way. There's no guessing if you've got it in backwards or not as with some other drives.

The price per GB ratio is getting so small on these drives that you can almost trade them with others the way you would have with floppy disks from 15 years ago.

Speed wise this stick will handle most tasks fine. It's not the fastest drive out there by any means, but it's far from the slowest. It's a nice middle of the road drive - again perfect for trading with others.

Only thing I'd like to see is some sort of LED indicating drive activity. But on something of this size and price it's understandable why such a feature isn't present.

Experience: 2 Days


Small, compact.
No cap, connector end is plastic.
Cheap for a 16gb since I picked it up on sale. Very small, less than half the size of my old Kingston DataTraveler. Not sure I like the connector end being plastic. With no cap too, I'm afraid it'll get damaged since I carry actual keys around with the usb key.

Experience: 14 Days


Fits on Keychain
Doesn't feel as durable as the 108
I got 2 of these to replace the massive 32GB Corsair USB I had on my keychain. So far I am very please with their performance thus far. One thing I do like about these over the DT108 is that they only fit 1 way into the USB port.

Great little drive, would purchase again.
