Sheesh I remember not that long ago paying over a $100 for 1gig.

Its nice to see bigger sizes on such a small unit no more carrying around an external Harddrive for 10 gigs. :)

Thanks for the kind words. I feel you guys. Let me tell you I was carring 6 flash drives in my pocket up until I did the review. Now everything has been transfered to this drive and I feel a lot lighter. ;)

The drive is great and it is nice to not have a cap on it to loose......

Nice review!

I use a 16 GB flash card in my EeePC and I am thoroughly impressed at the read/write speeds (especially given the low cost).


It's going to be interesting when flash chips of this size and speed make their way into affordable SSDs. RAID 0 will finally have a use!

I can't wait till SSD's become mainstream so I can put one in my laptop.
