I've owned many USB Flash drives and honestly I can say that I love this one the most. It has all the features you would want and need.
Pros: Light, Tiny, and SuperThin(thinner than you think), fast data read/write speed (usb 2.0 and usb 1.1 compatible), attractive and sturdy.
In fact, it's hard for me to come up with any negative comments about this item but for any flash drive, it would be nice if the cap were attached to the drive...say with a hinge or something. I have a habit of losing my caps. However, the new micros do come with 2 extra cases and caps, one magenta and one that is teal colored.
Also, it may be noted that the new micros have a different light at the end than the originals. The original (as shown in the amazon pics) have a curved blue light at the end while the new ones have a little green led instead with smaller key-ring nob. I'm not sure if the color of the led varies for different storage sizes for the new micros. But the 256mb one has a green led. Also, the new micros seem even lighter and thinner than the 1st generation micros as well... pretty amazing. Also, don't confuse the sandisk "micro" with the sandisk "mini". The mini is about twice as long in length. Also, if you need lots of storage space, they now make micros with up to 2gb of storage. Wow! Thats a lot of junk in a little trunk.
Conclusion: If you're looking for great quality in an ultra small flash drive, you will love this "micro" drive. In the world of flash drives, it's like a Porshe amist the SUVs.
