Best USB Flash Drive!
5 Star Review   By disco4178 on Adorama - Jul 30, 2009   

I absolutely LOVE how the USB head retracts into the body -no need for a cap! When you pull it out of the port, it just snaps back inside the body. I bought two (redundancy) for school and keep them in a neoprene case, so scratches aren't an issue for me. They also blink when data is transferring, so that's another plus. The different color LED covers for different capacities are great too. If you don't want to use the compression software, you don't have to, but it is there. They might be a little pricier than others, but they're the best for sure...

Sony 8GB USB Flash
3 Star Review   By member softganesh - Sep 28, 2008   

Strengths: Built-in compression software, the Look

Weakness: No strap supplied, Feels loose construction, Cost

From the outside pack it looks great. Once I opened the pack, the first bad impression is the construction. If you shake little bit, you can hear loose joint noise. Also the picture shows how to link with strap, but I was surprised that no strap was provided. The pen type operation is a good idea. The light glows when connected and is very bright. The compression software comes with the drive. Overall it is not that great for the price. I would suggest to wait to come down in price.

4 Star Review   By member redneck24 - Sep 20, 2008   

Strengths: portable, no lost caps,

Weakness: not water resistant

They work really great. The click design means no more lost caps to worry with. It is also very compact and very portable so you can take it with you almost any where.

SONy 8GB Micro Vault Click
4 Star Review   By member borysr - Sep 6, 2008   

Strengths: Capacity,, compression software, price

Weakness: Feels pretty cheap, compression utility does not support encryption.

This flash drive built of cheap (but durable) plastic. Virtual expander software utility is nice addition to automate compression/decompression of the files moving between USB drive and PC, but software has no options/preferences - like password encryption etc. As everything branded SONY in current world - their low end electronics built OK but not the greatest as it was 10 years ago. So in general, average USB drive doing it's job.
