Real life speed tests are twice as fast as usb 2.0 drives, if not faster.
No lanyard for connecting to keyring, but hey, for $24 what do you expect? Retractable would be nice, but again, $24.

The difference between USB 2.0 and 3.0 is night and day. If you have any options on going for any item that can take USB3.0, spend the little extra.
The price is starting a little high, but, as more things start rolling out that are USB3.0 compatible, prices should go down. Keep your eye out for anything 3.0 and start the deal search. It will be the next standard.
If you are starting to build a new computer, make sure that you have USB 2.0 AND 3.0 ports built in. I had to get an additional card to add 3.0 ports, but it is well worth it!!!

It's blue. It's slim and doesn't block another USB port. The loop at the end of the flash drive has enough room for me to use a metal clip to attach to my key ring. The cap stays on and doesn't slide out very easily on its own. It's fast on USB 3.0.
You can lose the cap if you're not careful, but I usually put it in my pocket when I have it plugged in. It's really 14.6 GB of free space.
I had this one close to four months now, and it still works great! I would recommend this to anyone. I have used it a lot on my laptop and desktop to transfer files and backup lecture notes.
