Pros: Small size for easier connexion. Aluminum casing (for heatsink capability). Solid build. Faster than Patriot's spec (read 115-130Mb/s, write 75-85Mb/s), tested on AVI and MKV files (2.5Gb to 4.5Gb). I hope this flash drive will work for a long time.
Cons: The black plastic cap can't be plugged to the other end of the usb key. Can be lost easily. But it's not a big deal.

As another reviewer pointed out (on Amazon.com, I think), and I should have listened to, this stick does not plug-in to most computers: it does not plug-in to my old portable, neither to a more recent portable at the customer's site. Of 5 computers I tried, I only managed to insert the plug into one computer! Since I needed the device, I had to buy another one (USB 2.0 device, so slow).
