I often take data between work and home and among friends with back and forth, this is already my 3rd stick from the "Kingston-family". I started with the 2GB memory stick, then came the 4GB flash drive and then halt the 8GB. The datasets will delete yes no less and the always sticks only when I need them I do not usually too cumbersome. Anyway, I would always buy the Kingston flash drives, because they have no cumbersome cap (which you still like to be somewhere or can lose)! The USB port is exposed by turning the silver clip. For transportation just perfect. The speed of the stick is good. At any time purchase recommendation!
