I think that this little data traveler is awesome and very convenient. It works the same as any other flash drive, just plug it in and a little hard drive pops up in the my computer window. It holds up to 1gig which is more than enough for your everyday use and then some if you want to transfer music files or even movie files. I also like it because it comes with an attached metal ring which can then be attached to key chains or what have you. I just hooked it onto my keychain and now i have a cheap little flashdrive that I can take with me anywhere in the event that I need to grab something off of a friend's computer or store something from lab. It also works with Windows Vista and comes with a 5 year warranty so I'm not too worried about abusing it a little bit.
