Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of room I love these. They are so easy to use and I've placed all my back-up flash drives onto one. They barely made a dent in its capacity. I have a red one for home and a black one for work.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does alright I bought this five days ago and it has broken. I’m not sure why but I’m assuming its a one off. The speeds are quite inconsistent. I recommend this as long as you aren’t processing large files!
