Small-it’s smaller than most of these types of (see review title)
Metal case-doesn’t seem as crushable as plastic ones
Cap-I don’t like the ones where to contact point just slides in, if I put it in my pocket it may get lint in it, if I drop it in the dirt, dirt with get into it, if I drop it in the mud, mud will get into it, if I slip liquid one the table and on and on.
THE CAP FITS ON THE TAIL END FOR STORAGE!! – is there a conspiracy out there to make us lose caps and buy new ones by most makers of these (see review title)? Almost none of them have a place to put the cap when you’re using the device, this one does: thank you HP for standing up to the syndicate!
The is my second one-and I’ve never had any problems with them, work as expected
Was concerned about performance as many have reported slow speeds with similar products, NOT this one. Under OS X I was able to write at 18MB/sec and read at 35MB/sec. Under Linux the write speed was a still impresive 10MB/sec (not sure why it was less) and the read speed was 31MB/sec. The test was a group of large files (50-400MB in size).
I also liked the small size and professional look of the drive. I was able to easily put it into the USB port on the back of the PC between two other USB plugs a feat not easily possible with other (fatter) drives).
Only complaint is the clear colored cap, very easy to loose for obvious reasons.
First, the cap fits on the tail end. Being rather forgetful, I misplace caps. Without a cap the connection can collect foreign matter and decrease the quality of the connection to a computer.
This nice clear cap fits comfortably on the rear end of the drive, which solves my problem.
Second, the case is well constructed. Some of the other flash drives I have seen look very fragile, this HP drive is sturdy.
Third, this drive seems faster than others that I have owned. I transfers files twice as fast as the first flash drive I used, and about twenty percent faster than my HP 100w.
Fourth, a light turns on when it is working, and does not stop until the work is finished. This helps me monitor my work and ensure its completion.
This flash drive is the best I have used. I highly recommend this merchandise.
I wrote a 520 MB folder to it. The folder contained several subfolders as well, and had a total of 1167 objects. Write time for the HP v125W 4 GB was 2 minutes, 30 seconds. Erase time was 35 seconds. For the Memorex (also a 4 GB), write time was 4 minutes 30 seconds and erase time was 52 seconds. Both tests were done using Vista Home Premium on a new-model HP machine with a Vista performance index of 4.6. I also tried a test at work, and can’t remember the exact time, but I’m pretty sure it was even faster under XP
Anyway, its a small, low-cost drive with good speed. Go for it !
