HIGHLY RECOMMEND for devices such as Blu-Ray players and Laptops!

Strengths of the product

Very sturdy will not break if you leave it in your pocket and sit on it - or even if you fall asleep with it in your pocket. PERFECT for Laptops and Blu-Ray players! A good suggestion to carry it around on a key chain or wear it around your neck on a neck chain (neckless).

Weaknesses of the product

The first one I purchased ended up failing - I could have returned it but did not as I did not want the data on it possibly recovered & viewed. 2nd one I purchased works flawlessly for over a year now. I think they worked the bugs out by now since the failed device reviews are from 2015 & 2016 (about when I purchased my failed one as well). Went to purchase another one today but they were sold out picked up a Kingston Data Traveler 50 32GB instead and find it's sticks out too much.

Additional Comments

HIGHLY RECOMMEND for devices such as Blu-Ray players and Laptops! I have a Blu-Ray player & Laptop which all other brands of USB drives stick out of the devices like a diving board - NOT GOOD because if it happens to get knocked - it could possibly break the devices USB port & or loose/corrupt data on the USB drive. HOWEVER this Spark drive fits perfectly snug and flush with these devices - in fact it fits so well that there is NO risk to knock the drive out of the USB socket!

Additional Comments

It stopped working the same day I purchased it, part the way through transferring data to it the first use. Windows can no longer recognize the device, shows it connected but can't use it. I looked online and found other user's posting the same complaint. One Amazon purchaser had 2 bad ones in a row that stopped being recognized by Windows. I suggest you not waste your time with this one.

Good performance for the price and small too.
