Thanks for the review! I was at CompUSA yesterday looking at one of these, but I didn't buy it. Now I'll go pick one up :)

Shouldnt be too big of a difference than the 512MB version I used in my review. Depends on how they implemented the NAND flash chips, it could be faster, it could be slower. Generally larger capacity will cause sacrifice the performance, so it might be a LITTLE slower than the Cruzer Mini I used in my review.

Cool....personally I find this bulky for my taste currently I used a Sandisk Cruzer Micro 2GB stick.

Yeah flash drives are faster, but personally its good for relative low cost and higher capacity storage. I still use my Cruzer Mini until I get something better, lol

With the 4GB Flash drives shedding a lot of dollars, this drive will soon be extinct won't it?

I have the 6gig equivalent and I'm very happy with it. I can run stuff like Portable Firefox off it really well and the file speed is fine for me. It's not the fastest USB drive; but it rocks!

I recommend Microsoft's SyncToy with this.
