    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    - very fast speeds (+75MB/s read speed)

    - slim form factor

    - includes protector cap

    - has a loop to hang it on a keychain

    - not too bright red indicator LED

    - decent quality

    - carbon fiber looks good (from a distance)

    Cons:

    - everything is plastic

    - protector cap feels very cheap

    - plastic loop will probably break in due time

    Bottomline:

    This is a good 16GB USB 3.0 stick which delivers what it promises. Tested on a Sony F22 laptop with USB 3.0, transfering one large file and it capped at about 75MB/s read speed, probably because the hard drive in the laptop could not keep up. With many 4MB files it caps at about 40MB/s read speed. The write speeds are around 20MB/s which is fair for this price range.
