Excellent product – Cool Metal USB 2.0 DX Logo USB Flash Drive (8GB) Reviews

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

Pros:
Excellent metal finish. Had this for barely a week and can't believe how helpful it has been. I kept losing the caps of drives, but with the design, it slides and flips over so it can be easily plugged in. Also with the keychain, it helps as it's with my bunch of keys and so does not get left behind.
Cons:
The .t2w files when tested seems to suggest that the drive might be defective with this error message: The media is likely to be defective. 7.6 GByte OK (15966112 sectors) 48 KByte DATA LOST (96 sectors) However, windows also reports it as having 7.6 GB, so it's fine by me.
Other:
The drive arrived with several .t2w files which had taken up all the space. However a quick google search enabled me to understand that it was used in verifying the size of the disk. These files can be safely deleted.
Bottomline:
Seems hurdy. U might have to search for a program called H2testw if you want to test the drive.
