Description:Memorex offers one of the fastest and smallest portable Flash devices with its USB 2.0 TravelDrive. Perfect for storing and transferring data, digital photos, video and MP3 files between home, office or school computers, the new Memorex Tra.Reviewed by: almoon from TX on Mar 8, 2005

Experience: 2 Days

Strengths: Fast (USB 2.0), reliable, plenty of storage (1GB), incredible price

Weaknesses: None

Summary: Throw out the floppies, this is a must have for anyone using a computer with a USB port. Memorex makes a quality product, you cannot go wrong. The more memory the better. The 256MB version sells at major electronic stores for $50. This 1GB version is 4X the memory for the same price (online vendor had a $20 mail-in rebate).

Experience: 8 Months

Strengths: reliable, fast and a built in write protect switch

Weaknesses: the wide body form factor occasionally makes for difficult insertion in some crowded usb spaces

Summary: I actually owned the 256MB Memorex drive first and for 8 months now, it still works great I just outgrew it. I expect the same reliablity form the 1GB drive which I've had for a few days.

I transfer files around to multiple machines on a regular basis between Windows and UNIX operating systems. Both the 256MB and 1GB drives have worked flawlessly in all environments. The write protect switch gives me an added sense of security when I have to plug the drive into other systems or let people borrow the drive to retrieve files.

Although the chain attaches to the cover and not the drive itself, I have carried my 256MB drive on my car key ring for 8 months now and it has never accidentally detached itself. I also like the ability to loan out only the drive and keep the rest of the stuff attached to the cap. The cap still snaps securely in place and I am not at all concerned about losing the drive. The silver finish on my 256MB drive is scratched and beat up but the drive itself still works great.

My experience with the 256MB Memorex drive convinced me to buy the 1GB model. When the 2GB model becomes more affordable I'm sure I'll upgrade again.

Strengths: large storgage capacity; low price

Weaknesses: none

Summary: The 1GB USB drive has a sizeable storage capacity, which makes it very versatile to transport large and small files. This device is very small, light-weight, and portable. Its shape is just like that shown on the package. It has a circular bulge in the middle of the stick, which makes it less slender than some of the other models. But that has no effect on functionality.

Strengths: Compact size; Capacity for the price; the unique shape; the rubber grip on the handle

Weaknesses: none

Summary: I recently purchased the Memorex High Speed Travel Drive, 1GB and am very pleased with the purchase. The price is less than other brands of equal capacity and it works equally well. The unique shape is a bonus, making it stand out from a pack of gum or an eraser. I also like the grip. This is well worth the purchase.

Strengths: Don't need drivers to use it in WinXP or Win2K. Didn't try on WinME but packaging said it works on ME. You can download a driver for Win98SE. 1GB or space! Biger than a CD! USB 2 & 1.1. Light weight.

Weaknesses: None. Just don't loose it as is is small and light weight.

Summary: It works exacly as claimed. I like how it looks and is very light weight. You can atach it to a keychain or wear it with the included band. The protective cap that covers the USB port detaches easaly. The cap is the part that ataches to the band or your keychain wring. This alows easy removal from your keychain to use your flash drive. I cary pictures, some work files, and my Resume ready on my drive. I also have some music files and some "shareware" instalation software on it that I can share with friends.

Strengths: Easy to use, fast, clear driver download instructions

Weaknesses: It would have been nice to have Windows 98SE drivers packed with the unit.

Summary: I am very satisfied with the performance of this TravelDrive. It provides tremendous storage space in a small, convenient package.
Even though the included instructions were explicit, and made it very straight forward to download Windows 98 drivers, it would have been convenient to have the driver included in the product package.

Strengths: Lite and comes with the "necklace" Support USB 2.0

Weaknesses: I don't see any weeknesses so far

Summary: I think this it the best USB Drive in the market. It is called a USB Thumb drive, and it is so true, it's just about the same size of my thumb. The design is very unique. There is a Lock/Unlock Key on the top side of the drive. Here is the Dimensions: 2.7" x 1.22" x 0.39" and the weight is only 0.46oz. (lighter than your thumb!!!)

1GB of size is good enough for me to store. It is more than a regular CD-R size (750MB). And best of all, I got this drive in Office Depot only 49.99 after rebate!

Strengths: It's very light weight, has incredible space and is very chic. I could also wear it around the neck as a necklace.

Weaknesses: NA

Summary: (Edited November 15th by czwmlx) The drive was overall very satisfying. It was everything advertised for. I feel like I made a wise purchase in buying this product. Highly recommended for anyone needing extra file space.

Strengths: small, fast, cheap,

Weaknesses: make sure you have a usb port in the back (of desktop) or side (of laptop) as the unique shape makes it hard to get it into the usb on the front of my dell.

Summary: This is a great product. it is my first flash drive and you can not beat the price from it arrived the day after I ordered it, (ground free shipping). you just plug it into xp and go. downloaded 300 mb in about 3 5 minutes. maybe that is not fast, I don't know much about this, but it is fast enough for the $50 (net) I paid.

Strengths: It is very big drive in very convinient size both in terms if storage and physical size. It is sleek and fits anywhere. The transfer seems to be faster than in my previous jump drive (USB 2.0).

Weaknesses: None

Summary: I was afraid the shape of the drive will cause some problems when plugged in vertical position in my laptop but it is sleek enough to fit into my computer without much problem. It is great buy.

Strengths: very easy to use - plug and play. downloadable drivers from website for other windows platforms. Specs indicate for use on Win98Se and above. I was able to install drivers from website and use on Win9

Weaknesses: protection chain should be attachable to usb drive itself, rather than cover. I'm afraid to lose the drive, but not so heartbroken to lose the cover.

Summary: The manufacturer Specs indicate for use on Win98Se and above. I was able to install drivers from website and use on Win98 also. The drive functions just as well on a Windows98 platform as it does on the Windows XP. I suffer no data loss when switching files between the two windows versions, for this I am pleased.
