You have to modify it

 

Do get it cause its a good deal for a gig and if you use apps like portable Firefox and other portable apps from portablefreeware.com

Its small, works as of now

I took apart my OCZ roadster the first day I had it. I remove the plastic cover and pop off the rubber hinge covers on the side. You can slide a keychain around the hole in the usb part. I've lose a thumbdrive before due to weak plastic construction....

Good idea / Bad Design

 

Should have made the keychain loop metal since it breaks off easy. I guess it's still a decent price for a 1 GB flash drive, even though I can't use it as a keychain anymore.

Great Idea, small, lightweight, fits on your keychain

As another review pointed out, the black paint on the unit wears off very quickly while in your pocket. Another issue, it that everything is plastic besides the USB connector itself. After about a week, the keychain "loop" broke off in my pocket, since...

OCZ Roadster 1GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model OCZUSBRSTR-1GB

 

Very small and no cap to lose

This may turn out to be an unfounded worry but there's very little metal in the construction to act as a heatsink. This results in what little metal there is becoming very hot in use and I wonder what this will mean to long-term reliability

How much small can they go

 

When I first received it I found it little hard to plug in and pull out but as I use it I think its getting easier.

Well made, Nice transfer speeds I have been very impressed. Looking at the picture I wondered if I would like carrying it in my pocket, I thought it would be bulky, I was very surprised *actually blown away* at the small size. I figured I would never...

None so far

Small, quick, Sleet

 

Tiny. Quick Transfer Speeds. Cheap

The clip on the leather strap broke about 30 seconds out of the box (I didn't buy it to wear as a bracelet so I didn't rate this against it)

Careful - might buy two!

 

Check other reviews online, this device comes highly rated, and for the price you can't go wrong. Trust me on this!

Its super-small and PERFECT for key-chains. I kept losing the caps to my other bulky flash drives and this one is my saving grace! It works fast for what I use it for, and the size is amazingly small. I am very impressed

My girlfriend was impressed by it so much that she is demanding one for Christmas! ... so be careful who you show it to, you might have to buy another one! ... other than that, its AWESOME

Surprisingly Small

 

All of my geeky co-workers love it and are now going to buy one.

Very* small, much smaller than I expected ; No cap means nothing to lose ; Durable and dependable so far

The drive came with a usb extension cord, which is nice, but it doesn't seem to work really well. This certainly wasn't a deal-breaker for me

Consumer review by:

Nice

 

If only it came in a 2 or a 4 gig model.

The size is perfect, attaches to any keychain and it has a protective cover. I've used this on several devices with usb 1 and 2.0 and works like a charm. So far seems to work on every os platform as well

The little sizes that works as a axis is a bit big so plugging it besides another usb device is a bit hard

Consumer review by:

It's so small

 

Love the hotswap support.

This drive is amazingly small and i carry it around on my keychain. The transfer speed is zippy for its size. took about 20-30 seconds to transfer 250MB. Also no cap to lose

The drive gets pretty hot after being connected only for a short while

Consumer review by:

Great product

 

I threw the goofy leash away, and was able to (with force and finesse) open the small ring on the chain, hook it to the plastic loop, and close it again. Then I attached to big end that easily opens to my key ring.

Small, stylish, feels durable. Perfect size for a keychain. I don't need a USB drive very often, but when I do I'll always have it handy

I wish it was easier to open. I have to use my fingernail in order to flip it, which can be uncomfortable
