One reason I like it is it's size makes it easy to insert and remove, some seem very small and awkward to grip, especially with my chunky fingers. Clearly that's a requirement of any flash drive I buy. I'd prefer one with a retained cap (the Survivor cap is sufficiently large not to worry about losing it) but it's not essential.
Browsing the web seems to suggest that virtually all such have reliability problems or suddenly die. Maybe this is just the posts being more biased towards problems than praise.
Any thoughts, experiences?
