Write speed is slow
I've got one, its not the fastest but its great for what it is. Also very sturdy.
As Base32 says, these are not super-speedy, but they're just perfect for keeping on a keyring so you always have one with you when you need it. I have a much faster flash drive as well but find myself using this one much more frequently simply because I have it on me! Absolutely tiny but very robust.
I've got one, a great stick to carry around.

i have one, nice and small and very sturdy - strong aluminium case
Not the fastest but the coolest, handiest and well built - a sexy little number. Good price.
In fact - I went off and bought another one. X)
its not very fast, took ages to delete 10gb of data, but its very "strong" and TINY!
It's small and sleek and perfect on a keyring. Anything smaller is unmanageable or easy to lose.
I really hope they make higher capacity ones at somepoint and perhaps some slightly larger form factor with improved speed. I have three on my keyring and they are fantastic, only downside is capacity (not a great issue @ 16GB) and speed.
I have one of these already, not the fastest but great for keeping on a keyring as I have had plastic ones snap off. Bought another two for other people.
Great drive, stays on my keys and is perfect for getting it out when the moment arises that you need a usb stick quick!

Solid build quality, average speeds.. very good buy imo
These are fantastic, as others are saying, put it on your keyring and forget about it, the build quality is superb, no chance of it getting damaged.

Personally I couldn't care too much about the speed, I don't use it often just good to know it's always there if i need it.
Sure they're slow, but they look so cool and I've had one on my keys for months and still looks new. Really well made!

I have a pointed stick. Much better for attacking people than a banana.

(showing my age now! old Monty Python sketch)
Best flash drive i have had and i have went through a few, it is the perfect design, tough and small and won't fall off your keyring, not very fast, but if you are just needing it to store data, then it is fine. and at this price it is a bargain!!
Been wanting one of these for a while due to the design (have lost sticks on my keys in the past). Good price, heat added
If anyone is interested, there are 8gb versions available for £4.54 delivered from technextday.co.uk

I only needed 8gb for running xbmc openelec direct from a USB drive mainly for streaming video and music (which works great, by the way), so 16gb was overkill for my needs.

I ordered two from them a couple of weeks ago and they were delivered six days later using their free delivery option. I was a bit sceptical about technextday as I'd never heard of them before, so I paid via PayPal just in case. I'm relieved to report that they seem to be legit. And the Kingston USB drive really is a nice bit of kit.
i wish it had a bottle opener.
Just ordered one.... Do you know. Forget speed, everyone is banging on about how slow it is... Look at it, it's mint. It's dead compact and really sturdy, that's what you want for your keys. That's what it's for, keys. If you want a Turbo superdrive, go get one, I want one of these... For my keys, I've spent about £40 on USB sticks that don't get on with keys..... Heat OP, nice one

Ordered two. Been looking for a sturdy drive (i.e. not plastic) that won't snap off my keyring.

Anyone have any ideas on reliability of these? I don't care about speeds, just hoping that these things last!

Absolutely, longlastibility.......
I take it that's the technical term? ;-)
Why didn't you just go for the 64gb for £20 off ebay that was on here a few days ago? Branded doesn't mean it's better

Because you will lose the lid, it's too small, it looks crap....
Thanks OP, just ordered 3 for the parents and in-laws!
Thanks, looks ideal for what I wanted

Why would losing the lid matter, you wouldn't be any worse off that if you had the OP one? I don't see how it can be too small, especially if you are putting it on a key ring? Looks fine to me.
Received mine by 2nd class Royal Mail today.
Just got mine today as a backup to keep with my keys, didn't expect it to be so tiny.
