Cheap and handy, though not a terribly big size these days. Great price though. Voted HOT.

The other sizes aren't a deal which is why I chose this one.
Twice the price of other 32GB drives but good if you need the form factor. I believe they fixed the thermal throttling and heat issues for these too.
Cheapest price according to 3 camels. But I'm holding off for the 64gb to dip sub £10.

They are tiny when attached to a laptop. I have an older version and I it would appear that I have mislaid it!! Hence I'm looking to replace it.

Yes that’s what I mean, the form factor. But they’re not so small that I’d ever want to leave one in unless it was a laptop that was always kept on a desk and they do get hot just left plugged in. If you caught the end of this on something, the leverage would almost definitely break your USB port.

There are - but only on write. I use a 128GB and a 256GB for music files in our cars and when you're writing files to them they would burn you they get that hot, but when used for reading files off they are fine. They dont heat up.

I've had one out the side of my laptop for several years and never had an issue. Even if it does get "caught" on something it would take massive force for it to break the USB port of the laptop.

You would be surprised and it depends a lot on the laptop construction. Anyway, if you’re fine with it that’s ok, I just had this as a consideration so I never left mine plugged in 24/7 as I am generally mobile so it’s moved around a lot and I don’t want or need a port in constant use.

Likewise i'm mobile, use a laptop all the time and using the laptop on site, airports, lounges, various odd places and never had an issue with these small dongles. TBF the one i have in my work laptop (and this one currently) is for a bluetooth trackball mouse, but same principal and never had any issues. I tend to use Lenovos though so maybe laptops with cheaper chassis it could be an issue.

My normal machine is a Surface Pro and only has one USB port. I don’t use cheap laptops. I was really referring to how the USB port is internally attached to the machine - if it’s floating with wires running, attached direct to the mainboard, if the surrounding metal chassis acts as strain relief and, of course, how you carry it (carry case), etc.

Sorry to hear that.

If it has happened to you with a Surface pro then it must have been inflicted with a serious force to do so. I would suggest freak accident rather than a common or likely occurrence.

I have never broken one myself. I said that’s why I wouldn’t leave it in all the time. That and reports of them just failing over time from being constantly on - maybe that’s the older ones.

I genuinely think if it has ever happened to anyone then its been a massive force required to do so which would either be down to incredibly bad luck or negligence, rather than maybe what they've told you / their tech support team "oh it got little more than a touch...."

For me the whole point of these little drives / dongles is you can leave them in permanently. That is what they're designed for.

I see little point in having to remove them and thus risk losing something so small.

I wouldnt have any faith in any USB drive as a backup device, thus any data i want to keep is always backed up in the cloud.

The two big ones i have have been fine, other than the heat issue when writing to them.

I had a lenovo where the USB tab (was red on this model) pulled out with a mouse that had been used for years and is still being used now. A little Googling will highlight years of problems with Lenovo USB tabs breaking, something to do with brittle plastics they used.
In case it hasn't been said these are great but get very hot in sustained use to the point they slow down. Not too bad on a 32 but a PITA on a 128.
Voted hot. I've given up on buying usb drives or SD cards any bigger than 32gb. They just take too long to fill up with files. I'd rather have multiple smaller capacity ones.

You aren't buying the right ones then. Look at the write speeds on the next one you buy and do a comparison.

I am buying cards and drives with a fast write speed. But transferring 128gb of music files just takes too long. The 128gb Sandisk usb drive I have at the moment isn't at fast as this one, but it's not that much slower.

Good, I have the old one, burnt my fingers removing it after being used in my laptop backing up files.
Overheating can be a problem if you are continuously writing to these drives: for instance for portable applications

I had a user last week left in a tiny usb stick.. dropped the laptop (from a car seat to the carpark tarmac) and smashed the usb port.

So leaving them in permanently if also transporting a laptop around (and why wouldn't you be transporting a laptop around?) can be risky.

As i said a severe force will damage any laptop.

Demonstrates the benefits of laptop bags. I never move mine about without at least a sleeve on it.

The company i'm doing work for currently supplies a laptop bag with any laptops and IT policy is to ensure its transported outside of the office in a / the bag.

Personally I wouldn't trust the cloud either, use personal drives because if the company gets hacked or decides to cease cloud function, you still have everything you need.

My files are not that sensitive. They're backed up to my local PCs too, but stored centrally on the cloud.

I definitely wouldnt be putting my faith in a single USB drive.

They likes of Google with G Suite and Microsoft with One Drive are not just going to pull out of the market. Cloud storage is big business for them.

I use a mixture of Cloud (Google and OneDrive) and local storage (mirrored NAS and external HDD). If I could I'd also do off site backups!!
Note: You definitely can't risk putting this on your keyring, the ring piece is a thin cheap plastic so it will just snap off..
