Backup, carry and keep your important documents with you wherever you are with the impressively small Sandisk Ultra Fit USB 3.0 Memory Stick.

It's small enough to use on any USB port or device without it getting in the way, including the thinnest laptops, curved TVs, and car stereo systems.

From HD films to design project files, backing up large documents takes seconds thanks to USB 3.0. Much faster than previous versions, you won't be left waiting while files transfer after a long day.

Your files stay private too with built-in encryption. If you ever lose or leave the Ultra Fit lying around, you can be confident that no one but you can access your data.

Backup quickly, conveniently and safely with the Sandisk Ultra Fit USB 3.0 Memory Stick.

Is this the old one? Many horror stories of the old one melting while plugged in..
Mine is pretty fast but... the plastic 'cap' had recently snapped off. Not the best made drive in the world.

yeah not had this one but have had the cap come away on a 64gb version
They are almost too small..ok for leaving the car stereo or laptop but quite awkward to pull out regularly.

They're simple to pull out. No more difficult that any other flash drive.

Not really. Just too many people who don't understand how to turn off the USB port when not in use.

How awkward it's going to be is obviously going to be user/hardware specific.
Some people are going to find smaller drives trickier, depending on the factors like the size of surrounding enclosure/port position/their manual dexterity.

A USB drive shouldn't run so hot it eventually comes to pieces or destroys itself unless you disconnect it.
It's a fault widely reported in this model.
I have several of these drives, various sizes. They insert & come out easy. I have one permanently in my Macbook Pro & one permanently in my car & never had a problem.

Same, I've never had an issue but I did lose one on holiday so had to buy again It is very small! But perfect for those who don't want to keep bending their laptop USB ports/pen drives
Mine heats up and disconnects all the time between transfering large files so I have to sit there and ensure it completes before I unplug it. Terrible piece of kit

They are awkward to get a good grip of and pull out straight,mine maybe the older one with the flat cap but they are still very small...I have two here,definitely not as easy as a bigger stick but as I said fine in the likes of a car stereo were it's not being removed everyday.

sounds like you got a dud would get a refund for that i find these drives can run hot but never had a file transfer fail 4gb transfers been fine
PoS. I had this and not only did it overheat to the point of almost burning me when removing it from the laptop(s), it also failed after a few months. I was too lazy (and angry) to return it to Amazon and the Lexar one - which cost less - works perfectly, and cool too. The big blue light on the Lexar is a little annoying, but worth having a working drive.

So you keep saying but the evidence is overwhelmingly that it is nothing to do with turning off power. Not that there should be any need to with such a simple device. And how do you turn off power to a TV, car stereo, streamer or myriad of other devices?

It's a POS & your determination to try to defend it is bizarre in the extreme.
HOT HOT HOT
seriously this thing is waaay too hot
uncomfortably warm when you touch it if plugged into a USB3.0 port. No issues in USB2.0 port but then why are you buying a USB 3.0 device
Better to find another small USB than this one
they also have an unfortunate habit of falling apart when you unplug them!

I agree. I had the same experience. Returned it.

It's everything to do with the USB power settings. Just too many novices not knowing how to change the Windows settings in device manager.

novice
/ˈnɒvɪs/
noun

"an IT novice so stultifyingly ill-informed he interpreted overheating to the point of component disintegration and/or hardware failure as indicative of a USB flash drive working within intended parameters for operation, and as symptoms to be managed by the end user"

synonyms:beginner, learner, inexperienced person, neophyte, newcomer, new member, new recruit, raw recruit, new boy/girl, initiate, tyro, fledgling

Had one before and it ran incredibly hot.
Too hot to hold when removed! Got a samsung equivalent and now no problem at all.

Nothing worse than a small thing that's awkward to pull out regularly... I feel your pain.
Judging by the poor reliability of this item, maybe people should think twice about buying one from a company where people have reported poor customer service and struggled to get refunds for faulty items in the past (such as currys imho).
i have had one of these usbs and know 2 other people who have bought this model too, and all 3 of us have had them overheat and fail after a few weeks.
It does get quite a bit hot when transferring files...and it is hot not just a warm...to give you an idea...its much hotter than an iPhone or Samsung galaxy phone charging up...
