I have one of these on my keys. Kingston, 16gb $9.99.. Robust as hell. The loop is freaking solid, the USB key itself is tiny and no caps to lose:

Yep. I use a couple of kangurus, purely because of the write protect switch. One for office use, and a duplicate for use on the road.

It's amazing out of all the USB drives kicking about, only a small proportion have a physical switch.

It has been established that drives without a physical switch are open to infection.

I live in the UK, and I had to send off to the US to get those kangurus.

I agree with foolish, any software on these sticks is normally binned.

Which is a lot harder than you think as some sticks insist of having a protected partition, which is a pig to delete.

A few times I have failed and just slung the drive in a drawer.

Small USB partitions make me nervous.
