    I just picked up one of the 16GB SanDisk Cruzer Fits... I'm not really sure what I'll use it for but I've wanted one since I watched the
    Adam Savage EDC video. :D

    THAT. IS. AWESOME.

    Looks like they're going for about $12 for 8GB to around $45 for the 64GB on ebay. Kinda spendy compared to similar capacity, but honestly I would have expected it to cost mroe for the awesome housing

    Just found these earlier today, and it's already on my list for my next Amazon order. I've got plenty of spare microSD cards laying around with no practical use.

    I'm thinking attached to a retractor secured to the outside of my bag would be pretty handy.

    I actually have one of those that I use for music in my car. The low profile makes it great for head units with a front USB port.

    I have a 16 and a 64 gb USB 3 card from Kingston or sandisk or somebody. They don't look particularly cool, but they're fast.

    that's kind of all I care about. the 64 GB has a few partitions that I know work with different oses that my computers can read and write, and the 16 GB is waiting to be turned into a Linux live disk whenever I get around to it

    That is way cool man! If someone who whittles were to do carved designs/figurines with a USB in it, that could be a nice little niche in our community!

    I bought a SanDisk Ultra Dual a few weeks ago. It's got two USB-Plugs, standard and micro, so you can use it with into a phone or tablet that has a MicroUSB Port and USB host capability (most modern Android devices).

    I just picked one of these up and it was a bit of a disappointment, May send it back to Amazon. The metal shell was mis-shapen so it sticks in USB ports and when you tug it out the plastic guts rip out, it won't stay together unless you use a pair of needle nose pliers to pull it out by the tiny metal lanyard tab. Always been a SanDisk fan, their CF cards were rock solid compared with competitors, but I'm not a fan of this unit.

    Cheers, Ted

    I just picked up the SanDisk Connect 32GB Wireless Flash Drive and I LOVE it! I can share files without having to plug and unplug the thumbdrive! It's perfect for those files and documents that I want to sync between devices. I have a "Wish List" that I am constantly updating. This allows me to open the wish list from any computer in the house. I know I can do that over my home network, but I can use this on the road as well...

    Grabbed a "cool beans" knockoff from eBay, listing said it was legit but I have my doubts, in any case I like it. 8gb and very small. But as usual you get what u pay for, plastic piece that you would string a lead around (didn't come with one) snapped off on like day two, also the cap was very loose. I drilled a hole in the back and fed a knotted lead through to attack it to my keys, epoxy to seal the hole,I used a small piece of rubber from a pen grip to secure the cap onto the drive so I wouldn't worry about it falling off , not bad for six bucks
