I was fortunate enough today to receive one of these tiny 4GB flash drives from a friend.
First impression? It's tiny. Makes my traditional 8GB DataTraveler look big and clunky by comparison.
Feels quite solid w/ no flexing which is good. I'm a little concerned about no cover over the metallic strips, but I probably shouldn't be. And I think too small to keep bouncing around loose in a pocket. Maybe keep it on a lanyard?
I'm already putting some PortableApps on it: OpenOffice 3.0, JkDefrag, ClamWin, GIMP, and Sumatra PDF Reader.
Re: Kingston DataTraveler Mini Slim 4GB USB Drive ...
What is the advantage of one so small over the "traditional" size of thumb drive? I can see the reason for tiny flash cards, because they fit inside small devices. But a thumb drive is, by definition, external. And "small enough to lose among the Kleenexes in your pocket" (which is what I consider existing drives to be) is surely small enough?
