    Pros & Cons


    • Great way to keep data
    • Great way to move data
    • Great transfer speeds
    • Convenient
    • Portable
    • Cheap


    • No security


    I might be good to mention right now that the DiskOnKey is permanently on my keychain. Anything that can survive the insane tests I did (I admit to them being insane) deserves a place on my keychain. Aside from the physical characteristics, I value the DiskOnKey for it's reliability and convenience. It's nice to move a doc file onto it that I'm working on and take it to a friend's house and finish it over there. Or If my friends needs a special TIFF file or a big graphic, I can move it on the DiskOnKey and take it to his place. It's the little things like that that make the DiskOnKey such a potentially valuable tool. Also, the fact that I'm carrying a library of my reviews on my keychain is a great feeling and a great conversation starter. I've tried throughout this review to find something negative to say about the DiskOnKey but I really am at a loss for words. At $49.95 or lower, the price is good for the 8MB and at $99 for the 32MB, that isn't bad either. The device more than makes up for the cost with it's usability, portability, convenience, and reliability. I would trust all my important data to this anytime. The only thing I wish for is a password based security feature built into it so just in case I lost it, someone wouldn't be looking through all my files. In this case, its plug and play capability is a downside. But in all other factors, this is a device everyone should be wearing. Who knows? Maybe it's a trend for the future. There's something sexy about having a lot of power in such a small package.
