    Give it a twist, a flick of the wrist, that's what the showman said! That is exactly what Swissbit has us doing with the SWISSMEMORY™ USB TWISTPRO. Swissbit knows that your tired of losing that cap on the end of your thumb drive, and they also know you just need more space to carry around your work files, along with those play time files. What else could you need in a USB device?

    How long do those usb thumb drives last? I heard from a friend they just give out and stop working after 6 months... That is if your not careful with them but ya.

    very nice drive. I love those drives that have caps attached to the drive, so you don't loose them

    All depends if you properly disconnect the drive (by stopping it) or if you just pull it out. If your just pulling it out without stopping the drive first, it will corrupt very easily. Otherwise it'll last a long long time.

    Yeah, but what can you do if you PC just freezes and you can do nothing but RESET??? That's happened to me twice, and TWICE my USB Flash Drives were fu**ed up. :(
    That's a common problem, especially with Generic USB Flash Drives.

    Seems like a good idea, I have a Cruzer mini 256mb usb storage, and it's lasted over 6 months. I just pull it out when I am done and have closed the windows. I guess I will actually hit the safe to remove hardware button now.
