This product is the new variant, which is no longer the very thin (1mm) flat version, but for some inexplicable reason now a slightly fatter version 2.5mm (?).
doesn't work for me at all
I returned it
It is beyond me why Verbatim would have changed this
One thing I was pleased to see is that on the back of the packet there is explicit reference to 'Linux 2.4.0 or higher' amongst the supported operating systems. There is no reason why the vast majority of USB flash drives would not work on Linux out-of-the-box, but it's good to see the manufacturer has bothered to list it anyway for buyers' peace of mind.
So far it seems to work fine, but requires insertion upside down on the PC USB port. There is a short cable supplied that can be looped around the hole on the drive for attaching to a key ring or hanging up somewhere to avoid losing it. Other brightly coloured versions of this product are available for those who fear it will slip into the nearest dog, but this one is good if you want something more discreet. There is also some small EXE file for password protection software pre-installed but that is probably Windows-only and not required in my case anyway. It can be safely ignored.
It's very small - I thought it'd be too small for my USB at first and very robust - I've had it on my keyring which literally doesnt leave me at any point during the day in a pocket full of change etc and its never had any problems. I love it so much I'm considering getting another.
Highly recommended - I've even managed to get a couple colleagues to get one each too!
product is brilliant value for money!
Now had it for several months and it's been very hardy - no problems.
