Using the USB extending cable that comes with the kit, I used one of the USB ports in the rear of my system to prep for testing.

When plugged into my system, it automatically opens Windows Explorer and has one file pre-installed on the thumb drive called: CarryitEasy. This is a software tool that lets you have your Outlook profile synced to the thumb drive and other documents that you setup as well. This is great for those that move from one machine to another frequently.

The speed test was done using Sisoft Sandra. The drive gets you the speeds of 260 operation(s)/min, which is on the slow side whereas I have other units that operate over 11238 operation(s)/min.

The case of the flash drive does get a little warm measuring in at 116F after being connected for a while to my computer.

Overall the Cyber Snipa Dog Tags give you lots of storage space and a convenient way of carying them around. Personally, I would wear the tool tag around my neck all the time. The weight would most likely bother me in the long run. The USB thumb drive is light enough that it doesn't matter.

I thought the heat problem was isolated, but the drive did warm up on more than one machine while I used it to move files around at work and at home.

Thanks to Cyber Snipa for sending over this sample!



Pros:

  • Convenient way to carry tools around
  • Roomy 4GB


  • Cons:

    • Slow speeds on the benchmarks
    • Warms up  to 116F during use
