I bought this USB memory stick to protect my computer ... I bought this USB memory stick to protect my computer from being infected by a computer virus. I often need to transfer pictures to public computers. The USB stick prevents the transfer of a virus because it has a physical write protect switch. 4Five Stars The switch keeps the blue ray player from writing the BUDHA. 5Get one before they get discontinued. I selected this model as it has a switch on it to make it "read-only". As a computer tech, I can plug this into any machine and not have "cooties" jump on it. I wish the switch had a bit more of a "click" to it, but it has never moved itself to another position without my intervention.At one time I had a PQI model, but it was very, very slow compared to this.Also, any time it is reading or writing a red light in the end flashes to let you know it is busy. It is bright enough, ...but not too bright. 5Works well, would recommend. Like many IT professionals, I'm constantly working on infected machines and keep my toolkit on a flash drive. Worried about compromising my drive and then other machines, I purchased this Kanguru drive.It's 8GB (not sure where the other reviewer saw a different size), it does have an activity light when it's in use, and the physical write-protect switch works as intended.I boot from this drive as well as keep other standard programs on it, have had no issues at all. Would buy again and recommend. 5Perfect for virus / malware recovery It's fast enough and write protected as promised.I put all my antivirus, malware scan, recovery, and partitioning tools on here and then hit the write protect to keep it safe. Used it just today to fix the neighbor's malware-infested PC without worrying that his STDs would infect my USB drive. 5Great for IT work Fast and functional, the FlashBlu30 with write-protect is a good choice for any IT professional, where inserting a USB stick in a potentially compromised PC is undesirable. It has worked well and have had no issues with it. Two remarks:1) At this time (8/12/2014), Kanguru only claims that their Defender line of USB sticks is invulnerable to "BadUSB". However, diligent use of the write-protect on the FlashBlu30 should provide adequate protection.2) The product gets a one star reduction for two usability weaknesses: a) write-protect switch should be at the back-end of the USB stick for easier accessibility, and b) I'd much prefer a sliding cap rather than the removable cap (which can get lost especially since it is transparent!). 4Work as expected First write-protect USB-drive I've used. Worked perfectly.The only negative bit is that the switch doesnt have any resistance to it, so it moves quite easily back and forth between write and write-protected.So if you put in your pocket, you must remember to check it before using it. 4so it's good for dealing with malware Has hardware write notch, so it's good for dealing with malware. 5Best on the market These are by far the most reliable, hi-performance thumb drives with a HARDWARE lock.I'm an I/T tech and manage 100's of computers. I store all my utilities/apps on these andhaving the ability to lock it (prevent malware, data loss, etc) before inserting it into thosecomputers has been a life saver. 5Excellent, however... Works great. But I noticed:- the switch does not have a solid feel to it. When in locked position, it can easily slide back to open if one is not careful in manipulating the key- the key's color is pale blue, not the bright blue shown on the picture. I prefer bright colors because it's harder to loose a bright color key 4
