    Got a N005 and it gets hot. Sure it is faster then my USB2 sticks and it much easiere to find in a bag. Its big like a lighter. I asume the second/third generations will improve.

    Got the N005 as well and sometimes I'm worried I'm going burn myself on it. In fact, it's my second one, as the first one died after less than a year...
    The N005 Pro has nice performance at least and even the S102 Pro isn't bad, but the C103 is just pointless for most, 10MB/s write, wtf? Sadly it has the best design imho, as I just hate caps on USB drives...

    Just sold my 32GB one. Lost my 16GB drives.

    Only sold my 32GB one cuz I was afraid I would lose it. $100 on a something the size of a lighter (I lose lighters constantly) is to much a worry.

    Other than that its great.

    Just wish flash drives were capable of fitting next to other flash drives. Plugging one in anything other than the spread style many front panel USB ports in cases, means blocking another port.

    FYI, yes mine ran warm too, no issues with it doing so though. and a year ago getting 80/60 performance was a good thing :)

    I also affectionately called it my n00b series drive
