    Verbatim, the global leader in data storage technology including portable hard drives, USB flash drives, CDs, Blu-ray discs and memory cards, packs unparalleled power, speed and reliability into its new Store ‘n’ Stay USB Drive. “The low-profile, snag-free design makes it the optimal USB flash drive choice for laptop users who want the ability to transfer, store and share their favorite files on impulse,” said Mark Rogers, Verbatim Product Manager, Flash Memory. “It’s meant to be left in the USB port for always-ready storage, and can be easily removed to share videos, photos, and music whenever the occasion arises!”

    Available in 4GB, 8GB and 16GB storage capacities, the Store ‘n’ Stay USB drive is a must-have accessory for any notebook or netbook user. Designed to be left in the USB port, its low-profile design makes sliding laptops or notebooks out of travel bags, sleeves and cases a cinch. It protrudes a mere 5 mm and can be easily removed for quick, convenient file sharing. Compatible with most Windows 2000, XP, Vista, and Windows 7 as well as Mac OS 9 or higher systems, the ultra compact Store ‘n’ Stay USB Drive features a USB 2.0 interface and is backed by Verbatim’s Limited Lifetime Warranty.

    That is essentially a Micro SDHC card reader with a card pre-inserted. I'd be surprised if it's Class 10.

    It's nothing wrong with that actually. My DeLock Nano key went bust for some reason so i disassembled it, taken out the 8GB microSD card which i'm now using in my smartphone.
    Otherwise i'd thrown it away entirely. But this way i'm still using it to some degree. Only controller and the casing was wasted.

    The "wrong" part is that unless it's Class 10, the Micro SDHC card has crap write speeds.

    This would be great to plug in my car "radio". The Kingston DTmini I'm using for that purpose at the moment isn't very reliable and has gone through complete formatting twice already.

    That's why it's named Store 'n' Stay, so it stays plugged into something for longer than being carried around in the pocket (think car stereos, notebooks with almost full HDDs, etc).

    to be honest after reading i looked forward to see some improvement in reliabiltiy because they said it could stay in the usb port....

    i think this is just another random/generic mini usb stick, and nice to know that microsd cards are inside.

    sometimes they sell those sticks for less than the cards :eek:
