    Fast, Functional, and Fun, October 7, 2010

    By Sergeant Farron

    This review is from: HP v165w 16 GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive P-FD16GHP165-EF (Blue) (Electronics)

    This is a great little piece of machinery. It’s straightforward, functional, and–what can I say?–truly cute. It’s one of the teeniest USB flash drives I’ve ever seen, and for me, that’s a good thing. I needed a USB drive that could fit into the back port of my Xbox 360 (the original white Arcade model), and the HP v165w does the trick beautifully. It also works great as a storage device for your computer. Here’s a breakdown of its features: >> The package The v165w comes in a thin, minimal-plastic package that looks exactly like the container shown on the product photos. It’s basically a plastic holder sandwiched between two pieces of cardboard. Nice to look at, hard to open (just like most electronics packaging). Inside, you get the actual USB drive and a tiny lanyard similar to something you’d find on a cell phone charm. No other instructions or slips of paper are included (not that they’re needed). The back of the packaging lists the following system requirements: - Windows and Mac compatible - Operating systems supported: Windows: 2000, XP, Vista, 7 Mac OS: 10.3 or later. USB 2.0 >> It’s tiny! This is a very small USB drive, which can be good or bad depending on your needs or tendency to lose small things. The entire drive could almost fit on a U.S. quarter, meaning it can go all the places a quarter can: a pocket, a wallet, or underneath the sofa cushion. With the lanyard, you can easily hang it from your cell phone as an ultra-techie decorative charm. It won’t crowd your keys, either. If you’re a person who needs some on-the-go storage available at all times, this ultra-portable drive won’t let you down. The translucent blue covering is a great color, too. With its sleek, concave styling, it’s almost reminiscent of a bite-sized blue Xbox 360, which brings me to my next topic… >>It plays well with the Xbox The v165w is one of the few USB drives that actually fits into that secret USB port at the back of most original Xbox 360 models. It also fits quite nicely in the front two ports, if you prefer to use those. It’s small enough that it’ll fit snugly without sticking out of any of the ports, and yet you can pull it out if need be. The great news is that it passes Microsoft’s performance tests with flying colors. Once I formatted it for my Xbox–a total of 14.5 GB were available–I got the thumbs-up that this USB drive met specifications. Awesome! Update Nov. 30, 2010: It seems some people have been having problems with the 4GB version of this USB drive when using it for Xbox data storage. I wanted to come back and say that I have not encountered any problems with my 16GB drive at all. Since this drive is supplementary to an official Xbox hard drive I have on the system, I don’t keep any vital data like my profile or current game saves on this 16GB USB. I do, however, save all my videos to it, and I’m able to play back all videos without a hitch. I’ve also put old game saves and downloadable content on the USB without any issues. My recommendation is to use this drive as a companion to your official Xbox hard drive in order to free up space on your primary HD. Likewise, I suggest keeping the USB connected to the system if you decide to use it that way, so the Xbox continually recognizes it as a data storage device. Since I haven’t tested the other sizes of this USB, I can’t accurately review them. But I continue to recommend the 16GB version of this USB drive as supplementary Xbox 360 storage. >>It plays well with computers Before commissioning the USB stick for Xbox storage, I tried it out with my computer. I was happy to see that the v165w is a straightforward storage device with no hidden or extraneous software pre-installed. You pop it in, wait a few seconds for your computer to recognize it, then open up the folder to find 15.1 GB of fresh space waiting to be filled. Beautiful. I’m not a speed maven, so I didn’t do any special speed tests with transferring large files and such. I will say that it seemed as quick as other USB drives I’ve used–maybe even quicker. The v165w also works perfectly across Windows and Mac platforms. Files saved on one operating system are easily recognized by the other. >>Things to note * This USB drive comes with a cap, meaning the cap can be lost or misplaced. It fits very snugly on the drive, though, so it shouldn’t come off on its own. * There are no LED lights or other indicators to let you know the drive is running. This is understandable, because the whole point of the v165w is portability. Still, it’s something to keep in mind. * You get 15.1 GB of computer storage and 14.5 GB of Xbox storage because the Xbox uses up about 500MB for…

    Works Well–Used for Car Audio, December 27, 2010

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    This review is from: HP v165w 16 GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive P-FD16GHP165-EF (Blue) (Electronics)

    I wanted a thumb drive that I could plug into the USB port on my car stereo that could hold a lot (16 gigs) of music. This fulfilled those requirements. The added benifit is that its small, so it doesn’t attract a lot of attention. PROS: -Small -Tight cap (won’t fall off) -Holds a lot of (music) info CONS: -None for me! Other Thoughts: Its so small that I can plug it into my netbook and leave it there without worrying about it snagging on anything (like a case).

    Drive functions well, but plastic loop will break, February 13, 2011

    By Library CD Borrower (Boston, MA) –

    This review is from: HP v165w 8 GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive P-FD8GBHP165-EF (Blue) (Electronics)

    This drive is meant to be carried on a keyring. There is a small plastic loop on the flash drive which allows you to attach a key fob, which comes with the product, to a keyring. The only problem is that this plastic loop is made of flimsy, thin plastic that will easily break. I broke mine simply by dropping it from a supermarket checkout belt, a 4 foot drop – not a throw or a smash, mind you, just a drop of 4 feet. Such a drop is really within normal use of the product that is meant to be carried on a keyring, and it can’t withstand that sort of use. So the product is a failure in my opinion. If you break it, you can either carry the flash drive loose in your pocket or attempt to plastic-weld it. But even if you plastic-weld a new loop, it will likely break again. (Been there, done that.) I do give high praise for the key fob – it’s perfectly shaped, it swivels, is small yet durable, and prevents your keys from tugging at your USB drive while it’s plugged into a computer. That is, if the plastic loop hasn’t broken off yet. And I do give high praise for the functionality and speed of the drive itself. But again, the physical durability of the drive in its out-of-the-box state leaves a lot to be desired. And that’s the main point of this drive. Oh, and you will lose the plastic cap. But the drive will function perfectly well without the unneeded protection of the cap, even if you keep the USB drive swishing around your pocket with a bunch of sharp metal keys. A better investment is to buy a “key-shaped” USB drive instead of this one, such as one issued by LaCie. These drives are metal-bodied, even more compact, and are designed well for the use and mild abuse that a keyring-attached USB drive must withstand. I haven’t bought one yet, but the physical durability of the LaCie drives have good reviews from Amazon users.
