    Unfortunately this drive is not Readyboost compatible.

    I got one of these a couple of months ago, it's supposed to be USB 2.0 but it's slower than any USB 1.1 flash drive that I have ever owned. Not worth the $10 unless you have a couple of hours to spare while it transfers 2GB onto the drive.

    I agree with bigrick...

    I have this same drive and the transfer speed were INCREDIBLY slow. Slower than any 1.1 device I have ever used.

    It never failed or anything like that, so it still has a TON of reliable storage, just don't expect it to be fast.

    Yes, I'm sure. That's a different drive. The one Buy.com is selling is:

    SimpleTech SimpleTech 2GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive - Designed by Pininfarina 2GB Incompatible

    I have the 1GB Pininfarina model and it's SLOW! Vista also says it's Incompatible when it was tested.
