Great deal that's hard to pass up on. Now...what will I actually use this for?

@allthefreakypeople: transferring/storing data? That's what I do.

It's a little slow for moving anything really big - writes at a bit less then 1 GB a minute. I use mine for daily differential backups. Writing 100 MB takes a handful of seconds, and the drive holds months and months worth.

I have the 8GB version, on my keychain, that I store scans of important personal docs (using TrueCrypt of course) in case my house burns down or whatever. It's been rattling around in my pocket with my for over a year and still works great.
Would recommend to a friend. :)

@wade308: I have a 8GB iamaKey key-shaped usb drive that is always on my keychain if I need to transfer files. But in terms of back-ups, that's what external drives and Dropbox/Sugarsync are for!

i dunno wtf is going on but i just ordered this and when i go to the rebate site it ask for the pat item code. i put it in and it lists it as a 32gb card not a thumb drive. strikes me as a way for them to get out of it if you ask me. grrr
