Though, KingMax @ , it's not a very household name, and being found in 2001(The digital media sector, they have been in the semi-conductor business since 1989), this Taiwanese company has been pumping out Flash memory, as well as memory for computers and laptops for the last few years.

The Super Stick one of KingMax's many lines of USB flash drives, and they advertised it as the 'Worlds Smallest Flash Drive'. Maybe? You tell me.

Set Up

Plug and Play. Ain't hard


Hard to describe. Thin plastic with 4 strips for the USB plug. It's also quite rigid, I couldn't bend it because :

The Super Stick is a hip little USB. It can be thrown in a pocket, in a wallet, even worn around your neck as some sort of testament of your geekhood. The USB weights roughly the same as a paperclip, and the 2.0 drive allows for high-speed transfer of all your files. Being so tiny, you\'d think it\'d break easily, but the gadget is made of a patented packaging technology that\'s stronger than plastic or aluminum casing. In fact, the gadget doesn\'t even have casing -- it itself is built into a sealed substrate making it resistant to water, heat, shock and ice picks -- the thing is practically indestructible (seriously!)

Putting in the USB was hard at first, as it's so intimidatingly small! It looks like you put it upside down with the 4strips facing up, and plug it under the plastic middle in the USB port.


Actually, I do not buy this pendrive yet. The review above is made by the person who already buy that pendrive. I will buy this pendrive soon so I can make my own review about it. :D
