The title of this post translates to "The bigger, the better". I am now feeling it to be true as far as a USB drive is concerned. After the shiny tiny HP USB went kaput, I went to buy a new one and when the salesman was showing me those tiny ones, I told him that is not what I want "I am looking for those old fashioned ones, large plastic with a cap." and he gave me this. The smaller ones are not reliable as they heat up quite easily resulting is slower transfer rate and also don't last as long as the bigger ones.
