Apacer Handy Steno
The drive comes in a very compact case, most of which is the USB connector. The red cap has small depressions in the sides for easier opening. The cap locks in place and cannot slip off accidentally. There is a blue LED in the butt-end of the case. A rim for a neck strap is located there as well. The manufacturer’s name is printed on the side of the case.
The accessories include a small loop of round-section cord, a wide band made from soft translucent plastic with the manufacturer’s name against a green background, and a small plastic trinket with a metallic chain.
Dimensions: 38 x 15 x 5mm; weight: 5g.
This is one the smallest flash drives in this review. It is only 37mm long including the cap and the cord ring. Fortunately, the manufacturer didn’t try to make the device as tiny as possible. The case is thick enough to lie snugly in the fingers. As a drawback, the cap can be lost easily because it cannot be fastened at the back of the flash drive during work.
The case is made from aluminum with plastic pieces at the butt-ends. The drive comes with a neck strap.
Dimensions: 37.0 x 17.6 x 9.7mm; weight: 7.1g.
This flash drive looks cute and neat thanks to its compact size and white glossy plastic. It is not very handy, though. It takes an effort to remove the cap as it is tight and too sleek for the fingers. Besides, the small plastic caps are easy to lose. Fortunately, the kit includes four spare caps of different colors.
Dimensions: 52.5 x 18.9 x 8.2mm; weight: 7.5g.
