The 128Meg Gizmo(tm) is about US$49.99 which is about US$20.00 more than the equivalent sized competition. If you need proof of this, click on the PRICEGRABBER link at the top of the page and you will see the prices I'm referring too. Let's see what almost double the price will get you other than a name brand.
Included is a three foot USB extension cable which is extremely handy if your computer doesn't have any front USB ports.
Afraid that you are going to drop your USB drive by mistake? Well, Crucial decided to also include a wrist strap that also can also be clamped on to your pants if you carry it in your pocket.
And alas, the flash drive. Some flash drives I have used have been on the bulky size, but the Gizmo is surprisingly small and compact.
