An E-book reader.
Because this is my first e-reader, I can't judge it against it's peers. It works well.
It is spectacular hardware-wise. Its software works, but it is sometimes obviously or even critically lacking. It lacking a file browser and respecting directories is bad enough that I can't really use it for its intended purpose, and almost regret buying it.
I have trust issues with all storage, but flash memory-based storage is particularly unreliable.
TL;DR - Stubby metal drives are a problem.
Note that solid state thumb drives exist; use them.
When a USB stick has been used for, say, a bootable Linux distribution, it usually cannot be re-used as a mass storage device by, say, Windows. These instructions are to wipe/reset a usb stick so it will work as it used to.

A very inexpensive yet capable phone.
At a glance, it seems okay. Android and every app I've seen have many UI flaws, but that's not the X20's fault.
After a week of use, I have to say this is a fantastic phone. It's the perfect beginner's smartphone and there's nothing I've done that's been limited in any way whatsoever by its specifications. I have not run out of storage or memory.. not even close. Do note that I haven't played any games, and I probably never will.
I am really ticked that it doesn't have OTG support, so I can't use the microSD for anything but charging. Powering off, pulling my charging dongle out, removing the half-case, removing the battery cover, removing the battery and moving the CD card back and forth is an awful, awful, way for me to edit files.
The minimum volume is way too loud.
I don't think the bottom microUSB port works for a USB key.
This concept and these notes are entirely obsoleted by dm-crypt, if you want a complete encryption solution.
It's remarkably simple.
Logical Volume Management
Problem: A USB stick cannot boot with any of Porteus, the boot-repair LiveUSB, or SystemRescueCD. It used to be bootable with Porteus, and before that it could boot with other Linux LiveUSB distributions.
An fast, moderate-sized and extraordinarily cheap drive.
Refurbished, but these seem to be in good shape. Don't expect the intel manufacturer's warranty to have much, if any, time left. You're leaning on newegg, and then perhaps your credit card's insurance policy, if it has one.
A very high quality and easy-to-use dictaphone / mp3 player / USB stick.
- DEAD - This isn't in use, even as a music player, because I wrecked the audio jack.
- abandoned - the store page is gone and I didn't have a brand page
- There is no name brand or model identification on this device or its documentation.
