The Sony 16GB Micro Vault USM-Q USB Flash Drive (Black) is a compact USB 3.0 flash drive, ideal for travel. It is USB 3.0 compatible and offers transfer speeds up to 120MB/s. The design features a sleek metal body and a clicking mechanism, similar to a ballpoint pen, for revealing the USB connector from the protective housing. This one-piece design eliminates the need to worry about losing a cap or protecting the connection point. There is also a loop on the end for attaching a strap for more secure carrying possibilities. An LED indicator on the edge illuminates during data transfers for status indication.
