It has one really, really annoying habit, though.
The Korean drive indicates that it is active with a little tiny green LED at the end of its translucent casing. The SanDisk drive indicates that it is active with a really fucking bright blue LED that could act as a flashlight, at the end of its transparent casing.
Did I mention that I'm photosensitive? The thing blinks rapidly when it's accessed- and I'm extremely sensitive to blue glowy things such that it gives me a headache to have the damn thing in my field of view.
WAY TO GO, DUMBASS DESIGNERS. Why the fuck do they think I want a flashlight sticking out of my computer? Perhaps it's because it makes the entire casing appear to glow, which I admit is cool, but it hurts. I know I'm not the only one sensitive to that- the brightly blinking thing has to be distracting to everybody. What's so bad about a small discreet LED?
