    I thought to share my benchmark, if somebody is interested.

    Hi. I'm thinking of getting a SDCZ80-032G-X46, which looks like it has the same form factor as the one you have. Could you tell me how wide it is? It looks like I would have to unplug the adjacent USB device to get the memory stick in on my MacBook Pro.

    I'm not sure but I guess you can't use 2 of those next to each other...
    It's width is 0.85", and its kinda close to the old U3 flash drive (which I couldn't use 2 like it together on my previous MBP non-retina 13").

    Thanks for getting back to me.

    That's very wide. So wide that on a MacBook that I'd have to unplug everything USB before I could put in the memory stick. Apple really need to start increasing the distance they have between USB ports, and USB manufactures have to stop making their memory sticks so chunky.

    Thanks for the benchmark. I'm thinking to get one of this and use for a Windows 8.1 VM on VMware Fusion. Anyone have tried that?
