Final Words and Conclusion
Both the Penguin BLU and Executive-I are perfect if you’re looking for a novelty birthday or Christmas gift for someone or an item to brighten a dull working environment. However, if you need a USB drive for function rather than fun, there are many more suitable drives out there.
The USB Penguin BLU’s only real selling point – apart from its quirky appearance – is the bootable linux image that comes pre-installed. This works perfectly although I feel this doesn’t make up for its rather poor overall performance. The Executive-I performed remarkably better than the Penguin BLU, but not as well as many other similarly-priced drives on the market.
