8Gb of removable ram in effect, most computers have either a USB port spare to plug one of these into or the capability to have one added.
Create a desktop short cut and you have a handy place to drag all those pictures music etc that other wise clutter.
In action it is not quick but that is expected. Plugged nto a spare USB port and you have a piece of (so far) reliable storage that can go with you when you walk away
The downsides. 8Gb is not correct. WIth these you get a usable 7.45Gb free, par for the course for these devices.
The metal shield (see photo). may physicaly protect the connector, however iwhen folded it does make the whole thing something scarily easy to lose when say stuffed into a pocket.
It needs removable top, pen stle cover with pocket clip or any way to add a cord to wear it around the neck. any or all of those would be useful. I xuppose you could loop a cord through the cover but then you effectively lose the cover.
If, like me, you leave it in the machine nearly full time, these quibbles are not really an issue.
so summarising too small when folded, reliable, 7,45Gb max usable capacity, really needs a clip or loop. pity they forgot to think about what happens when its not plugged in! It does what I need it to do so four out of five. i
I've had absolutely no problems with this flashpen whatsoever, it's been a great buy. Really good quality, and so cheap! If you need a big memory USB for a small price, this is definitely the one to go for.
Ordered on a Wednesday, the product arrived on Saturday. Plugged it in and the computer recognised it straight away. Transfer speed seemed slow at first, but I then hit on the idea of reformatting it from FAT32 to NTFS, which took just a few minutes. After that, the transfer rate was much quicker - dragging and dropping many files which took seconds to transfer. Delighted with it so far and find it the best way to transfer files quickly from the main computer to the laptop. Only one slight criticism, its capacity is actually 7.47Gb but it's still the simplest way to transfer large files. For anyone considering buying it, you'll definitely get value for money but be sure to format it first (to NTFS) and you won't be disappointed!
work in busy Accident and Emergency Dept and need to study..I found the memory stick invaluable the amount of mem is fantastic its compact so fits in my tunic pocket no bother hardly know its there ... If you buy this mem stick you will not be disapointed .... I have 4 power point presentations on it just now and 300 photographs with loads of mem left
Purchased and delivered no problem. Then after using it for a couple of weeks it suddenly froze and I could not retrieve any files from it which included client work. An expensive lesson learned as the last days work was not backed up and was lost. It was sent back and a refund was given. I think when it comes to purchases like this if it is for business purposes it pays to buy a high-end product which I have since done.
Who would have thought that I would be using these. This is far better than the one I bought at my supermarket. Its small, compact and very easy to use. It fits in my purse. It arrived after just 2 days.

Fantastic little piece of kit. I wanted to store 1500 tracks of Music and they all just fitted into the 8 Gig capacity. It took 2 hours to move them over from my Hard Drive, but I suspect that is because I only have a low spec Computer.
