    Small and good quality memory stick, all plastic so a little lightweight compared to some but seems solid enough, cap fits firmly.

    Pleasantly surprised by read speed, manufacturer only quotes 8Mb/s but I get 17-18Mb/s at least sometimes up to 22Mb/s so is very quick for a budget priced stick. Write speed not as impressive, manufacturer quotes 7Mb/s and this is about right, a single 350Mb file took 51 secs (6.86Mb/s), 8Gb of video files took 18m30s (7.32Mb/s) and 4Gb of mp3's took 16m30s (4.34Mb/s) so a bit slower with multiple files and folders. Quite happy with write speed really as I only use a fraction of the capacity most of the time but is nice to have the space if needed, fast read speed compensates for the comparatively slow write speed in a way.

    Seems a very good value memory stick, small and neat, quick enough for most people. Recommended.

    What more is there to say? This is a lightweight, compact, robust (I jammed mine in the car door by accident and it survived), 8 gigabyte memory stick. I use mine to transfer a variety of file types quickly between a range of laptops and PCs running both XP and Vista, at home and at work. It is recognised instantly and file transfer is relatively fast considering the size of some of my animation and video files. I have a few Freecom products; all of them are great gadgets with very basic aesthetics...definitely a case of "form follows function"; the function being reliable, compact storage at a reasonable price.

    For those people reporting only 8 MB instead of 8 GB: the memory stick comes with a security application on it. If you use it and specify password protection then most of the stick is `invisible'. If you subsequently format the stick you will still have this `problem' (the stick remembers the security). You have to put the application back on the stick and remove the password protection to see the full 8 GB.

    Regarding the 7.54GB instead of 8GB: the useable capacity of any formatted media is less than is true size. Just take a look at your Hard Disk Properties and you will see a similar reduction.

    By the way the stick is much smaller than it appears in the photos.

    I purchased one of these 8GB Databars in January and the same happened to me recently. The stick only showed 8MB available (very disappointing). I called the Freecom support line, who immediately diagnosed that the problem was due to me disconnecting the stick from my PC with the software still running, (silly me, the manual tells me to close the Carry it Easy software before disconnecting). They gave me a fix and hey presto I am back to my 8GB stick. It is a shame the software is only a 30-day trial but I wont be using it anymore, the DataBar is perfect on its own. Perfect size, perfect price and perfect capacity.
    5 stars for the product and 5 stars for their tech support.

    Not much to complain about with this device. It's small, light, fast and good value for money. I've been using one of these to transfer files between home and college for a while now without any problems. The cap on it is real handy too and is much more secure than some other models that I have used. I would definitely recommend Freecom if you're in need of a USB stick!

    I found this piece of gear quite satisfacory but there are one or two points that prevent me from giving it 5 stars. Firsly, the top is 'push on' and when you take it off there is nowhere to put it except on the desk: I am worried that it will get lost. Secondly, the transfer speed is OK but not marvellous: it took me a couple of minutes longer to transfer a 3.7 GB file to it than it took me to transfer the same file to my 4 GB Cruzer USB stick. But it does what it says on the box!

    Absolutely no problems with this product - deleted the free software that comes with it and still have full capacity!

    As for build quality - unquestionable!
    So far mine had been:
    Dropped
    Stood on
    Put through the washing machine
    thrown around
    etc

    still working fine =D

    great value for money too!
