Can't believe this has a 4 star rating it beggars belief the company must be putting up fake reviews. It's slow as he'll don't buy this I wanted to put a film on today and it took over 20 minutes. I have 5 years older USB that take 2 minutes to put the same film on.what this chunk of crap can do would be good in the 90s but not now avoid at all cost it's not worth it for few extra quid savings.

Unfortunately the memory stick did not work, my laptop displayed the message 'could not install driver' and did not allow me to put any files onto the stick.

I've had two of these now, one sent back because of writing speed. The replacement was actually worse.

Using H2testw v1.4

Writing speed: 2.07 MByte/s
Reading speed: 17.1 MByte/s

As a comparison I also tested a 8GB Sandisk Cruser - if only they still sold this drive

Cruser
Writing speed: 7.72 MByte/s
Reading speed: 26.8 MByte/s

Small: Yes. Cheap: yes. Slow: Yes.

Whether formatted for PC (FAT-32) or Macs (HFS+) this thing is mind-numbingly slow to write to. Don't buy this if you plan on getting things done quickly. I have flash drives that I've had for over 3 years that, after constant use, are still faster than this dog of a drive.

On the other hand, if you just want to use this to read from (maybe you're going to carry movie or music files on it) then you should be fine. It'll take you a long while to fill it to capacity, but if you don't change the files once they're on there, or add new ones, you should be OK.

Within a couple of weeks it had become unreliable. It only seems to work every 3rd time I insert it now. And this is after trying it in several ports. Sometimes it ejects itself after being inserted successfully. When it works, it works fine, but I can't rely on it to work when I need it to.
