A Genuine Amazon Bargain!
on 4 August 2015
I wasn't looking to buy a memory stick, but after purchasing an item on Amazon I was only a few pounds away from getting free delivery, and while perusing the top-up items, I stumbled upon this little gem and for under £4.00, I think it's a bargain.
Firstly, it comes in frustration free packaging; a cardboard envelope, so it's nice an easy to open. The memory stick itself is nicely designed,I love the metal casing with embossed logo, and it's tiny, it can easily fit on your keyring, or in your wallet/purse.
The actual usable capacity is 14.6GB, this is the case with all drives, you never get whats stated on the drive. The write speed is pretty slow at 4MB/s, if you need it for occasional use then it will be fine. If you intend to transfer lots of video or other large files then you might want to invest in a USB 3.0 memory.
Another slightdown side is there is no end cap for the drive, so if it's attached to your keyring and is in an out of your pocket you could get dust and dirt on the contacts.
But overall the drive is excellent value for money, it's good quality, a compact size and it does the job I want it to.
