Amazing form factor, quality and packaging,
This review is from: iBoutique IB32GUSB2 USB 2.0 Hi-Speed Elite Flash Drive (32GB, Emerald Green) (Accessory)
I've been buying several flash drives over the last year, on eBay primarily.
Many of those have been made by big brands like Sandisk or Corsair.
But sooo many times I had to return them because they were either so flimsy they fell apart almost on arrival or had some transfer / technical issues.
This product, on the other hand, even though it comes from a brand I have never heard off before, had exceeded my every expectation.
The performance is great, never had any issues from the start. Formatted in FAT32.
The form factor and design is impeccable - it actually feels cool when you are holding it.
It is sturdy and well put together (does not feel like it's going to fall apart like with some other drives)
The packaging is cool too. Comes in a little plastic box with a magnetic lock. (I've actually kept it :)
I very rarely write reviews for products, but for this one, I felt like I must.
Highly recommend it!

Mr. A. J. Simpson says:
Could you please comment on its write and read speeds please? USBDeview or Check flash are both free utilities you can download that will check the speed of your flash drive. Or even when writing or reading via windows 7 if you click on the more details drop down in the copying box it displays the speeds as windows clocks them (that isn't all that accurate but still gives a rough idea. This would be really helpful and much appreciated.
I'm after write speeds around 10mb/sec Plus

Mr. Nicholas Wright says:
Customer states he formatted drive in FAT32 - you can only access files of size 4Gb or under with FAT32 therefore drive should be formatted preferably with NTFS.
BTW Amazon - I`ve sussed you out , funny how these IDENTICAL reviews appear on totally different USB drives :-)

RE: FAT32 / NTFS. You're correct about the 4Gb file size limit for FAT32. However, I keep FAT32 because NTFS is not recognised by my Technomate Satellite Receiver. (I record TV programs to USB, copy them to my PC, and play with the VLC media player). Besides, why should it _need_ to be pre-formatted to NTFS ? Repartitioning and reformatting a filesystem is easy enough for a tech-savvy person.

A lot of the momery cards and flash drives sold on eBay are fake, that is probably why you had issues, it's best to look at the manufacturer website, they normally have a list of companies that they supply.
