Nice and small, but not so quick,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cruzer Fit 16 GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive (SDCZ33-016G-B35) (Personal Computers)
I picked up two of these little USB sticks, one 16gb and one 8gb, for use in a touchscreen media portal for the kitchen (the O2 Joggler, since you asked). I wanted something that was small and discrete, and did not stick out of the side of the unit like a sore thumb. These certainly did not disappoint on that front...
Once I received and opened the packaging, my initial suspicions were confirmed: these USB sticks are actually just MicroSDHC cards with a USB interface - that's why they're so small. The sticks I received contained Class 4 SDHC cards. They do their job just fine: they're really tiny, capacious and really unobtrusive. They're also quite easy to plug in and remove from USB ports. Being so small, I was a little worried about not being able to unplug them without a pair of pliers... Thankfully, the pliers can stay in the toolbox.
The read speeds on these sticks are more than adequate - I managed to play 1080p video from both models with no problems at all. However the write speeds were a little disappointing... My three-year old 8gb Emtec USB stick can manage write speeds of up to 13.5mb/s, whereas these can achieve around 6mb/s at best. If Class 6 or even Class 10 uSDHC cards had been used, I suspect that the write speed would be far better.
A great price, and great service from both Amazon and the seller, but they're probably not best suited to applications which require writing a great deal of data to the stick.
