There's actually not that much to say. This 4GB USB 2.0 pendrive is physically small and driverless on XP.

The drive comes pre-formatted FAT32 so is ready to plug and go and a really simple but useful touch is the cap clips on the end - this should mean no more lost caps.

A colour coded USB extension cable us supplied but it does not come with a neck strap - that is the only niggle.

Last but not least, a 2 year guarantee - outstanding.

The USB stick arrived within two days, very speedy from Amazon!

-Holds 3.77Gb of data (not 4Gb), this will apply to other brands of USB stick as well so bear that in mind.

-Transfers 174mb video file in 46s. Transfer rate 3.78Mb/s

-Transfers 350mb video file in 1m33s. Transfer rate 3.76Mb/s

-See through plastic case, pretty cool.

-Plastic lid is quite tight, no danger of it falling off. Lid also fits onto back of drive so there is less chance of losing it.

-Sturdy construction. Comes with USB extension cable approx 50cm long. 2 Year Guarentee.

-Bargain price! Excellent quality.

The same colour as shown in the picture, capless its about 68mm long 7mm thick and 18mm wide, it has a small green activity LED, and no "read only mode" switch despite having what looks like a place on the PCB for one. It comes with a 50cm blue USB extension cable, as previously mentioned, which people would happily trade for a neck strap/string for attaching it to a keyring, and a read only mode switch.

Formatted capacity in windows is 3.74GB.

Speed wise;

1min47sec to copy a 698MB iso to it (6.5MB/sec)

Smaller files are much slower

1min to copy 40.1MB in 150 files (0.67MB/sec)

The cap clips on with clips on either side of the USB plug, adds a few mm to its length, and has a hole in the end. The USB plug does feel slightly loose, and I am not sure I would like to risk it in a washing machine.

£20 delivered for a 4GB flash stick, despite the niggles, is at the moment excellent value.

I have had this pen drive for about a week now and all seems ok at the moment. Speed wise it seems consistent with my other pen drive which was to be expected. It is though, much slower than an external hd.

For average pen drive data, application patches, document files, pictures, music etc this is more than fast enough and holds a lot for a good price.

On the downside the case while being small and should fit most USB sockets, holds the circuit board a bit loosely so there is movement when to insert or remove. This may become a problem over time. It is also missing a neck strap which I find more useful than the USB extension cable that comes with it. I prefer to wear round my neck when at work and most pc's have accessible USB sockets today.

All in all a good pen drive at a good price.

Pleasantly surprised at the speed of this pen. It shifts very large video files at a transfer rate of approx. 1Gb per minute, and makes the task of moving video from my PVR to a laptop and then to my PC, a doddle. Used to take me ages using a DVD-RW.

Highly recommended.

When I plugged the drive in, a window came up telling me the drivers could not be installed and the drive was not accessible. After re-inserting the drive, everything was fine. So if you have Vista and get a warning like that, don't panic and try again. A great drive, I have had the 1GB version for a while and had no problems with it.

Great bit of kit, list of what I would call useful points below;

1. Huge capacity - 3.74gb usable (same reduction as most usb sticks)

2. Have been using this to transfer holiday piks/vids etc between home/work and friends computers.... only hiccup so far was when we plugged it into a machine running Vista - but only had to take it out and plug it back in and all was well - thats what you get for using Vista eh!

3. Seems to me to be as fast as any of my other USB sticks (but I don't sit in front of my pc with a stopwatch measuring bit-rates or anything)

4. Very compact - it's the smallest one I own, and seems well built - it's been thrown around the front room, dropped and rattles around in my pockets on a motorbike with no ill effects whatsoever.

5. Would be handy if you could attach it to a normal keyring - but that's only cause I keep losing things :-)

6. Absolute bargain!!!

Enjoy...

Note that buffalo are not in the habit of reporting any actual performance statistics for their products to back up the claim of "high speed". Yes it's cheap, but there are way faster sticks out there for only a few pounds more (try 30MB/s Samsung sticks for £25 instead of 3MB/s).

Also note that FAT16/32 filesystems suck, performance wise. Try NTFS, HFS, XFS, anything at all for a free improvement in perf.
