    As my laptop does not have a floppy drive I needed an easy to use removable storage device. I looked at smaller size flash drives but wanted to be able to transfer large files, or large numbers of files between work and home without having to continually burn cd's or have to carry multiple pen drives.
    Copying files is very quick and painless, being plug and play on windows 2000/xp you just plug it in and start moving files to the new removeable drive that appears. With this pen drive I found copying an 800mb divx movie via USB2 to or from a pc took about 2mins. Transfering the file on a computer that doesn't have USB2 took over 12minutes.
    The extension cord is very useful if you only have USB ports at the back of your computer - or if you have something else plugged into an adjoining port. I found it impossible to plug the drive directly into my laptop without unplugging something else.
    Finally I would definately recommend going for a 1Gb drive rather than 128mb or 256mb - the extra space comes in so handy (especially being able to copy entire divx movies which are often larger than can fit on a single cd) and more than justifies the price.

    I needed a new removeable storage devise after I noticed that my old pen drive's capacity was becoming too small to carry video clips and photo's between my siblings PC's.
    After buying a ByteStor 128MB flash pen drive for a friend last Christmas (she says it's one of her favourite computing accessories) I opted for this particular manufacturer and their 1GB model.
    The good points are;
    1) 1GB (well not quite due to the Microsoft OS),
    2) USB 2.0 making the saving and loading of files rather quick,
    3) Software security (If you use this feature you MUST remember your password or the drive will automatically format itself.)
    The bad points are;
    1) It has a rather bulky form (a bit like me) so connecting it to a recess USB sockets may prove a bit of a problem on some computers but don't worry as an extension USB cable is provided.
    2) Since this is really a two in one drive, once plugged in, your PC will asign a floppy disk drive letter A: or B: depending on your PC's configuration. This in itself is not a bad idea really but you do have to remember to unplug it if you have to reboot your PC.
    All in all it is a good devise and one I would recommend to anyone.

    A few months ago, i bought a bytsestar 128mb flash drive, i soon decided i needed more space on the drive, mainly because i needed to copy very large file sizes for my media studies. This pen drive is great for transferring/ carrying around big MPEG files or even whole programs.
    The bytestar 1gb flash drive is also a LOT cheaper than other 1gb flash drives on the market (ive seen some for £400!) So if you are looking for a device that can hold a large amount of data, for a good price, look no further!
    It needs no setup with windows ME or XP, just plug in and go.

    This is my second USB pen-drive, the first being an Iomega 256 model, and I am very impressed with this one. For the low price, the speed and capacity is wonderful. Running this on a USB2 system and transfer speeds are excellent. The combination of Hard drive and floppy (comes up as drive B: on my system) is nice too - the 'floppy' contains the user manual and security software. Once you set a password then windows cannot even access the data part of the drive. This only works on Windows machines though, so Mac users dont have this security facility. The supplied extension cable is a must, since this drive is a little wider and bulkier than others - without the extension it would be impossible to insert the drive on some PC's if the USB ports are clustered closely, or impossible to insert other USB gear at the same time.
    There is no installation required for most windows versions, and it even works under linux.
    Maybe it's just me, but the case seems to give the impression that you dont want to drop this on something solid though - it just 'sounds' flimsy when I put it down on the desk.
    Otherwise I like this kit, and it would have had the full 5 stars apart from my concerns about the case.

    Bytestore offer excellent value and I have had mine for a year and no problems so far.
    Slight downside is that it has a slightly bulky case which can make it difficult fitting into USB ports that are angled flush to the PC case (as with some Dells) or next to another USB port that is being used. They get round that though by providing an extension cable which will allow it to fit.
    All-in-all the best value Pen drive around.

    This thing has been so useful I dont now how I lived without one for so long. I must have saved about £10 in cds already and I've only had it for a couple of months. The extra size comes in real handy for transfering files in one go or, if your into ipod, music albums from one computer to another. Managed to get 18 albums on there and then take it to work. Works well on both mac and pc although as soon as its plugged into a mac it creates hidden folders which will show up on a pc. The transfer rate is excellent if you have a newish computer but can be 4 times slower on a older machine but still faster than burning a cd.
