Sony is a reputable company and has been known to develop some of the worlds best technologies. This little device of theirs is of a quality undescribable, not only does this store up to 512mb (technically approx 500mb) of data including music, documents, music, photos and all that important stuff, it also has programs specifically designed for this device, such as autozip which automatically compresses files as they are transfered to the device, pc lock which is extremly useful! (i use this alot!!) auto form filling for internet but also has the ability to lock a portion of the devices contents, so if you store files in that folder no one will be able to access it without a password.
On top of that, transfer and read speeds have increased by 7x!
I've had many USB Flash devices in the past and none of them can compare to what this has to offer, relatively expensive yes.. but think of what your getting, a top quality product, from a top brand company with a guarentee of a high degree of preformance in well crafted, designed and programmed external storage device.
If you ever need to replace your old flash drive or if your looking for a new one, I couldn't recommend this more! Sony has never let me down before! Sony offers high quality products and this is no exception! no more floppy discs or the trouble of burning data to CD/DVD-RW's, quick easy and simple.
This is among one of the best (if not the best) portable storage devices avaliable at the time of this review.
The software really sets its apart though. The autozip utility is simple and a useful way to instantly compress files to make the most of the space provided. The others include password protection, locking your computer(another safety feature) and an auto fill utility that fills out your forms etc.
My advice to anyone who has this or is thinking of buying it is to download the Autosynch utility from the website. It is actually meant to be for the Microvault PRO, and found on that page but works fine here(why shouldn't it, it's all just memory!). This is a great App that allows folders your computer to automatically synchronise with folders on the Microvault. This is great, as I could work on my laptop and the instant the Microvault was plugged in, everything was up-to-date in both directions. All this and no more floppies. Brilliant!
1. When using the drive you really have to use the 'stop USB drive' from the Quick buttons. Many of the pen drives I have used can survive being remove without it. But there is a much higher chance of loosing your data with this one.
2. These really are quite tough bits of kit! Mine has, to date, been run over by a Miltary Landrover (and they're heavy!!) and my missus, bless her, put my shrit in the wash without out removing the USB from the pocket. I would not advise you try either of these at home, but mine is still working.
All-in-all a good bit of kit and well worth 4 stars.
