Doesn't deserve the bad reviews in my honest opinion!
on 22 March 2013
When I purchased this item I was looking for a memory stick / flash drive with a large capacity to transfer files, mp3's & videos between my laptop & my desktop & also my PS3. I bought this because of it's size & most importantly the price. I purchased the 32 gb model by the way.
It's been said that these flash drives are too slow!... Not for me they're not. After reading these statements I had originally decided to get a cup of coffee whilst waiting for the "lengthy" transfer of over 150 standard sized mp3's. However when I clicked "send to flash drive", the bar shot across the screen in under a minute... No time for coffee! Speed is not an issue with this product in my opinion; but then maybe my expectations are lower than most. I think for the price your getting a pretty good product. A simple bog standard model. If you want bells & whistles & most importantly "speed" then pay the extra money for something more expert. Your going to be hard pressed to exceed the capacity of the 16 gb model let alone the 32gb model.
The only problem I had was when I first connected it to my laptop. I use Windows 7 & when the usb activated it told me their was a problem with the software & the drive hadn't been installed properly. At that time I was pushed for time & decided to sort it out the following day. However, when I put it back in & the drive - (expecting more issues) - everything loaded up without any further problems & I am using the device daily now. I should also mention that it gets a bit hot when you transfer large quantities of data. I don't know if this may cause problems later on, but for now I am more than satisfied with thes product.
