Great little flash drive, yet to be faulted

  • Excerpt: I bought this device around 4 years ago at a cost of just over £12. This is probably expensive these days as the cost of flash drives has decreased significantly over the past number of years. I was not long in starting uni and I was extremely worried about losing all my data if my hard drive where to fail on my laptop. I had been using DVDs to backup my data but this had become time consuming and I could only store 4.7GB of data onto a single DVD.

Best for those who want a no-frills bargain.

  • Excerpt: I was fortunate enough to get this flash drive for free from a local website and have used it for backup ever since throughout my school years and now into university. The Freecom Databar is efficient enough for those who need to back up small documents. At 4 gigabytes it's hardly the largest on the market but is large enough for me since, as a student, office documents don't take up loads of space anyway.

Value for money and secure

  • Excerpt: As always at work, the devices used in ICT are being changed all the time. The latest change has come with the flash drives we are being given to use. Each and every day the flash drive used is placed in and out of several computers, a lot of data is stored and transferred and they are quite an essential and time saving part of the job.

  • Excerpt: "...for security issues are the Freecom range of Databar secure units. We have been provided with these 8GB models which is the unit I will be reviewing. Straight out of the box you will realise with this product that it feels much more heavier than other flash drives you may have come across, and that is coming from someone with a lot of experiences with the devices. Usually I can barely feel that the flash drive is in my pocket but with this you ...

  • Excerpt: This is a very good memory stick. It's good value for money, the build quality is really good and it's small and lightweight, making it a great option for people who need a truly portable drive. However, it is quiet slow and is sometimes glitchy, losing connection. The packaging is very clear, with lots of information and txt that is easy to read. It also protects the product really well. However, it can be really hard to open, with hard plastic that can cut into skin.

I think this is worth it considering the price!

  • Excerpt: I bought this about a year ago also, It has been fine to use, if a little slow both to read, write and eject! This can get annoying if you want to quickly move files from one computer to another, but if you aren't bothered by this then it's a great, VERY cheap, reliable thing. It seems to be very hardy too, how I throw it around, I am surprised it is working anymore, considering the price!

A great buy for almost any use

  • Excerpt: I bought this flash drive over a year ago and it has worked faultlessly ever since. It is very small and sleek looking, and because of its small profile, it will fit in any USB port and won't block access to others. It seems to operate quite quickly but I have tried to use it as part of Windows Vista "Ready Boost" (the flash drive is used as extra memory to speed up the system) but it failed the test so there will be faster flash drives out there.
