Summary: I needed a flash drive for watching MP4 videos on our television using a PS3. This is just perfect. Write speed is supposed to be 11mb/s and it comes pretty close to that on my desktop. It was recognized quickly with our PS3. The pros and cons of this of this drive are actually the same features.
Summary: The way it retracts feels very smooth and sturdy. Its not spring loaded. I've had spring loaded ones that felt cheap and invariably they end up breaking and then they are no longer able to retract. I do not foresee that happening with this drive.
Pros: 1. Extremely compact and portable, i barely notice it when dangling from my key chain. (apprx. 1.3in. x 5/8in. x 3/16in.) 2. Inexpensive. ($8 as of 4/13/2011) 3. Good capacity (4GB), especially when considering how small and inexpensive it is. 4. Fast enough. It seems to be as fast or faster than...
Cons: None. I consider the design of this drive to be the current pinnacle to which all other flash drives should aim in terms of functionality, simplicity, and convenience. Seriously, its that awesome.
Pros: Compact, a great price, made by HP, it's a cool shade of blue that looks to be a brushed metal. Comes with a small lanyard with a clip. As for the speed, if it is the same as others why say its slow?
Excerpt: As a student and a trainee teacher I have found that one of my most valuable possessions is a USB pen. In my third year this became vital as I had a dissertation to write, and wanted to make sure I had it backed up in several places. Cue me popping into work at Currys and selecting two 4GB USB pens.
Excerpt: This is one of my favourite memory sticks, I have about five different ones that I use for a variety of storage purposes. This is the one I use for a lot of work files and the like for data that I want to carry around and is likely that it will be stored in either my bag or a pocket in my laptop...
Excerpt: Everyone loves HP, so when I received one of their memory sticks I was happy (and surprised, I had no idea HP made memory sticks). This is the 4gb version which is plenty big enough for what I use it for.
Excerpt: I recently brought a new HP laptop to replace my very slow and broken old laptop and with it I got a free HP V13db Flash Drive. Being a student my USB stick is stuck with me and has to endure vigorous use, therefore a reliable and durable memory stick is essential.
