Summary: I transferred all my files to this device last month. Today I got an error message and can't access any of the data. I will take it somewhere to try to recover what I can. Given the amount of data that was on it, I'd be willing to pay a lot to get it back. I have learned to back up everything--too late maybe. I've had many flash drives over the years that have been used and abused and this was the first one to stop working.
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. And cue this review, almost 2 years after buying these life-saving devices!
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 case.
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. I'd probably class this as my personal memory stick, it's the one I'll use if I have photos or documents from one laptop to another or from the PC to the laptop.
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. As with all modern memory sticks, all the installation software is contained in the memory, allowing you to use them on any computer you plug them into.
Excerpt: HP USB Flash Drive I needed something to transfer from computer to computer easily, so went out and bought this HP Flash Drive for about £6.50 on Amazon. I have seen it priced on both Amazon and other sites since between £6.50 and £10.00. The flash drive is a good looking little thing in a pale blue colour and slots directly into your USB slot. It is extremely light and not as durable as some flash drives around so care is certainly needed with this stick.
Excerpt: Recently the place at which I work reissued all the current Flash Drives in the company. Reluctantly I had to part with my trusty flash drive of two years and take on board on a HP USB V13dw Flash Drives. The reasons were multifold, this was a bigger storage disc than the previous 2gb, they are considered safer (which is essential to the uses they receive at work) and they were bought in bulk with a deal with the manufacturer thus saving on costs.
Excerpt: The HP USB Flash Drive V135w 4 GB is a really handy bit of kit. I have been doing my teacher training at University this year and this flash drive has been perfect for carrying around my coursework and classroom material. The fact that it has 4GB of space means that if I am using video clips or sound files in my lessons, I can easily fit them onto this handy little stick.
Excerpt: I bought this HP USB Flash Drive V135w from Tesco for £9.99 when I bought my netbook there. I knew I'd need a little something to help store my music files and photos on, as netbooks always have very small internal storage capacities. Not sure why really when you consider that this device is tiny and could easily come pre-installed in a netbook... Guess it's a cost-cutting exercise in truth! This is a really small device which comes in metallic blue.
Excerpt: I bought my HP Flash Drive from a local retailer and was originally very happy with it. First of all, it looks a lot cooler than most other flash drives - it is actually similar in appearance to one of the more recent generations of iPod shuffle (well the back of one, anyway) as it is slim and has a metal casing - it is a shame that the bit you can use to clip it to your keys is not also metal.
