Excerpt: I bought this flash drive back in around 2006 or 2007, I then got the 16GB one a few years later. Both flash drives still work like brand new, and I'm currently using the 4GB one as a readyboost drive. I removed the U3 program from the 4GB drive, and kept it on the 16GB one, since I only have any documents stored on the 16GB drive.
Great value with excellent quality and plenty of storage.

Excerpt: There's little in the way of deciding features for buying a USB flash drive, but as with many things, the greatness lies in the details, and detail is precisely where this tiny device provails. The build quality of the device is much better than others that you might come across, as opposed to a cheap plastic case which easily breaks, this one is a solid piece of metal which makes it very sturdy. The metal body is then coated by a removable rubber sleave with a lid.
Highly recommended, especially if you keep losing stuff

Excerpt: You are now really spoilt for choice for USB sticks as they are so common. My previous one didn't have enough room for all that I wanted (Was 1GB) so I saw this one at my local Morrison's store for a paltry £4. At a pound a GB this represented amazing value. Some might worry that because it's so cheap it might not be high quality but let me assure you that this is not the case. It's made by Sandisk which is a reputable brand that have been around for ages.
Excerpt: About 3 years ago I felt the need to purchase a new memory stick or as they are also known, a flash drive. I wanted it mainly for moving files between my old and new laptops and for the occasional time I might need to take a file with me somewhere. I wasn't expecting to use it everyday and I wasn't expecting to want to store a lot on there either, so I figured 2GB of memory should be enough.
Excerpt: This is another one from my usb flash drive 'collection' that I have acquired over the years, and perhaps one of the ones that I appear to use the most. Sandisk are normally renowned for making good quality memory based products, and hence you'll find their branding throughout items such as this usb flash drive (or pen drives or memory sticks or whatever else you want to call them), SD cards for cameras and portable games consoles etc, micro SD cards for phones etc etc.
Excerpt: Introduction Anyone who's started using computers in the last decade or so probably takes the concept of USB devices absolutely for granted – but for those of us who are a little bit further down the road to decrepitude, they remain an absolute marvel. After all, in the early days of digital cameras it would often take a minute to transfer your photo to the PC. And no, I haven't left out an "S" there; I really did mean a minute per photo .
Pros: Very reliable, quick, looks quite nice, inexpensive
