  Corrupt File!

| | See all Sillyoldsole's reviews (4)

I guess i was one of the unlucky ones as most people who have brought one has said how great it is, but every time i tried to use it, it kept corrupting the files! I wanted this flash drive to save my music on so i can easily plug my tunes into my PS3 or Xbox and it wouldn't play any of the songs! I landed up losing a lot of my music! I wouldn't recommend this flash drive as it don't seem to transfer properly.

  Does not work!

Originally wanted to use it for playing music in my car. Loaded music and the Sony player in my Ford would not recognise it (other USB flash drives work ok). Then decide to use for storing documents data, worked fine for 24 hours then neither my desktop nor laptop would recognise it either. Very flimsy with a plastic USB connection. Do not want to return item with my (now unreadable) data on.

  Can't believe the price/size/capacity

This is great value, 8GB might not seem like a lot of storage space nowadays but for the price and the size of the USB stick you can't go wrong, unless you drop it somewhere, then you go wrong... seriously this thing is tiny, keep it tied to something. Good price, Good stick.

  excellent

Bought this just to hold music to transfer between PC's/ Consoles etc.. brilliant 8gb holds quite a few tracks and works fast. Very slim & small design - actually looks better in real life than on the picture!
Only thing that annoyed me is the price keeps going up and down, haha!!

  Awesome Buy! Highly Recommend!

Hi,
I already have two of these from keeping copies of my websites and other scripts etc I need to keep with me at all times to access on any PC, and I think they are so great, I'm just about to order another two for some future projects I have lined up :)

Thanks,
Nathaniel

P.S. A++++++++ Highly recommend buying as these are not only great value at under 10 pounds (5 atm on Monday offer) but they are highly reliable, fast and actually have almost the full 8GB of free space unlike a lot of USB sticks which you lose a lot of space on.

I was wondering why it was so cheap, I have had two of these flash sticks and both of them have corrupted and lost data every time. I plug it in the front of my computer, it fails at least 3 times before its recognised, it does the same on my 2 laptops and my other desktop. Very poorly made. Copying data is a nightmare! "location is not available!" 3 out of 5 times this appears. AVOID!

  slow

| | See all kezstone's reviews (3)

yes it's tiny and yes it's cute but omg the transfer rate is the slowest i've ever experienced since the days of atari and floopy disk (in fact i think that was faster). i loaded a 2.2gb avi file onto it and it took 8 mins! even the smallest of file transfers takes ages.
if you have all the time in the world and need a cheap stick then this will represent good value but i think even the most patient person will find them self screaming at this annoying little stick!
do a quick google and you'll see other honest reviews with people warning you not to buy this thing. AVOID.

  Good value for money

A bit worried as for the negative comments about speed. I clocked 4.7MB/s Write and 19-20MB/s in read both with original FAT32 and with ext2fs (similar values for 1GB, 100MB, 10MB and 1MB files; filled up the 8GB with the three biggest sizes). Now made two equal partitions (FAT32 for win and ext2 for me :) ). Installed Lubuntu on FAT32 as LiveCD, works quite well.
