Since Sandisk are one of the leading manufacturers when it comes to flash memory i think that 8 pounds for 8Gb is excellent, yeah its small and its made of plastic, but thats why its cheap, its entry level but with the typical Sandisk performance and since it is only a flash drive how could making it any other way make it better, you use it for transferring files not to defend the universe.
always have used Sandisk and always will since not once has an item of theirs let me down
if just needing a little something to move files from place to place then this is a good cheap choice.
obviously yes its made out of plastic so don't be rough with it.
It is a very small memory stick so watch where you put it.
overall a great simple memory stick
