  I think its water proof???

| | See all Unrelated's reviews (1)

Had this for a long time but only used it for about 2 weeks before I lost it. I recently found it attached to a buttoned up shirt pocket, I presumed it wouldn't work due to it being washed multiple times and even dry cleaned at least twice. I thought I might as well try and get my stuff off it and after plugging it into my computer found that this awesome little gadget appears to be waterproof. It would have gotten 5 stars but it seems a bit to small and therefore easily lost.

  Smart and Compact

Wonderfully smart and compact little device. The clip on the back will come in handy. Very impressed with the 16gb space considering the physical size of this thing.

took 10 mins to transfer 5gb of data! High speed it says??? Yes it's strong but has no protection on the end!

Now 9 moths old, mine has developed a greater and greater tendency to require to be a specific angle in order to stay connected in any USB port. No signs of damage. Going to try and get it replaced under warranty. Hopefully an isolated case... In other respects it's been fine.

  These are great

These look great and the photo of the back of this does not do it justice.
It's only as wide as the usb port itself.

P.S. I did not receive the paper clip with my order - but the clip on the back of the pen drive actually doubles up as one, so wasn't too disappointed.

  speed test and size

you can write to the stick at ten and back to comp at around twenty three.its so small can stack 2 above each other in a laptop and will fit in the pocket bit of a wallet with ease .For the price around nine its good but if you need more speed look for the usb3 usb flash drive which treble all the figures given here.

  good but surprisingly small.

Now I must ensure that I start off by saying that this is just my personal experience of the item, however this may happen to someone else, which I would never wish upon anyone...
I'll start off with the good Points:
The stick looks really cool, impressing everyone who sees it, it also carries a lot of data for the price. It's very small and easy to carry around- connected to my key in my case. Overall, neat and tidy.
However, I soon found problems, which at first seemed OK.
The memory stick became very hit and miss. It would work on some ports and not in others, often requiring fiddling with it, sometimes to no avail. This was caused by its size. It was soooo small that it was hard to get in correctly, sometimes it will just move around in the port... Mind the innuendo....
This became very annoying when it would not fit into my home computer... Unfortunately this became worse and worse as time progressed...
I also found that whenever the stick was in for more than about 2 minutes, it starts to get hot. Not insanely cannot touch hot, just quite warm and could easily surprise you or if near your leg in a laptop, start to almost burn your leg...

The final straw happened today when the stick appeared to give up. It worked in the morning for a presentation I was giving, then by the afternoon it became unreadable. It turns out it had changed back to the RAW format, which basically made it un-readable by a computer. It was asking me to format it, however I have very important A-Level work that had been completed recently and (very stupidly) hadn't been backed up yet.
As luck would have it, after the whole day moaning around at the loss of many, many hours of work, I came across a useful free version of a programme allowing me to extract 1GB of the most important data, however this was sheer luck, my local computer shop basically told me it would be impossible...
Sorry about the rant like review I have posted, however I feel buyers should be made aware of the problem I faced...
