  Gigabytes Vs Gibibytes (no i've not made that name up)

| | See all Harrisnford's reviews (1)

Just to clean up some confusion... well probably not actually., (will probably confuse you more) a Gigabyte is what computers read and start from kilobytes etc. All storage is measured in Gidibytes. the difference being, one gigabytes in 1024megabytes a Gidibyte is 1000 mb.. and so on. Hence the size will always be smaller when read by a computer add the amount of space need for the masterboot record etc and you don't get any where near what you expect in Gigabytes... but none of the companies explain this so most people don't know the difference.. Wikipedia it if your interested.

  29.9gb but may take a lifetime to fill it - very sloooooow!

Just received this item *finally* after the first package arrived with nothing inside. Good size for the money 29.9gb free FAT32 on Windows7 after a quick format. Unfortunately the speed is terrible, managing about 4.2 MB per second, which is actually a 1 MB slower than I can download files from the Internet. I have a number of Play.com 4gb memory sticks and even an 8gb and speeds have always been acceptable, this one however isn't. It is obviously made on a shoe string budget to give the huge size for your money. The lack of a key loop just adds to the frustration of the device. Would recommend a better branded product at this size, or one of the 16gb with readyboast enabled.

  Excellent

Bought for the cheapness and size.
Only downfall is that there is no loop to add a string- only a minor issue but thought i would mention it. Other than that, I have no complaints. Great value for money

  not bad

for the price its not to bad, 14mb/s read but only 4.2mb/s write I have other sticks which are far faster, but then again far dearer, I see from other reviews people are reporting different read and write speeds, although it does state up to 23mb/s read 8mb/s write, so I suppose its just your luck if you get a faster one,

  Not as fast as expected and has no indicator

This penstick is a great price for a 32GB stick and is definitely faster than the old smaller drive that it is replacing.
Only used it for a few days so far. When transferring a single large zip file, it took longer than I had expected (giving about 3.5MB per second) which is significantly less than I had expected).
The size of the device is great (not too big and not too small).
One annoyance I have is that there is no drive indicator light on this device. One review I had read stated that it had - so either this is a faulty device or the device has changed since that review was written.
So basically: Slower than expected; no indicator light; cheap for such a high capacity drive.

  Fantastic flash drive and excellent price!

This is a great flash drive with huge capacity for a reasonable price! I've tested it and it writes at 12.5MB/s which is fantastic! I bought some "branded" flash drives from ebay and they were all fake (writing speeds 2-3MB/s....).
For 17.99 this is an amazing deal.

  Does the job, cheaply too :-)

| | See all CDRichards's reviews (1)

Bought this a long time ago and I am about to buy another one as my old man has nicked mine. It's cheap and cheerful so don't expect fancy frills or whistles, it stores data and that's what they're for. Happy days.

  Cheap and awkward

I wish Ihad not wasted my money. it has no ring to carry it on a lanyard and there is a serious risk of losing it as I travel a lot. Otherwise it is a good solid piece of kit. But without a ring to carry it almost useless.
