First things first - the price cannot be beaten, no matter where you look on the net, no one can match this price. So, if your looking for a large size flash storage device, your search should stop here!
Please don't buy from the worlds largest auction house, as your not guaranteed that the drive you buy will last 12 days, never mind 12 months. The drives that Play.com sell are the real deal and will last a lifetime theoretically, as flash drive technology is almost bullet proof.
When choosing a drive, please pay particular attention to the read/write speeds, as these will be a good indication as to how long you'll be standing arouns waiting for that large GB file to transfer into the drive or out of the drive. To be honest, the drives that are sold as Play.com drives are fairly good at both read and write, they are not the fastest, but they certainly are not the slowest either!
I have brought three of these in the last 12 months and all work perfectly well, they are suited to USB 2.0 boards better then USB 1.0, but then again, not too many computers these days use 1.0 (thank god). All in all a sound drive, if you want mega fast read and write, buy a Buffalo at quadruple the price, if you want sound advice, buy a "Play" drive and thank me as you've just saved yourself £30!
