If you ever put your 16 gig flash drive in the washing machine and proceed to put said flash drive on a 40 degree wash for two hours like I did..... You will find suprisingly it works fine afterwards :D.... aaaannndd keeps all data retention with no corruption...

Thank god!

 To those complaining of reduced size...

When Windows/Mac measures a disk, it uses 1024 bytes per kB, 1024 kB per MB, 1024 MB per GB.

In the specs for storage, 1000 is always used.

So a 1GB file = 1,073,741,824 bytes
But a 1GB pen = 1,000,000,000 bytes

So 1GB of storage actually fits 0.93GB of data.
When you add in the file system too, then its reduced even more

So 16GB storage (16 GB) fits 14.901 GB of data.

I think Linux and some Windows apps use kiB, MiB, GiB to indicate when 1024 is used, to avoid this confusion.

 Better than the competition..AND cheaper

I can't see how anyone can complain about this product, it isn't bullet-proof but it is as hardy as any other normal flash drive. That is, of course, not inclusive of the ones that are marketed as being ultra-durable etc. I had to sigh when I saw people moaning that it only gives 14.9GB of space...please check up on what a "byte" is and why 1x10^9 of them is technically a "Giga" of them, but your computer uses the binary definition, i.e. 1024 bytes = 1MB etc

Anyway, this product rocks! Worth every penny :)

P.S. Also, if you wish to use it on PS3s, dvd players etc they usually only accept the FAT32 file system that the stick comes formatted in. However the file size limit is then 4GB. NTFS frees up the file size restriction but loses the compatibility with random devices

 A Genuine low price USB Flash Drive
