Advantages: Fast, reliable, well designed
Disadvantages: none for me
I bought this Bytestor flash drive around 7 months ago to replace an 8GB memory stick which had become rather worn and unreliable. I chose Bytestor due to good reviews and opted for the pink colour as I thought it would be easier to notice in my bag. A USB flash drive is a handy and efficient little device for storing and transporting all manner of files. I often need to transfer documents and images from one computer to another and find this the quickest and easiest way of doing so.
Measuring approximately 7 cm long and 2.5 cm wide this memory stick is made of tough transparent plastic in a vivid pink colour. It feels sturdy and in my view is nicely designed with curved edges and matt silver strips which run along either side and are formed into a handy loop at each end. As it is so small a flat and slightly concave surface both top and bottom makes it easy to hold onto and grasp when pulling off the cap.
After inserting the flash drive into a USB port I can access files instantly and move by the drag and drop method. It is very straightforward, even for me. I store a large amount of back-up files, photos, videos and music on the flash drive and then regularly create folders for transporting data to different computers. Deleting and adding take very little time. With a 16 GB storage capacity, I doubt I will ever use absolutely all the space but it's good to know it is there. You can see how much space has been used and is still available in properties and from there you can also run defragmentation and error checking programmes.
The cap fits very securely and snaps shut with a satisfying sound, I really couldn't imagine the cap becoming loose. The memory stick is often in my handbag jumbling around with everything else in there and yet there are no scratches or dents on it, it really is quite tough. The bright pink colour makes spotting the flash drive in my bag easier and I've attached a soft beaded keyring to one of the loops so I can also feel my way to identifying it quickly.
A very handy, well designed flash drive which works efficiently and I feel confident using. The Bytestor comes in other colours; dark blue, light blue and red. This one is currently available from Amazon for £9.99 which I think is good value for money.
