      Disadvantages

      Great little flash drive, yet to be faulted

      I bought this device around 4 years ago at a cost of just over £12. This is probably expensive these days as the cost of flash drives has decreased significantly over the past number of years. I was not long in starting uni and I was extremely worried about losing all my data if my hard drive where to fail on my laptop. I had been using DVDs to backup my data but this had become time consuming and I could only store 4.7GB of data onto a single DVD. It was easy to use, simply plugged it in and the laptop recognised it. USB 2.0 has been the standard for USB these days, although I have heard of USB 3.0 now.

      With a capacity of 8GB, this flash drive was enough to meet my needs. It served me well over my university years and allowed me to complete more regular backups. Thankfully I have yet to need it for a backup. As the years have progressed I have accumulated more data so I will need to purchase one with more storage space and this flash drive will become used for everyday use.

      I cannot comment on how well it stands up to everyday life as it is kept indoors and safe. Should I use it more regularly I will update this review to reflect this. It has a sleek black design which is simple and no frills. The cap still clicks on and off and remains firmly in place. It has lasted the test of time and has yet to fail me so I have nothing bad to say against this product.
