“ Imation Clip Flash Drive - USB flash drive - 4 GB - Hi-Speed USB „
I really like this USB stick with its clip attached because it means that for once in my life, I may be able to remember where I left my flash drive! I have lost a number of these; by always leaving them in a safe place! When I saw the clip flash drive I just knew I had to have one!
==Price and availability==
I bought this flash drive from Staples and I paid £9.99. You can buy cheaper flash drives but I like the fact I am familiar with the brand and I like the design.
The flash drive is really rubbery and seems to be much more robustly designed than other sticks. It is really good quality and the case that it is attached in is even waterproof. There is a detachable karabiner clip that means you can attach your drive to your bag or purse and have it with you at all times. You use your thump to slide open the clip, it is so easy you can do it with one hand. It looks good and now I always know where it is; as long as I remember where my bag is!
The flash drive has 4 GB of storage which is enough for me as this drive is reserved for transporting my work from work to home. You can add password protection to the drive which is a great safety net in case it happens to fall into the wrong hands.
You do not need any software or anything to work with the flash drive; it is literally plug in and play. Once you insert the flash drive (due to the size, as it is quite small it is good at slipping into the most awkwardly positioned USB ports) the computer will recognise the drive and to transfer data and files, all you need to do is drag and drop. I have used the drive to hold music and play with my car stereo; this went swimmingly and I have not experienced any problems!
I'm really happy with this item, it certainly does the job and I love the fact it comes with a clip. I'm a complete sucker for novelty obviously. A final plus point to the flash drive is a 5 year warranty.
