      Cheap, USB drive that transfers files very quickly

      I needed a memory stick to transfer some files for a friend. The total file sizes were around 12GB,I didn't have a large enough stick available and I needed it on the day because she was due to fly out to Australia at silly o'clock the next morning. This sounds dramatic but it is true!

      The timing issue meant that I would not be able to order one online, even with next day delivery (side issue, it was a Sunday this happened on). I popped into Tesco and the 16GB memory stock they sold was 40 odd pounds, there was no way I would pay that sort of money for one, so I go to the Maplin next door looking to buy one of those cheap, slow memory sticks or two 8GB ones if needs be.

      First off, I was surprised by the cost. For less than a tenner, I was able to buy this memory stick. The cashier was surprised by the cost and value herself when she put it through the till and promptly put one aside for herself (I'm sure she paid for it later).

      On returning home, I started the file transfers, 10 or so videos and a load of large, high quality holiday photos. Then I am surprised again. The files were transferring at a fantastic speed, Windows 7 reported constant speeds of 20MB/s on USB 2. This was faster than the SanDisk memory stick I purchased at a much higher price, almost twice as fast in fact. I did not expect something like this from a memory stick so cheap. Other brands usually state they have fast transfer speeds of so and so, but they come at a cost, this one made no claims and smashes the ball out of the park.

      The memory stick is a dark, translucent, smoky black colour with simple printed Intenso name on its plastic body. It has a cap that arguably could be lost quite easily (I still have it), a small loop hole for a strap if you wanted and a red LED light for when it is plugged in and transferring files.

      This is a great value memory stick, with a capacity that is good in the current climate, that will change as time goes on, and a fast transfer rate for speedy results. A few months down the line, I recovered the stick from my friend when I visited her on holiday. I 'needed' a stick to backup my photos I told her, now I have it as my day to day memory stick back home.
