This memory stick is perfect if you need to be saving word documents or powerpoints onto the flash drive for work or school purposes, as word documents are only every a few hundred KB which means you could fit many on this memory card also this product is cheap and affordable. It also transfers the files quickly and it looks stylish, it is a silver colour and has a lid which covers the usb head so it doesn't get damaged or dusty.
However nowadays 16 MB just simply isn't enough, if you're using it for other purposes rather than word documents then this isn't for you, 16 MB is about 4 songs, no where near enough for any videos or programs.
The good news is that, nowadays a 16MB memory stick is very uncommon and you can now get flash drives with lots of memory for very affordable prices, for example I recently purchased a Kingston 8GB flash drive for £8 on ebay, brand new aswell.
I would suggest, getting a memory stick with more memory. You can get 1GB flash drives for about a quid nowadays and that can store way more than 16MB.
Hope this has helped.
This Christmas I was given a Kingston Data Traveler with 256MB of memory and it has helped me so much, especially with my uni work. I used to have to send my work as an attachment in an email so that I could access it on the university computers, i'm sure Ill agree this is just HASSLE...thats not needed! Floppy disks are so last century these days and were big and bulky and easily broke. These, more commonly called memory sticks plug straight into the back (front on some computers) of your computer in the USB port. This allows you to save data to your memory stick and access it on any other computer, very convenient! Not only that, you can also back up important data onto the stick with no trouble at all. There is alot of data on these sticks and you can hold many files on it. However, if you have alot of data that you need to save, you can easily erase the less important or data that is not needed anymore. Kingston have made this stick with varying memory capacity, and obviously varying prices. The one I have, 256MB costs around £9. The cheapest of the group is the 128MB and costs about £7.
Remember the days when you had to carry all those floppy disks round with you, just for a few documents, well forget it. Kingston have a 2GB memory stick which only costs £37, very reasonable for something that you should only need one of and will last a life time...well until a new invention comes out!
They all come with a cap to put on the end that goes into the USB port so that it does not get damaged..also make sure you put it in the port the right way to prevent damage. Look after this product and you will realise the benefit, have your files downloaded within seconds and take it literally anywhere!
