Memory 2 Go - 2 GB Flash drive
I can't remember how I got this memory stick, I think I might have borrowed it from someone and then didn't return it (I know terrible!!). It has now been in my possession for quite a while and it has had a rather busy life. As I have mentioned in previous reviews I was a student for quite a long time as well as then progressing to working within the university as a researcher, during that time memory sticks were an absolute necessity to the job. Nowadays if you have to move data about quick and efficiently then there really isn't any better way to do this than using one of these little USB memory drives.
Personally something I look for in a memory stick is a solid casing that won't be easily damaged. I do look after these USB drives but I do tend to throw them in bags, squash them in pockets and sit on them with alarming regularity. This memory drive by Memory2Go has lived to tell the tale through a lot of wear and tear and usage. It doesn't look as pristine as it began its life but it does still look smart enough to be seen with.
I also like the fact that this has no lid to lose, because I use a lot of these memory sticks I do find it annoying when they come with lids that are permanently attached. I take the lid off to use it, then get distracted and forget all about it when I remove the memory stick with the data as I go about my daily business. With this cap less design it is one less thing to worry about.
Furthermore, if I was being very picky it would have been nice to have been able to attach this to a key ring or strap. However, it is nice and small so it does easily fit in most pockets.
This memory sticks works really well and like most of all of these USB flash drives you don't need any expert IT knowledge to use it, just plug it in, transfer the files that you want, remove it and off you go with your data in hand. I have also never had any problem with data corrupting or not storing properly, this has always been reliable.
At Amazon you can currently buy this for the bargain basement price of £4.28 excluding postage and packaging (a further £1.99).
I tend not to buy memory sticks that are under 4GB these days, as I am always amazed at how quickly I eat up all that space. However, if you were after a cheap and reliable memory stick with 2GB of memory then by all means I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this one.
Summary: Average but does what you want from it
