Play.com 8GB Flash Drive
Disadvantages: not robust, a bit flimsy
We have a stack of flash drives in our house as we are forever losing them, breaking them or forgetting them. My husband uses his to store music on to play on the cd player in his company van. I use mine to store photos - particularly to transport them so I can show friends and family.
My husband purchased this 8GB flash drive for £10.99 on Amazon which is more expensive than my flash drive but still a reasonable price. He wanted 8GB as he likes dance music and those types of songs tend to be really long, ie. big files.
The flash drive is relatively small although bigger than most, and blue in colour. There are no other colour options. I have used this drive many times when I have misplaced my own, and I have always found it easy to use. It is plug and play, so there is no messing around with drivers or software. It has a little lid covering the metal end which you simply remove, then plug the drive in. It really is that easy! Transferring files is very easy and so far there has never been a problem, no corruption or missing files or anything like that. The downside is that the transfer of files is actually very slow, much slower than you would expect for the price! This is not a good thing, as when you're in a rush for work and want to change the music files on it, you really don't have time to sit there waiting for it to transfer.
The other downfall is that from the very start, the flash drive has not quite fitted properly - by that I mean that it is somewhat loose and easily knocked out. Whenever I have used it I have had to fiddle around with it and/or hold it in place. It's not ideal but it doesn't bother me that much as I don't use it often. I imagine if used daily it would be a nightmare.
At the end of the day it is a cheap memory stick that does the job. It's a bit slow and not very robust, but it doesn't cost the earth either, so what can you expect!
Summary: You get what you pay for!
