Play.com 8GB Flash Drive
Advantages: cheap, reasonable amount of storage, does what its designed to do.
Disadvantages: not unattractive casing, just feels cheap.
Right lets get the obvious out of the way, it is a flash drive from PLAY.com with a storage capacity of 8gb for storing various pieces of data whether that be media or documents.
As far as this product goes, it looks alright, is made from cheap clear blue plastic with a silver plastic ridge, and obviously the PLAY.com logo on the top. This is appart from the logo identical to various other flash drives available such as the one by integral. But lets be honest it looks reasonable enough and you dont usually have a flash drive as a fashion accessary.
The storage capacity itself at 8gb is reasonable enough for transportation of media files and various other documents, of course like everyone else i would like more memory but you need to remember what it is your buying and the function you are going to be using it for. E.g. I use mine for the transportation of coursework and presentations between home and university. if i was after anything more then i would use my Iomega 500gb portable hard drive. so lets be real it does what its designed for.
With regards to the writing speed of the device (how quickly files can be "put" onto it) without going into technicals that arn't going to mean much, in short it is quick enough and effective enough that you are not going to be waiting around at the end of the day and stalled to go home. So all good there!
Then finally the price you can pick these up relatively cheap from PLAY.com where the last time i checked was £6.99, which is reasonable enough and you would be paying around the same region if not more if you shopped around.
On now another final note as i have just remembered, the data quality when opened up off the flash drive, and in terms of corruption is minimal if at all, i've never personally experienced any problems of that sort, but im sure with all pieces of technology someone will have had this issue before, but from me there were no problems and couldnt create some if i wanted to.
Summary: not for the fashion fussy, but its a great product, cheap, reliable and does what its meant to do!
