PNY Attaché 2 GB
Advantages: Portable, on the move, Case to protect the Flash drive
Disadvantages: None i can think of
People on the move who need to take data with them have quite a few options avaliable; from Floppy disk's to CDR's and Netbooks to Portable hard-drives. I am one of those people. Im a teenager studying and in most/nearly all schools have moved along with time and are using computers to teach and learn. There are many coursework assignments that need to be handed in and they expect students to have access to a PC and to have a Flash-drive of some sort. A few months ago I lost most of my coursework because I misplaced my Drive, because of this it put me back a long time on assignments and it was my top priorioty to buy another. So I gave my mother some cash to go out and buy me a decent sized Flash-drive that I could use for transporting data to and from college.
The PNY Attach'e has a decent sized memory, 2 GB is enough for someone like me who; Types up on Microsoft word, Makes powerpoint presentations, Calculates in excel and designs images in Photoshop. For someone who actually takes an IT Diploma for example, this may not be big enough so have a rough idea of what you expect your coursework to take up in memory. For someone who takes their business on the move then they should look for a MUCH bigger Flash drive maybe look into purchasing a portable hard-drive.
Once plugging it into your USB port there is no setup required as the computer should detect the device, if it doesnt there is probably a fault with the Flash drive or the devices are blocked via the control panel. I can save everything I need to the Attach'e in the right format, as long as you save and open in the same format, there will be no changes to the original and should work.
The design for the Attach'e is a swivel, allowing you to move the USB 360 degrees and the case can also protect the USB from damage. It can either go into the case so it is hidden, or can be swiveled 180 degrees so it is facing away from the case and into the Computer.
Overall i give it (4)****out of (5)***** stars
Summary: A good buy if your on the move and need to transport information
