~ Who are they?~
PNY have been part of computing since their launch in 1985. Most brands have a bit of PNY application either already installed or have a piece of hardware as a complimentary accessory.; their data storage facilities for computer components are well documented. Originally called PNY Technologies Inc; they are better known as PNY. In the mid 1980's, data storage was pre-historic and all the products were 4ft cabinets and weighed a ton; compared with today's data storage products.
PNY can also boast at being at the cutting edge of storage devices and graphic card accessories, digital cameras and PDA devices. PNY is a continuing growing retail market brand for re-sellers and for the wholesaler market throughout the US, Asia and Europe.

~ Media ~
The media part of PNY is the most well-known of PNY repetoire. Visual grahic cards to data cards, it is the most used brand globally within computing and portable device terms; Applications include; Flash Media Solutions. This includes media packages such CompactFlashTM, SmartMediaTM, MultiMediaTM, and SecureDigitalTM .
~ USB Attache Flash Drive -8GB ~
USB - Stands for Universal Serial Bus - The USB is a universal port for all computer component/devices to be connected using a single interface socket. The port is an instant activated port when a new piece of hard-ware is connected so the computer will automatically recognize the hard-ware source; therefore no need for re-booting. The PNY Attache; is a clever device that spins within itselfas a means of protecting the PNY head-pin. No cap is required, as it clicks into place.
By just pulling out the centre and a swift rotation and a click, the key is ready to be used; along with a very High Speed data reaction speed, your up and running; now all ready to transfer data to and from PNY - Attache memory key.
~ PNY - 8GB of memory ~
The 8GB of memory is the amount of space that the USB Drive has available in storage on that particular drive. Please note that when the drive is full no further files will be able to be transferred and a prompt will appear claiming this. What I have found is that when transferring data across from PC to the key it certainly has a fast transfer rate and this alone could make you unaware of what size files you are transferring, and it is very deceptive, just be aware of that when storing amples of data files.
~ Checkout the testimonials ~
PNY attaché was especially designed for a youthful student market in mind - late night working followed by late nigh socializing. You can do practically anything to this key; it won't break; it is even water resistant as many testimonials claim. It certainly very durable, and if your prone to a few minor accidents yourself and often lose data in a fast spin wash, the attaché could well be a worth a dabble. There is no flashing lights to let you know it's nearly full of data; or bleeps when it is replaced; but at least your friends can drop it in your pint for a laugh and not even a flinch from yourself. The attaché is built like no other key I've test driven.
~ Price ~
The price for a 8GB PNY attaché Flash drive retail price is an affordable £32.99, I got mine from Dixons instead of www.dabs.com just to see what the monetary comparisons were like, I was impressed and the 8GB is a faster drive compared to other brands that do the 8GB of data storage. - 9/10 value for money.
~ Verdict ~
I will give this flash memory device 9/10. It is surprisingly a simple design for a clever contraption. The only thing that it lacks is style and a key ring piece. However, for functionality it ticks all the right boxes, and few extra ones as well.
Thank you for reading this review.
