Sandisk Cruzer Blade 16 GB
Advantages: Large additional memory for a reasonable price.
At 1 1/2" total length this is about as short as you can get. This little device holds 16 gb of information, over 16 times what my first computer did. But the sweet part is that I can use it - all by myself :)
There is not an awful lot to say about this type of device, other than speed, quality, durability, and ease of use. This has earned 5 stars in all areas. The largest file I have moved with this is just under 5 gb - every photo we have. This took 33 minutes but time will vary depending on your pc, it would take much longer on my husbands laptop, and may have gone faster if I was not surfing the net while downloading. Most files we move are small enough the transfer is instant.
Quality - I have never noticed any deterioration of quality between the copied photos and the originals.
Durability - Although this has been dropped we have never subjected it to terrible abuse but it seems sturdy enough and well made. It has made a few trips in my husbands pockets - with keys, change and god only knows what else.
Ease of use - In all honesty, my 3 year old could use this, and I can use it without asking my 6 year old - don't laugh I really do have to ask him at times. It was so easy to use, you just plug it in, open a folder and drag your files into it.
I will note though, that this product from Amazon works brilliantly - we paid about £16 but it is now down to £12 odd. However, we bought two more Sandisk Cruzers from ebay ( although these were 2 gb models) and they had to be formatted before we could use them and lacked Sandisk info which came on the larger drive. I can't help but wonder if they could possibly have been pirated. They seem fine after formatting though, still for something as precious as all our family photos - I would buy from a reliable source.
Of course a smaller gb drive will work for most purposes, transferring files from home to work, even transferring a bit of music from one device to another. This was in fact far larger than my husband needed to carry the odd bit of music or files, but I have found a better use for it. The nice thing about this you can take all the really precious memories from your pc - and store them safely, either in a fireproof safe or better yet, another location. At roughly £12 this is a fair price to pay to keep your memories secure.
Summary: If I can use it, so can you.
