Sandisk Cruzer Fleur 1 GB
I have had this USB memory stick for a while now, it was a Christmas stocking filler present from my dad, at the time I received it I loved it. It was the first USB flash drive that I owned that didn't look like the generic black/grey ones that are so common.
I am certain that when my dad initially bought this it cost a lot more, but you can currently buy this for a very reasonable £4.99 from Amazon.
There is definitely a lot going on in the look of this flash drive. It has a pink top to protect the USB connecter and a white body with a pink floral pattern, as well as having a large circular hole at the bottom to enable you to connect this to a key ring, or a neck strap, etc.
I really liked this memory stick and although I don't regularly use it these days, preferring flash drives that have more space, I would still recommend this one. However, I think I liked this so much because my dad gave it to me. I do think that this would make a great first USB flash drive for a younger teenage girl, it is pink, patterned and a bit more fun and funky than most available.
This memory sticks works really well and like most of all of these USB flash drives that I own you don't need any expert IT knowledge to use it, just plug it in, transfer the files that you want, remove it and then off you go with your data in hand. I have also never had any problem with data corrupting or not storing properly, this has always been reliable.
I tend not to buy too many memory sticks that are under 4GB these days, as I am always amazed at how quickly I eat up all that space. However, if you were after a reliable memory stick with only 1GB (although practically there will be less space available to use) of memory then by all means I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this one.
This only gets a three star rating for me. I prefer quite a few of my other memory sticks over this one. Personally, I think that this is more suited to younger teenage girls and I don't often take this with me, I don't mind a bit of pink but this is a very girlie USB memory stick.
The Sandisk Cruzer Fleur memory stick is a very good piece of hardware. Personally I have never found that I have needed more than 1GB of storage space. Furthermore, as this hardware comes with software in the form of a button that appears on the desktop when in use and, when clicked on, uploads a small screen, the files are very easy to manage.
As far as appearance is concerned, this memory stick is both stylish and functional. The colours are attractive and the design of flowers is elegant. I like the detail of the built in protector that mimicks the design beneath it. The protector is also very useful as it prevents the loss of the cap, as I found often happened with my previous memory stick. Having a colourful memory stick is very useful, which was made particularly evident to me when I used my memory stick in my studies at school.
