Being a media, film and IT student and a regular computer nerd shall we say i know the importance of backing up files, but also how annoying it is to send large files over the internet via email. Well am glad to say thank you that we have Flash Drives and memory sticks. Now if you have ever gone to buy one before there is an endless amount of different styles, colours, sizes and manufacturers. I myself have had experience with many different memory sticks and used them for a variety of different uses.
I needed a new memory stick, of quite a large decent size to store video files and audio files for my courses. As well as other various documents such as doc files and powerpoint files.
I went down to my local computer base store, and had a look around to see what they had. I noticed the Sandisk Cruzer Slice 8GB. I was immediately attracted to the sleek, modern design of the memory stick and then even more by the 8GB size and finally the £13.00 price tag. I snapped it up straight away, after using other Sandisk storage devices before so i had high hopes for this device.
The drive comes in a plastic protection packaging to avoid it from any damage. Also included in the box is the manufacturers recommended system configuration for use with the flash drive.
I've been using this for around 4 months now, transferring various video files and audio files and also backing up my course paperwork on it. I've tested this drive on Windows server 2000, Windows XP Home, Vista and 7 and i have no problems. Also even with the huge amount of data transfers i have still not experienced any problems with it. A few times the drive has been unexpectedly pulled out or not disconnected properly and i have also kept this in my pocket on hot days, and when I've been messing around with friends and there has still be no data loss or corruption. Which is amazing!!
Finally the drive is as advertised 8GB in storage space, with a high speed USB 2.0 connection for fast transfer rates, I've been getting around 512Kb/s transfer rate. It also uses a simple plug & play feature so within seconds of inserting the drive into your USB port this drive will have installed its self, so there is no fuss or extra software needed for you to install.
For the price of £13.00 i feel this is an amazing price and brilliant value for money. The 8GB size is perfect for students or just for people who want to back up their most important data. The drive is very durable and long lasting and boasts a sleek design and unisex black coloured enclosure. Making this a good memory stick for any gender or age.
I highly recommend this drive to anyone looking for a memory stick to use to back up their most important files and documents. With a sleek modern design, and unisex appeal this is perfect for all ages and genders and with a £13.00 price tag, you cant help but snap one of these drives up.
Summary: An amazing flash drive for an unbeatable price!! You can't go wrong! Highly recommended!!
