Sony Micro Vault Ultra Mini 8 GB
Advantages: Quick, Easy to use, Value, reliable
Disadvantages: None spring to mind
I bought this a while back when the price was much higher, I think I paid around £38 for it, maybe more though. So far I have been very happy with my purchase and would buy again for sure!
The Sony flash drive is an excellent thing to have, as you have 8GB of data, a considerable amount at your finger tips, just plug in and away you go. This drive has a USB slider mechanism which means you use the bar on the side and slide away for the USB to come out, and slide back for the USB to go back in, this is a great way of protecting the parts which can be broken most easily, I think it is good to have this feature, as you can't really break the metal USB connection because it is protected most of the time.
The Sony flash drives offers a great amount of storage space, this particular one is 8 GB which is around 8192 MB which is around 2000 songs, this is a great amount to be able to carry around with you.
Like I said above I have had this drive for a while now, and it has served me well, whether it be from taking files to school, or taking it to the library when I have ran out of ink, or even transferring files from one computer to another this is the perfect flash drive, as it is very fast on both PC and Mac, which is great if you use either. It is sturdy, and reliable, there is a few scratches on this due to general wear and tear, also being in the pocket with keys wouldn't help it much.
This Sony flash drive consists of USB 2.0 the very latest in USB technology, However, I understand that USB 3.0 is being tested, the new generation of data transfer.
Like most things, it does come down through time, but I don't think that this flash drive will become much cheaper than £16.99 which it is currently available on Amazon for, that is surprisingly cheap for such a well know and reputable brand like Sony!
Overall Opinion -
I have used this through my time as a student to take to and from school for projects, essays etc etc, this has been an excellent device for doing so, and is great for transferring media between computers.
I would recommend this flash drive to friends, and family because I have had such a pleasant experience with this device, it is reliable and easy to use, it pops up with a few seconds on being plugged into the computer
Thanks for reading! I hope this has been of interest to you and has helped assist you in your decision.
Summary: Excellent device, easy to use, very happy
