Memory is so so cheap these days isnt it... 16gb for a fiver is fantastic.

I remember my first PC was the dogs danglers but back then it only had a 2gb hard drive and cost £850 lol

Good Price. I paid £11 for two last month delivered from EBay!
#3
£6.02 for a gold one, if that's your thing :) That one isn't an add on item either so you can have it delivered free with no minimum spend.

hot, you can get a nice compact, metal drive rather than a massive lump of cheap plastic tat for a penny less!

As I said, this is in my mp3 plug in the car. USB 2 works fine and it looks smart. That USB 3 stick would look hideous in the car

The main reason people buy USB's are for storage and transfer of files...not for it to look fashionable or whatever.

The buyer, read the reviews of the product you submitted.

The read and write speeds are shocking for usb 3.0

Great stick got 2 already fantastic build quality...

Got some more of these before Christmas , with the Mastercard £5 Off £10 spend, so were £2.50 each. If you want a USB 3.0 version of these check out Integral Fusion USB, link below. I prefer the size of these though, you don't lose them as easily.

The speed of the ones I got recently seem faster than previous ones I bought, so they may have upgraded the internals, as they aren't known as the fastest USB drives, more the most robust.

Only buy these if you need them, its not a great offer, they have been in the region of £5 for months and months.

These are the same materials, smaller and faster, USB 3.0, but the keyring is a bit small compared to the Kingston SE9 and twice the price.

I paid £92 from eBay usa for a 512mb SD card for my first phone with full size sd card. Orange SPV. About 15 years ago.

It was £100+ on eBay UK. Lol

I have a couple of these and they are perfect. Not ugly looking to keep permanently in devices.

All these fools linking the USB 3 ones can you not read folks replies?

I've a fair few of the DataTraveler drives, but only the metal ones as shown here. They're outstanding for when you simply don't give a **** over speed.
They're durable, they are still plenty fast enough to play media via your TV's USB port.

Had a 32gb one on my car keys for a couple years now and it works great still, unlike a plastic one which would either snap off or get the casing snapped.

I've been using flash drives for well over a decade now and these are by far the best I've used - period.
#20
Hmm, I might need to get this. The older systems I work on are not USB 3.0 compatible unfortunately, and this USB seems to work nicely in the past.
#21
Nice find OP thanks, heat added
#22
I find it very slow at 2.8 MB/s to write a 500 MB file but the five year warranty sweetens it for me. Very nice looking too.
#23
S.......L.......O.......W write speeds
Not even worth £5

that's only one wayof looking at it.
Many devices don't even support USB 3..,and many people will only occasionally copy files while they need more durable stick to carry,put in and out repeatetly ..this one is made from metal,and is compact.way better build quality than that long plastic one.I have a 8 GB model and dozens of different standard ones and can see the advantage..
The USB 3 alobe is not the deciding factor unlike what you think.

These things are built to last, I've had one on my main keyring for a good few years and whilst it's polished from all the wear and tear, it still works.

How well does a USB3 95MB/s stick perform when it's smashed to bits?

This is exactly why these are still good for some people despite the fact that they're slow. What with dropbox and the like, I rarely need a USB stick to transfer files so I normally forget to carry my faster USB3 stick around. This one I keep on my keyring and it means I actually have it on me when I need it.

I mean this specific model of stick. This has been for the last few years the go-to stick for keyring/pocket use because it's a really tough (metal casing) one piece construction (no moving parts, no caps), compact and has fantastically strong hole to which you can attach the aforementioned keyring. *That* is the point of this keyring and why people have bought them in droves.

The one you linked to just cannot be compared. It's a USB stick, but it hasn't been designed for the same usage scenarios at all.

Well I understand it has its niche, but i was pointing out another USB for people who are looking for a usb that is 3.0. People will still buy this usb if they have a specific reason.

Are places jacking up the prices of their USB drives now?
I got a 32gb for £6.99 well before Xmas!
#32
So slow... At the moment I'm copying 6 GB single file and speed is 3-4 MB/s connected to i3 laptop... I have another kingston 32GB usb 3.0 - even connected to usb 2.0 slot it reaches 15-20 MB/s speed, over 30 MB connected to usb 3.0 and I paid under tenner for it.

Buy only if you don't care about speed. Good build quality, I have it with my car keys just in case I need it.

not always they dont, NO ! as the op said... this stick is ideal for the purpose it was bought, its merits are not limited to capacity and speed... Obviously.. lighten up eh.... and of course it is only cold IF the same, or a similar item can be bought cheaper elsewhere..

I paid £130 for a 4MB 72 pin SIMM module for a 486DX2 66 - better still I thought it was a stonking deal at the time.

I remember paying £350 for a 5Mb hard drive to upgrade a double floppy IBM XT in 1982. In those days a floppy disk really was floppy. Still have an 80's vintage wordstar floppy *180Mb).

As far as this deal goes.......I think they should have a separate section for "add on" items for people to go to if they are already buying something. If they do then just ignore.

After all if you buy a Chinese Sunseeker for £5,000,000 in Poole Harbour you can get one of these as an add on for "free". It will have the name sunseeker on the side in Chinese though.

Come on lads....get serious....my first PC had the optional extra 48 KILOBYTE memory! Standard build was 8KB.

Tandy Model 1 - 1979.
#38
btw the 8GB is available for just 90p (choose standard packaging).. and that's not an add-on item :)
