This USB stick has a massive 32GB worth of storage. Bearing in mind a lot of entry level spec laptops only have 80GB it shows just how advanced this product is. It can hold the equivalent of 13056 pictures (dependent on megapixel) or up to 512 hours of music. It is also USB 2.0 which allows much higher speeds than the previous 1.1. Finally this product comes with a 5 year warranty for peace of mind.

Price is only valid if you select the collect at store option, free for orders over £25, otherwise £4.95 for delivery

Usb 2 has been around since 2000! Hardly worth mentioning that in 2009!

Good price for a 32GB pen drive :)

Nice product

I have one of these plugged into my daughters TV

(The TV uses it as storage space to record freeview programs etc), and this stick is plenty fast enough to handle recording and playback of video with no stutter or breakup, (Something that was not the case with the 4gb sandisk stick supplied with the TV)

So should provide reliable high speed transfers in other applications

This brand is not very good... i got a smaller one from asda a while back and it did not last that long, keeps asking me to format it... but it never works.

For that reason alone i would not spend the money even if they cost less then £10...

I think the best ones to buy in the high street are the KINGSTON Data traveller ones from staples (I think pcworld might sell them also but pcworld tends to be more expensive normally), these are extremely fast, good to use as superfetch feature in windows vista or windows 7.
I got 3 (8gb) data traveller ones and they have lasted a long time so far.

The kingston one allows the usb to retract, which might be why they last longer also.
Price wise the 8gb were a bargain i think less then a tenner at the time of purchase but the 16/32gb are bit more expensive then this asda one... so imo i think might be worth looking out there on the web for any kingston data traveller offers then buy something that will not last.

...actually if you buy one keep the receipt for when it goes wrong :)

Think I prefer getting several smaller ones, cos cheap ones often break.
#14
great price i wouls say!
#15
A reviewer on Asda's website reckons it transfers data at 8.5MB/sec. For comparison, Kingston Datatravellers are specced to both read and write at 10MB/sec. So this is not a bad deal really plus it comes with a 5yr warranty. You're saving cash but probably compromising a bit in build quality. You pays your money........
#16
need a review tbh, i reckon this will be **** for that price.
#17
I have one and the brand on the front is Intenso. Very pleased with it actually. Speed is excellent and have not had any issues with data loss. Paid about £30 + £3.95 postage about 4 months ago
#18
Looks handy, dunno what I'd use it for tbh

Excellent point
If I haven't lost it before it has 1GB of data on it the wife has put it through the wash.
#20
Great deal, I hate taking my external drive around with my netbook, this is a perfect alternative at a great price.
#21
i hope its not fake like the £28 one from CeX.
#22
I sold Kingston flash drives for many years, for this price it is a bargain... The Play.com 32GB's are amazing too for fast transfer but are £50...

Bargain and 5 year warranty....

It's Asda!
Even if by chance they purchased some fake goods to sell on, they would refund you in a flash. :oops:
They don't want bad publicity or Trading Standards on their case. :)

Haha! love the sarcasm, good deal tho
#25
Bad deal IMO.
As arfster said, it would be better to buy a few smaller capacity ones, especially as you can get them cheap from decent brands. You will not be happy when you have put all your eggs in one basket and then find that you cannot retrieve any of it in a few months time.
#26
I plugged my 16GB play.com usb stick in to front usb ports on my pc yesterday nothing happened so I took the stick out, it was very hot and smelt of burning at that point I realised there was a problem hehe. Dunno if I can be bothered to send it back it has a month more warranty and they'll probably say my computer broke it anyway.
#27
It's worth reading the reviews on ASDA's site. It's definitely flimsy and slow compared to proper Kingstons and similar. For me, a retractable plug or fixed plug cover is pretty essential, although you can always attach some strong tape (with a little slack) to tether the lid. 32Gb is a lot of data to accidentally lose or get corrupted all at one time. I agree with Smashed and Arfster. If I had to carry 40 downloaded films around, I'd do it with several smaller drives. Handier too when you want to give a few files to someone and get the stick back later. Also, if you have an older PC, then I'm not sure they can all see this size of stick.

On the smilier side, it breaks my £1/GB cost barrier, and with ASDA you're safe from the epidemic of fake drives that has swamped eBad etc, and there's also the 5 year warranty. Note that USB 3.0 will be out soon, which will go like a rocket - but will also probably be incompatible with current sockets.

Overall, ok for back ups, not for constant use.

So you would rather buy 12 x 80GB hard drives than a 1tb one?

A 32GB pen drive is a 32GB pen drive, and this is nice and cheap. Cant comment on the product if you havent used it.

Was exactly my thought. I mean what logic do some people have??? So I should be 200 hundred Laptops with tiny memory on each to store all my docs, photos, videos, music....etc in case one of them goes wrong.

Have you people not heard of the concept of backing up???

dont talk rubbish.

firstly, i'd rather have 12x 80gb hard drives that were made by western digital, had a spindle speed of 7,200rpm, were on single platters and were SATA II as opposed to a single 1tb drive made by a no-name brand, 5,400rpm, 3 platters and SATA I - THATS HOW TO COMPARE THEM.

anyone who says 32gb is 32gb is really very ignorant, plain stupid, or in denial as they've just bought one.

until you've used a superior product as a control -you cant comment either! I've gone both routes numerous times and can say loosely that as a rule of thumb, what you pay for is more often what you get -and this my friend is an inferior product overall.
#31
More like what logic do you two have? So there's no comment worth making on a product if one hasn't used it? Don't be ridiculous.

These are not hard drives, nor are they used like hard drives. Nobody was suggesting a large number of sticks as a substitute. Nor is it even anything to do with backing up. Re-read the posts, and then maybe you can follow the issues that we are actually considering.

they'll figure it out sooner or later.. maybe they need to read the 3 little pigs again and realise that the cheaper house made out of straw isnt so great after all. to them a house is a house.
#33
great price ordered thanks
#34
Who's responsible for the warranty? Asda for the first 12 month, then CNmemory for the remaining 4 years? (make/style may vary?)

If you receive the CNmemory branded one they have some bad reviews, especially regarding customer service, warranties. Very good price though, about time memory started dropping again.

Oh dear oh dear, please get a grip for reliable storage on the go you have 1 option upload to a server with a mirrored array, most isp's offer this type of backup and seen as pendrives only work in a pc/mac is a sensible option and cheap. As a rule of thumb pendrives get lost, damaged or stolen well before they start corrupting data or falling apart.

Anyway build quality not as good as my lexar lightnings or corsair flash voyager but price is good and 5 year warranty from a highstreet retail outlet is very good indeed. There may be better options out there but this is a deal sight and this is a good deal. For non secure data transfer on the go this is a good item, for data backup use a dvd 20p lol ( last 10 years).
#36
That's a very good price for a 32Gb stick. I don't know what all the debate is about. Thanks OP.

If you're wanting to back up important data I'd recommend using more than one medium. You won't want to be looking for a DVD drive in ten years time.
#37
am i missing something about the free delivery? It appears to me that spending less tha £25 to get free delivery would be pretty difficult bearing in mind this product costs £29.63.

You need to figure out that we were not arguing about the quality of the product here (i.e your bricks vs straw analogy). No one here claimed this is a product with a superior build quality or reliability. I was trying to argue back at people who were talking about the the need to avoid using higher capacity USB (and putting their eggs into different baskets) in the event of data loss and using that logic to promote the idea that should spread your data onto smaller media in case you lose some. The talk about quantity (smaller is better:thinking:) is what was nonsensical.
#39
So can anyone comment on warranty? I recently had to return an item to Asda and was very suprised at the ease and quality of service. Stopped shopping at Tesco a very long time ago and now feel Asda are more deserving of my money.

How come it's asking me to pay £4.95 delivery?!!
