Cheapest 4GB Flash memory drive disk I've ever seen. I think it's £3 cheaper than at Play.com even though you have to collect it.

To be able to just walk in and buy for £16.99 this has to be voted hot!

66 songs in mp3?

even at high bit-rate and average 10mb per song, surely that's got to be nearer 366?

unless we're talking 35 minute wig-outs?

Hi, Good find. I like PNY flash drive products. Surprised it's not a Medion/Tevion offering. Thought that Aldi were charging a lot for their PC hardware but this is a good buy in fairness to them.
Voted hot.

Not sure if this is a different type of device but I ordered the 4GB SanDisk Cruzer with U3 technology from Play.com and that was £17.99. Just thought I would mention it as I liked it small size and the fact that you can install certain application on it. Here is a link:

Hope it was ok to post this.

Wow, expected this to be a no/unheard of braner but PNY... excellent :-D

Good size too. Sick of seeing 1GB namless drives for £5 on here... no use to me! :)

I bought the Sandisk 4gb for 17.99 from Amazon a few weeks back.

It's brilliant, and the fact that it's U3 compliant it's great for carrying around those 'portable apps'.

:thumbsup:

If you dont need the U3 or are put off by Sandisk, the PNY one will do just fine. :)
#10
Aren't SanDisk are one of the top brands when it comes to flash memory?

Yep. SanDisk along with any manufacturer known for making memory like Corsair, Crucial, Kingston etc. PNY are also up there amongst recognised names for memory products.

Sometimes some drives have certain features that will sway you such as security (encryption) or bundled software or design.

I myself chose a 4GB Corsair Voyager because it's robust and water proof. If you look at the various reviews you'll see they put it in water, run over it in a car and it still worked! Sure enough, as I anticipated, I forgot to take mine out of my trouser pocket one day and it went through the wash. Came out working just fine. Still using it and I got it when the 4GB drives first appeared. Think I paid around £70 at the time!

Good price but out of stock.

A few comments..

1. I hope Aldi don't "Do a Play";-)
2. Portable apps. I keep plugging away at this as I think they're brilliant:) Go HERE to see what it's all about;-)

By the way, if anybody does go to pick one up you will most likely have to ASK for them at the checkout as they're normally stored in the managers office:thumbsup:
#13
As said, a very good price for a 4GB on the High Street - voted HOT!

voted hot. dont think i will get it though - these days i use wireless and the ext HDD for work ... but the mem stick clearly a useful and fast way to move files around!
#15
yes, good for Readyboost in vista. Nice price.
#16
Not being U3 compliant is not an issue because you can install the PortableApps.com Suite, I've used both and prefer the PortableApps.com Suite.

Cool, I'll give this a try. I did use portable Firefox at one stage but because I'm rarely on a PC all my settings aren't stored on (i.e. work, main PC, laptop, media system) i never found myself using it. Then when i did need to use it all my settings, bookmarks etc were out of date!

Do you have to use this all the time then for it to have full effect? Can't help but think apps will run slower from a flash drive.
#19
Good deal. Have been looking for a bigger usb for a while now, and this is definitely the cheapest ive seen for a 4gig. Will definitely consider heading out to an Aldi tommorrow to try and pick one up. Cheers for the post.

Has anyone tried one of these as a Vista ReadyBoost device?

Just wondering if anyone's got one already, or know someone that tested the read/write speed in Vista for compatibility.
#23
Nobody has mentioned the 3 year warranty, make sure you keep your receipt somewhere safe.;-)
#24
Can't find one cheaper.. Voted HOT !

If you use portable apps on your usb as often as it seems you do, isn't there a great risk if you were to loose it? I'm in particularly worried about the Thunderbird emails. Is there or can you get some form of encryption in place for a just in case situation?
#26
I have been looking but as yet not found any protection or passwording for the whole drive (U3 has a double partition that wont let you in to the second without a password)

I don't tend to keep many sensitive emails, and you can protect you accounts with passwords in thunderbird. best advice, dont lose it :whistling:

hey first of all my brain's a bit slow today so i might not be thinking properly but what really are the advantages of using portable apps?

the way i see it, is that with a portable flash drive you are constantly moving files from one pc to another; if you really need to use say firefox on another pc that doesn't have it..personally i'll just keep the firefox.exe installation file on the usb drive and install it.

that what i used to do anyways :p

i used to have the installation files for stuff like internet browsers, ad/aware spybot like programmes, nero etc.

cheers for any advice :thumbsup:

brilliant deal btw!

unless we're talking 35 minute wig-outs?

:giggle: That should read 66hrs of mp3.

Right basically it's like having a laptop in your pocket. When you install apps fresh onto somebody elses machine you have to mess about setting them up etc, whereas these will already be set up to how you want them. Email accounts, favourite web pages, basically whatever you want to do you can probably get a portable apps version to do it. Even if it means going to 'oldwarez' sites to get ancient stuff that used to run from floppy disk, and there are actually some good olduns out there that are no longer produced/supported.

the other advantage of using this method is that you are effectively running 'stealth' apps that won't mess up the settings on the other persons pc. The full portable apps package comes with an office suite (open office), now imagine how much hassle it would be to go round your mates for the weekend and have to install that. With this its always ready to run, plug and play applications in effect ;-)
#31
Yeah, what he said! :giggle:

the best part i find is the email, using a few PC's, its a pain having emails on different PC's (having outlook on different units, i know i could stop it deleting off the server so i have them everywhere, but portable apps is a lot easier!), so i take my entire mailbox with me everywhere, plus, all my favorites too.

All gone by 09:10 at the Aldi near too where I work. (Washington, Tyne & Wear)

Good little device though.
