Lifetime Warranty

I've had this memory stick for 6 months and I can say it's the best stick I've ever owned (works great playing 1080P movies from it on the PS3). I've never had a problem with it even if I did it has lifetime warranty anyway. I paid £21ish quid for it and the lowest I've seen it was £17.99, so £14.45 seems a bargain.

Erm, correct me if I'm wrong but you won't be able to play most 1080p movies with an 8GB stick as even a single 100 min MKV/ WMV-HD/ AVC-HD/VOB file @ 1080p will be too big (unless it is so heavily compressed as to make it a pointless exercise.)

Pedantry aside, good deal if you need a super quick USB drive.

The 1080P movies I download are usually under 10GB's and with them being MKV's you have to of course convert them so the PS3 can read them. I do this by using a piece of software called "mkv2vob" which also allows you to split the movies into parts thus being able to put them on this 8GB stick.

I know mkv2vob but my point is you are either using such a low bitrate it renders it pointless to use 1080p as the source or (and please tell me you're not doing this) you are chopping the film in two and watching it in two halves from the 8GB drive with a delete and copy break in the middle :prop:

Playing 1080P movies from it is only 1 of the things I use it for...it's a USB stick and I think you've forgotten that :thumbsup:

The ones I download are good enough quality for me, I'm not going to complain, there not costing me anything ;-).

If the movie is bigger than 8GB's I would copy each part from my usb stick to my PS3 hard drive and watch it off there, but if I can fit 2 parts onto the stick then I'll just watch it off the stick.
