Lol, the first thing anyone would want to know is the capacity and I can't see the size anywhere in the ultra long description. It's like some LCD TV deals posted where there is no mention of the screen size and you see it at the bottom after you have spent 10 minutes reading the description to find that it is not the one you wanted (_;)
#7
that will prob be a no then my "new" lappy is 18mths old but can not remember anything about usb3 on the box thanks anyway

No other kit needed - it will run fine just not at USB3 speed - so unless you are planning to get a new lappy soon then just get a USB2 stick and save a few quid

I was advised by a techie friend of mine that these will still run faster than a standard USB 2 stick so I tested my one out (it's the 8GB version of this offer). I downloaded a 1.13GB folder of images from my UBS 2.0 desktop to a Kingston DataTraveler G3 (USB 2.0) and to my Adata USB 3.0 flash drives. The DataTraveler took 8 mins 17 secs but Adata only took 3 mins 56 secs - so less than half the time.

The Adata is also a very solidly built bit of kit.

Speeds of USB sticks vary widely, and they don't often reach USB2's limits of 35meg/sec) anyway, especially for writes.
#12
Are those read/writes realistic? As i previously failed to see the point in USB3 flash drives due to fact that the NAND used is so slow.
suspended#13
shame the write speed is so slow, there are usb2 pens with 32mb/s write. If the write speed was 35mb/s i'd buy this in a heartbeat.

The 32GB version has 34mb/s write: http://www.7dayshop.com/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=777_6&products_id=111052

Shame that costs £42 though.

For the price a USB powered hard disk is better value
#15
good value if you want something smaller then a portable HD
#16
Im sure this is a good deal compared to similar products but I dont see the point in getting a high memory capacity usb stick. 4gig is always more than fine for me.

To hold mp3s in the car if your head unit supports it.

Cheap way to backup all your photos (unless you have an absolutely massive collection)

I also carry about 12gb of work around with me, flash stuff, PowerPoints and loads and loads of programming stuff. Also portable applications cs5 and stuff encase the pc I'm at doesn't have the program I want.

I've got an external hardrive for anything like that and its much cheaper per gig

Pointless saving a few quid, when you can get something for a few quid more than a usb 2.0 and be futureproofed. That is unless (hopefully) Thunderbolt takes off in the next few years, in which case USB will be dead tech.

You're comparing 2 completely different things I'm afraid, as they both serve different purposes.

What is Thunderbolt?

What is Thunderbolt?

thunderbolt is a new standard that is on new apple computers and will be on other computers in the future, it supports 10gbps, usb3 supports 5gbps and sata6gbs supports 6gbps so its faster than all of those.
#23
In other words, it is a competing standard, much in the same way that Firewire was competing against USB and USB 2.0.

Thanks for that.
