Might bag myself one at this awesome price!

These are as fast as hell. Forget the spec of other makes coz I've bought others for their speed and they don't come close to this.
Hot!

Ordered 2, thanks for the heads up

anyone know if these are compatible with the joggler for running ubuntu netbook release etc?

Your recommendation sounds good enough for me, bought one... Cheers!!

Had one these for best part of a year and had no problems with it. Been switching it from FAT32 format to MAC EXTENDED and still is running strong, heat added!

Will this work well in a Car Stereo? I have a USB port and I am wondering if it would be better to get a USB stick or an microSD Card (it takes both) ?

These are as fast as hell


I would respectfuly disagree. IMO 'fast' is writing at 20Mb/s and slow as 8Mb/s
According to Play:
Read Speed: minimum 12MB/s (80x)
Write speed: minimum 3MB/s (20x)

This makes these glacial. If you don't care about performance (e.g. copy music to the stick then leave in the car stereo for the next 6 months), then it's not bad value for money . . .

Will this work well in a Car Stereo?


Yes, as long as the stereo supports playing music from memory sticks. Might be worth checking if there's a max size of stick the stereo will recognise, but this *really* shouldn't be an issue. And, in my experience, Play are good with returns anyway.

why would you disagree?
blizzard obviously has one of these and has tested the speed and compared to the specs given and found it alot faster than stated.

Where is this info ?

Where is this info ?


good question

The only stats I quote are from Play's own page. There are also a couple of comments from previous purchasers saying that speed was very slow.
Ideally, someone here who already has one of these would publish the stats reported by a benchmarking prog such as Check Flash (chkflsh.exe).
I raised the issue of speed because, although I've been relatively happy using a slow 32Mb stick (£32) for a year or so, I get bored of waiting for large files to copy. My recent purchase of a fast 16Gb stick (Transcend 600 for £21) has made me very happy :-)

I mean where are the read/write benchmarks to say these are fast as poster said as all previous info on these suggest generic slow hardware.

Cancelled this and went for the Transcend 600 for £20.40 delivered through My Memory on Amazon.

Cheers to simonspeakeasy as time is an issue and I see that the Transcend has speed in abundance...

Not that I really know what I'm talking about, but aren't these slightly better in regards to the read/write speeds?
