Yeah, I bet it would be more durable than the plastic articles too......hot for me.

note, one of the comments say

"I tried everything from DOS format to erase!!! Cannot remove Kaspersky. Also the drive is very slow...NOT USB 2.0 speed."

There are no USB 1.1 drives of that capacity I can assure you... It would actually cost more to come up with a USB 1.1 2GB flash drive because of economies of scale.. As for removing Kasperky AV, there's another link to the Kaspersky website on DX

just pointing out the comments of people that actually own the item, every comment states failure to remove the program from the drive.

Would having an anti-virus really be such a bad thing? I mean unless it took up allot of space from the 2gb, then you could just put the antivirus in a folder and have it hidden. But with all memory products, there must be a way to get rid of it, it cant be permanent.

comments suggest it's on a separate "locked" partition.
I really like the drive, but I use a mac, so anything on there would be wasting space.

has anyone tried fdisk to remove the partition(s) as format obviously wouldn't do anything.

if it was 8gb and had no useless antivirus for us linux users, it might be hot.

Personally, i would not buy any software from China, or even use a CD that came from China without first scanning it with AV software. Elsewhere on DX people have reported that the CDs (for drivers) that come with some PC bits contain viruses.

Actually installing what appears to be AV software from China is seriously not worth the potential hassle if it actually turns out to be a virus/trojan.

I have recently bought a few similar stick on ebay from Hong Kong sellers and they were USB 1.1, terribly slow, even though they claim it's USB 2.0.

Is there any charge for using a Halifax Visa debit card on Dealextreme becuase of the different currency?

Halifax debit cards are subject to a £1.50 charge per transaction in a foreign currency.

I'm pretty sure Paypal can do the conversion for you, so it will come out of your bank in £'s, mine did.
Might be for credit cards only though.

So if a use Paypal to pay via my Halifax visa debit card, then the only fees will be the Paypal fees?

Didn't think you paid any.

Surely fees are only payable if you recieve funds.

download the free active kill disk, will sort it

As pointed out if you pay with Paypal(and ensure that you have the relevant setting in paypal to make sure PAYPAL convert for you not your bank) then you will have no fees regardless of which bank you are with.

Matt - its really annoying!! It is making me consider moving banks...does anyone know of a bank that has "fee free" foreign currency purchases?

As far as I know, the only bank offering a current account with this is Nationwide. (I read it in an article a while back: ]check it here - it's an old article though so might have changed).

If you're happy to use a credit card, my Egg card doesn't charge a fee for foreign transactions, but I suspect they make it up in other ways (like with a slightly-worse exchange rate or something!). I've had it for years too, so they might have changed their T&Cs for new customers.

(And yes, it's a right pain. I'm with the Halifax and paid around £100 in charges when I went backpacking a couple of years back!)

So using Paypal will not incur fees regardless of what bank im with?

Thx for ur help so far, repped.

i think the general concensus is don't trust any honk kong ebayers, especially when it comes to flash drives!

It'll be slow because the memory isn't dual-channel I'd guess. Most drives aren't - a movie takes longer to copy onto my 1gb stick single channel stick than it does to download! My 4gb drive on the other hand is dual channel, and 10x faster at real world copying tasks (I did a lot of research to get the fastest one around at the time). Both are USB 2.0

This one looks robust - the plastic ones I attach to my keyring always break so I may give it a go.

Received mine this morning and what a disappointment. Build quality doesnt exist- basically the worst item I have ever layed my eyes on or bought. Its already falling apart. Would never trust it to secure any form of data on the thing.

When I plugged it in to the USB port all sorts of strange things happened!!!!!!!!!!

Going to file a claim with paypal.

your pc is now a new member of the red guard...
