I suspect this to be a good deal for a tiny USB stick. Comes with 1 year warranty.
Read Speed 20 Mbps
Write Speed 28 Mbps
USB 2.0

Code: VC5 (Caps) brings it down to £22.79. Ouch!

Any idea what one of those is?
20MB/sec write and 28MB/sec read, read speed is always faster
Looks to me to be a very easy way to lose 64GB of data at that size, but a hot deal none the less
Looks like a really good price for a compact drive.
3.0 would of been better , however still a good deal , heat added !
A good way to expand a Macbook Air storage But USB 3.0 would be helpful.

As said USB 3.0 would be nice but those speeds are from from terrible. Great price.

does anyone know where to buy a nano 3.0 usb stick with similar capacity?
Um, did nobody think to check eBay? lol

ebay.co.uk/itm…b=1

Same company, same drive but £20.98 (free delivery)

UPDATE: They have noticed the mistake now and put the price up to £23.98 (congrats to the 22 people that nabbed it at the reduced price)

As others have said, shame about the lack of USB 3.0, but can't really complain about a 64GB stick that should fit just about anywhere for that price
It always baffles me when people say shame about the lack of usb 3.0. What difference would this make?

As surely it's cheap slow memory used on these drives, so having usb 3.0 would make no difference to read and write speeds.

Surely it should read, shame it does not have faster more expensive memory and use 3.0. Which would make sense as simply shoving usb 3.0 on a device does not automatically make it faster.

well if you have usb 3 spec'd usb drive, it has to meet minimum specs to be classed as usb 3, which is higher than usb 2. Hence it will be faster...

Really? Any proof of this because as far as i know there is noting stopping you putting the very slow memory on a usb 3.0classed product. As pointless as it would be.

Yes it does have minimum specifications as far as i know, but they are to do with amps etc nothing to do with memory and other things onboard.

anybody actually used these?

Do you mean the company, or the drives?
The company is fine - I've used them quite a few times, never had any problems. I can't attest to the drives though.
Bought one of these before, great little stick
Ideal size, just what I needed for my TV. Thanks
Awful company to deal with. They now dispatch from Switzerland (though the website suggests it's from the Channel isles) and the stuff takes ages to arrive.

Don't order unless you're prepared for a long wait. And they won't do anything at all for at least 21 days after they take the order:

In the event of non-delivery, please allow 21 days before contacting us (28 days for International customers), as we do need to allow for postal delays before we can arrange a refund or replacement.

I have no experience of this particular drive..but my 64gb USB3 from 7dayshop reads at 75MB/s and writes around 35MB/s
it would be pretty silly of a manufacturer to specify a USB3 drive and then provide USB2 speeds..I guess anything is possible !!
looks good for the money

do you get a big case to put it in so you don't misplace it?

Yes and there is a reason why it's faster....

It has faster memory on the stick although over the 30+ MB/s yes the usb 3.0 will come into this. But people stating for this product shame it does not have usb 3.0 is stupid, the usb speed is irrelevant simple fact is it cheap for a reason it has lower speed memory. And there is nothing wrong with this.

a penny cheaper
^^^^^^^^^^^^^

DJROBMAC said the drive was £20.98 on eBay. I am pointing out that it is not.
As the likes will tell you scrumpy it was £20.98, 22 people bought it after I posted it and now they've put the price up.
Might be wise to amend your quote then to clarify DJ

agreed, I mean you can get USB 3.0 external hard drives that only have 5400rpm drives inside others with 7200rpm drives... yet they're bother considered USB 3.0?
Has anybody tried one of these nano sticks regarding read/write speeds?
I have a Patriot extreme USB2 that would only match these sort of speeds??
Amazon Verified PurchaseI just received the drive from mymemory. Out of the box it was terrible: for 15 large files (700mb and more) write speed started at a fair ~6 MB/sec but rapidly dropped to less than 1 MB/sec. Copy process completed without errors, but copied files couldn't be opened (except the first two).
I reformatted the drive using fat32format (windows won't format a 64gb drive in fat32 without a 3rd party utility like that) and files were copied at a steady 6,25 MB/sec which was expected for this class of price. However, once again copied files (all but the first) could not be readed .
As expected, winmerge showed differences between source files and files copied in the pocket drive.
I asked for a refund or a replacement, and I'm waiting for it.
possible fake drive h2testw will tell

The USB 2.0 interface is the bottleneck, even for 'slower' flash.

Don't talk out of your backside and come back when you know what you are talking about.

usb 2.0 You will get around 33MB/S saturated

How come this one is offering

Read Speed 20 Mbps
Write Speed 28 Mbps

although no doubt the wrong way around. If it was restricted by the usb 2.0 interface it would offer faster than that.

I suppose drives like

hotukdeals.com/dea…778 are also restrained by the slow usb 2.0 interface?

The list goes on simply no it's cheaper slower flash memory used, and there is nothing wrong with this. As it give people the options of either increased storage or increased speed for the same price point.

MyMemory do several cheaper 64GB drives. However this would be perfect for extending the memory of my Wii U
Good Read/Write speeds for USB 2. Much better than the typical 64GB usb drive that gets posted on this site every week thats 5MB/sec write speed
Good for Nexus 10.
I bought the Sandisk Extreme Pro... More expensive but has speeds of 130mb/s read - 60mb/s write! Was really fed up of buying cheap cut price drives that take half an hour to write a couple of Gb's to it. The Extreme Pro takes a couple of minutes!!!

the drives...dont have the most confidence with them...yes a true test is needed with a physical product....shame also...saw them at 20.98 on ebay...and thought i'd 'buy later' that turned out well!
