Yeh, not the fastest, but it aint no slouch either.
Write/read speed will of course vary from pc to pc.
I saw the speed, but still ordered one anyway a few hours ago. Just had the email stating it has been shipped already.

apparenty these are the chinese version easydisk. only 12 months warranty.
Still bought one thought! v. HOT Deal.
Thanks for the Info.

I have an HP branded drive identical to this - the aluminium is thin and scratches and dents easily, cap is also not secured very well so be careful!

Good price for what it is though.

excellent deal! Voted Hot!

Out of stock now. !
funny, 'cos they had loads showing in stock earlier.


Just a tip for you:

These look identical to a load of USB sticks we got at work, branded as our company.

The "brushed metal" is actually a rather horrible cheap plastic thing, made to look metally, and I've had at least 5 die on me, my family, and colleagues.

IF (and I admit its a big if) these are from the same place, avoid like the plague. They are very slow, and smell funny too. Like bleach or cleaning stuff. Very odd. You get a usb extension lead with them.

I know the ones you mean. Datawrite had some like that which were crap.
I have done some googling for reviews on these and the 4 gig ones came out ok and were actually proper aluminium with plastic edges.
I might have mine tomorrow, so we shall see how they fare.
They have got the drives listed on amazon (£47.99), and they state they are aluminium cases.
I hope these come back in stock

Well it arrived today.
It IS aluminium, and the quality seems fine.
Speed test is 9.7 MB/s.
All in all I am happy with the purchase.
I hope anyone else that bought is happy too.
