I'm waiting for mine so will update when it arrives but this is a shame. You'd expect some variation but thats too much. Although I suppose you could argue £3 for 3gb isnt bad either, not too good for those needing 4gb for a purpose.

Thanks

Thanks! I got 3 for me and my sisters for uni. Great price! If you werent happy with it being less than 4gb you could either open a significantly not as described case or ask for a partial refund..maybe they will give you an 0.8% discount?!

You are right, just checked other 4 gig drives i have got and most show up at least 3.8, not sure were the space has gone. Worth the money but would expect it to be close on 4 gig rather than 3

Out of interest have you tried reformatting them?

still waiting on my original order

Yes just done that still 3.2. Strange one that why would you loose that much space. More concerned about why. still one of lives phenomonoms i guess. Not sure i spelled phenomenomssss correctly though

Still a good price but still much closer to 3GB than 4GB, would have been truly peeved if I had paid the full price from Argos.

Did they come marked as ex-Argos stock? (possibly an argos stock sticker on the package)

Or lose

Yes ex Argos with sticker, I guess the flash is such poor quality they have reserved 800MB for remapping bad blocks.

Curious-er and curious-er!

Thancks.:D

Wonder if anyone has had luck returning to Argos for a refund :-p

Just ordered 3. I always seem to loose these things!

only 80 odd left

not to worried about the loss of memory. i only need it to shift 800mb adult videos from my work computer to my home computer, works out as 4 videos per stick

not 4gb

I feel that there are negative reviews more than positive and how Misco will handle this (6000+ pieces) if it just 3.2gb.

all gone

Listing ended, all gone.

elofty

all gone



got the third from last one. close shave

Very poor, have emailed them. That is almost a 25% loss in data storage. Clearly not as described 4 gig. Only a few quid i know but that is not the point. I needed mine to make windows 7 bootable drives and they are no good for the purpose i wanted.

Have you considered the Zalman ZM-VE200 Portable Virtual ROM Drive? ;-)

I received my 4x Busbi 4GB USB sticks today and they showed up as 2.93GB

Contacted supplier. 0800 294 4515.
An apology. A full refund.
PLUS, "as it will cost us more to collect than the goods are worth, please can you dispose of the goods yourself?"

I repeat. A FULL REFUND and YOU GET TO KEEP THE SMALLER THAN EXPECTED 3GB DEVICES

Yep, my two show as 3.21Gb and 2.93Gb

Very poor

They are a sound company, just report the matter via eBay messages, I'm sure they will sort things.

Just received 2 both of which show 2.95Gb after reformatting. Contacted Misco for an explanation, await reply with interest.

Received qty this morning and both showing 2.94GB capacity. Message sent via ebay message this morning and expect a response probably some time after the weekend.

See my msg #29

Freephone Misco 0800 294 4515 with your Order Number to hand

Explain you expected a capacity nearer to 4GB than 3GB.

Get a full refund, and be told you can keep the USB keys

Just received two of these. One 4gb, other 2.94gb. How weird is that? Still useful though at price.

I can`t be bothered to phone them for the small amount of £6, my pay as you go mobile charges too much, even 0800 numbers. Just annoyed that they are 3gig and not 4gig. Need them for bt4

Cheers...I just tried ringing them but customer services closes at 1.30 on Saturday.
I will ring them back on Monday morning.
My USB drive was also formatting to 2.95GB
