USB 2.0?
Thank you!
I got the USB 3.0 version of this off Amazon for £9.99 just before Xmas. Its very good, very fast. This is a USB 2.0, so it'll be nowhere near as fast - for a quid more
Just ordered a couple of these, after the Sandisk cruzer 32GB flash drive developed a 'write protect' error after a week.
Thanks - I'll be waiting for the USB 3.0 version to come down a bit more, though. £15.99 at present.
Has anyone got the link for a decent 3.0 version of this? and a silly question, but if im (for example) playing a film from my xbox using this, would the speed of the USB effect the quality of the film? or is it just the time it takes to get the film onto the stick itself?
After getting a laptop that supports USB 3.0, you just can't go back. I am now going to replace all my old usb's with 3.0 versions.
usb 3.0 is better - but if your laptop is usb 2.0, then it wont make any difference.
Anyone know if the security software can be removed or is this built into the drive?

Nice price but I have converted the PC's here to USB3 ..... USB2 is a thing of the past for me.

Surely you can just format the drive or run the clean command in diskpart through CMD.

Congratulations!
Decided to give it a punt, unless there anything in terms of hardware protection should be fine for what I need - Raspberry Pi based multi-boot fun
Got this exact one at Christmas from same supplier for the same price.

It seems really fast, very happy with it.

For anyone looking for USB3 drives I've been keeping my eye on these two products:

Lexar JumpDrive S73 - 64 GB - USB 3.0 (Dabs £24.99)
dabs.com/pro…=15

7dayshop USB3 64GB - 30MB/s (7DayShop £30.99)
7dayshop.com/mem…new

I got a couple of the 7dayshop 64GB ones when they were £21.99 - hopefully they'll come down again in the next few months as they seem decent

will make a difference, extent of which depends on hardware in question.
If max write speed of Flash Drive is same or lower than port speed, then go for it. Typically, a USB 2.0 high speed port is capable of supporting 30-35 MB/sec.
I get 22-23 MB/sec write with my laptop USB 2.0 port on Lexar S73 32GB for large single files (read movies).

USB 2 sticks are fine for watching films from, no matter what quality the film is, as the Read speeds are usually about 3x faster so you won't have any problems. Your XBox doesn't support USB 3 anyway so buying a USB 3 stick is pointless unless you've got, or plan to purchase, a laptop or PC that supports USB 3 as you'll only ever get USB 2 speeds.

Marketplace seller? The S73 has never been £9.99 on Amazon.
£12.99 was the going rate at several outlets over Christmas.

I depends on the size and number files you are writing/reading. You get a large boost for sequential reads/writes, so if you are writing ISO files, video etc. then the USB3 will offer a very useful increase in speed. For small random reads and writes the benefit is much smaller.
Don't need but I can't resist. I hate this site.
can anyone advise if i can use this with the XBOX 360 console as an additional storage unit as microsoft have recently increased the support for Flash storage from 16GB to 32GB.

does the XBOX require USB 2.0 or USB 3.0 ?

I bought precisely this, on Saturday, from Staples, for exactly £10.
Nice price

Same problem here!!!

It can make a difference actually since the USB 3.0 flash drives have faster NAND. A quick Google search should find some benchmarks.
It seems to be a struggle to get the prices down to sub £9, like we have had in the past!

good usb2 speed but no lanyard attachment stops me buying

plus the LED activity light that blinks during data transfer would drive me mad when watching films from it

thanks - would it fit a metal ring rather than just elastic cord?

Would it be easy to cover the LED?

Cheers
I doubt you’d get a metal ring in there easily. Not impossible, but not easy. It’s quite a generous cavity and wide gap around the moulded post, but a metal ring would struggle to fit. You could certainly push a string loop through that has a reasonable thickness. Covering the LED might be hard as the clippy slider would scrape off the covering each time it is actuated. Go to a Staples if you’ve got one nearby and get one of these for a tenner — that’s where I got mine on Saturday.

Right now I’ve installed Ubuntu 12.04 to it and it’s not so slow as to be unusable for running the OS from (but for some reason none of the current 32GB drives are as slick at running Ubuntu as some 8GB drives I’ve used in the past, including the 7dayshop ones).

thanks for the info but think i will leave it until i find one that can fit a metal ring

last drive got lost as the cord broke when i was out on the beers
Well, the Kingston Technology DTSE9 32GB is £15.40 right now on Amazon.
