These work perfectly, but the bit that you put on your keyring lasted less than a week. Just reached into my pocket a found it wasn't on my keyring anymore, upon closer inspection, I saw that the keyring bit was fractured...

good find vassy, heat added

Ordered one to stick in the back of my Wii U

nice fimd op...hot

In before "not USB 3.0 - waiting for my 17 jpeg files to transfer feels like waiting for my plane to go from London to Sydney it's just such agony. Because I have better things to do with the additional 2.47772 seconds, you know?"

7p Quidco too !!! X)
Ordered and voted hot (not influenced by Quidco!)

Good bang per buck on these. I have five of the 64Gb USB3 versions of then from a deal some time ago. They were extraordinarily and mind-bogglingly slow with file transfers.....but £/Gb certainly wasn't to be sniffed at!

avoid these at all cost. slow as hell. go for sandisk ultra usb sticks. so much better.
the sandisk ultra flair writes at 80MBs and 64GB i £14.99 at currys

USB 2.0 but still decent deal nonetheless

People have their own preferences, but imo for price/quality, Sandisk is king.

cheers mate

think these are flimsy but the price is great .

Get the 32gb USB3.0 version from Amazon for a couple of quid more.

I wouldn't buy these if you intend to carry them around, I had a couple of 8GB ones that had bootable tools on them that I carried around with me but the plastic casing along the top fell to pieces on both of them. I've used a variety of USB drives in a similar way and not had this happen before.

Ever tried transferring 20GB worth of video files on to USB 2.0, it's slow, very slow.

USB 2.0 takes about 1min per GB (20GB 20+mins)
USB 3.0 takes about 20secs per GB (20GB 6-7mins)

If your in no rush there is no point on spending more on a USB 3.0 version.

No-one should be producing USB2 flash drives nowadays

jasee

None of my Desktops or the Laptop have got any USB3 sockets so transfer speed is same whichever I use.
Also just checked the Android TV boxes & Blu-ray player - none of which use usb3 either & ive never had a problem with missing frames etc when playing movies via a dongle.
So I'll just buy whichever type remains best value - at least until one of the pcs needs replacing

Some people work in hell and do not have a computer with USB 3.0.

Moores' law died a long time ago, for some there is little point in upgrading if they just use Office, browsing and email.

I have never seen a 16GB stick that you can put 16GB of information on.
More like 14.7GB.

Well, these drives are 'suitable for storing high resolution photos or HD video' so it sounds like they'd be no good for Word documents.

Even then.. on usb 2.0 you'll still get 20MBs on the ultra where these will around 1-4MBs. Im just saying from experience. If you just want to copy a file and go it wont be a good experience.

Yes, but some people do not care. It all depends on use of the device and price.
Eg I have a USB 2.0 stick where I loaded Windows 10 setup.
It was so slow. Yes, very slow. It was a once only copy and it left it to take its time whilst I did something else. But it is an occasional use in case I need to repair Windows. It could be used twice a year at most. But the USB is invaluable at those times. For everyday use, I would be frustrated. For the use and price, it is fine.
