As a heads up - You can get the titanium version of this drive from WHS with the current £5 off voucher for stationary available on here, making it £11.75. I have a couple of both now (so can confirm the voucher works. from advice on here, if they say it wont, politely ask if they would mind trying scanning it and it definately will!) the titanium one other than seeming far more sturdy, also seems to transfer data more quickly

This seems expensive to me for an 8GB stick...

I would instead recommend the same brand 16GB version from Amazon for £17.99, providing better GB/£ for your money:

Well pray tell where you can get this cheaper?

You would recommend.......???

Well please take it from me, spending £17.99 when £9.99 gives more than enough capacity is no bargain!

"More than enough" is entirely subjective. 8GB is not even enough 1 full 1080p film (or 2 720p films) if you're talking about HD video.

Definitely a good deal if your average user porting files to and from work, backing up a netbook, etc. is just looking for an upgrade from a 2GB or 4GB stick. :thumbsup:

NO NO NO!!!

If its more than enough, its more than enough!

I wrote
"when £9.99 gives more than enough capacity ". Nothing subjective about that, entirely or otherwise.
If I had said 8GB was more than enough, then you would be correct.

Anyway, Apology accepted! ;-)

Just because it is more than enough for you, doesn't mean it is for the rest of the population; really thats all that RyChar was trying to get across, particularly since there are other products which offer better value in terms of £/GB. Therefore, your statement is subjective.

Personally I would recommend getting the titanium versions of these drives as they are much more robust in my experience.

I understand exactly what he was trying to get across. Thank you for your attempt to elucidate. However, not only is your comment superfluous, it is also misguided and inaccurate.

Again,
I wrote
"when £9.99 gives more than enough capacity ".

The statement was not that 8 GB was enough to fulfil someone’s needs but that if you only need 8GB, spending an extra £8 to get a better £/GB is not a cheaper or better option.

If, (as in my statement), £9.99 buys you more capacity than you will use, to spend an extra £8 for an unneeded unused 8GB is not saving you money, is not a better bargain or a sensible alternative option.

Clear now?

(You got me on a bad day but it’s all said with a wink)…..ish.

I disagree, future-proffing yourself and giving you the option to grow is always a good idea.

When it costs nearly twice as much?
On the off-chance?
Surely not.

There's no such thing as "off chance" when it comes to portable memory, it's all relative depending on the type of media being stored...which is constantly evolving.

Remember when everyone thought 512 MB was enough for any SD card? Digicams evolved and shot greater resolutions, 512 became smaller than the defacto standard when 5mp cameras came on the scene.

The same thing will happen with memory sticks, it's just a matter of your use of them changing, or the techno you use them with evolving...for example, changing from an avid user of DivX to MKV files (as many people already have, currently are, or will do soon) will have a huge impact on your portable memory needs.

A stick can outlive the technology, provided it's not rendered obsolete by the fact that more space is needed.

All I'm saying (and it's just my opinion) is that for a few quid more you can (as far as possible/afordable right now, anyway) future proof your purchase by leaving room for improvement / evolution / change / whatever you want to call it.

Considering the 16GB stick (hotukdeals.com/ite…fl/) is so much cheaper than retail, that is both an affordable and sensible option right now...provided you're not stuck fast in the "this is all I need now, therefore all I will ever need" camp.

Just my 2 cents.

The whole point of our (highly entertaining) conversation is your original comment:

“This seems expensive to me for an 8GB stick...”

You have carried on telling me why I should buy the 16GB – but where is the 8GB is cheaper. :?

My point was that it's expensive in GB/£ terms when compared to it's larger brother, and in light of value for money, plus the reasons stated above for future-proofing your needs, the 16GB stick represents a better deal IMHO.
;-)

But, also as I stated above (are you even following me?)...this does seem like a good deal if all you want is a sub-£10, 8GB stick.

Well you are obviously not following me, as you still haven't replied to my question.

I take that back, if all you are looking for is a sub-£10 8GB stick then there are cheaper out there...
