quick transfer speeds and good price

Good price for Sony, shame they made the stick about twice as big as it should be

dunno why they went so big

isn't it just long? not so big though

Are you sure it has those speeds?
Sony Website states (for USM8GJB):
Reading transfer speed with USB 2.0 (MB/s) - 12.0

Writing transfer speed with USB 2.0 (MB/s) - 7.0

Cracking little deal for a Sony...

I got the information from ]here when you click specifications but i don't know if it is correct.

Why is Sony so expensive???? memory on the whole 3 times more why????

Red hot - I thought £9 for 4Gb was a deal a few weeks ago!

Does anyone know which would give better transfer rates? This, or the Sandisk Micro Cruzer U3?

it does state UP TO which can be very misleading as it is unlikely to be a sustained rate.
dimensions are way off?????
it makes the flash drive bigger than a stack of 10 cd's !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Because allegedly Sony is a good 'brand', this is why they justify the higher price in all their memory products. Not forgetting the lovely packaging.

I had a Sony 256Mb Micro Vault once. Broke after 14 months. Not forgiven Sony yet. (This stick too was rather long for no real reason)

Just memory?
ALL their products.

I too was scammed by Sony and their premium status - so was my partner, as both of us in the past have had duff Sony products, most especially both had TVs, which are also effectively not repairable due to the hyper-inflated cost of repairs, and cost of spares!

If the Sony myth was ever true, it was long ago :-(

Expensive?

An 8GB USB stick for £10.99 is expensive? I do hope you're not serious :).

No I am not... I posted before I had finished, and was looking at another Stick on Play .com... so I initially thought I was commenting on that! It is actually cheap, but just another flash drive, Sony no longer "does anything" for me

True, I avoid their stuff now, I was a huge Sony fan at one time.:x

Lol, the description on that website can be very misleading. I've taken it off now as it is confusing people.

If you guys are talking about the dimensions, it's not big at all.

I think it's too long for key ring and will make them even less comfortable putting into your pocket.
