The title reads like it's a 'x 3 pack' but it's a 'spiderman 3 pack'.

This actually gives 6gb with compression, so not a bad price at all.

Wrong - edi's deal/drive does NOT have the virtual expander software which gives you the extra - as others I'm sure will testify :whistling:

Personally i'd just as sooner get an 8GB for the same price rather than a 2GB i have to compress.

I second that, extra £2 quid for 8GB of actual flash memory compared to 2GB. :thumbsup:

Compression might probably get a bit fiddly or slower sometimes, for extra £2 why bother with the hassle?

There's nothing to compressing, an essentially 6gb drive for under a tenner works out at £3.33 per 2gb, same cost as getting an 8gb!

Ditto ......i wouldn't buy this 2gb drive either .....their just punting off old 2GB stock at a poor price ! :roll:

This is poor value for money by today's standards. This is only a 2gb drive. Compression software are freely available (freeware)

]THIS is a much better offer at £10.99

Good reduction, but prohibitively expensive price for what you get - ie a 2GB USB stick, when Amazon will currently sell you FOUR TIMES that - ie a SanDisk Cruzer U3 ReadyBoost 8GB for under a tenner (plus any P&P of course) as featured elsewhere on here.

It might succeed at compressing a text file to a third its size, but if you stuff a compressed data format on there such as a zip file, or an mpeg or a compressed executable, its not going to compress much if at-all.

At this price you can buy a drive that is genuinely 8 GB and use 7-zip if you want.

Yeah I had to laugh when I read 6GB w/compression.

Any kind of binary file will render compression useless, it might even end up using more space (try zipping a zip file a couple of times :)).

Sorry but i have voted cold because i bought this more than one year ago from Play.com for the same price. I don't know why it is called Limited Edition you only get a red spiderman lanyard inside, nothing special.
