nice thanks

nice find cheers!

Wow, this should get HOT:{

Thanks.

This is worth forking out the extra coupla quid:
amazon.co.uk/gp/…-21

Thats it Im done with USB Drives.

I bought one from play, someone linked me to the above so I cancelled that and now another link to a drive that has more speed. Sick of it, you cant win with these drives, theres always something faster for a few quid difference that you find after having paid for the last one.

Great - thanks.
I'll send back the one from Play which I ordered 2 weeks ago & has still not been dispatched.
Heated.

Edit: the one on Amazon looks very breakable. And I can't find any independent verification of its speed.

Heh. But look at reviews for the link I posted. It won't be beaten, really.

That's because the guy in the first review is running one of these over USB 20.0!

with a 16gb drive u are so better off getting one thats fast..

u use it for big files, so waiting for the usual 5-8mbs drives is a nitemare!!

16G for £13 +++

Transfer speeds of 15MB/s Write and 30MB/s Read.hope this helps for the bytstar

i have the one from amazon, and its actually pretty though, i dropped my laptop and the usb drive smacked into the floor and fell apart, wires were holding it togeter, glued it together and it works as good as new.

tempted by the amazon one couldn't see where the read write speeds were though?

i have one and its about 15 MB/s write speed, and bout 30 MB/s read. so probably worth it if moving large files. as its twie as quick as this 7dayshop one

hotdealsuk

Why?



The 7 day shop one looks a decent buy (especially compared to the current Play deal) but even if it's maximum write speeds are true in practice then according to Amazon reviews and anecdotal evidence from your fellow HUKDers the Bytstore has twice the write speed.

absolutely

These things make me sick. I have a friend who just got back from China, and he bought a stick which holds 240GB and it cost him £5. There's a rip-off, and then there's England.:p

Is...Is a 240GB stick even possible? I mean Im pretty sure it isn't. Yet I mean.

If they were selling them in China you'd think they'd be flogging them on ebay...

Theres a rip off, and then theres China...

240gb? so its a one of these right??

flashdrivefacts.wordpress.com/200…24/

I'm sorry but if you think you can get a drive of that size anywhere in the world for a fiver you are a mug.

thanks for the bytestore 1.. lost my other 16gb usb and needed one which was faster anyway.. Went for the bytestore... has loads of good reviews.

LOLLLLLL

most of the memory sticks on ebay china are fakes and/or come with compression software.

240gb would either be a fake or a hard disk not a memory stick (which go to 32gb at the moment).

Get him to stick 240GB of data on it.
I'm waiting.

Really?
A 240gb flash drive for a fiver is clearly going to be either a fake or a joke by the guy that posted it, but you can get drives that size. It'll be a loooong time before we see them for five quid though...
Edited by: "Late" 18th Oct 2010

the one from china is clearly fake, BUT you can get 256gb usb from reputable company Kingston:

kingston.com/ukr…d=4

cost BIG bucks and reviews are shocking

anyway, this deal is HOT

FFS He was joking about the one from China!

Of course you should. I also noticed your post on the other listing and considered posting this deal well before Sotty2 did, but as I didn't actually 'find' it, I thought it would be stealing credit from you.

At least if I had posted it, I would have credited you in the listing.....

Fayther, Looking at the temperature, I think you should have posted it! I frequently scan through 7dayshop's "specials" page. When I spotted this I did a search for 7dayshop offers to make sure it was not posted previously. All that showed up was hotukdeals.com/dea…022
I note that the blue version has had a price reduction today (now £12.99 too)
