I was primarily attracted by the rather exceptional price for this Play.com flash drive as getting 8gb of storage for the very low price of £6.99 is pretty good and the reviews on Play.com were largely positive with only a couple of minor negative points being raised, also I have owned a very similar looking drive before and never had any problems with it apart from losing the top. I only came across the flash drive from a promotional Play.com email.It is a blue plastic flash drive with a removable lid, it is about 6cm in length and a decent size making it easier to find in my bag. It is not the most stylish looking flash drive but as I use it primarily to store pictures that is not really an issue for me. The previous flash drive I had that is the same design did suffer from the problem of the lid becoming loose after a lot of use and eventually it fell off and i lost it, given that this flash drive is not for everyday use I do not expect to have the same problem but it is something to be aware of. When you are using the flash drive the lid does clip onto the other end to protect against loss.
With regards to transfer speeds it is not the fastest memory stick I have ever used but it is good enough, not exactly secret agent / Mission Impossible speeds but good enough for what I want to use it for. The most important thing is that it is reliable and I have not had any memory failures or upload failures when using this device and it currently holds about six reasonably large folders of pictures on it and the file transfer speed is the same for the last one as it was for the first.I have had no problems with this device and given that you are paying less than a pound per GB of memory it is a very cheap option and comes with free delivery as well.
