"An excellent product..but also a not so excellent product"

Introduction

Around five years ago I made a major leap into the world of electronics, and bought my very first, and very own USB stick. I had absolutely no use for owning a USB, and no real reason for buying one, but the idea of being able to carry 20+ movies around with me in a little piece of plastic and metal seemed pretty damn awesome. I even managed to convince my Dad to pay, and buy one for himself also. I currently own, and have with me, both of these USB's; only one of which still functions. if I was reviewing the one that still works, this would be a glowing, 5 star review for sure, and if I was only reviewing the one that didn't work, this would be an angry rant. Somehow I have to find a balance between the polar opposites...
Memory / Capacity

This USB stick, provided it works of course, has an excellent memory of 32GB. In my opinion, this is the optimal capacity for a USB. If you're looking for something with a much higher memory, you may as well bite the bullet and buy an external harddrive, for just a little more money. The working USB stick that I own and still use proved very useful throughout my school studies, as the relatively large capacity allowed for my homework, as well as the 15 movies I'd downloaded that weekend, to be stored on the very portable device, which I took to and from school with me. For those of you that are not so well-versed in the world of gigabytes and the like, 32gb is roughly enough room to store; ~5500 mp3 files, ~15,000 photos and 25+ movies
Reliability / Durability

Considering one of the two USB' broke within the first year of ownership, and with relatively little use, I have to rate the reliability poorly. I have no idea why the product stopped working, one day it simply wasn't acknowledged by my laptop, and never worked again. The other, identical USB worked perfectly. I still use it now, after 5+years of ownership. it never fails to perform exactly as it should, providing excellent and transportable memory, that can exchange files with laptops/ computers at an excellent speed.

The durability of this particular product has never been a problem, but it has never really been put to the test. The fact the working USB is still...well...working, should be a testament to the durability, however, it has been very well looked after. I can't imagine this little gadget, cased in a thin piece of plastic, would last very long if not looked after.

The small size of this device is very appealing, in the sense that you can store so much on such a little thing, but it is not all that practical. It is no more transportable than any average size USB, it is just easier to loose! However, I have noticed one excellent advantage of the tiny size! - yes...a small size can come with some advantages... And that is the fact, when plugged into a laptop, it doesn't protrude very far at all, allowing you to be as clumsy and careless as you like, without the risk of hitting and bending/damaging the USB.
Using the Product

This product could not be easier to use. You simply plug it into a computer/ laptop and start moving files between it and your laptop. There is no confusing, boring, slow installation process, just pug it in and away you go! As I said before, I have never had any issues with speed of this device, and no problems with the working device failing to do what its supposed to do. If one of the USB's hadn't stopped functioning altogether, this product would most certainly be a 5 star product.

The Price

SanDisk Cruzer Fit USB Flash Drive can be bought on Amazon.co.uk for £10, with the added bonus of free delivery! Considering this is a 32GB USB, from a reputable company, £10 is a very reasonable price, and in keeping with (if not cheaper than) the majority of the competing products. However, considering one of mine inexplicably stopped functioning after less than a year, purchasing this product may be a bit of a gamble. Although, I feel I must state, I made no efforts to determine the problem, or to fix the problem, or to determine the cause of the problem, or to have the USB replaced. Therefore, it is just as likely the cause of the problem was me, or something completely out of the control of the USB - as are most computing problems!
