About a week ago I decided that my 256mb flash drive wasn’t cutting it anymore. I got myself a Super Talent 4GB for $18 off of supermediastore.com.
The Drive was as promised and the reviews were fairly accurate. But…
1) the darn thing is too small, it really doesn’t hit you that it is too small and hard to keep track of until after you get it in your hands
2) the shiny outer sleeve fits rather loosely so the plastic gets exposed frequently straight out of the box
3) the plastic casing should actually be metal because its obvious it can be broke if handled wrong or from a serious drop to a hard surface
4) it’s write speed is super, super slow; this is especially true for folders with many small files
I’d have to say my biggest complaint is the write speed on it. It takes me 1-2 hours to write about a 1GB of data onto it. Other than that, I partially alleviated all the minor design problems with a paper clip and some shrink tubing.
Review Thoughts: Rating (3/5), that means don’t buy it. Super Talent offers a more stable looking metal drive… but the speeds are the same… 😡
