R2D2 USB Memory Stick Review

USB Memory Stick Review


In a world of USB flash drives that do

everything short of making dinner, there's something to be said for a simple flash

drive with a small price tag. And while you’re at it make it personal you could

go to any computer shop and pick between their black or grey sticks maybe

you’ll get lucky and find an Angry birds Memory stick limited to a 2GB storage.

We don’t like in a world limited to Black, Grey or Angry for this situation we

have the internet for which I thank, It means that I can get a more personal

product like this, It makes me able to say every time I get something new “Hey

guys look at this” Rather than “I got the Lexar JumpDrive®

S70 USB Flash Drive” and Dave saying “Yea me too mate”.







On top of its awesome appearance it seems fairly

sturdy with the material it’s made out of I think I could drop it a lot of

times without it breaking or risking anything and it should also be moderately

water resistant with the head covering the USB most of the time.



 




Now for any negative points, first the most common

problem with personalised USB memory sticks. Its shape isn’t the most effective

for its purpose of quickly plugging in to any USB slot. While it’s not

oversized or clunky it is effectively a barrel shape so it won’t go into all

USB Ports, for me this became apparent when I had to unplug something from the

slot next to the one this was going into to test it. So if your ever thinking

of buying a USB that looks like this or a cat or anything just be aware that

you may be switching around or not able to just slot it in like a basic square

USB.






 The second problem isn’t with the product but with the Price/seller. If

you are wanting to just buy one and want it for a deal price you will have to

wait something like 20-45 days so this can’t be something that you need

tomorrow as you could easily double to cost for a quick delivery. With this

there is also a tiny issue of having to pay in USD rather than £ meaning that

you may need to calculate the actual price.

Features:

* Fully compatible with hi-speed USB 2.0

* USB powered, no external power is required

* Just plug and play into a USB port, easy to operate

* Material: plastic

* Capacity: 2GB to 32GB

* Weight: 38g


Labelled

as “robot” USB 2.0 Memory stick in the site pages of Chinabuye.com, This memory

stick is a steal. Overall it doesn’t suffer any issues that you don’t get with

this sort of product and its just a quick plug in and play. I bought 4GB

version to test out costing around £6.40 with a range of 2GB to 32GB ranging

from around £6 to £17. *prices depend on postage, Quantity and exchange rates between USD

and £.
