Insane capacity, not as high a price as I expected either.

Makes my 8g voyager seem limp now.

Get one in the states next time I go I think. Sheesh all my dvd/cds and other install stuff can go rot.

Flash drives are just getting bigger and bigger.

But why waste money on one this size when you can get a portable (Powered solely by the USB port) 250GB hard drive for a much more reasonable price?

Because some people buy things on size alone.

I've a 2GB that I generally use for carrying around small files (mostly college related).

For nearly everything else I want to carry around I use the Freecom 160GB "Toughdrive" I have.

I wouldnt mind one of these, BUT, they are so small they become easy to lose. Or am i just the kind of guy who loses everything?!?! har har

Good idea though, would use it for taking games and movies to makes, saves lugging dvds.

At work I use my mem sticks for storing drivers, software and patches etc. It's ideal for when you are in the workshop, as CD's & DVD's don't tend to last long without getting scratched or damaged in one way or another. At home I don't really use them much as my PC's are networked. It's always handy to have one or two laying about though. I have a few that have Windows XP installed on them and I use in emergencies etc.
