    Thumbs down Cheap USB pen drives ?

    I was looking around and found these....

    1GB Arianet Silver Shadow Pen Drive - Aria Technology

    45p for 1GB is not bad ... I have noticed that there isn't a great amount of stock, but they do have some good prices.

    The Firefly range on Misco Computer Parts, PC Components, Desktop Computers, Laptops, Notebooks - Misco.co.uk are well worth a look. 8GB for under twenty quid. Bigger than the hard drives of most computers 6 years ago!

    REALLY cheap USB drives tend to be a false economy, the failure rate on the cheap ones the school used to by was astronomical.

    Personally I only get brand name ones nowadays, Kingston, etc

    The same's true for just about anything. Cheap's fine if it doesn't really matter (and is a bit of a use and throw away job anyway), but if you want something to last, cheap will cost twice as much in the long run.

    I added one of these onto my last order from them. Works out nice and cheap if you add it on, but not so good by itself.
