R2D2 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.
* 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 £.
