What can I store on this flash drive?
This flash drive comes with 16GB of storage, giving you enough room for your documents and pictures. This gives you enough space for a combination of 900 images at 10 megapixels, 40 minutes of 1080p video, 1000 MP3 songs and still have room for 4GB of office files such as text documents and spreadsheets.

What can I do with a USB flash drive?
Flash drives are commonly used for storing documents to transfer between PCs. You can also plug them into compatible head units in cars, so you can play your favourite music without being limited to the small memory capacity of CDs. You can even use them to play your favourite movies on a compatible television. This gives you a durable memory stick which can perform a variety of tasks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely fast! Does what it says on the pack. Some people dont see the need for USB 3.0 and call it pointless but when you use it you can tell that data is been transferred at a much more faster rate. Absolutely a must have and I will recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what is says! normally copying my professionally edited videos (about 1gb each) takes about 3-5 minutes each but with this USB 3.0 memory stick it took me about 1 minute each!! easily 3x-5x faster than my Sandisk 8gb USB 2.0 memory stick! I bought the 8gb version of this too and it did the same thing!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Concerned I bought this product and had to return it because I was concerned that it was getting very hot. I was given a replacement immediately without any problem. The replacement unfortunately was exactly the same. I have now discontinued using the item.
