    dont be fooled by the usb 2 factor.. these things are very slow compared to say a usb 2.5 inch portable hardrive..

    in smaller sizes they perform quick enough but for shifting 8 gigs from A to B they will take some waiting for..

    flash memory is slow.. and the 8 gigs aint as usefull as it sounds..
