CDR-King‘s got a great new product out, very good value for your money: the Ridata Flick EZ Drive 8G USB Flash Drive for PhP880. I was in Megamall for the Oct. 17 three-day sale opening, and dropped by store first thing. I was actually looking for a cheap-but-reliable 4G flash drive like the one I bought for TDM recently (he had lost his in Cebu), but was glad to find this much better one!
Mine is matte black, as in the picture. I like the thumb-slide protection of the drive case, as other models have removable caps that can get lost. There’s a hole in the other end so that you can attach it to your keychain. It also comes in white.
Inside there’s a user manual in pdf format, but it’s practically useless for English speakers as it’s written in Chinese. Anyhow, if you use flash drives a lot, you won’t really need it.
The speed is “Lightning Class”, which would be the equivalent of a Class 6 for Transcend. I made a file benchmark test using Flash Memory Toolkit, and it gave me the ff. very good results (click on image to enlarge):
The price difference is to definitely to our advantage! If I were you, I’d get this instead of PQI. Once this is out of stock you’ll have to wait to get a new one. Get one soon, world global financial crisis notwithstanding.
(Now waiting for a good price on a 16G…)
