    USB Memory Stick

    Afternoon all,

    where's the best place to get a decent well priced 4gb usb memory stick ?

    MediaMarkt have a Sandisk 4gb model for 395 Euros is that a good price or are they better price anywhere online ?

    Thanks,

    Milan.

      I don't know the exact Euro-Pound exchange rate, but that sounds like about £280. Compared to prices of lower capacity memory sticks, which are about £50 per Gbyte up to 2 Gbytes, that's quite an extra premium you'd be paying.

          I think what the Owl was trying to say is, before you ask WHERE you can get a 4gb memory stick perhaps you should ask yourself if you NEED a 4gb memory stick.

          Why not buy a whole box of 256mb memory sticks instead? They cost bugger all and if you lose one it won't be 400 Euros down the pan.

            because Dipstick#2, I want only one memory stick and by the nature of my .Net work it will be of greater use to me to have a 4gb even if I have to pay more in the short term than to have 15 Dimprawn Dipstick 128mb usb sticks

            kapiš ?

                Can I be Dipstick#1 please?

                Look, it's like this. One big stick is a single point of failure. These USB sticks are often lost, stolen (especially a fcuking 400 euro one) or broken.

                Any .NETTER worth his salt knows this. You are just trying to outdo some other SAP by having the biggest stick. Admit it.

                  http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/4-GB-4GB-MEMOR...QQcmdZViewItem

                  Perhaps ebay is the way to go.

                    Maybe, if that gadget pops up as a single drive when you plug it in - It looks like a stick only in the sense that a 100 year old oak tree is a stick, and is probably case for a bank of internal individual sticks.
