Flash drives are perhaps one of the most convenient computer-related inventions in the past few years. This flash drive made by SanDisk holds a whopping 8 gigabytes of data - and is still very compact - unlike high-capacity flash drives were a few years in the past. One thing I really like about this flash drive is that it doesn't have one of those annoying caps that covers and protects the USB plug, because those things seem to get left laying around and eventually lost. This model has a slider on it that pushes the USB plug out. It has a link on the bottom so you can carry it around hooked to your keychain. When plugging into the computer, there is no software or installations needed to make it work. A computer's Plug-and-Play feature will automatically recognize it. This makes the flash drive a great option for use with public or library computers. This is probably one of the best deals that I have gotten on portable storage, considering its rather large storage capacity.
