    Pendrive

    What size Pendrive do you use. Is it enough?

    I have a 1g and it seems fine for most things. Not got near to filling it yet.

    why not get the drivers together that you would usually use. see what size they are, then buy the drive thats the size above that. i.e. 150MB of drivers means you need a 256MB stick.

    asking people if the size of pen drive they use is enough is pretty useless information. as theres almost always something else they wouldnt mind fiting on it.

    If you're forward thinking you might wanna get one which will be certified for Vista ReadyBoost.

    EDIT: Oh, it was a 'I have one' post rather than a 'What shall I get?' post. Doh.

    I suppose it is surprising how much will fit on a 1g pendrive? Depends on the files etc. I think 1g should be ample anyway. Drivers etc don't take up much space.

    I don't need a pen drive at the moment, but when I go to college I'll be needing one for my work.

    I'll only need a max of 1GB, but a Samsung 2GB is only £16 (only £6 more than a 1GB!) (http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=150987) so I may as well get one of them

    I've got a 256MB one and a 2GB one. Smaller drive has free programs (AVG, ZoneAlarm, SpyBot, AdAware and Spyware Blaster).

    Larger drive is hopefully going to be used for transporting Ghost Images to broken pcs. Only manage to get one on though as it's over 1GB.

    The 2GB dropped in price by about £7 the week after I bought it from Scan

    128MB, i paid £35 for it about 2-3 years ago.
    It's enough for me as all i use it for is word documents.
    you can get 1GB for 10euros now (or was it 2GB???) crazy

    I don't feel too bad about paying £24 for the 2GB and £16 for the 256 (a year or two ago) now so thanks for your post
