Product review - Super thin Kingston 32GB USB Flash memory stick (SE9 DTSE9H32GB), Bargain price of £14.45. 45p per Gigabyte!

I recently bought three of these new super skinny USB memory sticks by Kingston.
They are 32GB capacity, Which is a massive amount of storage space, that's only 45p per Gigabyte !

The best thing about this model is the case is only as wide as the USB connector its self so if you don't have a lot of space around your USB sockets on your PC or laptop then this is the perfect solution.
Also there is no cap or loose bits that can be lost or snapped off in use or transit.
It has a large hole at the other end so you can put it on your keyring.
The case is made from a single extruded bit of robust aluminum not plastic like most USB sticks.

Here is a photograph of it so you can see how nice and compact this 32GB stick is compared with my previous USB stick (a 16GB Kingston model) . As you can see the 32GB one is super thin and no cap to loose or bits to break off.
Here is the new 32GB Kingston USB memory Stick and my old 16GB above it for size comparison.
4GB file limit - How to solve this common issue.
I suggest formatting it in NTFS so you can put large files on it. If you format it at FAT32 then remember you can't copy large files onto it. If you copy a file which is over 4GB it will show the rather misleading message "There is not enough free space on the drive". If you get this warning even though you have lots of free space then this is the reason. Reformat it as NTFS to solve the problem.
