Memorex FlashDisc: the floppy disk replacement?

updated 04:35 pm EDT, Thu August 10, 2006

Memorex FlashDisc

Sometimes advantages in flash storage are about more than just larger capacities. Making that storage more affordable is equally valuable, especially for students who can easily lose a flash drive that they might not have the money to replace. The Memorex FlashDisc confronts all these factors at once. A donut-shaped and brightly-colored design make for drives that are harder to forget and easier to hold in a busy classroom. More impressive is that the consequences of losing one are relatively trivial. $15 at the store will get a three-pack, guaranteeing that there will almost always be a spare ready to go. You would be forgiven for disbelieving the claim by Memorex that the FlashDisc is the definitive replacement for the old 1.44 MB floppy disk, however; at a $5 effective price for 16 MB of storage per drive, the FlashDisc is more expensive than an old 3.5" disk and not quite as useful as much more capacious (if also higher-priced) traditional flash drives.
