Just about everybody has a flash disk of some description.

The TechSmart office is littered with the things, from relics of the past to the standard fair, given away at press launches. But if you’ve decided that your 128 MB no-name brand drive will no longer do the trick then it’s time to upgrade to a Sony MicroVault.

These Sony USB drives are available from 1GB all the way to 16GB and have a number of features that you won’t find on the el-cheapo versions.

For starters the MicroVaults have no caps, they simply click open like a ball-point pen. Apart from the great build-quality and design, Sony’s compression software stands out as the best feature of the MicroVault.

Virtual Expander will automatically compress and decompress data to and from your computer, allowing you to virtually store up to 3 times as much on one disk.
