The one I am using for my 'experiment' is a Kingston 8GB unit.

The other ones which I have are Corsairs - from 1 - 16GB - not only 
faster but also have a 10-year warranty.

But then, it all depends on what is stated in the small print, isn't it? 
:-) (and if you keep the receipt in a book, eg, because the print will 
fade within a shortish time if exposed to light).


Attorney:   All your responses MUST be oral, OK? What school did you go to?
Witness:    Oral.
