    I have been a Sony Micro Vault user for a few years now.

    My most recent one is the 2 gig version.

    I have read a lot of reviews complaining about the speed of these models. My 2 gig is slower then my older microvaults, but I got used to it.

    Anyone have any experience with the 8 gig? I plan on getting it cause of the deal at Staples.

    I got a 4GB Micro Vault a few months ago and it was really slow. It was even slower than my 512MB SanDisk Cruzer Mini, which was still pretty fast after a few years. So I returned the Micro Vault and a 4GB Cruzer Micro and I got my speed back. :)

    Haven't tried the 8 GB, but my 1 GB (same design) is slower than molasses.

    Does anyone know why these devices are so slow?

    Someone made up a story about a bad batch of something but that reviewer was from a while ago.
