It'll likely work, but who knows for how long. Flash drives really aren't that expensive to begin with, you might as well get a name brand one.

A 2GB Flash Drive will run you about $8 at Newegg.com or TigerDirect.com

If you want advice on the size, what do you want to use the flash drive for? If you're planning on using it as a installation module (System ISO) then you'll want atleast 8GB. If you're planning on using it as a Readyboost module (Flash RAM) then you'll want 1-1.5 x your current amount of RAM.

Considering the massive typo in the picture of the package, would you trust it? Also look at the weight of it under product details. 1.4 kg? Maybe if they had their foot on the scale. May only be 1.50, but to many inconsistencies to be taken seriously.

It will probably be good for your intended limited use.
