Pros Small, Strudy, Fast, Reliable
Cons Cap not captive - can get lost
Summary I purchased this drive after a bad experience with the Mini. The Mini I received was DOA and the vendor took it back. I was glad becasue it was cheap feeling and not sturdy. The Micro is VERY well made. All metal one-piece construction with a rubber sleeve for comfort and protection. It is very fast and has been a GREAT drive. They plastic connector on the end is sturdy and will not break off. Spend the extra 10 bucks and go Micro over the Mini!
Pros Very small; low cost
Cons Nasty software cannot be removed
Summary My 1 GByte cruzer micro has "U3" capability. This means it will infect your computer with some sort of software. I don't know what the software is supposed to do, or what it is doing on the sly, but it is causing me tons of headaches.
Instead of appearing as a standard drive, which was the case with my previous 256 MByte and 512 MByte SanDisk Cruzer Micro USB drives, this one appears as two drives. One of them is a CD drive and one is a regular drive.
After various attempts to delete the offending software, SanDisk tech support told me it could not be done. Meanwhile, I cannot use my USB CD/DVD reader.
I do not know what other harm the infection may cause, but I am not happy. I want my CD to work.
SanDisk tech support says:
"Unfortunately the software cannot be removed completely from your flashdrive."
SanDisk, of course, states that the added features are worth any problems that may arise. I just want my USB drive to be a drive, nothing more.
My suggestion is to find some other company's product that doesn't load things behind your back. There must be others that are just as small and cheap.
