Pros Good U3 software, large capacity (2 Gb), fast read and write speeds
Cons Plastic casing
Summary I have had this 2 Gb jump drive for about a week and love it. I like the retractable connector. The U3 software turned out to be powerful and secure with its password option. The price after rebate at Circuit City was about $40 before tax.
The horror stories about slow write speeds that almost stopped me from buying this drive turned out to be fables, at least in my experience. Although I haven't clocked it, the write and read speeds are very satisfactory.
All in all, this is an inexpensive, practical jump drive with lots of room to store files.
Pros Very small, easy to carry around. Dependable!
Cons Bundled software.
Summary This is the best little flash drive I've ever owned! I carry it around with me everyday. Because I have it in my pocket I have accidentally washed it twice and it still works great! About the bundled software, you can actually go to the SanDisk's website and download a removal tool that completely removes this software.
Pros Easy app download, cheap, slide drive with no cap
Cons Easily damaged, relatively slow
Summary The SanDisk Cruzer Micro is an all around solid drive with many things going for it. It has easy app download and a good interface, and also the capless design is useful. The problem with this drive is that it's fragile. I dropped one of these onto the concrete and that was all she wrote. It knocked some of the USB connectors out of alignment and damaged the drive so much it was too corrupted to use. This is a solid, cheap flash drive for local use, not some hardcore brick. The transfer speed could be better too.

Pros Cheap, retractable
Cons scraches easily, slow file transfer
Summary Yes it is a bit on the slow side, but i really like the retractable design (much better than a cap that will get lost). I threw it away by mistake while cleaning out my car, and when i found it in the dumpster in 2" of dirty water I was worried that it would not work anymore. I let it dry and it is fine.
Pros It is small and the programs it comes with are great
Cons none ,well it is a bit slow
Summary For me it is the best USB you can have. It is small so you can carry it in your pocket, the retractable USB connector makes it easier to carry and you don't have to worry about your lost cap. The U3 program is really cool it is like having a smaller version of Windows in your USB, the programs include Skype, CruzerSync, HP Photosmart, Avast! Antivirus and Signup Shield. Well... after so much good, it is maybe not as fast as other USB's but if you are not going to use it for downloading super high resolution videos or storing like twenty Excel sheets it works pretty good and look at the price it is cheaper than the most USB's I bought it for $27.00.
