Pros Nice Features, like extra caps and lights up when being accessed.
Cons Failed after 4 Months. Failure was sudden: Working well on Thursday night, no light, no access on Friday morning. SanDisk offered to replace the 512MB Flash Drive at no cost. No help though for the 400MB of lost data.
Pros The price -- cheap, but for a reason.
Cons Doesn't work on all desktops.
Summary SanDisk support told me itthe flash drive would work if I went out and bought a usb hub with a power supply. So I spent more than $25.00 for a hub -- and it still doesnt work. Because it works with my laptop, they say it's fine and won't replace it. So I'm stuck. I've spent all this money for nothing.
Pros Works well until it fails
Cons 2 month life
Summary Worked well for a couple of months, now it no longer works at USB 2.0. No formatting instructions available anywhere. Built fairly well but the caps should not be a separate part, easy to lose.
Pros More than a floppy or CD and easier too! FAST!
Cons None that I've found
Summary Works great and stores plenty of stuff. A great alternative to floppies/CDs/anything else. Even my old IBM has USB ports. Before, I had to use floppies for that computer. Now I can use one medium for all my computers.
"Reliable drive"on by akira2
Pros Encryption, and comes with three caps.
Cons Caps, cheap string.
Summary Physically, this thing is on the bottom of my list. There is a losable cap, although they give you extras. I really do not like the fact that the string broke of the plastic (the plastic piece snapped)the second month I had it.
Hardware wise, it is a great drive. I do not know why there had been so many failures on the reviews here, but I had this product for around four years, and it had never failed. I even dropped it twice or thrice.
Other than reliability, it performs what it says, even if it is not in the greatest speed. Encryption was a bonus, although I rarely use it.
Overall, it is a good and solid drive.
