"Works as advertised"on by forkboy
Pros Solidly built; nice green glow
Cons Easy to lose USB plastic cover
Summary Does what it is supposed to do. Can't say I notice that it's slow, but I don't have anything other than another SanDisk product by which to compare. Feels solidly constucted, but it may be easy to lose one of the plastic USB plug covers. I haven't lost one yet, but I can see how it would be such.
Bottom line: it's a flash-based storage device. What more do you really want it to do beyond storing stuff?
Pros solid plastic casing, like the little light, its small, comes wif a necklace, and...uhh...
Cons writing on it rubs off very quickley, loose the tops real quick (at least i do, but, i guess thats why they give u three of them), envcryption isn't all that great , thats all i can fit.
Summary i think i am going to upgrade to the 3 or 4 gb titaniam one, but am afraid to because of all the bad stories about static electricity wiping out all ur data. anyway, its ok. but be carful when using it in a laptop or desktop where it will stick out, u might bend the thing if you push it (i did, but i bent it back). if this is ur first usb flash drive, then i would recommend it. if you are using it for pictures and music and stuff, get the 1gb at least but if u r using it for word, excel, or publisher files, or anything like that, get the 512mb or something.
Pros cheap, small
Cons cheap, fails with impecable timing...
Summary Dont think I'm writing a bad review because I'm stupid and broke this usb drive. This product has failed on me three seperate times. I've allready gotten 2 warantee replacements, for the two other times it failed and ruined my day/week/month.
the first time i thought i did something wrong, maybe i was too rough on it or i didn't eject it. Second time i thought was a component failure cause it showed up as a 0 byte drive. This time there is no reason for it to have failed.
If you want reliable go somewhere else!
Pros Great prices for decent storage capacity
Cons No frills...
Summary Has worked perfectly ever since I purchased it about 8 months ago. Never failed, fast, convenient. I run programs that I've installed onto the drive all the time. The included programs were pretty sparse, and not useful. Probably would have like them to be not included at all b/c they made it a disappointing experience.
Pros easy to use, good enough for home and office files
Cons not really durable
Summary This has been a fairly good flash drive for me. It isn't very fast, but it holds a lot and works consistantly. After keeping it with me for a few weeks, the plastic caps for the end did crack and break, and I hear a rattle in the thin plastic case. It still works fine however. I would recommend this as a good first flash drive.
