Pros: Compact Size
Cons: First Try No Success
Summary: I just bought this yesterday, and copied some very important files to take with me to the office today. As I copied the files from my hard drive to the flash drive, the status bar showed everything working fine. Well, I got to work this morning and plugged it in ... urrrgghhh ... the file names and folders are there, but over half of the files are file size "zero" meaning they didn't copy correctly. Here I am forty miles from home with a bunch of useless files. I am HOPING that this is an isolated incident, otherwise I would have given this thing a "1" rating right off the bat. Regardless, it was not up to task on it's first outing and I'm up the proverbial creek without a paddle until I get home this evening.Updated
Okay, for those of you who read my review yesterday this is a followup. I went home last night and re-copied my files to the Sandisk Mini Cruzer. This time I double checked to make sure that all files registered and had content - they did. Sooo, I get to work today and attempt to download the files to my computer. Not once, but twice it froze up my computer to the point where I had to do a hard restart. I'm taking this hunk of junk back to the store on the way home tonight. I have had good luck with other Sandisk products, but this "piece" needs to go back to the drawing board. Two days of non-productivity thanks to this worthless thing. Sorry Sandisk, I'm buying another brand.Updated
So I stopped by the electronics store on the way home with the intent of returning my Sandisk Cruzer. Because I have faith in Sandisk products from previous experiences with them, I opted to exchange instead hoping that this unit was simply defective. Fingers crossed, the replacement unit seems to be up to task. No problems to this point. I think I may have purchased a defective unit, and am honorable enough to eat crow on this public forum. I still give it a five rating, though, until it can prove otherwise.
