Pros Convenient sync software; durable case
Cons Drive itself is not durable
Summary Simply put, this drive performs very well, as the CNET reviewers suggest, but it is *not* -- repeat *not*-- durable. It's ironic that they decided to house this feeble drive in a veritable coat of armor. My wife and I went through *three* drives in less than three months. We own other USB flash drives and have never faced data loss or drive crashes. In brief, our recommendation is that you stay away.
Pros Nice Utilties, design and performance
Cons Keychain ring a little difficult to come up
Summary After a lot of research I was stuck between Cruzer Titanium and Apacer Handy Steno HT203. My main preference was performance and design. Both of these flash drives are great in terms of no issues of losing caps. Titanium was a bit expensive but finally I got a very good deal at staples and bought it out for $40. Some users expreienced some issues that I didn't, mainly 1)It worked for me in all USB ports for my computer (I have front ones too), 2) As per arstechnica.com this drive is not bootable, but I was able to make it bootable and was able to boot. I used the known HP utiltiy; you do need a version of DOS so do make a DOS diskette handy, 3) Although the included software for synch and backup was trial initially, Sandisk has made it free and full functional in the new version for Cruzer titanium drives and believe me all three included utilities are worth the money. Moreover the software can also sych files and folders other than outlook in new version. 4) The drive never heated up as some reviwers experienced. The included keychain was a bit difficult to stuck in and I did scratch the drive a bit while doing that. Performance wise the drive ran three times faster on my machine compared to my friend's 1GB Apacer Handy Steno HT203. I cannot comment on the reliability of the drive as its too early for me, but you do get 5 years of warranty. Overall I am happy.
Pros Good fast device
Cons rushed out and bought a Cruzer Titanium for a number of reasons. I needed a new USB key and I was attracted to the included software. I liked having security since it's easy to lose these devices like I did my last one and I also liked having onboard so
Pros Love the no cap required Feature
Cons Price Point compared to similar capacity drives
Summary Best USB drive I have used till this date. It out lasted my other 5 drives in durability and it survived my 2-year-old “Bite Test” (only one that survived). Write and Read speeds are great. Solid performer!
Pros Fast and easy transfer of data
Cons Horrible tech support
Summary I have used the USB stick to transfer data from one of my laptops (Gateway with XP Home) to my other laptop (HP Omnibook 6100 with XP Pro). After having inserting the USB stick on my HP and the transfer of data it changed my drives out of the blue: USB became D (instead of E or F) and the CD ROM drive D became an inaccessible DVD drive under E. System restore did not remedy it and San Disk "Tech support" on the Internet is a better joke and on the phone they make lousy excuses with even lamer comparisions and contends that the CD ROM broke (suddenly???) and I would have to contact the manufacturer of the CD ROm drive; thus deny any responsiblity whatsoever! Stay away from these guys!Updated
I had used this Flash Drive and was not too happy with it. At one time it screwed my USB ports up at my HP laptop. Tech support was the pitts. As the instructions are not too clear, I was of the opinion that one can transfer data from Outlook to another computer with this Flash Dive; one can only use the Flash Drive to back the data up; why one can not transfer these data to another computer is beyond me?!
