Summary: Don't see the review I left before, so again... I don't like drives that come preloaded with "crapware", especially when it doesn't work, or DO anything for that matter. This drive crashed 3 computers, simply by plugging it in! It took out my home PC, the work PC, and a laptop - all by just plugging it into them. All were Windows XP Pro SP3. ALL required a reformat and reload of XP. I will never buy another of this manufacturer's product again.
Summary: I tried to return the SanDisk flash drive twice for either refund or exchange but the seller is not responding to my request. SanDisk Mircro Cruzer is supposed to be password protected. I even called SanDisk tech for help and told me that the item itself is defective. Now I'm stuck with it and lost my money.
Summary: 1. Shipping was sooo very slow. 2. The item was a lousy cheap substitute for the durable one displayed on the Amazon page. The substitute was not what I wanted, they should have shipped the product they advertised. 3. Their return policy is iron-clad in their favor, and with their real slow shipping lower priced items are not worth sending back expecially if you count shipping cost and aggravation. 4. BEWARE of this seller, and PLEASE check their return policy. 5.
Summary: I bought this because of two reasons. Huge capacity (8gb) and Capless design (Never have to worry about loosing a cap). I really enjoyed using it and really really liked it. But sadly and luckily, it stopped working exactly after 30 days (I bought it from Bestbuy, which had 30-day return policy. SO I at least got my money back although what's stored inside was priceless....!!!) I ALWAYS use safe removal feature of the Windows.
Summary: This is the worst experience I ever had with a flash drive. Four corrupt files later (never had that happen before), it required formatting(!). Great! Now, EVERYTHING is GONE. But wait...that's what Tech Support told me to do. Happily, I had most of the important stuff backed up...but WOW. And when I explained that I wanted a refund, they told me it was WORKING FINE!!! FINE?!? My data is GONE! How is that FINE?!
Summary: Arrrrgh!!! I hate this stupid thing! Several hours worth of work is gone forever because I saved it on my new SanDisk 8GB Micro drive. I used it for a month or so with no problem. Last week, I had my first corrupted file. Now I have dozens of corrupted files! Thankfully, I have a backup of most (but not all) of them. If I didn't have a backup, I'd just be out of luck. I will NEVER buy another SanDisk product.
Summary: I was given this product as a birthday gift, so it wasn't possible to return it. The product worked well on my Mac and I used in on the PC's at school. I can still retrieve my data from the drive, but the problem is, that the drive is telling me that there is no more room left for anything else. This is remarkable, since all that I stored on the drive was about several dozen word documents over the course of 30 days.
INCOMPATIBLE WITH MACINTOSH. If you read this, and buy it anyway, you WILL suffer needlessly, and I told you so.

Summary: I own a nikon D90 and canon S90, so I've become quite familiar with sandisk SDHC cards. They're handy, durable little things, so I thought nothing about ordering one of their flash drives, the Sandisk Cruzer 8gb. I'm afraid that the whole ordeal has really, and I mean really, turned me off of Sandisk and their products. The Cruzer has this thing installed on it, called U3 software, that kind of is a code of plain suck.
U3 technology to automatically load software on your PCs

Summary: I'm not a big fan of technology that tries to automatically load software on my PC, especially without asking my permission. I deleted the software Sandisk preloaded on the USB flash drive, but wait: this device mounts as *two* USB drives, and one is read-only and looks like a 5 MB CD-ROM to the OS. It has an autorun script and zipped software on it, and the only way I've found to keep it off the computer is to not use this product.
