Summary: SanDisk Cruzer Titanium Plus boasts an innovative set of features, fast data transfers, and a complimentary six-month online backup subscription, but we're put off by the subsequent annual service fee and the expensive retail price, especially when other drives at equal capacity cost much less.
Pros: Free six-month online backup subscription; fast transfer speeds; sturdy metal casing; innovative features; excellent warranty service.
Cons: Expensive; backup software only works with Windows.
Excerpt: Once viewed as sleeper products, pocket-size USB storage devices seem to be gaining momentum. Devices like the new SanDisk Cruzer ($59.99 to $199.99 direct, depending on the amount of memory) provide users with an alternative storage method to limited-capacity floppy disks and larger, less portable alternatives, such as Iomega Zip drives and media. The Cruzer goes one step farther, however, by using removable SecureDigital (SD) media.
SanDisk Cruzer Titanium Plus USB Flash Drive Review
28 October 2008
Excerpt: SanDisk has long since upheld its strong reputation for making good flash memory products. In fact, SanDisk holds the patents to a number of flash memory technologies, so it makes sense that the company is also known for making some of the best stuff on the market.
Conclusion: SanDisk has been a big and common household name ever since the introduction of flash memory into mainstream consumer hands. When the name 'CompactFlash' was mentioned during the times when majority of electronics such as PDAs and cameras used it, many will associate it with the name 'SanDisk' automatically. Fast forward to 2006, SanDisk is one company with the most experience in the flash memory market, and still remains as one of the major players within this industry.
Excerpt: We all need a good USB flash drive these days and those of us who invested in a drive several years ago may well now be looking for something newer, fresher, quicker and with a much larger capacity. With the introduction of useful USB focused extras like PortableApps size does matter as you can take almost all of your digital life with you on your stick! In this review I am looking at the Sandisk Cruzer Micro Skin USB Flash Drive in it’s 8gb form.
Pros: Nice tactile feel, Looks great, Major Brand, Good performance for its price
Cons: No cap retention mechanism – easier to loose, Cannot be partitioned or mounted as a hard drive
