SanDisk Cruzer Titanium Plus USB Flash Drive Review
28 October 2008
Summary: Realistically, SanDisk isn't really doing anything revolutionary with the SanDisk Cruzer Titanium Plus on the hardware side of things. Read and write speeds are pretty much in line with the rest of the competition and the inclusion of U3 is nothing to write home about.
Pros: Solid metal construction, Trusted slider mechanism means no lost caps, Automatic online backup system, Consistent read and write speeds
Cons: Online backup is only a six month trial, Not a huge fan of U3, Online backup can be very slow, Only available in 4GB and 8GB (for now)
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'...
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.
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
