Summary: Flash drives are supposed to help you back-up your files and prevent data loss. This flash drive lasted me a week and then didn't even register in my brand new laptop's port. Lost ALL my files. What a headache!

Summary: Sorry, will not buy a SanDisk Cruzer ever again. 2 failed drives out ot the shipment of 5 (one not recognized by computer, one reported as unformatted by Windows and and would not format NTFS or FAT32. Years ago I bought a SanDIsk Cruzer Titanium 512MB - it failed after 1 month's light use.
Summary: Rather disappointed with these drives considering it had the Sandisk name. But, I guess even Sandisk has drives that are "you get what you pay for." When I saw this twin pack of 32 GB drives for $40, I jumped on it. But, the drives seem to copy really slow, and often times, copying large files would fail altogether. I work with several different models of PC's and workstations at work and some of the PC's won't even detect the drive.
Summary: I bought it and was excited to finally have storage to play gtav. I put it in my xbox 360 and uploaded it and it didn't have enough storage even though its 8 gb and gtav is exactly 8 gb. And also i found it way cheaper on other websites. I cant even return it as i opened it already.
Summary: No way to attach this to anything. Difficult to see the light that indicates the drive is being read or copied to. Seems to work fine, but I like the features of attaching a drive to a lanyard, and seeing the drive light up when I save something to it.
Summary: When I got this I planned on using it primarily as a financial backup but ran into a lot of problems trying to save data - for some unknown reason I was able to use it only ONCE and ever since my computer does not recognize it and it is useless to me now
Summary: Nobody buys a bamboo drive other than for the novelty and differentiating factor. They got that one feature wrong, thus the low rating. As it has been covered in a few other reviews, the design is very poor, so prepare to lose the cap very fast. It could have been a relatively easy fix by doing the same thing as for the actual storage: place a good friction cap inside the bamboo and glue it to the bamboo.
Summary: I am a SanDisk fan. I have always used there products and have been happy with the speed and reliability that they offered. Recently I upgraded from the SanDisk Cruzer 16GB to the 32GB. Right away I noticed it was taking longer to move files. Also from time to time it would just stop during transfer. I left it on all night thinking it would finish and it never did. I Decommissioned that one and bought another a few months later locally this time.
