Ok, but comes with a drawback

steveSATX, Costco
8 March 2014
  • Summary: The drives work ok for copying files but if your intention is to use them for Windows Backup or Media Recovery Creation on a new pc be aware that it might not work. Sandisk made these to be Windows 8 certified which forces the drive to added as a local disk instead of a removable disk. They aren't detected in the Media Creation program on my new Windows 8 HP Desktop.
  • Pros: works ok for saving files
  • Cons: can't use for backup / recovery media creation

Too sleek?

  • Excerpt: This is an aesthetically pleasing drive that functions well on both Mac and PCs. My one complaint is that it's almost too sleek. I feel like I have to jam it into the USB port on my Mac since there are no ridges on the device to tell me when it's been pushed in far enough. I'm worried that I might damaged the port.

Large space, but very slow

Konstantin S., Newegg
14 March 2013
  • Summary: The encryption software that comes on the drive is slow on large files, and you have to install part of it on your computer. To remove the drive by ejecting it first, you first have to stop the software or you will be getting warnings that the drive is in use. So I just removed it, and will use third party one. The second software is ads, so don't install it.
  • Pros: Very large space (119 actual gigabytes). I always wanted to own one. Now I do. :)
  • Cons: Very slow. Even after formatting for NTFS, I get steady average of 8Mb/s. It starts with 130 but then quickly falls.

Works.. But loose fitting

Joseph B., Newegg
29 November 2012
  • Pros: It's a solid piece of equipment. Meaning it does what it should.
  • Cons: The latch to hold the connector out is very weak. I don't know if it was just a fluke for mine, but after 2 or 3 inserts, I had to hold the connection slider every time I put it in whereas other USB drives that I had click into place and I'm able to push it in with one hand (not so with this one).

sluggish although formatted NTFS

Ann J., Newegg
12 November 2012
  • Pros: construction is more sturdy than the two other SanDisk I own, had the same capacity as before even after it was formatted NTFS, holds a lot, good price
  • Cons: SLOW! to write, slow to read, and therefore slow to mount. It took two and a half hours to fill it using a USB 2.0 port (to be fair, it was lots of tiny files ... the most demanding of any kind for any drive).

  • Pros: Very tiny. Can stay in USB drive all the time.
  • Cons: You can't remove the cap with your bare hands. There isn't enough surface to grip!

SanDisk Lowered the Bar...

Lura V., Newegg
5 July 2012
  • Summary: -Very slow, for a few seconds the write speed will be about 8 MB/s, then 6 MB/s, then it goes down to and stays at about 3.5 MB/s. My old drive averages 10-12 MB/s, fast considering its' age and that's still pretty good for USB 2.0. When I first moved files to this I was like "wow why is it taking so long?
  • Pros: -Reliable, haven't had a problem with that aspect yet
  • Cons: -Feels really cheap. My old drive has a "solid" feel to it
