Summary: In a group test primarily focused on security, the Sandisk Extreme Cruzer Contour was never going to come out on top. However, security features such as 256bit AES encryption and password-protection are available through U3 software, while this ReadyBoost-compatible drive is blazingly fast. Depending on your criteria, the Sandisk could top your list.
Conclusion: The SanDisk Cruzer Contour left a good impression. The drive has a nice build quality, feels a bit luxurious, has nice read/write speeds and features a retracting USB connector. If you like this drive I definitely recommend that you buy it, you won't feel disappointed. The Cruzer Contour 4GB has a MRSP of $99.99 and the 8GB version has a MRSP of $189.99. That's very expensive but fortunately you can find them for a lot less.
Excerpt: Costco had a sale on recently for the Sandisk Cruzer Contour USB key, and upon reading some good reviews, I picked up two 8GB sticks for about $25 each. The following image is really all you need to know.
