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.
Conclusion: So how well did the SanDisk Extreme Cruzer Contour 8GB flash drive perform in today's testing? The bundle that SanDisk supplied with the Cruzer Contour was "par for the course", and the inclusion of the professional faux leather pouch was a nice touch. The Cruzer Contour as a whole is very attractive, comfortable to use and definitely a speedy little beast. The retractable USB plug also mean that there isn't going to be any issues with dust and/or lost protective caps.
