Insanely slow write speeds spoil this small USB flash drive

Mr Baz, Amazon
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: I picked one of these up in the bargain bin of a local shop with the idea of using it as a "key ring" USB memory stick. The size of the Cruzer Edge is ideal for that purpose a tiny footprint and retractable tip avoids the problem of losing the cap. Build is "merely acceptable" it's not caused any problems to date, but it's not particularly well made either the plastic cut out hole is larger than it needs to be, and the casing is a bit thin it might not last longer term...

Great for securing your data, but ...

Mojo, Amazon
8 January 2015
  • Summary: I like the software that is provided for securing your data. My only issue with the device is that the plastic housing is very weak, broke it while keeping the device on my key ring; now it is more difficult to keep up with.

Slow and sharp-edged

Kaput Ink, Amazon
3 October 2014
  • Summary: Transfer speeds are completely inadequate for a flash drive of this size, it takes over half an hour to fill it! The mechanical design is also inconvenient.

Poor retracting action

Leon Baradat "Homebrewer", Amazon
9 December 2013
  • Summary: We bought several of these for the office. While they work ok in terms of data transfer, they're awkward to use because the retractable plug *retracts* when you try to plug it into a USB port. Because it isn't released by pushing down on the red part (you simply pull it back), it doesn't stay locked in place--so in order to plug it in you have to physically push the red part in as you plug in the drive. Not good.

Do not get plastic flashdrives

Ryan Lester, Amazon
7 November 2013
  • Summary: I bought this from Bj's in a 4 pack for school. They worked great for the first two months. Then one simple bump the flashdrive is broken. The board cracks and the plastic outer shell falls off. This happened twice. (I boght 4 pack) Not only that you have to put it in and take it out a few times for the computer to recognize. They are good if you plan to use them in a desktop and never take them out. But other then that do not buy.

Poor product

Mitch, Amazon
1 July 2013
  • Summary: This is probably the worst flash drive I've had to date. While I do like the features it has (Very cheap, able to put on keyring, small and compact), they are all overshadowed by how incredibly slow its transfer rates are. To transfer 6-8 GB to it takes a minimum of 30 minutes, in my experience. While it's very cheap in price, you definitely get what you pay for.

User Review

Mackthedog, Walmart
9 February 2013
  • Summary: I bought this to replace my Verbatim encrypted flash drive. I found Sandisk's Secure Access software to be cumbersome and not particularly user friendly. In order to edit a file, the software requires the file be removed from the "protected area" into a common area. When finished, the file needs to be moved back into the encrypted area.

Worse than previous generation

A. Yap, Amazon
15 January 2013
  • Summary: This new Sandisk Cruzer Edge is a disappointment. Slower and less durable than previous models. Instead of usual metal USB plug, the plug is made of thin plastic. I wouldn't be surprised if it eventually cracked or snapped off while plugging it in. Pros: Small size Cons: Slow read and write speeds. Cheap plastic USB plug.
