Great for securing your data, but ...

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.
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.
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.
Summary: Review for: SanDisk Cruzer Edge 16 GB USB Flash Drives (SDCZ51EP-016G-AFFP) The slider does not lock when in open position. Every time I try to insert this flash drive into the USB port on my computer, it slides back inside. I have to hold the slider up in order to get it to go in. It works fine otherwise, but very annoying!!
Summary: I don't recommend this device. This drive is Too Slow. Writing rate is around 4.5MB/s. My other HP 8GB drive is 11MB/s. less than half speed. reading speed is 9MB/s this is a little bit better than writing but my HP 8GB drive is 25MB/s to read.
Summary: I bought one of these drives when I saw it in the big bin at Walmart for $5.97. For less than a dollar per gigabyte, I was willing to take the gamble. The drive is a little bit of disappointment; it's pretty slow, transferring (writing) a large file at about 4.3 MByte/second. The physical construction is also.. barely sufficient.
