I wouldn't even give them one star

Summary: We purchased a 4 pack of these thinking the ScanDisk products we've always purchased in the past were great quality, and now I'd rather have purchased another brand. They don't even fit into the USB ports on my computer, my husbands computer or on the media boxes we have. Don't bother wasting your money on this product, they'll probably break the things you'd use them in.
Summary: The packaging indicates these are USB3 Super Speed drives. They simply don't work and lock up my current iteration iMac with Thunderbolt and USB3. Plus they come with some crappy "security" software that only takes up space.
Summary: Some people don't like the U3 software but it works for me. In particular, I like their approach to encryption. I specifically bought this model because the description said it included U3. When I plugged it in, however, there was no U3. I am extremely disappointed. Note: Purchased in Nov 2010 from Digital Media Source.
Summary: The appliance comes with evil, unwanted, non-uninstallable software. Here is what it does: 1. Installs itself on your system without asking your permission first. It puts an icon in your tray. It pops up a window suggesting more software you can get. 2. It claims you can unstall the adware, but the uninstaller does not work. If you delete all the files, they magically reappear every time you put the device in the port. (This is a SPYWARE technique, and it is EVIL.) 3.
Summary: Warning: Don't install the "update" because it will erase all of your data! I have been using the Cruzer thumb drive for some time. I have never liked it because it installs software on my computer without my permission (is that legal?). I usually have other copies of the data on my thumb drive, but recently a hard drive failed at work so I used my SanDisk thumb drive to back up some important data.
Summary: The first time I plugged my new Cruzer drive, I discovered to my dismay that it automatically uploaded unexpected, unannounced and unwanted programs into my computer. Moreover, these proved nearly impossible to eradicate, not only from my computer but from the flash drive. Even reformatting the Cruzer wouldn't remove them. This is inexcusable. I've purchased many Sandisk products in the past, but I never will again. Obviously they can no longer be trusted.
This drive is TRASH! Died in less than 3 months!!!

Summary: I bought this drive because so many of the reviews on amazon.com were favorable. However, I've only had my cruzer drive for about 3-4 months and it is no longer working. One day I was using the drive and the computer stopped recognizing it and it stopped flashing. I initially thought it might be a computer issue and i switched computers but no luck. I've taken very good care of this drive so you can imagine my disappointment that it died in MONTHS!
