Summary: The flash drive at 128 mb was too small to hold a 7 minute memorial video of my brother. Several people wanted a copy so I ordered several. Don't know what I'm going to do with them now. Live and learn.
Summary: The 4.0 G SanDisk that was received was not the 4.0 G "Password Protected" SanDisk Flash Drive ordered. The 3 received did not have the Cruze U3 function which is San Disk "password" software. I have found out from SanDisk that they no longer make the 4.0 G with "Password Protection".
Summary: First off, the device works as expected as far as providing storage. There's really not much it has to do other than provide storage, but props for not failing at that or anything. The reason for the low score is simple: This device is extremely annoying.
Summary: Like Ravenjunk I bought the Gator, but the 1GB version, because I needed something in a hurry and trusted SanDisk. The U3 is so much fluff, it shows 2 drives one of which is the U3 hazzerai. You have to use the "disable this hardware" function to unplug it... Huh??
Summary: It works fine, yet as someone before mentioned, it's unusually harder to remove the cap for some reason. I purchased the 1 gig for a grade school student to use while they were at school (It's the same design).
Summary: Everything is okay, 2GB, pink, good looking very attractive, yet when I gave this USB drive to my gf, she had to put all her power and I mean all her power to take the cover off. Design flaw, or maybe only this piece is defective? not so sure, won't buy same again.
Summary: I've had no problems with reliability or anything like that, which is why it gets 2 stars instead of 1. The problem is that I use a Mac, and the U3 system is useless on Macs. It is also not removable, even by reformatting the drive.
Summary: I am a loyal SanDisk user, but the U3 software that comes on this drive isn't for me and I sent it back. To cumbersome, and even though I found instructions and download, I couldn't remove or disable the software. I like things simple, and his item didn't meet my needs and I sent it back.
Summary: The u3 software either locked up the xp machines I tried it in or crashed them after initially plugging them in (4 home, 1 pro - NONE worked). After reboot, copying files would immediately crash explorer.exe and turn off the light.
Pros: eventually got it working after getting rid of u3. works on ubuntu
Cons: ---- U3 !!! ----- cheap plastic feel to the stick - a cheapo special at a 10th the price of this one feels better than this thing (and worked out of the box to boot) I would have returned this immediately, but got as a gift.
Summary: The only thing keeping me from giving this a 1 is that it is pretty small, is fast and can hold 2gb of stuff.
Pros: Fast, 2gb, small
Cons: Used the U3 software to install Firefox, had some major issues with it. Couldn't run desktop Firefox at the same time, and when I removed the flash drive all my settings for firefox were deleted, as were all of my bookmarks.
