Nice Product Almost . . .

Summary: The Sandisk 8GB Cruzer Titanium is a definite improvement over my little 2GB Micro, but the U3 software is still full of bugs and is very difficult to remove. With the U3 removal tool being Sandisk's number one download you would think they would have figured it out by now. On the positive side, the 6 months of fee online backup is a nice convenience, but after 6 months that there is a subscription fee to get your data (which incidentally is not encrypted).
Pros: 1 - Excellent Design 2 - Price dropped significantly (since original release) 3 - Software included: Encryption option, outlook synchronization, backup option. (Note: Some of the software is trial) 4 - Titanium finish, impact resistant (up to 2000 lbs.)
Cons: For a flash drive that claims to be high-speed, it hasn't worked on any of the 5 computers USB 2.0 ports. Ironically, I have a USB Extension 1.1 & USB Hub (also 1.1) and it will only work perfectly in USB 1.1 mode. BTW, it hates the front USB hookup
Pros: can stand up to the worst beatings. titanium gets a worn cool look after a couple of months. don't use the apps - never needed em, always reliable, always detected by a plethora of different desk/laptops
Cons: only in 512mb size. c'mon sandisk, make a gig or 2
