Summary: I intended to use this device solely for pc imaging. I cannot do that due to the Fixed Disk configuration of the device. I would like to exchange for an updated drive with the Removable Disk configuration.
Pros: Very fast, nice device.
Cons: If was aware of the issue Sandisk was having with their media I would have steered towards another brand. Imaging pc's via usb was my intent, here is note to Sandisk CS:
Excerpt: Going from my literally, little 4 GB flash drive to this is a speedmazing. The flick to open threw me for a little bit. Further, you might need to hold it for some computers, still, this is worth every penny. I'm really saving time on data transfers. This thing did a whole backup of key systems from scratch faster than the old did for a very minor partial data set.<br /><br />I'm very happy to have this now.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast, High Capacity, Portable, Reliable
Excerpt: I always like to keep a flash drive on my keychain, and before I bought this it was a small PNY Hook. It wasn't really fast or particularly durable, but it was good enough.<br /><br />The SanDisk Cruzer is super fast by comparison, even though I mostly use it on USB 2.0. I've never had any recognition issues yet, but I'd imagine it won't have much issue since it has a casing around it.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Set Up, Fast, Fun To Use, Highly Compatible
Pros: Now that all of my computers have USB 3.0 ports, I am in the process of selling my 2.0 drives and replacing them with 3.0 drives. Many of my older flash drives were SanDisk of which I had never experienced a failure -- so when I spotted the SanDisk Extreme 16 GiG on sale for $19.54, I bought one to benchmark.
