Summary: As a standard USB drive, this thing works perfectly. The Problem: As a micro drive it does not work. Most devices that you would plug a micro into will not read it. (Cell phone, Kindle, tablet) You can root your device to read the micro drive, but it is a process not for the novice and there are some risks. In most cases, rooting your device will void the warranty.
Summary: Micro usb port would NOT fit in my Samsung note 3 with 10,000maH battery and zero lemon case installed (case and battery are excellent btw got them here on amazon) other than that it works as expected with the standard usb port on my laptop. The sliding plastic covers that go over the ports are annoying as they rarely stay locked in place while plugging.
Summary: I have been a SanDisk fan for many years. I have Cruisers in every size, and have loved the solid design and secure way the unit retracts. So I bypassed other options and went for the more expensive SanDisk again this time. PRO: Electronically, it's a solid little unit with both a standard and a micro USB, so it can be moved from my computer to my Android, etc easily. CON: The picture looks like it will slide something like the Cruisers I'm used to.
Summary: Slick product, but unfortunately, it is not compatible with any of the Nexus devices I have. Bought the 64GB, but it does not work with Galaxy Nexus (Verizon), Nexus 7 (2012 and 2013) or Nexus 10. I don't have any other devices to try it with. Tried using the Nexus Media Importer from Google play store, but that does not support exFat. NMI requires FAT32 or older, and tells us to reformat it using a Windows machine.
Summary: Plus, the included back up software did not meet my needs. I went to retrieve a file one time and I had trouble locating it. Operator error for sure, but the trouble I had I found to be unnecessary. Other back up software works more efficiently.
Summary: In this age of supposed consciousness, the packaging on this product was obscene. Three flashdrives that would fit in the palm of a baby's hand came in a big box full of packing material and the blister pack was a double layer of cardboard that measures 10 inches by 15 inches. I didn't yet use the product (I gave up trying to get it out of the cardboard packaging and moved on to other things), but I've used these flashdrives in the past.
Summary: This drive worked great for around a year, but then it died unexpectedly. I was hoping this was a product that would last much longer than that. Luckily, I was only using it to transfer files between computers and did not use it to backup files. I've used many other SanDisk products in the past. This is the first SanDisk item that did not last until it became obsolete.
Summary: I have a 2GB Kingston microSD from a Toofer Tuesday Woot deal that works fine for all of the 5 minutes of 1080p video it can capture. This one was quite expensive and much newer and didn't seem to work without buffer underruns. I was very disappointed. I've always bought Sandisk in the past. I'm giving the Patriot a try next.
Pros: Boasts good speed/price ratio
Cons: Doesn't work well enough with 60D to do 1080p video without buffer underruns.
