Remember floppies (like the ones from 16 Candles?), yeah, even the harder ones that you still see today gathering dust in your best friend's home office? They were easy weren't they? You pop it in, you drag and drop some files onto it, or save to it, you yank it out of the PC, and away you go. Well that ain't what flash drives are like. Flash drives seem easy, but are really more complicated than your mother-in-laws feelings.
First the good things:
1. Opens beer bottles GREAT!
Seriously, this thing must really be made out of titanium, cuz I keep on opening imported bottles with it (domestic are all twist-offs) and it's stronger than Superman's pelvis bone. This alone makes the Cruzer worthy of purchase-- assuming it works for the INTENDED purpose.
2. 1 Gig is all you'll need Desk-Jockey!
Seriously, if you need more than 1 Gig, you're downloading too many videos from the internet that you wouldn't want your wife to...
I purchased two units from Amazon. One turned defective after about 10-15 times of useage, with the error message "USB device not recognized" from XP. I have data on it that I need! I am afraid to use the other one as it has the same product code (some kind of batch id) on the unit. Sandisk's customer support promises to replace the defective one but won't replace the other as it still 'works'. I tried to persuade them (two customer support reps at two different times) to replace both of them so prevent future hassel but they did not agree. When I purchased this unit, I was lured by the gloss and glitter surrounding this model and the name of SANDISK, and paid a premium over other similar products on the market. Considering the large number of defective units (the customer service reps recognize it) they should parhaps have gracefully recalled the defective batches.
I bought a SanDisk Cruzer Titanium just before Christmas, largely based on good reviews ... at the time. About a month ago, the sliding mechanism started getting caught up on the casing. In the past few weeks, I started having problems with drive recognition when disconnecting it from either my home or work computers (XP and 2000, respectively). Last night, I started having problems reading the drive altogether. I was able to access it one more time and copy all the files over to my hard-drive and then ... poof! ... no more blue light, no more drive recognition.
I'm sorry, Jim ... she's dead.
It's a nicely designed product. But a survival rate of three months does not - a valued product - make.
