4 out of 5 eggsSlow

This review is from: SanDisk Ultra Backup 16GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) AES Encryption Model SDCZ40-016G-A46

Pros: Encryption, capacity, price, secure.

Cons: Even with no encryption the disk write times is slow. Fairly large for a 'thumb' drive.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's good

This review is from: SanDisk Ultra Backup 16GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) AES Encryption Model SDCZ40-016G-A46

Pros: it's a USB flash drive with included backup software, sleek design

Cons: It is physically large so it will block USB ports near the flash drive

Other Thoughts: Don't think I will be using the backup software included with the flash drive

1 out of 5 eggsToo slow! It tests my patience.

This review is from: SanDisk Ultra Backup 16GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) AES Encryption Model SDCZ40-016G-A46

Pros: 14.9 GB Large capacity. Nothing Else.

Cons: This drive has 14.9GB capacity. I got this for movie file transfer. However, when I tested this for movie file writing, Sandisk showed slowest transfer rating:
(700 avi file transfer with my available flash drives (all USB2.0)): Transcend (8GB) was 9.7 MB/sec, PNY (8GB) was 8.4 MB/sec, HP (4GB) was 7.7 MB/sec. SanDisk (16GB) was 4.42 MB/sec.) I am not sure whether this one is defective but Sandisk was the slowest.
Further, I contacted with the SanDisk customer service but the service was horrible and they didn' reply when I requested the replacement.
I won't buy SanDisk again.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat backup drive

This review is from: SanDisk Ultra Backup 16GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) AES Encryption Model SDCZ40-016G-A46

Pros: Very simple and easy to use. Only need basic computer knowledge to load installed software onto your computer. Once you have backed up the computer, then each backup only adds what was added to your files making the backup process take only minutes.

Cons: I really have no "cons" Only that it could have been made with a metal case instead of plastic, but that would have added to the cost.

Other Thoughts: I have used other more bulky and difficult to use back up devices, but this is by far the easiest and most convenient to use. I have bought two from newegg and already have recommended this drive to my friends.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Prodct

This review is from: SanDisk Ultra Backup 16GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) AES Encryption Model SDCZ40-016G-A46

Pros: Nice capacity and reasonable price. 5 year warranty from Sandisk. Robust and user friendly backup software. No lid to loose. Backup button and LED. There is a place for lanyard

Cons: Comes with the obsolete U3 software. Backup software not included. You have to download it from Sandisk support site. I wish they sell it without the U3 software and backup software installed

Other Thoughts: Great Value. Probably the best USB Flash backup solution

4 out of 5 eggsNice solution.

This review is from: SanDisk Ultra Backup 16GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) AES Encryption Model SDCZ40-016G-A46

Pros: Easy setup of backup utility (once the backup utility is located). Nice solution for taking sql database backups off-site daily.

Cons: Finding the place to be to setup your backup options first time through isn't the most obvious, but not as bad as the people with the 64 gb version seem to think in their reviews.

Other Thoughts: Needed a thumb drive in a pinch and didn't get to purchase this from newegg. I would definitely get the 32 or 64 gb version if I had time to order it in. Was looking for a way to store my sql full and log backups offsite without messing with a tape drive (personal dislike for those) or having to switch out my network attached backup drives (didn't want to risk damage with extra handling), and this little drive fit the bill. After initial setup it has been very handy so far, but time will tell on toughness.

This review is from: SanDisk Ultra Backup 16GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) AES Encryption Model SDCZ40-016G-A46

Pros: An excellent product. Attractive design, handy software.

Cons: BEWARE: The U3 backup software isn't compatible with Kensington MouseWorks. I wish I could use it, but I returned mine because my trackball is more important to me.

4 out of 5 eggsI WANT MY LANYARD

This review is from: SanDisk Ultra Backup 16GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) AES Encryption Model SDCZ40-016G-A46

Pros: Retracts into casing. More software than I need. Informative orange activity light.

Cons: Doesn't come with that cool lanyard that some of their others used to come with. I mean, come on. It's just a frackin lanyard.

Pros: 16GB of encrypted storage!
Great price from Newegg
Decent tech support from SanDisk
