5 out of 5 eggs Cruizer 4GB - Retractable USB 12/19/2007

This review is from: SanDisk Cruzer Micro 4GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model SDCZ6-4096-A10RB

Pros:

FAST! Easy to use. Works as advertised. I am using this with Windows XP PRO. Goodbye CD-RW and DVD-RW (ABANDONED THEM!) Economical. FAR FASTER than the fastest recordable CD or DVD disc - no coasters to worry about. Once its copied - its there. Done and done.

Cons:

U3 Launchpad adds a layer of complication and can be confusing for some. I recommend: UNINSTALL (instructions included). Actual formatted space is LESS than 4GB, true space is 3.8GB with FAT32). I wish they had 16GB drives THIS FAST and at this price! The U3 Launchpad gives a FALSE WARNING about disconnecting the drive before "Shutting down" properly. As long as you dont rip out the USB drive BEFORE a file transfer is completed - you are A.O.K.

Other Thoughts:

I had been using ReWritable CD-R's and DVD-RW's for the longest time. Sometimes to transfer a small 4MB file, other times a few GB. I got frustrated building PC's and having to work with multi-session DVD's that would be unreadable after awhile. I WAITED TOO LONG TO BUY A USB DRIVE and its so much easier. This also can be used in some in-Dash Car Stereo's that have USB connectors for music. Think of the potential! ;-) Question: Can anyone look up the Read/Write Cycles for this unit? Flash Memory DOES have a FINITE life.
