Great

Pros: I've owned several of the Sandisk USB drives from 1gb to 8gb and every one has been outstanding. I removed U3 from some but have found it useful for many things so keep it on the latest one I have.
Pretty fast although not the fastest USB drive I have.
Out of the 20 or more that I've bought I've yet to see a problem.
Highly recommended

Cons: The slide mechanism is a little sensitive. If you are pressing on the release while trying to plug it in it will retract. Easily avoided by holding it by the sides but slightly irritating. Other than that it's perfect.

Overall Review: I work on ships and once I dropped a 4gb model in the bilge (oily, salty water at the bottom of the ship). It soaked in the bilge for about a week before I fished it out. I washed it with fresh water and then alcohol and it's been working perfect for almost a year.
I buy these 5 to 10 at a time and take them to friends overseas. They are always thrilled.

Vista Problems

Pros: ReadyBoost is great. Ease of use is great.

Cons: Purchased two of these, first one installed fine and is currently connected to my computer. Vista Ultimate 64 now will not recognize more than one flash drive. I've tried the other that I purchased, along with others that I have. They all work on my XP computer, but only the first one on Vista.

Overall Review: SanDisk technical support was kind, but did not have an answer to my problem.
If anyone out there has a solution please let me know.

Excellent

Pros: Very durable, No cap to lose. Fast, durable, and reliable.

Cons: Keeps coming off the key chain and the loop for the key chain finally broke.

Overall Review: This has truly been put through the ringer. It's been through the wash once and no data was lost, it's been left out in the cold rain for a few days after falling off key chaing and still works perfectly. I have dropped it several times yet every time I use it it still amazes me.

USB Thumb Drive

Pros: Fast data transfer rate. While not the most expensive (got mine on black friday) you can beat the price vs. performance. While U3 isn't all that great its still very useful. Can be removed if you'd like.

Cons: -

Overall Review: Haven't had any problems with it yet but I know that Thumb Drives that are retractable are rather delicate so if your not careful you can break them pretty easy.

neat little drive

Pros: no cap to lose, easy to see activity light, works, included security option (via U3.. Windows Only).

Some people don't seem to like u3 I have found it quite useful, I got a 3rd party ap (package factory) that allows you to converte apps / EXE to U3 formate

Cons: slightly concerned about the longevity of the retractable USB mechanism.. but is fine so far.

Casing could be more robust

Overall Review: if you don't like the U3 u can get rid of it easily. I really like it for the AV, Skype, FF, Thunderbird.. now my own U3 MAME app i built with the PackageFactory app.

I got this drive for about the price of the 1GB model on a BF doorbuster sale elsewhere.

Works great, tough

Pros: I guess the thing I am most impressed with is its durability, I have used mine dozens of times a day on numerous computers for about a year I guess, keep it on my key chain and fiddle with it in my pocket all the time. Even with all that use and abuse it still works perfectly and looks almost as good as the day I got it. Price is good, wish it was that cheep when I got mine :)

Cons: The ring that holds the drive to what ever u put it on (u can see it in the bottom left of the pic newegg shows) is attached to the drive by a small metal bar that is recessed in to 2 grooves in the plastic of the drive, I know it was completely my fault but one time I pulled the drive out of a computer form the side and pulled it to me as I did so, and the little bar thing popped out of the plastic holes. This would probably not happen to the vast majority of ppl reading this but just wanted to know that it can happen (I fixed it easily, just took some needle nose pliers and popped it back in to the holes, had a friend pry the 2 sides of the drive a little so it would go in easer, np now)

Overall Review: I come in contact with many many other usb flash drives and even though I’ve never run a actual test on the drive to clock its speed it is obvious to me that it is much faster then the majority of the others I have seen, actually it seems to me that it is faster then all but 1 that I have seen, and it was a small drive built for speed.

Vista Ruin This

Pros: Fast, large and capless on XP. Work great.

Cons: Vista doesn't open it.

Overall Review: It is worthless to me because Vista doesn't support the software on the flashdrive. It won't let me open the drive even that I formated it.

Good for RB and programs

Pros: Good read/write rates, was able to format as NTFS using vista. Comes with program enabling to run programs directly off the flash drive. It can be reformatted to recoop the lost memory do to virtual CD function(doing so will disable the feature)

Cons: Might be possible to wear out the flick open feature due to constant opening and inserting into USB slot.

Overall Review: virtual drive feature is nice, but I think it should be an online download option instead of having it preinstalled on flash drive.
