Customer Reviews

Easy to use, lots of space.
cma
The actual connector retracts into the device, which is nice as it protects it more than most others.
Guy in Ohio
It's a flash drive, it's used as storage space on my cousins Xbox Arcade, and works perfectly.

I usually don't review stuff i got off here b/c that'd be too many.
BUT i believe this is an interesting thing right here.
I have no comments on how this USB works, because it works perfectly fine for me.
I like that this doesn't need a cap because it goes into itself like a turtle.
The thing i wanted to post was that it survived the washing machine.
No i didn't realize i had it in my pocket and until i took everything out of the washer, it was just right there.
I was like, crap, $15 down the wash and then i'd have to replace it.
Surprisingly it worked, every other electronic item just dies in there!
That is the total point to this review, so if you just happen to forget it in your pocket, it may work! *I don't advise you to actually purposefully put your USB in the wash now, but you forget its in your pocket.*

This is a review of the SanDisk Cruzer 8GB USB Flash Drive. I thought I was getting a bargain deal on this drive for $13 a piece. Now I wish I hadn't bought it. The price was right, but the performance was a let-down.

The USB connector slides in and out of the protective black casing, and this newer model is physically distinguishable from its predecessor by its red "tongue" (the older unit that contained the U3 Launchpad had a white tongue). The orange indicator light on the thumb-lock is lit when it is connected to the computer, and flashes when data is transferred to/from the unit. There is an area to attach a neck cord, but does not come with one anyway. The drive came preformatted FAT32 and empty, and no longer comes with the U3 software that previously came with the older versions of this same flash drive. It works as a portable flash drive to carry files, but is not spectacular in terms of data transfer speed.

Pros:
- At 8GB, it can hold a lot of files
- Highly portable.
- Price is very reasonable (CHEAP!)

Cons:
- Poor Read AND Write speeds. However, this may not matter if you do not transfer huge amounts of files. If you just put a few files on it, and then just carry it around, this is one of the best USB flash drives for the money. I transfer over 3 GB of files every day, so I need a speedy USB flash drive.

Warning: Geek alert below!

BENCHMARK:

Using Flash Memory Tookit v2.0, I got fairly linear read/write speeds using various file sizes (1MB to 15MB). The average write speed was 2.4 MB/s, and read speed was 21.1 MB/s. Though the benchmarked read speed was relatively fast, the write speed was poor. The slow write speed may suffice if you do not write many files often.

I originally bought this to transfer data from an old Xbox 360 to the new "slim" type. It worked without a problem, but transfers were incredibly slow. I compared the speed of this unit on three difference PCs with other USB drives that I have.

My 5+ year old 2 GB Patriot transfers data at about 16 MB/sec. My 3+ year old 4 GB Kingston transfers data at around 26 MB/sec. This SanDisk Cruzer, however, transfers at an appalling 3 MB/sec! That's 1/5 the speed of a 5+ year old USB drive! And this is on a brand new 6-core, 3.2 GHZ system with USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 ports!

"Slow" does not begin to describe this drive. When a five-year-old USB drive can run rings around a brand new USB drive when it comes to performance, something is desperately wrong. I'll just stick with Patriot or Kingston USB drives. I'll never by a SanDisk Cruzer again.

I bought one of these because it was on sale. I would've preferred a SanDisk Cruzer Micro 8 GB Flash Drive instead, but I didn't know how much I would've preferred it until I bought this.

This version doesn't seem to be a replacement of the Micro, so I imagine it's faster, but there probably isn't a noticeable difference. The differences I noticed were aesthetic. This drive is pretty small, but it's slightly bigger than the Micro. I don't get the weird contour thing either. It's like a skewed parallelogram. The "switch" is the same way and I really don't think it makes it look any better. A more functional difference is the switch itself. The Micro's switch needed a moderate amount of pressure to get the drive to extend and about the same amount to retract. The regular Cruzer opens much easier, which I can't say I appreciate, and it may be a little harder to close than the Micro.

I'm sure you've been wondering as well, does this thing have a lanyard loop? Yes, it does. It's on the back so most pictures won't show it. It's definitely tighter than the Micro's lanyard hole. About the only thing I could get to fit it was an actual lanyard (this drive doesn't come with a lanyard by the way). The Micro comes with a small key ring at least, which I doubt would fit the Cruzer.

The Cruzer series goes up to 32GB as of this review (the Micro goes up to 16GB). So if you need one that big I'd say this is a good drive. If you need a smaller one I'd go with the comparably cheaper Cruzer Micro series.

I appreciate the SanDisk brand when it comes to storage and I have never had reason to mistrust it in terms of quality; however, the low price of this unit comes with a few penalties.

I actually bought this to transfer my account and save game information from my old (second generation) Xbox 360 to the new "slim" 360. It did that without a problem, and the 8 GB of storage was plenty for that purpose. The embedded LED that shines through the white slider is bright and very easy to see. Essentially, it does exactly what a USB stick is supposed to do in that respect.

The locking mechanism for the slide is a bit weak or perhaps "fussy" is the better word. There were a few times when I had to hold the slider in place in order to insert the drive into the USB port or else the plug would retract back into the case.

The most annoying thing about this drive is that it's ridiculously slow. I've tried using it in several different systems that I own, and none of them got more than 3 MB/sec out of this drive. A 2 GB Patriot USB drive of mine that's probably five years old transfers at roughly 16 MB/sec. A 4 GB PNY that's about three years old transfers at around 24 MB/sec. Yet this BRAND NEW SanDisk drive transfers at 3 MB/sec! That's completely unacceptable! (And I just verified all of these speeds as I was writing this review.)

At 3 MB/sec, it would take at least 90 minutes to transfer 8 GB worth of data to the USB drive then to the destination system. I could actually transfer that same amount of data with my 4 GB PNY - copy 4 GB to the drive, copy that to the other system, copy the remaining 4 GB, and copy that to the other system - in less time than it takes just to copy 8 GB to the SanDisk drive. That's absolutely appalling.
