    OK, so flash drives have been around long enough now to assess their relative merits. I've come up with eight metrics by which I judge them as follows:

    Secure Fastening - The device is useless if for any reason it won't stay on a key ring, it must have a metal attachment. I've had several flash drives that have had a cord (snapped) and plastic attachment (broken). The Cruzer Titanium has a secure metal ring and hence I'm confident that it will stay on my key ring.

    Dust Cover - Unsecured USB dust covers always get lost. Captive dust covers are best, the Cruzer Titanium USB interface retracts fully into the body on the flash drive. This is better than an unsecured dust cover but not perhaps as protective as a captive dust cover.

    Robust Design - Anything attached to a key ring must be robust, it will take some abuse sat in your pocket/purse with coins, keys etc. rubbing against it. The Cruzer Titanium scored very highly here, the titanium case is very strong; it looks solid and feels well made.

    Speed - Measuring the speed can be subjective, it can depend upon the PC to which it's attached, the operating system and the speed of the disk that the data is being read from. My XP laptop wrote a 195MB file to the Cruzer in 15 seconds, that's 13MB/sec - which is pretty good. It also read it back from in 8 seconds (24MB/sec).

    Size - The Cruzer is slim enough to enable other USB devices to be attached to adjacent USB ports, so important if you've only got two USB ports and one is taken up by your mouse.

    Capacity - Here's a shocker, my 8GB Flash Drive had 8GB of space on it. Remember that data is split into 512byte blocks and each block has an address, which takes up a little room, so you never get the full 8GB available for use.

    For the benefit of those readers looking for a recommend but don't know what U3 is, it's a program which purportedly gives better portability to (some of) your programs and their associated files, and it also includes some basic games and puzzles, etc. If left on the pen-drive, every computer you plug it into then 'synchronises with the drive, so you can transfer your files, play the games, etc. This remains in the computer ready for next time, though you obviously need the pen to make it work...

    I bought one of these because I do a lot of photography, using top end equipment, and have learned to trust the Sandisk memory cards. Others have failed, my Sandisk Extreme III cards just keep going, so I trust the manufacturer.

    The U3 software can readily be removed from the pen drive at any time, but the better option if you don't want it, is to say no right at the start... it's not so evident to remove it from your computer once 'synchronised' and when you don't have admin rights (as at work). Most of us are inquisitive though, and therefore will want to have a look. I would suggest you either look it up on the internet or load it on a machine in which you have admin rights, and make your own decision. It's all too much of a gimmick for me, I can transfer all my office files and photographs without it and without problem. The U3 software is gone.

    Once removed, it is as a normal and very reliable pen drive. Therefore; if you want a big drive, to transfer/back-up multiple files, and would pay a bit extra because you work or require it in a rugged environment, and couldn't care less if it maybe takes a few seconds longer to read or write very large files than implied in the description, then I highly recommend this drive to you.

    There is a few reviews for this product, which are quite misleading, so this is the truth:

    Speed: 15 MB/s read, 9 MB/s write - according to the box, and it is quite right, because I have measured 19/10 MBs read/write with a test program (CrystalDiskMark21 - NEC USB port), but during normal usage the speed can be much slower of course. Lots of small files can slow down any device not just this one, and the speed depends on the USB port and the software too.
    So this is quick.

    Capacity: 8*1000.000.000 Byte. Yes, this is a dirty marketing trick, but it doesn't cause any trouble, if you know about it. I knew about the 7,6 GB capacity, and I thought it was worth, so I bought it. Many firm use this trick, so be cautious if you want to find a "real 8GB" key. Even the DVD's capacity is 4,7*1000.000 Byte (and there is 4,7 GB on the box).

    U3: the device asked at the first time, that do I want to remove the U3. So I click yes. The U3 setup files remained on the key. I made a backup, than I deleted all. This was as simple as that.
    I think U3 is very useful some people, but not for professionals (and it can cause problems of course). Many programs can be portable even without the U3.

    Durability and look: yes you can drive through it (check the YouTube), it looks very sturdy, and I am sure it really is. Otherwise I think an ugly rubberized key is a better choice, if you want to smash it to concrete.
    The point is that it is maybe be the most elegant key on the market (I don't like the shape of the cruzer contour), and this is made of real metal (titanium alloy as I know) in a metal-like plastic age.

    Retractable USB connector - slide: it is working well.
