Convenient Storage and Portability
With USB ports on computers, to new ports popping up on cars, DVD players, TVs, photo frames, and more, the need for a fast and reliable way to share your digital content at a moment's notice is greater than ever.

The SanDisk Cruzer USB Flash Drive meets that need. This reliable flash drive fits in the palm of your hand and gives you the storage capacity you need to store and transfer up to 64GB of data.

While the drive is optimised for laptops and devices with USB 2.0 port, it is backwards compatible with older devices that have USB 1.1 ports, so you can be assured of near universal compatibility.

View Videos Without Extra Software or Setup
With the SanDisk Cruzer USB Flash Drive, you can transfer your favourite video from one device to another easily and conveniently, without any additional software or setup. The drive offers drag-and-drop convenience, which means you can simply drag the files from your device onto your SanDisk Cruzer Flash drive, or vice versa, without any steps.

Transferring video files from computer to computer, or from your drive to a USB-enabled DVD player, is incredibly simple. Drag your video files from your PC to your USB flash drive and then plug the drive into your DVD player - or even your USB-enabled TV - and sit back to enjoy the show.

Smart, Stylish Design for Ease of Use
With a capless design that exposes the USB connector via a convenient slider, the SanDisk Cruzer USB Flash Drive looks just as great as it performs.

When you plug the SanDisk Cruzer USB Flash Drive into your USB-enabled device, a glowing, amber-coloured LED alerts you that the drives are ready for reading or writing data. This LED rapidly pulses when data is being transferred, and it slows down when the drives are idle, giving you a clear indication of the disk's activity.

Secure Access Logo
SecureAccess Protects Your Data
Create a private folder or "vault" on your SanDisk Cruzer USB Flash Drive with SecureAccess software. SecureAccess makes it easy to protect critical files like business presentations or legal documents. Simply drag and drop files into the vault, and they'll be protected by a personal password and automatic 128-bit AES encryption*. This means that your content will stay private and secure via data scrambling at the flash controller level when the drives are either physically removed for portability or stored away for safe keeping. The fact that many governments approve the AES algorithm is testimony to its validity. You also get the added protection of secure online backup (up to 2GB1) offered by SanDisk's online backup partner**.

The SanDisk Cruzer USB Flash Drive is compatible as a flash storage device with Windows XP, Windows Vista, Mac OS 10+ and Linux machines.

The drive is backed by a limited five-year warranty.

    Colour Name: BlackSize: 16GB
    This is a good quality USB flash drive, which offers the added advantage of a re-tractable connector. The downside is that the default of the USB file system is "FAT 32" rather than "NTFS". What this means is that you cannot save individual files greater than 4GB as this is the maximum file size for FAT 32 files. The main reason for purchasing this USB flash drive was to copy large files! Most computers these days have defaulted file systems in NTFS, providing greater increased security. The plus side is that it's very easy to re-format to NTFS, allowing you to save individual files of any size. The second downside is that the USB flash drive comes pwith pre-loaded free software, which is not necessary. Just simply delete it! Having said all that, this is a great flash drive. Ps. if you need to find out more about FAT 32 or NTFS just Google it. Regards Keith.Sandisk 16GB Cruzer USB Flash Drive - Retail Pack

    Anyone want a virtually unused and most definitely unwanted Sandisk Cruzer? It has neat ergonomics and a great price, but it is so slow that it is unusable. I get a data transfer rate of around 5MB/s - which means it will take over 50 minutes to fill the whole drive. I have now bought two Bytestor 16GB hi-speed sticks from Amazon at a similar price and they transfer at 20MB/s.

    I have the older version of this as well, but I can't see what the difference is, which is absolutely fine by me, as I have no complaints whatsoever. I find it useful for transferring large photo folders to our PS3 for viewing on TV.

    The orange light is the same as before, which means fairly typical and not at all distracting to me.

    Pretty massive capacity, relatively cheap, password protection, no lid to lose - what more do you want in a flash drive?

    Some nice features. I personally don't use the U3 that this comes with as my usb pen is used mainly for schoolwork rather than media. This is still a very useful feature.

    Another good feature is the sliding connector. This stops damage to the pins which is especially handy as this spends a LOT fo time in my pocket.

    Overall a very good product with some excellent features. Recommend to anyone.

    I have no idea why some people are saying this device is really slow... It just isn't. After plugging this into my USB port I transferred a 320 MB music mix to the drive and it took just under 30 seconds. Easily writing at over 10.5 MB per second. So it appears it will do around 3 GB in 5 mins. If a 100 MB file take 10 seconds its going at 10 MB per second, if some free software on the net says otherwise... It's wrong! So don't read too much into the negative slow reviews as it clearly performs just as it should. People should consider other things that may be causing slow transfers as the device seems perfectly fine to me an my PC. However after testing myself it seems to be the case that the device transfers quicker when using the default FAT32 format and is slower for NTFS. The 320 MB file took 30 seconds with FAT32 and nearly 50 seconds with NTFS. NTFS is only really required if you will be storing any individual file over 4GB in size, in which case a Pen drive isn't really suitable anyway an you should buy an external HDD instead. So don't be put off its a good flash drive and performs exactly as it should. Don't hesitate to buy it.

    3 gigs of music in 16 minutes. I have a usb HD that will copy the exact same folder in 2 minutes flat. I really cannot recommend this drive because of the terrible speed issues. Very disappointing.

    This gets one star due to the following reason. It's very very slow. I copied 9GB in 50 minutes! For a device as big as this at 16GB the write speeds need to be way way faster.

    I can see why other reviewers said it would break as it just feels like the plastic casing would eventually un-glue and fall apart.

    Apart from that though, if you're just after mass portable storage then this would suit your needs. If you need fast read/write access then you'll need to pay a little more for something faster.

    I've returned this.

    This is a great product. Small, lightweight and easy to use. There is no need to worry about losing the top as it doesn't have one. It simply retracts! It stores lots of information and can be attached to a lanyard or keyring. What more could you want?
    Would definitely recommend this product.
