This SanDisk Cruzer Switch in 64GB was the flash drive my hubby bought when he was running out of mobile storage space. He nipped out to the supermarket and returned with this device. I am not really sure how it ended up in my handbag... OK so I know exactly how it ended up in my handbag, I too, was running out of portable media space and needed to transfer a video file between home and work.
The actual shape of the drive is well thought out. It has a flip over lid so you can protect the end when it is not in use and this is attached so would be impossible to lose. The main body of the flash drive clips in to the lid too making it shorter in length. Another handy feature is the plastic clip you can attach a lanyard or keyring or ribbon to the device. Mine has a keyring with hubby's name written on it... yep that worked didn't it?! The drive weighs just 9g so you literally don't know it's in your pocket! I should also add that this flash drive is quite manly in black and red colours.
I think Hubby got stung by over inflated supermarket prices as I am sure he told me it cost £24.99 a few months ago. It is on sale on Amazon in various sizes right now with the 64GB drive priced at £14.99.
I just plug this flash drive in to the 2.0 USB port of my laptop or PC and I can immediately open up the files on it using the My Computer option on the menu bar. You can drag and drop files to and from the stick and it works fast enough for me.
There is a private data section on this flash drive which I have not really had a need for but it is included on the software of the 64GB version so you can password protect and encrypt your files if you need to you drag and drop files in to a vault and they'll be protected by a personal password and automatic 128-bit AES encryption3.
Other vital info
This stick comes with a five year warranty (presumably if you can find your receipt!) and is made from a mixture of silicon and plastic.
This is a device I use daily. I always opt for this flash drive from my collection as I know there is plenty of space on it. I was dreading writing this review as I feared it would be too dull and technically inept but to be honest I think most computer users are now familiar with what a flash drive does so it doesn't have to be that complicated!
