The Sandisk Cruzer Crossfire flash drive is designed with gaming in mind, specifically to carry game data, music, video and photos between your PC, Xbox 360, or anything with a USB port. However, when I bought it some four years ago, I didn't realise this. I simply wanted a flash drive for backing up documents/pictures and transferring them to other computers. So it is for this use, that I am reviewing the Cruzer Crossfire.
Despite the ugly green/yellow colouration, I feel this is a real gem of a drive. 512MB is plenty for me, although if I was buying now I would perhaps be seduced by more gigs and start putting music on it too. Using the drive the first time was as easy as plugging it in, as it has been on every other use. I have never had any problems with this product whatsoever. I find the Cruzer Crossfire to be very quick when starting up, saving, transferring data etc. and really can't fault it on any account. I currently have all my photographs and documents backed up on it, and are confident that they are safe and sound. I have found this USB flash drive is 100% reliable.
So, although I cannot speak for the Cruzer Crossfire's ability to process music, video or games, based on my experiences with it for photos/documents I am very pleased and would recommend it to anyone. It cost approximately £10 when I bought it and I felt that this was excellent value for money. Like most flash drives it comes with a useful lanyard so you can wear it around your neck, or attach it to something, whilst on the move, if like me you have a tendancy to lose things! If I were to buy another flash drive with greater memory, I wouldn't hesitate to get another Cruzer Crossfire.
