Sandisk Cruzer Slice 8GB
Advantages: Good space, good reliability and exterior casing.
Disadvantages: Could be bigger, not water-proof.
USB sticks have become a vital entity to our individual arsenals of computing additions. They help us to securely save work and other files on a small, easily connected platform which is compatible with every PC available today. Due to advancements in recent technology (with devices becoming smaller and smaller as well as increasing in memory space) we can now reach impressive levels of space within our USB sticks - the 'Sandisk Cruzer Slice' has 8GB of internal memory, a healthy amount, but not the top end of what is possible today.
The value of a USB stick on today's market is roughly 1GB of memory per £1.00. Sandisks stick to this trend almost exactly, the Cruzer can be bought for £8-10 from PC World and many online retailers across the country. For the thousands of songs, hundreds of thousands of potential documents, and tens of full-length movies this device can store and transfer between computer, games console and other compatible platform, the price seems right.
This model stands out from others by way of its protective exterior, which covers the USB connector at the slide of a switch. A red button on the side moves a plastic shield over the end, which is the most vulnerable and easily damageable area of the device. this protective mechanism doesn't prevent water or moisture from entering the contraption, and this remains the products major disadvantage - but I haven't found a stick on the market that addresses this common cause of memory unit destruction.
All Sandisk products have average/quick transfer rates, when both copying and reading data - and this particular product is no exception to that fact. The whole unit can be filled in under 20minutes and emptied in the same time - a standard transaction period.
This product is a durable, reliable, spacious model anyone can put to use in a user-friendly way. The only disadvantage is the fact there are other products on the market with greater memory capacity. If you are looking for something a little bigger, try an alternative Sandisk product and you won't be disappointed.
Summary: Sandisk products can be trusted.
