Advantages: Robust and Useful
Disadvantages: Not enough capacity for nowadays .
This 4GB memory stick was the first USB flash drive I ever bought. It was on sale in WH Smiths for £8 at the time. Back then not much more than a 16GB was available but a handy 4GB storage device more robust than a CD was very much what I needed.
Since that time I've bought other USB sticks as you do need more and at larger capacities.
The Titanium Cruzer is extremely pocket friendly and feels solid enough to withstand dropping or carrying around for everyday usage without worrying about wear and tear. The feel and appearance of the stick is very slick. Stainless steel shell with a slider which allows you to reveal the USB port connector. This particular feature will wear a little bit over time though. Once you slide the connector out it should click into place until you release it again. However mine doesn't always stay in place as it should and so is pushed in again when trying to physically connect to the port.
When you connect to your computer a orange led light should come on which illuminates the slightly translucent plastic of the slider. This is a nice feature. It's fairly common place these days on Sandisk or Transcend USB sticks. The light also flashes continuously as long as your computer in switched on. It has a key ring hoop on the tip (back end) of the stick so as to attach it to a set of keys or something I imagine. It is small enough to be lost so this is a useful tool.
This USB stick comes with password protection encryption software available for use on the stick in case you have any sensitive material you want to safe guard. You can have so as accessing folders on the stock will prompt who ever is using it for a password. This is something I'm not particularly bothered about and haven't explored to the fullest.
Try not to knock it if it is plugged into the front of your computer tower as this will bend the connector and reduce the lifespan. I still find this Sandisk Cruzer Titanium to be highly useful to carry around in my pocket for when I need to store computer files, photos and information. I recommend it.
