    I have been looking to upgrade my external storage all together, including get a external hard drive for both my Xbox one and PC (know what I’m getting for both, just waiting for some extra funds to purchase drives). So for my flash drive upgrade I was either going to get a 5-pack of 16 GBs or get 1 or 2 drives of the higher storage, When I saw that this one was on sale for 70+% I immediately got in my car and went and bought it. Because I saved so much I’m thinking about getting that 5-pack I mentioned earlier as well, will update with choice is made.

    Not compatible with Windows 10

    I was so excited that this was on sale during Black Friday, especially since the reviews looked good. Finally received it in the mail, but I ended up being very disappointed. It works with Windows 10, but the security feature is not compatible with Windows 10. I even updated the security feature, but it still didn't work. It took about 18 minutes to transfer 22 GB onto the flash drive which felt kind of slow to me. If you need the security feature and are running on Windows 10 then I wouldn't recommend it, but if that doesn't matter then it will work fine for you.

    I have a few of these drives and they have yet to let me down. I purchased the "SanDisk - Ultra 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive - Black" because they are great drives and the Christmas sale made them much more attractive as gifts; but when I work on a project, I use a separate USB drive to make sure that only the data for that project is kept separate from other projects. The SanDisk drives come with security software the gives me confidence that if I lose the data, that it would be easily compromised. Of course you should always have a backup copy of the drive at home so the data is not lost complete. That's why it's good to purchase the drives in pairs.

    The Red Helps differentiate from my other drives..

    The red color helps me differentiate from other drives that I have that are the same. The performance is the same with any color. I have a couple of these drives to store work documents and they are great. They are not the fastest flash drive out there but they are very stable and do not reformat themselves after being used for some time. They are pretty fast, however, no matter if you are using a USB 2.0 connector but works best on a USB 3.0 connector. All things considered, just as great as the other drives I have had from them and perfect for me because I can now tell which drive I am using without having to label it.

    This flash drive is just the right size to save Windows ISO and personal files on! Helped save my computer in a big way, since these flash drives are seen by the computer as a solid state external drive. And being a Youtube Creator for 9 years plus, saving all the raw footage, pictures & uploaded videos externally is important to me. These flash drives have been flawless over the last few years. External hard drives have more memory space, but are too finicky and too easily damaged. So I only use SanDisk flash drives from now on!

    Initial flash drive did not work. When plugged in a msg appeared, "drive needs to be formatted". Tried to format drive and it would not format (it was trying to format the full 64G drive when less than 64G was available) Also could not access drive to erase files that were included on drive to free up drive space (others had complained about this). Returned drive for a new one that worked OK. Good thing I had tried drive before return period was up!

    Made the mistake of buying one before where it said it was "USB 2/3".... Turns our that means jack because it functions as just a standard 2.0 device. This one however is 3.0 and works great. Fantastic read/write rate... Sometimes I look away for a second and it magically finishes the data transfer. I actually used this guy for cloning HHDs due too it's speed (don't know what that is? It basically means this this is blazing fast... Don't hurt yourself). That's about it, I mean there isn't more to stay about a jump drive. Performance is great, construction is solid, price is cheap. Stop reading reviews and go buy the darn thing.

    64 gigs for only 20 bucks

    I love that memory is getting cheaper and 64 gigs was enough to copy every film picture I own. I actually bought four of these and gave each member of my family copies of all our family albums. How cool is that? And there is still plenty of room to add some old videos too but by then I got lazy. I plan to one day bring a loaded stick with me on visits and offer to transfer the other stuff onto this left over free space. Once I get around to copying the videos to digital that is. They all appreciated the effort so far. Anything for my girls.

    Seems fine for basic storage. Software stinks

    I bought this for the Sandisk encryption that was promised, but that software is so buggy that I just formatted the whole disk as a Truecrypt volume. For example, with the SanDisk encryption software, you can't save directories within directories if they have the same name. That is a hard lesson to learn and figure out after a long, failed copy. Any defect in backup software is a risk of data loss. The hardware works fine, and Truecrypt encrypted it fine (Truecrypt is now defunct, Veracrypt is its successor). Not fast enough to, say, run an OS from, but fine for basic backup storage.

    Great Sandisk USB 3.0 Flash drive 64GB deal

    The Sandisk USB 64GB 3.0 was a great buy. I purchased it on sale. It is easy to plug into my laptop's usb port. The flash drive downloads my files quickly. I like the fact that it is red, portable, large storage, light weight, has a 5 year warranty, and 100mb/sec read speed. The read speed is quicker than the black version. I am happy that I purchased it on sale. Sandisk does not included a key or a pouch to carry it. This is not a deal breaker. The regular price is expensive, but sale price was a good deal. If you need a portable lightweight, reliable brand, and with 64GB storage, this is for you.

    This flash drive works well for price and the customer service my local Bestbuy provides. I've used the SanDisk brand often without issues: painful is having a cheap flash drive just stop working without notice. What sets Bestbuy items apart from other online purchases is the customer service. They want your business. You can contact them via phone, online, and in person. We need brick & mortar stores and the expertise of the people employed there. I keep my plastic flash drives in a container. What makes them valuable is the info contained within, just like Bestbuy stores.

    SanDisk Solves It - EVERY TIME!

    I've said this before, and I will say it many more times again ... SanDisk "flash" memory devices ARE the BEST FLASH MEMORY DEVICES YOU CAN BUY. I'll probably never buy any other manufacturer's device if a SanDisk product is available, price NOT withstanding! I bought this flash drive to be loaded with music videos for my USB enabled Blu-ray player. This is a wonderfully simple, and at the same time, an intelligent and even elegant solution for playing my MVs with full Blu-ray Home Theater effects! Thanks Again to SanDisk AND Best Buy for GREAT Home Theater Solutions at Incredibly LOW Prices!!!

    This product fit my needs in a pinch and works for me because it’s so compact and mobile. I am very satisfied with this product I am will most certainly recommend it to my friends and my family. The geek squad yet again pointed me in the right direction and gave me options and let me make a choice on which to purchase. Thank you so much again. I live about an hour away from the Best Buy and so it is always important that when I get to the store that I find what I need and I do thank you so much.

    Use instead of CDs

    We frequently use these large capacity flashdrives instead of CDs as they are much easier to write to, don't get damaged by dust or scratches, can be reused easily, and are fairly cheap. We send them to clients, always with good results (if they make it through the USPS). We have taken to sending these in a package instead of an envelope because despite several "hand stamp only" stamps on the envelope, the USPS will run these through the machine which causes the flashdrive to tear through the envelope and get lost.

    excellent thumb drive

    Excellent thumb drive. The Sandisk ultra 64GB USB 3.0 flash drive has very fast read and write speeds when used with an Acer Chromebook. Right now 64GB seems to be the optimum balance between speed and capacity. That will no doubt change as thumb drives expand beyond the current 256GB max size, but for now these are fantastic drives at a good price point when Best Buy puts them on sale. As far as I can tell there is no difference (other than color) between the Sandisk 64GB USB Type A Flash Drive - Red and the Sandisk Ultra 64GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive - Black.

    A friend asked me to pick up a flash drive for her. I logged onto Amazon and glanced through the SanDisk Cruzers. They have been my go-to flash drives for years. Currently, I have a 256 mb, a 16 gb and now a 32 gb on my desk. I use all three in solving software problems on friend's computers. So I ordered the 32 gb for the friend and ordered one for myself as well. As always, they work instantly, perfectly and quickly. Great products!

    Fast USB Drive

    I needed a USB drive that was fast and large enough to move video files to and from my computer and to and from my clients. This product was not only large enough to move large files but also much faster than I expected. The product was so impressive that after I purchased the first one I went back and bought a second as a gift. I'm considering a third one as a backup. I really like SanDisk products. I recently purchased an offbrand on the Internet and was very surprised at how slow any file transfers took.

    Pros: 64 GB on sale 20 bucks. USB 3.0 capable speedy upload/download times for larger files. Red and black Deadpoolesque color scheme if you treat your electronics purchases as fashion accessories, or you constantly lose thumb drives and want a highly visible one. Cons: No convenient key chain/necklace lanyard included to get caught on furniture, doorknobs and assorted junk in your work space. Slightly awkward usb sliding switch, doesn't allow Clint Eastwood quick draw word document uploading. Feels like Fisher Price designed the thumb drive housing.

    San Disk USB drives have been reliable to me in the past, which was the reason why I choose this USB flash drive. I plugged it into my computer and immediately my computer started to run slower. I tried to format it to fix the problem, but then got a error message saying it is read only and not able to format. I tried to find a solution online, but none of the tricks worked, so I did an exchange. The 2nd one seems to be working fine, but now I don't trust it with my important information.

    Quickly transfer files to and from your laptop or desktop using this SanDisk Ultra SDCZ48-064G-A46 USB 3.0 flash drive that features a read speed of up to 80MB/sec. The 64GB capacity offers ample storage space. (Ten times faster than USB 2.0 drives. Write speeds up to 10 times faster than Cruzer USB 2.0 drive.)* *USB 3.0 port required. Based on internal testing; performance may be lower depending upon host device. This says it all. I am a SanDisk fan and have always found their products reliable and safe.
