      As time goes on, technology gets better. That is definitely the case with Sandisk's 128 GB USB (2.0 only) Flash Drive. The write speeds are quite fast, depending on your system but I actually did not get this to use for my computer; I got it to use on my XBox 360. The XBox 360 immediately recognized it, with no need to re-format it in any way. Since the XBox 360 is a previous generation game console, it's only able to utilize USB 2.0 devices. Any USB 3.0 devices will usually not work unless they are compatible with USB 2.0 devices, which the XBox 360 falls under. Can you imagine? Back in 2008, when I bought my XBox 360 Elite from Best Buy, 120GB was considered to be a lot of space? Well, times sure have changed. The past few years, I found myself running out of hard drive space on my XBox 360. As time went on, Microsoft was able to release updates to the X360 OS, allowing external hard drives & usb flash drives to be used for storage of X360 files and game software. At first, they limited the size to about 128GB but eventually, they maxed it out to 2TB so almost ANY game collector wouldn't need to worry about running out of space on their hard drives. It's very cool to see that I can have a Sandisk 128GB USB Flash Drive attached to my XBox 360 and realize that it has more space than the original X360 Elite's 120GB Hard Drive. Thank goodness for technology getting better as time goes on.

      I bought 2 of these on sale. One was for myself and the other for my sister. These drives included files to set-up SanDisk Secure Access V3, which is good if you want to secure files, but it is not necessary to use the drive as unsecured storage. We did not know this. There were no instructions, so we assumed that you simply insert the drive and transfer files. That's the way we've done it with smaller drives. Well, you can do that, but upon first inserting the drives, different pop-ups seem to imply that the secure access is necessary, and we were prompted to set it up, which took a while, because the file on the drive was old, and buggy. We downloaded the appropriate files and eventually installed and set up the Secure Access. We each didn't think we would need it, I mean, I didn't buy the drives for the security, but we thought it may be a good feature...just in case. Had we known how much trouble it was, we would have simply forgotten it and erased any installation files. Well, every now and then, I test the "vault" out, but I am unable to put any files into it. I am given error messages, and none of the several methods to add files are working. I have considered re-installing the appropriate files from the website, but I really don't think it's worth the trouble. I will just have to be satisfied with the high capacity of this item.

      Retracting mechanism continues to improve

      SanDisk Cruzer has always had a version with a retracting USB plug. Early ones would sometimes retract when you tried to insert them. This one definitely leaves that problem behind. The original 6-year-old hard drive in my Dell XPS 8500 died and I wanted to keep using the machine. It came with a decent Core i7 and 8GB of RAM so performance would not be an issue if I keep on using it. Hardware-wise I added a Samsung SATA SSD to replace the hard drive. Preliminary steps with the BIOS alone indicated that the SSD was successfully installed. The problem then was to install Windows 10. I had upgraded the machine from Windows 7 during the free upgrade period so licensing was not an issue. Using a different machine I downloaded the Windows Media Creation Tool and used it to create the image that the Dell PC could install Windows from. One of the considerations when you have an older machine is that all the larger capacity devices proclaim that they are USB3 devices. I needed one that would be backward compatible so that the PC could boot from it. I didn't hunt for a blue jack, I just plugged it in the front where it was handy.

      Great Value, Subpar Performance

      This is great to have as a "just in case" storage solution, but it can take a while to transfer files. Read and write speeds are ... well USB 2.0 slow. I bought this because in store I looked at the packaging and it led me to believe that it was USB 3.0. This was because it has USB 2.0/3.0 compatible on the front. I assumed it was USB 3.0 because I know they are backwards compatible and nowhere did it clearly state it was a USB 2.0 drive. Now that I am taking a picture of the front, I flipped it over and on the back really small it says USB 2.0 Drive. I am returning this one to get the USB 3.0 version, but for those who just need to keep documents and small files it is great. For me, I am a photographer and have hi-res files where I move GBs at a time which can take a while at USB 2.0 speeds. Nothing wrong with it, just doesn't work for my needs and it may work for you. But for an extra $10 why not upgrade and be future ready. I would chalk it up to buyer error due to misleading packaging, otherwise great value.

      does the job

      What can you say about a thumb drive? Mainly you want one that works, and by working I mean one where file uploads and downloads are trouble-free, and one which has the full capacity as stated on the packaging. Thumb drive manufacturers have progressively been increasing capacity and prices have more or less been dropping for the same capacity over time. The SanDisk is a basic model capless thumb drive in which the USB connector slides in and out of a plastic case. The case is about the size and general shape of a medium-size nail clipper (tapering at one end). There’s a cutout to attach a lanyard, which nowadays is not included with thumb drives, but you can easily transfer the lanyard you used with your thumb drive of years ago when lanyards were included (if it’s still in good condition). The SanDisk thumb drive is formatted in FAT32, which I thought believe has a file storage size limitation of 4GB, but when I check on the drive properties in Windows, it shows the full size of 128GB as one drive. File transfer speeds were relative slow at 2-4MB per second, but if a few seconds is not an issue in transferring files or folders, then this drive is adequate to the task.

      I bought this on a whim because 1) it was deeply discounted, $80 off the regular price, and 2) I needed something that would hold a lot of video footage for various projects I am involved with, and 3) I read online that it would work with my Asus Chromebook Flip. The built-in security programs don't work on my Chromebook but I'm not using this device to store personal or private information, so I don't really need that feature, though it may come in handy if I ever fire up my Windows laptop again. The cheap plasticky construction isn't going to win any style points, but it is just a thumb drive, not a fashion accessory. It does what I need it to do, and that's what really counts. I haven't really paid attention to the read or write speeds, but all I have done is load 64GB of video from my Canon onto this drive and then hand it off to my editors, so no matter what it is going to take some time. And if it takes 15 minutes to upload instead of 12 because of some "slow" speeds, then so be it. It gets the job done and I paid under $20 for it. Win-win.

      I bought this for $20 on Black Friday. It functions as designed (as far as I can tell), but USB 2.0 is too slow to fill 128GB. It was formatted as FAT32, which has a 4gb file size limit. I reformatted to NTFS, and it took 5 hours. Formatting should not take that long. I used FreeFileSync to synchronize/write 47gb to the Cruzer, and it took 3 hours, 8 minutes, averaging under 5MB/sec, with FreeFileSync periodically becoming non-responsive (wait it out; I didn't have to do anything to make it work again). To test read speeds, I copied 6.47GB of songs from the Cruzer to my hard drive in 5 min, 40 sec, averaging ~20MB/sec. Next, I copied 11.4GB (a mixture of large and small files), in 9 min, 50 sec, averaging ~20MB/sec. I like that it is very small compared to a portable hard drive. It may turn out to be fast enough to sync small changes, but you'll be waiting a *long* time if large files regularly change (like Outlook .pst), or if you regularly add large video files.

      Piece of junk - don't waste your time!

      There is a reason this SanDisk USB drive is so inexpensive - IT IS JUNK! I opened the package, plugged it in, and a message pops up that the drive must be formatted before I can use it. OK, even though Sandisk claims that all their drives are preformatted, I could live with formatting it again. When I tried to format the drive, windows only recognizes it as a 64.0 MB drive - doesn't matter which file system you choose - there is no option available that recognizes a capacity larger than 64 MB, I waited on hold for 20 minutes before I could chat with SanDisk tech support and they told me it is a common problem and the drive is defective. I could submit an RMA and wait 3 weeks for a replacement or I could return it at Best Buy. SanDisk makes garbage products and they know it. This is one of them.
