  used for the xbox 360

| | See all AzRarr's reviews (5)

I have had it for a year, It works for the xbox 360 (reason I bought it). but it started off really good after a couple weeks though it started to rattle after a couple month it doesn't always connect to the xbox so have to take it out and put it back in a couple times. I got it when it was only 9.99 so can't complain really, but at full price you can get better cheaper but saying that you can get better at the price I paid.

  cruzer 16gb Micro in washing machine horror!

| | See all celtictaj's reviews (1)

I accidently put my 16gb san disk cruzer micro (almost identical to the one in the picture) through the washing machine over night. It has survived a 2 hr wash cycle and a 1600rpm spin cycle. It emerged with superfical damage to the casing but after a week of drying out next to the dehumidifier it has flashed into life straight away. The slide button sticks but I think it deserves 5/5. Well done San disk

  Reliable, stable and cool!

I have had about 4-5 flash drives. This one works like a charm.

I give it 4 stars instead of five because the producer fail to give correct specifications of the drive and because it can be a little slow from time to time.

The drive is however very stable and reliable. The pulsating orange light (in the white are) is a very relaxing and cool feature. Not like many other drives who fail at this area.

The drive has a sort of "plastic feel" to it for those of you who are paranoid about this. Personally I think it's kind of cute.

And remember to always use SAFELY REMOVE HARDWARE on windows, not to be confused with the "eject" feature. This will prevent the drive from being damaged.

  Perfect for Xbox 360

I purchased two of these SanDisk Cruzer 16GB USB Flash Drives to use with my Xbox 360 after Microsoft released a system update adding USB support on 6th April 2010.

The Xbox 360 only allows up to 16GB USB storage on any one drive so this one is perfect for the job. After formatting in the Xbox 360 it left a little over 14GB storage space. I tested it by installing a game to the USB drive and played it for four hours. The results were fantastic, much improved loading times and the added bonus of a quiet Xbox 360 without the DVD drive constantly spinning.

This USB flash drive is nice and small and I personally like the "switchblade" design which retracts the USB connector when not in use. The only slight drawback is the large, bright orange light behind the thumb slider which shines / flickers when the drive is accessed (constantly while gaming). Although this is a little annoying it's not bad enough to mark the product down.

5 out of 5 from me, great product and super value (17.99 at the time of writing).

  Amazing, and Kinda Waterproof

| | See all rkilburn9837's reviews (1)

This is an amazing memory stick, write speeds about 10 - 17mbps and read times (for copying) at about 20-25mbps. Did leave outside by accident one night and it rained but still works fine after leaving on radiator all day.

Would highly recommend

  BARGAIN !!!

| | See all htpntg2005's reviews (2)

I brought 2 of these was really happy with my 4gb and my 16gb titanium one.....in fact i may need another one soon :D

  Amazing Value For Price

| | See all sattty's reviews (1)

This flash drive comes bundled with U3 software which i found very annoying so it was formatted straight away, apart from being a bit flimsy when inserted into a usb port it is perfect.......and for just over 17 quid you cannot really go wrong! I'd much rather have one of these than one of the unbranded ones.

  San Disk 16GB USB

My dad bought me one of these when I ran out of space on my other pen drive, and when my spare went missing.

It literally holds everything!
Music, Movies, loads!
I have used this for about 10 months now and have loads of pictures, loads of songs, and loads of documents on (All of my work from Years 7-12) inclusive of coursework etc. I haven't even used half of it yet!
It's truely amazing.

I think this is the same version that I have:

It is password protected, so if anyone gets hold of your pen drive, they cannot copy any work files.
It is also 'retractable'. The silver part of the USB folds into the rest of the pen drive reducing the chance of it breaking.
Normally pen drives are relatively easy to break, but as I said, I have had this for 10 months and it hasn't broken once!

It may be a bit of a nuisance being recognised by some computers, but if it isn't recognised, you just remove it from the USB holder and put it back in. No software is needed for this USB.

I would recommend that you buy this:
Honestly, you think you'll never use a 2GB memory stick for example, and you end up using it up really quickly and have to delete documents to make way for new ones - not a problem with this USB.

Definitely worth paying 16.99 for a 16GB memory stick rather than 6.99 for a 2GB one.

With this pen drive you will probably not need another again, the memory is that good - and it is not prone to breakage.

Recommended by me!
