Works, but not great (terribly slow),
This review is from: SanDisk Cruzer 16 GB Cruzer USB 2.0 Flash Drive SDCZ36-016G-A11 (Personal Computers)I have been a Cruzer user for the past 3 years and, yes, I like and use U3 software. I own a 4 Gb Cruzer and decided to buy the 16 Gb to get some additional space.
Even if you use U3, or like the Cruzer, the 16 Gb version is not a great buy. It works perfect and comes with additional U3 software, but it is terribly slow.
I was appalled at the slow speed of the new drive, so I made three experiments to compare it rigorously with my former 4 Gb drive:
(1) Copying a 291 Mb RAR file from the hard-drive to the Cruzer
(2) Copying a combination of 8 main folders (with multiple sub-folders and files in them) totaling 307 Mb from the hard-drive to the Cruzer
(3) Deleting both the RAR file and the 8 folder structure from the Cruzer drive.
Here are the results:
Cruzer 4 Gb: RAR - 37 s, Folders - 1:02, Delete - 13 s
Cruzer 16 Gb: RAR - 1:06 min, Folders - 1:57 min, Delete - 27 s
So.. basically twice as slow as the 4 Gb drive,... Read more

Great Xbox 360 Storage Device,
Amazon Verified Purchase
This review is from: SanDisk Cruzer 16 GB Cruzer USB 2.0 Flash Drive SDCZ36-016G-A11 (Personal Computers)This product works great as a storage device for the Xbox 360. It meets all of the requirements for the 360 and performs perfectly! I have half of it set aside for my Xbox and use the other half for personal files and my PS3 save data backups as well!
There are only a couple of drawbacks. The first is the very tiny spot on the back for attaching a keychain (actually, I couldn't get a keychain to fit and instead put a cell phone lanyard with a keychain on the end on it). The second drawback is that when you have the device plugged into something there is a very bright, annoying pulsing light that emanates from the top. This can be very distracting when trying to watch Netflix movies from your Xbox.

Great USB Drive at a Good Value Price,
Amazon Verified Purchase
This review is from: SanDisk Cruzer 16 GB Cruzer USB 2.0 Flash Drive SDCZ36-016G-A11 (Personal Computers)I have had this device for over a month now and I have filled it over 65% already and have had no issues with speed or compatability. Worked on all platforms. I did remove the U3 SW as I prefer to use Portable Apps. I will break down the review as such:
Compatibility: I have used it on Win XP, Win Vista, Mac OS X and Windows 2000. No issues at all.
Speed: I copied 8 GB worth of data on the very first day. With write speeds around 15+ MB/s - it performed as expected. Its not the fastest but it is adequate for 99% of users.
Durability: Well, I didn't think I could say much about this except that it has worked fine daily for the last month or so. I will add that this little device did survive a full wash and dry cycle and still is chugging along. I think that speaks volumes about its durability. I know its a SSD so it should be expected to survive such things - but you don't believe it until you see/experience it... Read more
