U3 isn't that great.


did not like the U3 software, so I uninstalled it from the drive (I recommend taking it off).

nice drive

Excellent Flash Drive


As my fist laptop purchase, Ive been EXTREEMLY satisfied with both the quality and speed of this computer. As I said before, the performance to cost ratio is amazing. I haven't seen any of the problems described in some of the reviews. In fact quite...

I like the capless design; I lost all three caps to my old SanDisk USB Drive shortly after getting it, so it's nice not to have any caps to lose. I actually sent this through the washer and dryer last night, accidentaly, but it works fine still. 1GB is...

None that I can think of

Perfect for the On-The-Go Personality


I love the Cruzer flash drives from SanDisk. This drive makes my second, and I'm going to buy another one shortly. I would highly recommend this drive to anyone who is always traveling between computers.

The retractable USB plug means there are no spare parts, caps or other worthless pieces of plastic to lose. The drive comes with a metal ring so you can easily clip it to your key chain or a lanyard (included)

The bundled U3 software, but it also comes bundled with an Uninstaller

Sandisk serious flaw?


Although I didn't purchase through Newegg, but at a retail store, this drive has 2 issues. First, There's no point to the U3 software. Second, don't update the U3 software when it asks or you will lose all data! I can't believe Sandisk would forget to...

It's worked for 6 months and still works

The U3 software is pointless. If you update the drive software when it asks you to, it reformats the drive without warning the customer. Serious flaw on Sandisk's part

Consumer review by:

Worked great, till an upgrade reformatted


I wanted to leave a review of the 512Mb version however I feel the serious flaw I accidentally fell into may apply to other sizes also.

Cheap for the 512Mb version, when it was available

The U3 security software is bypassable when you reboot with the drive installed. An upgrade on the U3 software will also reformat the device causeing a TOTAL loss of all data

cool orange flashing light

No cap to lose, very cool sliding design. Never had a problem and have been using this product almost two years

SanDisk Cruzer Micro U3 1GB Flash Drive (USB2.0 Portable) Model SDCZ6-1024-A10


If you really want to run programs right off the flash drive, get rid of U3 and Google PortableApps, their freeware is much more stable and works just as well if not better.

Excellent design overall. I like the slide design since I don't have to worry about losing a cap. Has worked so far and not lost any data

U3 software is buggy and locked up my computer nearly every time I plugged the drive in. I recommend uninstalling it as soon as possible

Cruzer Micro 1GB


overall its good

It's sandisk which means it lasts forever, my previous flash drive was sandisk 256 i bougth 3 years ago and its still working as new. U3 works great with vista and XP

U3 causes some computers to slow down or stop responding if you are using software that might conflict with U3 (list of software conflicts available at You can install U3 ; it doesnt support Ready Boost in vista

Consumer review by:

Pretty Nice


U3 is a piece of junk. It will free up some space on your drive if you uninstall the software.

It's durable, reliable, has a retractable slider (no cap!), and is easy plug-and-play

U3 software, the slider in the drive wore down considerably after about 8 months of use
