            I must be the last one around who does not know how much easier it is to save and transport data using these USB flash drives. They are relatively inexpensive and very portable. Certainly alot more convenient than burning data to a cd. I would highly recommend these flash drives to anyone interested in a quick and easy way to save and/or transport files or photos. As one of my freinds said, welcome to the 21st Century.

              Comments about SanDisk 8GB Cruzer Blade USB Flash Drive:

              This is a basic 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive. I used it to create a Recovery Flash Drive as per the instructions on Apple's support site. I can insert this drive in my Mac, hold down the Option key and start the computer. I will be able to use the recovery tools on this drive independent of my Mac - very useful. The USB drive was not very expensive and SanDisk is a good company. I would have liked a cap for pin side of the drive, but I guess this is mostly used a lot to transfer pictures for people and the cap would get in the way or get lost.

                        I bought this to make a bootable installation drive for the Mac OS Mountain Lion, since Apple no longer provides it on CD. This drive is the perfect size, since any more capacity would be wasted, and the price is certainly right. It worked well, and the process was fast, so the RW speed is good. It has a slot on the end that I used to attach a tag, so I could label it, and to help find it when needed. I'm very happy with the purchase.

                                    The 8gb cruzer blade flash drive by sandisk is very small but with so much memory which you could use to store personal data like music and videos exedra.. It's amazing

                                        I used it to create a bootable copy of OSX Lion after I purchased it from the App store.

                                        I will purchase these when I need more USB flash drives.

                                          Not any bigger than needed, and not too small to handle. Just big enough to be easy to hold between thumb and finger. Simple curved design helps make it easy to hold and control, and looks cool too. Works without fuss, faster than my older drives. What else is there to report?

                                          Small enough to be easy to lose, so make sure you have a small closed pocket for them in your laptop case/pack/bookbag, or string them on a lanyard using the hole provided.

                                          Bought this usb drive to transfer files for school (mainly pdfs,word docs, pictures, and video). It works well and came formatted in Fat32 so it was ready to go for Macs and PCs.

                                          This thing is tiny compared to other drives and seems a little flimsy.

                                          Performance wise it's not the fastest drive but also not the slowest. It's suitable for general use but if you are super antsy then go for a high performance drive.
