      Bought this flash drive to use to transfer files between computers and it workes perfectly the included software does not self install or even ask to be installed. Holds just the right amount of "GB" for my needs. Now i would not want to have this on a key chain since it is made out of very thin plastic and will easly break in a pocket and i see no need to carry it around with me since i'm not into corporate espionage. Over all i can highly recommend this flash drive.

      I purchased this particular USB flash drive because of the name "SanDisk", which I believed was a good "name brand". Boy was I wrong. This unit is made of plastic and the fit in the USB connection is very bad. It takes alot of force to get it into the USB connection of my computer. I was actually afraid it was going to damage my connection. I have trimmed off some of the plastic in the area that was clearly marked by the bad interferrence fit in order to reduce risk of damaging my USB connection. - They should have used metal for this part of the unit, or at least ensured a better fit.

        Comments about SanDisk 16GB Cruzer Blade USB Flash Drive:

        Bought this because of the price. It's plastic and likely would not trust for everyday usage, but for creating install "discs" for an operating system that does not ship with optical/DVD media, this is perfect. Cheap and does the job.

        Comments about SanDisk 16GB Cruzer Blade USB Flash Drive:

        I needed a USB drive that did not cost a lot. I found this 16GB drive for less than $[*] dollars. It is small, light weight and it works very well. I transferred 12GB of photos and video from my computer to the USB drive in about 22 minutes. No problems at all. Does what it is supposed to do.

                This is a great device for storing movies and music for travel. Or important documents you want to secure because of the size it takes up very little space.
                It can handle large hd movie files or mp3 files.

                  I obtained this snazzy little thumb drive to store videos of a singer-actress now appearing on Broadway in FOLLIES. Then I gave her the drive as an early Christmas gift. All it lacked was a gift casing. As far as I know, it works fine. This is an unusual present, especially for yourself.

                    It's shorter than either of my other two USB drives. At least it doesn't have flashing lights. The only drawback is that it's so small that it's kind of hard to pull out from the slot. Also, no cap is included so I use one of my other caps when it's not plugged in. There is some useless Sandisk Club junk on there, but doesn't affect the drive.

                      I use this drive to move files around the office. It works like it suppose to. It is very small, only 1-1/2 inches long, for a 16gb drive. It's light and made out of plastic. It fits in all my drive fine.
                      It has a place to tie it to a key chain but I think I might destroy it in my pocket since it light duty. I did not see a cap to protect the end - but that is ok since I don't need one in the office.
                      It sells for a good price but I would not use it as a walk around in your pocket disk. I'd get one with a retractable head for the same price.
                      When I first saw it, I was a little disappointed because of it's light weight and small size. But after using it for a while I have grown to like it.

                        This little USB drive is fantastic. You can put huge amount of files on it and it's so small!

                          I purchased this particular USB flash drive because of the name "SanDisk", which I believed was a good "name brand". Boy was I wrong. This unit is made of plastic and the fit in the USB connection is very bad. It takes alot of force to get it into the USB connection of my computer. I was actually afraid it was going to damage my connection. I have trimmed off some of the plastic in the area that was clearly marked by the bad interferrence fit in order to reduce risk of damaging my USB connection. - They should have used metal for this part of the unit, or at least ensured a better fit.

                          I wanted a 16GB memory unit to use with my new 55in HD LCD TV so I could cycle my 15,000+ pics on the screen with the stereo on while I "played with" my images.

                          Not having bought a flash drive in quite some time I was amazed at the minimal size which really worked great for me as it didn't look like an appendage was coming out of the side of my TV.

                          The other thing I noticed is its construction felt rather "cheap" being plastic and tiny. However it did the job that I wanted it to do - I just couldn't give it a five because of the "feel" of it.
