      Comments about SanDisk 16GB Cruzer Extreme USB 3.0 Flash Drive:

      Really fast: ~195MB/sec read and ~49MB/sec write on my MBPr. The retracting usb plug has a solid feel to it. The only minor downside is that the drive is on the large side, but it's narrow enough so that it doesn't block other ports.

        It is a new world in that technology, at least for me, has moved from USB 2.0 flash drives to now this USB 3.0 flash drive that I've purchased and which works superbly, as did B&H from which I purchased it.

          Comments about SanDisk 16GB Cruzer Extreme USB 3.0 Flash Drive:

          I needed a flash drive to make a recovery drive for my new computer. I had an 8GB drive, which was just a tad too small for what I needed and I didn't want to waste space on my 128BG drive. This one worked like a snap! I just plugged it into a USB3 port and created my recovery drive.

                  Going from my literally, little 4 GB flash drive to this is a speedmazing. The flick to open threw me for a little bit. Further, you might need to hold it for some computers, still, this is worth every penny. I'm really saving time on data transfers. This thing did a whole backup of key systems from scratch faster than the old did for a very minor partial data set.

                  I'm very happy to have this now.

                    Writes generally about three times faster than the USB 2.0 version.

                    Improvements also in SecureAccessManager 2 which lead to fewer hangs when trying to remove the flash drive.

                    Comments about SanDisk 16GB Cruzer Extreme USB 3.0 Flash Drive:

                    I always like to keep a flash drive on my keychain, and before I bought this it was a small PNY Hook. It wasn't really fast or particularly durable, but it was good enough.

                    The SanDisk Cruzer is super fast by comparison, even though I mostly use it on USB 2.0. I've never had any recognition issues yet, but I'd imagine it won't have much issue since it has a casing around it.

                    The plastic casing doesn't feel particularly special to this drive, which is not all that bad. It is also bigger than what I've been using as a keychain. Also, the switch feels amazing and is really addicting to play with.. it's a lot like a two way switch blade and springs in and out.

                      Blazing fast on USB 3 and the fastest I have ever seen on USB 2. I wish it were available with a metal body as I can be hard on these things.
