Today I speak of Sandisk Cruzer 8GB Pendrives (Sandisk U3 USB 2.0 Flash/Jump Drive (8GB)) of DealExtreme. I bought in order to use them for function ReadyBoost no Windows 7. Such a function is to use flash memory devices as cache to improve performance of the operating system, taking advantage of the speed of these devices, especially in shuffle, that is the weak point of the hard disks, that are best read in sequential.
I would buy two 8GB Pendrives, for use in different machines, but to enjoy the lowest price with the BULKRATE, resolve to take three of them. A Sandisk has been my favorite brand of flash drives for some time, my pendrive current daily use is also a Sandisk Cruzer acquired in Newegg.ca, and the former was also a Sandisk Cruzer, that is now used to ReadyBoost on a laptop. Recently in girlfriend also was in need of a pendrive and used my DX Points to exchange for a Sandisk 4GB version in. A DealExtreme also has versions of 2GB and 16GB.
This flash drive does not come with the software Sandisk U3, but I believe you can install it without problems, did not do it just because with them in the U3 ReadyBoost function would have no utility, and still occupy space that could be used by ReadyBoost. The product code Sandisk site from north-American e SDCZ36-008G-A11, and I received the pendrive is SDCZ36-008G-P36, but there is reason for concern, O is for exactly this code contained in site by Sandisk chinesa. The packages are written in English, and there is only one label in Chinese in front, and another at the rear of each. The guarantee is 5 years and apparently goes worldwide.
The Sandisk Cruzer flash drives use a retractable connector, a better solution than the caps present in other models, that eventually are lost, leaving the connector without any protection.
