VIRTUALLY INDESTRUCTIBLE 8GB MEMORY PEN DELIVERED FOR £20.99

SanDisk USB Flash Drives
SanDisk Titanium Cruzer U3 USB Flash Drive

The SanDisk Cruzer Titanium is an extremely rugged and incredibly fast USB Flash Drive (UFD) that connects to a computer's USB port. New retractable USB port eliminates the need for caps and protects your USB connector.

Warranty : 5 Year

30% OFF!

There is a further 4% available from Quidco.

There are reviews of these on the net - showing them being dropped off the roofs of flats and driven over by 4x4s and they still work. I have a 1GB one I have had for about 20 months and a 4GB one since last Chistmas - and the transfer speeds are good, and they still look new, despite being used very often.

My only criticism of the drive would be the blue LED that lights up when in use - is entirely distracting when its used on my car radio for playing music via the USB slot. But it was handy for this as music transfers to it far faster than using memory cards.

Lastly - Mymemory is in the Chanel Islands so there is no VAT on items posted to the UK under £18.00. However, £17.99 plus VAT comes to £21.14 - so technically they would receive more for these as they did not have pay VAT if they were sold for £17.99 (the price of the 4GB version). However, I guess they could be claiming the three quid to be P&P charges.

I will send them an email and display their reply here.

Hmm, not bad for the price, however sandisk have gone down in my estimate, I had two of these fail on me straight out of the box, sandisk didn't want to know, they went straight back to the shop.

I use Corsair now and wouldnt use anything else.

I own a couple of Survivors and a voyager, unbreakable and tough :)

SANDISK CRUZER MICRO 8Gb U3 READYBOOST is £17.99 delivered at Amazon.co.uk - not sure what the difference is between the two (construction?) and if it is worth the extra.

The difference is the cheaper one is the plastic one with a shorter warranty - so not virtually indestructible. The titanium is also slightly smaller, due to the thickness of the plastic needed to offer structural integrity that is far less than the thinner Titanium version.

Warranty returns for Corsair are to the USA - that is what their suppliers advise, and must be sent insured.

Both have caps, which are a pain - and even worse if you lose them. Imagine crawling round on your knees on the floor of some foreign internet cafe where you cannot even speak the language?

Lastly - the Voyager is housed in rather thick rubber and is MASSIVE - which makes it too wide to fit in some recessed USB ports, and also you cannot use two next to each other due to their size in many situations (including on the EEE).

Sorry - I looked into it quite a bit prior to buying the first - and they were also featured as the best buy in PC Pro (although not in their more recent tests - which I felt were not helped by comparing 4GB and 8GB drives and then judging on the cost per gig. The Sandisk Contour won - but its larger, albeit slimmer, but costs far more.)

The Corsair ones were my second choice - and that was why i remembered the adverse reports, as I picked between the two/

I also remember seeing the review - where the 4x4 had driven over both - and the Titanium was fine but the Voyagers USB plug bent badly. Not that I intended to let many 4x4 drive over it - especially as its kept in my wallet. However it was a good indication of its being close to indestructible.

I thought this would have been doing far better.

Probably down to the fact that you can buy an 8GB SanDisk metal stick for as little as £13.99. I know they differ but if build quality and size are the factors being considered........

Is this actually made of titanium? I always wondered.

I doubt it.

Titanium looks darker and a bit greyish.

I would guess its mild steel with a chromium plating at the edges - but as I said - that's a guess.

Think the problem is that the sandisk cruzer micro is only £13.99 at Amazon. People only see 'price' and 'size'.

I've got both standard and titanium versions (albeit in lower 2gb versions) and the titanium version is much faster and clearly much more sturdy. If it were me I'd pay the extra £7 but YMMV.
