They gave me a leaflet with a card for 10% off computer hardware (20% off other stuff, finishes 26th April) when I bought the 4Gb one so you could possibly get this for £7.62 and the 8Gb for £14.39. ;-) I am tempted to get the 8GB but I don't really need another one! :?

For an extra £2.50 you can double the memory. Unless I'm missing something here, this is cold for me.

this is u3?EDIT: .. and less likely to brake with better warranty

[INDENT]This entry-level USB storage of 8GB solution features high transfer speed in a fashionable design with retractable USB connector.[/INDENT]

You're not comparing the same thing at all, this is a high-end product. The difference lies in the sturdiness (believe me, standard USB drives are not that tough!) and the U3 feature which I've been eyeing for quite a while now. At this price I will definitely get one, voted hot and many thanks OP! :thumbsup:

The one posted is a top end Sandisk drive in a titanium case. That's a Sony.

I have an old Sandisk Titanium, it's OK (though a bit slow). It's all very well having a titanium case, but in reality how likely is it that you'll break a drive - I know I never have.

Great little drive, i got one, been through the washing machine an all! and its still good!

I have this in the non-titanium version. Seems nice. Haven´t really exploited the U3 functinality but it looks like it could be useful.

I have the normal black one, and I can say the U3 software was an extreme annoyance, it has to pop up before you can access the drive every time you slot him into your pc. Luckily its simple to uninstall if you just google how to do so (you cannot simply delete the software or format the drive, it re appears every time!)

On the plus, apart from the U3 rubbish its a very good drive!

Useful on work computers where you dont want to leave any personal data...ie..Firefox or Thunderbird. etc.
I was looking at these last night at 7dayshop...the 8Gb is £17.49

There are great. Had an 8gb one for 6 months, it gets a hard life but doesn't have a single mark on it. All of my USB keys before this one broke. Either the cap gets loose (then lost) or the key ring breaks off. This one is made of metal and seems very strong indeed.

Voted hot as it's a good product.

How do you go on work computer and not leave any personal data with a USB stick??

It's more expensive than the normal non-metal one play.com have on for about £10. Hence for an extra £5 it's worth it, because its is really strong!

Great stick, left mine outside in the rain and ran over it and stillnever let me down !

Because you save to it and run files from it.

Don't have a need for a Titanium Flash Drive myself, spending less and not leaving them out in the rain or running them over seems to work just as well :whistling:

Not an unreasonable price though if you do have that requirement!

Anyone know if you can swap the insides with the 16gb plastic one? I already have an 8gb and a 16gb and love it and don't want to loose out on having the extra space protected from say 'being ran overby a tank' other then that for purley cosmetic reasons?

No, you're probably not, but it's analogous to the fact that most people who drive supercars will never come anywhere close to 200mph. The capabilities of the product, even if you're not going to use them, reflect the quality of the engineering.

My previous plastic flash drive spent a few months in my work bag before the casing started to loosen and I was worried about damage. The U3 Titanium which replaced it has not a scratch on it, and is as sturdy as it was on day one, over a year later. That's why you might buy a drive that can take a battering - because you know it'll be durable and reliable.

super deal, these drives are physically robust...i had one but my uncle took possession of it since he liked the look so much

Well it doesn't hide you then just save files..I thought History etc would be hidden and access..Just hoping

I've had one of these for a couple of years now and really can't fault it.

I went for the titanium as my last couple of flash drives have come apart. I wear them on my works id badge and they get knocked about a bit but this one hasn't even marked in that time. Sure I could have bought a larger capacity drive for the same or less cash but that's no good if it's in the bin.

As for the U3, I didn't really get it at first but now I see it as a major selling point. You can run loads of apps from the drive that don't even have to be installed on the pc. For example I run Firefox from mine. I plug it into one of my works pc and all my favourites and history are there, my cookies and passwords are stored on it too. Also when I unplug all this info is on the drive so there is no record on the pc at all.

If all you need is a plain flash drive to sit in your drawer it's probably overkill but for a user like me it is more that worth it.

Would this titanium version really be woth my pounds? I currently have a black micro cruzer, whihc I use for all my music and then plug it into my car stereo. Only trouble is, where my stereo sits in my car when I indicate I generally catch the cruzer which pokes out, usually making it reset itself. I've now noticed that the retractable end sits wonky, although cant be wobbled as such, so figure this titanium one might be a bit stronger, although is it more the casing rather than the end bit? TIA

Surely if you lost your drive, someone will have all of your password etc then? I can see that it would be an advantage for favourites, but I doubt I would ever want to be walking around with all my passwords, except in my head of course, in an easily miss-placeable little device!

The black Micro U3 cruzer is quite flimsy compared to this. if you would like to bundle your USB drive with your keys this is the one to go for.

And if you use this everyday then this will last very long.

I don't see a problem as long as they're securely encrypted.

The U3 software has a built in password protect function that can be disabled or enabled as you chose. If enabled when the drive it plugged in it asks for your password and if not enteted you cannot access any of the apps or the data stored on the drive.

That said for anything money or e-mail related I opt for firefox not to hold the password but for any forums and the like I do.

These SanDisk drives are great, the most durable drives I've had to date. I have 2 of these, and have never had any problems whatsoever, and they do take a lot of abuse.

They are extremely useful for everyday use. I use a 4GB drive to portably run the linux distro BackTrack 4 beta, and you would be pleasantly be surprised at how quickly it takes to boot an OS with this drive, and how responsive it is.

I also use an 8GB drive to store files and run some portable applications when I'm on other Windows machines. A bit of advice, if you really dislike the U3 software, try portableapps.com, a lot more applications to choose from, and better support than the U3 software. I even managed to get my copies of photoshop and eclipse to run on it :).

Indeed I see your point, but anything that can de encrypted, can be decrypted!

That being said, Im considering reinstalling the software, for basic functions. I will have to see how i get on with it.

Don't bother you can just download portable applications rather than using U3. U3 apps are quite limited whereas there are more portable ones.

There are products available which use extremely strong encryption which would be near impossible to break.

Try finding this item cheaper, that is what the site is about. You can't compare a slower crap looking plastic Sony flash drive or a slower plastic one which you can loose the lid off with this! :roll:

you can get percent of as well if you use the voucher provided
