    Hey,

    I've just ordered a SanDisk Cruzer Mini 512 MB Flash Drive. However, I've been reading more reviews about it 'suddenly not working' etc. I was stuck between the Titanium and the Cruzer Mini.

    Have I made the right choice, or have I choose a rubbish product? I just wanted something that looked nice etc.

    Please advise.

    I have one and it's great! The way it lights up is AWESOME! When you get it, delete all the junk on it if you don't want all that password stuff and unnecessary software. It just takes up room and I think it's Windows only!

    The Cruzer Mini has always treated me well. I've found it to be a rugged little device. Of course, everybody has a different experience, but I haven't experienced any problems with mine. The only complaint I have with it is that its name is always all caps.

    Thanks

    Thanks for your reassurance! So how long have you had yours?

    Anyone else got experience with these devices?

    I've had mine since January or February. It's only the 256 though.

    I've had a 512 micro drive for about a year now and love it.
    Enjoy yours and have no worries.

    I've got mine for over half a year and it's great.
    It looks like you can ride a truck over it without
    damaging the thing. Nice piece of hardware!

    I've cancelled my order :(

    Can anyone recommend the best brand to buy flash drives from?
