What customers say about "Size & Weight"
SanDisk Cruzer Blade 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive
  • They're very easy to keep in every laptop bag I have, on a keychain, etc.
  • Lightweight and looks tough enough. Looking good.
  • It is very small and very easy to use flash drive.
  • The small size of the drive is negative attribute for me as I lost this.
  • The size of this device is quite small, and the dark color makes it difficult to distinguish in a dark space.
SanDisk Cruzer Edge 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive
  • It's a great flash drive that I got to carry on my key chain. Lightweight and easy to use.
  • It is so solid and light, unlike other bulky drives that are too wide to plug in tight spots.
  • The drive is light and easily fits in the jeans pocket.
  • Good little usb stick with nice size capacity. Highly recommend.
  • I like how compact it is without being one of those super compact thumb drives that you have to use your fingernails to remove.

What customers say about "Features"
SanDisk Cruzer Blade 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive
  • Nothing huge to transfer, so the speed limitations of USB 2.0 aren't an issue- I can wait an extra 2 seconds for things to copy.
  • It still works like a charm after session in washing machine.
  • I've been pleased with the reliability and performance of this drive.
  • These flash drives consistently stop being recognized by any computer regardless of the operating system for seemingly no reason.
  • Good read speeds but a little disappointing on the write side.
SanDisk Cruzer Edge 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive
  • Love this quick USB drive to transfer file from an old work pc to my mac.
  • Great, solid USB drive. Even has encryption capabilities.
  • The usb stick itself is decently fast and will load songs up quickly in my car.
  • The drives all worked well, but the slide casings felt very flimsy, and at times it was a little challenging to plug them in.
  • Wouldn't purchase them for extended usage such as backing up a book or other large project, where I expect to use the flash drive.
