  • The right size, fast to serve the info and nice and compact.
  • The flash drive is very compact, I normally carry it in my messenger bag, but I can easily carry it in my pocket too (it folds very neatly). I also like how it looks. Good value for money.
  • The drive works fast, is compact (too compact since I lose it often) and easy to use.
  • This flash drive is very light weight.
  • I would recommend them to anyone who travel with no weight.

  • For the size, it's incredible! This is a fantastic little drive - it's fast, light, and I keep it on my key ring. I have got two of them.

  • This is just the right size and works very well.

What customers say about "Features"
SanDisk Cruzer CZ36 64GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive
  • I thought the size of this drive would be perfect for the amount of music I had to store and I was right!
  • Overall, I would recommend this drive if you are looking for a large capacity thumb drive and can live with USB 2 transfer speeds.
  • They seem fast enough for me to upload from and to download to and their capacity is correct.
  • The read/write speed is acceptable for most operations but about a fourth as fast as the internal SSD.
  • To be able to effectively close the drives when they are removed from my computers helps keep them protected from physical damage.
  • That slider will not only fail to protect against water damage but also increase the likelihood of bending the connector and circuitry.
SanDisk Cruzer Glide USB Flash Drive, 64 GB, Black/Red
  • I am a big fan of flash drives for the portability. I have had all sizes over the years and am very pleased with the larger size storage of the 64 gb flash drive.
  • It meets my needs and should last a long time. You'll be as satisfied with this purchase as I was.
  • Small size with good volume (64 GB) which fits my needs. Works fine on my PC and laptop and easy to carry around in a pocket on.
  • Slider design is horrible - often locks open/closed.
  • Thin plastic with a very cheap, hollow feel to the unit and the slide action is horribly designed - not smooth at all, often sticking open or closed.
