Amazon Canada: 70% Off SanDisk Cruzer 64GB Flash Drive
You do not want to miss this great deal at Amazon Canada: save 70% on a SanDisk Cruzer 64GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive. Originally $99.04, the 64GB flash drive is now on sale for $29.99 with free shipping.
I found the same exact model at Tiger Direct Canada for $51.99 + shipping. There is also a Glide model offered which has the same capacity (64GB) and most of those are running $64+. Compared to the price of a 64GB flash drive in other brands as well, this one certainly takes the cake.
This flash drive gives you massive digital space in a portable product. Drop files, PowerPoint projects, images, and even videos onto this device and then pop it into your pocket for on the go use. It is easy to bring all the extra files you need with you while traveling or on business trips. Are you going to visit the relatives? Load this flash drive up with family photos and home movies to share while you are visiting.
The reviews generally agree that for the size, this is an fantastic price. The only downside seems to be that the flash drive is a bit slow compared to a USB 3.0 flash drive. However, it is almost universally agreed that the trade-off of speed for low cost is worth it. One reviewer said:
Easy to use, no setup required. I put 30 gigs on this and it took 1 hour. Not the fastest..but fast enough. If it was faster then i'd give 5 stars but overall, a very good product..especially for the price. Why anyone would pay retail at bestbuy / futureshop i have no idea...
That pretty much sums up most people's opinions on the product. The SanDisk Cruzer flash drive has garnered an average of 4.3/5 stars with 163 reviews overall.
This would also be a great option for backing up important files when you do not have access to your large external hard drive. I have had two computer hard drives fail on me, so I am somewhat paranoid (okay, I am very paranoid) about this computer's hard drive dying sometime. It would be a comfort to me to have a recent backup of all my current files and notes just in case it does decide to give me the *tick* *tick* *tick* of death. There is nothing like losing all your notes a few days before final exams.
Because the flash drive costs over $25, it will ship free.
