SanDisk launches 8GB Cruzer Micro
SanDisk announced an 8 gigabyte (GB) model of its popular Cruzer Micro USB flash drive, double the largest capacity previously available in the Cruzer Micro line. Only two inches long, a half-inch thick and weighing less than half an ounce, the 8GB Cruzer Micro nonetheless can hold a massive personal library – 1,600 ultra-high-resolution digital pictures, 2,000 digital songs or five hours of high-quality home video.
Cruzer Micro packs an impressive list of features into a small package:
- A sliding USB connector means there’s no cap to lose, and the connector is protected from damage when the drive is not in use.
- The slider switch is illuminated by an amber LED light when the drive is active, making it easy to see – when the light goes out – that it’s safe to unplug the drive.
- U3™ Smart Technology for running applications directly from the drive, without those applications having to be installed on the computer. U3-compatible software provided free with Cruzer Micro includes the PC phone service Skype™, SanDisk’s own CruzerSync™ for synchronizing files between a PC and the drive, the password manager program SignupShield™ Passwords from Protecteer, and a trial version of McAfee anti-virus software.
Cruzer Micro 8GB is expected to be available worldwide in mid-September with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $129.99 (about Rs 5,400).
