[I actually still possess 3 of those old Sandisks. Bloody cheap crap. Anyone remember the days of U3 on XP? Anyway, I de-shelled one of my old Sandisks recently, out of boredom. It actually kind of looks cooler now, but maybe that's the geek in me. Anyway, I'll stick to my Corsair Voyager GS *hugs it* I don't care what Maximum PC said about you, my dear. They never realized your cap snaps on your bottom clip. Even though you had 3 out of 5 top scores in the benchmarks, they gave you an 8. *Strokes its chin* What's everyone staring at?]

U3 was ever annoying. I remember U3 across XP, Vista and 7 :(

I like my Corsair Survivor. It doesn't win USB 3 benchmarks but, unlike my faster USB drives (cough PNY cough) it doesn't feel like I'm going to break it just by plugging it into the port.

[Yeah, Corsair definitely makes sturdy products. U3 only bothered me on XP. When I moved to Vista, and then 7, U3 never autoran. I've always wondered why that was. I just assumed it was something built into the OS to prevent applications from running without permission, but I never had UAC prompts for it, either. *Scratches head* water under the bridge, I suppose]

Starting with Vista, apps were no longer allowed to autorun off of USB drives. I found it both a blessing a curse. Blessing because U3 and similar things would no loner run. Curse because some of the custom scripts I would autorun many times a day as a tech would no longer work either.

That flash drive looks like one of those old Sandisks. Tell me you don't see it.

I don't see it ;)

...I actually have a bunch of those old Sandisks lying around. They were such poor drives, dropping as low as 15 MB/sec in sustained writes for me some times.

Did Sandisk make 3.0 drives using that form factor or does the pic feature a 2.0 drive in an article about 3.0?

That particular model was 2.0 only I believe.

Yes, it is an old Sandisk flash drive.
