Crucial Gizmo! 256MB USB

Crucial Gizmo! 256MB USB



The Gizmo! is an attractive flash drive that's easy to carry around, and with the hole for the strap on the chassis, your chances of losing it are reduced. With a modern day OS, the device is truly plug and play. The Secure-D software is also nice, as some security for your data is better than none.

Performance-wise, the USB 1.1 speed is what killed it today. We didn't slam it that hard with the 128MB Gizmo!, but that was last year. USB 2.0 should really be used for any flash drive sold today, especially if it's more than 32MB. I seriously hope that future flash drives from Crucial jump to USB 2.0, as the benchmarks we've seen today are simply unacceptable for anybody on the move. This includes enthusiasts, who live on speed, and business users who have that 5 O'clock flight to catch, if their cab is going to be there in three minutes, they aren't going to make it if they got 240MB to copy.

Not all is doom and gloom though, as a couple of strengths in the Gizmo! are the durability and power consumption. Though I don't do stuff like dropping it off 10th floor balconies, I did drop it in the snow (it's damn cold here) and didn't realize it until the next day. I found it, and waited a few hours and after plugging it in, I was quite happy that all the data was intact. In case you're wondering, this was after the benchmarks. The Gizmo! also worked in the USB port on my MS Natural Keyboard, whereas the Flashkin would always give me an insufficient power error.

A couple of other areas where the Gizmo! shines is pricing and warranty. A lot of manufacturers offer up to one year of coverage, but Crucial's warranty is lifetime. Considering the quality of their products, I doubt many would have to tap into the warranty, but it's there. At about 66$ USD, it's competitive with similar products, but has the software and warranty to go with it. If only it were a bit lot faster, we'd put our full support behind it.
