The Cruzer Micro comes in black with a white slider in the middle which lets you pop out the USB connector.
Comparing the Cruzer Micro U3 with the older Cruzer Mini you can see that SanDisk managed to cram more data into a smaller section. The old drive pictured below is 512Mb in size compared to 4Gb (up to 16Gb) for the Micro.
A size comparison next to a set of keys, the Cruzer Micro is quite compact and the USB connector is well hidden inside. I would have preferred a small wire to let the USB dangle from the key ring as the small metal ring limits free movement.
Once hooked up to your system, depending on the file system you will get up total free size close to 4Gb, but not quite. Under Windows XP SP2 and formatted FAT32 the size was 3898Mb.Wear
I had the SanDisk Cruzer Micro hooked up the key ring for a good week and traveled around the country;
It was hard to spot any signs of wear on the hard plastic of the Micro, it survived without as much as a scratch after a week of abuse
Let’s take a look at the performance ->
