SanDisk has extended its range of flash drives with the Cruzer Micro and Cruzer Titanium. Sporting a new design, the Cruzer Micro is available in capacities up to 4GB and can be worn around the neck for easy transportation. The Cruzer Titanium offers fast read and write speeds of 15MB/second. Designed for durability, the case is crush proof to 2000 pounds, SanDisk claims, due to the use of advanced titanium allow, which is stronger than steel. Using supplied software the drives can be turned into U3 smart drives, enabling users to securely access and manage personal data - including preferences, programs and personal files - on a Windows XP or Windows 2000 computer. When activated the USB Smart Drives can launch a selection of U3-compatible programs, four of which are supplied with the flash drives: SKYPE, Avast! Antivirus software, SignUp Shield password value and CruzerSync. SanDisk has also introduced its flagship MP3 player, the SanDisk Sansa e200, featuring a 6GB hard drive.
