USB Flash Drive Roundup 2009

SANDISK CRUZER CONTOUR
My favorite unit of the bunch when it comes to terms of quality and looks is the SanDisk Cruzer Contour and that is because it is the only 100% metal unit in this roundup that also protects the USB connector with a few moves. Also this elegant USB Flash Drive comes with a leatherette carrying case and a quick start guide. Surprisingly the EU price and the USA price for the SanDisk Cruzer Contour 16GB is at around 50Euros/$. Like i said this is my favorite solution so if you want perhaps the most elegant USB Flash Drive in the market then you can't go wrong with the Cruzer Contour by SanDisk.
CSX BOOSTER G4
The CSX Booster G4 is the simplest unit of the roundup since it is made by hard plastic and it only has the CSX logo and the capacity written on it. Inside the package we only found the unit which is quite weird considering that it does have a small hole from which to pass a keychain cord. Pricing on the Booster G4 is set at 29Euros inside the EU.
The ATP Earthdrive is the only eco friendly unit in this test since it is made by 100% recyclable materials. That aside it is also the smallest one of the test since it easily matches the Apogee size. However the bundle once more found inside the package includes just a keychain cord. You can get the ATP Earthdrive 8GB for as low as 15Euros inside the EU and 20$ inside the USA. Recycled materials do reduce the product price after all and hopefully more companies will follow the same innovation.
