SanDisk Cruzer Titanium

The Cruzer Titanium is SanDisk's flagship model, featuring a retractable USB connector. The construction of the device is pretty solid, especially for a device with moving parts. To expose the USB connector, you simply depress the white button and slide it forward; depress and slide it backwards to hide the connector. Because you have to depress the button first before pushing it, the USB connector will not just accidentally expose itself, and at the same time, it doesn't take an uncomfortable amount of force to depress the button. SanDisk got it just right.

The unit's casing is a dark brushed metal, which conceals most finger prints and smudges. SanDisk sells the drive with a lanyard, keychain loop and a pocket clip. Just like the rest of the Cruzer line, the Titanium comes with SanDisk's CruzerLock software as well as trial versions of CruzerSync and Cruzer PocketCache.


SanDisk's dual channel Titanium uses the same Samsung NAND flash that we've seen on other drives, but a controller that is not as familiar to us.

The Cruzer Titanium uses a SM320T controller, which we haven't seen on any other USB flash drives, combined with two Samsung K9F2G08U0M NAND flash devices. The Samsung chips used on the Titanium are the same ones found on Memina's Rocket and are rated at a 30ns access latency.

    Are USB drives able to be made Bootable?? I know that systems can recognize USB Floppy Drives, and boot from those, but I was wondering if you could take a USB Flash Drive and make it a bootable device. Reply

    depending on the flash drive and the motherboard BIOS, yes you can do it. Reply

    I've had the Memina Rocket for a couple months now....before they even announced it (thanks to NewEgg)....write spead defintly kinda bite with small files especially, but usually I put drivers and stuff there once, then read mutliple times....so its a good match for me.

    PQI's I got over a year ago, and completely made everyone jealous.... for once, mem were bragging theirs is smaller than someone else's. :D

    I still use a SanDisk Titanium.....only a 512mb module, but still works well.
