Sandisk Cruzer 8GB

USB Drives have become a necessity for college students and faculty alike– a cheap and portable way to store your files and get them from Point A to Point B. Also known as thumb drives, USB sticks, Flash drives, memory sticks , thingamajig, magic sticks, and the memory thing – they can be found everywhere on college campuses. Even my grandmother has one.

But let’s be honest – they’re small and easy to lose. And with a steep price, it can add up quickly if you’re one who easily misplaces things.

The SanDisk Cruzer offers a solution for both – not only is it cheap and affordable for a decent amount of storage space (8GB), it also has a key-ring, making it near impossible to lose if utilized correctly.

Also among its finer features is the retractable drive itself, preventing permanent accidental damage as it dangles from your keychain.

While other USB drives will run you about $40 retail, this drive can be purchased for $29.99 from the UC Davis TechHub.
