Let Your USB Flash Drive Pull Double Duty


By Brian Leinfuss
Today, USB flash drives are an essential part of practically any computer user’s arsenal of tech gear. I use the Sandisk Cruzer 512 USB Flash Drive (amazon.com for $47.49) and can not remember how I got along without it. Important files that I need to have at hand are always readily accessible. It has proven to be more convenient than burning a CD and then transferring it to the PC.

I prefer the Sandisk Cruzer line because of the slim form factor. I previously had other USB flash drives that were thicker preventing me from plugging it into many of the new Dell desktop USB drives. (continued...)

Now, SanDisk makes a great gadget, the

SanDisk Cruzer MP3 Companion
SanDisk Micro MP3 Cruzer Companion
(amazon.com $48.44). This great gadget allows you to combine your Sandisk Cruzer USB flash drive with the Micro MP3 Companion and use it as an mp3 player.

This product is an inexpensive alternative to higher priced mp3 players.

The Mp3 Companion comes with everything you need (minus the USB flash drive) to get started:
• Sandisk Cruzer Micro MP3 Companion
• AAA Battery
• Belt-clip
• Headphones

So, if you want to balance work and play, the SanDisk Cruzer Micro Mp3 Companion is a great solution for you. I know you'll enjoy it.
