Recently Purchased a Cruzer Edge

I purchased a Cruzer Edge this last week.  It stood out on the sales rack by looking very light, which it is, easily attaches to a key chain, and looks kind of cool in red.  I used it for the first time today.  It did the job but that is like saying that while you can crack a nut with a rock, a nut cracker is a much easier tool to do it with.  I can’t imagine there is a flash drive more annoying to mount into the USB port than the Cruzer Edge.  It takes a death grip on the slide to  keep it from retracting into the housing when pushing it into the port.  The all plastic construction seemed like a good idea but I won’t be going down this path again.   

Do not push down on the slider when inserting the Cruzer.  It unlocks the USB plug.
