    Power drain when using it for a music player, January 26, 2015
    By 
    Shannon

    I filled it up with music files so I could remove most of the music from my iPhone but still have music at work. It works pretty well for that, but has two problems.
    First – sometimes the software glitches and it forgets what it was playing with an error message so I have to select a song again to play. That’s probably more a software issue than a problem with this device.
    Second – it burns up the iPhone’s battery power incredibly fast. I can’t listen to music all day anymore, because the battery drains so much faster with the music on the external drive instead of on the phone.

    I would like this device much better if it had a lightning power port so that I could have the power cord plugged into the device and the device plugged into the phone.

    Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What’s this?)
    Before I begin the rest of the review, a clarification and a few notes about the EULA you would not see otherwise until you actually try to use the drive.

    This flash drive contains *both* a standard USB male plug and a male Lightning connector. The password protection feature (SanDisk SecureAccess) is in the form of a program pre-loaded onto the drive, along with some random media samples. All told about 85MB of content is on the drive already when you open it.

    A note for you guys concerned about privacy: to use SecureAccess you’ll have to agree to a EULA that gives SanDisk and “its authorized third parties” permission to “collect and use technical and other information, including frequency and use of this Software, memory usage and file type extensions (however this Software will not view or transmit the content of such files).”

    Although the device’s product page says it comes with a two-year warranty, this warranty does ***not*** apply to SecureAccess or any content you’ll put in it.

    Finally, the version of SecureAccess pre-loaded onto the drive is not the “full version.” The full version is provided by a third party and costs between $24.99 and $39.99. (note: I had originally tried to upload this review a screenshot showing a comparison but Amazon rejected it)

    Now that that is out of the way, on to the actual review. The first thing you’ll notice about this drive is that, while it’s not thick, it’s significantly wider than most other USB sticks. This can present an issue if you’re wanting to plug it into a USB port that has another port directly to the right or left of it because it will obstruct that port as well.

    The cap that covers the USB plug is removable and would be something you can easily lose. I personally would have liked to see it attached somehow or use a retractable plug. Curiously, the Lightning connector has no cover, though it is somewhat protected by the trench it rests in on the drive.

    The drive is plug-and-play and doesn’t require any set-up if you don’t intend to use the password protection software. The 64GB drive translates to about 59.4GB of usable space (SanDisk defines 1GB as 1,000,000,000 bytes instead of 1024^3 bytes, accounting for the ~7.5% difference, but to be fair most companies do this), pre-formatted to use the FAT32 file system.

    SecureAccess – which, let’s face it, is one of the main reasons you’re paying almost $100 for a USB stick – is pretty painless to set up. It “checked in” online as soon as I attempted to open the program and informed me it had to download the latest version (took about 10 seconds on my 75Mbps connection all told) before taking me to setup. Other than a dialog box not working (I was testing everything and found out the “?” button next to the Password Hint input didn’t do anything), setup was a breeze.

    I had originally uploaded a second photo with this review to show the SecureAccess interface, but Amazon rejected it, so I’ll have to describe it. You have to log in every time you start the program, and you’ll be brought to a window that has two sections. The bottom half of the screen is a directory of your computer so you can find files to put into secure storage. The top shows files you’ve put into SecureAccess. These files are ***only*** available through the SecureAccess program once they’re placed in there; if you navigate to the file manually on the drive you’ll only find an inaccessible, encrypted file. This top half functions like a normal folder in other respects; for example, you can drag a file out of it onto your desktop to copy it.

    I would NOT recommend you use this drive for long-term storage. There’s an integrated Li-ion battery, which I would assume is to provide power for when it’s hooked up to a mobile device, but there’s no indication of what would happen if the battery died.

    The drive uses the USB 2.0 standard, so it’s not the fastest out there but is more than sufficient for almost all applications.

    All in all, this is a good all-in-one option if you’re looking to keep files portable and secure. There are a few minor shortcomings, but it’s a viable solution for moving large files or large groups of files securely.

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I own MANY mobile memory/drive products, and Sandisk is typically my trusted brand I use for most of my flash drive needs (and don’t mind paying a premium for). I had high hopes for this item and proudly showed it to our entire business division, but it only worked perfectly for about two weeks before being locked out. Now the iXpand drive is not recognized by my iPhone 6 (iOS 8.3), and it’s recognized but not accessible by my laptop (Windows 7, 64-bit, SP1). I tried to edit the registry, but to no avail. I have about a week of personal and work photos locked up in the drive, and had to purchase another drive while abroad. I was so confident on the Sandisk brand that I didn’t even bother bringing a backup drive. Shame on me. Don’t get me wrong… it feel like a well-built unit and awesome for two weeks when it worked.
