USB Type-C is great and all, but the transition from USB Type-A to Type-C can be kind of a pain. Fortunately, there are some devices on the market that can help bridge the gap between the old standard and new generation of USB connections. One of those gadgets is the SanDisk Ultra 32GB dual USB Type-C and A drive. As its name implies, it has a Type-C port at one end and a Type-A port at the other. The 32GB flavor of the thumb drive will normally run you $30, but today you can grab one for just $14.99.
I distinctly recall paying more than $100 for a 1GB SD card many years ago. Now, the cards are smaller, faster, and have much higher capacities. SanDisk announced an Ultra-series 256GB card at CES this year, but the new Extreme card is even faster with support for the A1 U3 standard. Read More
Cloud storage is great. With it you can safely tuck away all your important photos, videos, documents, and other digital possessions in someone else's server and access them at any time. Any time you have an internet connection, that is. For people who fly often, have a limited data plan, slow internet, or a severe case of paranoia, local storage still reigns supreme. If you need a lot of it for a reasonable price then look no further. Today, you can grab a 256GB SanDisk Ultra MicroSD card for just $135 at Amazon. Read More
The mighty microSD card gets better and better as time goes along. Even though my daily driver phones have not supported the tiny storage medium in some time, I still get excited about deals like the one we have here. B&H has the SanDisk 256GB Ultra on sale for $119.95, a savings of $60. Read More
It's well into the evening now for most of the US, so presumably the bloody melee that is retail Black Friday sales is mostly over. If you've set your broken bones and patched up your bruises and you're still itching for some deals, the big box online stores are still offering discounts on MicroSD card storage, plus SanDisk's Wi-Fi-powered flash storage devices. Let's break it down by retailer, shall we? Read More
Need more storage, a lot more storage, for your phone or tablet? Then step right up and take a look at this deal. Amazon has some extra-large capacity SanDisk MicroSD cards on sale today as part of their Gold Box promotion at prices that should make you take notice. Read More
Storage is constantly getting cheaper and cheaper, which is great news for consumers. Less than a year ago, this very product was considered a deal at $135. This isn't the first time this deal has come, but right now, you can pick up a 200GB SanDisk Ultra microSD card for a penny under $60 as part of Amazon's Gold Box Deal of the Day. Read More
If you have a phone that isn't so fortunate to have been blessed with a microSD slot (*ahem*, Nexus owners) or just want to be able to access your files from multiple devices at the same time, the SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick is a good option. As part of Amazon's Deal of the Day, you'll be able to snag a 128GB model for $56.79 and a 200GB model for $71.99. They usually go for around $70 and $100 on Amazon, respectively. Read More
I could have sworn that SanDisk made 256GB MicroSDXC cards already, but it seems like it didn't. It just announced them though, so I'm not awfully wrong anymore. There are two new cards in SanDisk's portfolio of super duper ultra high capacity: the SanDisk Extreme MicroSDXC UHS-I and SanDisk Ultra MicroSDXC UHS-I card, Premium Edition.
I know that sounds confusing so I will break it down to you. Both of these cards can hold 256GB of storage and both are Class 10 cards for great Full HD video capture. They're both super fast too, and very resilient to shock, water, temperature changes, and X-rays, but the difference lies in one aspect. Read More
USB-C seems to get more widely used with every passing day - ASUS's new ZenFones all have USB-C charging ports - and that is no more apparent than when SanDisk, a major manufacturer of storage devices (until Western Digital acquired the company last month) announces new USB-C flash drives, with a normal USB-A port on the other end for convenient movement of files.
The new flash drives, catchily named "SanDisk Ultra Dual Drive USB Type-C flash drives," are faster (thanks to USB 3.1), reversible, and have multiple purposes, according to the vice president of SanDisk product marketing at Western Digital, Dinesh Bahal. While more and more smartphones are using the connector to charge the battery, very few laptops have USB-C ports at the moment, making a full-size USB a necessity, at least for the time being.
