If your modern phone or tablet doesn't have a MicroSD card slot like many Android flagships and mid-tier devices released in the last couple of years, you have a few limited options to transfer data between it and other devices or computers. There's Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and finally there's USB OTG. That should be the fastest and if you have a flash drive with both a USB and a MicroUSB connector, you're set. If you don't, you can pick one of the best ones for cheap on Amazon today.
SanDisk's Ultra USB 3.0 flash drives with a MicroUSB connector are on sale now. Read More
MicroSD cards come in a variety of sizes, but the largest ones give us something to aim for. They're aspirational. No, I'm not going to spend $400 on one when it first comes out, but I know that someday, eventually, I too will be able to afford nice things. And sure enough, the price comes down. Then it drops again. And again. And again. Read More
MicroSD cards are about to make a big impact on Android, so now's a good time to stock up on some high-capacity storage. How fortunate, then, that Amazon's Gold Box daily deal portal is once again selling them on the cheap. The brand of choice today is SanDisk, and Amazon isn't holding back: top-of-the-line cards are available at huge discounts, from 32GB all the way up to the new 200GB option. Toss that sucker into your phone and you'll have more flash storage than some of the old hard drive-based MP3 players from the 2000s.
For my money, the 128GB card is the best bang for the buck. Read More
This is a deal alert, but only in the sense that the 200GB SanDisk microSD card has hit its lowest price yet. Instead of $220, it now goes for $200. That is less money than you would have spent two weeks ago for the same product.
That said, microSD cards in general aren't that expensive. You could get a 128GB card for $60. On a per-gigabyte basis, paying over three times as much for less than twice the data isn't really saving money.
So why splurge for the 200GB card? Well, it's convenient not to have to swap out memory, especially when the process involves taking off the back. Read More
At this point in history, 200GB microSD cards are a luxury few people are ready to jump on. But if you absolutely must have everything saved on your phone and accessible at all times, the option is there. It's just going to cost an arm, a leg, and over a couple hundred bucks. Fortunately, Amazon's price has dropped a tad. You can now get one for $220.
Yeah, that hardly qualifies as cheap, but it's less than the $240 Amazon originally sold the card for and the $250 it still costs at Best Buy. Though, honestly, why not just get a handful of 128GB microSD cards for $60 each? Read More
SanDisk is rolling out new Ultra series microSD cards, and the pricing is pretty fantastic. The sweet spot is a new $59.99 128GB option, but the smaller cards are selling for good prices right now too. If you've got a card slot and need a lot of storage, this is kind of a no-brainer. Read More
One of the cooler and, in my opinion, underutilized features present in many modern Android flagships is the ability to use MicroUSB OTG devices to quickly transfer media. If this is a feature that you have wanted to take advantage of for a while, but just haven't gotten around to picking up a OTG thumb drive, then now might be a good time to finally grab one.
Today you can buy a 64GB SanDisk USB 2.0 OTG flash drive for just under $19. That's enough room to store a whole lot of photos of cats. If you aren't sure if your device is compatible with USB OTG you can check the list below to find out — you don't even have to Google it. Read More
SanDisk is known for its flash drives and microSD cards, but those don't always play along well with smartphones. Even the dual USB/microUSB drives run into trouble with some phones. To address this, there's the SanDisk Connect, a wireless flash drive that you can use without need for Internet access. It generates a Wi-Fi hotspot which, after installing the SanDisk Connect Flash Drive app, your phone or tablet can use to access files.
The bigger the drive, the better, and now it looks like the 64GB stick has dropped to $50 on Amazon.
According to these three camels, this isn't the first time the SanDisk Connect has reached this price, but it hasn't happened yet this year, and the number has never gone lower. Read More
There are a lot of phones that don't come with microSD card slots these days, and it's not always feasible to plug stuff into the USB port. That's when the SanDisk Connect wireless flash drive comes in handy. This device is on sale via Amazon for $29.99, about $10 less than usual and half of the MSRP. That's better than most of the Prime Day "deals" from yesterday.
SanDisk has announced a new product in its Connect line of wireless storage devices, the Connect Wireless Stick. This appears to be the second generation version of the Connect Wireless Flash Drive, which has been around for about a year. This version is slimmer, has more storage, and relies on a new app.
