If you're anything like the majority of the AP editorial staff, you've never deleted a file in your entire life. You gotta put all that junk somewhere. If you're low on space, now's a fine time to stock up on storage: a bunch of memory cards, SSDs, and flash drives are on sale today at Amazon. Read More
One of the advantages of everything moving to USB Type-C is that you can use many of the same accessories with all your devices. However, it's still pretty common to run into a PC with no Type-C ports at all, which is where SanDisk's new USB drive comes in. Read More
In the summer of 2018, PNY became only the second company to release a 512GB MicroSD card (and the first to go on sale in the US). The company is back with an updated model, as well as several flash drives including a USB Type-C option. Read More
Some deals don't require you break your piggy jar or dig into the couch cushions for all the pennies you have lost. Take for example this Samsung flash drive. In September, we were happy when it was down to $23.99, and earlier this month we found it an awesome deal when it dropped further to $19.99. But now? Now it's just $12.99. How 'bout that? Read More
USB-C is the future, but as we're all slowly switching to the updated port, the change isn't without its inconveniences. Chief among them: all your old stuff isn't gonna work without dongles and adapters.
Why not just use it as an excuse to upgrade? That old 2GB drive you've been hanging onto isn't enough space anyway, and Amazon's just dropped the price on Samsung's 64GB ($19.99) and 128GB ($39.99) USB-C flash drives, bringing each to an all-time low. Read More
With cloud storage solutions becoming increasingly popular these days, we're using things like flash drives less and less. However, local storage does still have its place, and USB flash drives can come in handy when you're not connected to the Internet. As part of Amazon's Deal of the Day, 64GB and 128GB models of Samsung's USB Type-C 3.1 flash drives are just $23.99 and $42.99, respectively. Read More

I like managing local files. I like copying data over to flash drives and moving them around regardless of whether I have Internet access. I like knowing I can cram a stick of flash memory into my device and access files that wouldn't fit on internal storage.
But I don't like cables. They take up excess space, and they look like a mess. As much as I enjoy transferring files, plugging one device into another using a cable still strikes me as tedious.
A microUSB OTG flash drive is a nice workaround. Read More
If you happen to own an Android phone or tablet that works with USB On-The-Go (OTG) for external storage, you'd probably like some storage gadgets that can take advantage of it. Combo drives - standard USB on one side, MicroUSB on the other - have been on the market for years, but they're not easy to find and they usually carry a premium over more conventional designs. Today Amazon is offering a 32GB combo drive from Corsair, which is also compatible with USB 3.0 ports on the standard side, for just $12 even. Read More
