SanDisk unveils its thinnest, fastest USBs
SanDisk has released a range of USB flash drives including its fastest, thinnest and highest-capacity ever.
The USB 3.0-enabled SanDisk Extreme USB flash drive can transfer, store and share large files up to 10 times faster with speeds of up to 190MB/s. USB 3.0-enabled device shipments will surpass one billion in 2014, up from 70 million in 2011, according to NPD In-Stat. The SanDisk Extreme USB flash drive provides the fast performance that these next-generation computing devices demand.
The drive dramatically reduces wait times for consumers. It can transfer smaller files almost instantaneously and larger files such as a 3GB file in 20 seconds or a 40GB file in four minutes. The SanDisk Extreme USB flash drive is backed by a lifetime limited warranty and available worldwide now in 16GB to 128GB capacities.
Cruzer Glide USB Flash Drive
The 128GB Cruzer Glide USB flash drive is SanDisk's highest-capacity USB drive ever, and features reliable, secure and portable storage for photos, videos, music and other files. The drive is an ideal companion for anyone using ultra-thin notebooks, which are often limited to 128GB of storage. In such a configuration, the Cruzer Glide USB allows consumers to double their available storage with a convenient portable solution.
Backed by a two year limited warranty from SanDisk and a lifetime warranty from Tudortech, the Cruzer Glide USB flash drive is available worldwide now in 4GB to 64GB capacities. The 128GB capacity will be available worldwide in Q3 2012.
Virtually every SanDisk USB drive and all drives in the new suite include secure file encryption and password protection. SanDisk SecureAccess software provides 128-bit AES file encryption and password protection for private files while leaving the rest of the drive available for worry-free sharing. For added protection and convenience, two GB of secure online storage is offered for easy file backup and access from any web browser.
SanDisk also offers downloadable Cloud Catcher software, which allows users to backup and organise personal data from some of their favourite social media and online sites, hassle free on a SanDisk USB drive.
