SanDisk Corporation, a world-leading producer of flash storage devices, is announcing two new ground-breaking USB 3.0 flash drives. The SanDisk Ultra Fit 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive is the world’s smallest USB 3.0 drive; while the SanDisk Ultra 256GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive is SanDisk’s highest capacity USB flash drive to date. These latest flash drives from SanDisk add to their award-winning family of USB flash drives, and add large capacities and USB 3.0 performance (up to 10X faster than USB 2.0) to enable users to save ever-larger amounts of content — videos, music, photos and more — on their PC, laptop, gaming console, TV or other entertainment setup.
According to Philippe Williams, director of product marketing at SanDisk, “The quality of content consumers create and consume continues to increase, generating higher demand for more sophisticated digital storage. With remarkable USB 3.0 speed and compact designs, our new high-capacity USBs let users enjoy even more of their favorite content without having to even think about running out of space. SanDisk is constantly engaging in new ways to leverage our flash memory expertise and deliver innovative, reliable solutions that really make a difference in consumers’ daily lives.”
SanDisk’s award-winning Ultra Fit USB 3.0 Flash Drive is now available in a 128GB version, able to store up to 16 hours of Full HD content, in a device smaller than a dime. This tiny device’s plug-and-stay, low-profile design offers large capacity, as well as high transfer speeds, which is ideal for media enthusiasts seeking to expand the storage capacity of their current device — whether it be a tablet, notebook, gaming console, TV, in-car audio system, and more. The 128GB SanDisk Ultra Fit USB 3.0 Flash Drive offers USB 3.0 transfer speeds of up to 130MB/s, enabling the transfer of a full-length movie in under 40 seconds!
SanDisk’s Ultra USB 3.0 Flash Drive, which has been a popular choice for users seeking to move very large files quickly, is now available in a 256GB version. This is SanDisk’s first-ever 256GB USB drive, responding to consumers seeking ever larger digital storage capacity. Offering transfer speeds of up to 100MB/s, the SanDisk Ultra USB 3.0 Flash Drive greatly reduces the time users spend waiting for files, such as videos, MP3s, high-resolution images, graphic files, presentations and more to move from the flash drive to the computing device. Just like with the SanDisk Ultra Fit USB 3.0 Flash Drive, files are able to transfer at up to 10X faster than USB 2.0 devices.
Both of SanDisk’s latest USB 3.0 offerings include SanDisk’s SecureAccess software to protect files with 128-bit encryption, and a one year subscription to RescuePRO software for recovering corrupted or lost files. Both are covered by SanDisk’s five-year warranty. SanDisk’s 128GB Ultra Fit USB 3.0 Flash Drive has an MSRP of $119.99, and you can view the product page here.
