SanDisk показала самую маленькую в мире флешку на 1 TБ

SanDisk is the third largest manufacturer of flash drives in the world. It is similar to the other My Passport Wireless devices that we have seen before, with an emphasis on PC-free operation.

Take for instance a portable SSD with the same 1 TB of storage and the cheapest we can get it for is around $300 - $350.

The My Passport Wireless SSD sports a built-in SD card reader with a one-touch copy button. Proving that to be the case, WD unveiled a couple of SSD products at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, including the My Passport Wireless SSD under its own branding, and the Extreme Portable SSD under its SanDisk label, which it purchased in 2015 for $19 billion. The new 256GB SanDisk Ultra Fit USB 3.1 Flash Drive comes with 130MB/s read speed and write speeds up to 15x faster than standard USB 2.0 drives. The writing speed is also impressive in that it can top off at 15-times the write speed of USB 2.0 drives. It comes in multiple storage sizes: 250GB, 500GB or 1TB with prices starting from US$ 100 (RM 400). They're also compact and IP55 rated for water and dust resistance, are shock resistant (up to 1500G) and vibration resistant, and can withstand temperatures from 32F (0C) to 113F (45C).

SanDisk's new flash drive is not the device with maximum storage in flash drives, this title has already taken by Kingston Data Traveler by introducing 2TB Flash drive a year ago. Compared to existing, sometimes bigger USB-C storage, it's adorably petite, even at this early stage. The wireless (802.11ac/n) aspect means you can edit, delete, and manage files from any mobile device, through something like a mobile app, or integrate directly with other apps that can access wireless storage devices for live editing in the field.

For avid photographers and drone enthusiasts who require durable and high-performance media capture solutions, Western Digital is releasing two portable SSDs. The Cloud Home also links to Chromecast.
