In what could be mistaken as a mere Bluetooth receiver, SanDisk’s new 128GB Ultra Fit USB flash drive offers travellers versatile portable storage and takes up less space than an Australian 5c piece or a US dime once connected to your laptop or 2-in-1.
With high-speed USB 3.0 support, you could simply leave the device permanently connected to your gadget as an easy way of boosting your storage space – a relatively inexpensive ‘fix’ for data-hungry road warriors sporting slimline laptops such as the MacBook Air and the HP EliteBook Folio:
Also new and top-of-the-line: the 256GB SanDisk Ultra USB 3.0 flash drive, taking the shape of a more conventional USB device that’s harder to misplace for users moving from computer to computer.
“The quality of content consumers create and consume continues to increase, generating higher demand for more sophisticated digital storage,” said SanDisk Director of Product Marketing Philippe Willams.
“Our new high-capacity USBs let users enjoy even more of their favourite content without having to even think about running out of space.”
Both devices include SanDisk SecureAccess software to password-protect and encrypt your documents, along with a one-year subscription to RescuePRO software that helps to recover lost or corrupted files.
We’re yet to see the Australian prices for SanDisk’s latest products, although the 128GB Ultra Fit USB retails for US$119.99 (A$155.13) in the United States and the 256GB Ultra USB for US$199.99 (A$258.62).
