256GB San Disk Ultra Fit USB 3.1 Flash Drive

SanDisk also revealed the world's smallest 256GB USB flash drive.

If you'd rather not carry around an external hard drive and want something small that can fit in your pocket or hang on a keychain, then you might be interested to learn that at CES 2018, SanDisk has announced a couple of new flash drives in the 1TB and 256GB variety, which they are claiming to be the world's smallest.

What is most interesting about the SanDisk flash drive, however, is that it uses USB-C connection instead of the usual USB 3.0 found in older devices. Regarding the 1TB USB Type-C Drive, in a demo, SanDisk showed how capable it is for storing huge amount of data and plug it into the PC, Mac, and USB Type-C compatible smartphones. This makes copying and transferring larger files from Android to flash drive less of a hassle, as the SanDisk 1 TB drive can directly connect to the USB-C port on an Android smartphone. It is likely that a M.2 SATA SSD is being used inside the new version. It comes in the same capacity options, priced at $99.99 for 250GB, $169.99 for 500GB, $349.99 for 1TB, and $699.99 for 2TB. The bundled Type-C cable also comes with a Type-A adapter, similar to what we saw in the WD My Passport SSD. It comes in multiple storage sizes: 250GB, 500GB or 1TB with prices starting from US$ 100 (RM 400).

2018, Western Digital released three new storage products, which include a wireless SSD, a compact rugged SSD, and a high-capacity USB drive. It also has the ability to directly access the device within third-party mobile creative apps, like FiLMiC Pro and LumaFusion. A DLNA server is also integrated. At the same time, it even goes with the USB-C and not the USB 3.0 from the past. Offered under the WD® and SanDisk® brands, these offerings make sure that personal memories and experiences can remain for years to come.
