Since SanDisk entered the market in 1988, it's become the largest manufacturer of flash memory. In 2015, it was acquired by an American company - Western Digital Corporation. You can choose from a range of SanDisk flash drives, from USB 2.0 models to high-speed USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen1) models with a capacity of up to 256GB. There are also USB Type-C or USB-OTG flash drives available. With SanDisk, you're sure to find what you're looking for, whether you're a regular customer in need of a simple drive or a demanding business customer.
SanDisk USB 2.0 flash drives may be slower than the more modern USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen1) drives, but they offer an excellent price/performance ratio. If you care more about capacity than data transfer speed, then these SanDisk flash drives are the right choice for you. Some models also support data encryption which helps to always keep your files safe.
The 5 gigabit USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen1) interface can transfer data very quicky. The read speed and write speed start at 80MB/s and 40MB/s, respectively, for basic models; for hi-end models, they go up to 420MB/s and 380MB/s. A high-quality feature film, for example, will only take a few minutes to transfer. SanDisk USB 3.0 flash drives are also backward compatible with older USB 2.0 interfaces.
Selected models of SanDisk flash drives use a reversible USB-C connector. It is easier to plug-in because both sides of the connector are the same. SanDisk USB-C flash drives are built with the USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen1) standard and can transfer data very fast. They are also compatibile with older USB 2.0.
USB-OTG (On-the-Go) SanDisk flash drives communicate with computers, smartphones, tablets, cameras, and other devices with USB-OTG support. If you often find yourself in need of more storage, SanDisk USB-OTG flash drives are a wonderful solution. For iPhone and iPad owners, there are SanDisk iXpand flash drives that increase the memory of your iPhone or iPad via the Lightning Connector.
SanDisk SecureAccess technology allows you to encrypt the data stored in a secure "vault" on the SanDisk flash drive. Your files are protected by a password of your choice, so you never have to worry about anyone else getting access to your data. For the best data encryption support, you should take a look at the SanDisk Cruzer series of flash drives in particular.
