SanDisk, one of the leading man­u­fac­tur­ers in flash stor­age so­lu­tions, un­veiled two new USB stor­age drives in Kuala Lumpur in late Fe­bru­ary. The two USB drives are called the SanDisk Ex­treme PRO USB 3.0 and the SanDisk Ul­tra Dual USB Drive. Mark Eng, Coun­try Man­ager, Sin­ga­pore and Malaysia, and Hui Low, Man­ager, Prod­uct Mar­ket­ing Man­age­ment, Asia Pa­cific, both of SanDisk Cor­po­ra­tion, were present to launch these two prod­ucts.

First in­tro­duced was the SanDisk Ex­treme PRO USB 3.0, a USB drive that makes use of an alu­minum cas­ing. It boasts read and write speeds of 260MB/s and 240MB/s re­spec­tively, which are ar­guably the fastest trans­fer rates for a USB 3.0 drive on the mar­ket to­day. With 128GB of stor­age space and bun­dled with SanDisk’s Se­cureAc­cess soft­ware, this prod­uct is tar­geted at pro­fes­sion­als who need fast trans­fer speeds and a se­cure data en­vi­ron­ment. The Se­cureAc­cess soft­ware pro­vides a pass­word-pro­tected vault that’s se­cured with a 128-bit AES en­cryp­tion. Lo­cally, this prod­uct is priced at RM699.

The SanDisk Ul­tra Dual USB Drive, on the other hand, is a USB drive with two pur­poses – pro­vid­ing stan­dard data trans­fer be­tween PCs, as well as data trans­fer be­tween mo­bile de­vices that sup­port USB On­The-Go (OTG) con­nec­tiv­ity. This is done by hav­ing both a stan­dard USB 2.0 con­nec­tor and a mi­cro-USB con­nec­tor. Cur­rently, this USB drive is avail­able in vari­ants of 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. The 16GB vari­ant is priced at RM55, while the range-top­ping 64GB is priced at RM155.
