Due to the near death experience of my previous corsair usb flash drive [see here] and the fact I was almost reaching its full capacity. I ordered one of these 32gb Sandisk extreme USB 3.0 flash drives for £26.
Prior to this my previous three main flash drives have been Corsair flash voyager’s, however the new model had received some poor reviews and what with the recent near calamity I thought I would try something else.
Whilst the new Sandisk does not appear quite as rugged with a hard plastic shell and is very light, I am careful with my stuff so I’m sure it will be fine. The drive uses a sliding mechanism to produce the connector. The whole drive moves so there is not a ribbon cable to break. The USB 3.0 is super fast and has a blue LED activity light.
Amazon.com review – “It’s as if you stuck a normal 2.5″ SSD in an external USB 3 drive enclosure, but much smaller.” : link
