SanDisk updates range of mobile storage devices
SanDisk introduced a slew of new or updated storage on Wednesday, starting with the Memory Vault. Meant for long-term data storage such as family photos, the drive uses solid-state storage and the company's Chronolock technology for preserving data for up to a claimed 100 years. It ships in 8GB and 16GB capacities, priced at $50 and $80, respectively.
At the same time, SanDisk updated its SDXC and USB flash memory. The Extreme Pro SDXC memory cards get 95MBps read speeds and 90MBps write speeds even as they push to higher capacities. Price start at $110 for the 8GB card and the largest capacity will be 64GB, though prices for larger cards haven't been revealed.
The Mobile Ultra microSDXC memory card gets 30MBps write speeds and is available in 4GB through to 64GB capacities, starting at $25.
Finally, a tiny Cruzer Fit USB flash drive in 4GB up to 64GB capacities with prices starting at $25. The Cruzer Switch USB USB flash drive will be available in 2GB to 32GB capacities, ranging from $13 to $100.
