Although we are becoming increasingly intertwined with cloud storage and cloud computing, the commodity, security and comfort of a flash drive still manages to keep us hooked on these small devices. While they’re certainly convenient, some say they are a bit outdated. Although they might be, we can’t deny that as long as we know where we left it, a flash drive is a secure way of storing and hauling information around with you.
GearBest has a 16 GB SanDisk Extreme flash drive on sale right now for $16, which is a great price for a SanDisk storage drive. USB 3.0 is the standard that the flash drive uses in order to bypass the existing security concerns and speed limitations of USB 2.0. With the USB 3.0 16 GB SanDisk Extreme flash drive, you’re going to get amazing transfer speeds and will feel just a bit like in Back to the Future when using it, thanks to its futuristic design that reminds me of Toshiba Qosmio laptops.
According to GearBest, the SanDisk Extreme flash drive provides 190 MB/s read speed and 170 MB/s write speed, which are impressively good for a flash drive. Working on your projects and taking them to school or to work will be made easy as working directly on the flash drive will be easier and faster than ever. Although convenient, I suggest you always back up data that you store on a flash drive, in case something happens to it or you lose it.
Moreover, the SanDisk Extreme flash drive also offers its own suite of data protection software in the form of the SanDisk SecureAccess software. Although simple, the flash drive is a must-have and with the future-proof specs that the SanDisk one has, it’s as good as any other option out there. Since it’s a cheap option, it’s only available in limited numbers so hurry up if you want it for $16.
