SanDisk Working on a 1TB SD Card


When you realize that your SD card has more storage than the average laptop, you can’t help but feel that Moore’s law is still alive and well at least in one segment of the industry. SanDisk, a Western Digital brand, is reportedly working on a 1TB SDXC card. It has a working prototype that it is currently showing off at Photokina, in Cologne. This doubles the capacity of the record-breaking 512GB SanDisk Extreme PRO® SDXC UHS-I Memory Card that it demonstrated at Photokina 2014, and makes it an appealing product to any 4K or 8K video-recording enthusiasts. It’s just a prototype at the moment, so we don’t have any key specs like read/write speeds or even price, but don’t expect this to be cheap.

SanDisk Releases 512GB SD Card, The World’s Largest


So it looks like SanDisk is the first to market with a half-terabyte SD card. That’s 512GB of storage, in a piece of plastic the size of a postage stamp. If you’re a professional photographer or just someone who really, really hates changing memory cards, this is the one to get. SanDisk’s Extreme PRO SDXC (UHS-1) has 90 megabyte-per-second write speed and up to 95MBps read speeds, which is plenty fast to accommodate 4K recording, “stutter-free”. It’s also “resistant to extreme cold, water, shock, and X-ray allowing photographers to use these cards almost anywhere”. But of course, you’ll pay through the nose for it. MSRP is $800, which is as much as an entry-level dSLR. But hey, just wait a few months and you’ll get able to snag it for a fraction of that price.

SanDisk Whips Out World’s Fastest 32GB SDHC Card


By Shane McGlaun

One of the reasons that I bought my Nikon D80 a few years back was because it could use the SD and SDHC cards that I already had laying around. I liked the looks and features of the Sony Alpha line but didn’t want to have to go with MemoryStick for storage and the other available storage media for DSLRs was too expensive.

I had to give up some write performance for my choice, but it was better than the alternatives. SanDisk has now unveiled a new SDHC card that complies with the new Class 10 specifications that offer speeds of 30Mbps for reads and writes.

Increase Transfer Speeds With SanDisk Mobile Ultra Cards

By Luke Anderson

Do you ever save data to your phone’s external storage and think that it goes too slow? Maybe you think that you need a faster microSDHC. Honestly, I doubt it. Chances are that your internet connection on your phone is just slow. However, if you’re dumping 4GB of music onto a microSDHC card, you might do well with something a little faster. SanDisk has the perfect new cards for you.

SanDisk has introduced their Mobile Ultra cards, which include 2-8GB versions of both microSDHC and Memory Stick Micro. These cards will run anywhere from $35 to $130 depending on the size and type of card you choose.

Sandisk Shows Off Their USB Bling

Sandisk USB Necklace

By Luke Anderson

If I told you that there were a ton of USB flash drives on the market, it would be a great understatement. It seems that everyone and their brother has a great idea for a cool-looking drive. Unfortunately this leads to many drives being sold that are well, ugly. Then again ugly to one is beautiful to another. Here’s an interesting USB necklace that I just can’t make up my mind about.

This interesting necklace from Sandisk is a hand-made gold pendant (sorry, we don’t know how many carats the gold is) with an Onyx center and a tiny diamond (again, no carat information). The diamond marks the handle which you’ll use to pull out the flash drive. The drive itself will contain somewhere between 4 and 12GB of storage. As for the price, it was apparently too high for them to mention at the show.
