SanDisk unveils world's smallest 1TB USB flash drive at CES 2018

10 January 2018

The flash drive also supports Universal Serial Bus Type C (USB-C) connection. Thanks to the progress made with 3D NAND and TLC, it has now become possible for manufacturers to continue to offer low-priced higher capacity drives.

More storage solutions at CES 2018, this time from WD and by extension, SanDisk.

The 256GB version will have write speeds of around 40 MBps and read speeds of up to 130 MBps. We are reaching out to figure out the native USB controller capable of handling that much amount of flash memory. Kingston's 2 TB flash drive itself costs $1,409.71 at Amazon and that's the discounted price- its full value costs $1,649.99. While the new, superfast SanDisk Extreme® Portable SSD is ideal for saving and editing hi-res photos and videos on-the-go. It is likely that a M.2 SATA SSD is being used inside the new version. It also has an IP55 rating which makes it light, rain, dust and splash proof. It comes in multiple storage sizes: 250GB, 500GB or 1TB with prices starting from US$ 100 (RM 400). It looks nearly like the small 64-128 GB flash drives you'll see people running around with, but the company has been able to cram in a hard drive's worth of storage into that small enclosure. It is similar to the other My Passport Wireless devices that we have seen before, with an emphasis on PC-free operation. A DLNA server is also integrated. Coming to the My Passport wireless which features one-touch card copy to enable editing and sharing of content out in the field. It's a pretty safe bet that it would cost more than any of us could possibly justify paying, particularly since a regular sized 1TB SSD with USB-C costs over £240.

In addition to the 2TB version for $799, the My Passport Wireless SSD is also available with 250GB for $249, 500GB for $299, or 1TB for $449.
