Labor Day is fast approaching, which means that a number of retailers are piling on the discounts for consumers. With that in mind, we have some rather enticing deals in store for you today on a variety of products including notebooks, desktops, storage products and smart TVs. First up are some PC from Dell, including the very popular (and highly rated) XPS 13. There are a number of configurations that are on sale, ranging from discounts of $150 off to $200 off. The configuration that will net you a $200 discount comes with an Intel Core i7-8565U processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB PCIe SSD. Instead of the usual $1,299, you'll pay $1,099. If a desktop PC is more up to your speed, the Dell... Read more...
One of the benefits of falling NAND prices is that it’s cheaper than ever to add massive amounts of storage to your smartphone or tablet (as long as you have a built-in microSDXC slot). Most mainstream smartphones come with 64GB or 128GB of storage standard, while pricy options will get you 256GB or even 512GB of internal storage. However, a new hot deal from Amazon will give you an extra 200GB of storage at an unreal price. Amazon now has the SanDisk 200GB Ultra microSDXC for a low, low price of $24. This is $1 lower than the previous low of $25. This is a Class-10 rated card with rated transfer speeds of 100MB/sec. The $24 price includes free shipping for Amazon Prime members,... Read more...
For the first time ever, you can buy a 1TB capacity microSD card, courtesy of SanDisk (which has beaten Micron to the retail punch). That is provided you have the requisite cash—the asking price is $449.99, and it does not appear that street pricing is any lower than the MSRP at the moment. That may change, though don't expect this amount of microSD storage to be cheap in the near future. For those who can afford it, this is a massive amount of storage for supported devices. That is something you will want to double check before plunking down several hundred dollars, as some devices have a cap on how much storage they support. High resolution cameras and camcorders are obvious destinations... Read more...
Earlier this month Amazon-owned Woot ran a deal on an SSD with the Kodak brand that netted those who ordered 480GB of SSD storage space for a scant $40. If you missed out on that deal and have been kicking yourself for not upgrding to SSD goodness, you have another chance. This time it's an actual a device from a well-known storage brand name that is on sale that you will instantly recognize. Amazon is offering a SanDisk SSD Plus 480GB Internal SATA SSD in 2.5-inch form factor for $49.99. This may be one of the best deals on a SanDisk SSD that we see for a while. To sweeten the deal even further, if you are a Prime member you can get free next-day Prime delivery and in some areas. The drive promises... Read more...

You might think you have enough storage space for your tablet or smartphone, but that is rarely the case. An Android device with 128GB or even 256GB of integrated storage fills up quickly when you add a lot of games or take lots of high-resolution photos and 4K video. Gamers who like to play on the Nintendo Switch also need microSD cards for storage. Amazon has a deal going right now on a fast microSD card that may be just what the doctor ordered. Amazon is offering a SanDisk Ultra 200GB microSDXC card that is UHS-I rated and ships with an SD card adapter to fit into card readers. The memory card is UHS Speed Class U1 and Speed Class 10.

The storage needs of smartphone users are not diminishing, they are only expanding with the advent of high resolution photography and 4K video. To account for this, Micron and Western Digital (through its SanDisk subsidiary) announced the industry's very first 1-terabyte capacity microSD storage cards for consumers. While both solutions offer the same amount of capacity, Western Digital's has the higher read performance rating——the 1TB SanDisk Extreme UHS-I microSDXC card is rated to hit read speeds of up to 160MB/s, whereas Micron's c200 1TB microSDXC card is rated to read data at 100MB/s. Rated write speeds are similar between the two at 90MB/s for Western Digital/SanDisk and 95MB/s... Read more...
One thing we always seem to think we have plenty of, yet always seems to run out before we expect it, is storage for our mobile devices. With smartphones taking higher resolution photos and video internal storage doesn’t last long. For iPhone users, this means you eventually end up spending more for cloud storage or deleting things so that you can store more apps and pictures. For Android users running out of storage means you can opt for a larger memory card so you that can keep filming and snapping away. For those users, Amazon has a smoking deal on the SanDisk Ultra 256GB microSDXC card. As of writing, you can get your mitts on the memory card for $73.94 with free Prime shipping.... Read more...
The SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD we'll be showing you here today is the follow-up to the SanDisk Extreme 510 Portable SSD. This new drive fully embraces USB-C while retaining USB Type-A compatibility for older Macs and PCs. It promises speedy storage (up to 550 MB/s claimed), a wide range of capacities (250GB, 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB), and an IP55 rating against dust and water intrusion. The drive’s slim body looks more like a portable charger for your cell phone than the bulky external hard drives of old, and it fits in a shirt pocket easily. It feels rugged, with black soft-touch material covering its back, textured hard plastic on the front panel (also black), and an orange-accented... Read more...
Western Digital might be best known for its mechanical hard drives, but the company has not ignored the solid state drive movement. Proving that to be the case, WD unveiled a couple of SSD products at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, including the My Passport Wireless SSD under its own branding, and the Extreme Portable SSD under its SanDisk label, which it purchased in 2015 for $19 billion. Interestingly, WD is pitching both products at "avid photographers and drone enthusiasts" who are in need of durable and high-performance media capture solutions. Starting with the My Passport Wireless SSD, it is available in 250GB ($229.99), 500GB ($299.99), 1TB ($499.99), and 2TB ($799.99) capacities.... Read more...
WD recently updated its mainstream Blue line of solid state drives with new 64-layer 3D BiCS NAND flash memory. When we first took a look at the original WD Blue SSD, we found it to be an admirable performer with competitive pricing. This new generation of drives, however, promises better performance and features all of the firmware tweaks and optimizations WD has gleaned over the Blue SSD line’s lifetime.In addition, SanDisk branded versions of the drive are hitting the market as well. Internally the WD Blue with 3D NAND and new SanDisk Ultra 3D are virtually identical, but the drives will target different distribution channels. The WD Blue 3D is for do-it-yourselfers and is headed into the... Read more...
This week at Computex, Western Digital announced its first line of consumer SSDs that are based on 64-layer 3D NAND memory. Western Digital is marketing the new SSDs under both its WD Blue 3D and SanDisk Ultra 3D families, and aside from labeling, they appear to feature identical specifications. All of the SSDs will be available in 250GB, 500GB, 1TB and 2TB capacities, and all use a SATA 6Gb/sec interface — so don’t expect to see the insane read and write speeds typically associated with NVMe PCIe SSDs that are increasingly becoming popular in the consumer space. Instead, sequential read speeds top out at 560MB/sec, while sequential writes come in slightly lower at 530MB/sec. Random read IOPS... Read more...
Western Digital is expanding SanDisk's storage portfolio with the release of new Skyhawk-branded SSDs. Skyhawk SSDs are destined for the enterprise market, and as such come with an NVMe 1.2 PCIe interface and are available in capacities up to 3.84TB. Skyhawk is available in both Standard and Ultra variants. Skyhawk offers sequential reads and writes of up to 1,500MB/sec and 1,170MB/sec respectively, along with random reads and writes of 250,000 IOPs and 47,000 IOPs respectively. Customers will be able to choose from both 1.92TB and 3.84TB capacities to fit their storage needs. The Skyhawk Ultra improves upon those performance figures with sequential reads/writes of 1,700MB/sec and 1,200MB/sec... Read more...
