Take your files to go with this SanDisk Ultra SDCZ48-256G-A46 256GB flash drive, which features a USB 3.0 Type A interface that is also compatible with USB 2.0 ports for efficiency. Integrated security features guard against unwanted access.
Measured in megabytes (MB), gigabytes (GB) and terabytes (TB), this is the amount available for storing files, music, movies, photos and more. The total includes the capacity of the hard disk drive and solid state drive if both are included on the computer.
Massive storage in a mini size
Posted by: JAG1 from: Queens, NY on
I purchased this USB flash drive because I wanted to have access to my music and video files on my new XBOX ONE S. The USB ports on it support 3.0 so the transfer is quick and files load immediately. For the price, you can transport a lot of files and content. There are computers that don't even have this much storage... There is a handy loop on the end of it so you can attach it to your keys or other items.
You can also set it up so that no one has access to your files or you can designate certain files to be accessible and keep the others inaccessible. It's a nice plus. The small switch/button on the flash drive allows you to slide out the usb access port when you need it and slide it back into the flash drive when you are not using it which keeps it protected.
SanDisk makes good, high quality products. I have many other flash drives and SD cards made by them that have never failed me.
To be honest, the average person would never use the total capacity of this flash drive but digital photographers that work with RAW files, 4K videos and High Dynamic Range content use a lot of space so individuals that work with these types of files would appreciate the volume as well as the speed of this flash drive.

Does what's advertised
Posted by: SoftwareDeveloper from: on
Needed an external drive for laptop that has a 128G internal flash drive. For business use meaning storing documents, pictures and presentations only. Didn't need a bulky terabyte drive. This product is much more portable and faster than and external drive.

Great price, superior product, exactly as ordered.
Posted by: DoubleD from: on
This was a great price for a superior product with a warranty period 5 times longer than the competition. The product was exactly as ordered and arrived within 3-4 days during the holidays. The free shipping was an extra bonus. I would recommend this product to anyone.

Good Price for capacity/speed
Posted by: BomTrix from: on
I purchased this item primary because of the price and capacity. I have a ton of USB 2 sticks but this one seems promising.
I have used it pretty heavily in the last month.
- Bootdisk for reloading my MacOSX.
- Storing backup software to reload while I am offline on new systems
- I have even used it for temp caching on a data mining project due to the device I was currently on it was very limited on ram/hdd space. It held impressively and did not unmount under very heavy load.
I was very tempted to buy a few more but after since I primary either have it in my laptop bag or key-chain it opens very easily (its obviously designed to be on a key-chain and mobile has the loop on it). It Drives me nuts. That is the only reason I took off a star. Yes I know they have a carrying pouch but I am not very interested in buy another product for something I feel should be handled on here. It should not be that difficult to add either a locking mechanism such as a pocket knife has or perhaps stiffen up the sensitivity of it opening up.
Other than that I would strongly recommend the product for the price and quality. If I was not so mobile I would own several more!

Extra Storage for PS4
Posted by: AlannaM from: Rochester Hills, MI on
My son ran out of storage on his PS4. This turned out to be a great buy. Added all of the storage for his data at a really inexpensive price.

Good product. Did the job.
Posted by: Snocrush from: on
The included SanDisk encryption program worked, but I chose to delete it, since it encrypted each individual file -- which is great for security, but I would have preferred to do my encryption at the folder level (If it had that capability, it certainly wasn't obvious to me). Other than that, fine product. I feel much more secure about my data now that I'm not having to rely on a spinning disk in a heavy, easily drop-able drive.

Works great for backing up files on my PS4
Posted by: Zumwania from: on
Easily the most important device I own now for backing up saves on my PS4. So far I have had no issues with it. It was especially good at the sale price when I bought it. Unless you are a very unlucky person I highly recommend getting one if you need that much space.

Slow and heats up
Posted by: RoPa from: on
This drive is slower than SanDisk drives I have purchased in the past. Took over 8 minutes to transfer 2.5GB of data on a USB 3.0 port. Also the drive was very warm when I unplugged it after 10 minutes use.
