When SanDisk unveiled the “world’s fastest” 1TB microSD card earlier this year, many (including myself) were impressed. With mainstream 2.5-inch solid state drives typically capping out at 4TB, it’s unbelievable that 1024GB of storage can be crammed onto something that’s roughly the size of a fingernail. Not only is it possible, but it’s now beginning to make an official appearance at some retailers, inviting you to stow every Switch game on a teeny-tiny microSD card.
After first being announced back at MWC in late February, the SanDisk 1TB microSD card is now available for purchase. It arrived on the scene this winter to much fanfare as the world’s first terabyte portable storage in this small of a form factor, alongside a similar release from Micron. As we noted in our announcement coverage, that’s a lot of Nintendo Switch games. But now that the card is officially available, how will it play into a crowded field of contenders looking to store your content? Head below for more on today’s release.
With camera laden drones filling the sky and action cameras in just about everyone’s hands at this point, the need for portable and reliable storage is at an all-time high. While cloud-like services are, in many ways, just as viable an option as physical media, there’s nothing like a handy SD card in a pinch when your drives are getting full.
As part of its Mobile World Congress showcase announcements, Western Digital and SanDisk have a number of new SSDs on the slate as well what is being called the “world’s fastest UHS-I flash memory card.”
When I reviewed SanDisk’s new Lightning to USB flash drive for iPhone back in April, I noted it was one of the best yet. Today the company is launching a new product that essentially offers the same functionality— extra storage for files that you can access from a companion iOS app— but in the form factor of a sleek iPhone 6/6s case.
Use SanDisk’s largest capacity microSD card to add 200GB of additional storage to your Android device, camera or tablet. That’s enough space to store up to 20 hours of Full HD video content. It’s an Amazon favorite with 5,300 reviewers delivering a collective 4.6/5 star rating.

Increasing app and photo file sizes have made managing mobile device storage tougher than ever. At one time or another, we’ve all run out of space on our iPhones and as a result were unable to snap a memorable picture or download an important document. An easy way to overcome this issue (outside of buying a new device) is to backup data more frequently and offload large media files with a USB flash drive.

Apple doesn’t make it easy to expand the storage of its mobile devices. This becomes a big issue when you start shooting HD videos and downloading Retina apps. Most people (especially 16GB device owners) wind up filling their devices to the point that they don’t have enough space to install updates. Over the past couple of years SanDisk’s Connect wireless flash drives have been one of the best ways to workaround this problem: they allow you to have access to huge media files whenever you want and to take as many pictures as you want without eating up precious on-board storage.
This morning SanDisk released its new Connect Wireless Stick. This drive has a refreshed design, lower price point and is now available with up to 128GB. I’ve been using it for the past few days. Read on to find out my first impressions of it:

MicroSD cards make for great additions to phones and digital cameras for storing photos, videos or apps and can be even be added to MacBooks with one of these adapters. SanDisk’s 128GB version priced at $78.99 is the smarter purchase for most people.

At Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, SanDisk has just announced a new accessory that will make many Android users very happy. The company has unveiled the world’s first ever 128GB microSD card.

In addition to this new 128GB card, SanDisk will also be updating its “Memory Zone” app for Android, which allows users to easily and access files stored on microSD cards.
