Sandisk Updates Ultra II media with 32GB SDHC and 8GB SDHC Plus

I have a few of the Sandisk Ultra II 2GB SD version. I prefer them over the Extreme III Compact flash because the in-camera write speed is a tap faster. Although it's slightly slower in between PC transfer but that’s not what i got it for. Now sounds about the right time for an upgrade. Sandisk has announced two new up-sized versions of the Ultra II SDHC and Ultra II SDHC plus to 32GB and 8GB with 50 percents faster than last version.

So at CES this year SanDisk, BeInSync, Amazon, and BoomerangIt will all be coming together on a fairly impressive flash drive. Sure, you might see the flash drive as what it is physically, four gigabytes of flash storage, but thanks to Amazon you get 6 months free of an equal amount of online storage, and thanks to BeInSynce those four gigabytes on the flash drive and the 4GB online will be the same.

Following the disagreement with ITunes early this year, NBC Universal turns partnership with SanDisk Corp for web-based content services.

Samsung 64GB SSD performance benchmarks

Samsung 64GB SSD performance benchmarks

Earlier this month Samsung sent over their new 64GB solid-state drive for us to play with, and Vincent promptly slapped it into his MacBook Pro to see whether it made much of a difference in access speed.  Well, we've finally dragged it away from him, extracted the SSD and put it through some benchmark testing.

As a test machine we used Alienware's m9750 laptop running Windows Vista 32-bit (as we reviewed here), comparing the Samsung 64GB SSD with Sandisk's 32GB SSD in both single and dual-drive RAID-0 configurations.  After each hardware change we reinstalled the laptop's OS using Alienware's supplied restore disk, then ran HD-Tach and HD-Tune to test burst and transfer rates.

After a little sweet-talking at the SanDisk event, Vincent was allowed to spend a few minutes in the company of their marvellously capacious MicroSDHC. 8GB of storage in something the size of a thumbnail is plenty impressive, although if you insist on carrying around the accompanying card-reader (which I suppose you could pretend was some sort of Star Trek phaser) the whole package gets a little bulky.

SanDisk Event – We are LIVE!

SanDisk Event – We are LIVE!

Well you know that SanDisk event that I mentioned yesterday? Yeah, we wound up there, it’s all kind of hazy how, but somehow Vincent wound up in LA surrounded by extremely attractive members of the opposite sex and ice sculptures.

He has been generous enough to bless us with pics, and soon to come, videos. For now we have these pictures, more will be added as they come.
