    SanDisk SDCZ48-256G-A46 reviews

    256GB Ultra USB 3.0 Flash Drive is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 64.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great backup for your images when traveling A 256GB will hold a lot of images. Put it in your pocket, vest, camera bag, ... and you have an extra backup. Much smaller than portable HDD (though a portable HDD can store 1-4 TB), though I seldom shoot even a TB with my wife on a single trip. This drive is not fast like a CFAST, more like a slow CF or SD card. But it is a solid state device which means after initially testing, if it is stable, it should be robust. I always test my cards and device throughly when I get them. Once they pass I am sure that they will be stable. Only need to test them every year or two.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great capacity at a great price This unit was on sale and I couldn't resist a reliable brand name, large capacity, USB 3.0 capable flash drive at the price. The flash drive is small outside, but huge inside (TARDIS-like?). It's backward compatible with USB 2, which is great as that's all my desktop PC has. It comes FAT32 formatted, which is useful for mounting on a wider variety of computers than NTFS would be. I bought it to put videos on so that my wife could view them on her notebook PC rather than crowd around my desktop screen to see them. Although I've only had it a short time, I've already moved 15 GB of videos onto it and my wife is delighted. The smooth, locking-slide mechanism for the USB plug is a big plus. I believe that this product deserves a full 5 stars.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from keep a lot of data safe This is my second 256 GB Ultra USB drive. I used the first to back up a GoPro and Lumix GH4, both filming 4K as I traveled through France, Germany, Nepal, and Tibet. It didn't fail me at all. It seems fast and reliable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Backward compatible with USB 2.0 I had a 1T Western Digital drive that went bad after three years, this is soon for me, I really take care of my hard drives I have some that are ten years old. Now with this 256 GB Flash Drive I don't feel as though I have to worry about a disk drive going bad. I never needed 1T of space anyway. 256GB is fine and the price is reasonable. Also, all I have to do is plug it into the computer, don't have to have an electric connection like I did on my Western Digital. For just regular backup, this drive is great.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poorly Designed Product It does have the capacity it advertises, but has NO cover for the end cap so dust immediately accumulates in the port, and it won't be long before it becomes a problem. And, it's picture shows a capability to be placed on a key chain, but when you place it on the key chain, the rear of the movable port section presses against the key chain and pushes the port out endangering the port. The movable center port section pushes in and out but does not click into place in either position so as at rests on the key chain and moves around in your pocket it always sticks out allowing debris to enter the port and possibly allowing the port to get crushed. It is essentially unusable as a portable stick drive on a key ring.
    Date published: 2016-08-02
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's fast, but not as fast as SanDisk claims. I am using this flash drive to store my iTunes media. My media library is 202 GB; mostly music; 7000+ songs at 320 kbps. Because I have about a dozen HD movies (each > 4 GB), I could not use the default FAT32 formatting (4 GB is the maximum file size). Although I am using OS X El Capitan, I wanted to format using the option most compatible with other platforms, but still able to handle file sizes larger than 4 GB. So I tried exFAT. (First, I backed up the software and files pre-loaded on the flash drive.) It handled the file sizes, but was writing 5+ GB files at 20 minutes per file. Reading was slow enough to cause occasional breaks in HD playback. I reformatted using OS X Extended (Journaled). The same files that took 20 minutes, now take 2 minutes. That speed improvement, however, is 4.25 MB/s to 42.5 MB/s. SanDisk claims speeds of (up to) 100 MB/s. Perhaps that is with a few small files. But, when it really counts, expect less than half that speed; or 1/20th if one do not format using the optimal option for one's operating system. It is doing a great job. More flexibility would have been nice; sans ridiculous impact on performance.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great way to keep those files close It seems that every time I purchase a large size Flash Drive I end up filling it up. Hopefully I won't fill this one any time soon. I like the way the USB part slides out and locks in place. This feature works better (is stronger) than my previous flash drives. It also has a place for the lanyard. I would not purchase a flash drive without this because you can attach something to this to help keep it from getting lost or keep it around your neck. No negatives, works great

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works like a charm I upload all my photos each day while on vacation. That way I don't worry about an SD card going bad or losing a camera with all of the vacation photos.
