SanDisk Ultra Fit USB 3.0 is a speedy little flash drive

If you have a USB 3.0 port on one of your devices, you’ve probably been promised faster read and write speeds. You insert your flash drive, copy tons of files, and surprise! Transfer is just as slow as with standard USB 2.0 ports. Wondering why there’s no increase in speed? That’s because you also need a USB 3.0 compatible device to enjoy the promised blazing fast data transfer capabilities.


SanDisk Corporation, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of flash storage devices, recently released the high-speed and ridiculously small SanDisk Ultra Fit USB 3.0 flash drive. Their newest storage solution promises high-speed performance – including transfer of full-length movies in 40 seconds – in a form factor only as big as a dime.


“As a leader in the flash storage space, our goal has always been to deliver the best, most reliable products,” said Candy Gao, country manager of SanDisk Hong Kong and Philippines. “While there are other USB 3.0 products on the market, SanDisk’s Ultra Fit USB 3.0 flash drive offers consumers superior performance and impressive capacity in an extremely compact design.”


The Ultra Fit USB 3.0 is a follow up to the very successful Cruzer Fit USB flash drive. SanDisk’s latest flash drive iteration will offer an updated, contemporary design, and improved performance for media transfer between devices, whether notebooks, tablets, gaming consoles, car audio systems, TVs, DVD players, and more. Offered in 64GB and 32GB versions, the USB 3.0 interface promises write speeds 10 times faster than USB 2.0 devices. Meanwhile, the smaller 16GB Ultra Fit has a 5 times faster write speed than standard USB 2.0 drives. All versions boast up to 130MB/s read speeds, SanDisk SecureAccess software for keeping files private and safe through password protection and 128-bit encryption, and a free one year subscription to RescuePRO for file recovery.

The SanDisk Ultra Fit USB 3.0 flash drive is now available in all SanDisk certified distributors and resellers in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB capacities at PHP 699 PHP 1,299, and PHP 2,639.00 respectively.
