SanDisk Extreme PRO 128GB Review

👤by David Mitchelson Comments 📅30-05-14

While Cloud Storage is vastily becoming the popular route to take for backing up data, having a physical backup is for many, the preferred option. Cloud storage should be a supplement rather than a primary solution since having a physical backup of your data offers better privacy and is generally regarded the better portable route for storing bigger files such as movies due to internet bandwidth constraints.

SanDisk’s Extreme Pro is tailored to those users who need a fast and reliable drive for critical data storage and it certainly seems to tick all the right boxes too. Not only does it look great in its two-tone design, but it’s robust and delivers fast transfer rates even during sequential read/write operation. In our testing we compared the Extreme Pro against Samsung’s popular S2 Portable USB 3.0 drive and in almost all the benchmarks, the SanDisk offering doubled the performance of the Samsung drive.

Although the Extreme Pro outperforms the Samsung S2 drive in such a manner, it’s also double the cost at £120 GBP / $145 USD. But this price difference is worthwhile if speed is imperative. Additionally, this SanDisk drive is backed by an attractive lifetime limited warranty.

SanDisk’s Extreme Pro is a stylish USB 3.0 flash drive which is housed inside a durable enclosure. Those who demand large portable storage capacity and fast read/write transfer rates will be satisfied with this superb drive.
