Ten-fold speed improvement with USB 3.0
 
USB 3.0-enabledSanDisk Extreme flash drive

SanDisk has started shipping Flash (thumb) drives tailored to work at the faster transfer speeds of the new USB 3.0 standard, which around 190 MBPS can be up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0. The catch ofcourse is that in addition to using a 3.0 device, you need a 3.0 USB port on your parent platform -- laptop, desktop, tablet or whatever. Chances are, unless you bought that platform in the last 6-8 months, it will  have only USB 2.0 ports -- and the effective speed advantage of using the SanDisk Extreme USB 3.0 flash drive   will be nullified as transfer speeds drill down to the lower speed.

However when we tried the Extreme 3.0 USB, with a PC equipped with USB 3.0 ports, we could feel a palpable improvement in the time it took files of 2-3 GB size -- around half a minute.The drive comes with a folder containing SanDisk's Secure Access tool which allows the owner to configure a password-protected private folder on the drive, secured with 128-bit AES encryption.

Also available on the drive is a quartet of useful applications: a 60 day trial version of McAfee Internet Security Software, a sidebar on Internet Explorer to make trading on eBay easy; GOToMyPC, an app that lets users sync to their PC or Mac desktop from any machine via Internet and RoboForm's multiple password manager. The minor problem is, you have only one install option -- which means it's all or nothing.

Once your Extreme USB is registered, Sanisk also provides 2GB of free online backup on the cloud.

The product comes with a lifetime warranty and is available in in India 16GB, 32GB and 64GB  in the price range of Rs 1,651 to 5,189. That makes these drives rather costlier than USB 2.o drives of similar capacity -- but if you have the need for speed, the asking price may seem reasonable!

USB 3.0-enabledSanDisk Extreme flash drive
by Quockha on January  27,  2013
  "Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program () Here are 2TB drvies out here for less money and if all you need is a huge space, you might consider one of those. The value added in this package is the backup software that is bundled with the drive (really, delivered right on the drive). WD Smartware is a backup/restore suite that, once installed, boots with your apparatus. If the MyBook is attached via your USB port, it will constantly monitor activity and make backups accordingly in the background in near real time without any proceedings on your part. It also maintains multiple generations of files (you choose how many), so you can go back to, say, three versions ago if you need to recover a spreadsheet or other data file. You can also use it on multiple computers. Backups are stored under folders with the same name as the PC they're made on. I tested on a Win XP Pro laptop and a Win7 laptop and detected no system slowdowns at all. Every now and then the activity light on the drive would flicker; otherwise the backup operations were not noticeable. The drive itself is completely silent. INSTALLATION Strongly consider copying the software built-in on the drive to a CD before you do anything. I can envision situations where you might want to delete everything off the MyBook and if you do that, you'll no longer have the software to install on another apparatus (the manual has instructions about where to look for it online). Plug in the power supply, then connect the MyBook to a USB port on your notebook, then turn on your notebook if it's not on already. The MyBook will not power up in anticipation of it is connected to a USB port on a running notebook, which is really handy if you turn that notebook off, the MyBook turns off with it, then comes back up when you power the notebook back up. My Win7 apparatus saw the drive quickly but complained that the drivers could not be installed. The drive worked fine, though I was able to make folders, copy stuff to it, and delete stuff from it using Windows Surveyor. My XP apparatus saw the MyBook and started the Found New Hardware wiz. It questioned if it could connect to Windows Update to look for drivers. The drive wasn't showing in Windows Surveyor, so I said yes. After a long search for WD SES Device USB Device, it found and installed what it needed to and the balloon said my new hardware was installed and ready to use. I then installed the software (all of it) on both machines without incident, by running the WD SmartWare executable built-in on the drive (blue icon). On installation, I was prompted to perform my initially backup, so I did. When I was through with both machines I had two presumably complete backups on the MyBook, one for each apparatus. For each PC you're supporting with the MyBook, this initially backup is your baseline and changes to it will be tracked from that point on. NOTE: these are not drive images. As nearly as I can tell, WD SmartWare doesn't support making drive images or recovery boot discs, so you'll need to rely on other tools to make things like that if desired. I didn't see this as a flaw since this isn't sold as a system recovery utility. It will save your rear end if you blow a file or folder, but if your whole apparatus dies you have lots of other problems to solve before you start worrying about individual files. Of course it's a fantastic location to store drive images, but be aware that the software isn't designed to make them. I am regularly prompted that a software upgrade is available for the MyBook. Like another reviewer, I found that the installation program complains about additional USB devices life connected no matter whether any are connected or not. The drive works well so I just dismiss prompts to upgrade. Maybe I'll struggle with that later, or maybe not. OPERATION It just works. I disconnected the MyBook and then edited files, made new files, and deleted existing files on both my XP and Win7 machines. Then I connected the MyBook to each apparatus in turn. On both machines, a couple of minutes after connecting the MyBook, the new files appeared in the backup and edited versions (2nd generations) appeared in the backup without my doing anything. Deleted files (I had really deleted them, not sent them to the Recycle Bin) were still here in the backup. Multiple generations and retention of deleted files is a excellent thing, but it is also going to cause bloat after time on machines that are heavily used. I can see needing to do housekeeping every so often, getting all my machines to a stable point, cleaning off the MyBook entirely, and then starting over with a fresh backup/baseline of each notebook. OTHER CONSIDERATIONS This would ideally be connected to a desktop notebook and just sit here quietly doing its job. I have three laptops and no "

  "Любой человек имеет собственное представление об отличном отпуске. Для некоторых лучше провести отпуск в теплой стране у моря. А для других, хороший отпуск – это поездки по разнообразным историческим достопримечательностям. Туристический оператор Expedi-Tour может как никто другой оказать необходимую помощь и предложить наиболее оптимальный тур. Лишь данный туристический оператор может учесть все детали, которые на первый взгляд могут показаться малозначимыми. Мы сможем получить визу для посещения любого государства или нескольких держав. Конечно, нет ничего особо сложного в том, чтобы подобрать место, куда можно отправиться в отпуск, его даже можно организовать самостоятельно. Но это может обернуться множеством проблем в будущем. Поскольку операторы Expedi-Tour знают больше о странах и туристических маршрутах, которые через них проходят. Самостоятельно же предпринимать любые действия в этом направлении не не желательно, это очень рискованно. Сделав заказ тура у нас, турист получит гарантию того, что он отправиться в путешествие, которое ему хочется, а не туда, куда получится. Он сможет быть уверен в том, что его разместят в указанный отель, предоставят все необходимые экскурсии, отличное питание."
