SanDisk continues to push the boundaries of what is possible with portable storage, unveiling their new prototype 1TB USB-C stick.

SanDisk also announced the world's smallest 256GB USB flash drive, the Fit USB 3.1 Flash Drive, for people who want to add more photos, videos, games and audio files to their notebooks, tablets, TVs, gaming consoles and auto audio systems. The price of Extreme Portable SSD starts from $99. SanDisk obviously compares this against USB 2.0 flash drives, as the TLC NAND and miniature controller can't sustain higher write speeds (applicable to all thumb drives in this category). The SanDisk Extream Portable SSD is priced at $100 for the 250GB model and $700 for the 2TB model. The bundled Type-C cable also comes with a Type-A adapter, similar to what we saw in the WD My Passport SSD.

Today at CES 2018 SanDisk unveils its storage devices.

Continuing its inheritance of technology achievements, Western Digital provides a preview of the upcoming market of flash storage, exhibiting 1TB* USB device.

Armed Robbers Steal Jewelry Worth $5m From Ritz Paris Hotel
Three suspects inside threw bags of goods out a window to at least two accomplices outside, according to a police official. The hotel was bought in 1979 by Egyptian billionaire Mohamed Al-Fayed, whose son Dodi was also killed in the fatal crash.

The Type-C USB standard is still in its transition period so not everyone is going to be happy with the switch from regular sized USB ports to a small one. Since there is wireless access to consider, the SSD needs a battery too, but it goes further than this by also offering up the internal battery as a power bank for mobile devices, so you can access files while also charging your phone - useful again if you are editing in the field.

In addition to the 2TB version for $799, the My Passport Wireless SSD is also available with 250GB for $249, 500GB for $299, or 1TB for $449.

Apart from the sheer amount of storage in so small a form, the other unique aspect of the SanDisk prototype is that it comes with a USB-C interface. Chromecast support has also been added to the My Cloud app.
