SanDisk Ultra Backup Drive
Are you looking for a storage device that holds a ton of files but don’t want to carry around a portable hard drive? Look no further than the SanDisk Ultra Back Up. Described as the first USB flash drive with a backup button, you can store all of your music, photos, videos, and other important documents without the need of installing any programs.
This little device has everything everyone on the go needs: fast performance, password protection, and the ability to run programs such as FireFox and OpenOffice directly from the device (Laptop Mag). SanDisk really wants it known that its main priority when it comes to this gadget is the consumer’s memories—“Protect what matters most,” SanDisk says.
This gadget also merges function with fashion, SanDisk says, with an industry first backup technology. The backup application is also built into the device, meaning that there’s no need for any cables or complex set-ups.
Using it is also as simple as using a regular USB drive—when plugged in to a computer, laptop, etc., a glowing LED lights up, alerting you that it’s ready for use. The LED flashes rapidly when data is being transferred, and slows down when the drive is idle.
With the SanDisk Ultra Backup Drive, you needn’t worry about keeping your precious files safe. The drive also has a five year limited warranty.
