As a professional photographer who is frequently on the move, usually with children in tow, there is so much I require, and only so much I can take.  I get so frustrated sometimes, because keeping track of all my memory is usually a problem. When I can’t find what I’m looking for I get so stressed.  My pictures and videos mean a lot to me. They always have either professional, or sentimental value. Up until now, I haven’t had a good way to store all these memories.  Now, I have one reliable external USB drive with 1TB of memory from SanDisk. It’s high-speed, built tough, and designed for portability.


The SanDisk – Extreme 1TB External USB 3.1 Gen 2 Drive is fast.  Transfers are high speed and it reads at 550MB per second. File updates are super quick, too, when you enable a rapid response.  When I work with images, I need things to go quickly, so this is really important to me.

I also use a PC and a Mac, for different reasons.  So, the fact that the drive offers flexible installation instructions and can be compatible to either is great. Similar to storing images on a NAS server, the fact that it has so much storage space relieves my computers of the burden of so much media and keeps them faster longer.


I also love how much this drive can take and how quiet it is.  The solid-state drive has no moving parts and stays totally cool.  The solid-state core is also shock resistant for increased durability and reliability.  The drive also has a rating of IP55 due to its water and dust resistant design. This Gem 2 SanDisk Extreme external drive holds up well against rain, splashes, spills and dust.


Because of the SanDisk Extreme’s portable design and other attributes taking data on the go is so convenient.  I don’t have to rely on an internet connection to access, save and edit high-res photos or videos while I’m traveling.The USB 3.1 Gen2 Type-C interface allows easy and fast device connection.  A Type-C to Type-C cable and a Type-C to Type-A adapter are included. That means I’m not high and dry when it comes to hooking up the drive to my computer or my camera.

I love having this at my disposal, because it’s so reliably fast and I know my files are secure because of SecureAccess™ 128-bit AES encryption software.  Get a great deal on the SanDisk Extreme at Best Buy and  a free gift from Shutterfly.
