SanDisk Dual USB Drive Type-C

The SanDisk Dual USB Drive Type-C [1] was released in Singapore back in April 2015 and it retails for S$99. It comes in only one size which is 32GB and features a two-year warranty.

Just in case you are not aware, this is a USB 3.0 enabled drive and is backward compatible with USB 2.0.

As of right now, I don’t have any devices that has a USB Type-C port and hence I think the SanDisk Dual USB Drive Type-C is ahead of its time. The only mainstream device in the market that has a USB Type-C port is the new MacBook [2].

Other devices that I know that are using the USB Type-C includes Nokia N1 Android tablet [3], Le 1, Le 1 Pro & Le Max [4], the new Google Chromebook Pixel [5] and the upcoming OnePlus Two [6].

This might change next year according to a recent report by Strategy Analytics [7]. The report estimates that by 2016, 12% of handsets alone will feature Type C connectors.

For disk speed test wise, I managed to get a write speed of 42MB/s and a read speed of 64MB/s for the drive using my 27″ iMac (Late 2012).
