If you want a device that has Wi-Fi capability and has storage capabilities, then you would want the SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick. It is an affordable way to transfer files wirelessly over a network. For its price, it offers a moderate amount of storage. Still, its transfer speeds are nothing to boast about, but it does cover the basics quite well.
Wireless Transfer and Storage Capabilities are at the Core of the SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick
Aside from being able to connect wirelessly, the SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick it also has an internal battery built for its wireless capabilities. Its battery life is good enough to last you throughout the day. However, if you’re looking for a wired USB flash drive that comes at a slightly better price range, then there are other options in the market such as the Kingston DataTraveler microDuo 3.0.
The Connect Wireless Stick USB flash drive comes as an all-black, plastic portable storage device. It has 3.08 x 0.82 x 0.48-inches for its dimensions and it is very lightweight since it only weighs 0.8-inches. Its overall design architecture looks pretty sharp. It has a textured feel with geometric patterns on its front panel which gives the device a modern look.
There is also a single LED at the center of its front panel. This will serve as a notification if the device is turned on or off, if its transferring data wirelessly, or if its charging or low on battery. There is also a small Power button with a slim bar located at the right side of the compact storage device.
This Sandisk USB flash drive is available in a number of storage capacity options, namely 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB. In terms of file transfer speed, this device doesn’t particularly stand out in this area. This is because its specs are limited to speeds for connecting to a USB 2.0 port. This means that if you do connect to a USB 3.0 port, it will have a bottleneck effect and that extra “1.0 speeds” will be wasted. The speeds for transferring wirelessly are seen at an even slower rate as compared to connecting the device directly. A 2GB will file take about two-and-a-half minutes to complete when connected directly to a computer, and it can take more than five minutes if you opt to transfer the same file wirelessly.
Still, the SanDisk Connect Wireless Stick is able to do what it’s supposed to do. Users will be able to transfer files without the need to transfer to another computer. For instance, transferring files from your phone to this flash drive (and vice versa) will be a whole lot easier.
