SanDisk refreshes its portable storage lineup at CES

SanDisk is presenting a variety of storage products at CES this week. The first is a new SSD in the company's portable series aimed at photographers and videographers, called the Extreme 510 Portable SSD. 

SanDisk Extreme 510 Portable SSD

SanDisk dubs this as an "all-terrain" storage product. While it doesn't appear to have four-wheel drive, it is substantially more durable than the typical SSD with its added rubber bumpers. Also, the IP-55 rating for water and dust resistance should protect it against spills. It comes with a capacity of 480GB and is available for $250.

SanDisk Ultra Dual USB Drive 3.0

SanDisk's Ultra Dual USB Drive 3.0 offers a standard USB connection for computers and a micro-USB connection for OTG-enabled Android smartphones. In addition to being a multi-device flash drive, it purportedly functions as a bridge, allowing one to transfer files from PC to phone and back. Perhaps that's inspired by the humble USB cable. The Ultra Dual USB Drive will be available in capacities ranging from 16GB to 128GB, and SanDisk advertises sequential read speeds up to 150MB/s.

SanDisk Wireless Connect Stick

Finally, the Wireless Connect Stick is a flash drive with 802.11n Wi-Fi on board. SanDisk intends it to be a collaboration tool in the office and a sharing tool for home, allowing multiple computers and mobile devices to be connected wirelessly. SanDisk claims it can stream video to three devices simultaneously. The price ranges from $25 for the 16GB capacity to $200 for the 200GB capacity.
