As a former wedding photographer, and a blogger, I know my way around a DSLR camera.  While I don’t work in the business anymore, taking photos is something that will always be a lifelong passion for me.  As someone who takes THOUSANDS of pictures a year, many of which are on the go, portable, secure, and long term storage solutions are HUGE for me.  Which is why I was super excited to review the SanDisk – Extreme 1TB External USB 3.1 Gen 2 Drive.  The first thing I will say is that I wish that this baby had been around when I was a wedding photographer!


This is an awesome little portable hard drive – it’s simple and easy to use, and has a massive storage capacity of 1TB – this will hold a LOT of photos, even in RAW format like I shoot.  But there are a lot of external hard drives out there with that storage capacity – so hat makes the SanDisk – Extreme 1TB External USB 3.1 Gen 2 Drive special? TONS.  
The first thing that I love is the size.  This basically DEFINES portability.  Here is a shot of it next to my library card, which is the same size as a credit card.’
This thing is TINY and it is very sturdily built – I think I’m going have a hard time beating this guy up! It has an IP55 rating and stands up to rain, splashes, spills and dust so I can work remotely and take it with us on family vacations no matter where our travels take us.
The next thing I look for is speed and ease of use.  When I’m working remotely with an external hard drive, I don’t want to go through the hassle of downloading and reuploading photo edits – I edit right on the hard drive.  What that means if that a hard drive doesn’t perform well, editing is slowed to a crawl, and ain’t nobody got time for that!  The SanDisk – Extreme 1TB External USB 3.1 Gen 2 Drive performs beautifully- it has a 550MB per second read speed, so it moves fast when updating files, and it connect easily and fast to both MAC and PC computers.  Perfect for editing photos and high resolution videos on the go!
 The SanDisk – Extreme 1TB External USB 3.1 Gen 2 is pricier than other external hard drives I’ve seen ($399 retail value) but I am blown away by the quality and performance.  This is a MUST have for professional photographers, bloggers, families who take a ton of vacation pics, or anyone looking for a compact storage solution for digital files.  It is totally worth it, and I will be transferring a lot of my old bulky external hard drives to the SanDisk – Extreme 1TB External USB 3.1 Gen 2!  
You can pick up yours at Best Buy – this has our enthusiastic two thumbs up and we think you won’t be disappointed!
