64GB PNY Duo-Link USB 3.0 and Lightning Flash Drive for $40 w/free S&H

Everyone making Lightning/iOS MFI-blessed accessories has to pay the “Apple tax” for doing so, which is of course passed along to the consumers, so it is nice to find Lightning-compatible items on sale. To cut a long story short…

… the 64GB PNY Duo-Link USB 3.0 Flash Drive for Apple iPhone & iPad, model P-FDI64GOTGAMG3-GE, is on sale for $40 with free shipping at Amazon by Amazon itself. Limit one per customer. This is not a lightning deal (no pun intended).

One side is a Lightning connector, the other side is a full size USB connector (Type A, aka Taipei).

64GB PNY Elite Performance C10 UHS-I U3 SDXC for $27

The 64GB PNY Elite Performance C10 UHS-I U3 SDXC, model P-SDX64U395-GE (with the (up to) “95MB/sec” written on the card), is on sale for $27 each at Quill.com. Free shipping with an order of $45 or more (eg two of these cards).

(ENDED) 256GB PNY Elite Performance SDXC for $80 (limit 1)

This offer expired… It turns out the PNY card that was teased last night in the Amazon Gold Box is actually a day-long deal, running until Friday 3am ET (or earlier if sold out), for $80 with free shipping, with a limit of one per customer, this post is written in reverse, the 256GB PNY Elite SDXC Class 10 UHS-I, U1 Up to 90MB/sec Flash Card (model P-SDX256U1H-GE; price before sale $124.50).

64GB PNY Dual Connector USB Flash Drive for $15; 128GB for $30

If you like to transfer/backup files between phones/tablets and computers and other full-size USB devices, the 64GB PNY DUO-LINK USB 3.0 OTG Flash Drive is on sale for $15 with a limit of up to ten per customer at Amazon by Amazon itself. On the same listing you will also find the 128GB version for $30, with the same limit of up to ten per customer.

This has two connectors, a full-size USB 3.0, along with a micro-USB on the other end. It supports USB OTG, so as long as your phone/tablet supports this in both hardware and software/firmware, you should be able to connect to it from either device. As far as I know, you can’t use as a “land bridge”, eg use both connections at the same time (although I haven’t tried it with this particular model).

The usual free shipping terms apply, Prime or $25+/$49+.

Meanwhile according to the lightning deals schedule, the Lightning connector version of this is scheduled to go live on Tuesday at 3am ET. It is not currently on sale.

Speaking of USB flash drives, the USB 2.0 16GB Sandisk Cruzer Blade CZ50 goes for $5.50 but it is an Add-On item, so you need a $25+ order in order to buy it. Storage has dropped enough in price now that the material and product overhead becomes a bigger cost factor. In other words, you can get better bang for the buck with higher storage options.

4TB Seagate Backup Plus External HDD and 200GB Cloud Storage for $110

On the storage front, the 4TB Seagate Backup Plus External USB 3.0 hard disk drive is on sale for $110 with free shipping, in new condition, at Amazon by Amazon itself. Four different colors are available at this price, with a limit five per color per customer. If you like to color code your storage (eg tiers of backups, or importance of data, or color-code quarters or years), the four different colors give you that option. You also get 200GB of cloud storage.

PS: if you buy multiple of the above, I don’t know if there’s a limit of how many 200GB “clouds” you can add to your cloud storage account. Often times, in situations like this, they have limits of one promotional bonus per account, but I have no way of testing this.

Speaking of storage, if you don’t need quick access, the 64GB PNY Attache USB 2.0 Flash Drive (model P-FD64GATT03-GE) goes for $10 (limit ten per customer), while the 128GB version of that goes for $18 (also limit ten per customer).

PS: with “USB-C” becoming more prevalent, you may see more listings mentioning products as “USB Type A” which is the standard USB size found in desktops/laptops. Everything you want to know on the USB format at Wikipedia. As with everything done by committee, there are goofy things, like USB 3.0 is also known as USB 3.1 First Generation 🙂

USB Flash Drive Roundup: 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive for $20, Tiny Ones for more

Tiny USB flash drives are all the more useful these days with USB OTG and smaller slimmer laptops, which brings us to Lexar’s answer to this genre, their 128GB Lexar JumpDrive S45 USB 3.0 Flash Drive, model LJDS45-128ABNL, going for $27 at Amazon by Amazon itself.

Transcend is in the game too, their 64GB Transcend Jetflash 710 USB 3.0, model TS64GJF710S, going for $24 at Amazon by Amazon itself in silver and slightly more in gold. The 32GB goes for $12.50, and the 16GB goes for $8. The gold color schemes cost slightly more.

If you don’t need the smaller form factor and instead prefer more conventional flash drives, the 128GB PNY Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive (P-FD128TBOP-GE) goes for $20 at the Staples website with a limit of ten per customer. Free store pickup or free shipping if you are a Staples Rewards member (free to join).

On the other hand, if you prefer a Flash Drive that solves the Indecision 2016 problem, the 128GB SanDisk Ultra Dual USB Drive 3.0 (model SDDD2-128G-G46) goes for $30. One side is USB 3.0 full size, the other side is micro-USB, so you can access the storage from either side (but not both at the same time, it’s not a “data bridge”).

128GB PNY Elite X USB 3.0 Flash Drive for $25 (limit 5)

If you like USB 3.0 flash drives of the retractable kind, at the moment the 128GB PNY Elite X USB 3.0 Flash Drive, model P-FD128EX-GE, is on sale for $25 with a limit of five per customer at Amazon by Amazon itself. The usual free shipping terms apply.

More PoNY action, this time it is an SDXC card. The 64GB PNY Elite Performance SDXC UHS-I U1 with up to 90MB/s (I mentioned this because it’s part of the model name and card face, so you can tell it apart from other models; I am not doing Memory Card Performance Measurements and Tests), model P-SDX64U1H-GE, is on sale for $23 with a limit of ten units per customer at Amazon by Amazon itself. The usual free shipping terms apply (Prime or $49+ total/$25+ books).

256GB PNY Turbo Elite USB 3.0 Flash Drive for $55

Backups on the whole lifecycle of photography are more important than they are given credit for, because it’s not one of the sexier parts of the photography process. But it’s good to have backups and multiple options. Which brings us to USB Flash drives. The 256GB PNY Turbo Elite USB 3.0 Flash Drive, model P-FD256TBO-GE, is on sale for $55 with free shipping, with a limit of ten per customer at Amazon by Amazon itself. It currently “defeats” the other storage sizes in its own line (32GB, 64GB, 128GB).

Free shipping with orders of $49+ unless a particular card is participating in a free shipping promotion (eg the 1286GB Elite SDXC).

32GB Transcend Class 10 SDHC 200x for $8 (limit 30)

Once upon a time a 32MB Smartmedia card was a top of the line storage option. Now you can get 1000 times as much storage on a single card and pay about the price of a visit to the all you can eat salad buffet. Which brings us to the 32GB Transcend Class 10 SDHC UHS-I Flash Memory Card, model TS32GSDHC10E, 200x, up to 30MB/sec, on sale for $8 per card, with a limit of 30 per customer at Amazon by Amazon itself. It comes in frustration-free packaging so you don’t have to fight/deal-with the usual retail packaging annoyances.

Keep in mind this is slower compared to newer cards, so keep that in mind depending on how you plan to use it.

Speaking of storage, the 32GB PNY USB 3.0 Flash Drive, model P-FD32GTBOP-GE, is on sale for $9 with a limit of 30 per customer.

The “New Usual” free shipping terms apply to this, like most Amazon purchases, free 2-day for Prime members, or with a $49+ order for non-members (or if the order includes $25+ in physical books). These for items shipped by Amazon or fulfilled by Amazon.

PNY SD card sale (16GB to 256GB options)

If you are a fan of the PNY SD* memory cards, B&H Photo has a PNY SD* memory card sale good until 5/14/16 with nine cards participating from the yellow (Elite Performance) and black (PRO Elite) lines and red (High Performance). Capacities range from 16GB to 256GB. In the usual price/GB march forward, now it is the 256GB Elite Performance card for $80 that “defeats” the lower capacity cards in GB/$. Likewise among the PRO Elite, the 64GB card “defeats” the 32GB as it goes for $30 vs $20. Free shipping if your order total is $49 or higher.

64GB Sony SDXC for $15 or 32GB for $8 or 128GB for $35 [the up to 70MB/s models]

And to think that once upon a time we thought a 32MB Smartmedia card could hold so many pictures 🙂

Speaking of storage, here’s a few other ones buzzing around:
+ 128GB PNY microSDXC for $30 (“defeats” other options in its own lineup)
+ 128GB PNY USB 3.0 Flash Drive for $25

The usual free shipping terms apply. Free 2-day for Prime members (remember you can get some digital credits or Prime pantry credits if you select slower shipping). Non-Prime members get free shipping with an order total of $49 or more in eligible items, or if your order contains at least $25 in books (I don’t remember if used books fulfilled by Amazon count towards the limit).

200GB PNY USB 3.0 Flash Drive for $40 (limit 30)

Ooops, I missed this one in the PNY post, there is yet another option, breaking with the powers-of-2 tradition, you can get the 200GB PNY Turbo USB 3.0 Flash Drive (P-FD200TBOP-AZ) for $40 each at Amazon by Amazon itself with a limit of 30 per customer. This has an April 9 in-stock estimate, so keep that in mind if you need these to arrive yesterday. This is close in price compared to getting a 128GB and 64GB ($25 + $13 for $192GB). The usual Amazon free shipping terms apply (Prime 2-day or $49+ for non-Prime, or $25+ in books for non-Prime).

128GB PNY Turbo USB 3.0 Flash drive for $25 [256GB for $50, 64GB for $13]

64GB Samsung EVO element-proof microSDXC w/adapter for $18 (limit 3)

If you have some of the newer smaller cameras that take microSD cards or use other non-camera cameras (smartphones, action cams, etc), and like the idea of element-proofness in memory cards (Water proof, Temperature Proof, X-Ray proof, Magnetic proof), the 64GB Samsung EVO Class 10 Micro SDXC Card with full size SD Adapter (up to 48/MB/s, model MB-MP64DA/AM) is on sale again for $18~ with a limit of three per customer at Amazon by Amazon itself. A marketplace seller (fulfilled by Amazon) has it for $0.55 less for the more adventurous shoppers. This currently “defeats” all the other options in its own line-up (16GB to 128GB). Note that the prices of this change very often, probably a combination of market-driven price-changes, price-matches, and things like that.

Free shipping if you are a Prime member, or with a order of $49+. Or if your order contains $25+ in books. More details on Amazon’s new free super saver shipping terms.

UPDATE: while we are talking microSDXC cards, the 128GB PNY microSDXC Class 10 UHS-1, model P-SDUX128U160G-GE, is on sale for $35 at B&H Photo (no limits) and Amazon itself (limit 3). Neither has unconditional free shipping. B&H has free shipping with a $49+ order, Amazon with a $49+ order (or if you have $25+ in Books OR if you are a Prime member). Maybe I need to create a free shipping flowchart graphic 🙂 [actually this sounds like a good idea!]

128GB PNY Elite Perf. SDXC for $40 [updated]

The 128GB version has dropped to $40 (was $38), sold and shipped by Amazon itself with a limit of four per customer. It is in the all-encompassing “Temporarily out of stock” status, so keep that in mind if you need it by a specific date… As you can see, both at the SD and microSD levels, we are seeing a wave of price slides of higher capacity cards (as it is often the case – other things equal)…

UPDATE: the 256GB sale for $75 is over as of 12/6/15 re-check… Last week, the 256GB PNY Elite Performance SDXC was “defeating” the other storage options in its own line-up (32GB to 512GB; UHS-I, U3 up to 95 MB/Sec), going for $75 each. Now there is pushback,

This went up too: Meanwhile the 64GB version remains at $20, with a limit of four per customer…
