- Toshiba FlashAir 8GB Wifi SD Card for $15
Toshiba FlashAir 8GB Wifi SD Memory Card for $25, and code
applies $10 off in the cart.
It has a built-in WiFi chip, so your phones and tablets can connect to it wirelessly, to download photos/videos stored on the card.
We have one, and have mixed feelings about it.
It worked initially in our Sony digital camera, until the camera stopped recognizing the memory card after about 20 minutes of use.
Cameras, like my Sony, automatically power themselves down after a few minutes of inactivity, and I believe the memory card had issues with the constant on/off power cycling.
Everything was fine again later in the day, but when I feel like snapping a photo, I don't want to sit around and fiddle with the thing.
I prefer to use a regular SD card, that I know will always work especially when taking photos while traveling.
I did find use for this card as a way to copy photos from my computer onto my phones and tablets.
I copied all my photos from my computer onto the FlashAir using a SD Card Reader, connected my iPad to the FlashAir's Wifi, then used the Toshiba's FlashAir App to download all the photos.
It was more convenient (and cheaper) for me than buying Apple's SD Card Lightning Adapter.
My final thoughts.
If you are looking for a memory card to take a lot of photos with (like on a vacation), we do not suggest the Toshiba FlashAir.
If you are looking to take a few photos and love the idea of your devices wirelessly downloading the photos without taking the SD card out of your camera, this is a great little product for you.
If you have an always-on device, like a computer or a camera plugged into a power outlet, the FlashAir may work better for you than it did for me.
USB3.0 drives are compatible with regular USB and USB3.0 ports.
For an internal desktop hard drive deal, Newegg posted a Seagate Hybrid 4TB Hard Drive with 8GB Caching SSD for $160 (usually goes for at least $170).
It has 64MB of cache (most hard drives have 16 to 32 MB), and 8GB of SSD storage which it uses to cache frequently accessed data.
This should be one of the best performing large-capacity consumer-grade hard drives on the market.
