SanDisk Ultra Dual Drive Go Pendrive Review: Affordable Drive

 

Should you shell out your money to buy this piece of hardware? Here are our thoughts on the SanDisk Ultra Dual Go Type C Pendrive.

Portable Design

Portable Design

The unit which we receive comes in black color and packs a portable design. Though the build quality of the SanDisk Pendrive is not impressive, it has a plastic form factor similar to most of the Pendrives offered by the company.

It's a 2-in-1 Pendrive for mobile with a reversible USB Type-C and a traditional Type-A connector which will allow users to connect the device with both smartphone and PC.

The Pendrive comes with a very compact design which makes it easier for users to carry, but at the same time, you need to be very careful because its compact design you might end up misplacing it. On the bottom part of the Pendrive, there is a loop design which will allow you to tie a neck strap which will make sure you will not misplace it.

Compatibility

SanDisk Ultra Dual Drive Go Type C Pendrive is compatible with almost all the major operating systems including Windows OS, macOS, Android OS, and Linux. The 2-in-1 Pendrive is compatible with smartphone and PC both and we have not faced any issues while transferring files.

We have also played HD video and movies directly on smartphone and TV with the help of USB Type-C and Type-A connector. We haven't witnessed any lag even while playing HD videos.

SanDisk claims that the Ultra Dual Drive Go Type C Pendrive is capable of delivering read speeds of 150 Mbps using USB 3.1 which is a very impressive data transferring speed. However, we have also tested the Pendrive in a real-life scenario to get you the actual numbers.

We have tested the flash drive on CrystalDiskMark 6.0 in which we have received a maximum read speed of 129.5 Mbps on USB 3.0 port. This suggests that this flash-drive is capable enough of transferring hefty files without any issue.

File Transfer Test

We have also tried transferring 46.1GB data from PC to SanDisk Ultra Dual Drive Go Type C. We have noticed a maximum speed of 33.8 Mbps and a minimum speed of 17.9 Mbps in a real-life scenario. For transferring 46.1GB data it tool around 34 minutes.

Do note that the transfer speed of the flash-drive also depends on the PC configuration.
