Sandisk iXpand Flash Drive Review

As a Professional Photographer I primarily use my iPad for showcasing my photos to prospective clients and for live tethering of photos during shoots. But 16GB is definitely not enough for someone who does photography professional. Initially I used to delete old photos to make space for the newer ones. But now with the Sandisk iXpand Flash Drive, I wouldn’t be needing to do that ever again. Thankfully!


I won the Sandisk iXpand Flash Drive in a contest on their Facebook page and got it delivered to me through Amazon.



Some of the key points mentioned below is taken from their website.

The iXpand actually does two things really well. You can set it to automatically back up all your pictures as soon as you plug it in, and that works great. You can also play back videos in formats that your iOS device wouldn’t normally support, so that could be a worthy use case.


Now all I need to do it carry my Sandisk iXpand Flash Drive along with some more of photographs instead of going through the hassle of deleting the older ones. It’s a must buy for anyone using iPad products with limited internal memory like my iPad Mini 16GB.
