SanDisk 1G CompactFlash
by Rick Smith (November 28, 2001)
In the quest to pack more digital data into a small container, SanDisk has recently introduced the one 1-gigabyte type 1 CompactFlash (CF) memory card. CompactFlash media is used in digital cameras, MP3 players, handhelds and other digital devices. Now you will be able to store:
more than 1000 digital images
more than 20 hours of digital music
nearly two hours of CD quality audio
several hours of digital video
large databases in the palm of your hand
Creating the one gigabyte CF memory card is a technological breakthrough for SanDisk, but you could expect them to be in front, because they first introduced the CompactFlash memory card back in November 1994.
With a whopping gigabyte of fast storage capacity, you can store even more pictures or video clips with your digital camera, before changing or transferring media. I prefer working with CompactFlash devices because the maximum memory size has been so far ahead of other competing memory card formats and is staying that way. Now, I can easily go an entire day without having to worry about downloading and this makes me happy.
The 1 GB SanDisk CompactFlash card should be available in early 2002 and should sell for under $800.
