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.
