O’Keefe, vice president, retail marketing, SanDisk. “SanDisk pioneered the USB drive
and now offers one of the broadest lineups in the industry, with a wide range of form

SanDisk Extreme USB Flash Drive
The USB 3.0-enabled SanDisk Extreme® USB flash drive can transfer, store and share
large files up to 10 times faster with speeds of up to 190MB/s. USB 3.0-enabled device
shipments will surpass one billion in 2014, up from 70 million in 2011, according to
NPD In-Stat*. The SanDisk Extreme USB flash drive provides the fast performance
that these next-generation computing devices demand.

The drive dramatically reduces wait times for consumers. It can transfer smaller files
almost instantaneously and larger files such as a 3GB file in 20 seconds or a 40GB file
in four minutes3. The SanDisk Extreme USB flash drive is backed by a lifetime limited
warranty4 and available worldwide now in 16GB to 64GB capacities carrying MSRPs of
