For many of us, our whole concept of backing up important stuff has shifted to the cloud. No doubt you’ve got a OneDrive, DropBox, iCloud, or some other storage setup and backing up (and syncing across devices) some critical docs and photos. That’s good, but having some removable physical storage is a great option as well (especially if you need to move stuff to a machine you don’t want your cloud credentials on). The new all-metal PNY Duo Link Flash Drive should make that task easy-peasy.
How’s that? Well, because of the “Duo” part of the PNY Duo Link Flash Drive. Here, it means that it’s got both a USB-A and a USB-C connector on it. Meaning you’ll be able to plug it into just about any computer you’d find, as well as (potentially) your phone or tablet as well. That sort of versatility, wrapped up in a durable metal casing means that this should be more than happy to be dropped in your work bag or a jeans pocket before heading out for the day.
Even better is the pricing that comes in on the PNY Duo Link Flash Drive. I mean, these are just crazy when I think about what I paid for that first 128MB drive I picked up way back when. Here, 64GB starts us off at $12.99, 128GB takes it to $19.99, and topping things out at 256GB maxes it out at $29.99. Unless you’ve a penchant for losing small drives, that $30 pricepoint seems like the solid route to go (we’ve got one coming in for a hands-on review, so keep an eye out for that). You can get it over at Amazon, Best Buy, or of course direct at pny.com
