Hey we have a unit for review!
Meet SanDisk Dual USB OTG Drive 3.0!
I must tell you that this USB drive is more than just that. It has a dual mode function where-in you easily switch into micro USB mode to regular USB mode in a swipe. That's very useful when you want to transfer files from your smartphone to your laptop or tablet to your laptop or vice versa to any of those devices with ease.

Packaging / Aesthetics

The packaging
It comes in a very simple packaging that contains a lot of information about the device. Build-wise there's nothing too much to boast about this device, but it appears to be built just fine in my opinion. Plus we all know how durable SanDisk products are most of the time. So with proper care and use, this will surely last.

Copying files in an OTG compatible smartphone
The unit I have here has 32 GB of storage, that's quite on the average size nowadays. I can store up to 30 movies with 1 GB size, tons of music files, several vinyl ripped albums, a lot of documents and etc. What I like here is the speed of transfer! I was able to transfer an entire FLAC Album at 750 MB in under 30 seconds and copy 15 photos in HDR quality averaging 3 MB per file in a snap literally.

Look at that file transfer speed!
SanDisk also boast that this can reach speed up to 130 MB/s due to that USB 3.0 capability. While in the real world situation, I was only able to witness an average of 40 - 70 MB per file transfer via PC that's still extremely fast compared to the 10 - 20 MB per second file transfer I used to see with the older USB 2.0 flash drives.
