[message type=”info”]The lucky winners have now been drawn, and the winning names are:

  1. John Griffiths
  2. Debbie Yoder
  3. Charlie Copeland

Winners have been notified by email.

Congratulations to the winners and many thanks to all who entered, especially those who ‘Shared’ and/or ‘Tweeted’.



To help celebrate Easter, and maybe add a little something into the mix other than bunny rabbits and chocolates, DCT is giving away 3 x Sandisk Extreme 32GB CZ80 USB 3.0 flash drives to three lucky DCT subscribers. For your chance to win one of these terrific flash drives absolutely free, all you need do is enter the giveaway below.

*NOTE: There will be three winners drawn – one flash drive per winner.

I work a lot with videos and with clients’ machines so I have quite a few different flash drives on hand – all sorts of capacities and brands, both USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 – and these Sandisk Extremes are by far and away the quickest of the lot.

NOTE: The Sandisk Extreme USB 3.0 flash drive is backwards compatible with USB 2.0. I’ve used this flash drive with a USB 2.0 system and the speed is still remarkable.

CZ80 Sandisk Extreme

The Sandisk Extreme is a little more expensive than your run-of-the-mill flash drives so it took me a while before I finally coughed up the additional moolah and purchased one. Now, I would not buy any other.

I got the surprise of my life when first transferring a heap of 1GB video files over to the Sandisk Extreme and saw the progress bar just whizzing across at a rate of knots. With advertized transfer rates of up to 245MB/s they really are very quick, very quick indeed.

No prizes for guessing who chose this particular giveaway…

  1. I own two different versions of san disk one a 64GB and a 4 GB. They are really neat to use to transfer files from one PC to another. Could always use another one. Daniel.

  2. Charlie Copeland

    I often do transferring of lots of big software and data files by hand from computer to computer, especially at home between different types of computers and OSes, so really need and would appreciate a fairly large, high spped flash drive.

    I entered the contest with my email, said I got 1 entry. I then tweeted (https://twitter.com/CharlieCopelan7/status/583973167623905280 ) and shared publicly on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/charlie.copeland.9/posts/889441301120637 ) and it still says I have only 1 entry. I did both the shares using your provided buttons. What am I doing wrong?

    1. Not sure what’s going on Charlie. I checked your status and it’s showing only one entry even though you’ve obviously shared and tweeted.

      I double checked the settings and everything appears to be as it should. Dave is away at the moment and this is his area of expertise. He’s due back some time over the weekend so I’ll make sure he looks into it asap.

      Rest assured, one way or another, you will be credited with the additional entries mate.

      1. Mine only shows 1 entry as well, but I did tweet it & I shared it on Facebook!

        Thanks for the chance to win these cool items!!

  3. Expensive? HA! I remember my first 50MB drive for my Macintosh Plus. About $800 as I recall but life was good with it, until I found out there was no upward compatibility. 32GB – expensive? Indeed.

  4. I have used many Sandisk products over the years, and have come to rely on them over and over again. Would love to have this size of flash drive. Will come in very handy.

  5. I would like to win a Sandisk Extreme 32GB CZ80 USB 3.0 flash drive, and having a couple of Sandisk 8GB with other 4 GB USB products, I would like to have just a few USB’s with greater capacity when assisting clients with problems.



  6. I have two 16GB Extremes that I use to time-shift TV programs. They really are fast. 16G is a little small, though. 32G would do nicely! Thanks for the opportunity.

  7. Nice giveaway, thanks. Most Sandisk flashkey are bundled with an encryption tools, quite convenient, a rebranded version of EncryptStick I think.

  8. Have had a lot of thumb drives over the years, but the ones from San Disk work the best, last the longest and are the most reliable. Would love to have another.

  9. I though I entered before but guess it didn’t go.
    Never had a Sandisk product and would like to try this one.
    Thanks a lot and keep up the good work.

  10. I too have had trouble with the Facebook, Twitter links, so I don’t even bother trying now. One entry will have to be enough!

  11. It is amazing how many USB3 cheap flash drives have slower read and write speeds then some USB2 sticks. You really have to do your homework.

  12. My first pen drive was a Sandisk (64MB – US$99.99). It has a ‘write protect’ switch (and still works fine!).

  13. Sandisk are quality USB drives, and if I were one of the 3 lucky winners, I would use it to back up my laptop computer.

  14. Clifford Truesdell

    Wow! Another great giveaway from DCT. You guys rock! I would love to win this USB drive for my laptop and its got a 3.0 port as well.

  15. Hi,
    I never had a problem with some Sandisk Flash Drives I have. My only complaint about them is their fragility of plastic elements during handling .
    In this regard the Sandisk Extreme seems more solid.
    I am thus interested… provided that the contest is accessible to all no matter where they live !??

    1. Hi JeanJean – Everyone is included, no matter where they live.

      Winners are drawn randomly and we’ll cover the cost of postage to wherever.

  16. I can always use more storage. I already have a few Sandisks, but you can never have too many.
