  1. The size is something to shout about. I for one always move files from one machine to another.
    Thanks for the chance to get a drive of this size.

  2. Just about outa space on my LT…one of these would solve my space problem!

  3. I am wondering if this has any way to restore performance the way the Trim function works on SSDs that use the SATA interface.

  4. Great product, thanks for the giveaway guys ! I’d love to win this one, cause I need some extra space, and I’m always loosing my tiny usb sticks.

  5. I like to take a lot of pictures when I am away from home and I like to show them to various people at convenient times. 420 gb would be very helpful.


  6. This is one the best in the world today. Thanks for offering this Jim. I hope I can win this time.

  7. Thanks to DCT and SanDisk for this amazing opportunity. This size of portable storage is exactly what I need.

  8. Michaeleen Muhovich

    I have been saving all my photo files on a series of flash drives, and the ability to have them all in one place would be a plus, and very much appreciated. Thanks for the opportunity to win this very practical device.

  9. Jerry Lafferty

    Outstanding giveaway, Since my NAS went down I am constantly shuffeling files back and forth. This would really come in handy about now.

  10. Lets not forget, without DCT, there would not be this great opportunity to win such an “AWESOME” prize…Lets hear it for DCT!!!

  11. Rick McClenthen

    I would love to win this awesome SanDisk SSD. Thanks for the chance to win!!!

  12. this ssd is a real great idea. usb solutions remain an important way to keep your system running. MS just cut storage limits on their cloud pointing out the need for storage that you can maintain under your full control.
