SanDisk released the results from an
online survey conducted on its behalf by Harris Interactive from
July 28-August 1, 2011 among 2,294 U.S. adults aged 18 and
older2. The survey found that 79 percent of U.S. adults
who have digital photos plan on passing them down to future
generations. Photos are so precious that 64 percent of U.S. adults
would not consider destroying their family photo collection for any
amount of money, not even for one million dollars.
Valuable photos deserve reliable
storage solutions. SanDisk developed the SanDisk Memory Vault using
Chronolock™ technology, which incorporates the key elements of
advanced solid-state storage to create a proprietary memory
management solution. This allows the device to provide consumers
with peace of mind that their precious photos and videos will be
preserved for up to 100 years. The SanDisk Memory Vault comes in 8
gigabyte3 (GB) and 16GB capacities carrying MSRPs of
$49.99 and $89.99. To learn more about the online survey and the
