Toshiba is also interested in creating a safer environment (ECP- environmental conscious products) where the impact is reduced throughout a product cycle. Toshiba Corporation is oriented toward electronic component because of that there are subsidiaries that are based on only one major product. 


My favorite product of this company’ hard drive is the 1.8 inch Hard Disk Drive. Because of it size, this product could be use in mps 3 player, portable GPS system and ultra thin computers. Its capacity is ranging from 320 GB and was developed with a new system called PMR (perpendicular magnetic recording) which makes a massive amount to be stored in a very small product.


SanDisk Corporation was founded in 1988 and it is one of the world’s largest supplier of flash memory. This company is known for its non volatile memory technology. SanDisk develops and manufactures  flash storage for a diverse number of electronic system and digital devices.  SanDisk’s headquarter is in Milpitas, California. There are more than 1100 US patent and 600 foreign patents.

My favorite product is SanDisk Ultra® Backup USB Flash Drive because of it memory 64 GB which aloud me to store my data , music, movies and pictures. I like this product not only because I do not have to worry to store my data into the computer but also because if I will have to buy a computer with that memory it will cost much more. Even if website like IGoogle start providing the “cloud storage” I will still have files that I want to keep for myself. Because one of my majors is acting I have to watch many movies and from what I know IGoogle does not store movies.
