Digital Camera World Verdict

If you are willing to commit to working with SanDisk's Pro-Blade Mags and Transport, the Pro-Blade Station makes a versatile storage solution. However, with a maximum capacity of 16TB at any one time, it’s most likely to be used as a working drive rather than long-term storage. Its speedy data transfer means it’s a good option for photographers and videographers alike.
