Using an iXflash is easier and cheaper than transferring content stored on the cloud

  • 2021-03-26

Recently Verizon introduced a new Verizon cloud service for Verizon Wireless and Verizon Fios subscribers, with unlimited storage for $19.99 a month. As we take and store more and more pictures and videos with our cell phones, that may sound like a good deal so that you don’t have to worry about running out of storage. Of course, there are plenty of other cloud storage services available for varying amounts of data quotas provided by companies like Apple, Google, Amazon, Dropbox, and many many others. But there lies the problem, once you start using one of these services, you tend to get trapped into continuing to use them and paying a perpetual monthly fee. With iXflash, you can control where you store all the hundreds or maybe thousands of pictures and videos you’ve taken and you won’t have continuous reoccurring fees.

Often times cloud services will pull you in with great offers or even with free cloud storage, that is until you exceed their data caps or they change their minds and implement a pay scale for what you were led to believe was free. Take Google for instance. They offered a free unlimited service to store all of your photos and videos (given some compression for files that were too large), but free nonetheless. Now, they say that is changing this year and they will switch to a new pay scale model. Even if $10 or $20 a month doesn’t seem like a lot of money, it all adds up. Think about the fact you’re paying $120 to $240 a year, which pricing will certainly increase over time with inflation. Add on top of that, once you’ve loaded your extensive content of images, they know the likelihood that you’ll stop using their service is minimal because it’s not easy to transfer files to another cloud service and you don’t want to lose access to the content you already stored with them.

Why commit to a reoccurring monthly fee for possibly the rest of your life, when you can merely purchase an inexpensive iXflash, that can be shared with multiple users, and 1 or 2 large capacity HDD or SSD, for your own personal archival system? Keep all your content in the security of your own environment, free from hackers, and it doesn’t come with a reoccurring expense every month. Don’t be chained to a cloud service, free yourself to control your own content and save your money for more important things in life…
