Don't know what other description is required but here are the details again:
Lexar JumpDrive S73 (USB 3.0)
Size: 32 Gb
Price: $25 each
Shop: Domayne (Fyshwick, ACT)
I hope this helps.
Good price, different price online though D: online link
That's why we went there hoping to score the $38 ones (catalog price). When I saw they further dropped the prices down to $25 I purchased four instead of two.
Tested them out and they were OK. I might go back again tomorrow and buy two more.
I had hoped to get them to change the price online, so I sent a query. Unfortunately, the online query just redirects to the local store manager - so the response I got back was:
Please be aware that each store is a different franchise and our website has to suit all of Australia
I have decided to price the USB drives cheaper in store compared to our half yearly price because I have looked at the prices my local competitors are selling this type of product and want to ensure we have the best price in Canberra.
Hope this information helps and look forward to seeing you in the store again soon
Good Guy Peter, gives good explanation
Looks great. It appears to be just like my Lexar drives, in that it is just a storage device instead of one that comes loaded with crap i don't want.
Is that a giant sign or a very small employee?
That's my hand that you see so it was trying to balance the item against the price and the dumb guy showed up. Oh well, at least you know it's domain because of the clothes.
Did you ask the $64k question: Hey bro, do you want those Betties on OzBargain or what? :p
I thought it's Lt. Riker getting beamed down.
sigh I just outed myself as a nerd…
with a name like 'Chewie' it wasn't a secret…
Half sized employees, you can pay them half as much.
Yep, corporate downsizing.
Any idea what the USB 2.0 speeds on this would be like?
If this is the same stick that's been surfacing in other deals on OzBargain I think it pretty much maxes out USB 2.0 speeds. In theory any USB 3.0 device capable of >30MB/s R/W should saturate USB 2.0.
nice one, upvoted for effort
is it the same one?
The one I got was a 32Gb. This link you've posted is for the 64Gb variety. Same "class", perhaps, i. e. S73 but different sizes.
Is it nationwide?
Not sure about Nationwide or not.
+1 for both good deal and the quality photo of product/proof of price.
So often people just post deals for particular stores and don't give us any sort of proof.
I should really upgrade this 256MB one I got free from a convention years ago.
These days they throw 256MB ones at people they don't like.
EDIT: Oh says me who has a 256MB CF in the card reader as we speak…
For those interested, benchmarks from an Amazon reviewer…
In the USB 2.0 slot:
+ the 3.76 GB file copied TO (write speed) the Lexar drive in 1:54 (114 seconds = 33.77 MB/Sec);
+ the 3.76 GB file copied FROM (read speed) the Lexar drive in 1:37 (97 seconds = 39.69 MB/Sec);
In the USB 3.0 slot:
+ the 3.76 GB file copied TO (write speed) the Lexar drive in 1:41 (101 seconds = 38.12 MB/Sec);
+ the 3.76 GB file copied FROM (read speed) the Lexar drive in 1:22 (82 seconds = 46.95 MB/Sec);
My OzBargain conclusion:
It's slow for USB 3.0 but we all expected this for $25. It's actually a bargain buy because it will easily saturate USB 2.0 and you get a little extra on top using it in USB 3.0 slots. And it's cheaper than most 32GB USB 2.0 devices which perform much worse.
Kudos OP. I'm going to check out my local Domayne tomorrow. It can replace my prized Kingston HyperX as top dog until I can afford a super fast USB 3.0 stick.
Wow impressive, better than my Patriot Supersonic Express
great speeds for usb2.. faster than my failed 64gb corsair gtr
would want 64gb though
I hadn't seen another pair of hands like Ray McKigney's until today. You are his successor.
I don't know what you just said but I laughed a little inside
+ved for awkward employee shot :D
Good deal, shame no stores in Sydney that do electrical, otherwise I'd have picked up a bunch tomorrow
serious? what about auburn?
do they do electrical there?
these use slower flash memory, so the transfer speed are similar to USB 2.0 drive but advertised as USB 3.0 drive!
be warned: it is VERY SLOW if you planning to use on USB 3.0 ports!
check the user reviews
however the price is quite good (but USB Flash drive prices dived recently?)
Thanks for all the votes. :D
The trick photography got you a few bonus votes I reckon :D
Top effort mate. Regardless of whether it syncs at USB 3.0 speeds.
Does JB or the others price match based on picture such as the above or do they need a copy of the tax receipt ?
P.S : Gave you a shot of green (+1 vote)
