Popular fast USB drive.
Somewhat flimsy casing.
Lowest price ever.
Some words to make up 10.
You had 10 words already.
Yes but still wouldn't submit due to 10 words.
You had me at hello
Is it me you're looking for?
I can see it in your i's
I can see it in your files
That is bigger than my ultrabook storage.
thats what she said…. loll
sorry couldn't resist.. :(
From the USB page I found this 256GB SD card for US$109.99 : http://www.amazon.com/PNY-Elite-Performance-256GB-Speed/dp/B...
Reviews are not bad.
Good deal, but just be careful:
Kingston and PNY caught bait-and-switching cheaper components after good reviews
Not really what bait and switching is but yeah that's not cool.
I have one of these (and two 128GB ones), they're not pretty, but they're a great performer.
that's what she said….?
Nah she didn't say that
Where were you … under the bed?
how is the key handle for it? and by key handle I'm talking about the little hole in the side where you presumably put a string through so you can put it on your keychain? Some of the ones that I've had, particularly the Sandisk ones break so easily. They're pretty much useless after that…
full system backup for me on this little thingy, love it!
My 128GB one reads at 170MB/s, writes at about 90MB/s. Pretty awesome.
$79USD last month. I bought 2. Very decent performance. Ordinary casing
I've had a few of the 64GB and 128GB ones, I wouldn't recommend, died in a few months.
They also only have 1 years warranty. Many of their competitors are offering lifetime warranty.
Can other buyers of the 32/64/128s comment on longevity as well? Presumably quite a few people have had these things for months and months by now.
I'm eager to get one but I need reliability.
have the 128gb one and its working fine. another one a mate has is working fine too
Based on the positive amazon reviews, my experience is probably rare/outlier.
Have had a 128 gig over 6 months no problems
I get 190MB/s+ read and 130MB/s+ write across my two 128s and 256.
Haven't had the 256 for long, but had both 128s since April and both of them have had their capacity's worth of data written to them a few times.
My 128GB is a daily driver, has a bunch of recovery tools including a full bootable Win8.1PE environment, and absolutely flies. Formatted exFAT, no problem on PC or Mac.
I did manage to crack the plastic slider tho.
I end up not pulling the body up and leaving the end exposed.
thats what …. nevermind.
+1 for a 128GB purchased in April. Use it everyday for storage, streaming, you name it. Take on on my bike for a daily commute so it does get thrown around a lot. As everyone has mentioned, cheap quality casing, but hey, its not for show, its to be used.
Comes to $89.44 in AUD
3 camels sent me notification of price drop.
Bought without hesitation then came here to post & … About 2 hours too late
Thanks. Got 128 GB instead - will never fill up 256.
That's what everyone said when I bought my first 4gb hdd…
Not to mention 640k memory… ;)
And i had a 10MB HDD i need to clear 50% off each time i wanted to install & run a game.
There are always going to be different sizes, uses, people, opinions.
I guess I am bit older , my first harddisk was 20 mb . it was big and expensive.
a huge 1 photo a hard drive to … to
That was the first HDD that I had too… maybe 40 with DBLSPACE…
what I meant was that's what everyone said about the first 4GB that I bought… I did have other drives before that too though :)
Someone has post the comment that 256 GB is slower. "I was about to buy the 256GB version of this drive, but after reading reviews elsewhere, it turns out the 256GB version is much slower than its 128GB little brother.
It's too bad Amazon lumps all of the reviews of the various sizes together."
I have both.
That's not the case.
Yeah, thanks for confirming, that sounded odd/suss as parallelism should increase rather than decrease speed for larger capacity in such things.
Thanks, really good deal
Can anyone confirm after how many uses before the unit dies?
For your usage I would estimate between 137 and 152 insertions.
I hear they last longer if you insert them with your teeth. With one eye closed.
And use protection!
No one can answer that.
Nice deal. I have the 128Gb version and going strong. I use it daily.
Just bought one. Thanks OP
gr8, now I can transfer all of the 3d PORN more quicker and portable
Thanks. Ordered a 128gb to replace a 64gb I lost.
I distinctly remember my fist USB flash drive was a whopping 256 MB (yes with an "M"), and cost about $200. It was the new cool thing.. Back in 2002 iirc.
That makes this a BARGAIN
btw what's the recommended file system for flash drives this size? exFAT?
I am using exFAT on my PNY 128GB. I used to use NTFS, but there is a problem with photo files.
There's also Silicon Power 128GB at the same price…
(O_O) which one's better :(
From the feedback I can see, Silicon Power is a faster drive.
Read: 192.5 MB/s
Write: 115.3 MB/s
got one. thanks op
I never knew that 256GB USBs existed and for under $100!
Maybe in five years this will be the norm. My 16GB Kensington 3.0 from Flingshot is still my main.
I don't think the price is valid anymore - it shows $93.99 USD for me :(
Has anyone bought any of the cheap 128gb swivel type ones off Ebay before? They run for around $13 or so..
Pamela Anderson's breasts are more real. 128GB, the absolute bare minimum you should be paying for that is $65. Can guarantee it's fake.
actually Pamela's breasts are real, she had the implants taken out…
A mate bought one each for himself and his missus and at this stage they are fine, he's loaded them up without memory or playback issues.
Im just wondering if anyone has had a positive experience as it sure looks too good to be true at that price not to mention that is a crappy looking design!
No he doesn't. They will be fakes. Run h2testw on one and you'll find the fake. Probably 8GB or 16GB at best and then just repeating. I'll bet he hasn't come close to filling it.
Edit: You ask if anyone has bought one and then say your mate has bought two?…
does this mean my dream of students carrying around a VM on a stick (instead of a physical laptop) is finally practical ?
Can memory stick be bought for micro?
