SanDisk Ultra USB3 Flash Drives 16GB $9, 32GB $16, 64GB $32 @ MSY

1250

If you thought this was cheap, well MSY has just dropped the price of these flash drives to make them possibly the cheapest USB3 drives in Australia. I'm guessing it won't be long before Officeworks matches, so use them for a further 5% off with their price-beat policy. Cheers :)

    I don't think Officeworks do price matching with MSY.

      However, if you happen to find a cheaper advertised price on an identical stocked item that's in stock with our competitor - even if it's on sale, we will not only match it, we'll beat it by 5%.

      They sure do.

      I don't think Officeworks do price matching with MSY.

      100% yes. Done it many times. They just pull up MSY's current price list. In my case, they've never called the store.

      •  

        Not quite. IF MSY is not local, they add in postage costs too. The Maroochydore store told me this when I tried to price match a Logitech mouse they both stocked. TGG however had no such qualms on the MSY $9 Samsung EVO 32g memory thingamejig for phones. Local TGG also did the mouse, no price beat though, just matched.

        •  

          Well yes, because you can't get it from whichever MSY you price matched without paying for postage.

          @Flying Ace:
          And yet the TGG (Kawana), dont care about that. Its a technical argument by OW pitting city against country. When your argument is the pure simplicity of 'BUT I HAVE TO ADD IN DELIVERY', maybe youre missing the point.

          Probably 60% of OW customers can get the price match, while 100% of TGGs can.

        They've obviously rang in the past (rarely answered) :D

    •  

      Seconded.

      They have done for my stepdaughter at Carlton NSW.

      I've had managers at Officeworks completely reject price matches with MSY. They claimed that MSY are a grey importer with no Australian warranty. I've made complaints with the head office but they just redirect it back to the manager of the store.

        Depends on the store. Officeworks and The Good Guys at Castle Hill have both refused me price matches.

        Officeworks Castle Hill refused to price match portable hard drives with Dick Smith because it was an online click and collect deal. They said I had to ring the 1300 and price match with them online (by which time item had sold out at Dick Smith).

        Good Guys Castle Hill treated me as if I had leprosy when I asked to price match. They flat out said they would only price match with a handful of major competitors - JBHiFi, Dick Smith, Officeworks, JOyce Mayne, Bing Lee.

        Have had some luck price matching at Officeworks Blacktown. I try not to bother with price matching anymore. These companies just BS their way out of it and I'm out of money for petrol and waste my time. They're doing a great job alienating customers with their dodgy promotions.

    Why do websites want me to sign up before I can see the postage cost? Do they think it helps them? I can't remember a time I haven't just closed the page..

    8GB USB3 (real) is the dream, for running my HTPC OS. Keeps all SATA ports for big storage. But speed sometimes suffers 8GB and smaller, and we really are splitting hairs at this pricepoint.

    All over it!

    The 32GB drive is better value at 50¢ per GB, compared to the 16GB drive at 56.3¢.

  •  

    Can anyone advice if the 16gb is enough to be used as a Recovery drive?

    • +1 vote

      definitely yes, at least all my laptops require way less than 16gb.

      •  

        Thanks for confirming! Went out and got one.

    Goddamnit, I just bought the 32GB USB 3.0 model for $20 from OfficeWorks.

    was about to buy.. till they wanted $15.99 for shipping

  •  

    Reminds me of Flingshot's $9 Verbatim USB3 drive deal https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/89103 (that came weeks after I took up a $13 deal)

    •  

      Those things were really slow.. slower than USB2 cards I've had.

      Anyone have speed tests of these Sandisk Ultras?

      •  

        The Verbatims are only 9-10 MB/s write but sequential read has hit 150MB/s

  •  

    I also bought from the last deal. Any reason why Tightarse (or the shops) focuses on memory ?

    Looking at 32GB performing among the worst. That's why they are cheap…

      Their performance is garbage for large files.

        Yeah the "Ultra's" are pretty average, but their similar looking "Extreme's" are one of the fastest out there.

      •  

        Just as a test, I ran Windows 8.1 on one of the 16GB ones. Booted up alright, installer was good - a little laggy occasionally. Then I booted into the OS. Took me 10 minutes just to get Google Chrome. It's not on a slow laptop either, I'm running this on an i5-4670k and 8GB of RAM, USB 3 port on the motherboard. From there, it was alright. Speeds were meh. File Manager still didn't have an icon.

      I currently have a 32GB Corsair Voyager USB 2.0 flash drive and it has slow write speed, but I feel these Sandisk Ultra isn't that much faster, so no point of me replacing my Voyager. Rather wait for the Sandisk Extreme to come down in price.

    ARSE3.0 :)

    Wondering if I should wait till OW drops the price on these, or if I should make the detour to MSY…

    •  

      Why not go to OW and get a price beat?

  •  

    Thanks bought a few at Officeworks greenacre. No issue price beating a screenshot of this page.

  •  

    Shopping express does the extreme 32gb for $30 include shipping (3.95 for me). Not sure if it's bargain for you, but looks like is the cheapest in Aust market.

    But to those who just wants the GB and not speed, then price match it at OW for 15.20 for 32Gb is a bargain then i guess.

  •  

    Just bought the 32GB from OW for $29.96, didn't have to price match it. She said it had just come down today.
    by the way, she said every OW has to price match MSY! No excuses

        no I didn't! Thanks for making me realize I'm an idiot!
        Bought the wrong one, time to pay them another visit

        •  

          LOL

  •  

    Just price matched the 32GB and 64GB from OW. Easy as anything. Thanks OP!

  •  

    Thanks for the post.
    The officeworks-Geelong price matched and sold at 5% less. I got two of 16 GB and one 32 GB.
    Thanks TA.
