      VERY GOOD A+++++ #winning #liked #superliked Will use again

    •  

      Reading Newegg and Amazon, seems like a gamble if the one you buy will actually achieve the speeds or not, the metal casing can get pretty hot.

        I have the 64 gb version that I bought in the last sale, let me assure you it sits pretty in my key bunch and has great performance. No over heating even when I moved 20 gigs into it. It's metal anyway so it cools real quick.

        Plastic usb drives now feel cheap to hold after using this… I was initially sceptical but am glad I bought it.

      •  

        Metal case gets slightly warm I wouldn't label hot, or maybe it's just mine.

    •  

      Not bad for the price. Realistic file transfer rates are about 120/45MB/s r/w and although it can get quite warm, performance isn't affected.

      Kinda new at price matching stuff, do you mind explaining how to do it?

        go there and show them the webpage.

        •  

          Oh, that's just it? That's simpler than I thought.

          Will they automatically reduce the price as well to 14.25 when I do that? I mean, the page on HN says $15 after all

          Edit: Nvm jaydeenturk already answered it. Thanks everyone!

          It's part of the Bunnings-style "lowest price guarantee" scam.

          They will automatically reduce it for YOU.

          A true "lowest price guarantee" would have them reducing their listed price after they found out they weren't the lowest.

          @KentT:

          I disagree that it's a scam. OW tend to reduce the listed price pretty quickly after someone has price-matched. Do you think the customer service rep who does the initial price-match has the ability to change pricing Australia-wide or would it have to go up the chain first?

          @dazweeja:
          If they were honest about it, it should be communicated to whomever is in charge that a price match has been made. Let's be generous and say that takes 30mins to notify, verify, update.

          If they were serious about it, they would have a "price match" code on checkout that notified the higher-ups so they could verify and adjust their pricing semi-automatically.

          Obviously they make more money just saying "lowest price" and having people believe them, rather than actually having the lowest prices. It's sleazy charging a higher price to anyone who doesn't call them on it.

          Officeworks price is currently $19.

          @KentT:

          I actually have the opposite experience. I'm usually disappointed that they change the listed price so quickly that I can't get the 5% discount.

        •  

          @dazweeja:
          It's re-priced quickly if that extra 5% is costing them more money than they can get from overcharging customers who didn't know it was cheaper elsewhere.

          Which means they have time for the cost-benefit analysis.

          Officeworks price is currently $19.

        Go to an officeworks and show them the price that harvey norman has it for. They'll confirm it on their end (checking online on their own computers at the counter) then beat the price by 5%

          not even that complex the times I've done it.. They look at ur phone and do it straight away.. no confirmation or managers needed.

          @Gavman: Yeah that was the case the last time I had something price matched. I'm assuming it's at the discretion of the sales rep as to how thorough they want to be with the price match.

        • +2 votes

          @jaydeenturk: True, Some are more sceptical than others. Also comes down to the deal. In this case from $19 to $14 they wont blink. They will be more cautious if you price matching a Laptop from $1000 to $600 etc. and check if its in stock, if its an Australian company that charges GST. Theyll also factor in the cost of shipping as well.

        •  

          @Gavman: Yeah i guess it just depends on how reasonable the deal appears to be.

    •  

      Can't price match. Lady said it's Samsung and on clearance.

  •  

    just bought two of these at the $19 special. oh well, guess i could use another two at this price. can never have enough as they always seem to vanish!!

  •  

    Thanks OP, I think I'm gonna get one from OW - I need myself a USB a bit bigger than the 4 and 8GBs I use around the house…

  •  

    Left like 10 behind the counter. Harvey norman melbourne central.

  •  

    damn good price

  •  

    Dam, was going to post this after I picked mine up this afternoon. Selfish me.

  •  

    Good thing I checked here after lunch. I was about to head to HN after work for their sale on this, but just as well the OW is across the road. Thank you!

      Funny that OW stores near me dont have stock any more. Went to Box Hill South and none on display and it now says "check Stock" online.

      Easily Getting 100mb/s + with my 64GB version

      •  

        Not with the reports İ've read

        And write? Also it cannot sustain and fluctuates rapidly. Unless you meant burst speeds which aren't a great indicator

        Also synthetic benchmarks might paint a different picture to say a Windows transfer. People whom are praising it seemed to go off by benchmarks alone.

        Unless there was a revision somewhere down the line

  •  

    Sold out Blacktown Officeworks. Plenty at Harvey Norman though.

  •  

    Just tested the 32GB version. Initially writes at 50MByte/s then gradually slows…..

    Writing speed: 20.8 MByte/s
    Reading speed: 99.1 MByte/s
    H2testw v1.4

    I left this sucker in my computer for more than 3 hours. It got hot, but not as hot as my Sandisk ultra fit. I pressed it against my cheek and I went to heaven. Metallic feels so nice on the skin.

    Anyway, I highly recommend this!

    I saw 50+ of these at Harvey Norman Broadway and in the CBD store.

  •  

    I got one thanks. There's lots at the Adelaide City cross store

  •  

    Plenty left at HN Broadway (Sydney). Probably 50+

  •  

    Heaps at Marion [SA], but the price isn't marked down on the display or cards. They scan @ $15 no probs tho - no stock over the road at O.W.

  •  

    Just grabbed one, heaps left at Harvey Norman Moorabbin :)

  •  

    Grabbed one at OW Ascot Vale with a price match. Had to ask at the counter since I couldn't see it on the floor and they grabbed one from a cupboard. Happily price matches after checking with a manager.

  •  

    Bought 2 at HN Gafney St Coburg, plenty left.

  •  

    Thanks OP, bought two at HN Chadstone VIC 14 left. Price reduced at checkout.

  •  

    I cannot understand now why 32GB is cheaper than 16GB …. :p

  •  

    Heaps at Knox, VIC
    At midday their system said 254 in stock across the country I assume

    OW in WA is $29.95

    Received this drive. Transferring several video files about 8GB using USB 3.0 port and the transfer speed is hovering constantly 22 to 24 MB/s transfer rate. This is rubbish product!

    •  

      Advertised transfer speed is 130 MB/s. Actual transfer speed is 22 MB/s which is running at 15% of claimed speed. How can this possibly be a great product? This is false advertising by Samsung.
