    Wish it's USB C 🤔

    Pretty damn cheap alright but I can't see a use for me.
    USB C I would've been all over it. Now it's just a cheap 256GB USB which I could get but I'd be just using it like an external drive anyway..

      Don’t use USB sticks as external drives, they will fail fast. What missing is firmware that balances writes across the whole drive.

        I’m using a 32GB stick as poor man’s SSD for my MacMini. Boots from USB, much faster than booting from the HDD. What’s that about them failing fast?

          Yeah some can fail fast, others refuse to die. I still have my very first ever USB 1GB stick (I arrived to the USB party late), which was used for everything back in the day including ReadyBoost on an old system for years. Still as good as new. Another 32GB I use heavily everyday has been rock solid (though it's auto backed up daily too as I won't be surprised if it fails tomorrow).

          I did have a Corsair 16GB which barely saw much activity and become unrecognisable after a few uses.

          Generally though I have external drives (HDD and SSD) for external use and don't need USB for that task anymore.

          Mostly in write-heavy applications when a file gets updated often, the same area of memory is re-written many times which is lethal to memory cells.

        Yeah exactly. I've already got an external drive to do all that.
        But I'm tempted to buy because it's a good price. Won't ever use it though..

    It only just registered, this is Micro USB not USB-C. Hmmm
