    Got one, thanks OP.

    Reliability of solid-state USB flash drives compared to portable SSD brands?

    Direct review and benchmark comparisons seem sparse

    MTBF equivalent

    Sustained temp perf graphs with consistent testing between models?

    Could always use a 1tb NVMe in an enclosure; more than twice the speed and around $30 cheaper all up. I use this one https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B08RVC6F9Y (also supports regular SATA m.2 drives) with a Kingston NV1 that tops out at 950MB/s read and write, which is the limit of the enclosure.

    I guess the downside is an enclosure would be twice the size, and you have to use a cable…but it's oh so neat!

      Yeah I grabbed an OWC Envoy m.2 enclosure which seems to be more limited by the drive itself (around 1500MB/s) to expand the storage on my mac mini and it's been absolutely stellar so far. Not as portable as a flash drive which can sit on your keyring by any means, so they both have their use-case, but I couldn't be more happy with the performance of external m.2 enclosure so far.

    • I’ve just returned that very enclosure (Sabrent EC-SNVE). It’s got the right chipset for the new M1 macs to get the most speed from usb but it constantly disconnected. From what I could see, the thermal material inside was barely touching the drive (250GB 970 EVO). Gutted as it was a nicely built enclosure.

      • Could you not just grab a thicker bit of thermal padding to bridge the gap?

        • It was touching on one side but when looking at the drive attached in the enclosure, it wasn’t level with the edge, probably as it’s held in with a rubber grommet as opposed to a screw.

    • Isn't it just better to get a USB 3.2 1x2 SSD? Something like Samsung T7?

  • +3

    These flash drives take me back to my uni days but back then 512MB was the bees knees. But as others have commented, your much better off using an external SSD nowadays for better performance and reliability

    • Woah yeah, I remember kids used to wear those USB mp3 players around their necks circa 2002. If someone had a 512MB one, they had rich parents :p

        lol. yeah, I remember trying to find that happy medium between quantity and quality for storing what I wanted to listen to on 128MB. lol. I think 160kbps was my go-to to preserve the sound quality back then.

        And now we can get 1TB to fit on your thumbnail.

  • What’s the difference between this and a regular SSD?

    • This plugs into a USB slot, while a regular SSD plugs either into a SATA cable or M.2 slot.

    For this price you could get a USB-C & faster speed:

    Wait for the T7 to go on sale around $200.

    • These are much larger, different kind of product.

  • +1

    I guess if portability is really important, this is worth it.
    Like everyone's pointed out, I'd happily get a 2.5 inch or m.2 SSD with an enclosure.

  • These are good for storage on RPi. Much faster (obvs) than a microSD card, plus you don't have the hassle of wondering when the microSD will inevitably die from the constant read/writes.

  • I got one as a free replacement from Sandisk when my 128GB ultrafit died. Super happy with it, and I was told it is basically a SSD in memory stick size

  • +1

    Kinda want to get one just for bragging rights lol

  • Unplug these after ten minutes and it makes a great pocket warmer, too!
