Seems to be a decent price compared to the competition. 256GB is currently selling for $134 at Officeworks if anyone wants to price match.

Note: Thanks to @Ausdave for pointing out the description and packaging difference. His comment is below, so you may wish to do your own research. It seems this product code has two packaging formats, the first being "USB 3.1" & the second being "USB 3.2 Gen 1". This could just be a marketing issue. This is beyond me

Edit 2: This video explains all the renaming difference between USB 3.0, 3.1, 3.2, Gen 1, Gen 2. Very sneaky.

  • Lifetime warranty is good. Unfortunately I had to use it as my first CZ880 died!

  • Good price.

    Still I thinking buy an SSD with an usb3.0 enclosure, maybe a better option for ppl who need more storage on the go.

    Product image says usb 3.2, but title says 3.1.

    Just something to be aware of.

    Most likely it's 3.1

    Edit: I Googled 3.1 and 3.2 descriptions:
    Both USB 3.0 and USB 3.1 are to be considered generations of the USB 3.2 specification. USB 3.1 Gen 1 (formerly known as USB 3.0), which offers speeds up to 5 Gbps, will be rebranded into USB 3.2 Gen 1 while USB 3.1 Gen 2, which supports communication rates up to 10 Gbps, will be called USB 3.2 Gen 2 moving forward.

      This is what happens when a bunch of people create standards while high on cheap drugs.

      Cheers. I put a video up that explains it. It's pretty messed up what they have done. I am not keen on the slow AF USB's all being renamed to appear to be "newer" and "better"

  • So it's 5 Mbps USB.
    Easily fast enough to cater for the read speed of 420MB/s.

  • i've had a few previous models of this. The slider is fragile and will eventually break and no longer extend the stick. Don't know if they've fixed this yet.

  • Would this be ok for downloading the contents of a 200GB PC as a backup storage?

  • Seems to be out of stock or expired from Amazon.

    Officeworks have price matched (by default) at the time of posting:

    128GB $45.99
    256GB $78.80

    I got 2 of the 256's from OW, from looking at reviews, they seem to be the only flash drives that don't totally choke to serial speeds on small files, let's see what they are like when I test them.
