I'm asking myself why a USB flash drive would need to be refurbished.

I'm asking myself why a USB flash drive would need to be refurbished.

It's actually usually 14 day returns or damaged mechanisms rather than failed PCBs (as you couldn't even fix that), but I did kind of wonder. A good price all the same but I would put anything I really valued on it, that's a lot of data to cart around - that said, am sure it'll be fine for moving stuff to the TV or between computers.

Non refurbished are £24.99 but OOS, for peace of mind I'd wait for stock!

Flash memory only has a limited number of write cycles, do you really want to risk getting one that has been using them up??

Yes, write limitations are real, I have an old trusty 2GB I used for small data transfers that is down to 1.35GB now.

Except that, as stated above, these will have been changes of mind and will be virtually, if not totally, unused. They're not comparable to your ancient USB stick.

Good price for 128GB, though too big for me.

The thing is YOU DONT KNOW THAT. Yes, in many cases it will be true; but for the sake of a few pounds, I would not take the risk.
If someone has been using one of these as a booster on an old Vista PC/Laptop, it could be worn out and STILL be returned in time to be sold on again.

Each cell in a Flash drive has only ~1,000 write cycles, and then it dies/goes read only; no refurb can restore those used write cycles; then there is the chance something unsavoury has been loaded and "deleted" on it.......


I should also say I had had issues with Corsair Slider versions in the past, where the slider lock breaks, and it becomes a PITA to get the thing inserted. I only buy fixed drives now.

Of course you don't know that. You don't know that you won't be run over by a bus if you leave the house. But it's a matter of risk, and you and I are seeing the risks differently. Even if each cell has only 1000 write cycles (seems low to me), this thing contains 128GB so is going to require a huge amount of effort to have any noticeable effect in a short time, given that there will be wear-levelling.

Tried 2 Corsair refurbs back in the day. Both failed in short measure. These are just customer returns repacked and shipped out, usually with dodgy chips or firmware that can't really be fixed. The Corsair forums taught me to steer well clear of this company's "refurbs". Caveat emptor.

Are there any good deals on USB flash drives at the moment? I only recently realised I don't have one big enough for HD video.

I'm still using my Grixx 128GB USB 3.0 from around 2 years ago, hasn't missed a beat :)

Decent stick. I have the 256gb version.

It's a tad big so on some devices can be awkward with plugging it in

Thanx for that, tried looking for what you mentioned (but obviously can't ... )

Do you have a direct link for that please?. :-)
