Can't see the Tidal offer, only see free cinema tickets for the 32gb model.

​just scroll down on the curry's page and you will see. my wife always say about that 'man's eye'

No, wasn't man's eye but "ublock origin" was the cause. Anyway thanks for pointing it out as I wouldn't have spotted it.

​if we believe what they say, it's great. it's written in Amazon too.

wow, 3 months of tidal streaming costs £60? o_o

nice find been after some of this capacity for a while

If you want a 128gb Sandisk usb3 stick, then check Sainsburys instore.
If they have any left, they will be £17.50 - I got one last week.

Thanks. This post was the start of it. I have been to a couple of Sainsbury's for other reason and looked for them. The staff was not aware of this deal at all and thats why I looked around to find this. Thanks any way. Looks like if it was in some stores, they are all sold out.

Correct. I found them amazing quality. I may miss them after 3 months though.

Do these sticks get hot when plugged in/in use?

What the description doesn't say is that being under the Ultra brand the write speed is rubbish. If you need fast read AND write Sandisk "Extreme" are the ones to get. Currys' "up to" 100 meg description isn't helping.

Reviews are not concerning. The Grixx 128Gb has some comments of getting heating up in reviews

dunno why this is going hot most people getting the 32gb for the cinema & tidal from last week hotukdeals.com/dea…177

It depends on what is everybody's requirement dude. You cannot just generalize to say that ''most people getting 32GB for cinema''..what will happen if I need a 64GB/100GB on a single stick? I take your point but this is an open forum and your comments are respected.

Follow up on speed: the specs say under 40 seconds to write a full length movie to the stick and defines a movie as 1.2GB. Lets take them at their word and find out from that how long it takes to fill the whole device. You get 119GB useable space and being charitable lets say it takes 35 seconds per film:

119 GB / 1.2GB = 99.17 films
99.17 films x 35 seconds = 3470.95 seconds to fill
3470.95 seconds / 60 = 57.85 minutes to fill entire drive

SNORE

Unless you don't mind doing some knitting whilst things copy to the drive I would recommend never buying any Sandisk ultra sticks. Their Ultra SD cards are a bit humdrum as well. The Extreme stuff is perfectly fine!

Exception to the Ultra-is-bad rule: their Ultra SSDs are fine.
