128GB flash memory drive, USB2 connector. If you have a need for lots of storage at the very cheapest price and don't require speed, this is probably the best deal around. Good reviews too.

TCB is offering cashback of 4.2%.

(NOTE: £1 more and you're inching into the very bottom of USB3 territory)

128gb @ USB 2.0 will take so long to transfer large files. good price for the capacity.

Great USB stick, got the 64gb flavour and saved me countless times for my uni work

Cheap yes. How much more costly is it to make USB 3 drives though? Have manufacturers made millions of USB2 memory chips which they need to get rid of?

You seem tired... get to bed earlier

USB is back compatible so it'll be fine.

I know Xbox One requires USB 3.0, so I'd say you should get that for the Wii U as well. If the games play from it, I imagine it reads far more data per second than 2.0 can do.

Balls I voted hot, didn't read that it was USB 2.0. The USB 3.0 very fast version has been less than a tenner more. I'd go for that if it's still available.

That drive is USB 2 in terms of speed.

If you buy a cheap USB2.0 flash drive you risk ending up with a 2-6 / 16-20 MB/sec (W/R) item. So getting guaranteed 14 / 25 MB/sec, although indeed USB2.0 territory, is much appreciated.

Well I got a branded Kingston Traveller Edge 32GB USB2.0 and it tops @ 5MB/sec write And it was not supposed to be cheap in the first place.

I have one Grixx 128GB USB 3.0 and faster transfer. Price about £30

I have had the frizz for a while now and it a great Ian drive. However.. I have recently had to replace the drive twice due to something on Intel
NUC's which seems to make them
Blow. I have email grixx support but have had no response.
Usb2 is a no go... No point. They should stop being made now.
As a whole a great drive

Colour: Red
Read Speed: 25MB/s
Write Speed: 14MBs
Connection: USB3.0

So still not much faster but still better value for £1 more

Wouldn't rely on the cashback. Never had a problem using tcb but bought a card from mymemory at Xmas and when it didn't track they claimed I'd used a different affiliate. Nothing showing in quidco and they won't advise where I've allegedly tracked from.

Not bothered about speed so I ordered one - same company and price but via e-bay to save setting up an account.

Links for USB 3 version work but now say £30.

I've now bought three of the 64GB USB 3.0 Grixxers and they've all proved to be well made and very fast. They come formatted as FAT 32 but can easily be changed to exFat or NTFS in Windows 8.1. I have tested them all in a modern PC and a brand new USB 3.0 laptop. I also have no problems using the drives with my Panasonic TV or my Minix Android TV box. Both ATTO and CrystalDiskMark show max reads of 133 MB/s and max writes of 70 MB/s across a wide range of larger file sizes. These speeds correspond with the real usage speed when moving files around in windows 8.1. I have not experienced any kind of stuttering and have filled and emptied the drives several times to test data integrity. They are small enough to fit in tight spaces without blocking adjacent ports and their aluminum body only get mildly warm even in heavy use.

Grixx drives seem to me to be excellent value for money, although naturally I can't comment on their longevity. I see no reason to believe they will not last as well as other brands as they have a decent memory controller (advanced system information recognizes them as Innostor based pen drives) and are not at all prone to overheating. Good luck Hotdealers.
