Not bad but that write speed is a bit slow
But is very cheap
Edited by: "MarkThisDay" 14th Sep
From my experience with Integral drives, those speeds are wishful thinking. I doubt you'd ever get anywhere near them.

If it has usb 3.1 in the title then it will be fast like the Sandisk Extreme Go USB 3.1 otherwise usb 3 is marketing talk. Most Manufacturers are too embarrassed to quote write speeds.

Stop me if I'm wrong but isnt that write speed half of real world speed of usb 2....

Hmm read speeds good, but theres similarly priced drives on this site from even just today with much better speeds.

it's cheap for a reason. If this is reliable long term maybe it could be used as a read only(mostly) storage solution? Like load up all your movies and say plug into a travel router, raspberry pi zero or 3b etc to share wirelessly to mobile devices in a small to large area? (Depending on number of connected devices).. say a car or a conference

Also could be used as rom/game storage on a emulator like a raspberry pi

That's a lot of disk space. Funny some people think it's slow. I remember having to load files off cassette tapes! It took ages just for load 48k into memory!
I need a USB to put some 2k to 4k videos on, once full the USB would only be reading, is this a good choice?
I use a LOT of USB sticks and it didn't take me long to abandon Integral drives. The worst reliability I've ever found with this sort of device. Make sure you have a couple of back ups if you're going to rely on these

it's a good price and 256gb are a very good amount of storage but the slow speed will make that amount of storage less appealing. there is a number of problem that slow speed can cause to flash drives, for instance the prolonged heat that writing produces especially if you are trying to transfer several big files

For situations like this you can get away with using the cheapest flash drives you can find imho.
Provided the READ bandwidth is high enough for the largest video files ( the vast majority will be) then you are good to go!
You only really need higher quality flash drives if you intend on doing lots of READ & WRITES as it's this which wears out the IC's inside, putting media onto the IC's and then just doing loads of READS of this data puts little stress on the IC's so even cheaper memory can last a very long time in this scenario.
I don't really care much about write speeds what I do care about though is reliability how reliable are these cos I've had some Kingston ones fail me.

I bought one of these 256gb integral drives some time ago and it was useless within a couple of months. Couldn't get any PC or laptop to recognise it.

Thanks for the input. I will give it a miss then.
