Usually 128GB drives command a premium as they're at the high end of the capacity scale, but looks like Amazon are doing a pretty good price on this.
Five-year warranty, USB 3.0 and a convenient capless design. Oh, and 128 MFGB!!
Pretty good IMO.
Other sources: Picstop £70, CCL £34.98, Lambda-Tek £34.48+del

Model no: DTSE9G2/128GB
Make sure you select Amazon as the seller as the other sellers on Amazon have higher prices.

Cheapish but flimsy compared to the original SE9s and painfully slow

If speed is not an priority I'd personally go for the Grixx 128gb USB 2.0 which is £22.99 at Rakuten

Still a metal body but it looks longer than the previous SE9 design.

up to: 100MB/sec read and 15MB/sec write on large files

poor write speed makes this usb3 drive useless

The Grixx is aluminium too - and the write speed is superior IIRC

Check out the reviews on Amazon these aren't very durable

Would also go for the Grixx.
Although not everybody needs great write speeds. For ages I had a old slow 32Gb stick plugged into my router containing music. I only wrote files to it once so it didn't matter that it took ages.

I have this it's very slow avoid!

NOW - £34.45

This design is not reliable or durable, I had the gold usb2.0 16gb version. Mine stopped working after a month, only works if it's pushed in slowly and not all the way in. Thought I was just unlucky but one of the comments above has said these aren't very durable. The red 128gb usb3.0 mymemory drive is far better. The Grixx drives look really good but are apparently very prone to overheating.

Now OOS back orders being taken.

do you work for Grixx?!

Prefer the Integral Fusion USB 3.0 drives (same materials, half the length), or the older USB 2.0 8GB (shown above) which are rock solid, have lots of them, great for install iso's. Memorybits were selling them off last week, 6 x 8GB for £13.85 delivered.
Got an Expresscard based on the NEC UPD720202 Chip, to give an older laptop USB 3.0, for £3.79 off ebay (from HK), worked out the box with Linux, needed the driver disk for Windows. Protrudes slightly though. isn't flush in HP laptop. Worked well for imaging/backing up, much faster.

do the people who are saying this isn't durable have anything to back it up? I have 5 of the older models and they're built like tanks, not one has failed me.

does the new design affect the strength?

Agree, old USB 2.0 ones are rock solid, great bit of kit, but so are the Integral Fusion USB 3.0 devices, though easier to lose.

I said to read the review on Amazon

There you will find many have commented that the metal is thinner in the USB 3.0 version

And that it easily bends thus rendering it useless

I'm sure it'll be fine if handled with care but obviously it's not as robust as the 2.0
