Handy if you have a low storage laptop/tablet and you need more local storage space - this is also assuming you have a full size USB port to connect to it on the tablet side.

I just purchased for £18.99 non prime

Do these get super hot and burn out like the Sandisk drives?

I have heard a few stories about these type of drives overheating such as the Sandisk ones. The Lexar JumpDrive does seem to do this according to the reviews.

I think they overheat in USB3 sockets but not in USB2 ones...well, they get hot anyway, not sure the manufacturer would call it overheating.

I have two of the Sandisk Ultrafits. One get hot during use. The other one is just off the scale. I can feel the heat emanating from the side of the laptop. Take it out of the socket and touch the metal and it's hot enough to burn. Just ridiculous.

Agreed, and can't be good for the life of the device.

Probably not good for the laptop either. But its really the extra heat generated that puts me off. It's almost as hot as the bottom of the laptop where the CPU is located. I originally thought it was an internet myth but there's definitely something wrong with those drives in terms of heat output. It gets hot even when you're using it for read/writes.

If it's that hot it could cause a fire.

now that would be a very hot deal

Totally random question but would one of these be good for *desktop* storage in a raspberry pi? A hard drive is overkill and a microsd is too small (or even with a larger one, I prefer not booting off the same drive as storage). I was thinking to use one for a samba share which I would need ~50gb for...

Would this be fast enough to record from the TV? My current USB drives are all too slow apparently to do so.

I'm assuming because you added £1.01 worth of other goods to your basket so you met the £20 free delivery minimum?

@OP - good price for good usb stick.

​yes I bought two of them.

I have one in my XPS13. Does not overheat like the Sandisk ones do. They got crazy hot!! I use my Lexar constantly plugged in and used as storage. Perfect for that use

Got a Samsung 128GB USB3 been using it with an HP250 which has 128GB SSD no over heating issues with those ones.
