How on earth is this 254 degrees with USB 2.0??


You can always post better option for same money... sorry, you have never posted anything here in 7 years ?

USB 2.0 = COLD
Still perfect for low end devices with no USB3 such as Raspberry Pi, and similar

I have the 64 gb version and these are seriously slow.will take forever to fill.

People must have a lot of time on their hands waiting for files to transfer to this.

Going back in time to a near obsolete spec isn't a better option.

Why would you buy a 128GB flash drive just for a Raspberry Pi? At least with USB3.0 you can use it a proper transfer speeds in a variety of devices.

Lack of USB 3.0 isn't really an issue, people tend to get confused, but having USB 3.0 doesn't mean it's fast. I have some USB3.0 sticks that are half the speed of USB 2.0, don't forget USB 2.0 supports upto 480mbps or about up to ~35mb/s, most 'cheap' memory sticks usb 2 or usb 3 will do under 100mb/s.

Anyway, my raspberry Pi is my PVR for Freeview TV (using £6 Xbox One tuners) so I'm after a 128GB USB for it but want close to 20mb/s read/write speeds.
Looks perfect for my Pi Plex server. Great price.

Wow didn't know it could do that.
Well I'm not constantly in a rush transferring films/tv shows. Perfect for me. Unless you moaners want to sure a USB 3.0 for £17.50

According to a review on Amazon this stick bench's @ 37MB/s (296mbps). They also claim the official speed spec is 20MB/s (160mbps)
See here: amazon.co.uk/gp/…QY4

For a USB2 pen that's fantastic bandwidth , hot bargain imho.

Looks to be a different model, that one is USB 3.0 and claims much faster speeds.
Some potential idea of read and write speeds here

I think that we should be starting to get back to last years prices, where USB 3 sticks have been around this price, so will hold off to see what happens over the next few months.
Perfect to pop music on for use in my car. Heat added.

You've clearly got some counterfeit ones. USB3.0 is LIGHTYEARS faster than USB 2.0. I got about 5 flash drives here, and have owned well over 10. Never would I buy USB2.0 again. It's not 1985....

My bad should have read it more closely , not sure why they thought it was a good idea to call them both the same name 'PNY Attache 4'

Still a great deal if you don't need super fast speeds

No, the USB3.0 bus is faster, that doesn't mean flash drives are, the flash memory decides the speed and most is slow, they rely on fools like you seeing the USB3.0 logo and incorrectly assuming it is fast, it isn't, a lot of them still use budget slow flash memory.

Like I said, you have a faulty or counterfeit drive.

This is old technology. It's like buying a black & white TV - it shows a picture but it isn't a sensible choice.

No...many USB3 drives over 32Gb implement slow memory and a small buffer. Because of the speed of USB3 this fills up fast. Thus why there are so many complaints (especially with Win 10) when trying to transfer lots of data in one the speed goes up to full for a few seconds then crashes to zero. It can take hours to fill up a 128Gb drive. I speak from experience having tried 3 different ones, albeit cheaper, but branded (PNY, Sandisk & Lexar) ones.

Before you tell me I have faulty drivers, it works fine with a 128Gb micro SD in a USB3 reader, also with 32Gb and 16Gb usb3 drives. This issue just seems to affect the 64Gb and 128Gb drives I've bought.

My personal conslusion, is if you want a big drive then either spend a lot extra for a decent top of teh range one, or save a few quid and go for USB2.

I guess he (or she) didn't see the rule, that ones opinions only count if one has been a member for a long time and posted X number of deals
This is getting very silly. This a good deal for a 128Gb/USB2.0 drive. A 128Gb/USB3.0 drive is a different product and unless it costs the same/less its irrelevant to people who can only support 2.0 or just want the best storage/buck.

That's why this is ideal for storing music on a RPI server. The only relevant factor is the read speed and as long as that exceeds your MP3 (or whatever) bandwidth requirement.

Obsolete? I'm guessing there are still more USB2 ports being manufactured today than 3.0. Don't listen to people who would argue a Bugatti Veyron is a better deal for going high street shopping 'cos it can go faster than a Nissan Micra

That's pretty funny, but all rather incorrect.
Perfect for regular file back up on win 10 'file history'...leave it plugged in esp if you have 128 GB SSD...

In your humble opinion sir.

The only thing that is speculation is my final conclusion (thus why I stated "personal conclusion" and my first assumption that it affects larger drives only. Other than that I make it pretty clear that this is my personal experience....perhaps you know my personal experience better than me?

Do some research and you will see that I am not alone.

It's not opinion, it''s fact. Look at the benchmarks and all the comparative tests. The USB 3.0 flash drives are much, much faster. Hardy surprising when the interface had 10x higher bandwidth.

USB 2.0 is from the 1980s.

Thanks for the advice Pavel..I see what you mean, his latest response clearly shows that he has no idea what I'm talking about. Seems to think speed is based upon interface only.../sigh
