I had the extreme USB 3.0 32GB, it failed and so did a similar looking one, but the slightly shorter and curved versions (not as fast) have kept going. I never got any kind of warranty claim. I was reading the Extreme pro 128GB on amazon and the first review says the drive doesn't have trim and the work around is a program for wiping freespace/the drive to enable its former performance. Does this have the trim command? I used to get around 212-190 read and 80-90 write with the extreme USB 3.0. Really crappy naming policy.
Any decent ones a little smaller? Need one for my Xbox One X but one that don’t stick out very far!
This is a better buy. Purchased one this week and verified I was getting 400MB/s read and and around 90MB/s write. ARCANITE 128GB USB 3.1 Flash Drive, Optimal read speeds up to 400 MB/s. amazon.co.uk/dp/…3G/
I have the Extreme USB 3.0 64GB, still going after years. Says 6.26TB been written to it, been putting it through the wringer!

Well I recently got the Extreme Pro 256GB and did did say TRIM wasn't enabled, but just now I put it in and it's saying it's enabled and supported. It's going back though because it has 4 bad sectors see here40852491-j4nVc.jpg
The temp never changed from 8c, but temperatures show 33c max temp which may be accurate as it never seemed to get that hot during testing but I did put a fan on it sometimes! The power on time and estimated remaining lifetime had values when I first used it, but after a while went to Unknown, so don't know why that is.
Bought this on Wednesday from amazon.de for £40. Gutted.

Great price.

Where did you buy it from please, & were you able to get a replacement/refund? As 3 months should be well within the 'lifetime' warranty!

Yeah, I'm applying for replacement via the RMA form online. It was a replacement itself for an Ultra Fit which also died from nothing in particular, can't remember where, maybe Amazon.

As I said its the curved models which have not died on me, just they are quite slow single digits write, read isn't a prob 100MB/s.

If you bought it from Amazon, it would be easier & probably much faster to get them to refund/replace under warranty..You need to get on Amazon online CS chat (via this link: amazon.co.uk/gp/…s/) & let them know.

Initially, they'll probably offer a refund as gift balance, but you're well within your rights to get a refund to your payment card if you prefer. If you're not aware, it's your rights as a customer (under the CRA 2015 which.co.uk/con…act) to approach the retailer for this kind of warranty claim. Once they resolve it, you should cancel your RMA request with SanDisk.

I've been shopping online for 20 years & have found Amazon's CS exemplary with this kind of thing (compared to any other company or manufacturer).

I use that on one of my machines. Should really run some tests on all of my removable flash drives after you posted above mentioning bad sectors on one of yours.
