Damn that's good. Haven't seen reviews yet though...

Only issues seen:
- Read/Write speeds not as advertised (but you can test them when you get it I suppose).
-Cheap build quality.

Probably just bad luck but I had two Silicon Power sticks that just died for no apparent reason with a couple of weeks of purchase. They started by being very fussy about which computers would read them (as reviews had said) and eventually nothing would access them (everything unknown device). I had the keyloop design ones which was a shame as it was a nice design. I generally only pay for branded sticks now like Kingston, Sandisk, Lexar or Corsair - just seems like a safer long term bet.

Hmm, I think this USB is good for backups possibly as it is £10 off the price for 64GB of other 64Gb USB's so I'm not going to fully rely on it but maybe as a backup for the most important data - whilst I have 2 32GB Sandisk drives.

I was only using it to move films and media between computers not even as a backup but it became increasingly annoying when it wouldn’t read and then totally stopped. It’s OOS at listed price anyway now. I just don’t have a lot of faith in this brand and wouldn’t waste my energy for a few quid saving over another brand - personally anyway. I mean, Sandisk may not be perfect but they know their memory and do build more than USB flash drives (decent SSDs for example).

It's coming tomorrow so I'll see how it goes. If not then it's super easily to return it w/ Amazon anyway so no harm done as such.


Maybe do a stress test on it if those exist?

h2testw is a good thing to use for any initial issues. If that fails get it returned. Sadly it won't give any idea of reliability.

Alright. I'll give it a go when possible.

That’s my go to program and also the problem you highlighted. These are real sticks so they will pass H2testw, or at least should (if the constant read write isn’t what kills it). H2testw is better for fakes, like the **** 512GB CeX sells for £30 which every single time has been fake, unsurprisingly (8GB real size) - bought to prove a point, and despite telling them, they’re still selling them without a care.
This any good @plewis00@rev6 ?

Write is a bit in the low side but that read is impressive. Great for £7!

Shows that the stick is fine right now and is legitimate capacity (which was expected) but doesn’t tell anything about durability. Speeds look fine to me, but I have slower sticks than this and am not bothered by them. For £7 just enjoy it I guess!

Don’t suppose you still have a spare going? I’d be very happy to take you up on the offer if so, thanks!
