The Coronavirus pandemic might actually be over by the time your data has copied onto it

1GB will take 4 mins or so. If people can't get a dedicated PC for that kind of thing why are they messing about with 4K or buying cheap memory sticks? If they care about quality they'll have the right tools for the job, not try and move pointless 4K movies around on a slow stick and then complain. External HDD is obviously quicker given sequential access.

How on earth did this get hot?


Because it's £8 for a 128GB branded memory stick... guess what, you buy a cheap stick, there will be compromises - either speed, value or capacity (pick two).

Because it's cheap branded storage. If you're moving a 4K movie buy a fast memory stick for more money (in fact most people I know who spend their time faffing about with 4K use a Plex server over gigabit Ethernet not a memory stick)... most people just move 720/1080p films at under 2GB, takes a few minutes and most people don't fill the entire stick in one go.

Good deal but slow speeds!

Good deal but slow speeds!

Cheers, still worth it for the price
That is glacially slow, I would avoid it. Well done on finding the deal though
If it was only USB 3
The Coronavirus pandemic might actually be over by the time your data has copied onto it
Even for a USB 2.0 USB stick this is slow. Very limited use cases, and/or would require immense patience.

Assuming you wanted to fill this up with data, and got the advertised 4MB/s then it'd take over 9 hours! haha!

I doubt you can find 128GB much cheaper, but you won't want to use much of that capacity at those speeds.

That'll take over 9 hours at full speed to fill up!!!!

Anyone know if this works on a playstation classic with autobleem?

It's too slow, for best experience you need to have equivalent of sd class 10, this is on pair with class 4

Ive tried sd cards, micro sd cards, other 64gb usb's and 128gb usb's. Can't get anything to work other than my old 32gb pny usb. I've been looking for a 128gb usb 2.0 that works with autobleem
Not everyone would want to use a 128GB stick for 4K movies. some people might want to move smaller files onto the stick ,use the stick as a backup drive or just use it to play SD videos or 720p videos (if it takes a while to copy over you can leave the PC and do something else whilst its copying over).

Exactly - seems all the arguments about this stick are people who think you need to a) sit there and watch it while it copies and b) fill all 128GB in one sitting.
nice

Even so its ridiculously slow past the point of being an annoyance. Much faster sticks are available for just a few £ more which would work out much better in the long run even if the stick was just used for occasional archiving of data.

Wrong. You make the assumption that people value speed because you do yourself. If people wanted to pay more for a faster stick, they would. Or if they want speed over storage they can buy a very fast SanDisk Flair 32GB for a similar price.

A few quid more = 50% more money. I have 110GB music, what benefit do I get from archiving that faster when I’m going to leave it to copy anyway?
I bought one last time it was on offer, it's died already avaoid folks

Hop these on to your router( if you have one with USB) set your Pc laptop whatever to back up over night to them, cheap independent storage.

cheaper?? id rather add £6 and get 10x the advertised speed - get the philips one. just search here HUKD.
Good for use on a raspberry pi as archival storage. Read speeds should be sufficient to allow video playback without a problem, two of these and you have the same as a small hard drive.

Anything above 1080p and a high frame rate would struggle I think.

I'm sure people have their use cases for this but personally, my money would be going on a slightly more expensive stick that isn't restricted to a small number of uses.

Most are just driving 1080p screens from that config and can only do that if using Kodi via the HDMI port, this is the type of thing you would use for automated deep archive or moving data off overnight. I have OS archive images on a key that all happens at 4am as a cron job at a high niceness level and I am never aware of it generally. It definitely has uses in terms of automatically moving some archive types and symbolically linking them as an automated job.

So you'd rather pay almost double and get a faster stick! Tell us more!

If someone wants 128GB of storage for archival or because it cheap enough that they won't worry too much lending it out, you can't beat this price. Speed is not the defining factor for everyone - even if a stick is 10x faster, it's still not quick enough to watch it copy in real time.
Just be warned I have had 3 of these fail on me in the past. Never any other USB sticks

Yes, 10x the speed for 1.8x the price. Yes this have its uses but are very limited. 6min copy vs 60 minutes. Huge difference. Cheap though.
