Seems good value for an archival USB 3.0 128GB flash drive. The 64GB version currently costs ~50% more!

Thanks for posting OP.

Cheap but not the quickest write speeds, 25mb per sec only just maxes out usb2 and this is usb3

One Amazon review includes a screenshot from CrystalDiskMark which shows write speeds of 37 - 50MB/sec.

Results from usb.benchmark don’t look impressive but remember this is a budget 128GB flash drive. As with most things, you get what you pay for and if you’re after better performance expect to pay significantly more.

Could take 2 hours to fill but read speeds decent enough
For all of you morning about write speeds who cares all your gonna store on it is backups of documents and photos so it doesn’t have to be blazing fast

After a recent external (90% laid dormant and not powered) hard drive failure that was 10 years old I'm wondering how long these flash drives will last in comparison? Are these really a safer bet?

No moving parts so should be longer. Out of interest which brand hard drive was it?
I believe its Seagate, could be wrong without looking again. I can't remember having usb sticks fail but I've had many smart media, sd/micro sd cards corrupt over the years. I mostly back up to cloud these days, obviously losing some picture quality but it would be nice to know I could return to 60gigs of data on one of these in 10 years time with no problems I guess
This will be well good for CDJs
Grabbed one. Not sure what for yet, but I'm sure I'll find a use. or it will live with the rest in a drawer.
Cheers, makes a change from the 32GB PNY ones I normally get

Debate is probably correct then

Just noticed it says data retention 10 years. It's sold out now anyway though.
