Anyone know if this would do well in my Samsung s20 ultra? Bought one off ebay and lost all my data on it as apparently the read/write speed wasn't great. It was a SanDisk one but don't think it was legit to be honest :/
These are absolutely fantastic, transfer speeds blow any regular flash drive out of the water :D
Got one of these very fast
This seems expensive compared to an M.2 SSD in a USB enclosure? I'm guessing the technology in the Extreme Pro is similar to an SSD anyway with a proper high-speed controller (as opposed to a basic flash drive and memory chip).
"solid state" ...... Phew! I thought this came with a spinny disk for a moment there....
Are these the ones that slow down after so many writes?
Mine's arrived. It seems genuine and as advertised. Write speed is fast enough for 4k video in the GoPro hero 9 at least. Have only put 80GB on it so far (written and read). Haven't tested at full capacity, but I'm pretty confident it's fine.
Can anyone say more about this? Anyone received the cards and are they genuine?
Not sure what picstop are like now, but they were selling fake ad cards previously.
Is it compatible with Nintendo switch?
Thanks, I'll bite at £28.38. Couldn't find anything else I needed to bring it up to the free shipping limit.

Used these for years, leave them in routers, TVs and kids laptops to supplement internal storage, the trick is to keep them away from fan exhausts or where most heat in generated.
Can anyone recommend any other low profile usb drives?
You could fry a egg on these things, it’s crazy how hot they get USB no longer comes with a cap. Thats cause it’s melted off
Depends on use, I had a 32GB one of these for use in the car. They run very very hot and if you are removing and reinserting them a lot, this causes the connections to break. I had one that lasted a week, the replacement maybe lasted a couple of months. When I got the third replacement, I gave up using it in the car and I have it for occasional use elsewhere. I'd say it it's going in something to stay there most of the time, good, if you actually want to use it as a removable drive, get something bigger and more robust that won't have so many thermal issues.
Having had several cheaper bins over the years I eventually splashed out and treated myself to these: https://www.nikon.co.uk/en_GB/product/sport-optics/binoculars/monarch/monarch-5-8x42 They seemed to be the ones that were being recommended on various forums although I'm just using them for garden birds and casual astronomy. They are relatively light, have great optics and very well built. Of course at 4 times the cost they should be! I just wished I'd saved up and bought them many years ago...
What do you want to use them for? I presume birding as they are 8x42, in which case you will get a much better idea from a birding forum than here...
I got Olympus DPS I 10x50 (£59) and DPS 8x42 (£49) from Argos and the optics are very sharp, bright and clear. There are dozens of binoculars with higher magnification and corresponding pricing but I am yet to come across the ones close to DPS I in terms image clarity and sheer pleasure of using them. I bought a couple of binos based on very positive reviews but I was disappointed. As mentioned above you need to see and test them to make sure they are exactly what you wanted. I had some cheap roof prism binos and found them to be really poor optically. I would always recommend BAK-4 porro prisms unless you really need something small then roof prism could be an option. Or best of both - inverted porro prisms. Pricewise it can be hit or miss, sometimes you pay cheaply and get excellent binos or pay a lot for binoculars which turn out to be average at best. Hope you will find something great for sensible money. Good luck!
Nice bins, but i prefer monoculars for being half the price and twice as portable.
Cheers mate, really appreciate the time, yeah will head to my local store when things start to open up again. Have a good one.

Thanks op, needed a endurance SD card so bought a few memory sticks too.
Hot from me. I would have gone for it if they had a 256gb endurance card though for a dashcam (not sure how good the non endurance ones are for dashcams (hoping to get a 4k front cam with HD cam for the rear).
EASTER21 also works (y) Was actually going to post this, but too late. You snooze you lose
