Thanks for the comments. I'll just close the loop on some and then let this matter rest. > What a strange first post by a user that just signed up today! > I was hinting more at this post possibly being self-promotion rather it just being a not great deal. I am not affliated with Integral or Stuff-uk. I'm just a brand new customer of Stuff-uk who bulk purchased a bunch of USB flash drives. Proof - https://postimg.cc/G9zFSkhj I mainly just lurk on this site and created an account since I found a deal which may help someone else's niche requirement in the future. My niche requirement was that I have a lot of Linux ISOs / Windows ISOs / Rescue CDs and various installation media for things like Proxmox / pfSense / bios upgrades / system firware upgrades etc. which require a USB drive to boot off. I am aware of and have used software like YUMI Multiboot USB creator / Easy2boot / MultibootUSB / XBoot / Sardu and Ventoy on large capacity USB drives to consolidate all the installation media but always encountered compatibility issues with old BIOSes / buggy UEFI firmware and broken (hard coded) installation software which prevents me using high capacity USB drives or portable hard drives.
Thanks for taking the time to share and post your first deal with us @thingy :)

Just saying.... everyone seems bit harsh on a first poster.... yes deal not great on a storage front. I can see the value if you need lots of usb os builds and want to have multiple sticks to run on. So get the idea. Though having this need for usb boot drives in volume seems extremely niche! Don't be put of by the somewhat negative comments. All deals are worth posting...usually...
If you really need several flash drives, it may be an ok deal. But as an example, if you buy 3 of these and you pay postage only once, it will cost you £10 for 48GB. You can purchase a 128GB flash drive for £10, so to me this is OK if you really need a few devices, otherwise £ per GB is better value to get one flash drive higher capacity. Never mind Integral may be an OK brand, but not a great one and the read/write speed is not great.
