[Amazon.ca] Silicon Power 2 Pack 128GB USB 3.0 USB Flash Drive $29.99

Drop from about $70 to $29.99 (57% off). All time low as shown by 3 camel.

This USB 3.0 Flash Drive is backward-compatible, so you can plug it into any USB 2.0 or 3.0 port.

Per GB price seems good but not familiar with Silicone Power. Thoughts or experience with the brand?

More importantly, is it actually capable of max speed usb 3.0

No point having 128gb capacity if it takes you 5 years to copy things onto it. That's the problem with cheap USB drives with unknown quality

Canada Computers has a Team 128GB, singular, $12. I'm getting 150 reads/120 writes on them, so "decent", at least for the price.

Had to send it back as I was shipped only one key instead of two. Amazon wanted to give me a 25% discount to fix the mistake! lol.

Been around for years now, similar to Adata in my experience, decent budget brand.

Read the reviews for this first though, looks very slow.

I bought 2 of those and had to return them both within two weeks because they both started to write really really slow and then would not be recognized by laptop. I would not buy again

I have SP micro SD cards. They are garbage. They test and format fine but 100% of the time data get corrupted and cannot be read. They are slow to write. Tried in the computers and phones with always failed result.

They were super cheap and good deal.Face With Rolling Eyes

I sent them in for replacement under warranty.

People seem to hate my USB key suggestion but the solution is rock solid and possibly the fastest 'standard form factor' USB key Type A option outside of the ultra-expensive Sandisk Extreme Pro USBs that cap out at 256GB.

These dinosaur USBs are throwaways by comparison.

Sometimes good value is good value and doesn't require much if any dollar discount, discounts can be invented, where the value proposition may nonetheless be good or bad.
