USB 2.0 in this day and age? Price seems crazy in that case and not the good kind of crazy. It's true cheap 3.0 flash drives won't have significantly better write performance but the read performance will still be there while 2.0 drives are severely limited for reads as well, by 2.0 bandwidth limits.

Depends what you use it for. I use these for making different os boot drives such as linux and windows. Or just disposable ones to carry while travelling with copies of passports and tickets just in case phone gets lost or the actual documents.

Thanks for posting deal and effort. Lexar makes crap products, drives fail and are slow and they do not honor warranties.

Hi there,

Yeah, I got a 128GB USB Lexar, barely used it for backup purposes. Uploaded some files into it and it died... Nope, Sandisk for me from Costco. :D

Umm, what? USB 2 is the same bandwidth whether reading or writing. It's the flash technology on the cheap drives that produces slow writes but faster reads and there's very little reason to think a cheap USB 3 flash drive is going to use any better flash than the USB 2 version would. To know if a cheap drive is fast enough to meet your needs you need to see its actual read/write performance specs and not its USB version. That said, you'll max out at about 28MB/s for any USB 2 drive, so if that's already too low then USB 3 is your only option. Still have to check the read/write specs though.
