Look how far we have come
I was poking around on Amazon the other day and found this. It’s a 256 GB flash drive for just under £11.
So I bought two.
After opening the package and holding it for the first time, my immediate impression was, “Wow. This is solid.” In other words, it doesn’t feel cheap at all.

i bought a “sony” one from ebay a few years back, i’ve still yet to fill it.
i test before i trust with data, and test procedure (writes till full) was eventually stopped days later (when i remembered) having written thousands of times listed capacity. needless to say almost no data verified valid (first few gb only). fsck was clean, regardless i re-partioned, re-did testing and same result. hope you have better luck. ps: mine was a thing of beauty, still best usb-drive i’ve seen, but useless for intended purpose.

it this price, it might be counterfeit chips – or rather slow I/O.
