Huh.. the model number for this thumbdrive doesn't produce a whole lot of results..

One of them being the product write up that Woot! has for this item.

The one on Amazon is DSP64GB-001

This one Woot! is selling is RCDSW64GB-001

So.... I guess this is brand spankin' new?

So if a 64 gb flash drive 30 bucks can someone explain how a 128 gb SSD typically goes for over 125? I don't expect it to be exactly linear but come on.

I'd buy it if the cap were not totally detached. It would end up in Lost City. :/

I could literally put almost my entire music library on this. (70 gigs.) And far more portable than my 250 gig external drive.

PLUS a carabiner! WOW!

Pardon me, would you have any bags of crap?

Wouldn't be 64,000/ 3(mb)/ 60 seconds/60 minutes? That comes to just under 6 hours by my math. It's not fast by any stretch but it certainly isn't over seven hours.

New stuff is always expensive... as more companies produce it, they will be more competitive and it will eventually drive the price down.

That is inless someone produces something that is on par with SSD drives, or better.

It's because the stick is a crippled product with a slow USB front end instead of a fast disk controller. It would take over 6 HOURS to read or write the whole thing. I'm sure these things were a lot more expensive when they first came out.

That's the theoretical max speed before protocol overhead, pauses, etc... you won't actually get that much. I wouldn't be surprised at all if the full read/write time clocks in closer to 10 hours.

My Uncle-In-Law in Brazil just emailed this morning asking for a 64GB memory stick from America (technology products are way cheaper here). This is fate. In for one!

Pluses. It's 64 GB for less than $30 dollars.

Minuses, it's Centon.

I'll let you know when I get a decent Centon product, which isn't likely, since I stopped buying them in BushII's first term.

$20 less than the essentially same Centon sport stick I Wooted in September. (I don't think that one had the keychain bit.) The caps that don't have anywhere to go when the stick's in use *are* a bit of a drawback, but I think it's now a great price for the storage size.

There was an unfortunate bug of them sometimes showing up as a write-only volume. It happened briefly to me so I googled and found it was not an uncommon problem. The web said the only solution was to return to manufacturer... but I found it just inexplicably went away as randomly as it arrived.

My old COBOL programs were on 8" floppys. At least I never used punch cards - LOL!


Now I have to decide if I really need 3, hmmm ...

Waterproof to 1.8M means toilet or bathtub. That is about it. Do not even take it poolside.

In for two cuz three is just pushing my budget too hard, and mom can woot her own. (Might share one with my roomie though.)

64GB for ~35$ is just too sexy to pass up, no matter the write speed. For most users, I would imagine that write speed is not the most crucially relevant factor -- as long as the thing works consistently.

As for the cap getting lost, well, a long time ago I wooted a Kingston 32GB drive (could probably trace when but don't care to do so right now) and I haven't lost that cap yet. My secret? Being careful. And also Scotch Tape.

That would cost 6¢ extra per drive, and 1.8m was the largest washing machine the designers could find anyway.

1.8 meters is nice, but I don't plan to drop it in a pool. I want to know how it's affected by soap and agitation because I think I washed my last one just a couple days ago.
Also - It might be slow to write, but for putting a whole bunch of music on it to play through the car/truck stereo, it's perfect. Once the music is on there, it will play and access just fine.

the controllers on an SSD are substantially faster than what you would find on a flash drive. you aren't only paying for the capacity itself, but for the brains behind the memory... take a look at the read/write speeds of a sata ssd vs a usb (2.0 no less) flash stick...
