@amk-aka-Phantom, I could not agree with you more. There's nothing more satisfying then watching one friend copy a file on a 2.0 flash drive for 20 minutes, and then doing it after them as they watch in less than 20 seconds. I can't say much about the flash drives in this article speed wise, but I can say that the outside casing is literally IDENTICAL to the flash drive that I have, and I can attest to the sturdiness of the drive against wear and tear. I've had this for over a year and I use it frequently. I would certainly be interested in this for the speed, but since the one I have is already fast enough for my needs, I'll skip purchasing this one. To anyone who doesn't have a 128GB+ 3.0 flash drive, get one ASAP. It'll last, and you'll be very pleased with it.
