SanDisk 128GB uSD for $28

 

SanDisk Cruzer 128GB USB $28

 

Also available on TheMarket at those prices.  If you've still got your $20 sign-up discount code that came from Vodafone that's a lot of removable storage for $36.

Also, if you got the Vodafone TheMarket club you save $6 shipping.

Cheers for that! Picked up one of the Cruzer's and a new charger cable for the misses using the VF membership offer.

What kind of speed do these devices have?  I have bought a cheap drive in the past and it was really slow.

 

 

 

Edit:  should check specs on sandisk site, right.

I bought one of the USB sticks and although I haven’t measured the speed it seemed quick when I copied some video files to it

WD/Sandisk site links for these: Stick / SD card.

That's a fair question. Especially for the stick, as WD/Sandisk don't list any specs on their website/store or in the rather pathetic "data sheet". Given that they do list (read) speeds for some devices, I would presume that these ones aren't going to be especially good, just "faster than [...] a USB 2.0 drive". Even for the SD card, only an expected read speed is listed on the WD/Sandisk website/store page.

Alternatively, you can get the 64gb version from Harvey Norman for $15. though it says speeds up to 80MB/s only

Some of the faster USB keys can overheat when used over prolonged periods as they were only designed for plug in and out copy operations. Aluminium exteriors should dissipate heat better than plastic and plugging into a USB1 or 2 port instead of 3 when plugging in over a prolonged period might help.

 

 

 

I've long thought full sized camera cards intended for professional photography and video should be more reliable on average because they have to be.

Thanks for that , I purchased a couple. Needed as my "lifetime" backup/archive provider Zoolz decided that a lifetime lasts a few years and ends mid October.

 

So I need to retrieve everything and store the files (mainly pictures) until I can upload to a new cloud provider.

Cheap ones tend to be able to read really fast, but are slow to write to.
This makes it fine for storage when you load some files on and watch later for example, but not good for say GoPro etc where large video needs to be written consistently etc
