Can't find any direct reviews. Write speeds are going to be slow (~10MB/s), but read should be fine.

Seems to have some mixed reviews showing 40MB/s+ write speeds too. Well at that price for 2 and the capacity, it's hard to go wrong. Still will use my Sandisk Extremes, but these may make good high capacity spares.

Tempting, basically half price compared to Samsung 128gb drives which are some of the fastest I've found lately.

$13 for a usb c sata enclosure and an old 128gb SSD? i slapped a used ebay 3.4b sata SSD in mine. i get a consistent 80-90 MBs writes. i grabbed that same san disk 128 once or twice on sale as well.

I got a pair of these and I opened one to try it out. I had an issue after trying to copy some large files to it, it disconnected during the write. I checked some files on it and they were corrupt. So I reformatted via win 10 and it made it exFAT like usual but it failed to format, it disconnected itself again. So I got out a fat32 formatting tool and used 32k clusters and I no longer had issues. Very weird. As far as writes go I would get bursts of 125 MB/s followed by pauses and slower writes (like 4 KB/s-400KB/s) then it would repeat. Kind of like it filled up some internal cache then emptying it and repeating till it was done. Overall not a bad deal for 2 USB Sticks of this size. Still not sure why it was disconnecting when it was using exFAT which is the default in Win10.

I formatted one of mine with NTFS and copied a couple of media files, 500MB and 2GB and did a burst of 100+MB/sec and then did around 30MB/s for the rest of the write in chunks, write some, pause, write some, pause, etc... till it was done.
