It appears these drives have EXTREMELY slow write speeds. How low? So low that SanDisk doesn't disclose them on their site:
SlowDisk

They don't even mention the write speeds in their overview. Once you go to specs you see this:
Transfer speeds up to 100MB/s, write speeds lower2

Then when you follow the "2" note it still just says:
write speed lower and varies by capacity.

Very pathetic.

I bought one last time they were on sale. They are indeed very slow with writes. I'm using mine to permanently store MP3s, and only occasionally update it to write additional files. So, I don't mind so much. Good price for the capacity.

I would NOT want to to use this if I were writing large files to it on a consistent basis.

Sounds like they just painted the connector blue & called it USB3.

I'm totally stealing that joke. Their quality has been really disappointing as of late.
