out of stock

Would have been perfect. Out of stock on the website op. Great deal though.

OOS now, but note that the $10 discount is "$10 manufacturer’s discount is valid 8/4/16 through 8/28/16. While supplies last." so there's potential for it to be back I guess.

=aw

does anyone know the model#? it's not on the specs page

Not totally dead. Saw this deal in store, there were plenty of them on the shelf. Model CZ600.

There a few of them in Fremont, CA store. I just bought one and tested it by copying a 2GB video mp4 file to and from it. The writing speed was from 27 to 32 MB/s and the reading speed was from 70 to 120MB/s. That is to say, the write speed is very slow for a USB 3.0 drive and the reading speed is O.K. for most applications. Note: the Sandisk Extreme USB 3.0 drive has 86 to 88MB/s of writing speed.

It's in stock online again, I ordered 2 last night for $30@ (+VT tax on $40, which just seems wrong to me). One person has rated it 1/5*, but with no review I'm inclined to ignore it.

Thanks OP!

Look at the write speed. only 4MB/s.

I bought one of these a month ago for $45 from Office Depot, thinking it was a decent deal. Yes, it works, but the write speed is atrocious, much slower than my old WD USB 2.0 external hard drive.
 

clearly this is one way where USB 3.0 is a marketing gimmick and nothing technically relevant to the functionality of this device.

Got an email from Costco today (Nov 4) saying that the description was wrong on the website (the Sandisk device is Cruzer Glide not Ultra, 90MB/s read not 100MB/s, 2yr warranty not 5yr). And that they're crediting $5 per unit back on the original credit card.

Hasn't shown up on my statement yet (didn't expect it to) but if you bought this and don't get the email you may want to call them.

Nick construction and speed but a little slow.
