Probably a slow'ish drive (for USB 3, compared to the faster Corsairs or Sandisk Extremes of the world), but it is pretty cheap for a 256GB flash drive.

Free shipping at $35.00 (you may need a filler).

Deal available online, not in store, from today to 11/26.

So is it slow?  FYI Sandisks are often slow.

Almost all USB 3.0 drives have a slow speed for small files, specifically write speed. They all tout 130 or 150 MB read speeds, but that's for large files like movies or other media.

It's not a substitute for something like an external SSD (read: $$$) which has a controller directing the NAND. That said, Amazon reviews on this one say it is MLC NAND according to Micron's response to a question - a lot of flash drives are TLC NAND (cheaper NAND).
