The storage drives are eligible for a free 8x8 Shutterfly Photo Book worth $30(Pay only Shipping & Tax to shutterfly) .


GET IT AT YOUR OWN RISK, GOT 1 in Aug from Amazon, used for few months start to overheat and then reject, TRY to RMA with Sandisk a week ago and they no longer has the same drive in stock. Offered me 2 x 64GB or 1 x 128GB (regular model not the fit model) If you plan to use it extensively with large files you should really think twice before getting it!!!

i got a woman with the same problem...
1. Best price ever on the 128GB Fit. According to the Camel, average price has been $38 lately. Previous low was $30.

2. Yes it gets hot (I have the 64GB). But that's mostly during writes. It only heats up a little from reads. So if you plan to constantly write stuff to it (like Time Machine backups), then no it's probably not the best flash drive to get. If you plan to write a bunch of stuff to it once, then just read it, it'll do just fine. e.g. If you've got a laptop with only a 128GB SSD and you want to add more storage, you can dump your music and movie collection onto this flash drive and leave it plugged in. It'll get hot during the data dump, but not from playback. All flash memory gets hot, it's mostly a matter of isolating the flash so you can't feel the heat, or slowing it down so the heat doesn't build up as quickly. But on something this small and this fast, it's unavoidable.

3. Sandisk is just about the only USB flash drive manufacturer who actually makes drives with decent all-around speeds. Most people focus on the sequential read/write speeds, but that only applies when you're copying large files like movies. Smaller files like music and backups are more accurately reflected in the 512k speeds. And regular computer files like word documents and system/game files rely more on the 4k speeds. Most flash drives with good sequential speeds have poor to very poor 4k speeds (like less than 1 MB/s) - that's what makes them take 10 hours to copy your MP3 collection. It's rare to find a Sandisk drive which gets less than 1 MB/s 4k speeds. An Amazon review has the speeds for the 32GB version of this drive - 148 MB/s seq, 115 MB/s 512k, 5 MB/s 4k reads; 39 MB/s seq, 1.5 MB/s 512k, 2 MB/s 4k writes. While not stellar, those are very good results. I installed games onto it and played off of it - pretty much the same speed as a HDD.

4. You'll have a very hard time finding a similar-performing flash drive at this price, if not impossible. The 128GB PNY Turbo the poster above listed only gets 0.075 MB/s 4k write speeds - it'll take 4 hours to copy a 1 GB folder of small office documents, while the Fit will churn through it in 8 minutes. The Lexar S25 128GB that was posted gets 120 MB/s seq read, 72 MB/s seq write. But only 7 MB/s 512k read, 0.8 MB/s 512k write. And 6 MB/s 4k read, 0.7 MB/s 4k write. The Fit is a much better drive than either of them.

5. If you want the best performance in a cheap usb flash drive, wait for a deal on the Sandisk Extreme (regular or pro) 64GB or larger. That drive is incredible - basically acts like a low-end SSD with ~10 MB/s 4k speeds (SSDs hit about 30-70 MB/s, HDDs about 1 MB/s) and over 200 MB/s sequential speeds. The only faster USB flash drives are ones which incorporate SSD controllers in them.

I would buy the Fit, heat issue and all, if I didn't already have the 64GB.

This is a nice drive. I wish it came with some sort of keyring though.

Possible this gets cheaper during BF 70% off sale? Looking for a low profile flash drive to hold music for my car.

You can always get the Flair version. Looks like the space might be enough for a keyring.

I owned the fit. It overheats. If you like your USB drives hot enough to burn you, this is the one to get.

This. It's a great drive, from a functionality standpoint, but it's ridiculously hot after you've been hitting it hard and then eject it. laugh out loud

I've been on the fence about the the fit for months; biggest reason being the heat issues. I don't have as much of a problem with the hot-to-the-touch problem as much as I do the shuts-down-during-write-of-4GB+file-due-to-heat problem. It seems like the issue is here to stay.

Any other USB3.0 drives in a similar form factor out there that are actually good?

I have the heating issue everyone else has, but I think it's still a great drive. I have not seen the problem of the unit shutting done on use from the heat issue and I have copied over mp4 files totalling over 90 Gb.

I like the drive bc I use it in wireless reader and it's great to not have a big thing sticking out of side of the units.

I don't know of any high rate, high volume unit that doesn't heat up. Only unit I see not heating up on at least some part of it, is the so called usb2/usb3, which I find to be rather slow.

I think the heat issue will be with us for a while as these things get faster. Think about how hot your laptop gets during high usage times, the heat coming out of the side port.

I bought one of these a month ago and it couldn't even copy 1 GB onto it before it would spontaneously unmount and remount itself in both my PC and Mac Mini. I had no idea why it kept failing until I pulled it out and it literally burned my finger and thumb. Never again.
