128GB 3.0 Flash Drive, please help me find one that actually works

I bought that PNY Turbo 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive - P-FD128TBOP-GE which was for $20 from Staples. It's basically is junk, lagged my computer, my wireless mouse and keyboard stopped working and the computer basically froze.

Are there any respectable 128GB 3.0 Flash Drive in the $30 or less price range?

I have that same drive, and have used it for nearly a year with no issues.

Maybe the problem is with your computer? Seems like a lot of incidentals that typically have nothing to do with a bad drive.

I just tried it on my laptop with windows 10 and it would only work in the USB 2.0 port none of the 3.0 ports. I even called PNY customer service and they said this flash drive is having issues and to return it that I probably got a bad one so I returned it and got the SanDisk 128 for 30 bucks. If I go home and it doesn't work at my PC then I'll know for sure that is my computer and not the flash drive.
