YMMV, but there are many reviews from people complaining about overheating. I think the tech they are using for this model isn't quite good enough to handle those transfer speeds and that much storage in such a small space.

I don't it'll ever be there are these speeds. It's an enclosed can that itself is enclosed in the USB port. There's no way for it to shed heat easily.

I have got a lexar 128gb for 25$ the actual price is 33, I hope this will help you but amazon sometimes keep the discount price even after the stock goes out for few days, if you order it with that price they will send it to you, so even if it goes out of stock and you still interested on it make an order and they will send it to you ( it takes time, for me I think more than 2 days).

I got one during the last lightning deal. It's now labeled as the 'Old Version". Did the new version fix the overheating issues?

I think the overheating issues orbited around people doing large amounts of writing, while the drive was not nearly as hot while reading.

i constantly download large files and direct it to the usb. it does get hot at times but it wasnt to the point of melting or getting too hot to the touch.

Maybe it was lots of little files, I just remember a few people saying writes were much hotter than reads. Good to know what you found though.

I got the 128GB a while back, and one of the complains I have with mine is that the plastic top would come off of the metal part pretty easily. I have to pop it back on, and have to be a little more careful when pulling it out from the computer to prevent it from coming off. It does get warm or hot for me, but not terrible.

I have the 32GB version and it constantly disconnects when plugged into a USB 3.0 port on windows computers. Never have any issues on Macs or USB 2.0 ports. I'm not sure if I got a dud or if there's a larger issue .

Reading all those reviews has given me pause on buying this version...especially with the PNY one selling for 24.99.

I have the 32GB "old version" I intended to use for my FreeNAS boot device. Unfortunately there are issues with that model booting FreeNAS and some other distros after installation. It works super dandy for esxi though.

Hopefully the "new version" will allow booting of the aforementioned distros.

i use it as a main drive (gopro, lightroom, etc) since i'm limited in space with my 256ssd and it's held up just fine. And this is in constant use every day
