Gotta love marketing gimmicks..
EDIT:
After reading the reviews....there is one by By Christopher Powell on amazon that put it to some sort of life test...

"#1 - Temperature proof??? The specs say that it will withstand -10C ~70C (14F to 158F) of non-operating temperature. 0C~60C (32F to 140F) operating. This seemed to be a safe first test. The easiest real world example would be to leave this in your car in the dead of winter, then take it into the house and use it. I used my Samsung refrigerator/freezer (coincidence) and dropped it into the Ice-tray for the day. I did not bag it since it’s supposed to be waterproof and real world is going to give you moisture in the cold.
Getting home I pulled the FIT out of the freezer, examined quickly for ice chips, and without any attempt at warming it up, jammed it to my laptop USB 3.0 port. The Fit drive came up immediately and I ran another flashbench… only a slight variation in speed, nothing to write home about. It works and it heated up to be warm to the touch on removal and examination.
Next test… heat. The real world example would be to leave this inside your car in the summer. I used a laser thermometer and a heat gun on low to heat up the Fit on my granite counter. I brought the temperature to 150F and then let it cool to 130F before inserting into the laptop. Again. the memory worked fine. The test passed, but at the higher temp, there was a slight off gassing of a plastic smell, without any visible melting."

Looks like Amazon dropped their price to match.

The page on Amazon shows several similar options for around the same price. What's special about this particular drive?

How reliable is this thing?

I have a PNY 128gb for my car music, and it tends to reset itself a lot. Would love to replace it with something smaller and more reliable.

The reviews so far say it is much better than a sandisk alternative. That it does not get very hot and if it does it might slow itself down for a sec and continue with no interruptions of the file transfer. Take one for the team and let us know how it works on your specific model car!Wink

You may want to switch to a usb 2.0 drive. All usb 3.0 sticks I have seen are very hot when inserted, let alone these tiny ones.

That's actually a really good call. The one I have in there is 3.0, and once the library updates, it shouldn't need to retrieve data quickly.. I may have to try a slower drive, hopefully they're cheaper. Thanks!

How does this compare to the Sandisk Ultra Fit? My SD model gets super hot.

price is not too bad, but flash memory only gets cheaper, will wait for $20!
