Looking at the other SanDisk outlet deals posted and saw this. SKU is not very friendly but basing by the look and by the specification I deducted that this is highly likely to be the very renowned CZ80 model which has very high performance. Although only 32 GB it is very useful for people storing their projects and very core files. I got back into the IT field and needed a lot of USB drives for boot OSs.

I believe that is the 16 GB version but glad you checked. $34.21 and backordered for the 32 GB version at Amazon.

I don't know what this drive's exact specs are, but the Wirecutter's "pick" is a 64GB drive and you can't compare flash memory devices across the board, especially where write speeds are concerned, which for most purposes are more important than read speed. (Very few uses require particularly fast read speeds.) And while this is a very slight oversimplification, smaller drives are all but invariably slower than their larger counterparts in the same line. Since that Wirecutter article doesn't discuss 32GB drives at all, it's basically irrelevant.

My bad. I got the 64GB for $26.45 so when I check the amazon I thought that price was for 32GB without double checking the capacity.
My apologies.

Appreciate the input. I know this is typically true but the research I've done put the 32 GB and 64 GB pretty close to the same performance. I am unsure about the 16 GB. One reviewer on Amazon put the 32 GB using default CrystalDiskMark setting gave seqRead: 256.8Mb/s and seqWrite: 103.9Mb/s. I think it's pretty impressive. If you need bigger drive though the newer Go and Pro models are worth it. Just thought this was still pretty good, hard to find, and newer drives aren't offered in 32 GB.

Do you mean this one? SanDisk Extreme 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive (SDCZ80-032G-GAM46) [amazon.com] That would be great performance, but it's not clear to me it's exactly the same model? The SD part numbers are different, but they play so many games with their model numbers it can be really hard to keep track of which are or might be different "under the hood" and which are just different retail/bulk packages...Frown

Close. I suspect it's the CZ80-032G-G46 and not GAM46. Not that I know what the exact differences are but the G46 page has read speeds up to 190 MBps (which is in the specs of this deal) and the GAM46 says up to 245 MBps. I am suppose to to have them delivered today and will update with the model and my reported specs. Not that it matters too much as this thread is buried ha.

All it says is SDCZ80-032G on the drives themselves without any retail packaging. 205.4 MBps seq read and 101.9 MBps seq write using CDMark.

Hmmm... But the CZ80-032G-G46 on Amazon (at least on this page? [amazon.com]) says USB 3.1 on the case, while this "SDCZ80-032G" appears to have "3.0" on the case, in red rather than white lettering, too, and the product description mentions only 3.0 as the highest revision it's designed for. (This is one the things I really hate about Sandisk. I obviously don't know what their corporate reasoning for the milion-and-one model numbers is, but it's incredibly annoying...)

Well, in any event, "benchmarks tell no lies"...Wink And on a positive note, this thread's "premature" burial probably contributed to the drive still being in-stocklaugh out loud, so given that excellent write speed, I'm seriously considering it... Thanks for the report.
