These were very fast when they were a newer product 5+ years ago, and then the later versions were significantly slower (saw others report it and then experienced it myself). They're also the only flash drives that have died on me (had 2 of the 128GB fail).

I'll still take it any day over a similarly priced Sandisk (non Ultra), as the Sandisks are so awfully slow.

Probably because of the shift from MLC to TLC because it's cheaper. I have a flash drive from several years ago that is actually SLC, albeit in a small capacity. This is one of the cases where older is actually better.
