Have they figured out how to keep these cool enough that you can leave it in your router or computer 24x7 yet?

I checked the reviews and I didn't see any problem regards to PlayStation classic and this usb overheating. It should be fine because the PS classic isn't on all the time compared to a PC or a router.

I leave the 128gb on my computer 24/7 idle with no issues. Also not an issue while in use (gaming off of it). Will for sure have issues if you benchmark/stresstrest it or something for hours though

After spending around 4 hours transferring 220GB of files, the usb drive wasn't that hot. It work perfectly with the PlayStation Classic too.

What kind of write speed were you getting with it?

It's only like14.2MB per second no matter it's read or write. Too slow as usb 3.1 thumb drive. I think usb drive itself is throttling. It's base on the calculation of 220G over 4 hours transfer time.

Taichun is right. I was averaging around the speed Taichun mentioned above. I think the throttling was to prevent it from overheating because I was getting higher speed on different drives compared to the Sandisk.

It's not throttling...it's just slow to begin with. Sandisk is notorious for having the fastest drives on their top tier line and the slowest drives on the budget end. My slowest drives are all Sandisk, but at least they've been reliable.
