Note: Micron sold Lexar business (and brand) in 2017, so quality may not be the same as you remember (for good or bad).
With ANY flash drive the most important thing is to FILL IT TO THE MAXIMUM immediately and then verify contents (if no error during write). This tests the full capacity of the drive as well as the basic overprovisioning (if any) of a completely full disk... I.E. At least you will know you have a full 128gb of good cells to start with.
This also tests the thermal throttling to ensure the drive properly throttles to avoid catastrophic data loss. (Sometimes having it slow down is a good thing,lol)
By doing this immediately, you are inside the return period as the warranties on most usb drives are relatively useless.
