Decent price. Walmart had the 256gb version of this drive for ~ $19 as of last week.

But what I want are deals on USB-C drives! Or drives with type A and type C connectors!

I think we're seeing good prices on this type because the market is moving on to type C and/or lightning.

I have a bunch of the adapters. They're just pain to take on and off. I think my biggest issue though, is they make the drive stick out from the port, which gives it leverage, and that means it's easy to damage the USB-C port with an accidental bump.

I've effectively destroyed micro USB tablets/phones by repeatedly using adapters with flash drives. Yes I was delicate. But multiple uses per day almost everyday will do it. And once the port housing starts to flex it becomes difficult to impossible to charge.

USB-C ports were designed to have a much longer lifespan. I've heard a quality build should stand up to 10,000 plugs, compared to 1,000-2,000 plugs for micro USB. But those are ideal numbers. I haven't been using them long enough to judge. I do know the USB-C port on my 3 year old Motorola phone recently started "feeling" weird. It still works, but seems like the devices/cables don't go all the way in anymore. And sometimes it takes a few tries to get it charging or recognize the drive/computer. Could be because I've also been swapping files on/off it a lot lately using a USB-C adapter.

...

I know what you mean! As such, you may actually want a flexible adapter with a short cable - this way there is less leverage available. Like these:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/194478787279
https://www.ebay.com/itm/194404831417

I've used the one with a cable a few times for a micro USB - never had any issues. My bigger problem was that Android kept corrupting the filesystem on my USB sticks, then Windows complains that the file system needs checking. One such check totally destroyed the contents of an SD card.

Good idea for home/desk. Just hard to use on the go. And these adapters give my phone/tablet an awkward "hung" look. Gotten some weird glances at coffee shops, tech conferences when I use this type of adapter.

For SD cards see if you can use the special file system only for SD cards, I think it's UDF, that should help with your corruption issue. I've had trouble using exFat/NTFS or ext4 on an SD card in the past. The solution was initializing the card using Android instead of trying to format it via Windows/Linux. In the past the latter disk utilities didn't support reformatting an SD card to UDF.

Of course this doesn't apply flash drives, only SD cards.
