SanDisk 256GB Ultra Fit USB 3.1 Flash Drive - SDCZ430-256G-G46 - 256GB for only $18.91. sold and shipped by Amazon. if you do not see Amazon as seller check under "Other sellers" and choose Amazon.
I have had a 128GB one for almost 2 years always plugged into my work laptop and it's been holding up like a champ despite all the rough handling and abuse. I wanted more storage and stumbled upon this at a great price. The form factor is very small and makes it super portable and probably easier to lose too!

Bummer it's only 130 as compared to the 400 rate Samsung 256gb sd at $25..
A lot of folks already know this, but some might not. For whatever reason SanDisk has never been able to figure out the heat dissipation issues on these tiny USB drives. They used to come in metal casing like... you know, a normal thumb drive... but they'd get so hot you couldn't touch them. That's why these are plastic, which doesn't transfer heat as well.

The problem is that the heat issues aren't just a comfort thing. An overheating USB will throttle speeds, and can damage equipment. Maybe they've fixed the throttling (or maybe not), but the old versions of these would drop to speeds well below USB 2 standards after a minute or two of being plugged in.

Why bother with all that? Samsung drives are the gold standard at this point, and aren't much more money.

I've picked up several of these in the 128gb variety for around $16 ea… So $18ish for the 256Gb version is a good deal! In for 1. Thanks!

Price went up to $26.99

SAMSUNG MUF-256AB/AM FIT Plus 256GB - 400MB/s USB 3.1 Flash Drive, Gunmetal Gray https://a.co/d/giK17xW

But they often go on sale for $24.99 and were $22.99 before that, so I'd wait for it to drop again if you aren't in need of one right this minute as these Sandisks have heat issues.
