Hey there Centon, tell your friend Dyson to tell my friend KRUUPS I still want that toast.
The Centon 128GB USB 3.0 Pro is not a good deal at $39.99.
The PNY Turbo 128GB USB 3.0 is selling for $44.99 on Amazon. If you have Prime, it’s the same price as the Centon when you include shipping. Plus the PNY is faster and, in my opinion, is a better brand.
Thanks for the great info. Actually you don’t even need Prime to get free shipping.
Anyone contemplating buying just about any USB needs to learn about BadUSB firmware, for which there is presently no patch. I don’t intend to buy a new one until the manufacturers have a solution.
Yea, bought the first one that showed up here some time ago - http://www.woot.com/offers/centon-datapro-32gb-usb-flash-drive
Came DOA - and a LOT of them on that order did.
I have since not purchased any.
Will someone PLEASE buy these up so that Woot will no longer have to sell them?
The 64 GB version of this I bought a few months ago has since crapped the bed. Junk.
Throw another junk 64GB on the pile. I had one that lasted maybe 6 months.
Nice article, thanks for the new thing to worry about. LOL. However, it seems unless you are buying generic random drives that may be infected from the seller your main issue would be LENDING them to someone who was already infected and that, in turn, infects your drive. This also seems to be predicated on leaving the thumb drive in at boot so it can talk to your BIOS. I try to protect my machines as well as I can, but a lot of this is aimed at larger targets like businesses. I would wager criminals get much more use out of going after, say, Home Depot, Target or BOA than lil ole me. Not saying they wont, but not much ROI there. And crime is a business.
I personally think Sandisk is the only USB flash storage anyone should consider. I’m an IT director and see pretty much every other brand flake out…anybody who has Sandisk flash storage fail probably has a counterfeit (which is unfortunately a widespread problem for Sandisk)
So avoid eBay, avoid cheap, and just pony up the extra few bucks and buy something that’ll actually outlast its usefulness.
Agreed. I had one get washed AND dried and still works!
Just had my 128 gig one take a dive
Not too happy.
Used this once - halfway thru loading a 3gb file it died.
Loaded it with photos to transfer and it Crashed. Bummed out. Can I get it replaced?
Sorry you had trouble. Looks like these flash drives have a Lifetime Limited Centon warranty. I’d recommend reaching out to Centon for assistance.
