These are junk. Don’t buy. I did last time they were here.

Oh neat, a crappy USB for $3.25 plus sales tax, plus $5 shipping. What. An. Awesome. Deal.

This is really indicative of what woot! has become. This site is a sh*thole now.

Last two times I bought these on WOOT, they were 2.99.

Well, bought 5 more, even at the .26 more per drive. These are great drives to just have lying around, to give to people when they need a file.

Dang and here I thought it was the best deal I had seen on here in over a year… Oh well. Thanks.

Support says that all product information about these drives is on the spec section of the product description. I guess that means they don’t work with Linux. Too bad.

My bit of Google research shows that it is recognized by a standard kernal Linux. If your version of Linux recognizes other USB flash drives, it should work with this one.

One example

Not sure what to believe. Most recent reviews at the mothership are pretty good mostly.

https://www.amazon.com/Toshiba-TransMemory-Flash-Drive-16GB/product-reviews/B00NWEBOEM/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_viewopt_srt?showViewpoints=1&reviewerType=all_reviews&pageNumber=1&sortBy=recent

You have to actually read the reviews, and notice many of the 4- and 5-star reviews end in, “I received this product for free in exchange for my honest and unbiased review…”

That says it all. Amazon gives out crap for free to get people to give positive reviews. Sure, they state it is “unbiased”, but let’s think about that. If they want to keep receiving free stuff from Amazon for writing reviews that push their sales, they are not going to write bad reviews. If they did, that gravy train would dry up quick.

The TransMemory ID posted speeds that were expected from an entry-level USB device. For sequential speeds, we measured 33.2MB/s read and 18.1MB/s write, which are numbers that hover around what a USB 2.0 device is capable of. In addition, our random large-block transfer benchmark measured only 31.7MB/s read and 1.31MB/s write.

So, are they junk or are they great?

Let’s agree to a compromise, and call them, “Great Junk”.

Generic bulk, or retail packaging? Anybody? Thanks!

Retail packaging

OMg… You people b1tch too much. I got these last go wround. Been using them for “live” boot usb’s for image restoration, live cd ios’s, etc. Not had any issues. Speed read/write is MORE then acceptable for the price.

So, please, if you think 3 bucks is too much and they are junk, hop on over to the mother ship or better yet, ebay and find a name brand for this price. In for 5 more, mixed colors.
Thanks woot.

I bought 3 last time and they work great, neat little drives. Would buy again.

What’s junky about them? I bought a few last time, and I thought they were a good value. I bought more today.

I think now I’ve bought a total of 11 of these, and they’ve come in serious handy.
Hand 'em to a friend who needs a file and you don’t have to worry about getting it back, keep 3 as various live disks so when I need one I don’t have to wait, keep a VM on one to take back and forth from work (I know there’s easier ways to do that, but it’s nice having it in my pocket)
