(repost)

Sandisk Cruzer Glide 256GB USB Flash Drive for $42 with free shipping.

If you are a Costco member, you can save $2 at Costco.com.

256GB is massive storage for a small portable flash drive, but this particular flash drives performs very slow. It can take several minutes or hours to copy files to and from this little drive. Audio and video files should work fine since they stream slowly while playing, but photos and saved documents will have a noticeable lag.

So,
  • This drive is good for: Backups, and bringing photos, videos, and music files with you on a trip.
  • Not recommended for: Everyday use, since it runs so slow.
Reviewers on Amazon.com, on BestBuy.com, and on Costco.com confirm the slow speeds.

How slow? If the drive performs at 4-5 MBytes per second (as some reviewers have seen), it can take:
  • 1-2 seconds to copy a 5 MB photo or audio file.
  • 20-25 seconds to copy a 100 MB document.
  • 3.5 to 4 minutes to copy a 1 GB movie file.
  • 14 hours to backup 256 GB
If you want a faster drive, many 128GB "USB 3.0" flash drives can be found for about $33, such as this one and this one.
