Details:Sandisk 256GB USB Flash Drive $42

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

If you are a Costco member, you can save $2 by buying it from

256GB is massive storage for a small portable flash drive, but this one will perform slow. That means it can take several minutes or hours to copy files to and from this little drive. So, this drive will work fine with video and audio files since they stream slowly, but photos and saved documents will perform slowly since they must be read in their entirety to view them.

Reviewers on, on, and on confirm the slow speeds.

How slow? If the drive performs at 5 MBytes per second (as some reviewers have seen), it can take:
  • 1-2 seconds to copy 5 MB
  • 20 seconds to copy 100 MB
  • 3.5 minutes to copy 1 GB
  • 14 hours to copy 256 GB
This drive can be good for backups and for bringing a lot of files with you on trips, without filling up precious space on your laptop's disk. However, if you have little patience and prefer files to copy much faster, consider a 128GB USB3.0 flash drive which are often found for about $40.
