    Isn’t samsung one of the better brands for flash drives? Stop buying them online, especially the too good to true ones, like1 tb for $5. Counterfeit flash drives are rampant, especially on Amazon. I always go to a physical store to get flash drives. All these online places have some guy selling shit and who knows who you’re buying from or if it’s real or not. physical stores has much better chain of custody and much less likely to be a fake

    Just get a USB 3 NVME enclosure with a heatsink, the longevity and speed will be much better.

    USB thumb sticks are for fricking normies who dont give a shit about speed or data retention.

      will that function enough like a flash drive to allow ventoy to be installed on it?

        it'll act like any other external drive, only it will have more reliable flash storage in it. (assuming you shove a somewhat decent brand of storage in it like Samsung or Crucial).

    They just work for me.
    My oldest drives are pre-2008 PNY stuff: a 512MB one, one 1GB, and one 4GB. Thr first two have many, many years of frequent use. I also have a Lexar V50 from 2015 I bought off eBay in 2020 to dedicate to my beloved Roland Juno-DS61 keyboard as that keyboard synth doesn't like more modern flash drives.

    My favorite and most used drives now are the ones in my pic. That Samsung USB C drive is as good as a 2.5" SATA SSD inside a USB enclosure. Stupid awesome for dirt cheap.
    I would never buy one of those extra tiny drives like in your pic, tiny enough to be confused with a bluetooth adapter, kek. I'm pretty sure those are the most heavily compromised designs.

    the trick is to get something that's not usb3, they never break

    • 4 weeks ago

      no, the trick is to read reviews

      Stop buying the smallest and/or cheapest ones
      Those are always pieces of shit
      Get something like pic related in 128GB or 256GB capacities that can sustain >100MB/s writes

      the little blue Samsung USB C does triple that, though actual top write speed varies per unit, so one might go well over 300MB/s, the next one might do 301, mine does 272. Typically what you get from 2.5" SATA SSDs in USB enclosures.

      Getting an expensive stick wouldn't make sense as OP is clearly using it for storing an OS or a database or something.

    I've never had a single flash drive die on me, I always stop using them after several years when I replace them with a bigger one.
    But I still have a perfectly working 2gb one on my router that has been on 24/7 for more than a decade now
