Need to know where you can get it.

Edit: Never mind found it

Get a MouseJiggler.

They're awesome and don't interfere with actual usage.

u/RatchetFucker · 65 pointsr/television

Excuse me, sir. Have you heard about our lord and savior, Kingston HyperX Predator?

u/AngryKae · 56 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

I have a 32GB usb like that and everyone is all like "is that a bluetooth receiver? It's a usb stick? Woah how big? WHAT, 32GB, How much was it? Huh, $20."

EDIT: Just thought I would leave a link to the USB, it is pretty good and has fast file speed transfer(sometimes 15mb\s)

EDIT2: Oh, and they are a total cunt to get out.

u/lucaspiller · 52 pointsr/DataHoarder

I came across this last night while browsing eBay. Thought you guys might like a chuckle. There's a load of them, even from Western sellers. If you read the small print, it's basically an 8GB flash drive with hacked firmware. Well I can dream...


Apparently you can get 1TB flash drives, not for quite the same price though:

u/EChondo · 45 pointsr/mildlyinfuriating

Reminds me of one of my girlfriend's Comp class quizzes that just happened last month. I was helping her out since she didn't really understand or know a lot about tech. This was one of the questions;

> What's the highest capacity flash drive currently available;
> A. 16GB
> B. 24GB
> C. 64GB
> D. 1TB

Well since I know Kingston came out with a 1TB flash drive last year I knew for a 100% fact that D was the right answer.


And worst of all it didn't tell us what the correct answer was and since most of the powerpoints the professor gives to her are labeled "2012" I bet the "correct" answer was B. I'm still pissed off.

u/DDotJ · 42 pointsr/teslamotors

A few extras I recommend:

  • Dash Cam for sure, I recommend the Blackvue cameras.

  • The Abstract Ocean LED light upgrade The lights that come with the car are pretty weak, and they make a huge difference in the trunk.

  • Abstract Ocean Key Fob Covers which come in leather and silicon (I personally prefer the leather ones, I had both and the silicon didn't hold up very long for me)

  • If you have a large USB music collection, this Low Profile USB Storage Stick will hold your music and it won't stick out like a sore thumb (drive)

  • Model S and X don't come with spare tires, so this Tire Repair Kit from Tesla could come in handy if you have a small leak and don't have time to call roadside assistance

  • I sleep in my car from time to time, so I leave a Tesla Blanket (unfortunately looks like those are no longer available) and a sleeping bag in the frunk. It's very comfy

  • This flashlight has come in handy countless times, it's nice to carry around and it's powerful too

  • A first aid kit and a ResQMe Car Escape Tool which is a spring loaded window breaker and seat belt cutter.

    Congrats and enjoy your new car!

They can, you can buy a 1TB usb drive

No one is buying them, so they aren't making many

I got a 256gb key for work, it has every single microsoft product on it, bootable, plus Ubuntu, RHEL and VMware and is bootable to install any of those OS's

Better yet, the Android version is $15 for a 64GB USB 3.0 OTG.

Price for a 64GB USB 2.0 iXpand for iOS? $70.

u/YouGottaKillYourMind · 25 pointsr/pokemongo

I always enjoyed this way of putting it:
>The iPhone 6 uses an Apple-designed 64 bit Cortex A8 ARM architecture composed of approximately 1.6 billion transistors. It operates at 1.4 GHZ and can process instructions at a rate of approximately 1.2 instructions every cycle in each of its 2 cores. That’s 3.36 billion instructions per second. Put simply, the iPhone 6’s clock is 32,600 times faster than the best Apollo era computers and could perform instructions 120,000,000 times faster. You wouldn’t be wrong in saying an iPhone could be used to guide 120,000,000 Apollo era spacecraft to the moon, all at the same time.

You could, technically, take the amount of computing power in an iPhone 6, and send 120,000,000 Apollo 11s to the moon. 120 MILLION.

Here's another. This is a picture from 1956 of a 5-megabyte hard drive being brought out of a plane.

Sixty years later, here's the biggest consumer-available USB drive, which is 200,000 times bigger in storage size. It just blows me away.

u/Lavins · 24 pointsr/techsupportgore

This is actually better. I use these at my "largely successful government agency / hospital" on the monitors. They're used to display exact times of shuttles arriving and departing. Before the AD group for 15 min exemption was created, we had to come up with a temporary solution. This was it and man, they worked very well. This is the slow version. The blue one is the caffeine induced version, although slightly cheaper. Either one will get the job done that all the software ones failed to do.

If you like this lock then here is another similar product -

u/DynaBeast · 19 pointsr/mildlyinteresting

Take the Sandisk Cruzer fit for example. It doesn't leave any extra space, and keeps the drive as small as possible. I thought this was a cool idea because it was so small; it'd be hard to break while it's plugged in and easy to stuff into say a pencil sharpener or other small crevice.

When I actually got it though, I realized that it was so small that it was fairly difficult to get a good grip on, and as a result nearly impossible to pull out of the slightly recessed usb ports on my desktop. I still have it, it's not a bad drive or anything. But I'd much sooner get something a bit bigger.

u/Tokfrans03 · 18 pointsr/INEEEEDIT

Or use a password manager (I like Keepass over cloud solutions so I can control it).

Plop it on a thumb drive, stick the thumb drive on your key ring (this Kingston model is perfect for me), and blam. You can have ultra secure passwords that you can easily access.

The only really problems to this solution that I've found over years of doing it are that:

  1. You should keep a backup of your thumb drive in case it becomes damaged or lost. You should be doing this anyway.... Here's a good xcopy command for Windows command line which will quickly do this: xcopy THUMBDRIVELETTER:\ HARDDRIVELETTER:\usbbackup /E /C /Q /Y Or you could just copy and paste.
  2. If you're switching between OSs (I use Windows at home and Mac at work) then research the compatibility.

    Otherwise it's a lovely solution for me.

    I avoid cloud solutions like LastPass because I don't like my info living on the cloud where ne'er do wells can hack it. And avoid using dropbox to sync this program for the same reason.

    The likelihood that the person who finds my lost thumb drive is interested in cracking my password database is slim to zero. If you really wanted higher security then place the program on a TrueCrypt volume on the thumb drive.
u/Orval · 15 pointsr/RedditLaqueristas

You do know that flash drives can be basically just the size of the connector right?

u/FearAndGonzo · 15 pointsr/sysadmin

Get one of these and have an OS on it, plug it in the laptop when you travel and have USB as the first boot option. It is so small no one would notice it, when you want to actually boot up just remove it.

This is the best flash drive option for Wii. It doesn't overheat and it has great compatibility. It even works with UNEEK + DI, and most USB drives I've tested don't.

u/ion-tom · 13 pointsr/promos

My thoughts too. The library of congress is under 20 TB.
You can now buy a 1 TB thumb stick if you want A Mars Mission has no reason NOT to bring copies of every written work ever created.

That all said, don't leave out the Red Mars series by KSR!

u/Morczor · 13 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I'm 99% sure that it's not actually 2 TB.

The largest I know of is 1 TB and costs a bit over $1000.

EDIT: Found this, pretty much the same thing as OP has but a "Sony" - basically confirms it's fake:

EDIT 2: There's a pretty good deal on the REAL 1 TB one on Amazon

This is why these were invented

Pretty much all these arrests were skiddies..

u/JoshuaGD · 11 pointsr/DJs

i just made the switch from traktor and the S4 to CDJs and to be honest there is nothing more liberating than being able to show up with a pair of thumb drives and a pair of headphones and performing just as freeform as I did in traktor, albeit with 1/100th the library access (but hey, maybe one day I'll win the lottery and upgrade to the new shit).

u/0intel32 · 11 pointsr/blackfriday

These things are slow as hell. Spend a little more and get the extreme. This one goes about 4 Mb/s.


Get the extreme:

I have the older version and it gets to about 230 MB/s with my hardware config.

I think this one is still marked as a fixed disk so some tools will not allow you to make it bootable (you can still boot from it however)

u/Anenome5 · 11 pointsr/btc

> I didn't like the burden that increased blocks would put on nodes.

Have you seen the recent Graphene technology by Garzik? That problem is solved. A 1mb block can be communicated with a mere 2kb of data to the rest of the network using bloom filters.

> I believed this would push bitcoin towards centralization, that nodes would be forced to drop out from the increased storage burden.

Storage is cheap as hell and always getting cheaper, this was never an issue. The current blockchain is like 100gb, how much does that cost today? I can get that much space on a thumbdrive for less than $40 today, literally.

The larger issue was network flooding, but Graphene solves that handily.

> However, today I've moved several cryptocurrencies around extremely fast and with extremely low fees, while I have two bitcoin transactions stuck with $9 total fee for hours.

Me too. The reduced utility caused by full blocks should be a red-flag for everyone. That's why those who know what it means are leaving the ship after B2x was cancelled. It's a vote of no-confidence in the direction of Core.

> So, I'll admit it. Whatever's going on on our side, it doesn't seem to be working. Segwit sounds good, but Lightning Network? I don't know if that's the solution for this.

> So. I'm a No2xer, and after today, I think i might have been wrong.

Glad you're seeing the light. See, there's actually logic over here and we aren't all simply shills or pumpers. BCH preserves the original development path of bitcoin, it literally has more claim to the bitcoin name that corecoin does at this point.

u/fletom · 11 pointsr/bapcsalescanada

for anyone who doesn't know, these make excellent boot drives for secondary/server PCs that won't use much storage, since they sit almost flush with the USB port

they also have 64GB for $19.99:

and 128GB for $37.99:

u/I_Object_Your_Honour · 11 pointsr/oddlysatisfying
u/fictionthatspulp · 10 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Hopefully you didn't spend much OP. There is no such thing as a 2tb flash drive. Kingston currently makes a 1tb flash drive which costs ~900 USD but it looks gooooooood. A simple google search will tell you that sandisk doesn't make a flash drive of that size. It'll fill up way before that 100gb mark. I'd say around 8-32gb.

u/RE4PER_ · 10 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Wow I just found out that they actually exist. You can get one here for a whopping 899.99

u/xavierfox42 · 10 pointsr/buildapcsales

Or how about the SanDisk Extreme USB 3.0 64GB?

245 MB/s read, 190 MB/s write, $10 cheaper once you factor in the Massdrop shipping, and you don't have to wait until February 10 for it to ship since it's Prime.

u/Xuis · 9 pointsr/EDC

I would recommend a flashlight, and small multitool.


I would recommend the Fenix E05 | [Amazon Link] $20.13 for a very small light.


The Leatherman Style | [Amazon Link] $16.79 is my most used item on my keychain because of the great scissors and minimal toolset. It has none of the tools I don't ever use. If you're looking for a more versitile toolset, look through the remainder of Leatherman's great micro-multi-tool lineup. Try to stay away from Gerber products if at all possible.


A flash-drive can be useful as well, but it's hard to find one that is both small and durable. I did a lot of research on which option to buy for quite a while. The grail of USB flash drives is the PQI Tiffy because of its incredible speed and durable housing. Unfortunately, it is nearly impossible to find for sale, and it's also super expensive. I went for the Kingston Datatraveler | [Amazon Link] $10.40, and it's working very well for me.


I've rarely needed one, but many folks want to carry a fire-starter with them, and there are some small options for your keychain. The Exotac NanoStriker $23.50 is a ferrocerium-based striker, and the True Utility FireStash [Amazon Link] $16.23 is a simple, tiny lighter.


Finally, it's nice to have your keys hanging in a comfortable place in your pocket, and not in a bunched-up heap at the bottom. Definitly consider grabbing a P-7 suspension clip $12+shipping. I waited a while to pull the trigger on mine, but I don't regret it.
Another option would be the Obstructures Pry/Open tool $32. It serves as a pry-bar, which you don't yet understand how much you might use after you start carrying one.

Additional Information

Here's my setup today.

Here is a great post by /u/goretsky about where to buy one-handed multi-tools like Atwood, etc.


P.S. It's great to have a color-scheme for your keychain. It looks fantastic.

u/Davecasa · 9 pointsr/teslamotors

FAT32 supports drives up to 16 TB. These USB drives come with a single 128 GB FAT32 partition already created on them.

Edit: Someone below reported that they received this drive as EXFAT. I got 3 of them last week as FAT32, so your mileage may vary.

u/GoodGuyGiff · 9 pointsr/PS4

Very easy.

You can find a pre made build online and just copy it to a flash drive and it’s good to go. As long as the drive is plugged in, the hack works. Power off the system and unplug the drive and it’s back to stock.


Here’s what I can confirm works flawlessly with my PlayStation Classic

Samsung MUF-128AB/AM FIT Plus 128GB - 300MB/s USB 3.1 Flash Drive

Plugable USB 2.0 2-Port High Speed Ultra Compact Hub/Splitter (480 Mbit/s, USB 2.0 Windows, Linux, OS X, Chrome OS)

I’m pretty sure I can’t link directly to the site with the pre made build, but arcadepunks dot com and look around. Copy that build onto a drive and you’re good to go.

u/jordanpitt269 · 9 pointsr/buildapcsales

Just a heads up, this is $22.49 on amazon and it’s prime. 1-day shipping where I am.

u/onsit · 8 pointsr/subaru

I originally did this install back in the day when these were first popping up and down, major credit goes to /u/zedix as I'm pretty sure he was the first one on Nasioc to start this whole trend for Subarus.

My first installation used a head unit that was tucked away behind everything. However the weak pre-amp, and the constant loss of settings (disconnecting battery), and lack on Steering Wheel controls really got annoying. So I set out on this Version 2 project.

*96svx.dc - David was an amazing resource with getting the required harnesses for an 08+, as my car came with a 24pin + 12pin adapter (premium nav) it was very hard to find 2 reverse harnesses that would make this install doable.**

  • 2012 Nexus 7 - 1st gen
  • Timur's USB ROM - in FI mode
  • Typical Apps...

  • Joycon CPJexr(CarPc Joycon Exr), converts steering wheel input into Keyboard strokes recognizable by the tablet. LINK
  • Rockford Fosgate PBR300X4 - 300watt amp with Molex input/output LINK
  • USB Dual 80mm Fans with protective grill - LINK
  • 3.5mm inline to RCA (dual channel) - LINK
  • Amazon USB hubs, cheap and easy to hack into - LINK
  • Monoprice USB Extension Cables - LINK
  • SanDisk Cruzer Fit 32GB - Stores Music - LINK
  • Monoprice Micro USB OTG Adapter - LINK
  • USB Y-Power adapter
  • JDM 2-tone AV panel
  • 12v to 5v DC/DC converters (You will need a couple of these, as they are from China they might be DoA)
  • Other various adapters, and 14 ga wire for all of this to work..

    I created a double din sized Acrylic box from 1/4" sheets cut to size by a local shop... Here are the outer dimensions if you are interested in making a similar box to hold all of this.

  • [OD] - 4" x 7" x 5.75"
  • [x 1] - 4" x 7"
  • [x 2] - 6.5" x 5.5"
  • [x 2] - 4" x 5.5"

    Hardest part out of the whole install was coming up with the wiring scheme, as all of this is fed off of 12v ignition. The tablet needed to be able to charge, and the USB hub needed to receive power separate from the OTG y-splitter. I simply spliced into the cheap-o USB hubs and made my own DIY 5v USB hubs.

You put all your music in folders I just name the folder the CD or artist. I can then search by spelling. Technology is amazing.

u/txgsync · 7 pointsr/DataHoarder

> I'm really trying to make the right decision when I move to Ubuntu 16.04 and ZFS is high on my list of decisions to make

Typing this on my Ubuntu 16.04 laptop right now running root ZFS :-)

For your root pool, there's really one correct decision to make: single drive, mirrored drive, or triple-mirrored drive? While you can install ZFS root to a RAIDz, there are many good reasons (too many to list today; I'm short on time) to not do so for your rpool.

I've lost the last two weekends playing with ZFS on root Ubuntu 16.04, and I am also on the architecture team that orchestrates & troubleshoots the world's largest farm of several thousand Oracle ZFS Storage Appliances. So hopefully that makes me slightly qualified to answer :-)

One of my favorite hidden gems of ZFS is "zfs set compression=lz4 (or on older pools, "lzjb")". In general, this dramatically speeds up reading and writing for most mixed-data zpools. By setting this on your "root" Ubuntu pool, you can use just a pair of cheap, tiny 8GB to 16GB USB memory sticks for your root pool, and you'll see the typical install size shrink by a factor of well over 2:1 without any noticeable CPU overhead (my root zpool usually requires around 8GB, excluding /home but including /var; it shrinks to around 2.5GB with lz4). If you set "atime=off" as well, this reduces writes to the device and often increases IOPS. Finally, "set xattr=sa" stores metadata about the block in the dnode instead of separately on disk, reducing IOPS further and accelerating access in a safe way.

Heck, if you're concerned about running out of space in your root zpool, install two 64GB USB sticks instead. You're out twenty bucks a stick, and these new tiny ones are very unlikely to catch and break on anything.

For the rest of your drives, it really depends upon your use case. If you plan to do large media storage and you're the only person using the array, RAIDz is probably just fine for the rest of the drives. Using a small, fast SSD as "SLOG" (Separate Log) will often make write performance a non-issue on a lightly-used RAIDz spindle-based array.

If you're using drives 3TB or larger -- particularly at 5400RPM! -- RAIDz resilver times become dangerously long. Around that point, if you're going to stick with RAIDz I usually suggest RAIDz2 for safety during resilvers.

All that said, I strongly prefer mirrors for all my zpools today on spindles. Read IOPS are identical to a stripe, writes are half that of a stripe, and resilver times are dramatically faster for mirror than RAIDz. Conversely, a RAIDz2 6-drive array boasts capacity only 17% larger than that of a mirror (when compared to the striped size), has 6x worse read IOPS and 3x worse write IOPS than a mirror. However, a RAIDz array offers at least twice the read throughput or mirror, which is important for single-writer cases like media storage and video editing where IOPS aren't really a concern.

Hope that helps!

u/zakabog · 7 pointsr/pcmasterrace

I can't tell if you're serious but why would you even bother converting IDE to SATA? For $20 you can buy a USB thumb drive that's faster and has more space than any IDE drive.

Cryptex Round Lock USB Flash Drive 32 GB, USB 3.0

u/OmegaStageThr33 · 7 pointsr/teslamotors

This one works well for me. Also like form factor.

u/nivikus · 6 pointsr/hardware

Does it need to be USB 3.0? You said you'd like it to be discrete and extra small flash drives, in general, are slower. They often will not break USB 2.0 speeds of about 48MBp/s. e.g. Sandisk Cruzr Fit is one of the smallest flash drives I know of and dismissing it for being USB2.0 is senseless because it wont reach write/read speeds that fast. I don't know how reliable that hook will be for keychain use though.

The Sandisk Extreme on the other hand has a sturdy keychain hook, and would actually utilize USB 3.0 speeds. I'm also a fan of the Kingston Ultimate G3 when it comes to read/write speeds for cheap. However, neither are terribly small or discrete.

I think the Patriot Rage XT that scapermoya linked would be your best compromise between discreteness and speed.

u/McSqueeb · 6 pointsr/technology

I was in the market for a Chromebook a few months ago, but was holding off to see what came out in Q4. Then I saw the HP Stream and got excited, but it wasn't available in any local stores yet. (I didn't want to just order it online because I like to touch laptops before buying them.)

Then I saw the X205 at Best Buy last weekend, played with it for a bit, and snatched it up hella-fast. My wife has a Lenovo Yoga 2 and (minus the touchscreen) they are quite comparable.

Speakers on the X205 are super loud and sound great for the size of the laptop. Off to Windows is about 12-15sec. I bought one of those nano USB keys in 32GB to increase my storage of files too.

1TB is here now, 2TB not far away. But not much of a market for $2730 USB drives.

u/solaybro · 6 pointsr/newzealand

On amazon you can buy this actual 1TB one for $879USD.

u/weimacys · 6 pointsr/buildapcsales

It's a good deal, but not as huge of a deal as Best Buy wants you to think it is. The retail price is super inflated. A quick Amazon search shows a Sandusk 128gb USB 3.0 for $25 discounted from $28.00.

u/Oremm · 6 pointsr/DJs

I'm currently using these.
128GB because I am using only lossless files.
USB 3.0 because of transfer speed when exporting from Rekordbox.

u/pyotrthegreat · 6 pointsr/EDC

Truthfully I'd just recreate what I have, as it would almost entirely fit inside the budget:
SS Jotter, I used this before switching to a TT Shaker, it is still fantastic.
Leek, been thinking about upgrading but still fantastic and the alternatives are way more expensive.
SF 348 I got the unlabelled BLF variant, and it is fantastic. Sleek, small, and bright.
MOTA Pocket Tool One of the card tool variants, I've used a few of its parts, but will radily admit that on these not everything is useful.
Flowfold This holds everything listed above, and does so without increasing the volume of my pocket, and making everything quieter and easier to pick up and go with.
Cable Key Ring Great, because it is large and thin, so I have my keys and car keys and USB on here. I tried a Keydisk mini, but found it still rattles against the car key, is fairly bulky, and cannot hold the USB. May try one of the new Orbitkeys next.
USB Drive, goes with the keys, I actually have a SP J80 32, but for some reason that one has increased in price.
Bifold Wallet The one I currently have is very similar, but I have no idea what it is called, a basic bifold.

So, this budget covers everything save the watch, which I didn't leave room for, because downgrading from a pebble would be sad, and getting one would be the entire budget. My choice to recollect everything I have mostly indicates how happy I am with the set that I created.

u/Oen386 · 6 pointsr/RetroPie

I would suggest not doing what you are asking.

Keep the SD card you have. Get a USB drive. They're half as much, and you can add on to the space you already have.

Here is one that is ~$28. Compared to ~$55 micro SD Card..

If you keep your current card and get a USB, you would have about 160 GB of space combined. It will also save you $20.

In my personal experience, I went from a 32 GB card that was supported and worked great, to one step up to a 64 GB (same model, just a larger size). For whatever reason the card can't read continuously, which causes pausing while browsing and stuttering during PS1 movie intros. I ordered two of them, and both have the same issues. I did lots of testing, Pi 2 and Pi 3, 2 different 32 GB cards and 2 different 64 GB cards. The 64 GB cards just had issues with reading and occasionally writing. There were never errors, or bad writes, just delays which can cause pausing. Putting the PS1 games on a USB drive solved that.

Edit: If you're using all the ports on the Pi, then upgrading the card might be less of a headache.

It really depends on what you're looking for.

I'm partial to USB-powered (portable) external hard drives. You can usually find them for less than $50 including shipping if you're alright with keeping the size under 100 GB. Here's just one example from Amazon. This style is great because it only needs to be plugged into the Wii U (physically larger hard drives often require an AC adapter) and it's physically tiny so it will fit next to the Wii U and it's easy to travel with.

It's probably worth mentioning that if you go for an external hard drive, most of the brands have a good warranty, even if they aren't one of the main brands. Just check out the Amazon reviews. I got a super janky 320 GB drive for something like $40, but the reviews all indicated that the company provided great customer service. It's worked great for over a year.

You could also go with a flash drive (as far as I know... I don't see why not) for even more portability, but they are almost always more expensive per GB than an external hard drive would be. Amazon's got a 32 GB one for less than $20 today (assuming you have Prime).

u/fortean · 5 pointsr/classic4chan

USB sticks are hardly protruding nowadays.

u/mattsworkaccount · 5 pointsr/EDC

Oooh, this is a fun challenge.

  • Knife: Spyderco Dragonfly 2 : $49

    This is the most expensive item on my list, but I figure that with knives this is the best small EDC knife you can get for the money. I'm not a fan of large knives for daily carry, and the Dragonfly gets the job done.

  • Watch: Casio Men's Sport Analog Dive Watch : $17

    While I initial thought was the F-91W, this watch seems to have far better water-resistance for roughly $7 more. Plus I prefer analog watches.

  • Wallet: Magpul Industries Daka Polymer Wallet : $17

    While I've never used one of these personally, why not take the loss of all my stuff as an excuse to pare down how much bullshit I carry in my wallet? Reviews (outside of Amazon) seem pretty good and I'd love to give this thing a shot.

  • Multitool: Atwood Prybaby Chinese Knockoff : $3

    I like having one of these kinds of dumb little multitools handy for prying and bottle-opening and other random tasks that I wouldn't want to abuse my knife with. At only $3 it's worth the space in my budget and my keychain. Speaking of keychains...

  • Keychain: Stainless Steel Aircraft Cable Keychain : $2

    If you're like me, you often have to add and remove keys and other items from your keychain. Wire/cable keychains are the friggin best for this. I generally prefer the ball-and-socket types rather than the kind that screw closed, but I'm counting my dollars here.

  • Writing Utensil: Pilot G2 0.5mm (12-Pieces) : $10.75 per 12, ~$1 per ea.

    I can't stand pens that use caps, and nothing writes as well for me as the Pilot G2. 0.5mm is about as fine a line as I want to get because the 0.38mm ones tend to get a bit scratchy on most paper. And if you'll allow me to count the cost as only a dollar rather than the price of a twelve-pack...

  • Bonus Round: Kingston Digital 32GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive : $9

    With a few extra buck open in the budget, I realized that I've had one of these on my keychain for about as long as I can remember, and it pays to have one handy with a copy of your choice of documents, music, and other media. Super handy to keep available at all times.


    My total price for these tools puts me at $98, assuming the cost of only one pen. I assumed that I would be able to keep my phone, which provides me with enough illumination that I've never bothered with carrying a dedicated flashlight outside of the colder months when I'm usually wearing a coat. So I didn't bother with choosing one for this challenge. Anyone have any good suggestions for AAA, clicky tail-button flashlights under $20?

It does. Stay clear of it. There are alternatives. I prefer the samsung mini drive myself, but there are other choices (leef, etc).

The sandisk ultra fit pulls a slightly higher voltage than the others, hence its heat problems. Sandisk redesigned it (and I'm not sure if I have any of the newer batch), but there still seems to be some concern amongst owners, judging by reviews.

So why risk it? Sandisk makes great regular-sized usb sticks, but steer clear of their mini version.

Congrats on getting the car! I'm in Canada so I thought I would post some of what I bought.
Here’s some of the bits I bought and I noticed I got a lot different items than most people got here

I want a console wrap but haven't pulled a trigger yet
Floor mats
apparently Costco and 1010tires carry them but I got them from there
The trunk mat from tesla is nice.. I got that as well
there’s two usb ports up front. I unplugged one of them and put a usb drive in and it records the dashcam, and also records out of the various cameras while it’s in Sentry Mode
I got that one because it’s super slim. Just make a folder on the drive called TeslaCam and then put it in the car and it knows to do the rest..
the lights in the trunk are SO dim they are useless. I got these. They pop out and the cable is just a clip so really easy to install and these are so much brighter and cheap. Worth the upgrade items
little mats that go in the cup holders
makes it easier to clean when milk gets spilled in there
no tire place will work on your car without these little plastic protector pucks. They go under the car on the jack lift points, then they will lift the car up. I had to order these for when I got my tires changed and I leave them in the car.

So do you carry a linux pc with you? If yes you can just create a partition and boot from that when you need to. If you absolutely need to boot from a usb you could get a drive like this and leave it plugged in all the time because it sits almost flush with the usb port. If you are set on EDCing a usb drive get something that is damage resistent with a cap like a Corsair Voyager to keep put lint and moisture from damp clothing.

u/Lanza21 · 4 pointsr/apple

Guess how many orders of magnitude it is cheaper for Apple? Upgrading the flash storage minimum to 32gb costs about as much as printing a few more pages in the manual. They do it to force you to pay $100 for 64gb (which also costs them pennies.)

u/ypod · 4 pointsr/xboxone

High capacity thumb drives for really cheap are usually frauds. The thumb drive will report itself as 1TB to your computer or device, but will only actually have a much smaller storage size. Once the actual storage space runs out, you will run into huge problems with data corruption as your device tries to write to storage that just isn't there.

A 1TB hard drive (like the passport you mentioned) will be much cheaper than a legit 1TB thumb drive, and will probably be faster too.

EDIT: There are legit high capacity thumb drives, but they are very expensive. For instance, the 1TB kingston retails for over $1000.

u/IsimplywalkinMordor · 3 pointsr/freenas

I've always used the HP USB disk format tool to recover my flash drives. Maybe try that to get them working again. It's on windows though. I'm not sure about your boot errors. I installed using dual Sandisk usb 2.0 cruiser fit 16gb and it seems to work fine (11.2). There used to be an issue with 3.0 drives which is why I bought 2.0 just in case but I think that has been fixed now.

I recently heard Freenas is now writing stuff to boot media more frequently which is causing more burnout on USB drives. Mine have been fine for a few years now on multiple servers and still going strong (knock on wood).

I think i used win32diskimager to write freenas iso to my usb drive so maybe try that. Other than that good luck i hope you get it resolved.

u/Smallzfry · 3 pointsr/linuxquestions

Default Raspbian Lite should be good enough for your purposes. Have a backup of the files on an external drive (get a small USB drive similar to this one), so that way in case the data does get corrupted then nothing is really lost.

I will note that there aren't really any distros designed to be shut down quickly, so you may want to look into using something like a small battery to control power to the Pi, then have the battery hooked to the car so it charges when the car is running. Then you can use a proper poweroff switch (I think you ground pins 5 and 6) to shut down properly and avoid corruption.

u/definitelynotaspy · 3 pointsr/EDC

I recommend this flash drive. Super small, durable, easy to carry. Plus it looks great.

For a knife, a Spyderco Ladybug or Dragonfly would be good places to start. The Ladybug is really small but it takes and holds an edge well and I've used mine for all sorts of shit. Very much a keychain knife. The Dragonfly is bigger and has a clip, so there are more carry options, but it also takes up more space. If space isn't a concern, I'd opt for a Spyderco Delica or Endura. All these knives have VG-10 steel, which offers the best bang for your buck (in my opinion) until you start getting into the higher-end knives. You could also opt for a multi-tool, in which case I'd suggest a Leatherman Juice or Squirt.

As for a watch, it really depends on your needs. Are you looking for stylish or practical?

Get an A&P ring for all your gadgets. I use a bunch of size .5 Nite-Ize s-biners to attach all of my stuff to my ring, which is nice because it makes it really easy to remove/add things as you need to. An alternative to the A&P ring would be a Lucky Line ring.

Also, one unsolicited recommendation: get a Gerber Shard. They're five bucks and incredibly useful. One of the best purchases I've ever made.

The read speed doesn't really matter much. Most head units do have a limitation on size though and it's usually measured in some arcane unit like number of folders or files.

I have one and it's so much nicer than having something big sticking out of your dash ready to be broken off.

I also have a 2013 sonata (mine is a se). Mine resumes where I left off, reads tons of files/folders. It does lose the random setting if you turn the car off, but I think that is the car, not the drive. The cd player loses random settings as well when you turn off the car.

Anyway, if you can spring for it, I'd just buy the drive I linked above, leave it formatted as is when you get it and call it a day. I like that drive because it is so small you can almost close that cover over the USB port back down so it doesn't look like you have anything in there at all.

1. If size is a priority then when I did research the Sandisk Extreme was one of the fastest usb drives:

2. If speed is your top priority simply buy a regular 2.5" ssd, and a usb/sata cable. It will be much faster than any thumb drive, basically the same speed as an internal sdd. This is what I do for backups it is really really fast.

u/archover · 3 pointsr/thinkpad

Maybe I was unclear. :-)

Option 1:

  • Remove your windows ssd. Set aside.

  • Buy another hdd and put into your laptop, and install Linux onto it. Your computer will just boot into Linux.

  • When you need to run Windows, pull the Linux hdd and install the ssd. On my laptop, this swap takes < 2min.

    Option 2 (dual boot):

  • Shrink the windows partitions

  • Boot a Linux install media, and create another partition

  • Install Linux to that new partition, configuring grub to dual boot.

  • Restart the computer, pick Win or Linux to boot and you're done.

    Option 3 (external drive):

  • Buy an external hdd or flash drive (32GB or 64GB) with USB3 interface.

  • Plug drive into computer.

  • Boot Linux install media, and install to external drive.

  • Reboot, hit F12 for boot menu, choose the USB drive to boot Linux, or the internal drive to boot Windows.

    BIOS usually has an function key that will activate a menu of bootable drives. Very quick and easy.

    Note: The external USB3 flash drive boot works very well for me. It's a Sandisk 3.0 32GB Extreme Pro. 100MB/sec write, and 200MB/sec read. Trust me, that is good for what it is. It has been very acceptable in every way.

You could your Linux Live-USB idea, but also keep the files accessible via USB so you can access them on a smartphone. A smartphone would be a much better device to have prepared for a SHTF situation. It's smaller, lighter, more power efficient, and can even be powered via solar energy. Pair it with a 20,000mAh power bank, and you might just get a month of power with the smartphone's radios turned off and brightness turned down.

Another good option would be a Kindle. A full charge can give a month of two of usage, and you can store lots of documents/manuals/books on their too.

I would go 32gb 3.0. That's the best value IMO.

I carry this one:

And I love it. It lives on my keying, and I was worried about it getting bent or dented, but I've had it over a year now and it's totally fine. It's the smallest one I could find that wasn't stupid small like the Sandisk Cruzer Fit or Ultra Fit. I used to have one of those. It was dumb. theres no need to go that small unless it's a semi-permanent fixture on whatever you stick it in. The only con to the Transcend is that it's hole isn't big enough for any common split ring to fit through, at least not that I could find. I had to buy a tiny one for it so I could actually put it on a key ring with my keys. Edit: actually, it does fit, the problem is that the hole is just large enough to fit and gets bound up - can't rotate freely.

This one stays in my tool bag and has a lanyard on it:

I picked that one up honestly because it was the cheapest and reasonably smallest size at the 32gb capacity. I haven't had to use the micro USB side yet, but I figured it might come in handy some day on a gig.

If I bought another one, I'd probably get a Kingston like others have suggested, or this guy:

I just realized one day that I would buy something, use it for a week or so, and then toss it in a box and forget about it. So I donated it all except for my rMBP and the other stuff on the list.

I keep a 1TB hard drive for my main data backups of my photography, software, and to hold full-quality Blu-Ray rips of a few of my favorite movies (20-25GB each, the Blu-Rays were then donated to the local library; I know, questionable legality...). It is full-disk encrypted with a LONG passphrase.

The 128GB Flash Drive also holds backups of my iCloud drive, financial files, and other important data that is used more frequently. Also full-disk encrypted with a long passphrase, with the really sensitive data being inside another layer of encrypted DMG's with a different passphrase just in case. It is this flash drive, and is built like a tank:

The overall goal was to have backups of data in multiple places in case something is stolen. It should be noted that I am not a data hoarder though, it is just that much of what I do have on the drives is very important. I have taken a minimalist stance with my data.

Actually a pretty good article. My normal USB carry for IT work:

  • 128gb USB3 on my keyring: I primarily use my laptop with windows 10 at work, but we also have desktop PC's with multimonitor setups. I decided to install kubuntu on my USB, so i can use the desktop PC's on a secure account. Now i don't have to worry about my password manager/firefox account being tied into our work computer, where admins have access. It's also nice to have an encrypted filesystem on my person at all times with 100+ gb of freespace.

    I also keep 7 USB keys in my backpack. You can get usb2.0 keys for extremely cheap these days, and usb3 prices are almost equally as low.

  • Centos7 installer: use this on a weekly basis for work
  • Windows 2012 standard installer: used at least once a month
  • partedmagic: great tool for troubleshooting troublesome computers, or working on weird partitioning issues
  • bootable dos disk: A must have tool for updating firmware, or setting up supermicro IPMI
  • blank USB's for easily transferring installers/files, or making bootable disks. Can never have too many of these!
u/Pjd1999 · 3 pointsr/chromeos

I have an Acer 14 and I love it, good choice on that one. There really isn't that much advice to give, but for your external drive, I'd recommend one of these. It makes it easy to just keep in in the laptop 100% of the time without being annoying. And I did buy a mouse for my Chromebook, but I never use it because I found it to more of a hassle than it was worth, since you'd have this nice sleek laptop, and it would be really annoying to carry around a mouse with it.

My recommendation is to skip the sd card and use one of the high capacity tiny usb drives. The sd card is very slow. I have the 200 gb one and I took it out because it was just so painfully slow.

You don't have to claim DOA, just say you're not satisfied or its no longer needed. Amazon's return policy is quite lenient. Just, try to make sure the seller is Amazon, LLC and not a third party.

I bought the i3 Non Touch, HD (768p) version, and have found it to be an awesome piece of hardware. The i3 is very fast, on the Dev channel it already has support for the Play Store and even without a touchscreen I find it very usable, plus for storage I have a 64gb ultra fit flash drive, and a SanDisk 64gb Micro SD card in at all times. The SD is for storage, and the USB has a chroot installed on it. The Ultra Fit is actually on sale right now from Amazon ( For $345 I would think hard about it... I got mine for a bit less than that, if you feel comfortable with that price though, I'd say it is a quite capable machine compared to the price you'd pay for the HP 13 or Pixel.

u/Ocrizo · 3 pointsr/TeslaModel3

Based on customer reviews on Amazon who are testing this drive with CrystalDiskMark, the standard benchmark used to assess read/write speeds, it is capable of writing 24 Mbps to 29 Mbps. In theory, that should be adequate. However, with the addition of the 4th camera, many user’s flash drives will become inadequate for Sentry Mode.

Edit: capped “Mbps” and added a link to the Amazon listing.

u/dhanson865 · 3 pointsr/teslamotors

depends on if you want best value or money is no object. It also matters if you live somewhere that is very hot or very cold.

The cheapest I'd recommend is the 256GB . It has a 5 year warranty but the lower capacity you get the less time it'll last in a Teslacam usage scenario. The 128GB version isn't likely to last a year in that sort of demanding write cycles. The 256GB might last a year or two.

Those handle some temps that SSDs don't and it's not large so it is less likely to be noticed by a burglar/vandal.

A higher capacity SSD will last longer but you might save money in the long run by replacing a thumb drive every couple of years instead of paying up front for a more expensive drive.

If you have storage elsewhere, or would be willing to go with a external USB drive, you could save a lot of money, space and power by going with the Intel NUC, youd also need the buy RAM, the Power cord, and a USB drive or mSATA drive. You'd be sub $250, and have no issues with 1080p in XBMC.

On the bright side...

If you have a laptop or desktop computer, you can buy a cheap USB optical drive and copy all your CDs into MP3s.

Most of these new car decks have a USB port, and you don't need to plug a phone or iPod into it - you can just toss a bunch of MP3s onto a small thumb drive and plug that into the car's USB port.

Are you looking for a closed project box ? Or a smaller USB?

u/_hester_ · 2 pointsr/EDC

I have a SanDisk Cruzer Fit. It's super-tiny (not much larger than the USB A connector), and it has a small metal loop on the back you can thread onto a key ring.

I can't speak to long-term durability, but it's so small and lightweight, it seems unlikely you could easily destroy/corrupt it with regular key chain carry. For $8 it might be worth your time to just give it a shot. With the way they fabricate these potted boards, it might even be reasonably water proof (assuming you dry it out before some of the metal parts start to significantly corrode).

u/bagofwisdom · 2 pointsr/Ubiquiti

Not too difficult to do the change. I had the same thing happen to my Edgerouter Lite. However, the real problem is loading the OS image to the flash drive. The ERL's OS image was easier to locate. I've never seen the USG's available for download.

If you only have a little bit of data to transfer, you could copy what you need to a USB flash drive and move it with the help of that.

If you have a fair bit of data and don't mind removing the hard drive temporarily, you could consider getting an enclosure like this to turn your desktop hard drive into an external drive. Then you can either keep it that way or copy the files you want over to your laptop, then put the drive back into the desktop.

This would be because most audio formats are already compressed as they are. The resolution is to find a bigger flash drive. You can find relatively cheap ones that will hold 8GBs that would be the perfect size as a backup of your home folder.

I personally use these (

You can also set up a fileserver on a cheap digital ocean account and upload your backups to that. Note that this would be a remote storage that will stay online as long as you pay for it. You could easily use it for the dual purpose of a personal website.

u/GroceryBagHead · 2 pointsr/DataHoarder

Unraid OS runs off USB key like this one . All hard drives are for data only.

Take a look at their site for details, but basically you can mix and match your drives. So you can have 8TB + 6 + 2 + 1 + 320GB drives if you want. Eventually you can toss smaller drives for bigger and grow total space you have available. It's a very simple process. Once again Unraid has a pretty good wiki on how to do all that. I want to mention that each drive has it's own filesystem and all files are always intact (no striping), so technically you can yank a drive and put it in enclosure to move/recover files.

Your parity drive needs to be as large as the largest one in the array and it's the one that provides data loss protection if one of the drives shits the bed. Parity drive is optional, but you really should provision one drive for that.

Your parts look fine. I haven't heard of Avexir RAM brand before, but RAM is RAM as long as it works. Don't bother with CPU cooler. Pretty sure that i3 comes with stock cooler, stick with that, it's fine. You can always get that SSD later, it's not required.

You only need SSD (or just a dedicated drive in general) if you want cache drive and/or want to have docker containers for things like torrent client, plex, etc. It's a pretty nifty system. It's optional too. I didn't have SSD for a couple of months until I got sata expansion card to get more SATA ports. Speaking of which, your mobo only has 6 SATA ports, so you might need to get one too if you fill case with drives and want cache drive too.

I use this splitter and this flash drive. Just plug the splitter into the car, your phone into one side, and the flash drive into the other.

You can also partition the flash drive so that you can record off the Teslacam and play music at the same time, while charging your phone, all from 1 USB port.

Once I get the Jeda pad, I'm going to plug one of the chargers into the cigarette lighter, so then I won't need the splitter.

E: You could remove one of the ports, plug the splitter into it, and replace with one of the splits, with the other split hidden behind with the drive installed.

u/SirNarwhal · 2 pointsr/pics

Ok, since there seems to be interest in doing this on your own so I'll give a quick run down.

  • Find a blind boxed vinyl toy of your liking that has a head that is moveable and is (obviously) wider than a USB stick. For this, I'd highly recommend Kidrobot's Dunny figures or other licensed ones such as their Futurama, Street Fighter, Simpsons, or South Park lines as they meet all of these requirements.

  • Now that you have your toy picked out, you're going to need a USB stick. Since most of these figures are 3 inches tall, you're going to want one of those smaller sticks where it's about 1.5-2 inches total and you're also going to want a USB stick that comes in the traditional two-part way where there's a cover over the USB port that's a separate piece. Most USB sticks fit this criteria in this day and age, and considering how cheap USB sticks are, it's easy to buy a new one if your existing one is too big.

  • Now for the fun parts! Take your vinyl toy and take either a heat gun (if you have one; they're pretty rare) or a hair dryer and heat up your toy until it becomes soft and malleable. Keep heating until you're able to literally just pop the head off of the figure.

  • Take an X-Acto knife and cut the connection between the body and head out on both the body and the head so that now you have access to the hollow insides of the body and head.

  • Take your USB stick and put the USB port side inside the body in the same way that the male connector was coming out of the top. Put the part that covers the USB port inside of the head.

  • There's now a few options to keep everything in place. You can either fill the insides with some sort of liquid putty that dries hard, you could take paper or something similar and stuff the insides to keep the USB parts in place and then glue everything together (this is most certainly the most ghetto method), or what would work best, is to get some Super Sculpey (super cheap and available at your local craft store) and just connect from the USB parts to where the edges of the holes you cut are. If you go the Sculpey route, finish it off by using a heat gun on it again and it will cast the material so that it hardens.

    And there you go! For much less money you can have your own unique vinyl toy that doubles as a USB drive!

    Edit: I forgot to mention a few things. Other figures can also easily be used as your base. I'd highly recommend Super7 and other similar soft vinyl companies like Gargamel and Chiba Group for more unique designs for your base. Also, if you're into anime/games at all, you can easily use a full sized Nendoroid, but the process would be a little different as you'd be cutting non-hollow hard plastic instead, but the process would be much easier as you could simply glue the USB parts in. I also found a USB stick that meets all of the criteria for this that is quite cheap as well in SanDisk's Cruzer Fit series. But go crazy people, the possibilities are endless!
u/Thyrias · 2 pointsr/civic


The best way, in my opinion, is to pick up an inexpensive and small USB thumb drive (as opposed to using a phone or ipod) and simply load it up with .wma or .mp3 files. Those are the only two I know for certain it will support.

The advantages to this method are that it is cheap, it minimizes wires and devices in the vehicle, and USB flash drives are extremely hardy devices that can be left in the car year round.

While the car is off plug in the flash drive. After the flash drive is inserted, turn the car on and keep pressing the Source button on the steering wheel until the USB icon is shown on the iMID. The music should begin playing automatically.

The following is primarily intended towards vehicles equipped with the factory navigation & premium audio system and requires a fundamental understanding of Windows/Mac/Linux:
You can organize the folders, subfolders and the songs in the folders however you like, but the directory sorting on the Civic's audio system can be a bit unusual.
For example, if you put 3 files or folders on the drive named B, C and D and plug it into the Civic they will show up as B, C, and D in that order. However, if you later add a file or folder on the flash drive named A and plug it back into the Civic, you will see the files/folders sorted as B, C, D, A. This becomes problematic when you have a few hundred songs or folders and want a specific track. There is a program you can download to rewrite the directory structure on the flash drive and have them be re-sorted alphabetically but its far easier to simply put them on the Flash drive in alphabetical order in the first place. If you mass copy several hundred folders from your PC/Mac to the Flash drive it should, by default, copy them in alphabetical order preventing you from having to manually copy it all over and still have the nav screen sort the folders and/or tracks alphabetically.

u/NecroFriedChicken · 2 pointsr/cordcutters

I would recommend using this OTA DVR between your Cable box and tv (or xbox one) and a USB stick or USB hard drive, Any type of USB storage is needed for the DVR function. (it can hold up to 2TB max per drive)

Once your cable is gone, you can attach an antenna to it and continue to use the DVR with your xbox one for Over the Air channels with the xbox one guide.

Or you can get something like This TV Tuner stick for your PC and connect your Cable box to it and record shows on to your PC.

If we stack the computers so they are flat against each other (the closest linear packing we can achieve) we get 20,000 miles / 1' = 106 million Zune Z3 databanks. This works out to approximate 600 gigabytes of data. This would fit in the horribly expensive, one terrabyte Kingston Datatraveler:

So... yes.

UNLESS we can put computers side-by-side. (20,000 miles is a unit of length, not volume). This Scientific American article puts the human brain data storage at approximately 2.5 petabytes (2*10^15 bytes):

If we put the Zune Z3 databanks in 4000 "columns" (for a total width of 4.6 miles) we can fit 2.5 petabytes, which is significantly more than any modern flash drive.

In fact, storing the 2.5 petabytes on a single system would require the 20 pB Titan supercomputer that debuted 2 years ago:

TL;DR: Yes if it is a single file column of machines, no if you actually have enough machines to store a human brain (which is 4.6 miles wide x 20,000 miles long).

SanDisk Ultra Fit 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive, or similar, if you have a USB 3.0 connection; SanDisk Cruzer Fit CZ33 64GB USB 2.0, or similar, if not. Easy to leave in place without worrying about destroying the drive or port. I've had good experience with the SanDisk line of micro USB thumb-drives. I have one plugged in to my dash in the truck, another in a portable radio, and a third in a netbook. No issues. I use them to hold music mainly; but video, documents, pics, etc do just fine for storage/retrieval. You could go with portable HDD if you need a ton more room, they work for the same application(s) you just cannot plug it in and forget the way you can the micro thumb-drives.

You could get away with the same application on an SD card, though for video you will want to check and see what SD bus speed your rig supports. The latest, UHS II, has throughput comparable to USB 3.0 thumbdrives/HDDs.

If you are thinking of trying to load games on an external device you will want to look at external SSD's. They have the best throughput based on your available connection type (3.0, C, Thunderbolt). USB 3.0 SSD's have about 4x the transfer rate of 3.0 HDDs. They are rather pricey though.

Much like a Steam login, the owned game is attached to the account used, I believe; though I've not attempted to add another account to my OUYA. Will update when I test it out. As far as killer apps, here's my list of apps I can think of:

Before we start, I'd greatly advise you buy a USB Drive (32gb or 64gb). You can install games and store game ROMs and video on it. 8gb will not be enough, trust me.


  • Crunchyroll streaming for Anime and Asian Drama lovers.
  • XBMC: Media center that can play just about any audio file, video file, DVD ISO, and it also has plug-ins for YouTube, Twitch, 1Channel (for movie/TV show streaming) and a LOT more. XBMC essentially has its own ecosystem of add-ons for media. Well worth looking into IMO.
    • Pro tip: the version downloadable from the official website is better than the one currently posted to the OUYA store.
  • Netflix (Unofficial): You can finds and side-load the apk for Netflix and it streams in high quality. I love it.
  • Twitch: Self explanatory. Watch game streams. Good times.


  • Snes9X (SNES) and the ".emu" emulators (NES, Master Drive, Gameboy, etc.) are all made by the same dev. They are all free. He added a cool feature that can make the OUYA sync to a Wii Remote or Wii U Pro Controller. You can also set custom keymappings and visual styles.

  • I also bought SuperGNES, which is prettier and way simpler to use, but I can't map controls with it and it has to authenticate via internet to reactivate the paid features.
  • FPse (PlayStation 1): This one I recommend buying. It's well worth it and a great quality emulator. It has tons of features and, since you can link a PS3 controller wirelessly, it's way satisfying to play with an official controller.
  • Mupen64 (N64): This one takes some tinkering to get it running smoothly but it's a solid emulator.
  • PPSSPP (PSP, unofficial app): Tested it myself. It sadly can't smoothly upscale the graphics so when running smoothly it will look like a stretched PSP but it's still satisfying to play with a PS3 controller.


  • TowerFall Ascension: By far one of the must-haves on OUYA, this chaotic, 4-player game was the first exclusive to put OUYA on the map, games-wise.
  • Too Many Me: This game. Is so fun. It is a great platformer with an awesome art style and fun gameplay. It's available to try before purchasing.
  • Final Fantasy III: This game was well worth the money for me. It is a classic game that was only released in the U.S. for Nintendo DS, and smartphones at the time of OUYA's release. The OUYA was the first TV console release and it is such classic RPG fun.

  • Honorable mentions go to Whispering Willows, Neverending Nightmares, Amazing Frog?, You Don't Know Jack, The Cave, DubWars, Knightmare Tower, BombSquad, and so many others I probably can't think of. These are only the games I have played. The other high-rated games in the store are pretty great too.
u/BADDINOROX99 · 2 pointsr/PlaystationClassic

definitely get yourself one I'd recommend target using the cartwheel deal from their app so you only end up paying 25 bucks mod it as for a USB that works I can guarantee this one SanDisk Cruzer Fit CZ33 64GB USB... I've been using it since day one of modding my ps classic and if you want a 2 player experience you can even mod it to support OTG I've installed over 100 games and testing them including dino crisis 1 and 2, parasite Eve 1 they run great. for price it's at right now you can't go wrong with a PS classic

u/sneakp07 · 2 pointsr/Xenoblade_Chronicles

Any pack will speed up loading of the game, but the basic is probably the most substantial of them all.

Also, you don't need a hard drive, a simple USB drive will work. Use a 64GB USB 2.0 drive. Compatible with the Wii U and what I currently have in the back of my system. Also, it's a super small drive, basically plug it in and forget about it. Currently around $20. Anyone with a Wii U should get this drive, very cheap and provides tons of space.

u/Shrimp_guy · 2 pointsr/miniSNESmods

You just need this And of course a USB drive, then bam you are set. You could get a USB that's small like this and then it's not intrusive at all

u/nvmax · 2 pointsr/EtherMining

with mining your going to have a rude awakening lol, I am a programmer by trade and profession, I use linux myself though I will tell you after building dozens of rigs, and owning several myself, windows is the easiest for mining unfortunately, easier to maintain and easier to fix when shit goes wrong.

Though to each their own and I wont push you into windows if you dont want to, though when you go into linux and you cant seem to achieve the same hash rate as windows and have a hell of a time getting it there if you can, you may fall back to windows anyways lol.

Though to answer your question, windows doesnt like to run on usb's at all there is only a handful of usb's it will or can be installed on and be useable that way, you need to find a USB that supports UEFI and is basically a SSD on thumbdrive.

I only know of 2 drives that do this:

Kingston HyperX


Sandisk Extreme

Hope this helps.

u/jonathanbernard · 2 pointsr/linux

Not necessarily. Get this one: SanDisk Extreme USB 3.0.

I've done exactly what OP is talking about with this drive, no issues. Actually, it was a speed up compared to the magnetic disk drives I was using before.

u/PFthroaway · 2 pointsr/gadgets

My old, reliable 4GB PNY Attaché USB 2.0 flash drive is 100 MB too small for the Windows 10 Technical Preview x64 install iso to be written to it fully with the Novicorp WinToFlash program I use. I like to dual/multi-boot, and I figure it's time to come into the USB 3.0 world with a new bootable flash drive so I can install operating systems with it.

However, it appears that most newer flash drives are "fixed" drives, meaning that I can't boot from them. My motherboard has USB 3.0 ports and also supports booting from USB 3.0 drives, so there's not a problem other than finding a flash drive from which I can boot to install operating systems.

I was looking at this Sandisk Extreme 64GB flash drive, and found this comment on it, which deterred me from purchasing it. As it turns out, the vast majority of recent drives are exactly the same way. I already have an SSD, so I don't need a fixed drive, I need a removable one.

Does anyone know of a specific bootable USB 3.0 drive with 32-64GB of space and read speeds over 100MB/s, preferably closer to the linked drive's 245MB/s? Write speed isn't as much of a consequence, as it'll only be written to when I change operating systems. 190 MB/s write speed like the SanDisk one would be great, though.

Thank you.

u/Degru · 2 pointsr/pcmasterrace

The one I have. Speeds are as promised, with 4k read/write of 10MB/s over USB3 and 6MB/s over USB2. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get Windows 8.1 To Go to boot from it, but Linux works beautifully with SSD-like boot times, even over USB2.

I have this configured with a 15GB Linux partition that I can boot any computer from, and a 45GB NTFS data partition that stores all the rest of the stuff.

I should point out that this isn't an SSD, so it isn't really recommended to run an OS off of it due to the memory not being designed for it. SSD memory is quite a bit more durable. If you want something like this that will primarily be used to run a portable OS, I recommend investing some more money and getting a larger one with an SSD controller and higher-quality memory.

EDIT: Get the 64GB version, since speeds decrease pretty drastically with the 32GB and 16GB models.

/u/Darrkman's (sorry ahead of time lol) recommendation is spot on. The Spigen case he recommends is definitely very nice looking and provides good protection. While it was not asked of you, I still will have to recommend
This gadget as well. 64GB model obviously. Super cheap, but feels like I paid a lot more.It snaps in place into your USB port securely so you don't have to worry about disconnects, and it is extremely portable.

I'll skip the often said and repeated great features you probably know of ( Multi-Window is an awesome feature. I love the chat-heads functionality that FB Messenger has, so being able to replicate it with other apps is a plus. The IR Blaster is an awesome feature. If you pair it with this app you'll find that you'll be hunting around your living/dining room a lot less for that one remote. Screen recording on the device is smooth as butter at 60FPS, 4K/1080p quality.

You'll hear a lot of complaints regarding software performance and it is a serious issue right now. That ultimately depends on the type of user you are though, and how you will use the S6. If you like to root and you opt in for the S6, hope you have an older firmware. If you do, cancel any OTA's, and look up the procedure. There is very little development for this phone. In some areas there is literally none. If you will not root, update ASAP, the performance will be greatly improved. When Android M is released for the S6 the supposed RAM and software issues will supposedly be fixed. I don't have the source for that statement though, so take it with a grain of salt. I could go on longer, but I don't want to write a college assignment sized amount of content here and I'm lazy as hell.

tl;dr: Get it if you love Samsung devices, and do not mind a possible caveat in RAM management. Do not get it if you like being able to fully customize your phone.

(edit: redundant line derp.)

Could I use this and force Spotify to download files to external storage (in this case the the flash drive connected to the phone?). I'm not sure I completely understand that role of this versus phones that have MicroSD slots.

If that's possible, then that's amazing, I wouldn't mind plugging in the flash drive while driving so Spotify doesn't use data to steam music. Can someone confirm?

I have been thinking about that! So I will be getting this flash drive for transferring thing on the go and to carry media if I need to:

I will also be getting this mouse for on the go productivity as it folds flat:


I already have an OTG cable and plan to use an Xbox 360 controller for games.

I was thinking about getting an HDMI/power adapter but the last time I got that (MHL)for a tablet I never used it. Also I have a chrome cast so that should do the trick.

That is my list so far. I will have to look I to that Microsoft continuum thing! I wonder if it will work though :/

u/shakenbak3 · 2 pointsr/PickAnAndroidForMe

As a 6P owner, I'ma little biased but all that put aside, I came from a Note 3 so I had the same gripes as you: No expandable storage, no removable battery, etc...Here my solutions to those problems. For the most part the 6P battery will get me through a day of heavy use pretty easily (listening to spotify, watching videos, texting, emailing and whatnot). Just in case I always carry around a portable power bank. As for expandable storage, I would like to point out with Google's photo app, you receive unlimted storage for high quality photos, however, don't quote me on this, but at some point I believe past 1080P it starts to eat into a 10GB limit. I advise using a USB stick for external storage, it's small, portable, and overall very convenient. Best of luck making your decision! It's a tough one! If you have any questions about the 6P just let me know!

Edit: If you are strictly looking just to offload files to get more storage and not transfer them to a computer via usb, this Dongle gives you more storage and it costs less than the previous link. If you do want to move pictures and videos, you can always buy an adapter.

I mean I'm sure the flash drive that I used Windows Readyboost on 10 years ago and later ended up using as swap space on my router is probably toast, I still have it in a box but haven't tried using it in years. We're talking about buying a brand new drive and writing once, though.

I last wrote to it on 2/8/16, turning it into a Windows 10 install drive. The installer still works and I was able to open up the text files just fine and the text was still valid. I ran Chkflsh though and the whole drive passed the read test except for the last block on the drive was red. I tried reformatting the drive fresh and then it passed chkflsh fully, so maybe the drive provisioned the bad block.

This is on a Patriot Xporter XT Boost 8GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive, and it still gets 29.92 MB/s read speed and 12.10 MB/s write speed.

This benchmark from 2008 on the drive had it getting "an average read speed of 22MB per second, and an average write speed of 11.2MB per second" for the 32 GB version.

Since this drive is so old and has been through hell (I've left it in my pants pocket and ran it through the washer and drier, and the whole enclosure falls off now), I wouldn't use this drive for anything (all of my other drives are faster USB 3.0 ones and higher capacity), but if someone needed to I would suggest formatting it as ZFS or archiving in another error-correcting format.

Compare this to my 5 TB SMR drive I bought for archiving 2.5 years ago that died last year...and my WD Black2 drive where the hard drive portion died shortly after a year but the SSD portion is still going strong. And my laptop's hard drive that died right after the 1 year warranty was up.

You should expect flash storage to last an order of magnitude longer than mechanical drives, outside of heavy R/W use cases. And they are much more resilient to physical trauma. Flash drives are usually still read-able after failure, they just can't be written to reliably. The block failing at the end of my drive could probably have been avoided with some over-provisioning. buying a 30 GB flash drive (32 GB flash storage with 2 GB provisioned) may be a better bet for avoiding these failed blocks, but again this issue was likely causes due to a high number of writes over the years. I would avoid your cheap plastic sandisk cruzers that you can find for a great price in those multi-packs. I wouldn't be surprised if the solder joints in your sandisk drives went out and your actual flash memory is still just fine inside of them. You may want to get a sturdy drive like this one:

It is shielded from x-rays. It has a 5 year warranty, so the idea that it would only last for 1 or 2 years doesn't really add up.

Unless you can recommend a better storage media?

u/ChaoticVegan · 2 pointsr/DarkNetMarkets

Does it give you some specific error? I bought this one and it works fine, though I did have to do 2 steps off the instructions to get it to work.

u/recitegod · 2 pointsr/hadoop

Class 10 but it does not really matter. Once you run them 24/7 for 12 weeks, they get physically corrupted on the block. Not fun (you throw them away). I got the good ones, a combination of samsung, memorex, sony, patriot, they all fail at some point. I would highly recommend to create a usb mounting point like so:

You don't build such cluster to achieve anything but learning. You stretch every aspect of this cluster design (power, eth0, throughput, writing on the card, interface, everything) and you will definitely have so "gotcha" moment as you troubleshoot along the way. Highly recommend. Building a 5 nodes cluster is better than 3. Nine nodes are overkill but still fun.

If I had to redo it all over the gain, I would get a 4gb pack:

and x9

I believe I will be able to get a 2mb/sec sustain throughput on Spark with this sort of setup, not sure, possibly more. Got to try. Why the usb3? I image these on the laptop so it is much faster than USB2. If not, a USB2 keys will suffice. More than 32gb of storage per node is useless.

FUCKYOUINYOURFACE is right, even with this setup, it is a slow as shit cluster, but you absolutely control this environment in every dimensions you can think of. And that is awesome in my book.

u/allicinlover · 2 pointsr/solotravel

As a fellow photographer, I'd say

  1. ditch D3400 user manual and read up ahead of time, or take a copy of the pdf on your phone

  2. Make sure you've got good quality SD cards, esp if you're only bringing two - it's a horrible feeling when they fail and can be hard to replace depending on where you're going. I always go with SanDisk, because I've never had a problem with them getting errors while I'm on a trip

  3. I get wanting to back up/store your photos, but I'd encourage you to consider a few large capacity thumbdrives instead of the external drive. They are small in size, you can have 2 copies of each picture in case one fails/gets lost and store them in two different places to guard against theft, and you can buy waterproof ones. I carry 4 of these split onto two keyrings (one in my pocket and one in my luggage in the room where I'm staying) and am never going back.

    Bonus tip: bringing photo gear quickly piles up a lot of wall chargers - to get around this, I invested in one wall adapter with surge protection and multiple outlets, and then plug my laptop into that, and most of the usb electronics through my laptop. This cuts down on the number of wall warts and adapters, so you motly end up with one adapter + some cords.

I am running my Roms off a 128gb USB drive. It's a feature they added official support for a few weeks ago. USB drives are cheaper than SD cards, and it keeps your games separate from your setup, which makes things easier if you need something up and need to reinstall or something like that.

u/JeffGreenTraveled · 2 pointsr/RetroPie

If you have a little more cash to splash I would add some sort of USB storage into your build. Even if you don't have a ton of roms (PS1 or Dosbox or DC), adding roms back onto your SD card if something goes wrong is a time consuming and obnoxious thing. Plus you won't lose your saves if using a USB.

In summation, I like having the game files/metadata and the RetroPie data separate.

Edit: I don't have it, but I've seen this USB recommended often.

u/irishtexmex · 2 pointsr/theNvidiaShield

I went with a really fast USB3 thumb drive--kinda the best of both worlds.

Your R/W speeds are going to be significantly slower with a microSD card compared to a USB3 thumbdrive or SSD. I chose this thumbdrive over the SSD because it's physically smaller than an SSD+powered adapter.

It's worked fabulously for me so far. It's plugged directly into the back of the Shield where it's 100% unnoticeable, and if I need to use more than 1 USB port for anything else I can always plug a hub into the remaining USB port.

But I would definitely go with either a USB thumbdrive or SSD over a microSD.

u/HGwells628 · 2 pointsr/gpdwin

The Samsung Fit Drive doesn't get hot unless it's under heavy load, unlike the other options in the same form factor. Micro SD cards are another matter though. Like others have said, the one on the WIN reads slowly, and goes to sleep when it doesn't think it's being used, so you'll want to use a program that keeps it awake if you want to store games on it or something. It will decrease your card's lifetime a little though.

u/ItsMorkinTime · 2 pointsr/zelda

I guess some people don't have the storage for it? Or they want the assurance that they still have their games without hassle of re-claiming their account if something happens to their system? Some people also have slow internet.

For me, storage isn't an issue. I have a physically tiny 128gb flash drive inserted in my Wii U, which gives me plenty of storage.. and it wasn't exactly expensive, check the link to see.

Not only should it likely load faster from that than a disk, because it's essentially Solid State, but I don't have to wait for a shop to open up to pick up a physical copy, nor wait for the ridiculously slow delivery services in my area to bring me my package sometime in the late afternoon or evening. With any luck, I should be able to play Friday morning, unless the download servers are simply too bogged down.. that's why I'm kinda hoping for a pre-load.

I'm using a 128GB Samsung Fit, which is pretty low profile. It doesn't stick out as far as a wireless mouse dongle.

The only reason i'm using it over an SD card is that it's 128GB, and the largest SD card I have is 16GB.

I could pick up a similarly sized SD card for about $50 (which is about half the cost of the machine I'd be putting it into, lol) if it would perform better. I wasn't sure that there would be much performance difference on this hardware and I already had the stick, so that's what I planned to go with.

Firstly, not to knock whitebox builds (I used to go this route), but have you seen the 12-bay R510? You can get the whole shebang with trays for the same price as just that case you're looking at. Yes, it's only half the bays, but do you really need 24 from the get-go? Just something to consider. I've got one myself, and



  1. Mirrored is best for data integrity. Spinny disks won't tend to fail at the same time because their failures aren't necessarily time- or operation-bound. Failures are more or less random than caused by any one thing in particular.
  2. That's a good question. I was always under the impression that you could not expand your arrays.
  3. Expanders are fine, it's the hardware RAID you want to avoid with ZFS. If you go hardware RAID you might as well skip ZFS and just present the array as a device extent via iSCSI (or FC if you're feeling edgy).
  4. A) You don't need a ton of compute unless you're doing lots of computationally heavy operations like deduplication or weird, inefficient compression, so don't feel like you need super beefy CPUs, but on the other hand, more GT/s never hurt anybody... Look for boards with several PCIe x4 - x16 slots to support later add-ons like 10GbE cards (which is where the GT/s comes into play). If you're just sharing files, even a crappy old Core2 would do just fine. B) It should be noted that with ZFS you don't need to use iSCSI at all if you just want to share files, since you could just create SMB shares right in FreeNAS. It all depends on whether or not you actually need to access this array at the block level from your compute nodes (I'm guessing you don't). On the note of separating compute from storage, I also do this, so I agree with your line of thinking there.
  5. I would recommend a server board that supports registered ECC, e.g. something that supports Xeon 5600 / E5 series. Registered RAM is far cheaper and much more plentiful, plus you increase your total capacity limit. It's a win-win-win.
  6. ZFS always has a ZIL, but by default it's in the same place as the rest of the data. What you're referring to is externalizing it from the array (typically referred to as a SLOG), which isn't a bad idea if you're looking for additional write performance. What you'll want to be conscientious about is hosting it on a mirror of SSDs if you do decide to move it off the array in order to maintain redundancy. In short, ZIL and SLOG are the same thing, but are called such based on where it's located.


  7. Are you referring to backing up the laptop or the pool?
  8. Just mirror your FreeNAS boot drive. Since you're only using it for file storage I would actually suggest a pair of these 64GB Cruzer Fit drives instead of dedicated disks for a few different reasons.

    Btw, do yourself a favor and stay away from WD Green drives. Yes, you can make them work, but it's easier and more often than not just simply a better option to go for the Reds (or some nice HGSTs) instead. I've got many of them (Reds) that have been purring away for years in my R510 that haven't missed a beat.

Many drives have faster read/write speed in higher storage models. So even you don’t need all the storage, choosing a larger one may still be worth it.

This one for example, is 300 MB/s read speed for 128 GB ones and above, and 200 MB/s for smaller ones.

This may seem eye-rolly, but with this particular thing we are all doing you actually for once in the history of Windows need to remove the thumbdrive the 'proper' way. You know that "Safely Remove Hardware" thing. Honestly or it can mess with your drive causing a lot of these C8 errors.

Reading your original post I'm unclear on something. Are you removing the thumbstick from the USB Hub while your SNESc is powered on? That is a big no no, and you could get C7 or C2 errors doing that. Just so you know there is nothing wrong, removing any USB drive and then booting up your SNESc will allow the little console to load up the preloaded games. That's normal and comes from the way hakchi is flashed onto the SNESc. It's done on purpose.

Below is the drive I use. From my research it has the fastest read times on the market in it's class and for the cost. It's another expense, but maybe give it a go if you can.

Something like that would be ideal for form factor, anyway.

It's important to distinguish between the file system and the device. Currently your sd card may be perfectly fine (or may not), it's just the file system that got corrupted.

If you are running root on a usb device, and you lose power unexpectedly, you may still have a corrupted filed system.

And, you are of course correct, if the sd itself does crap out (and they do, I've done it) you can simply fire up a new /boot and keep on keeping on.

No friends or relatives that might have a drive you can temporarily borrow?

16GB drives are available for ~£6 on Amazon UK, or ~$7 on Amazon US. Most supermarkets carry them these days as well so you may find an 8GB for less.

You can also burn a DVD using the media creation tool if that's an option for you, but a USB drive will serve other purposes like handy document backup and file transfer in future as well.

Grab an OTG usb adapter and a small 16gb usb drive ( though 8 gbs should honestly suffice, unless you're going to go haywire and add everything you can to it).

I currently have a total of 524 games on mine, for NES, SNES, Sega Genesis and Arcade games, which is all I'm currently interested in. I've only used up 2.5gbs and that is with the save states also being saved on the usb host, as opposed to the NAND memory on the console.


This is what mine looks like btw. I've shared these links before.

Works like a charm, though some people had issues working with theirs. Not sure if their USB drives are drawing too much power to work properly, or if the OTG hub is not functioning well.


I bought mine on Amazon and actually bought the two pack, just to be sure I would receive the correct right angle unit. 2 for 7.99 wasn't a bad deal. :\^]

Get a thumbnail USB stick. They barely stick out at all.

But to answer your question the FreeNAS boot drive needs to be untouched and it's own volume as it boots into memory. You can always switch over to an SSD. But most people would consider that a waste of a good SSD and SATA ports. But if you have an old 32GB or 64GB SSD lying around, you could always use that as a FreeNAS boot drive instead of a USB stick.

u/gfixler · 1 pointr/geek

Not OP, but I use OMV on an old laptop. The OS itself is installed on a low-profile 16GB USB. It has Serviio and Plex running. On the TV side, I've got a RPi3 running LibreElec (Kodi).

If you go the Linux route, the OS can be installed on a removable USB leaving the HDD to be fully utilized. Also, makes it easier to move your setup to another physical machine if/when needed.

u/twelveparsex · 1 pointr/AirForce
u/bstock · 1 pointr/homelab

If you're fine with giving up the two bays to raid up some OS drives, I'd agree that's 'safer' since they'd be mirrored. That said, I've run VMWare on my 610's for years from a thumb drive without issue. Worst case is that you'd have to re-install ESXi on a fresh USB drive and import your VM's, but you could keep a backup USB drive with ESXi installed to help mitigate downtime.

FYI I like to use these drives since they don't stick out far so no chance of them getting snapped off or whatever.

u/blueberrypoptart · 1 pointr/chromeos

Some people replace drive with a larger 128gb one (will void warranty).

You can also use the option of a USB flash drive; there are several tiny ones that you can leave permanently plugged in. They only protrude by ~.75cm.

I think an SD/microSD card is also an option. A standard sized SD card will stick out, but you might be able to use a microSD->SD carad adapter and chop off the back half of the adapter to leave it mounted.

Since you mentioned you're using it for farming and not more intensive gameplay, the slower speeds of a USB stick or SD card might not matter to you.

See the customer images to see how these things look plugged in:

u/deletecode · 1 pointr/crypto

That sounds very cool, for sure. It looks like the payment stuff is already being put on phones (google wallet). While a phone is nice, it is far from being tamper proof given that it can execute foreign code.

The screen would be a nice thing to have on a device like this - like a direct interface. Another thing you could use the screen for is to receive a private message to the device, so it could act like a pager/text messenger.

Credit card size seems possible - either right now, or soon. The processor would definitely fit, and a metal back could act as a heat sink. The batteries would be hard to fit. For some crypto operations, it may be necessary to be plugged into power.

If this has a USB interface, it seems the device would be at least as thick as the USB port, just so the USB port doesn't break off. Something like this.

This made me think of another idea: have a little card you plug into your phone (like a SIM card) which can do public key crypto, and stores its own key. The phone could provide power and a screen. The device would ensure it is unique and do two-factor authentication.

I'm not totally sure the payment stuff would be necessary any time soon, if you have a normal bank with fraud detection (I think this works fairly well). However, it could be immensely useful for Bitcoin transactions: it could store the wallet's private key and sign the transactions. That appears to be 512 bit ECC. There might be a lot of interest there as well - they are definitely into this sort of thing. The device would have to be extremely reliable, though, since if you lose your key, you lose money.

High performance flash drives are around there, but not common flash drives. If you don't believe me, look at the reviews from amazon. Find any cheap, common flash drive and look at its performance.

u/scarface910 · 1 pointr/WTF

Flash drives are flash memory, meaning they dont use a spinning disc drive like harddrives do. Why it has a less chance of failing is because if you were to drop a flash drive, vs a harddrive, the flash drive will win.

I remember dropping my 500gb portable harddrive just 2 feet from the ground, after that I found out that I just bought a 100 dollar brick/paperweight.

Thats why you hear people buying Solid state drives(bigger versions of flash memory) to partition their Operating systems to it, so that if the regular harddrives were to fail, they would still have an operating computer.

You can drop 20 bucks on a 32gb flash drive if you wish

EDIT: Heres a free option: Dropbox

Dropbox is "cloud" storage, meaning anything you put in dropbox can be accessed from any computer you log into. Its very similar to emails, as all your emails is on cloud storage, dropbox can be used as a direct storage device that can be used from any device(smartphone, home computer, work computer, etc.) They have a 2gb version you can sign up for, and its completely free. And seeing that you have pictures, it should take a while before you fill up that 2gb of space.

Are you sure there isn't something else going on with your system? I've used one of these for 3 years now with 0 issues.

u/Sata-Man · 1 pointr/freenas

Following up here a few hours later - I installed FreeNAS on another USB stick (same brand and size as previous) and ran Rufus to make the USB drive non-bootable. It completed making the drive non-bootable and now I plug the USB drive back in to use it and it's also dead and not detected by device manager.

Another data point - I used Rufus to install FreeNAS on a 3rd USB stick (old 4GB junk drive, unknown brand) and successfully made it non-bootable again using Rufus and I am able to use it again.

This is leading me to believe that it was an issue with the USB drives themselves.

For anyone who comes across this thread in the future, these are the USB drives I have and are no longer recognized by Windows, so I'd recommend staying away from them. I already have 2 more USB drives on their way, which are from a more reputable brand.

I usually create a USB stick with Linux Live USB Creator ( I download the ISO for Linux Mint 15 with the Cinnamon Desktop ( I use a 32 Gig Sandisk Cruzer Fit ( It's only $20.49 on Amazon. I create the normal 4 gig persistence file using the Linux Live Creator, but then follow these instructions to utilize the full 32 gigs for persistence ( The instructions are for Ubuntu, but Linux Mint is Ubuntu based, so it works fine. After than, I install any apps I use like Chrome, etc. I have run into problems before doing updates to applications. As long as you don't do updates to your apps via the software center, you should be fine. You shouldn't run updates in persistence mode. The risk (of corrupting your drive) isn't worth the reward usually. Good luck!

u/Redditron-2000-4 · 1 pointr/prius

I did in a previous car, but now I have entune in my Prius C 3, so I have my phone plugged in to the USB to charge and stream pandora.

If you want to go USB route it works great, and I recommend the tiny Sandisk Cruzer Fit, they barely stick out an have been very reliable for me.

u/Darkcheops · 1 pointr/EDC

I'm pretty sure as long as you let them dry out water won't hurt flash drives too bad. I know I've sent mind through the wash on more than one occasion and it still works just fine. Just get one that's more "open" and doesn't have everything enclosed in a plastic case that will let water in and trap it there if you're really worried about it. Just getting caught in the rain pretty much anything should be fine though.

This is the one I've sent through the wash on at least two occasions. I've since replaced it with one of these because the case and keychain part didn't hold up well being in my pocket although the drive itself is still perfectly fine.

u/Iggyhopper · 1 pointr/smashbros

I actually loaded Melee on one of these Kingston drives and it works ok.

u/TehFence · 1 pointr/mildlyinteresting

Making large USB sticks isn't that hard. It's just a matter of how many chips you can stick on a circuit board. Look how damn small a microsd card is. You can easily stick 6 of them into the case of a regular-sized USB stick. That's 768GB already. Sure, technically it's not that easy, but the real reason you don't see 1TB USB sticks is, that they are just damn expensive. This thing is almost a thousand dollars:

Besides that, USB sticks just aren't the kind of thing where this much space is needed.

u/MrDave19 · 1 pointr/photography

If a hard drive is too big for you, try one of these instead.

u/HahaHallo · 1 pointr/talesfromtechsupport

Not getting one of these?

u/differentiallity · 1 pointr/theydidthemath

For $915 each, you could get [1 TB flash drives] ( I would assume that you could fit at least 20 of these in the space of 1 4 TB 3.5" hard drive. That would mean you could get 20 683 TB, or 13.660 Petabytes. Now, the latency would be terrible with a tesla as the google fiber would transfer at the speed of light in glass, which is [about 200,000 km/s] ( Distance from NY to LA is 2776 mi according to google maps which is 3663 km. 3663 km / 200,000 km/s = 0.018 seconds to transfer one bit. So for the tesla, you get a latency of 41 hours but a data transfer rate of 13.66PB 10^6 GB/(41h*3600s) = 92.55 GB/s. Google fiber has a latency of 0.018 s but a data transfer rate of 1GB/s. So, you would get a 92.55 times greater data rate with the tesla, but if you decided you had to change your data, it would take a long time to turn your tesla around.

u/jessej421 · 1 pointr/wiiu

I would get some external storage. I've heard the BOTW update alone takes up all the remaining space on the 8GB model.

I would just get a 64GB slim USB flash drive. Like this one for $13:

Another option is if you have an old laptop lying around, you can remove the 2.5" HDD and put it in a $8 enclosure with a y cable. That's what I did and it's been working great for 4 years. Here's the enclosure I am using (includes the y cable):

u/vorin · 1 pointr/infiniti

Only phones with Android 5.0 Lollipop officially support outputting audio through USB, and I have my doubts that that your stereo could receive that.

Otherwise, connecting an android phone via USB will only allow you to play music stored on the phone, and only if the head unit accepts the MTP (Media Transfer Protocol,) which is what all Android phones use since version 4.x (Ice Cream Sandwich.)

Older android phones show up as Mass Storage Devices, which your head unit almost certainly supports, but this is no more useful that just plugging in a super small flash drive into that USB slot, like this one or this.

u/magic8ball88 · 1 pointr/CarAV

A flash drive should be fine in that temperature. Basically any large manufacturer will be fine for flash memory. Sandisk makes nice drives though, one of these low profile ones would be great for car use. If 64GB isn't enough they also make 128gb ones, but they aren't low profile.

u/bwump · 1 pointr/mac

I bought a tiny (physical size) usb flash drive. Called a Sandisk fit. 64gb for under £20. Sure it sticks out a little but i just keep it in all the time. Its not big enough to snag on anything and it doesnt affect fitting in the sleeve i have for it.

u/mr_mooses · 1 pointr/MINI

I think she could organize music in a music folder which the mini would be able to read as a normal flash drive. She then could also remotely manage that data from her smartphone ie adding/deleting music. The mini might not like that while it's plugged in though, and you might have to remove and reinsert it so that the mini re-indexes it.

It should work as a regular usb connection, with the added benefit of the wifi sharing managment.

IMO I'd get something like this and just load it up and forget about it. It's super small so it won't get caught or stuck on anything.

u/crackness · 1 pointr/techsupport

That's probably as close as you're going to get. Chances are its impossible to find exactly what youre looking for because USB ports are more valuable on a laptop than not having having to replace your HDD/ssd for additional space.

If you're feeling brave enough, you can try and make your own out of one of those, but it probably won't be easy.

BTW I'd love to see what you're talking about with regards to the microsd gizmo that fits in the wider half of the USB slot.

u/HerculesKabuterimon · 1 pointr/wiiu

So here's what I got in limited play so far.

This one works pretty well so far, I just loaded the game though, and played DKC: TF. No level lag, it loaded fine. (maybe even faster than it normally does) and it transferred the 11gbs in around 10 minutes or so I think.

u/AliveThrouDeath · 1 pointr/wiiu

I'd prefer the size of this one.

u/ratherplaydead · 1 pointr/chromeos

and it works amazing. It's more than enough storage for some movies/tv shows and music (if I'm not around wifi)
I've got an Acer C720 (i3 and 4GB of RAM) and the Acer Chromebook 13 (Tegra K1 and 4gigs of RAM) and it's awesome. It's slim enough to easily slip into the sleeves I have and not protrude enough to be caught on anything.

u/SoraHjort · 1 pointr/miniSNESmods

Had to run a benchmark tool since the specs are oddly not online. This USB drive results was between 10 and 20 MB/s for reading, averaging about 13MB/s for files above 256KB.

Writing was to 0.02MB/s 4 MB/S, again averaging about 3MB/S for files above 256KB

The oddity of the speed changes past that makes me question the benchmark tool since it takes a cliff dive after that. Running now on a different port. Still, at the higher file size rates I would think that would be quick enough.

u/thecheat1 · 1 pointr/Toyota

I use this flash drive in my Tundra and it works great. It easily holds all of my music and it's SUPER tiny. However, when Windows recognizes it you only have two options to format it in, exFAT and NTFS. Neither of these work with the Tundra's Entune system.

Here's the fix

Click on the picture to download the program, then format your USB drive to FAT32 using that program and bam, it should now work with Entune.

Keep in mind there are some pretty stupid restraints on file names, number of folders, etc. so it's best to just dump your music in there and let the Entune system detect the tags and sort it itself.

u/slacka123 · 1 pointr/linux

You do realize all of the "value" USB 3.0 sticks perform worse than a quality 2.0 flash drive? A good quality USB needs a SSD controller, high quality NAND, and a good 3.0 controller. If a manufacturer skimps on any of these, the end product will suck.

Here's a good stick that runs just as fast as a SSD because it is essentially a SSD.

u/smexypelican · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

That's... not quite true, $32.96 on Amazon, and 32.99 for USB 3.1. Maybe you found a different version?

u/zigzagjoe · 1 pointr/pcmasterrace

You are misinformed. As fb39ca4 said, any mechanical hard drive (laptop or desktop) can saturate USB2 with ease, unless you are reading many different sections of the disk simultaneously.

Any sata SSD, no matter the age, will saturate USB2. Easily. I have an old, cheap mSata drive on a $7 msata-usb adapter that will deliver 450MB/s (megabytes, not megabits) reads and 150mb/s writes all day long. Read speeds are actually handicapped by USB3 controllers at this point; even the slowest ones (Renesas/NEC under Windows 7) still deliver 250mb/s reads if the drive is capable.

Even the worst USB3 flash drives can easily exceed USB2 speeds in reads, though not in writes. A high end flash drive like the sandisk extreme pro ($31) absolutely smokes USB2, with read speeds of about 200-250MB/s, and writes of about 130-160MB/s.

u/BlueSaber80 · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

Bought one of these last year, slow as hell compared to the Sandisk Cruzer Extreme models. Bought one of these for work and they are insanely fast and I abuse the hell outa the stick and its still going strong over a year. Retractable 4 life!

u/mfact50 · 1 pointr/mac

Well a quick search shows you can get a 500gb harddrive close to a$50 price point. I also know that WD includes a 3 year warranty.

That said, flashdrives are a good option, just keep in mind they can also break if you are a power user (and manufacturer's warranty tend to be shorter). Ones with slider mechanisms are particularly vulnerable but the good thing is data survives slider breakages.

With flashdrives I'd look at either the SanDisk Ultra Fit or the SanDisk Extreme. The first is pretty fast (no matter what you choose, go usb 3.0 with decent read speeds) and is nice and small so can sit in your computer 24/7 (with the sacrifice of some extra power drain) and the second one is super fast. Both come in 64gb options, unsure if you will be able to get anything over 64gb at a $50 price point.

u/odellusv2 · 1 pointr/GameDeals

next time put windows on this and boot through a usb 3.0 port. takes less than 20 minutes to install windows this way.

u/Mirrormn · 1 pointr/Frugal

Samsung SanDisk Extreme USB 3.0. I believe it is advertised at 240 read 195 write 245 read 190 write, and I get pretty close to those speeds in practice for large files. It also has very impressive random 4k performance, so copying lots of small files is way way faster than a cheap USB drive, too. The drive itself is a bit big, but not so much that I've had any problems with it blocking other USB ports to the side when it's plugged in. All in all, a really great USB drive.

TomsHardware review link.

Amazon product link.

Edit: Look at the random 4k writes on this chart. This is what I'm talkin' about. SanDisk is not highest on 4k reads (but is still competitive), but just destroys everything else on 4k writes. Only 2 competitors even get within 1/10 of the SanDisk's 4k write speeds.

u/RotGruenBlau · 1 pointr/raspberry_pi

Agreed, I've used USB 3.0 drives capable of "Read Up To 245MB/s; Write Up To 190MB/s" (SanDisk CZ80) with my Nextcloud setup and the biggest limitation has been the USB 2.0 bus shared with the Ethernet controller. Best throughput I've gotten is around 15-20MB/s (megabytes per second).

I'm wondering if there is any benefit to doing this RAID locally (vs. creating a remote mirror periodically updated via a rsync cron job).

What determines Read/Write speeds?

I wanted to test my new USB 3.0 Sandisk flash drive and just copied my User folder from my SSD because I figured it would be fastest from the SSD, although I know even with a HDD the bottleneck is the flashdrive. At parts of the transfer it will write close to 200 MB/s which Sandisk listed as max, but for a majority of the other time it stays below 20MB/s. Anyone know why this is?

It's definitely plugged into the USB 3.0 port at the front of my R4.

A USB C hub is just to add ports to the newer macs that only have Type-C on the machine itself. Your air, like you said, already has a "normal" USB port (also called full size or Type-A if you're searching around), so you just need a flash drive or hard drive, something like this.

Pick a small battery charger, search for it on amazon:

Get a retractable cable for your charger if you need too (low profile)

JEAN COIN POCKET (on front right pocket)

That gerber fold up knife

RIGHT MOST JEAN STRAP ( was the front right before)


duck tape

Tape planet had the cheapest prices at $1.54 each


Measuring tape. This one has the lowest profile so it doesn't hurt to sit on, 10' is good enough for almost everything


Get sticky notes, I suggest highland brand 3"x3" since it works for nearly everything you might need sticky notes. I suggest getting both, alternate colors by day

Plain yellow:


Also, get a sharpie too. Fine points are good

Alternatively or ultra fine


that's my current setup

Does anyone know if the Gear VR's bottom Micro-USB charging port allows for data pass-through? They make flash drives with Micro-USB plugs on them for pretty cheap these days. 64 gigs is like $20 on Amazon:

u/DarkZyth · 1 pointr/Android

OTG dongles are your friend if you want expandable storage (especially when taking RAW photos and 4K video, etc.). Look on Amazon for OTG MicroSD or OTG storage. They utilize the charging port for storage so it's only good when you want to move files and not a permanent solution like an actual MicroSD slot.

A good one:


u/killerantsfromspace · 1 pointr/galaxynote5

I recently upgraded from a GS4 to the Note 5. I went with the 32GB version. While I never had a huge issue with touchwiz, I decided to try out something new with the new phone and went with the nova launcher and it is awesome. The phone is much snappier and the fingerprint scanner is great. While I can't really compare it directly with the S6 or S7, this phone is great. The S-Pen is great so far, it's better than writing on paper it works so well. As far as storage goes, I think the 32GB is plenty. I currently have all the apps I use, plus all of my text messages from my old phone and still have 18GB free. I also keep a flash drive on my keys for larger games/emulators/movies and haven't had any issues yet. If you need more specifics, a standard picture is about 3.5MB for me, and a selfie is about 1.5MB.

Gaming performance is great compared to the S4, the main game I play is called Crashlands, I used to have slowdowns when there was a lot on the screen at once, not anymore though. I can't really speak to the audio quality as it's not important to me.

Sounds like 64GB is the safer option - you never know what you'll start accumulating.

However, just to toss this out there: I have a 32GB, and keep a small music library (for poweramp) plus movies and other videos on a USB-C OTG flash drive. I just plug it in and access it via ES File Explorer. Swap out music, play a movie right from the drive, etc.

I have a separate OTG drive that I use for TWRP backups. I mount the USB storage in TWRP, do a backup, un-mount, done.

If that sounds like an option for you, these are the drives I bought:

u/iWizardB · 1 pointr/Nexus6P

Kingston is the best option. Don't worry about the "write speed is slow" reviews. 6P has USB 2.0 speed to begin with.

u/Surfac3 · 1 pointr/GooglePixel

Yeah. These are the ones I meant though there are a couple others from different manufacturers that could also work.

Kingston Digital 64GB Data Traveler Micro Duo USB 3C Flash Drive (DTDUO3C/64GB)

Taipove USB3.0 Type-C3.1 High-Speed Transmission USB Flash Drive For Apple's Macbook,Google's Chromebook Pixel, Nokia N1 Tablet Etc (Type-C&USB3.0 Silver32G)

Verbatim 64GB Store 'n' Go Dual USB Flash Drive for USB-C Devices, Blue (99155)

EAGET CU10 USB 3.0 + Type-C 3.1 OTG Flash Drive, Smartphone Pen Drive U Disk for Macbook, OnePlus 2, Google Nexus 5x 6p, Other Cell Phones and Tablet, Water Proof, Shock Resistant, Compact Size-16GB

It seems like you could just dremel off the USB A section as the storage seems to be located between the USB c and USB a plugs. I'm hoping someone comes out with the super micro drives without USB a soon. Like the ones from Samsung and Sandisk that are literally just the USB a plug and a piece of plastic. (Like this Samsung 128GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Fit (MUF-128BB/AM)

I imagine most of them currently have USB a plugs because USB c isn't as prevalent and for transferring files having an a plug on the opposite end is convenient. Sony also makes one (Sony 64GB USB Flash Drive for Type-C Smartphone and Tablets (USM64CA1/S) that is kinda small that fits into an adapter for USB a so the drive itself is USB c only but it's still about as big as the ones I linked with USB a plugs built in.

The taipove one, the second linked one, will probably work the best as it's completely flat around the USB c connector where as the Kingston and verbatim have a slight rise before the USB c plug.

u/pdmcmahon · 1 pointr/macsetups

My substantial content such as backups, music, movies, and television shows is all stored multiple times on all of the huge VOL* volumes. In Dropbox, I keep content like this. My Dropbox volume is currently at about only 9.3% out of 2.08 TB of storage. I kinda with they had a smaller, cheaper option. I could get by with a 500 GB option, I do not need 2 frigging terabytes. On a couple of computers with smaller boot volumes, I go into Selective Sync and deselect some of the larger folders like _BOOKS (37.4 GB), _PLAYBOYS (88.9 GB), _OS TOOLS (35.7 GB) (which also contains my software installers). Basically, Dropbox contains the content I want on me at all times. There are times when I am out and about and I do not have my 4 TB floater drive (VOL5). I also use a Dropbox folder titled _SHARE with which some friends and I swap some content between each other.

In addition to all of this, I carry three 32 GB USB 3.0 thumb drives which have the latest Mac OS, Microsoft Windows, and Ubuntu Linux installers. On the first two, I also have folders with all of their respective software installers. My main point with this is insane levels of redundancy.

u/NO_SPACE_B4_COMMA · 1 pointr/Seaofthieves

They are cheap enough. I keep this one on my keychain. It has windows, linux, utilities, etc.


u/Torschlusspaniker · 1 pointr/techsupport

Chance that it has failed.

The tool can't kill the drive since it just does a simple format, copy files and installs a mbr.

Writing to the drive can kill it when it is on its last legs.

I would have you try the hp format tool from within windows:

If that fails I would have you boot into a linux live cd and run gparted on the flash drive. If you can't read it in linux the thing is dead.

Flash drives are only like $20 so you can just replace it for cheap (amazon is having a sale anyway)

The 32 gb ones have worked well for me, they have been in the washing machine and dryer and still work fine. (I had a 128 gb start acting goofy but it has a long warranty)

Good luck. If your brother has a different operating system than you I think I'd avoid lending your drives to him. The one I used in college started corrupting files when I would it use it between my Mac and the PCs in one department. Now I only use these keychain memory sticks if I have to transfer stuff between other people's computers. If it shits out, that's only like $15 down the drain.

I recently was on a 20 hour road trip to move. My biggest recommendation is to try to avoid temptation to "binge" and just go non-stop. It will result in stress and exhaustion. I would try to stop maybe every ~300 miles and rest somewhere. Really try to pace yourselves.

Good luck with the move!

u/Barbie-Doll · 1 pointr/linux4noobs

The flash drive I'm using is actually brand new. Maybe it's the computer? It's a mid-2010 model.

My original intention was to continue dual booting Windows 7 and Linux, and I was actually planning to try out Arch anyway, since I hear it has a very thorough guide online.

I followed a guide linked by another user, which added "UEFI Boot: Ubuntu" to my boot menu, still getting grub rescue. I reformatted my USB ("MS-DOS (FAT)" and "Master Boot Record"), and tried to write Arch to it using dd, but it's still going to the grub rescue screen. I tried both Legacy boot and UEFI boot, exact same result. Odd thing to note is that after I reformatted and put Arch on the drive, the UEFI boot option was still listed as Ubuntu. Not sure if that means anything?

I definitely have some data on the drive that I'd like to recover, but I think I have an enclosure somewhere if I decide to pull the drive out and I can just use another machine to read the data. I absolutely need to have a functioning laptop by tomorrow morning though, so I'm going to go out and grab a cheap one in a bit. I'm leaning towards ASUS X540LA, but also considering HP 15-af131dx, ASUS X540SA, or Dell I3558. Ideally, I'll be able to just use the new one to write a bootable USB, and then I'll return it.

u/PanchitoMatte · 1 pointr/buildapcsales

I used to own a Samsung BAR flash drive. It was this one:
It got too hot to touch and the write speed was miserably slow. Those two things led me to leaving it in the computer at school and donating it to the next user. I went ahead and bought a SanDisk EXTREME Go instead:
No complaints.

u/Popopopper123 · 1 pointr/Surface

This one:

I just tested it on my other computer though, and it seems you're right. For small files it's much faster, but for large files it starts fast but slows down after a few seconds, and it's much faster reading, where I got 150 MB/s.

u/Sipher114 · 1 pointr/GooglePixel

I'm not too sure if you're limited to what you can transfer to the USB. Right now I'm using this USB ( However if you like the idea and are willing to shell out an extra $30, this one is probably a better investment (

>most people should do to protect their information

Never give out any information that you would never want public to anyone online anywhere. If it's in a private email, assume you're posting it to a public site like Reddit. Never send sensitive information to anyone for any reason, even if they ask for it, and you will never worry about being compromised by scam or phishing. The easiest way to break into a network during a pentest is to simply embed a payload into a PDF file, and email it. The PDF attachment and email appear to be a legitimate invoice that is past due, prompting you to open it out of panic. Of course, once opened you've compromised your machine and given me a foothold into your network. Another common way I get people is to click a link via IM. Skype resolves SMB links, which sends your windows password in the form of an NTLM hash. I just need that hash. I don't even need to break it. You click that link, and you will connect to my server and more or less hand me your windows password and login.

TL;DR: You are the weakest link. Prepare yourself mentally to be on guard 24/7/365 when online. Never post any information on any platform that you wouldn't mind being public. If it must be posted (like paying with a credit card), have a plan together for dealing with fraudulent transactions and reclaiming your identity. You want to know NOW how to fix all these things so you can react quick enough for when they inevitably happen (it is almost guaranteed you will have your card information stolen and abused at some point now).

>Also, is there a point to having an emergency flash drive and what would be worth putting on it?

Absolutely! Just be sure to encrypt it in the event it is lost or stolen. This can be done with Bitlocker on Windows or with the Disk Utility application in Mac. If you're rockin Linux, you're probably already familiar with LUKS. If you want to use an application not built in, I recommend Vera Crypt. It is a ported and maintained version of True Crypt, and is cross-platform, and is easy to use.

There are also water/shock/dust resistant drives, like this one.
If you want a water/shock/dust resistant stick-type, you can get something like this and use a necklace chain to wear it as a necklace.

Information you might want to keep on your emergency flash drive:

  • Tax information.
  • Resumes.
  • Identity documents (front/back scans of passport, ID, etc.)
  • Bitcoin/Ethereum/Cryptocurrency wallets.
  • Pet vet records.
  • Credit Card info + contact information for the banks/card issuers.
  • Offline Map files (that can get loaded into map applications, like Google Maps).
  • Your countries embassy locations and numbers.
  • Insurance information (medical, car, homeowners).
  • Bank Routing and Account #s.
  • A current photo of your friends & family members (for missing persons after disaster). You can probably just grab that off Facebook these days.
  • Address/Phone book of important contacts (I included mine with the photo).
  • Critical business files, like ledgers.
  • Valid digital copies of deeds, titles, registration etc.
  • Vehicle VIN/License information.
  • Recovery keys for various devices (SSH Keys, AES keys, keepass recovery keys, Google Authenticator/Gmail recovery keys, etc.)

    I actually have a persistent copy of TAILS installed on a drive. I can plug that in and load into it, and have all my information ready to rock at any moment. Essentially I can plug in and boot my drive from any working computer with a USB port, and have my desktop ready to go with all my code and critical files. All with tinfoil-level encryption, and I know my files will be unrecoverable on whatever machine I use.
u/awkwardinternet · 1 pointr/pathofexile

>> a good flash drive is like more than half the price of a cheap SSD with 1/8 the space and much worse performance.


Where exactly are you finding a 1TB SSD for $60?

@OP: Still I would be surprised if USB performed well for this... if you have USB 3.0, you can pick up a USB 3.0 32GB for $10 and try it if you want. If it doesn't work well (most likely case) then hey, you've got a sweet USB 3.0 flash drive with plenty of space for other things.

u/Asuppa180 · 1 pointr/ShieldAndroidTV

That's why I was looking at it. I'm currently using a 64gb micro sd card. And the speeds are pretty horrendous. Was looking at this one. Samsung 128gb 3.0 drive

The 128gb version seems to have good speeds. Light years ahead of my micro sd right now.

Edit- easier on the eyes

u/zachtib · 1 pointr/archlinux

I went with this drive:

I wanted something fairly rugged. The plan is to partition 100/28GB exFAT/LiveUSB, so this will also be my general purpose USB drive, too

u/Rossoneri · 1 pointr/chromeos

I have an Acer 14 and it's awesome. The screen is amazing quality for watching shows and the aluminum build is really beautiful.

I really don't think storage should be an issue at all. Invoices shouldn't be taking up a large amount of space. As the other user mentioned, google drive makes for a great place to store things, or to store backups. Additionally even though it doesn't have a sd slot, you can still get a usb drive for backup or storage of old

You can also get a usb drive like this: which barely sticks out and can easily be left in all time.

u/HeidiH0 · 1 pointr/linuxquestions

Just get a low profile samsung fit, and write to it.

Fat32/exFat is the common denominator if you don't want to do a NAS.

As long as Mac doesn't F up the partition, you should be fine.

u/JimboLodisC · 1 pointr/theNvidiaShield

That should be plenty of space and speed. However, I'd probably look at benchmarks and find the fastest card you can afford. Lexar and Samsung make some great cards as well.

I'd also maybe suggest taking a look at the Sandisk Ultra Fit flash drive. It sits kinda flush, so it might be a workable solution for much faster speeds.

u/detjensrobert · 1 pointr/GalliumOS

I very much second the USB drive, I use this one ( and is possibly the best thing for this computer.

The 32 gigs the 14 has is more forgiving than other chromebooks' 16 so you dont need to worry as much about slimming the install. Programs and such wont take up a whole lot of space so you shouldnt need to try to put them on the USB.

u/boodled · 1 pointr/gpdwin

I like my Samsung Fit, it's been reliable and fits well. When I tried this version of the Sandisk Ultrafit 128, I had trouble with it spontaneously unmounting itself. Possibly because it was physically running into the lid, or maybe I just received a bad drive. Maybe the newer plastic model is better though

u/jamiegandolf · 1 pointr/gpdwin

It's a great machine. Only problem I've had is the forced updates from Microsoft that have kind of broken my automatic controller functionality in a lot of games. I've seen other issues, though they all seem to be repairable/reversible issues. This specific issue has made it difficult for some of my games to easily see there's a controller available.

I have a 128 GB Samsung Ultra Fit USB flash drive that sits in the back. It's very low key and not noticeable. It does make it difficult to move the screen back completely but the position it is in is just fine with me. There is also a common issue with the USB 3.0 port that makes it sometimes not readable but it just takes a little move and the system recognizes its in there. Just seems to be a cheaply made port, is all. It works most times and has never randomly disconnected on me. This just usually becomes a problem when I remove it and put it back in. Currently there doesn't seem to be anything this small to allow for portability and ease of putting in your pocket, etc. that's above 128 GB. I paid like $30 for it at a local store. That has all of my games on it with Skyrim being the only game I have installed on the internal memory.

In addition to that, I have a 64 GB Micro SD card that is in there and I've just started using it for anything extra I have. 256 GB Micro SD cards are pretty pricey at $150+ for a decent one that will work with your gaming needs.

If you truly stick to emulators, I think that 128 GB USB flash drive will be suffice for you for everything while helping you save money and allowing you time to save up for a 256 GB Micro SD card like I'm doing.

The GPD Win is pretty pricey on its own but you can get lucky if you don't mind getting one used. I got one in superb condition for $300 off eBay (the number 1 key doesn't work, but that's okay) as they are about $439 brand new starting and they take longer to ship because they come from China. I've also read some people having issues where customs opened their box thinking it was drugs. There are also people on this sub selling theirs, one guy today posted one asking $250 and saying it's brand new in the packaging. Doing that may help you save money to put towards an expensive, good SD card too.

u/Scottap · 1 pointr/chromeos

I actually think your best bet would be an USB drive. They offer faster speeds at the same (or less) cost. If you think Samsung works best with Samsung products, I recommend you this paired up with this adapter

Why is it better? The SD card gives you 95MB/s (Lots of Android apps can't be sent to your SD Card (without rooting) because they are really slow, imagine that using an OS such as Ubuntu/Debian) and 128GB for $81.38. The USB drive + adapter gives you 128GB, 150MB/s and an adapter for other things other than your drive for $49.94.

If you think losing an USB slot is just too much, you can always buy this hub instead of the adapter. Total: $57.94

u/zephroth · 1 pointr/Futurology

Generaly speaking backups are just that. You don't necessarily need to back up your whole computer Just the important data.

So depends on what is important to you. If its just documents its not so bad. If its an archive of all your grandparent's photos yeah that can get a little costly.

I have a 1TB Mediafire for $45 a year. Plenty to store all my important documents and some of my imaging stuff. My video I have an acceptable loss policy, I have 2 - 5TB drives that I make sure are exactly the same when changes are made. But I am taking a risk with that even.

Yes the more data you wish to keep the more costly it is.

I can get a 256GB memory Stick for about 40 bucks

Meida fire costs now 7.50 a month or 90 for the year so call it an even $150. to get decent backups.

On the second part what you are talking about is cold storage. its a different type of data backup. It's low availability, you have to physically go get the disk. I would recommend at least 2 types of medium for that 1 offsite, could be in a bank, a parent or friends house, or at work. The point of the offsite is that if something physically happens to your location (Flood, tornado, hurricane) you know that the data is stored safely away from your area.

Honestly I would be happy if everyone had a cloud account and their computer. that will cover 80% of the instances where your computer crashes and you need your documents back.

The only things I would recommend is this case to use when you need to store it and aren't carrying it around, this flashdrive, and a pair of bluetooth headphones. Anything else and it's no longer simply a portable gaming device that you can just take everywhere or slip in your pocket. If you're gonna buy all that extra stuff just get a regular laptop.

u/jonhuang · 1 pointr/jerseycity

The flash drive looks like a good choice personally I used this mini Samsung drive cause it copies cooler, but it's more money in Canada so I'd stick with what you have. As for the card, I would use a more basic one with a lower write speed and maybe only 8 gigs. I say this cause I had an 8 gig card that worked great, but when I tried to use a 64gb card with the same setup, I couldn't get Project M to load anymore. I don't what you'll try, but newer, bigger cards might cause issues

My current setup for retropie/kodi is a small sd card with the Retropie image and extra emulators, and one of those slim, large usb drives automounted to the roms directory. That way I can also remove it to plug into another device (I have a debian partition on a laptop with emulationstation configured to use the same usb drive). It works really well for me, so I'd recommend it. It's also nice to easily load up additional roms, or to keep my roms if I re-image the retropie install.

Much less bulk than an external hdd, and unless you're loading entire game system libraries, I can't see you needing the extra space a large external would provide.

Although, these go on sale quite often. I got the 128gb for around $10 on prime day. I've seen them go on sale since then also.

u/brendanthree · 1 pointr/linux

in that case maybe try installing it to high capacity jump drives. They are cheaper than doing it from hard drives and are gunna be faster/more durable as well as more portable since youre using them with your laptop and linux is super easy to install to a usb

Since youre just playing around with linux and not using it as a daily driver you probably wont need more than 128 gb

u/mat8675 · 1 pointr/OculusGo

I bought one over the weekend for exactly this and I've had time to watch a couple shows and a movie on it...

I think it's great...I really enjoy the Netflix experience and the movie theater experience you get with the Oculus video thing is really awesome! Like others have said it would have been really cool of them to include an SD card reader but 64 GB (maybe even 32) should be enough to store a few movies on when traveling. If that isn't enough storage you'll soon be able to utilize USB storage so something like this would be pretty nice because it wouldn't weigh the headset down at all.

Long story short I really like it for watching stuff on...You aren't going to have a 4K or really even Blu Ray experience, but if you're content with DVD quality or so (maybe slightly better) image and a large screen I say go for it. I also think it would be cool, especially with the Netflix app, to have a place that feels nice and comfy to watch stuff in regardless of the Hotel you're staying at...sit back on a bed or a couch and kick your feet up, throw on the Go, click Netflix - and you're in this cozy and familiar log cabin with a giant screen and all of your Netflix content.

Additionally - when they get it up and running, either in the Oculus Video app or Big Screen, get your significant other/kids one to leave at home and you guys can watch movies together while you're on the road (or not, that really depends on your persons at home).

My only real cons are the usual stuff with VR...the sweet spot, while bigger, is still smaller than I'd like it to be - especially for reading text, the battery life isn't the best, and the picture - while better than ever - still leaves something to be desired.

Regardless, I hope this helps - good luck with your decision!

-Unfortunately, Apple makes sure that you can't upgrade storage or RAM by yourself so that they can make as much money as possible. If you're really desperate on storage, you can buy a compact flash drive which sits almost flush with the laptop (like this one) or use a service like Google Drive. Then you can move your stuff over, then you'll be good on storage.

-It seems that if you're already playing games on the 4GB RAM, you should be good as long as you're not constantly adding new titles to your collection.

-As for engineering programs, I wouldn't recommend it but it seems that your MacBook is powerful enough to take it on. I would recommend that you keep the number of apps you have open to an extreme minimum while using those kinds of programs though.

-The whirring sound you hear is the fan inside. It keeps the processor cool in order to reach peak performance. That's why you hear it when you're playing games or performing demanding tasks (such as running engineering programs). It's supposed to do that, so don't worry - that means that your computer is working right!

I hope this helps!

u/jiserrab · 1 pointr/teslamotors

Been using this USB thumb drive since March. Only seen a gray or 1/2 gray video a couple times. I’d get corrupt videos (500kb with no recordings) maybe 6 files out of hundreds that were saved. I’ve never long pressed to disable prior to removing the drive. Once I’ve reviewed the relevant footage I just delete the irrelevant videos and save the others to my computer and return the drive to car and go on recording with an empty “Saved files” folder. I’ve never deleted any files from the recently saved folder.

Edit: TM3 AWD w/EAP since September & currently on 2019.24.4.

Edit 2: so is EAP Enhanced Auto Pilot or Early Access Program? Just reading through and it dawned on me. I’m not part of Early Access Program but I do have Enhanced Auto Pilot.

Get a larger internal drive. Or at worst, something like this: SanDisk UltraFit. Better memory than what's in an SD card.

u/CajunVagabond · 1 pointr/PSVR

Use the USB port in the back of the Pro for the PSVR, use a tiny black USB drive in the front port instead of a hard drive and you shouldn’t have any cables showing except when you plug in the headset.
I use this USB drive and it’s so small you can’t even see it in the front, it fits perfectly in the Pro (some are too fat).

u/PedalMonk · 1 pointr/AndroidAuto

All you need to do is buy a tiny usb flash drive, load up your music and that's it! Everything works. I the SanDisk 128GB Ultra Fit USB 3.1 Flash Drive - SDCZ430-128G-G46 for $18.99 from BestBuy today. Just ask them to price match with Amazon.

So what doesn't this do? If you love Android Auto (which I hate) then you may not like this route, but honestly, I can't see how this isn't superior to both bluetooth and AA. You can still use AA for everything else.

It works fantastic and I'm really happy with it.

u/aagha786 · 1 pointr/ShieldAndroidTV

I have my media (mostly ripped movies) on a NAS and use PLEX on my 16GB Shield.

I bought a 128GB USB 3.1 drive (here) and made it attached storage.

The Plex web and mobile apps work fine. I don't have PlexPass, but I tried it free for 30 days. I decided not to renew because I personally didn't think the benefits were that great. Some of them include (and I'm sure there are others):

  • Movie trailers for movies you own
  • More than 5 min of playback on the mobile app

    The Shield does not need to be on all the time; I let mine sleep when I'm done with it.

    If you install Plex, you might also want to look into installing the Kodi app and the (PlexKodiConnect)[] Kodi add-on that gives you a lot of cool features.

    BTW, I don't play games either, but my son and I have found a few games we like and play pretty often. The graphics are fantastic and NVidia GeForce Now is unreal.

    Edit: Fixed wrong name for NVidia's service

You have the option to use your external device as a "device storage", some apps will move there or you can just plug it in as use it as an external storage for tv shows/movies.

If you want to use your external device as a device storage, don't plug a usb 2.0 or slow hdd in it. Get a ssd or something like this

u/HomeForSinner · 1 pointr/TeslaModel3

Play from the car? I'll try that.

I did just figure something out though, as I'm going back and forth trying various stuff. The larger drive will not format to FAT-32, only exFAT. I cannot get it to show up at all. The smaller drive formats to FAT-32 and I did actually just get it to show up in the car -- when I held it pressed into the USB slot, and slightly pushed to the right. I let go, it goes away. Now that sounds like a hardware problem unless it's my stick, but it's the only FAT-32 stick I have. Didn't realize the 128 GB was exFAT/NTFS only...

SANDISK Cruzer Glide Flash Drive 64GB USB 2.0 (via Target) worked for me without power mod or hub. I had it filled to about 32GB. I can't confirm if it works when filled past 32GB.

SanDisk 128GB Ultra Fit USB 3.1 Flash Drive - SDCZ430-128G-G46 (via Amazon) worked for me (without power mod or hub) when filled to about 32GB but stopped working when I added a ton of new games to it. Sorry, I'm not sure at what capacity it stopped working. I did the power mod on port #2 and now everything works flawlessly with this drive. I did not try it with a powered hub before doing the power mod.

In both of these cases, I'm running PSC Retroboot (standalone). I've never run Autobleem or Bleemsync.

Edit: Also, I'm using this 5V 2.4A power supply.

u/arswright · 1 pointr/smallbusiness

Cloud storage should be perfectly fine if you're encrypting your data - there are many free and open source solutions to facilitate encryption which will protect data against intrusion (i.e. your PC's operating system would be a more likely vector for data breach than an encrypted file with a long password on private cloud storage space).

That being said, you should be using encryption on your data with any storage solution (if you aren't already).

If you have less than 256GB of data, you should be able to get away with an external SSD or USB flash drive (recommend keeping at least two separate, encrypted drives in two separate physical locations to guard against theft/fire/etc) so you're probably not looking at spending too much to ensure security and business continuity.

u/6675636b20796f · 1 pointr/teslamotors

I understood that line as write speed=15X4=60 MB/s whereas one may read it as 15X standard=4 MB/s which I'm guessing you did? I googled around a few other benchmarking sites and they seem to indicate write speeds somewhere in between the two readings of what's on the sandisk website. . 1 2 3 4 Let me know if I'm missing something obvious here.

u/thistleboy · 1 pointr/raspberry_pi

So you're backing up flash cards to the USB flash drive? That's be a nice thing to automate, insert the card, script auto backs it up to a new folder, clear the card and then there's an indicator (speaker, LED, etc.) to let you know it's done.

I almost bought the same flash drive for my Pi this week, but noticed a 256GB version just came out.

Could you recommend me a small flash drive that's pretty fast and tiny or are those the best I can get? I might just get the 128gb version of my old drive haha.

These SD cards are 100mb/s. My USB stick is double that, 200mb/s.

u/seaQueue · 1 pointr/GalliumOS

Hey, I know the answer to this! An A2 SD card is your best option at the moment until someone makes a low profile USB 3.1 stick that doesn't overheat and throttle.

I tested about half a dozen low profile USB 3.1 sticks while trying to answer this question for myself. Every stick I tested overheats and throttles under load, most throttle so badly that you might as well be using USB 2.0, most hit something ridiculous like 5MB/s when overheated. The only super low profile USB 3.1 drive in the batch that didn't throttle down to ridiculously low speed was the Samsung Fit Plus, and while it didn't throttle to unusable speeds it did still throttle significantly.

The fastest overall performance for interactive use (I run a couple of crouton chroots from and store a steam library on mine) during my testing came from a SanDisk A2 Extreme micro SD card. The USB 3.1 sticks are faster for burst transfers before they overheat, but once they overheat performance drops so low that they're almost unusable.

A couple of notes: I ran that suite of storage tests around a year ago, at the time SanDisk was the only mfgr with an A2 rated uSD card available.

I also have an Acer, I picked up a half-sized SD to uSD adapter and use that so the whole assembly is recessed into the SD slot, it could be a little tricky to get out at some point if it ever comes out at an angle and gets stuck. So far I haven't had this problem but be aware of it if you decide to do the same thing.

You'll need to remount the SD storage from the chromeOS shell so that it's persistent and doesn't disconnect every time the Chromebook sleeps. I have a couple of bookmarks detailing that somewhere, I'll look for them.

u/MicroCuts7 · 1 pointr/PlaystationClassic

Sorry for the late reply - work.

Bleemsync 1.1 with OTG capability added using USB loaded directly into controller port 2.

I use this USB:

Samsung MUF-128AB/AM FIT Plus...

Plug USB into PC and format into FAT32, name it SONY. Move Bleemsync files to USB. Unplug, plug into UNPLUGGED PSC controller port 2. Plug in PSC and allow it to update the console. It will backup the console details and update kernel data. Once done, unplug PSC, remove USB and plug into PC again. SAVE ALL OF THIS SOMEWHERE, MULTIPLE PLACES. Move 1 specific file over to USB, plug back into port 2 on unplugged PSC, plug in PSC, allow it to update. When it shuts down in like 60 seconds it’s all done.

The above takes all of like 10 minutes for this entire process. Then you can plug your USB into this:

AuviPal 2-in-1 Micro USB Cable...

No power mod required. Just a pass through.

I deleted Bleemsync after and added Autobleem 0.6b3 which now includes Retroarch, now I boot into Autobleem directly.

This is probably the “best” tutorial. If you need help, let me know.

Finally, here’s the (current) setup, it’ll change I’m sure (don’t mind the yelling kid in the background or the potato quality, I’m no streamer...)

Thanks. I think I might try sending the drive back and getting another instead.

Is this the Samsung drive you're referring to? It's a little big though... do you know of any other compact/smaller ones that might be good?

I would love something like this (i.e., as small as possible). But this one is USB 2.0 (and I don't know if it'd be compatible or if it'd have any overheating issues).

On another note, if I got a new USB stick, would it be possible to copy the contents of the old one onto the new one? I spent a couple days setting everything up on the SanDisk Ultra Fit and would love to not have to do that again... I realize it's not as simple as copy and paste, so wondering how I might be able to do it?

Enter the Mouse Jiggler.

I found this for my wife. She works remotely from home for her work. If you're AFK from your laptop for more than 10 minutes, the work installed IM program automatically sets you to "away". IIRC you can set the "jiggle" to a timeframe of how often it operates when you're AFK. This allows her to get laundry done, care for our 3yr old when a meltdown occurs etc while escaping the eye of scrutiny.

To be fair, my wife works on a team of 4 people and last month she did %93 of the orders recieved (102) with only %.09 error rate. She deserves a few minutes here and there for herself.
