Who wants a super-fast USB 3.0 flash drive with a whopping 128GB of space? You’d expect to pay a premium price for such a gadget… but not today, if you have $48 to spare.
While Newegg, the Amazon of computer parts, didn’t make much of a splash when it introduced Australian shipping a few years back, you can still find deals if you keep your eyes peeled.
OzBargain user macstevi recently spotted this one for Patriot’s 128GB Supersonic Rage 2 flash drive. The regular price is $64, but it’s 33 per cent off, bringing things down to $43. Add on GST, and you get $47.30.
Normally, US postage would wipe out the discount, but Newegg is offering free shipping at the moment, so what you see is what you get.
You’re probably thinking the drive is naff, given the cost and discount. Nope, couldn’t be further from the truth, with speeds of 400MB/s read / 200MB/s write.
My only criticism? The design. That rubber, cyan-coloured housing is pretty nasty, but this is small potatoes for what is essentially a very fast, very big potato.
