Is 128 GB a little too much capacity for a flash drive?

  1. Yes, 128 GB is too much data to lose

  2. No, it saves having multiple lower-capacity drives

  3. Maybe, if the drive's transfer-speed backs it

    If the price tag isn't too bad, this might be a really good buy. It's shiny, too. :p

    Exactly, so nothing special in other words. That might be good enough for an 8 or 16GB version, but 128GB... c'mon...

    flash memory doesn't have something called arial density, your expecting a little too much.

    I think you mean areal density ;)
    I know very well how flash memory works, my comment was with regards to the average performance for such a large drive, if I were to buy a 128GB USB 3.0 drive I'd want read/write speeds closer to 100MB/s than 50MB/s, that's all.
