    SanDisk Extreme Pro 256GB USB Flash Drive (lack of) Performance

    I've been seeing poor performance on my SanDisk Extreme Pro 256GB USB drive since its initial purchase in November 2017. I initially saw my drive easily hit the advertised speeds of 400+ MB/s reads and 300+ MB/s writes pretty continually. After 10 months of light use, I opened a ticket with...
