Mach Xtreme says the drives are affordable, but nowhere do they mention an MSRP (Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price). :wtf:

Their fastest currently available USB 32GB drive is the LS series (faster than the FX, apparently, until you get in the higher capacities) which boasts ~180 MB/s read/write and will set you back, from the only place I can find it, $60 (on sale from $80). (Their 64 GB FX does 125 MB/s for $62,
"normally" $200).

Some quick searching found a few 32GB flash drives that would trade blows with this drive for under $30.

It'd have to be quite the jump down in price from their current stock in order to be competitive, I would think.
