Note, these flash drives are slow, and can take a long time to read and write a lot of data.
Several reviewers say the Cruzer Glide performs at 5 megabytes per second, which means it can take 7 hours to copy 128GB.
However, if you are looking for a cheap way to have portable data storage and don't care about speed, these are great values.
