My 128 GB PNY drive from the same line seems to cap at 125 MB/sec for writes :(

The construction on these things isn't top notch. That's been my experience over the years with PNY drives: pretty decent performance but weak device construction.

I wonder how good (fast) this 256GB flash drive would be to use instead of a hard drive. I'm sure that even at USB 3.0 speeds it wouldn't be SSD fast, but on an SSF build where mitigating an HHD would significantly improve airflow, would this be a viable solution? Any thoughts on this out there?

600+MB/s fast!

Imagine backing up your SSD on a thumb drive. I was never a fan of PNY tho as I always considered them a low priced vendor. Are they making good products these days?

The lifetime warranty is worth pointing out.

These USB flash drives are awesome drives to add storage to the Wii U! I personally bought a 32GB micro flash drive for my Wii U for $19.99. Cheap way to double my storage...
