130 bucks for 64 GB? Didn't MPC just, in its USB benchmark, give high marks to the Sandisk Extreme 64 GB which was ~70 bucks?

200+ MB/sec is much better than the 30 MB/sec advertised for the 128 GB Micro SD cards on an older article here. When I can buy home-class internet access that is faster than modern local storage something is wrong IMO.

We'll have to wait and see, but I suspect street pricing will be lower.

So much files will be lost that I feel very sad about the people who buy this. The larger the USB is and the filled up it is, the more it hurts when you receive "You need to format your device" message.

Most people on this site would know how to restore from a flash drive that lost it's format. And even if they don't, it's no reason not to have heaps of data, it's basically saying "I'll have less of this because if I have more I'll be upset if I lose it". Which is silly.
