    Default $1200 Flash drive??

    Explain this to me. I have the 32GB Corsair Survivor and it's only a $100 or so, so why is this one $1200??

    Typo maybe? The read/write speeds certainly arent anything impressive, and the design is just meh..

    Are you serious, I would never pay more for a thumbdrive that costs more than I paid for any one of my cars.

    They may have bought the drives an extremely long time ago, when 32GB in a flash drive was outrageous, and just haven't updated their pricing since? You see this happen with processors sometimes for a bit, when a new one gets released thats better and cheaper, but the company had to pay more for the first one, so its still more expensive.

    Idk though. Pretty crazy price for what it is.

    perhaps it's hand-sculpted out of diamond and covered in platinum...

    I think it may contain data from the future on it. Stuff like lottery numbers, sports scores for the next 10 years, etc...

    At that price, its a bargain!
