You are welcome. If everything goes, I will pick mine from one of the nearest Micro Center stores this evening.

Finally, I got mine. I did some tests with the F3 utilities (Fight Flash Fraud). Here is the results:
  • USB3 Flash Drive
    # f3probe --destructive --time-ops /dev/sdb
    F3 probe 8.0

I'de buy out everything in Microcenter if given the chance.

True sickness for me this tech stuff is! Example: I have 12 Pogoplugs (3 E02, 3 V4 Mobile, 2 V4 A3 and 6 Pros/Biz) , 6 Kace M300, 2 Dreamplugs, 2 Cisco Onplus, 2 Guruplugs, 4 RasPi (a 4B, 2 3B and 1 Zero), 1 Akitio Myclound, 2 Dockstars and one Odroid C1+. All of them running Debian.

That's not including the thin clients I play around with.

I tell ya I need to seek professional counseling as there is no way I can possibly use all this stuff! And you're not helping habibie :)!

I'm little worse. I use 1 NAS + 6 little pogplugs to compile kernel, 4 NAS for streaming music and videos, 1 NAS for backup, and 4 of various kind for testings, a few more on the shelf unopened :))

I didn't even want to talk about you Mr Bodhi. Shame on you for enabling a helpless tech junky. How do you sleep at night? :{\

I hope the only problem is the negotiation with your boss (of the household). i.e. your "Yes Honey" :))

I probably have the worst problem in the bunch. If you have a desire to see the depth of my issue just go to https://wikidevi.wi-cat.ru and click on Recent Changes and find an entry with my name. Then click on contribs and realize that every entry I create or update I actually own that device!

Just found an another Dockstar I forgot I picked up for cheap but it's kinda disgustingly yellowing. Have a plan to spray paint it aluminum color to match a USB DAC I have. Getting around to that project sometime within the next decade lol.
