a few people on RFD are having problems with them.

 

So I guess we'll see, only had them for a few days and only used them a few times each.

It was marked 16GB, only had 200MB in reality before it started corrupting the files. I got it exchanged, and this one was showing up in Windows as 231MB so I returned it. Both with extremely slow speeds.

JBL 4412 // P-308 / M-508, who needs a sub woofer when you have an equalizer?

Legacy:

 

Spoiler

pc -> preamp -> splitter -> my 'crossover' (equalizer set to +12db on 35-200hz, twice since its a stereo one and im using it as mono), my amp

'crossover' -> amp (cheapo ebay board) -> subwoofer

Equalizer: Pioneer SG-60

eBay amp: Generic 100w with terrible traits 

 

PC -> 3.5mm to RCA -> L = Speaker Set3, R = Pre Amp -> Amp -> Speaker Set1/2

Speaker Set3 = Subwoofer (Altec Lansing VS4121 subwoofer, the amp is using the built in amp with that sub)

Speaker Set1 = 'Tweeters' (2x Panasonic SB-FS900 Surround Speakers)

Speaker Set2 = 'Mid Ranged' (Center speaker from Panasonic SB-FS900, Generic 'JS Hi-Fi Speakers'

Total: 1 subwoofer, 2 midranged, 2 tweeters

Pre Amp: Onkyo P-308

Amp: Onkyo M-508

Speaker Set2 is set to -5db using my Amp, quieter because I don't like my mids to be as loud as my highs/lows

 no more 'no buzz', it's hearable with the subwoofer. 

 

 

 

 

138 is a good number.

You expected a easter egg? No.

Reading the thread on RFD and people are posting their drives infos and the controllers and nand flash sources are all over the place ... this is really a hit and miss thing.

Walmart, especially 3rd party sellers are just like Amazon's 3rd party sellers unfortunately. I would suggest going into the store with proof and asking for a replacement 16gb stick instead of your money back, they might just throw you a real stick, but it's not worth your time to go out and do this.

It's not a 3rd party item ; "Sold and shipped by Walmart"

 

Also, I bought mines at the store ;)

Yeah, they seem legit, hanging there with their packaging and all that :P

I guess you wouldn't really have any way to know other than that it's some no-name company no one's ever heard of, which really should be a red flag since there are only a few: SanDisk, Samsung, Lexar, Corsair, etc. yeah that's not an extensive list but they're all big names you should immediately recognize.

@Ryan_Vickers to be fair, USBflashinfo does see the nand chips as SanDisk brand, might be why I got ok units?

well those would have to be a real brand unless they were just plastic blocks :P Even a "fake"/scam company has to use real flash or it wouldn't work at all, and usually they want it to work just enough to fool you into thinking the 2 GB of cheap flash they actually installed is the 1 TB they've reprogrammed it to claim it is.
