Other Thoughts:

Update on the replacement SanDisk Extreme 16 gig flash drive I received.

When I requested a return authorization for my defective one, the email I received from SanDisk said I would receive a "new replacement." The replacement I received shows only 95% Remaining Life (my defective still showed 100%) and a Retired Block Count of 1 (my defective showed 0 blocks retired). The replacement also shows Total Host Writes of 5605 and Total Host Reads of 75188.

It appears that not only did I receive a used replacement drive, but one that has significantly more wear on it than the defective one I sent in.

To be fair, the replacement benchmarks better than the defective one I returned (Sequential Write speed comes in at 140.1 MB/s which is far better than advertised -- my defective one came in at 61.08 MB/s, which is inline with advertised specs). 4K random Reads/Writes also bench marked better.

Would I purchase another SanDisk Extreme flash drive? -- yes, I would; the performance per dollar makes them a great value and the turn-around time for the replacement was fast.

Nevertheless, I am not happy about receiving a replacement drive with significantly more wear on it than the defective one I returned.
