Build your own flashdrive

I'm thinking about testing a Britec video and build my own flash drive. What do you think of these two links? Has anyone ever done this before?

looks kinda big, not exactly able to carry on a keyring. can't argue with the speed of the thing tho. I might consider this.

I recently got the fastest flash drive I could find https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MU8TZRV and it is that, but I HATE retractable flash drives yet I had no choice for the speed, and sure enough my worst fear happened: the friggin retractable thumb switch has failed after around a dozen uses, and I need to buy something else now. the minor pressure it takes to push it into a USB port will send it back into it's shell. I'd be happier if I could just find a solid enclosure for what I've already got.

Actually right now, there are pre-built portable SSDs from Sandisk are on sale maybe it's just a permanent price drop. Amazon has a Sandisk 250GB portable SSD for less than $50 https://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-Extreme- ... 06WGPCW5L/

Just got around to reading this reply. Thanks for the information. I might check out this SanDisk one before I build my own. 50.00 is a bit less than what it was going to cost to build this one.

cool. looks like the sale is over, it went up to $55 I think it was $47 before, but not too much of a jump. still I think it's more economical in this case.
