256GB Samsung Fit Plus USB 3.1 small flash drive for $40

Sandisk is not the only one making short “thumb-size” USB flash drives. Samsung is making them too and for a limited time their 256GB FIT Plus (model MUF-256AB/AM) is on sale for $40 at B&H Photo and Amazon itself. Samsung says this is a *proof device (water, shock, magnet, temperature, x-ray) and comes with a 5-year warranty.

Great use for laptops so they don’t stick out or hooked to a smartphone/tablet using a short OTG cable [assuming your device is compatible] or used on the front USB ports of desktop computers or used as storage in smart TVs or digital TV PVR boxes [I did this with one of those cheap $30 OTA “DVRs”) or to play music in cars, and so on…
