If you cannot find them in the store, they are online at the Costco website.  Read/Write speeds are: 150MB/s Read, 60MB/s Write.

If capacity is important then these USB flash drives might fit the bill. What is the read/write speed of the Lexar USB flash drive?

If speed is important then I would suggest going to our Linux Links webpage and scroll down to the "Recommended USB Flash Drives" section. This is a comparison of speed vs. price of the Mushkin USB flash drives.

I bought two 128 gigabyte Lexar 3.0 flash drives for 20. each after sale discount. Also available are two 32 gigabyte 3.0 flash drives for 18. after discount. This was in the Salem, Oregon Costco. I imagine that the SLO Costco has them too.

The Barlows have a brand new web site for their Acronis and related business.  The old site will still be there until June 25, but the new site is open and looks good!  It is at: http://www.ugr7.com/
Take a look and check new items and prices!

General Discussion / Notes from the SLO Bytes Photo Group Session of 06/12/16
« Last post by rsutter on June 12, 2016, 05:26:11 PM »

Hello All,


Here are my notes from today's meeting of the SLO Bytes Photo Group
TOPIC:Tools
The focus of the June 12 th meeting of the Digital Photography Group was Tools. The meeting opened with Ralph Sutter displaying a series of flowers that resembled miniature dancers, animals and mythical figures. View them at
http://www.slobytes.org/digital/images/Flowers.mp4
Next, members took turns showing images of common tools. Some of us chose kitchen utensils. Others opted for specialized hand tools or hand cranked grinders and slicers from an earlier era.
One member interpreted the topic, Tools, as an invitation to demonstrate some of the retouching tools found in Photoshop and shared how she used them to modify her images. Her choice prompted the decision to dedicate the July session to The Tools of Photoshop
You will find Notes to previous sessions by clicking on the Notes tab at the top of this page or by navigating directly to www.slobytes.org/digital/notes.html
