I knew this would would happen someday or another, but a need a good USB for my Wii U. It shouldn't be too high, $0 - $200 is a reasonable amount. It does have to be something that could probably last for about 1 or 2 years even though I don't download a lot of digital games.

You mean en external HDD? In that case you should look at this list, though any external powered hard drive should work fine, as well as USB-powered ones through a Y-cable or hub.

I got the Toshiba Canvio basic 500GB and I wouldn't recommend it. (When I tried a stress test on it it wasn't happy). Must draw more than an amp under high load. (I am using the Lindy Y-Cable by the way).

I am using a SanDisk 64GB USB and it loads the games as fast as the Wii U's own memory. For you and I that don't buy a lot of digital games, 64GB is more than enough. Also, they are very cheap: http://www.mymemory.co.uk/USB-Flash-Drives

I really don't like the navigation bar of Nintendo Life continuously reappearing while browsing!!

For the cost of a 64GB thumbdrive you could almost get a fairly entry level external HDD that'll do the job. Looking it up with Australian prices, a 64GB thumb drive ranges from $35AU to $60AU. A 500GB external portable HDD is around $70-80AU. You'll need either a powered USB Hub or a Y-cable for such a HDD assuming it's not in the box but still, it's definitely a better move.

Look at it this way, going the HDD route instead you're paying about as much as you would for a couple of Amiibos or less than the price of a game more. Which isn't that much in the grand scheme of things. But for that you're getting something that you will likely never fill and is generally more reliable than a flash drive.

Yeah, i considered that i could pay another $30 and get 15x the storage, BUT....i don't want to deal with another chord and i like the portability of the console. I realize that these are fairly compact, but i think it would be a hassle. Plus, it's going to take me a while to use the 64 gigs.

I have this one

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005IA8450/ref=s9_simh_gw_p1...
When I purchased it, had cost like $99, but now is a little more pricey but always in your budget. ($144)

Is fast and quiet, the power and usb cables are long so I been able to don't keep the console and the drive right next the other, actually I hide it in a shelf. I've used so far about 250gb of it.

Which SanDisk 64GB USB? 130MB/s or 245MB/s? Thinking I'll get one myself.

She was like a candle in the wind... Unreliable.
