I am many things Paul, a liar is not one of them.
Lexar SL100 by Micron advertised perfomance.
SSD-level performance-up to 550MB/s read and 400MB/s write speeds on USB3.1
I purchased the Lexar SL100 SSD at Costco for that US$ price (costco stock # 1126326) though I have yet not done performance tests on them.
Amazon lists them for $159.97US
