Hi Ryan,

That's utter rubbish.  Can you refer me to a technical doc that states
what you claim here?  I've been running many USB sticks permanently and
none have issues as you describe.  The fact that you happened to have a
dodgy USB stick doesn't mean that the millions of others out there won't
work as designed.

Not to mention that a sample of "1" is far from representative of the
millions of units out there.  And no mention of the brand either...
