there is no replacement in Amazon.it is refund .They will refund you whole amount if you are in return time period.Check your order in Amazon Console.than you have to buy again.New price is high or low its your luck
 
I have the same pendrive, 2 of them.
Both offer 95mB/s read and 45mB/s write on USB 3 ports on all my systems.
It does get warm but there is no degradation in perf. while filling all the available space, 14ish gB.

Definitely some problem with your PC or the particular unit you got.

whats the file system? FAT32 is factory default. NTFS is preferred for high speed.

The data transfer speed is depends on the manufacturer of storage drives, but the read and write speed is depend on the system configuration. For your information, if the drive is almost 80% full with data. It will impact on the read and write speed of the drive.
