Select a Reliable and Cheap USB Stick Which Fit Your Needs
When it comes to picking a USB flash drive, it might not be as easy as you think. Most people would choose a cheap USB stick which has as big memory capacity as possible. And for now, we can see there are some USB flash drives that have a storage capacity up to 2 TB. To be fair, it is a very good tactic, and we highly recommend our customers to go for the one with bigger memory capacity than you think you need them to be. The reason behind is very simple, as a user, you will never regret having too much space. For cost, the price of the USB flash drive normally increases along with the increase of memory capacity, but in most cases, one 32GB USB flash drive is cheaper than two 16GB USB flash drives. (SanDisk Cruzer Spark 16GB cost £5.59, whereas SanDisk Cruzer Spark on cost 32GB £5.99)
Apart from simply reading the price and memory capacity from the package, if you want to take this to the next level of consideration, we break down a few more important factors you might need to consider before you make your purchase. Please see below.
First of all, apart from the memory capacity, speed is also a very crucial factor. Typically, a USB 3.0 is having a faster transfer speed than a USB 2.0. But if you are getting a cheap USB stick with relatively small capacity let say a 2 GB. It does not make a huge difference paying a more expensive price to go for the one with premium speed. Since it does not make a distinctive difference transferring this amount of data. On the other hand, if you are working on a time sensitive job or you are transferring 1TB of data, do pick a faster one. But please be aware that your laptop or devices also need to be compatible with USB 3.0, otherwise you cannot utilise the technology behind your USB sticks.
Secondly, look at the physical appearance of the USB sticks. We are not here to judge the aesthetic appearance and design for each USB stick but please focus on whether a USB stick for sale is robust enough to provide protection from physical damage. Most of the time, damage on a USB stick comes from physical damage like falling on the floor or drop in water rather than cyber-attack or being hacked. So durability is very essential, and there is a chance if you drop your USB flash drive, it will stop working and all the data stored inside will be gone. Most of the cheap USB sticks with big memory capacity usually use less sturdy materials on their casing to lower the cost. So, remember to pick the one with a certain level of robustness. Look for the one with metal or aluminium casing or the other kinds of harder materials. Some of the casing also come with waterproof features.
Thirdly, check the USB port of your devices before you look for a USB flash drive for sale. USB sticks can be used as an additional way to store your information on pretty much all your devices, from laptop, desktop, smartphone, or even your digital camera. So, before you make your purchase, make sure the devices you are using share the same type of USB port as the USB flash drive. Otherwise you are not able to connect your new USB stick to your favourite devices. The most common one is still USB-A. Sometimes you might come across Micro-B. But in the last two to three years, USB-C is getting more and more popular. Of course, if you are going to use your USB flash drive on any Apple devices, looking for a USB stick Lightning connection is your only choice. Or you can pick a USB drive with dual connectors.
Lastly, security. In the market, there are many USB flash drives which come with fingerprint or password protection features. It is very easy to enable authentication or other safety features which help you to safeguard the information you store in your USB flash drive. Data which are stored in these USB flash drives, they are well encrypted and protected with password. Depending on what you are saving in your USB flash drive, pick the one you think the level of security is sufficient to protect your documents. Nowadays, USB sticks are all in a diminutive size, which makes carrying them extremely convenient, you can even keep them in your wallet or keychain. However, it also makes them very easy to lose. So having a well-protected USB stick is very essential.
