Some people might be of the assumption that all they need to know before proceeding to get a flash drive is just the brand they wish to go for and the price. Well, that is not right. There are other factors that are just as important as the brand and price that you should thoroughly decide on before purchasing the flash drive. We will be looking into some of these factors.
USB Disks Memory
The first factor we should look into is the memory of the flash drive. Of course everyone prefers a flash drive that has a lot of memory but the thing is that the bigger the memory then the more money you will have to spend on it.
So unless it is absolutely necessary, what are you really going to do with all the extra space?
Check out a 32 GB flash drive for instance, now that is a lot of memory that you can store a lot of information on and it is not that expensive.
A 64 GB flash drive on the other hand will cost you much more, more than two times the amount you can get a 32 GB flash drive for.
Hope now you understand what we are talking about. But then again, you are the one that will be making use of the flash drive and you are one that knows the amount of memory that will be okay for you, so feel free to go for the one that you are certain will serve you better and is also within your budget.
Flash Disk Reading and Writing Speed
Next factor that we are looking at is the Reading and Writing Speed. Most people do not think about this earlier so they end up purchasing any flash drive that has a very large space and by the time they have gotten a taste of how slow the flash drive is they start to regret.
To avoid this, ensure that you are not just going for space alone but the reading and writing speed as well. For instance a write speed of 16 Mb/s is not bad.
Size and Power
If you are one of those people that love over the top designs and attachments to your gadgets, when it comes to flash drives it will be best to tone it down a bit. The simpler the flash drive the better for you. If it has too many moving parts it might break easily.
More so if the design is complicated or bulky it will be very difficult to make use of the other ports seeing how they ports are always arranged. Also consider the material that the flash is made out of.
Go for a quality flash drive with a simple design and you will be glad you did.
In addition, you really don’t need some of the embellishments that manufacturers pack their flash drives with just to make it more attractive and of course more expensive. One of such is a fingerprint system. Just stick with the simple ones and you won’t regret it.
