USB memory sticks everything you need to know
November 2015

USB Flash Drive from somethingdifferent.co.ukKnown by various names - USB stick, flash drive, pen drive, memory stick and so on - the definition is as follows;
A USB flash drive consists of flash memory data storage device integrated with a USB (Universal Serial Bus) 1.1 or 2.0 interface. USB flash drives are typically removable and rewritable, much smaller than a floppy disk, and most weigh less than 30 g (1 oz). ...

With the science out of the way, we can look at the everyday useful information.

  • Memory size
    As with all computer-related products, the available memory size available continues to increase.  Originally offered with 8 or 16MB [Megabytes], the most popular memory size is now 1 or 2 GB [Gigabytes]. Larger memory sizes are available.  A higher memory size is required if pictures or movie clips are to be stored.

  • Prices
    The major component is a memory chip which is also used in smartphones & other devices.  The wholesale chip price varies according to worldwide demand & also the value of sterling against the US dollar.  There are some USBs being sold that use sub-standard or re-worked chips.  At Something Different we use only new chips from major makers such as Sanyo.  Taking memory size into account, relative prices have fallen consistently over time.

  • Styles
    Whilst there are many shapes availble, the most popular style is the Twister.  It can be printed or engraved, have the body Pantone matched to your colour - & there is no cap to lose.  A large range of styles are shown on our website.

  • Upload your data
    In addition to having your logo on the USB, why not consider having information, pictures or a message pre-loaded so that it appears on start up?  It can be over-written later if required.  All Something Different USBs can have data & pictures uploaded at no extra cost.

  • Packaging
    USBs are usually supplied bulk packed in a polybag, for a very small extra cost we can suply an individual box & lanyard if required
