USB Flash Drives / Memory Sticks

Find Great Deals on USB Flash / Pen Drives, including keys with USB 3.0 support from SanDisk, Kingston, Transcend, Verbatim and Integral

USB Flash drives are portable storage devices that utilise flash memory with an integrated USB (Universal Serial Bus) interface. Even with the availability of cloud based or Network Attached Storage (NAS), these handy pocket-sized drives support the need to transfer, transport and store data on the fly.

Also referred to as pen drives, memory keys, thumb drives, jump drives, USB memory sticks or USB keys, they are smaller and more compact than portable hard drives. Ideal for storing data, transferring files and sharing multimedia, they also benefit from being fast and near-indestructible - making them ideal for mobile business professionals and frequent travellers. Available in a range of designs and sizes from simple 2GB USB flash drives to high capacity 64GB, 124GB and 256 GB keys, the very largest drives now exceed 1 TB of storage.

Things to consider before buying a USB Flash Drive

Secure, reusable and much easier to transport than other types of external data storage, USB flash drives do not require an external power source and have decreased in size in recent years. But which one is right for your needs? There are several things to keep in mind when shopping for a drive at Misco...

Capacity

To be sure that you have enough space for all your data, check the average size of files you plan to store on your flash drive:


4 or 8GB Flash drives 16GB Flash drives 32GB Flash drives or more
If you are only using a flash drive to back up text documents and JPEG photos, a 4 or 8 GB flash drive should be enough as a pen drive of that size can hold hundreds of files. Large and high-quality photos, tables, charts, documents with graphics and music files occupy much more space and will require a 16 GB drive. If you are working with videos, art files, audio files or complex graphics technology, it will be worth investing in a 32 GB or higher flash drive.

Security

With files of a sensitive nature (business contracts, personal and professional financial documents, presentations or family pictures) it is highly advisable to buy drives that come with password protection and/or fingerprint recognition technology.

Durability

As USB pen drives have few components, they are a relatively robust form of storage, limited only by the number of write cycles (lifespans) which, on average, fall in the range of 3,000 to 5,000*

If you frequently use a drive to move files from one device to another, consider more durable versions encased in metal such as anodized aluminium. This will help protect the drive's internal circuitry, as cheap USB flash drives are more likely to fail through physical damage.

* more than four years of life where a pen drive is typically used twice every single day.

File Transfer Speed

Transfer speed is an important factor to consider. USB 3.0 is much faster than USB 2.0, but the standard must be supported by both the USB port and the drive itself. If your flash drive is USB 3.0 but your computer’s port is USB 2.0, transfers will happen at USB 2.0 speeds*.

*USB 3.0 transmits data at approximately 100 MB/s while USB 2.0 at 15 MB/s.

Unit design

Flash drives are created in many different eye-catching designs. While some of these are legitimately useful, attractive but inexpensive drives tend to feature lower capacities (1 or 4GB drives), while the quality of internal circuitry may also be lower shortening their lifespan.

Compatibility

Flash drives feature USB 2.0 connectivity or newer USB 3.0 technology which offers dramatically improved data transfer rates. All USB3.0 devices are compatible with USB2.0 ports on laptops, desktop PCs and other computer hardware.

In addition, our range of encrypted flash drives are ideal for businesses / organisations where increased levels of data security are required to safeguard sensitive information.

Misco offer a comprehensive selection of USB keys from top brands such as SanDisk, Kingston, Transcend, Verbatim and Integral.
