16GB USB flash drives for portable storage
As the capacity of USB flash drives has increased exponentially over the past few years, so has their usefulness for data storage and transfer between machines. And with 16GB USB flash drives now so widely available, everyone can share the convenience and security of their own personal drive.
What can 16GB USB flash drives hold?
16GB USB flash drives hold as much data as many smartphones, which means thousands of your favourite photographs, hours of music or even a full-length movie or two. And unless you work with complex graphics, a 16GB USB flash drive should be more than enough for backing up, storing and transferring your work data.
Choosing 16GB USB flash drives
The most important factor in choosing USB flash drives is the connections available on the computers you want to use it with. USB connections range from slow, basic USB 1.0, at a mere 12Mbits per second, to the very latest USB 3.2, which has mind blowing speeds as high as 20Gbits per second.
Using 16GB USB flash drives
Another factor to consider is what you are going to use your 16GB USB flash drives for. You can choose the shape, colour and even the branding on your USB drive to match its purpose and help it stand out, both on your desk and in a crowded marketing arena.
You can even arrange to have your 16GB USB flash drives bespoke printed or engraved to bring the traditional wedding photo album or prom night pictures right up to date as a wonderful memento for your friends and family.
Branded or unbranded?
Choose from SanDisk 16GB USB drives or those from Kingston. And if your data is important to you, you may want to pay the extra for a name you know. Alternatively, you can save on your computer storage drives by buying lesser known brands or unbranded drives.
