USB Memory Prices Continue to Fall

It doesn't seem like all that long ago when USB memory prices were sky high, as the brand new technology began to seep into the marketplace. The applications of the hardware were always very obvious, allowing users to transfer their data between computers quickly and easily just by plugging a pocket-sized USB device in to the original computer, copying the files onto the memory with a few simple clicks, and then putting the USB drive into any other computer to copy the data.

As a data transfer solution it was far more time effective than constantly burning optical media like CD-RW or DVD-RW, and more versatile than using an external hard drive. However, in the early days the high cost of the technology represented a barrier for many - especially if they required a large amount of space to save their files.

Fortunately, the one thing that you can count on when it comes to technology is that the prices will only ever go one way; downwards. As manufacturers begin to master the processes involved to create items such as USB Memory in large quantities, the cost associated with them gradually begins to fall, while the specifications of the hardware itself continues to rise.

It's not all that long ago that 16GB would have been huge storage space for a desktop computer, now it is common to find USB memory prices of under £30 for that amount of space!

As price continues to drop and the capacity of the drives get larger and larger thanks to advancements in the field of flash technology, who knows where it will end? Whatever the end result, it is certainly no bad thing for the consumer to have such a wealth of choices, as well as affordable USB memory prices available at their fingertips.
