All About USB Flash Drives

Types of Storage Devices

It has been a long journey of research, discovery, and conversion before arriving at the point when USB memory sticks were finally introduced. Do you remember the painful speed and inconvenience of Floppy Discs and CD’s… Who could have thunk it? That this miniature, fit in your wallet and pocket device could store data in various formats: Mp3, Mp4, MS Word, Excel, PPT, etc moreover we could store and share files a lot easier than before. USB flash drives made their first debut in late 2000.

We kicked off the new millennia with Type-A USB memory sticks that only have a transfer rate of 60 MB/sec, a world of difference when compared to the previous 7.5 MB we were accustomed to using CDs. Type-A USB pen drives are still the industry standard today.

In later times we would be introduced to the Type 3.0 USB, it has a transfer speed 10 times that of the 2.0, 625 MB/sec. With all things considered, imagine being able to transfer a 1 Gigabyte file in only 2 Seconds! Impressive! Now the latest and fastest variants USB ports include the 3.1 and 3.2 USB flash drives with a whopping transfer and readability speed of 1250 MB/sec and 2500 MB/sec, respectively.
