pollresp13 thumb   How Big Is Your USB Memory Stick? [MakeUseOf Poll]

This weeks poll is how big is your USB memory stick? Almost everyone I know carries around a memory stick in their pocket, bag and some of them keep them around their necks.

Up until recently I had a 1GB memory stick crammed with all sorts of wonderful portable goodness into it. But I never had room for the documents, music or other stuff that I wanted to carry with me. So now I have dropped $14 on a 16GB memory stick and $11 for a 8GB memory stick for my Wii. Now I carry around this 16GB stick which fits on all my portable applications as well as all my documents and files that I might need.

So we are wondering ““ if you carry a USB memory stick with you ““ how big is it? Let us know below and as always drop a comment to let us know what you carry on your stick.

Although I have an 8GB flash drive, I’ve found myself using it less and less since I’ve moved most of my important files into my Dropbox. Anywhere I need a file from a flash drive, I can access it via the Dropbox web interface.

I still use a flash drive for the really large files, as Dropbox isn’t the best way to handle those… yet.

Well let’s see. I have three, actually. The first and oldest one is a Kodak 1GB one–if you buy branded, they’re usually cheaper–that I bought back when 1GB went for 20$. The second one I got about 6 months ago–4GB for $20. Two weeks ago, I needed another thumb drive (for booting Ubuntu off of), so I went for another 4GB one for $13 (it was a Duracell branded one). (I know that there are cheaper out there, but these were all gotten at the local Target.)

I use Sony 8GB flash drive and I love it! I can’t live without it and for those who don’t have one, I encourage you to buy one. :)))

I have a 8GB Flash Voyager I use most of the time. I also got a relatively cheap 4GB from Microcenter for $15 for ChromeOS. My original Sony Vault 1GB is the only one that will work for ReadyBoost. Draw full of 1GB that were bought extremely cheap on sale.

Where did you get a 16 GB for $14?? Cheapest I’ve seen lately was $24.95.

It was an open box from a local store. But check out ebay i am sure you can find something similar.

8GB Corsair Flash Voyager (waterproof and all)
And I have such a small one because in my stupid third world country prices are astronomical.

Four sticks. 3 x 2Gb Cruzer SanDisks – #1, backup for when travelling; #2 software essentials; #3 Portable apps plus random data. 1 by very old 32Mb stick – copying small files when I am unsure of the PC it is going to connect with.

I have an 8GB flash drive, and I use it for running portable apps.

8GB loaded with utilities, commonly installed programs, windows updates and service packs for working on computers. It frequently used to load drivers too.

Jraz

16GB – Loaded with lots of stuff, utilities, videos, tools, drivers, apps, iso’s and it is bootable to Parted Magic. Worth every penny and I don’t leave hoem without it.

Jasmine

8 GB Sandisk Cruzer. Used for keeping some files handy.

Daysi

I do have a 2 GB stick. Wanted to buy a bigger one.. but then asked myself “Why?”. Flash drives don’t live forever… and the best (secure) medium is still CD/DVD.

Just moved from a 1GB pen to a 16GB pen :D

PQI I22 32 GB. Keep some installers for work, some pictures, and my college class homework.
