6 Simple Things to Check Before Buying A Pen Drive
You can consider the pen drive as your wallet, just like we keep our money in the wallet, in the same way we can keep our photos, films and documents related to our essential work etc. .
Pen drive is non volatile memory i.e. such memory in which data remains safe even when it does not get electricity, so the data in it is not automatically deleted and remains safe for a long time.
There are many types of pen drives in the market, there are different companies of pen drives, the size is different, even the speed and color are different and that is why the price of pen drive is also different.
1. Pen Drive Speed
Pen drive speed should always be kept in mind while buying a pen drive, there are 2 types based on pen drive speed. Pen Drive 2.0 (USB 2.0) and Pen Drive 3.0 (USB 3.0).
The speed of Pen Drive 2.0 (USB 2.0) is less than that of Pen Drive 3.0 (USB 3.0), so whenever you take data from your computer to the pen drive or put data from the pen drive to the computer.
So in both the cases the time taken to receive or give data depends on whether your pen drive is pen drive 2.0 (USB 2.0) or pen drive 3.0 (USB 3.0).
Where while taking data from computer in Pen Drive 2.0 (USB 2.0) the speed can be up to 40MBPS, while inserting data into the computer (write time) speed can be from 6 to 10MBPS.
Whereas while taking data from the computer in Pen Drive 3.0 (USB 3.0), the speed can be from 40MBPS to 300MBPS.
At the same time, while putting data in the computer (write time) the speed can be up to 10–120MBPS.
The difference between both the pen drives is that the port of pen drive 2.0 (USB 2.0) is black in color and the port of pen drive 3.0 (USB 3.0) is blue.
But you should buy Pen Drive 3.0 (USB 3.0) only if your computer has a USB 3.0 port, older computers mostly have USB 2.0 port.
2. Pen Drive Size
We should buy only pen drive with high capacity but while buying pen drive also see our requirement.
Because if your work will be done with 8GB, 16GB pendrive then what is the benefit of buying 32GB pen drive
And as technology is developing, the price of pen drive is decreasing, 10 years ago from today I had bought 2 GB pen drive in winning money, today 32 GB pen drive is easily available in that money.
3. Pen Drive Quality
Pen drives come in both metal and plastic types, it has been seen that the metal pen drive that lasts for a long time.
And a little more expensive than a plastic pen drive, plastic pen drives break after using for a long time.
4. Pen Drive Brand
While buying a pen drive, it should also be kept in mind that we should buy pen drive of a good company i.e. branded company.
Because good company pen drives may be a bit expensive but they last longer whereas unbranded or local pen drives get damaged quickly and also break quickly.
5. Pen Drive Warranty / Guarantee
While buying a pen drive, we should keep in mind whether there is a warranty card with the pen drive or the bill for that pen drive.
You must take warranty card / bill while buying pen drive because by taking warranty card / bill it is ensured that your pen drive is genuine
The advantage of warranty card is that if the pen drive gets damaged, then that company gives you a new pen drive in exchange for the damaged pen drive, some companies give 5 years and some 7 years warranty.
6. Pen Drive Design
While buying a pen drive, also pay attention to how it is designed, most of us keep pen drives in our pockets or purses, so while buying pen drives, keep in mind that they should not be sharp because they can tear your pocket / purse. , so the corners of the pen drive are curved / molded then it is good
If the pen drive has a hook, then it is easy to keep it with you because you can put it in the key rings of your car or bike.
