Even though the available USB flash drives in Canada are always designed to store data for years, this is not always the case. This is because they are many different varieties of these memory sticks available in the market. They are not only of varying quality, but also vary in the features that are built into each device.
One of the biggest problems that most people encounter is the unpredictable memory of some of the USB flash drives in Canada. This is where the device does not store data as expected. For example, an 8 GB drive may only store a dozen media files, yet it is capable of string more. Often the memory sectors on the drive are often faulty.
The speed of the Drive is important depending on the capacity of the drive that you are going to buy. The USB 1.1 worked fine for drives that were about 128mbs since the 12mbs per second did not have huge implications for drives of that size.
The 2.0 standard was necessary once the capacity of the drives went up to over 2 GB. The amount of data on the USB drives available in Canada needed more speed. Now there are drives that are 1 TB/s and therefore there is need for higher speeds that are available on the 3.0 standard.
There is also the problem that many people have probably encountered when using this device. The device may get spoiled once you remove it from the computer when transferring files or when a related application is open.
There is the ultra stable technology that a few of the USB flash drives sold in Canada have. This features simply protects the device from being corrupted incase you remove it prematurely. It is not absolutely necessary, if you choose to be careful and stopped the device before removing it from the computer.
