Greetings from BestCustomFlashDrives.com, your leading provider of custom USB flash drives!
We sell a lot of flash drives to the promotional market around here, and people often ask how much stuff can fit on a USB drive and what size to buy. So here’s a little bit of info that we hope will be helpful.
Today the most popular memory size for giveaways and premiums is 2GB. So, here are some approximations of how much will fit on a drive:
For a 1GB drive you can fit about:
375 MP3 files (for average length song) or…
950 PowerPoint presentations or…
1900 photos or…
15,000 Excel worksheets or…
4000 Word documents or..
About 3 hours of MP4 video.
So for a 2 GB Drive, double it, a 4GB drive quadruple it, and so on.
All of this of course varies depending on how far from the “average size” each of your files is, but this should at least give you a good idea of how much will fit.
Currently there is not much price difference between a 1GB and a 2GB drive, and of course with a 2GB you get twice the memory capacity as the 1GB, so why not? (How’s that for an upsell?!)
Let us know if you have any questions on data uploading to USB drives, we can do that for you for your order so when you receive your drives they’ll be ready to go.
